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?

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?

Voting for Broforce made me think of the most American person that could ever exist. President Michael Wilson!

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]

This is your daily reminder that Taxi Driver is the best movie ever and if you disagree then all I can say is: God, you're square.

I love when someone at work tries to claim you screwed up on something and it completely backfires on them. I try to help them save face afterwards, but secretly I'm like...

I still love Tearaway Unfolded despite the shit pacing and hell yeah I'm going for that plat. It'll be my 2nd plat, first since Sly 2 Remastered back in 2012. So it's been a while. gotta beat the game first tho :P
CoilWhine avatarCoilWhine
Tearaway Unfolded's final level is my least favorite kind. Life is Strange-esque linear path (through a void) of moments from the game. Bleh.
Shinta avatarShinta
Gravity Rush Remastered looks reallllllyyyyyy nice. Video and screenshots didn't quite do it justice. Seeing it in person is much better.
