Wow, there’s no a whole lot of love in this list is there unless I am missing something? Plenty of companionship to go around with co-op platformers lke Rayman Legends, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.

Then there are quite a few questionable choices. Dead or Alive? I think someone choosing these games is confused about the idea of “love” and more interested in the ideas of “attraction,” “infatuation,” and “jiggle physics.” As for other fighting games, are we taking clever jabs at stereotyping marriage?

Not that it is a terrible sale though. Let’s see, I might nab up Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Triple Strike at those ridiculous prices. Nothing says love like “cheap Street Fighter games.” I’ve also always wanted a little Katamari Damacy for on the go, so I might nab up Me & My Katamari. Quite a loving title at least.

Closing out the sale, it might be time to check out both Mercenary Kings and TowerFall Ascension. Both are indie games I’ve been meaning to check out for a while, and both are co-op games! Too bad the wife isn’t into video games so much, or I might have a better excuse to drop a few dollars this weekend.

Watch catching your eye this weekend?
