Discountoid: Gift Cards Galore

3:26 PM on 10.26.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman
  @ConradZimmerman

I hope you like Gift Cards, because an exceptionally large chunk of this week's deals are giving them away. Circuit City currently has ten titles with $10 Gift Card offers. Gamefly has dropped prices on a whole slew of used games that are worth taking a gander at. Meanwhile, everyone else has a pretty meager offering in the ad circulars, with the exception of Best Buy's $20 drop on Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. 

The interesting thing, however, is how much real estate the games are taking up in the ads. Several of the circulars this week had twice the amount of space devoted to videogames as I'm used to seeing, which can only mean one thing. Can you say, "Christmas ramp-up?" I knew you could.

Hit the jump to see all the deals this week.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.

Could you stop calling Metal Gear Solid V Kojima's "swan song?" He's not retired, for crying out loud.

Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.

So the 3DS Dragon Quest VII remake is coming to mobile in Japan, so there's a chance that version will get ported over here. Not ideal but if we get it at all I'll be happy!

Put down the deposit for my new car, will probably be able to pick it up on the weekend. Insurance is pretty good too, sub £1000 which is excellent. Kinda. My mum tried to reverse in 5th gear. She drives an automatic. What a noob. :P

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.
