Discountoid: Moon, Wario Land: Shake It! and more great deals

9:00 AM on 02.15.2009 // Conrad Zimmerman

I was going to justify this image with a convoluted comment on how President's Day is on Monday and without the Great Emancipator, we would not have a word like "badonkadonk" in the popular lexicon. Then I realized that Moon received a great price drop this week. Further proof that the simplest explanations are almost always the best ones.

Let's do that Discountoid thang. As mentioned, GameStop has cut the price of Renegade Kid's Moon by over 30%, which is pretty sexy for a game Dale North enjoyed. Target also has Wario Land: Shake It! for a great price that you should check out.

And then there's... not much. President's Day is known for having great sales, but they're usually limited to bigger ticket items like appliances. I think the retailers figure folks are going to be in stores anyway. Although, there might be a few surprises in store for you if you click the link below and see the full list of deals this week.

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.
