Discountoid: Cheerleaders, coaches and Wario, plus more great deals

10:00 AM on 01.04.2009 // Conrad Zimmerman

I have spent several hours combing through the internet to find just the right image for Discountoid today. It was very taxing work. Thank you, kind retailers, for putting All-Star Cheer Squad on sale.

Best Buy has a massive ad this week with a lot of games you probably don't care about. Of note, however, is the My Coach series of DS learning software, all of which is discounted by ten smackers. If you were looking for an excuse to bone up on your Japanese or Spanish, it might be time.

I dredged up some good prices over at Amazon as well. You can grab Disgaea 3 for under forty dollars, which sounds like a deal to me. Also (and this is old but I'm deeply passionate about the game), Dokapon Kingdom is twenty bucks, which is so worth it. It's one of the most fun party games I've ever played and a steal at that price.

Most of the other ads are fairly weak, but I would mention that Target is currently offering Wario Land: Shake It! at 40% below MSRP. Not too shabby.

Hit the jump to see all kinds of crazy bargains.

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Today I replated bacteria that I made take up a plamid hopefully stitched onto the genes generatlight. Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.

It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?

I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.

Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.

Yay, I got off of work early and may have Friday off! I have a sinking feeling I'm going to work 10 hours on Saturday as a result, though :/ We ran out of stuff to make stuff with so they must ship us stuff so we can ship stuff.
