Discountoid: Big sales on Wii and DS, plus other bargains!

12:00 PM on 07.05.2009 // Conrad Zimmerman

My patriotism is not limited to merely one day. And it looks like I'm not alone. Acting in the American spirit of consumerism, there are some really good promotions this week. Finally, a little bit of rain in a rather long drought.

Best Buy is offering a "Buy 2 Get 3rd Free" sale on Nintendo DS games. Target went the "Buy 1 Get 1 Half Off" route and applied it to a slew of Wii games, some of which aren't even listed in their weekly ad so that the bargain hunter in you can hunt and peck for what's on sale. And Toys R Us is giving away gift cards with a number of titles.

Very solid week, overall. Hit the jump to see all of the week's bargains.

UK readers would do well to check out Gemsi's cblog, where he runs down the best deals available to you imperialistic bastards we broke away from.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.
