Discountoid: Sports games, Guitar Hero and more!

2:30 PM on 03.29.2009 // Conrad Zimmerman

Time again to round up some of the week's better bargains.

Things have been a little slow as of late, but they appear to be picking up again. Amazon has several of the 2K sports games at strong savings and a few other titles at deep discounts. Best Buy is still running a little on the weak side, focusing on DS and Wii titles, but Call of Duty: World at War could be grabbed while keeping Hamilton in your pocket a little longer. They also have the wireless Les Paul guitar controller for 360 at fifty percent off with a further $10 savings if you buy Guitar Hero: Metallica.

Fry's Electronics has returned to Discountoid with their characteristic one game worth having, but it's a good deal nonetheless. Grab the new Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for Wii at a nice savings. Target also seems to be focusing on Guitar Hero, putting several iterations on sale.

Finally, if you've been holding out on getting Madden 07 for your PlayStation 2, GameStop has you covered by putting it at a phenomenal $5. No, that's not a typo. I can only assume that they're gearing up for their massive, annual Game Days sale next week and just decided to blow this one off.

All the deals, as usual, lie in wait after the jump. Going to be picking anything up this week?

I think Microsoft takes the cake for worst console updates. The XBone UI is worse and the fucking controller had an update. What the hell has gaming become?

Well, that's a wrap for the Bloodborne DLC. I liked it. More thoughts and maybe spoilers in the comment section.

a rainy afternoon, and too sleepy for games. Time to go to the animal shelter and try not to fall asleep, surrounded by kittens.

Community Question: Following from yesterday's Community Question, how would you feel if reviewers began assigning two scores to a game? One specifically for the technical aspects/performance of the game, and the other for their own personal enjoyment?

I went back to Persona 4 Golden this weekend, asked Chie to be my girlfriend but then accidentally maxed out my social link with Yumi, changed my relationship status to "It's Complicated" on Personabook. [img][/img]

You know what Fallout 4 mod I want to see? One to fix the interior lightning. It's like the silliest thing to get fixated over, but I can't seem to ignore how white and bright some of those inside lights are.

Well, it seemed like for two seconds people were finally going to give Star Fox a fair shake, but nope! GameXplain's YouTube audience seem pretty insistent that it's just a Star Fox 64 clone down to the graphics. Sometimes I just don't understand peopl

I don't think it will happen, but if the NX is turns out to be a VR device, I will be the saddest boy in the milky way.

There's something so fucking delicious about a toasted Hawaiian roll, smoked ham, Swiss, some spinach and a dollop of mustard. #FatKidPosts

Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one. It was pretty neat!

Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wondering

In light of the fact that Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, I suggest we start planning out a Destructoid Squad! NNID is TysonOfTime. From what I've heard, it doesn't appear Squads are region locked (except for Japan), so everyone's welcome!
