Discountoid: The Frugal Boys of Boston, protecting bewbs and more bargains!

3:03 PM on 10.05.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman

That's how I always visualize Steven Tyler.

Time again for Discountoid! It's hard to muster up a whole lot of excitement this week, but we do have a few deals worth mentioning.

First up, it's not a bad week to pick up some Guitar Hero. Toys R Us has all of their Guitar Hero III and Guitar Hero: Aerosmith bundles on sale for $20 off. If you already have all the plastic guitars you need and just want to "Walk This Way," Best Buy can save you $10 on the standalone Aerosmith title.

Next, Circuit City is offering some decent discounts on a few first-party titles for Wii. Smash Bros Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy and others are enjoying $10 to $15 off.

This isn't so much a deal, but I thought it was worth bringing up. If you're a fan of breasts (melons, jugs, fun bags, naughty pillows, etc.) and the women that carry them, Nintendo has released a DS supporting the Susan G. Komen foundation. Pick one up and the Big N will donate $5 to the organization that's fighting the fight for snack trays everywhere.

The full list of this week's deals lies beyond the jump. And, if you're looking for something else to use all of that fat loot you're saving, might I suggest donating it to torment Jim Sterling help sick kids? Cough up some of that green over at the SingSterling donation page.

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 cast my little worm in to the pond for a topic to try to make a blog about today. I fish fish fish but nothing bites bites bites.

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.

If anyone's playing Marvel Puzzle Quest (any platform) you should join my Alliance, RedRightHand, and help me kick some Galactus butt for their second anniversary event. (Please?)

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

[img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.
