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

12:57 PM on 11.02.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman

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 pick up for the waggle machine, it might be worth the effort to see what your local stores have in stock.

Meanwhile, Best Buy has a nice, exclusive bundle for Endwar on 360. For $90, they'll toss in a wireless 360 headset, saving you half the price of the accessory.  They are also giving away $20 gift cards with the purchase of select 360 games and accessories, but you'll have to buy two of them to get the promotion.

And, finally, if you were planning to grab Gears of War 2 this week, hop on down to Circuit City. They'll be giving away 1600 MS point cards with purchase of the game, so you can pick up some of the inevitable DLC that we'll be seeing.

All of the week's deals follow the jump.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.

Grim Fandango......some real good sruff here. As soon as I complete it (vita version, of course) will probably see about a write up. Not perfect, but theres some good stuff here. Glad it got brought back from obsolescence hell.

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

Guys, serious question... How can I make D-Horse to poop?

Goddammit @ FullmetalJ, you have poisoned my mind with...whatever the hell this is.[youtube][/youtube] It's so, so catchy. Go suck a baguette. And thanks :3. Yes I have listened to all of it.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?

Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!
