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.

'That's the best news I've heard in a long time!' Really, Fallout 4 NPC? You mean since the last time you had me kill another bunch of raiders at the exact same location? I'll pass along your thanks to Preston Garvey, by applying my boot to his bollocks.

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

Does it mess with anyone else's head that when beating a SMBW level in Mario Maker the music doesn't do that little 'booowoo oop' at the end. [youtube][/youtube]

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]

So it seems I've locked into the Neutral ending for SMT IV and now I need to find specific challenge quests and complete them...? How (un)fun! Google is your friend - the videogame.

Interested in playing some Pathfinder? Trying to arrange a Dtoid Pathfinder group for Saturday nights (GMT) on Skype & Roll 20. If you're new to pen-and-paper RPGs, I don't mind at all and can bring you up to speed quick. Just comment if interested.

Local convention had a great selection of game soundtracks 5 for $20! I got Halo 3: ODST (2 disk!), Gears of War 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Darksiders 2 (2 disk!), and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Some of the best soundtracks of the last 7 years!

Machine-washed my Wii Fit meter yesterday by accident. Took the battery out and let it dry for the night. Luckily the meter still worked - but it had counted a fair number of steps more that day.

After reading a blog post about DMC4 I decided to watch all the cutscenes on Youtube. Tried the games years ago and couldn't get into them, but man that shit was stylish. Likeable protagonists, intense drama... still think DmC reboot wasn't that bad tho.

Just a reminder that you have until the 30th to get your Bloggers Wanted post, "Thankful it's over" in. I'm either going to tell you how I ruined my best online gaming experience or rip Twilight Princess a new one. Maybe both.

Huh. I just found out the developers of Hatred (remember that controversy?) region-locked their game to prevent it from being accessed by Australians. Destructive Creations are more censor-happy than Nintendo, it seems. Where's the outrage?
Oh yeah, I have an account on this site.

Got Resident Evil 4 Wii for $5. Uh ... this might be my favorite version. I'm just getting headshots nonstop. Did I miss any other Wii games that are frequently overlooked? Like, really obscure Wii games that no one talks about? I'm interested.
