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.

Interested in playing some Pathfinder? Trying to arrange a Dtoid Pathfinder group for Saturday nights (GMT) on Skype & Roll 20. If you're new to pen-and-paper RPGs, I don't mind at all and can bring you up to speed quick. Just comment if interested.

Local convention had a great selection of game soundtracks 5 for $20! I got Halo 3: ODST (2 disk!), Gears of War 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Darksiders 2 (2 disk!), and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Some of the best soundtracks of the last 7 years!

Photos and videos are back on quickposts but clipping on some devices. We're going to add a new quickpost editing interface so photos and videos can only be displayed one way (a la twitter) to solve this. Also, a My cBlog link was added to your user menu

Machine-washed my Wii Fit meter yesterday by accident. Took the battery out and let it dry for the night. Luckily the meter still worked - but it had counted a fair number of steps more that day.

Finally killed Ludwig, now if I could only get passed the 2 hunters on the second floor. that 2 some is rather annoying,and her holy blade kills in only a few hits. wish mine was that strong.

After reading a blog post about DMC4 I decided to watch all the cutscenes on Youtube. Tried the games years ago and couldn't get into them, but man that shit was stylish. Likeable protagonists, intense drama... still think DmC reboot wasn't that bad tho.

Just a reminder that you have until the 30th to get your Bloggers Wanted post, "Thankful it's over" in. I'm either going to tell you how I ruined my best online gaming experience or rip Twilight Princess a new one. Maybe both.

Huh. I just found out the developers of Hatred (remember that controversy?) region-locked their game to prevent it from being accessed by Australians. Destructive Creations are more censor-happy than Nintendo, it seems. Where's the outrage?
Oh yeah, I have an account on this site.

Got Resident Evil 4 Wii for $5. Uh ... this might be my favorite version. I'm just getting headshots nonstop. Did I miss any other Wii games that are frequently overlooked? Like, really obscure Wii games that no one talks about? I'm interested.

Update: played through Hyper Dimension Neptunia Rebirth, reminded why I don't like the series, and requested a refund on it and its sequel. Not sure if they'll refund the sequel, but if they honor at least the first, I'll use that money to get Undertale.

I hope the new Star Wars movie answers the biggest question I have about the franchise; do Midi-Chlorians poop?
