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

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.

The Witcher 3 is 30% off on GOG.com, if you thought it was a bit expensive at launch. You get store credit too.

Realized I've turned on my PS3 in the past month or two only to watch Mario cartoon DVDs. I really need to get around to playing something - anything - on it.

Listening to Studio Ghibli Collection at work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_WbO_LPXDo Reminds me that my dad really liked Howl's Moving Castle. He's retired military and serious most of the time but rather enjoyed its fanciful world.

Traded in a bunch of old Star Trek novels and other books at a used bookstore. Made $10 and got Tori Amos' "Strange Little Girls" album along with it. They made me take the William Shatner novels back. Smart clerks.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.

Grim Fandango......some real good sruff here. As soon as I complete it (vita version, of course) will probably see about a write up. Not perfect, but theres some good stuff here. Glad it got brought back from obsolescence hell.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.
