Discountoid: Valkyria Chronicles, Brothers in Arms, other cheap crap!

1:07 PM on 11.09.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman

He's gonna love her 'till the money comes.

And speaking of the money coming, it's time once again to collect this week's gaming deals in Discountoid. Valkyria Chronicles is seeing a nice little price reduction at Circuit City this week. And while you're there, check and see if your location is one of the 155 stores the retailer plans to close by year's end. Word has it that they have already started clearance pricing merchandise and games are reported to be 10% off.

Best Buy and Gamestop have slashed prices on Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway with a $30 reduction. And, if you're that one guy who planned to pre-order Left 4 Dead but haven't yet, Fry's Electronics will take a good chunk out of the price for you if you frequent their fine establishment to do so.

More deals follow the jump.

Defeated a sniper in MGS V by dropping supplies on his head. 10/10.

Traded in a bunch of old Star Trek novels and other books at a used bookstore. Made $10 and got Tori Amos' "Strange Little Girls" album along with it. They made me take the William Shatner novels back. Smart clerks.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.

Grim Fandango......some real good sruff here. As soon as I complete it (vita version, of course) will probably see about a write up. Not perfect, but theres some good stuff here. Glad it got brought back from obsolescence hell.

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

Guys, serious question... How can I make D-Horse to poop?
