Steam is having a big anime sale weekend

We live in a glorious age. An age of wonders, where reading a comic book isn’t an automatic excuse to be punched in the face. Unless said person is reading that third volume of Ultimates that came out a few years ago. But we’re not condoning such violence here. Nope. Just uh, merely hinting at it. ANYWAY, anime is a good part of the nerd equation these days. It used to be a fringe movement, reserved locally for anyone rich enough to afford the DSTV package that included the Sci-Fi channel and its weekend marathons of popular Japanese animation.

Hell, even some DVD rental shops got in on the act. I still worked the counter at one, and I’ll never forget that one day I failed to convince a mom that Urotsukidoji really, really wasn’t a kids film. Good times. Anyway, we’ve come full circle now, and anime is even bigger in an interactive form. Games based on anime sales have a dedicated following, provided that you have the bucks to acquire them.

And if you’re feeling like flashing some of that payday cash on a world of humanoids with big eyes and trendy haircuts, Steam has a sale on this weekend for the interactive Japanese art form. Here’s a look at just a few of the titles on sale, with hundreds more available:

  • Tales of Zestiria
  • Dragon Ball XenoVerse
  • RWBY: Grimm Eclipse
  • One Piece Pirate Warriors 3
  • Blazblue: Chronophantasma Extended
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
  • Tales of Symphonia
  • Mega Man Legacy Collection
  • Saint Seiya: Soldiers’ Soul
  • Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN
  • The King of Fighters XIII
  • Transformers: Devastation
  • Breath of Death VII
  • Cthulhu Saves the World

You can see a full list of the anime deals here, provided that you don’t refer to yourself as anything “Chan” because that will trigger me to beat the fandom out of you. Unless you’re Jackie Chan, because then I’m in massive trouble. The sale is live, and runs until May 2 10 AM PT. BELIEVE IT.

    I had a look at the sale page last night & the first thing I noticed was… how you can’t actually read the names of most of the games. Combination of those silly little tiles and paragraph-long game titles.

    Oh, I nearly forgot – and they all look like kak. *run*

          Nope. One of the Bazblues, one of the Guilty Gears, KOF XIII and… something else that I forget, again. Last night I was like “I own that? What is it?”

            I expect this is what other players look like if I don’t revive them after the 15th death.

          • Admiral Chief in New York

            April 29, 2016 at 12:18

            LOL, I’m sorry, but if you constantly go down after one or two hits, YOU STAY DOWN.

            At least it counts towards my revive achievement, how far is yours?

          • Ottokie

            April 29, 2016 at 12:19

            I probably already have it 😛

            It’s mesmerising, isn’t it? I like that she’s tuckered out after a few seconds of arm flapping.

          • Ottokie

            April 29, 2016 at 12:21

            That’s most likely due to loss of oxygen and blood flow.

          • Ottokie

            April 29, 2016 at 12:25

            She was probably at a Dukan diet conference

          • Admiral Chief in New York

            April 29, 2016 at 12:26

            WTF is Dukan?

          • Ottokie

            April 29, 2016 at 12:29

            Every year there is some strange diet revolution named after some “genius dietitian”

            AKA Dukan, Atkins. Banting or gluten free.

            All just full of **** like the previous one.

          • Admiral Chief in New York

            April 29, 2016 at 12:30

            Oh, another fad.

            I’m on a ligte dieet. As die ligte aangaan, dan eet ek

          • Ottokie

            April 29, 2016 at 12:31

            And if there is load shedding, a braai counts as a light.
