For completists only, as the game by itself is on sale for pennies nowadays almost every second week and the soundtrack (good for background music) was available in the bundles elsewhere and can be obtained online.

That is some great packaging, but it'll be hard for me to justify buying this since I already have the game.

Wow, 3 Hour game for $25.

an astute observation

This is the sort of thing they should have done at launch and then waited a while for any sales or bundles. Doing it after the fact seems pretty pointless.

Length =/= quality.


I bought a dvd that had 5 shorts on it, all of them lasted about 10-25 minutes each for $26.99

Those shorts were some of the most beautiful animated pictures I had seen in my life

It cost me about three times as much as a regular dvd, but I received 5x the quality.


Whether it has quality or not, it is still just a 3 hour game. I enjoyed playing it, but I only paid $5 for it. Not only that, but there have been alot of sales on this. It has been as cheap as 15 cents if you bought the Humble Bundle V for $1 (which I did) before they added it as a bonus.

Most PC gamers these days don't WANT boxes and discs any more. Now they're expected to pay a premium for them? Hahaha

That's a pretty interesting package, although it does seem to be coming rather late. Too bad those red/blue style 3D glasses wash out the colors so much though.

Length =/= quality.

Limbo =/= quality.

Though I agree with you that rating length is silly.

Saying I wouldn't pay $25 for a 3 hour game is not the same thing as saying that a 3 hour games isn't (or can't be) any good. I've played some short downloadable games this gen that I loved, but I wouldn't have paid much for them. Limbo wasn't one of them - only one of its three hours is actually good imo. ;)

I agree, the timing does not make sense to me. Nevertheless, it is a nice set.

I'd be tempted to ask what extras are included, but I doubt there's anything substantial. I keep going back to the time I completed the bonus scenario, which is triggered by finding all the eggs.

I may have been spoiled by Braid's star-fetching affair, which at least extended the ending by a whole 4 seconds. In LIMBO, the player is simply sent back to the main area upon the bonus scenario's completion. An "Achievement" was gained, but nothing of any true consequence came from that little trail-and-error-in-the-dark affair.

You made me sad, LIMBO, and not because of your story.

I wouldn't go as far as RollingSkull did but I would hardly call Limbo amazing. Yes, it looks amazing and it starts out amazing (The demo is one of the best I've ever played for a small downloadable game), but to me it quickly misplaced that charm after the game was fully bought.

I don't have any opinion on Limbo as I haven't played it yet, but I've seen many RollingSkull posts and never a positive one. Granted, I haven't seen every RollingSkull post so it's positive he doesn't criticize every game, which is why I'm askin if he likes any game.

Thanks for this. Always good to know that even when i can't find any cheap games i want, this place is still good for a laugh.

Also, this could probably be legit if Angry Birds was published by Capcom. Or EA. Or Ubi. Or Activision...

No problem. :) I just wanted to point out that its not the perfect indie darling that is completely free of misgivings. (Then again... What is? So I guess more to the point I wanted to say its not hard to find fault with it.)

That said, when the price is right, you should give it a shot. Its certainly not perfect but it is something I feel that everyone should at least play.
