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.

I wish more cartoony games would come out. Nintendo makes plenty but there should be more high quality games with whimsy. Where's Jak IV? A proper Crash? Anything that doesn't just involve mashing one button? Realism is fine, but there's a LOT already.

Okay, that's Fallout: New Vegas done. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

R steepled her fingers and smiled as she looked over at S and Z. "We have stopped two shipments of breasts from making it to America as well as Europe, meaning those will be added to our boob coffer. In time, all the breasts shall be mi... I mean, ours.."

I finally backed Indivisible. After hearing about Red from Transistor, I played the demo again. That platforming is solid and I'm used to the combat now.

Man, I completely forgot how awesome Pokemon Black and White's soundtrack is. The Vs. Trainers theme is probably one of the best I ever heard, if not the best in the entire series: [youtube][/youtube]

Indivisible's campaign is over $1.4 million! just a little more!
Dum, dum, dum! Another blog bites the dust! And another done, and another done! Another blog bites the dust! #RIPtumblrbecausefuckit

Ugh, I've been sick for what feels like 3 weeks. If I die I leave all my games casket because they're mine. Stay away! *hiss, hiss*

Apparently the upcoming Tri-Force heroes update makes the local-play only items possible to get for everyone. That's pretty great!

Playing For Glory earlier today, some guy beat me and changed his name to "ifukdu_up". I won next round and he changed it to "ILETUWIN". I then 2-0ed the little sucker, and he left the lobby. I took great pride from this incident.

Why the hell are we suddenly accepting micro transactions in fully priced games? It used to be only acceptable in free-to-play games but its sickening that even AAA developers like microsoft are on the bandwagon.

If you're ever writing about something from the heart, and you stop and think "I don't know how people will react to me if I write this" then you absolutely should go ahead. Passionate conviction is often the only voice you'll have.
