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.

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Forgot to mention that I celebrated completing Persona 4: Golden by binging on a bunch of totally in-canon doujins. Including, but not limited to, Yu on genderswap't Yosuke. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Ex0MgjW.jpg[/img]

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale! Get a free Stealth Inc. 2 maybe? I dunno. Just signal boosting for no particular reason. Maybe 'cause I got a free game? Least I could do. https://www.humblebundle.com/store
