Amazon, Humble Bundle, GOG, and more.

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the holidays are here, and that means all the businesses, such as Steam, are holding their big sales. We've rounded up some of the major sales from the major video game sellers to help you save money this holiday season.

Amazon's Nintendo Switch deals 

If you're looking to add a classic game's remake to your Switch library, Link's Awakening has its best deal on a physical copy currently going on at Amazon. But what if you're looking to get more controllers for your Nintendo Switch? Amazon is selling individual Joy-Con controllers, both red and blue, and while there's no discount on them, this will be the only way to get them by Christmas based on Amazon's shipping dates.

Epic Games offers epic deals

Starting yesterday, Epic Games has brought us deals of up to 75% off on select games and add-ons. Some of their newest and biggest titles, like Watch Dogs: Legion, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, are on sale along with older indie titles such as The Escapists 2 and SUPERHOT. If you're more curious about free games, MudRunner is currently the Epic Games free game of the week. Next week on December 3rd, Cave Story+ will be up for grabs, although there may be some unfortunate timing there with the latest bit of Nicalis controversy.
