Discountoid: Atlus gets pimped out!

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.
