Discountoid: Only a few shopping days left!

2:00 PM on 12.21.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman

There's a little something for you to enjoy this holiday.

We're in the last week before Santa comes down chimneys everywhere, which means we're looking at the last of the bargains before the world ends in a fiery inferno of Christmas spirit. Or people will just wake up, exchange gifts and enjoy time with their families. One of those two things is definitely going to happen this week.

If you're still planning on the latter, you might want to check out some of the deals retailers have going on in the final run to the end of the season. Target has a great price on the Guitar Hero World Tour guitars bundle. Best Buy has cut the price of their EndWar package (featuring a wireless headset) nearly in half. And Circuit City is still going out of business in a lot of places and should have games discounted up to 40% (though the pickings were fairly slim last time I visited).

Hit the jump to see all the goodies you could put under your tree this week.

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.

Just ate a disgusting amount of sugary wonders in a Fat Tuesday blowout. Chocolate (birthday) cake, Oreos, brownies, cookie dough, and some creme brule thing. Satiation by way of eat-'til-you-puke is what Shenanigans says!

Is there any real difference between the PS3 and the PS4 versions of Valkyria Chronicles?

By the way, that IGPX collection is a new release. It's the first time the show is available in a complete package, and the first time it's been available in any format in about 10 years. [url][/url]
