Discountoid: DS games galore, Persona 3 and so much more!

8:00 AM on 01.25.2009 // Conrad Zimmerman

It's a good week to be a DS fan.

I do believe it is time for another edition of Discountoid. GameStop and Best Buy both have a truckload of DS games on sale this week. The former has placed their focus on Ubisoft's library, while the latter has most of those and a few other tasty treats as well.

Also, turn your attention to Amazon this week if you haven't picked up Persona 3: FES yet. They currently have the limited edition with soundtrack on offer for almost half off their regular price. And while you're buying PS2 games, I'd recommend snagging Metal Slug Anthology for less than eighteen smackers.

All the deals come, as usual, after the jump.

Kotobukiya's making a Xenoblade Chronicles X Formula skell model that looks great but I'd rather have a Lailah model. And I would name it Tharja just like my Lailah in the game.

Damn you, TV Tropes. As if I wasn't already dead set against doing an Undertale genocide run, this has killed the possibility for me.

Yep, Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly is still as bad and unpolished as I remember it. Still manages to give me a headache too due to the choppy framerate.

Eye of the Beholder (2014) - Possible boss battle theme for a video game. Love the action strings and bell instrument. I wrote this song for 2AD14 - II, which has many great tracks on it. This one is one of my favorites, which is why I'm sharing it.

My favorite Pokemon doesn't give a fuck if it's 4x weak to ground or fighting. Aggron has enough defense to give you a dirty look after Earthquake.
