Discountoid: Too Human, Mirror's Edge, EndWar and more

Time for deals? Okay, in all seriousness, I found this image attached to a blog and spent twenty minutes scrolling through years of updates trying to discern what the context for it was. I was disappointed. Not in the boobs, ...

Discountoid: MK vs DCU, Dead Space and more deals

Nothing like a lazy sunday that gets turned into a rush to get things done because you've procrastinated. Lucky for me (less lucky for gamers), the deals are a little slim this week.Target has some of the better offers this w...

Discountoid: Moon, Wario Land: Shake It! and more great deals

I was going to justify this image with a convoluted comment on how President's Day is on Monday and without the Great Emancipator, we would not have a word like "badonkadonk" in the popular lexicon. Then I realized ...

Destructoid crossbones shirt - on sale for FOUR BUCKS until they're gone!
by Papa Niero

The good news: Nerdyshirts just informed us that they found a long-lost box of Topher's bot and crossbones shirt and are offering it up on their site just five dollars. You can't even buy a bacon swiss mushroom burger combo that cheap!  We expect these to vanish in a heartbeat so grab them while supplies last!

The even better news: They're also having a 20% off everything sale during the next 48 hours, including the five dollar shirt. Talk about good timing!  If you'd like to do some last minute shopping for people you love or would like to sleep with they've got a great selection. Just use the coupon code "lastminute" at checkout.

Enjoy!

You might want to check Circuit City again photo
You might want to check Circuit City again
by Dale North

We told you early last month that electronics retailer Circuit City was closing over 150 stores. That's big news, as they held up about 10% of the US games market. Damn this economy!

We saw their "everything must go" sales last month, but were not impressed. They discounted their games a measly 5%. What bullsh*t! You could do better than that discount just about anywhere, especially on the internet. That doesn't even take care of tax!

It's worth checking back now, provided you have a closing store near you. I checked in on a local store yesterday, and the prices were much lower than before. Games were 30% off, and they actually had a solid selection. New games were still on the racks, too. Both of Square Enix's recent RPG duds may not be worth $60, but how about $40-something? Fallout 3 was there, as were the limited editions of the new GTA and Saints Row 2. All cheap.

Game accessories were also 30% off. I didn't really want a PSEye, but got one for a good price. They had no controllers left, but they did have just about everything else. Strategy guides and the like were a whopping 70% off. Found several nice ones for only dollars.

If you're a PC gamer, titles were 40% off and the selection was very solid. PC software was 50% off, too. And if you're still gaming on stereo television speakers, you're missing out. Circuit City had some insane discounts on receivers and speakers.

Just in case you didn’t max out all your credit cards on Black Friday, online retailers have fabricated a new bastion of American consumerism in recent years: “Cyber Monday.” It’s the Monday after Than...

Discountoid: Another Buy 2 Get 1, bundled accessories and more

Target stores have their sights set on getting you to spend this week, with a buy 2 get 1 free promotion in their Sunday ad. The bad news? It's only on Wii games. Still, if there are a few first-party titles you have yet to p...
