Doom 3: BFG Edition for Nvidia Shield TV is $5 (half off) for Black Friday

Halloween has come and gone, but spooky games are always a good time. More horror-inspired than the killtacular Doom reboot from 2016, 2012's Doom 3: BFG Edition (BFG stands for "big fun game," I think) is equal parts creepy and violent, and it's half off this week for Black Friday.

Call Screen was arguably the most impressive feature Google debuted at the Pixel 3 launch event.
