#11921235 Humble Megathread - Humble 2K Bundle - Gamepedia Weekly - SciFi eBooks - DRM-...

Posted by MysterD on Today, 01:49 AM

Unless it has Final Fantasy or Tomb Raider games, I want nothing to do with a Square Enix bundle. I'd prefer HIB. Or even a recap of the greatest indies over the years that new comers to the game have missed. Braid, Fez, Splunky, Super Meat Boy, etc.

I know most of the regs would hate that, but it would give the chance to play some of the best indies that new comers missed out on the bundles.

Squeenix / Eidos Humble Bundle:

 

1st Tier - $1 or more for Steam keys:

Deus Ex: The Fall

Conflict: Denied Ops

 

2nd Tier - spend $10 or more: 

The Last Remnant

TR 2013

Hitman Absolution

 

3rd Tier - spend $25 or more:

Final Fantasy 7

FF8

A desktop.

I would've recommended a rocket-ship for GTA5 PC, given Rockstar's (often poor) PC port history (on their release day). ;)

Invisible War isn't as bad as certain people make it sound (mostly fans of the original). If you enjoy the first one, it's worth picking up dirt cheap from GOG or Steam, just to see where you find yourself on the "love it" or "hate it" spectrum, though going in with lowered expectations will probably help.

My biggest complaint w/ DE: IW was the unified ammo (which each weapon drains different amounts of energy in IW, as opposed to different weapons have different ammo like DE Original + DE HR had); the console-like menus; and the horrible performance on systems back when it was released (that's not a problem, nowadays w/ modern systems).

It's not everyone's taste of humor, but I enjoyed the crass immature humor immensely. And Handsome Jack and Tiny Tina of course are fun. 

Same here. I preferred BL2 base-game's story-telling + humor over the original. I thought it was a major improvement. Hell, as much as I loved BL1 (for being so fresh + so new at that time, mixing FPS gameplay mechanics w/ loot-crazy ARPG elements - it certainly did that A LOT better than Hellgate: London), I prefer everything about BL2 over BL1.

 

And I agree - for me, I loved Handsome Jack (what a great villain) + the always hilarious Tiny Tina.

I've just recently started up Torchlight 2 and have found myself enjoying the looting quite a bit. I don't know that I agree about the graphics/art style being "generic". The real problem, in my opinion, is the writing -- that is completely generic.

 

The art, on the other hand, is quite attractive. The enemies and bosses are pretty fun to look at, and the backgrounds are techincally exceptional. Having said that, I don't know that the locales really break much ground, but really, how varied can swamps, deserts, and haunted bogs really be when it all comes down to it?

I agree w/ this.

 

I actually like the cartoony looking steampunk-ish + fantasy look mixed together.

 

But - it's the writing, prose, and character depth in Torchlight 2 that is nothing special. But, was that ever going to be special? No, not really.

 

Gamers playing Torchlight 2 should be there for the cool art-design; non-stop action; non-stop flow of loot; + constant upgrading flow (upgrading loot + skills; and leveling-up). Since a lot of this feels mechanically A LOT similar to Diablo 2 in particular - this is as addictive as can be.

 

If gamers want story + character in an ARPG - they should be playing something else...like say Divine Divinity. 

While the story + writing is really good in DD - unfortunately DD's has voice-acting that's all over-the-place, ranging from horrible to decent. They should've went the Shadowrun Returns route in DD - if they ain't gonna have + pay f or having decent voice-acting, just voice-act NOTHING.

Not Steam, but some might be interested:
 
(Gamestop) Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Collector's Edition - $79.99 $49.99

Did anyone #SomewhatFakeCAG this during this sale or #FakeCAG this D3:RoS Collector's Ed?

 

If "yes" - how's all the extra stuff?

 

I saw the unboxing of this on this IGN - this CE looks very nice.

 

Also, if you want it shipped - looks like JULYSAVINGS knocks $5 off.

Though, probably would have to pay for shipping - if you had it shipped.

 

And no clue if you could say have it set for pick-up at your local GameStop + also then use JULYSAVINGS to knock $5 off, if possible (or not).

I trust GabeN more than Uncle Sam.

 

{Which means I really don't trust either, but I'm too lazy to give a Fuck.}

Would you trust Commander Shepard?

Why does this look like Gaben 20 years ago or so is holding me?

So glad he didn't drop me - look at what he's turned Valve and PC gaming into! :D

If you somehow don't have Stacking, the $1-tier is worth it for that alone.

 

Though don't be too sad when it's rebundled again a million times with other Double Fine games.

When's that Double Fine Humble Bundle with Grim Fandango Remastered coming...? ;)

Lol the page containing this post is/was one of the most humorous I've read in a long time. Talk about a warm hug indeed!

 

Life is good, I'm actually in the process of firing up the "how do we do the community thing?" conversation in my new role. I don't see a ton of relevant overlap though as all the stuff I'm working on is App focused now.

 

I just had a killer 4th of July wedding with one of my best friends, he, his wife and I all met swing dancing 5 years ago (and they were much better at it than I was) and they did this killer dance routine at the end of their first dance. PLUS it was on an overlook so we got to see fireworks during the ceremony.

 

I also just finished The Wolf Among Us and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, both solid games that I can't recommend enough.

 

What's the CAG word on Destiny? Hype or New Hope? I think I'm going to try and jump in at launch.

Cheers,
Tony

Glad to hear everything's going well for you, bro. :D

Everything's fine here, as well.

 

About Destiny - looks great, but I am waiting 1st for a PC version. And hopefully if it comes here...waiting for a good deal on it, eventually - as you probably could've expected. ;)

Now you've done it.

 

You guys just cast "summon MysterD".

Do I look like one of those long-winded summon cinematics/cut-scenes in those Final Fantasy games?
