Amazon: $20 Advance Wars, $20 return on DS Lite

Amazon is currently stuffed full of great stuff for DS fans. Advance Wars: Days of Ruin is the latest Deal of the Day, though we're guessing that, with a $19.99 price tag, that one's gonna go fast. Or, if you happen to be in the market for a DS Lite, or a copy of Guitar Hero: On Tour, Advance Wars could be free. How? Amazon is currently offering a $20 gift card with the purchase of Guitar Hero or select Lite models. Not a bad deal for a couple of games and a peripheral, or a spankin' new DS Lite.

[Update: Reading comprehension suffers in the middle of the night. As a reader pointed out, the gift card deal is Guitar Hero: On Tour, plus a DS Lite, not one or the other. Less great deal, unless you were already looking for that combination! Thanks, Wiiboy!]

New York Times one half

With the release of Crosswords DS this week, will a $10 price cut compel you to buy New York Times Crosswords instead?

Amazon's "Deal of the Day" happens to be everyone's favorite alf-loving crossword game (again). While $10 for any game is hard to resist, keep in mind that puzzles from the New York Times are tough -- make sure you have the mental fortitude before picking this one up. You might also want to note, though, that Mother's Day will be here soon, and this might make a nice, cheap gift for DS-owning moms.

Here come Amazon's Gold Box deals [update 2]

Just a reminder to all you friendly folks in the U.S. -- Amazon is having crazy DS deals today.

The retailer kicked off its Gold Box sales awesomely, offering Advance Wars: Days of Ruin for $16.99. If we don't say so ourselves, that is damn sweet. You have until 12am Pacific time to bite on this, but we recommend getting it sooner rather than later because we doubt supplies will last.

As for the lightning deals, we've listed them here (with our guesses for ones that haven't been confirmed yet). Keep in mind, these are in Pacific time, and each deal lasts for four hours (assuming they don't go out of stock):
We suppose that with such an awesome "Deal of the Day," we can forgive Amazon for everything else being subpar. Keep in mind, though, that these are just our guesses. We'll update the post as other sales are confirmed.


[Update 1: Master of Illusion was confirmed as the second lightning deal and was added to the post.]

[Update 2: Transformers: Autobots is the third lightning deal. And, would you look at that -- Master of Illusion sold out. Who would have thought?]

Tomorrow's Amazon Gold Box rumored to feature DS games

The word on the street is that Amazon's next game-related Gold Box special is going to feature five DS games, which (as you can imagine) we're very excited about.

The first deal in the Gold Box is the video game "Deal of the Day," and will be made available tonight (technically tomorrow) at 12am Pacific time (or 3am EDT, if you're on the East Coast like this blogger). We know that's ridiculously late to stay up for a deal, but the beauty of it is that you don't have to. Whatever the game is (many are guessing Mario Kart DS because of the upcoming Wii game, but who knows!), it will be on sale for twenty-four hours or until stock runs out.

The other four sales are considered "Lightning Deals," since the marked-down prices only last for four hours (or while supplies last). The first of these will start at 6am Pacific time, while the rest will be made available at 10am, 2pm, and 6pm.

We have some ideas of our own, but what are you hoping to see on sale?

If you need a DS Lite adapter, today's the day to get one

Since the official DS Lite AC Adapter is a much better way to go about charging your DS than the crank we showed you earlier today, we thought we'd let you know that this accessory happens to be Amazon's video game related "Deal of the Day."

We assume that this is a useless deal for most of you, since DS Lites come with one, but we're sure some of you have either misplaced yours or want an extra for traveling. Still, be careful; while the adapter is marked off by $5 (meaning that it only costs $10), you'll have to pay for shipping unless you're a Prime member or find $15 worth of other merchandise to add to your cart. Without the free shipping, this really isn't much of a deal at all.

Avatar: The Dropping Price


Are you looking for a gift for someone about whom you know nothing except
  1. The person is a child, and
  2. He or she owns a Nintendo DS?
Also, are you not going to see this person until several days after Christmas? Then Amazon can help you out with a gift idea. They've got THQ's Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Burning Earth, based on that one cartoon we saw one time when we were browsing our parents' awesome satellite channel lineup, for $14.99, a savings of 50%. It got middling reviews, but things always look better when they're cheaper. Those reviews do indicate that Avatar's a pretty good action game while it lasts. Joys be thine, maybe, after 8-10 shipping days!

Yoshi's Island for a Baby Mario-sized price


Artoon is in the news right now for the Mistwalker-assisting work of founder (and Sonic the Hedgehog character designer) Naoto Oshima. But before Oshima was designing blocky, vacant-eyed adventurers, he served as producer on a fairly high-profile Nintendo project: Yoshi's Island DS.

In case you have yet to see how the creator of Blinx: The Time Sweeper handled the sequel to one of the most beloved Mario games ever, Amazon is giving you the chance to check out the game for a painless $15. The critics got a kick out of it, at least. And if you're going to buy one game about taking care of babies, it may as well be this one and not ... one of the others. But be quick about it: this deal expires at the end of the day.
