Discountoid: Snowboarding, cheap Xbox Live and more

6:00 PM on 01.18.2009 // Conrad Zimmerman

Something tells me they aren't as pure as the driven snow.

Time again for Discountoid. The deals are slim this week, but there are a couple that you should probably be paying attention to. First, Amazon has a great deal on 12-month Xbox Live cards, selling them for sixty percent of suggested retail. With the bonus month, that comes to  $2.30 a month for the service. Not bad at all.

Everybody has marked down Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip. Some are calling this a permanent price drop, which it probably is since every retailer on Earth seems to have reduced their price simultaneously. Oh, and check Best Buy for a great price on the new Prince of Persia.

Finally, don't forget that your local Circuit City is going out of business. The whole affair is being managed by a liquidation company, so there's no way of knowing how deep the discounts are going to go unless you visit the store but there are sure to be some deals available on games, hardware and other delights.

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.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.

Wanna ask a question for tomorrow's PStoid? You still have time! While you're at it don't forget to ask one for Riobux too!!

I caught a reflective mumbling about MGSV's open structure and how it doesn't sit well with me, to be published whenever I litter it with images.

I cracked and bought Final Fantasy Dimensions on Android last night. Half off sounded like just the right price, though I wish this came out on 3DS or even the Vita but at least it gives me something to do on the porcelain throne!

Those N64-era THQ wrestling games have actually held up really well over the years. Take that, nostalgia!

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.
