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.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img][/img]

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.

my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.

Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

Drew a preeeeeeety sweet thing for the August edition of Cblog Recaps. Keep an eye out for it!

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.

Stealth in Payday 2 gets infinitely easier once you get the Control Freak perk.

Why is there a 500mb day 1 update for mgs V?! Yay modern day video games.

What would you say are the worst/dumbest/stupidest/most useless job or class in an RPG?
Mike Wallace avatarMike Wallace
Could you stop calling Metal Gear Solid V Kojima's "swan song?" He's not retired, for crying out loud.

Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img][/img]
Cosmonstropolis avatarCosmonstropolis
Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.
