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

1:08 PM on 10.19.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman

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.

I have now played all 3 Witcher games. My verdict: Witcher 1 - alright, aged badly, lots of sex. Witcher 2 - good, very short, not much sex at all. Witcher 3 - Excellent in every way.

I really wish MGO had been implemented with free-roam gameplay PMC (clan) setup instead of the standard matchmaking. Imagine roaming bands of PMC's opposing each other on the battlefield. How sexy would that be?

Added a humble code to my steam account when I already had the game. Purely because the soundtrack was attached. Now I see it on 2 friends wishlists. They must never know.

What's up with taking your phone or a magazine to the toilet? Y'all need more fibre in your diet, why should a toilet visit take more than 2 minutes? What are you people doing with your asses.

It feels like each day I get up, do the rounds of my bookmarks, and am immediately brought down by kneejerk hate: new stuff, old stuff, last nights stuff, 2moros stuff, a game, a film, TV. Critical thinking is fine, but dang, pure cynicism's winning :(

Metal Gear Online, Day 2. The maps in this game are amazing. Try out all 3 classes, because they're all pretty different. Really getting the hang of the game now.

I love how Final Fantasy Record Keeper is making a big deal about being able to unlock FF XII's Vaan. I do get to unlock Ashe though, so that's cool.

Next year, we get a new Fire Emblem game, a sequel to SMT IV, Persona 5 and people are STILL getting their knickers in a bunch about SMTxFE? I can summon the bisexual interdimensional stalker dark mage, Tharja, in that game. I am sold on all of this.

DMC4:SE, I've had fun playing this game again. Surprised I remembered so much of it though, sucks we'll probably never see Nero and his badass Devil Buster again. I still love that shit.
