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.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.
