Discountoid: Cheap Rock Band bundles, buy 2 get 1 free and other deals!

GameStop has dropped $30 off the price of Rock Band bundles, what with the bundles for Rock Band 2 coming out this week. If you don't care about the improved instruments, it's not a bad deal. Also, they are having a buy 2 get 1 free sale on all used games this week, so it might be a good opportunity to stock up on some things you may have missed at release.

Elsewhere, the Rock Band 2 bundles are getting some gift with purchase promotions. Best Buy has a free set of drum shades. I'm not sure what good drum shades are going to be, but they're giving them away. Meanwhile, Circuit City is offering up a free T-shirt. 

And, finally, Amazon has several games on clearance. Titles like The Club and  Two Worlds are pretty cheap, but The Darkness is the best deal at less than $5. It isn't a great game, but absolutely worth playing at that price if you haven't tried it yet.

Hit the jump for our roundup of this week's bargains.
