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.

I have now played all 3 Witcher games. My verdict: Witcher 1 - alright, aged badly, lots of sex. Witcher 2 - good, very short, not much sex at all. Witcher 3 - Excellent in every way.

I really wish MGO had been implemented with free-roam gameplay PMC (clan) setup instead of the standard matchmaking. Imagine roaming bands of PMC's opposing each other on the battlefield. How sexy would that be?

Added a humble code to my steam account when I already had the game. Purely because the soundtrack was attached. Now I see it on 2 friends wishlists. They must never know.

What's up with taking your phone or a magazine to the toilet? Y'all need more fibre in your diet, why should a toilet visit take more than 2 minutes? What are you people doing with your asses.

It feels like each day I get up, do the rounds of my bookmarks, and am immediately brought down by kneejerk hate: new stuff, old stuff, last nights stuff, 2moros stuff, a game, a film, TV. Critical thinking is fine, but dang, pure cynicism's winning :(

Metal Gear Online, Day 2. The maps in this game are amazing. Try out all 3 classes, because they're all pretty different. Really getting the hang of the game now.

I love how Final Fantasy Record Keeper is making a big deal about being able to unlock FF XII's Vaan. I do get to unlock Ashe though, so that's cool.
