Discountoid: Too Human, Mirror's Edge, EndWar and more

12:20 PM on 03.01.2009 // Conrad Zimmerman

Time for deals? Okay, in all seriousness, I found this image attached to a blog and spent twenty minutes scrolling through years of updates trying to discern what the context for it was. I was disappointed. Not in the boobs, mind you, but the content did not live up to the hopeful expectation.

Speaking of which, we have another highly disappointing week when it comes to bargains. Best Buy has only one game on sale this week, and it's a measly ten bucks off of Left 4 Dead, but they do have the Xbox Live bundle with chatpad and 12-month service at a really good price.

Gamestop does a bit better, although most of the games aren't things I'm interested in. They still manage to do better than Target, who have absolutely no games on sale this week. Depressing.

All of this means that I had to scour Amazon extra hard this week, but I did come up with a few good deals.  Lost Planet for PS3 has a decent sale price, as does Tom Clancy's EndWar for PS3 and 360. 

All the week's deals, as usual, follow the jump.

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

Anyone know if the Bethesda games on sale on Amazon for a certain amount of time, or through Monday?

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!
