As well, EA Mobile has dropped Mass Effect: Infiltrator pricing for the iOS by 80% (again) for Valentine's Day, but as usual, there's no love for Android owners. Discount deets after the break.

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost…Sale? (until 2/28)

FUNimation has the Blu-Ray/DVD combo bundle for the anime movie Mass Effect: Paragon Lost in its February Sale at Amazon listings for $18, which is an all time low price for the title. However, according to CamelCamelCamel, the stable price has been about $20 since September 2012, so you can probably imagine my confusion about whether or not this implies that the price will jump back up to list value (unlikely), or jump up at all (a possibility), at the end of the month.
