Not much talk about LA Noire - I haven't played the PC version, only PS3, so I have no opinion on how it runs, etc. However, I'll say that second half of the game is a lot better than the first. There is a case in particular which almost seems out of place, and has a lot of action elements that don't really exist elsewhere. That's the case that got me back into the game to finish it out - and somehow, someway, the last 2 desks you work totally make sense at the end. IMO it's worth playing, but not as a completionist - finding all the crap scattered around doesn't get you anything.

The interrogations/interviews drove be absolutely crazy because they didn't seem to follow common sense logic or the evidence. I got so mad. Finished the game and got the DLC but I didn't have the patience/will to finish the DLC.

You can buy the OST in FLAC for half a buck (or more if you wish) over here.

Thanks, but the point was that I now have two copies of the soundtrack. ;)

For others, though, the music is pretty good. Certainly worth the 50 cents plus.

Burnout Paradise is decent but it did not wow me. I'm not that big a racing fan though.

Orcs Must Die was 45 minutes of great fun that quickly became such tedium as to turn me off fast.

Could not possibly give a harder thumbs down to LA Noire.

Might have been mentioned but I'll throw out the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter -- at $15 you will get a both a DRM free version and a Steam key (at higher tiers of donation you'll get beta access and other goodies). Of course, it'll be another 18 months or so before the game is actually released but they are well on their way to the $900k goal (nearly $400k in just half a day or so). Note: It's an old school turn-based cRPG so probably won't be everyone's cup of tea. That said, it's worth clicking the link just to watch the video.

I'll go full hypocrite on this. Wasn't big on Doublefine but, inXile? I'll drop $15 easily.

EDIT: Well, I'd like to see a mockup, just one picture of what the game is going to look like...

Yeah, $8 is a bit higher than I was willing to pay. The preorders are 20% off, so when it launches it should be back up to $10. Not sure if I should bite, I already have a couple games in it that I obtained from other bundles. $10 was the price I was expecting it to be when it launches though.

Yeah I feel so cheap, but I'm in the right place for it and past bundles have conditioned me to expect 5.00$.....I blame indie bundle game society! :lol:

On another note I will probably bite after looking at the games....wonder how long the preorder will last?

Here are the FaceKick games with Metacritic scores where applicable:

Avencast: Rise of the Mage - 68
Sol Survivor - 75
Still Life 2 - 67
Post Apocalyptic Mayhem - 44
Dead Horde - 45
Runespell: Overture - 69
Greed: Black Border
Booster Trooper

The last two don't have Metacritic scores.
PAM was previously in the BeMine bundle and Runespell was in an IndieRoyale bundle.

Overall, not sure if want.

Hmmmm, the only game I don't have that I am interested in the Facekick is Dead Horde and it's not worth the $8 bucks by itself. Still life 2 I would be interested in too, but that would be $4 bucks a game and I feel both can be found cheaper on steam at some point. I'll be passing for the time being.

Yeah, the problem is most of those routinely hit $2.50 during the major Steam sales and Sol Survivor and Dead Horde are the only two I'd want -- but I've heard there is no saving in Dead Horde so you have to finish it all in one go.

If the games have individual Steam keys then I'm considering selling the games I don't want for $1 each. Seems like a good idea.

Preordered the IFK bundle. Only one I have already is Runespell, which is actually a pretty good game. Sort of Puzzle Quest meets poker. $1 per game works great for me when I might get surprised and enjoy a game I wouldn't have tried otherwise. Throw a bigger game with some polish in there to headline in Sol Survivor and you got a stew goin' baby!

I guess they are going with a static pricing model? Or maybe they have yet to announce how the price will fluctuate post-launch. I also thought I heard somewhere that they were going to have two tiers, one that came with 2-3 more games. I could just be misremembering that though.

I'm sure it's been argued to death already, but there's something weird about pre-ordering a bundle for games that are already release - long released, in some cases. That seems illogical.

Back to LA Noire, yeah, the interview sections could get frustrating because sometimes the evidence used for "lie" makes zero sense in terms of what you are proving, but overall I enjoyed it all the same. The partners you get are kind of awesome, even the dick.

It's a shame that GATT is so shady, the bundle seems legit though. Sucks that the publishers chose GATT to host their bundle, probably would've been better off with someone else. It might affect sales a bit.

Just damn. Not going to bother with this bundle. First of all $8-10 for a bundle of games I don't know anything about is not really that tempting to me. I mean at least with indie gala I get some good music along with my games, humble gives you top tier quality, and Indie Royale is $4 for 4 games which is much easier for me to stomach (especially since Indie Royale does get decent stuff).

The bundle is legit as the publishers have confirmed that they are allowing GATT to host the bundle. Not going to get it as I own most of the games.

Yeah I know, which is why I said it probably would've been better if they chose someone else to host it. The bad publicity is probably enough to lose some sales, I doubt it'll become widespread though.

It's a surprisingly good game for what it is. For those who don't already have it, I'd go for it. If you are concerned about getting those keys just grab it on a winter/summer sale as it usually goes really cheap then.
