The highly acclaimed real-time-strategy game is available for just $29 until the 28th.
Black Friday sales abound, but this one is particularly cool. It's a huge discount on 'StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty' that brings it from $59 down to $29. It's a significant markdown and it's even more significant because it's on a Blizzard game. They're a great company but they're not exactly known for marking down their prices. 'Warcraft III' is still $19 through their store, as is the expansion 'The Frozen Throne' and those games came out nearly a decade ago.
If you haven't played 'StarCraft II' and you have a computer that can handle it you should absolutely take advantage of this opportunity. The game received incredible reviews across the board and inspired an incredibly popular eSports scene to take off in America.
Of course, this is also a great opportunity to pick up a cheap Christmas presents for your friends. Whether you want to crush them with your 4-gate technique or you want to find a way for them to get interested in the GSL, you've got until Monday to pick it up. Oh, and you're limited to five, so you'll need to think of something different for the rest of the folks you know.
