Aksys Games Has a Japan Benefit Sale

edited March 2011 in Latest Updates
The events in Japan over the last week have been truly horrible. Aksys Games is doing what they can to help, by donating 100% of their profits from this sale to the relief effort.

UPDATE: Aksys Games has tweeted that all profits from their online store will be donated to the Japan relief effort, not just those items on sale.

    But it's for a good cause! If you want to help Japan, you will buy the boobie mousepad.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    :(

    I can never seem to find any of their releases in this back water town of Winnipeg.

    Could be worse. I lived for years in Brandon.

    (Buy from Amazon. You'll be happier for it. The EBs in Winnipeg are so terribad!)

    Amazon.ca or .com? The Canadian one doesn't seem to know about some of Aksys' releases (such as their DS Kunio localizations), and I can't seem to figure out how to get the US one to ship to Canada, though to be honest I haven't put that much effort into it.

    I'm not sure Winnipeg is better than Brandon. It's really... really really really dirty.

    I live in Vancouver. It's practically in Washington. I should be able to take advantage of this sale. By sale I mean relief effort.

    Razzin' frazzin'....they totally got me. I was trying to come up with a charity anyway. That's how I'll justify it.

    Not sure what to do with that boob mousepad though. Pretty sure I can't take it to work.

    I would have countered with my having been unemployed for 7 of the last 12 months, then I got a new job offer within hours. So the odds of my succumbing are now high.

    Yeah, Amazon.ca is fale. I think they order like 3 of any title that isn't AAA. Luckily, you can now order on-line from Gamestop at Gamestop.ca, or, if your title isn't super-niche, you can order from Futureshop.ca for (currently) about $5-$10 less than Gamestop/EB charges for games.

    Sure you can. If anyone has a problem with it, tell them to stop making waves.

    No, boobie mousepads are really not suitable for the workplace, unless the workplace is "Aksys Games While Developing Agarest War."
