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

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.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?

Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.
