It's no suprise that we love toys at Gizmodo, especially Nerf guns. Shooting a friend with soft foam is an absolute pleasure. When you think Nerf, you're thinking dinky foam darts, but the Vortex line combines the classic Nerf gun with miniature discs, which fly a lot farther and and quite a bit faster. In fact, the Vortex Pyragon can shoot discs 60 to 70 feet—opening up a whole new world of Nerf sniping. Right now at Amazon, the Nerf Vortex is $26. That's a 25% discount and at that price, you should buy two and give one to a friend. You'll never have so much fun getting blasted in the face. [Amazon]

How are you liking the new Kinja digs? One of the coolest aspects of the new platform is that anybody—yes, even you—can have their own blog, and so to kick it off we went out and got one of the best deal hunters on the internet—Mr. Corey Foster—and to start deals.kinja.com. He's killing it over there with a steady stream of genuine, sincere deals. It's not Dealzmodo, but there are hella bargains over there. Check it out. [Deals Kinja]
Last week we posted a deal for a new Baratza grinder that sold out before the post went up. Sorry about that! But a lot of you guys noted that Baratza restocks their refurb store with a bunch of bargains on Tuesday. That's true, but it's not every week—sometimes there's a lot, sometimes not so much. Today's restock was a big one. They've got Encores, Baratzas, and even a scale for cheap, if you're okay with refurbs. [Baratza]
Not today, sorry.
• Pre-order Shadowrun Returns [Steam] ($18) | Steam | Normally $20 | Deluxe Edition pre-order also on sale.
A note on Dealzmodo: We're professional shoppers. We wade through the entire virtual mall to figure out what's actually a bargain. Yes, we make money if you end up buying. That's capitalism, but we're absolutely looking out for your best interest. Read this if you want to know more.
