Amazon has the WWE All-Star Brawl Arcade Sticks on sale for $35 all week long. Like other modern Mad Katz sticks, they're built to be as easy to mod as possible and it's a pretty solid shell.
- If you've never had an arcade stick before and wanted to get a good starter stick, this is perfect. - If you have a Hori but didn't want to go through the effort of putting new buttons in it because it's not super simple, this is perfect - If you already have another stick but you want a cheap backup that you can easily pop some better buttons/sticks into, this is perfect - If you prefer to play with a gamepad, this is not perfect. You should buy a gamepad. This is not a gamepad. But it is $35.
I've got one of the 360 version (got them when Gamestop was clearning them out), and they are indeed pretty nice. And moddable from what I hear.
GOG.com now has an answer to the Humble Bundle, only it's the catalog of Interplay properties.
It's three-tiered: You get a handful of fairly unknown games from $1, 20 still-not-the-most-famous games from the average (currently a bit more than $13), and all the Interplay stuff combined (32 games, including the Fallout, Earthworm Jim and MDK series) from $34.99
The most well-known games are top-tier, but both the first and second tier also have some real gems.
Jagged Alliance: Unfinished Business, Shattered Steel, and Conquest of the New World are all super great and are available in the first tier. M.A.X is pretty good, as well!
The best games in the second tier are easily Stonekeep, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Descent 3 and Die by the Sword. Freespace is also really good, but Freespace 2 in the third tier makes it redundant.
Then there's the third tier, which is full of so many amazing games that trying to pick only a few standouts is remarkably difficult. Everything in tier 3 is worth playing, but my personal favorites include Descent 1&2, Fallout 1&2, Freespace 2, and Shogo.
Nearly every game in the bundle is well above average to super awesome, with only a handful that I don't much care for. This is a fantastic deal.
Spelunky will be on sale 50% off (600 points from 1200) on Black Friday on Xbox Live. For anyone who was waiting for it to drop to 800 points ($10) or below, that's the time to get I suppose.
Also the original 4 Sega Vintage collections are half off at 400 points a piece. That's the Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Monster World, and Alex Kidd & Co. collections for anyone who didn't know. These are all worth getting, but the Monster World collection is the best value, in my opinion.
NOTE: I have no idea if it will require you to have an active Gold membership or not. Typically, weekly sales require that you be Gold, but being that this is a one day Black Friday sale, it might be available to all. We'll just have to wait and see.

I randomly found a Starbucks App Pick of the Week code for Scribblenauts Remix. I thought I'd have an iPhone by now but this has not happened and might as well not waste a good code. If you live in the US and want the game for their iAnything, send me a PM. First person to PM gets the code.
