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.

So, SMT IV: Final looks like it'll make fans of the older games happy. Especially fans of SMT 2.

Do games go in cycles like style? I mean, I think I can just as well play my 1993 Space Hulk (PC CD) instead of getting the moderately new Space Hulk instead.

Naruto 4 installs on my PS4 and it updates. Game says it can't run story mode during installation. Nothing's installing though. Restarted PS4. Reinstalled. Nothing. Fucking dumb.

This plays in my head every time I tell myself to stay determined.

Tonight, I learned what Flanx and MrNovember sound like in discord, listened to the best idea for a movie ever, and learned a little more about the depths of human depravity. A night well spent. Fuck us all.

So, the artist that they used for Street Fighter 5's story mode(the arcade one) is kinda...not good. Go look up Laura's CGs. Colors are pale, and proportions sometimes end up kinda bonkers. Like, "extreme hourglass figure" level of bonkers.

I'm loving these fighting game elitists trying to give me shit because I criticized Street Fighters Fight Money business model.

Thanks to Dtoid I now have this gif in my life, and I can't stop laughing. I seriously can't get over it.

Finished SOMA today , was able to do a second run without enemies with the "Wuss" mod, found it actually more frightening has you get more time to think about what is really going instead of doing hide-and-seek with the AI (Alien Isolation I miss you)

I stayed up late last Saturday writing a Dead Space 4 proposal outline. Solved every plot hole, had plenty of badass moments. This is the state I live in, people.

Finished my Storge set and 4/5ths of that was on the clock today o_O I also got a dragonlord eyepatch, which is totally practical covering the right eye when Cyndel's hair covers up the left eye.

So Zack Furniss told me I should play Dying Light on Hard. Guess who's never listening to Zack Furniss again? :-/

So Kanye just announced his new game, Only Once. It looks beautiful and personal. It's just a shame that I still have no idea what it is.

I dunno why people are getting so huffy about Windows Store / XbOne Quantum Break crossbuy. It means double the gamerscore for me, and AW and AW:AN are rereleasing on the One so I'll have owned them 3 times over. Great games.

I once considered pitching an idea for a Dtoid Australia podcast, but then I realised it'd probably just be Zyk and I getting drunk on Foster's and complaining about Atlus for half an hour each week while incessantly calling each other cunts.
