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

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.

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale! Get a free Stealth Inc. 2 maybe? I dunno. Just signal boosting for no particular reason. Maybe 'cause I got a free game? Least I could do. https://www.humblebundle.com/store

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.
