Black Friday and Cyber Monday are no longer 24-hour events, but shopping marathons with discounts drip-fed over weeks. It's easy to get swept up in the buying frenzy. Online shoppers spent a record $7.9 billion this Cyber Monday in the US, while UK retailer John Lewis smashed its sales records. Here on GamesRadar, we wrote more than 100 buying guides and deals articles to steer you through the Black Friday and Cyber Monday maelstrom – and that's only the deals we liked.

We consider Klipsch's R-15PM bookshelf speakers to be the best high-end option, based on price and performance. They sound great on their own, but if you add a subwoofer to the mix, they enter another level of awesome. What's also awesome is that Amazon is offering Klipsch's R-12SW subwoofer at a hefty discount today.The 12-inch sub is on sale for $289.99. That's not cheap, but it is $160 less than its regular $449.99 price, which is what Best Buy and Newegg want for it. It's also much lower than the average of what it's sold for over time on Amazon, which is $345 and change, according to CamelCamelCamel.What about Klipsch's smaller R-10SW? That's what we recommend pairing the R-15PM with in our speaker buying guide, and it happens to be on sale for $245.45 on Amazon. If you want to save a few bucks, that is still an excellent choice.However, with the larger model being marked down so much, you can go bigger and bolder without spending considerably more, which isn't always the case. We … [Read more...] about Save $160 on Klipsch’s 12-inch subwoofer and bring home the boom

Depending on who you talk to, the Monster Hunter series has a very mixed reputation. On the one hand, it has a ravenous fanbase that won’t hesitate to import the newest games. On the other, there’s a slew of confounded gamers who quit immediately after being locked in the lengthy potion-drinking animation. In an attempt to bridge the two extremes, Capcom rebooted the series with Monster Hunter: World, which addresses a lot of the complaints while maintaining the core thrill of the hunt.
