Costco offers savings on DS games

Today's cheap deals post is brought to you buy the letter "o," and, uh, the word "costc." Get it? Costco?

Now that we've sufficiently subjected you to the horrors of our evening humor (or lack thereof), those of you who are Costco shoppers might be interested in some of the games the retailer is offering for $10.99 thru 6/22:
  • Puzzle Quest
  • Sonic Rush
  • Dragon Quest: Rocket Slime
  • The New York Times Crosswords
  • Disney Meteos
  • Namco Museum DS
  • Cooking Mama
This sale is somewhat "your mileage may vary," since the listed games are not necessarily going to be in stock at your local Costco. These are just some games that we've decided to highlight, though. Check after the break for the full list, as compiled by CAGgers.

Five games to buy for people you hate

Gaming sites are inundated with holiday gift guides at the end of the year, listing the best and most popular games that everyone pretty much already has (or knows about). Well, we're not going in for that this year. Our gift guide will help you find the best gifts in categories the other sites won't cover -- because we just made them up.

Do you just love handing out the most horrific holiday gifts? If you're the kind of person who actually tucks sticks and coal into the stocking of a loved one on Christmas Eve, then this list is for you. It's all about the worst of the worst, the bottom of the barrel -- the games you would shudder to find on your own shelf, or worse, tainting your DS.

Before you ask -- yes, we do love to see you cringe and suffer at the horrors we spring on you. Aren't we sweet?

Adopt Petz Catz 2 for ten bucks

Sure, it's third-party pet-sim shovelware, but if you're looking for a cheap Christmas gift to throw at the preteen brats in your family, look no further! For today only, Amazon has Petz Catz 2 on sale at a discount price of $9.99. Slap another $15+ item onto your order, like a copy of Final Fantasy 3 for yourself, and you can even take advantage of the online shop's Free Super Save Shipping.

Ubisoft actually put together some adorable commercials for Catz 2 and other games in the Petz series. Nom nom nom past the post break for those short videos.

The truth about Catz and Dogz, as told by EBGames commenters

The issue of which pet-care game is the best is much too divisive to solve here. Even splitting them up into categories: horse, cat, hamster, etc. (as well as the non-pet care games involving human babies) is just much too controversial for us to make our own call.

GamesRadar's staff, hoping to put this issue to rest, turned to the EBGames user comments for each game to determine which was the best. Using this resource, they were able to get expert reviews, like this one for Nintendogs: "this is wat i said to my mom when it came out! " o.m.g i really need to get this game." she said ok."

To be fair, a lot of the commenters, especially for these games, are children, and probably don't need to be made fun of. But some of the comments run a little psychotic: "I had my nintendo ds for a while now and i have been ready for this moment," a commenter said about Imagine Babyz. What rituals must one go through to prepare for Imagine Babyz?

More Petz for your DS

Remember when we said that everybody wants a piece of the virtual pets pie? We weren't lying and now Ubisoft plans to extend their Petz franchise.

Not only will you have cuddly Catz and Dogz, you will now have Horsez and, get this, Hamsterz Life. I guess Barbie's Horse Adventures isn't enough anymore.

Want more? Released this September is Dogz Fashion for GBA. This, obviously, concentrates the most on prizes. Now you have to give your animals baths and such.

Best thing about this new line of Petz, in our opinion, are the hamsters. They always did smell a little funny and now you don't have to, um, smell them.
