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

2:22 PM on 12.07.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman

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.

Also, I think my Wii U gamepad is on its last legs... the NFC reader is still kaput, the screen is rather smudgy and the L button is started to stick like a motherfucker. Sooner or later it's just going to stop working altogether methinks. :'(

Nintendo just sent me an email to say "Congrats on your new Wii U!". It wasn't new it got fucking FRIED and now all my stuff's gone after repairs - I was in Chapter 9! Chapter 9! 70+ hours on XCX! And that's just one game! I was- *walks off ranting*

Irony: over 9000!. The same UN with staff distributing child porn, Saudi Arabia heading its Human Rights Council and troops accused of rape wants to school Japan on their treatment of women in videogames. You can't can't make up this stuff.

So I got my game recorder. That's good! But I ordered the wrong one. That's bad. So just gotta send back to Amazon and order it. Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.

It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 total
