Discountoid: Ninja Gaiden 2 price-drop, Rock Band clearance, more cheap stuff!

3:02 PM on 09.28.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman

Another week, another edition of Discountoid. This time around, Ninja Gaiden 2 is seeing a permanent $20 reduction at a few retailers.

Circuit City has put their Rock Band bundles on sale to make room for the new Rock Band 2 product, so this might be a good time for you to save a little cash on some instruments if you don't mind using the older models.

Ramping up for the holiday season, GameStop is doing one of their trade-in promotions this week where every two 360, PS3 or Wii games you give them nets you an additional $10 in store credit.

And, with Silent Hill: Homecoming releasing this week, there are a few giveaways with purchase. Best Buy will inflict the horrifying (for the wrong reasons) DVD of Silent Hill with a purchase. I'm much more interested in getting my hands on the Pyramid Head keychain that Circuit City has on offer.

Hit the jump to see all the deals we scrounged up for you this week.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie coming in 2018... hopefully it's one of those "so bad it's good" movies at least.

Daniel Bloodworth from GameTrailers posted a neat retrospective of his time at the website.

The internet is so good, gives people without any power in real life a sense of purpose. Such as the Dtoid mod arbitrarily deleting my comments because I dislike the shit they like. "This will show him who's boss here", lol, impotent nerd.

Off to the new job shortly. Dunno if it's something I want long term, but I can't complain about the money. New laptop, phone, and consoles could be weeks away :D

Is it too late to write about the waifu wars? I don't really have one but there is a female character I have in mind that I want to talk about.

Bayo has high execution barrier and largely unsafe moveset but Witch Time is a huge saving grace. I bet people are double bitter with Corrin being in the game and being pretty reliable in terms of skillset. Definitely a safer and stronger choice than Bayo

I was playing Third Strike on PS3 with my PS4 controller and I tried using the dpad for the first and noticed that it doesnt take corner directional inputs. Is this normal for ps4 controllers on ps3?

I swear, it makes sense in context..... Kinda. Hmmm. Okay, not so much. [img][/img]

Skellige is so cool! It's like the land of Valhalla Rising.

God damn, Bernie Sanders is just killing it with this speech. Hitting basically every point. He even used the word "oligarchy." Probably the first time I've ever heard that word uttered on CNN. I think a lot of people in power are shitting their pants

In my haste to finally factory reset my tablet, I erased a blog I had worked on. Thankfully, it's fresh in my mind. It's another MGS blog, but it goes the opposite way of my last MGS blog. Pray this guy is not your husbando, for he is shit.
