Discountoid: MGS4 under 10% of 360 and other amazing bargains

See what I did there?

Time again for Discountoid. Generally, as the holiday season accelerates towards its inevitable climax, videogame deals hover right around where they are the rest of the year, with a little more emphasis on family-friendly titles and a lot of accessories. This season is anything but typical, however, so maybe we'll be seeing things get a little crazier in the coming weeks.

This week? Pretty much what I would expect. If you're into sports games, Circuit City is offering 25% off several titles. Toys R Us has savings available if you're willing to buy two games and Best Buy has Metal Gear Solid 4 for 30 smackers, which strikes me as quite reasonable.

Click the jump and see more deals.

Circuit City

A quick note about Circuit City: For some reason, I'm still unable to view their ad online, so the info on The City will be coming from our good friends over at Cheapassgamer for the forseeable future. I'm sure many people assume that I grab all my info from there, so I wanted to make sure that you know when I'm actually doing so.

I enter the Gamestop. I set a Toad plushie atop a Yoshi plushie. I set Mario to go down on Kirby. I leave the Gamestop.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

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