Has there been a giveaway somewhere for the game Dynamite Jack?

I'm starting to see it pop up a bit on steamgifts and I'm seeing it being offered by people on various trade forums. It's not a tidal wave of keys like you'd see if it were a Reddit code drop or from the summer seal thing. But previous to a few days ago, I had almost never seen it offered anywhere. Now it seems to be showing up a lot more frequently.

From the Steam thread I remembered that I had picked up AOEIII and Viva Pinata from GFWL. I have since bought a new computer and now understand all the GFWL hate. I had to download several times with the download getting to the very end and then saying it was corrupt. I also had multiple issues with logging in. Viva Pinata is surprisingly enjoyable though.

Here's one simulator right up your alley, High School Dreams ($1.23 @ GMG)

You’re the new girl in town and it seems that everywhere you look there are boys! Sporty boys, funny boys, talented boys, good looking boys, intense boys, nerdy boys…

Pluck up the courage to talk to them and get to know them, see if they have the same interests as you, dress up to look your best, get invited out on dates, talk to your friends at school and spill all the juicy gossip, learn who’s in and who’s out.

Is it just a bit of fun or could it really be true love?

Create and dress your own unique character.
Explore key locations including the high school, shopping mall and park.
Date a variety of unique boys, from the popular Jock to the Chic Geek.
Go shopping at the mall; purchase new clothes and make-up.
Play a variety of fun mini games including Dancing, Mini-golf and Ice Skating.


Why am I convinced this is totally worth it? ...well at least I can buy this with less shame/self-questioning than the male-CAG populace.

Edit: Bought!

I, like a few others, don't recall Shadowrun offered for 10 cents. I could easily be mistaken, since the GFWL Marketplace is quite the distant memory.

Oh well, we'll always have the fascinating SNES version; The soundtrack for that game had a very distinct "Secret of Mana feel" to it.


Dude, see what I mean?

I'll take it. Even with my GFWL troubles I'd enjoy having VP.

Today's deal is the Double Fine Bundle at 50% off ($14.99)

It includes Psychonauts, Costume Quest, and Stacking. Individual games are not on sale. The package has been cheaper and the next time it's on sale will probably include Iron Brigade.

I saw that a while back but before it was on sale. Apparently, it's a Greenman Gaming exclusive.

At that price I will probably grab it, sure bought, thanks for the heads up.

*Edit: Also, it apparently reviewed pretty well from the GMG user reviews.

Dang, not a horribly good Daily Deal. At least I grabbed Costume Quest during the Summer Sale for $3.74 - I'm looking forward to starting that one [around October].

You know, I could be wrong about Iron Brigade being included next time as it's a different publisher. Still, this bundle has been half that price before. I love the games, but now's not the time to buy if you've been waiting.

I saw a thread on sg a couple days ago saying how the iOS version was on sale, and through that you could get a steam key. In the thread there was a little talk of it being exploitable (sorry, didn't care enough to check validity of those statements), so I've been avoiding them, just in case. The game's cheap enough as it is that if I really wanted it I'd buy it during the next sale.

All the Double Fine Games are very good. That price however, is not.

I've been trying to unload costume quest by itself for $3 forever without much luck.

Let me know how much you enjoy it, it attualy does sound kind of fun. There isn't really to many date/life sims on the PC that are good quality. plus have a 1.50 credit on GmG

Also if you haven't check out Magical Diary on Steam I loved that game and will soon give it another play though. Basic run down of Magical Diary is imagine a Harry Potter type world with a life/date sim with many different storylines and things you can do but only so much time to alot during each play through kind of like Persona. So each play-though you end up finding out a new story and path that you can go down, finding out things about characters you didn't know before through previous play-through.

People tend to think of me as an otaku, or a weaboo (which isn't true, by the way) because I think Asian women are attractive and subsequently spend lots of time with them.


This isn't directed at you, just an aside about the Asian fantasy thing. In my mind it seems kind of creepy when a guy fetishes a woman just because of her race or primary status, like say because she is deaf or because she is white or blonde or anything. Attraction is a big part of finding a partner but just personally I would never want to be with someone who basically fetishes me as a person just because of one aspect.

Maybe this is just the more common thing men talk about, so it is more obvious and every man fetishizes about their own niche of women, but it has always just creeped me out when thinking about someone being with me only because they get off about one aspect of who I am.

Maybe I'm missing something but Iron Brigade doesn't look like a tower defense game at all -- looks more like an action shooter.

It is Tower Defense. The closest it comes to any other TD games is Sanctum, but it's still pretty different. The focus on action is greater than any other game like that that I've seen and it's doesn't have the same rigid grid setup that many have. There's no blocking off sections to create paths or direct lines that the enemies have to follow. It's more similar to your typical TD game than Portal is to Battlefield, but not much. Iron Brigade is probably closer to playing the Engineer in Team Fortress than it is to Fieldrunners.

Meh @ the daily deal today. I already have 2 out of 3 games, though, so I probably wouldn't have bought anyway, ha. I've been hoping to start Stacking soon, but it depends on how busy I get with moving this week, etc.

I have to agree with your feelings on this. I'm deaf myself (as well as a woman) so I have gotten my fair share of creeps who are only into me because I'm deaf and they think they can be the "white knight in shining armor" for a "helpless" damsel such as me. Blech.

How about easy order management and the ability to cancel preorders through the site etc. Or the ability to adjust font sizes without going to INI files. I love steam but its interface still feels like the same steam I used back in 2003. My bucket list:

1. adjustable font sizes
2. offline messages/message history caching
3. group voice chat
4. order managment
5. better game sorting/categories/able to group multiples at once
6. ability to select multiple games at once for download/delete or to change settings to auto update, etc
7. stop the freeze every computer I have does when I redeem a key or purchase something on the store
8. let me work in the background while doing actions like verifying cache
9. easier implementation of themes (maybe use steam workshop)
10. bandwidth management options and totals for the day/week/month
11. More update options (update weekly, daily, hourly, monthly, etc)
12. Integrated steam support system.
13. standardized game invites


There are more but I'm sure instead of any of those we will get a more efficient way to trade or show off tf2 hats or to post on facebook when we buy things.

As others have stated, I would LOVE a more efficient way of managing my games. I hate having to click each game one by one to set categories, and I'd love to be able to give games multiple tags (I have a "Completed" category, but sometimes I want to keep a game in another category (such as "Co-op") because even though I beat the single player, I want to play it with others... Portal 2 is one such case.
