Should you aren’t within the loop in the case of web3 tarnished, tech-brand anime, it’s best to in all probability save your self and shut this tab now. XPG simply dug its NFT gap a bit deeper at CES 2023 with a full PC setup primarily based round its personal horrible anime’s most important character.
Some time again, the Adata subsidiary model got here out with Xtreme Saga. It is a story of a powerful feminine protagonist kicking butt and preaching about hope, justice, management, and empathy. Whereas that will sound epic, sadly the idea was by no means achieved justice.
That is not simply as the corporate does not appear to be conscious that anime is brief for “animation,” one thing that does not appear to have translated from the janky slideshow that’s Xtreme Saga (see video beneath). What’s worse is that the show is a guise for XPG’s web3 antics.
Its objective? To shill NFTs, in fact.
And even because the XPG Xtreme Saga Fan Membership’s Ether worth sits at simply $8,760, with solely 581 holding, the corporate nonetheless determined to go forward and produce out a full PC setup together with peripherals, mousepad, and even a PC case designed round its most important character, Mera.
This is what XPG confirmed off at CES 2023:
- Valor Air chassis
- Precog S headset
- Slingshot gaming mouse
- Mage gaming keyboard
- Battleground L mousepad
A few of the options listed embody a “flashy design,” “optimum dimensions,” and “pink mechanical” key switches. The designs are additionally plastered with the identical signature orangey pink as Mera’s hair. Firey.
I’m so sorry to the artists that bought dragged into this farce—I hope you had been paid nicely as a result of having to observe the primary episode of Xtreme Saga very almost made me flip in my weeb badge.
It’d as nicely have been a Manga, actually.
However sufficient in regards to the horrible anime frontage. The true stickler is that the gear is not newly designed in any respect, aside from the mousepad it is simply form of… outdated stuff colored pink. I don’t know learn how to signal this off. I am too busy washing my eyes out with cleaning soap.
