Discountoid: Atlus gets pimped out!

2:26 PM on 11.16.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman

I'd like to thank Amazon for giving me the opportunity (read: excuse) to post that image.

That's not the only reason to praise the online retailer this week, however. They've slashed prices on over a dozen titles published by Atlus. There's some quality stuff in their list going for as little as fifty percent of retail.  

Meanwhile, Best Buy is dropping a lot of Gift Card offers on both older and newer games. The already reasonably-priced Ninja Gaiden II will score you an additional $15 in store credit, along with a slew of other titles bearing a similar offer.

And, with City Folk right around the corner, Gamestop is offering previous Animal Crossing games at rather good prices. I, personally, have little interest in buying the third title in the series, but I can heartily recommend the original GameCube game at a $10 price point.

Follow the jump for more of this week's deals.

Forgot to mention that I celebrated completing Persona 4: Golden by binging on a bunch of totally in-canon doujins. Including, but not limited to, Yu on genderswap't Yosuke. [img][/img]

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale! Get a free Stealth Inc. 2 maybe? I dunno. Just signal boosting for no particular reason. Maybe 'cause I got a free game? Least I could do.

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.
