Technically, it was "offensive" (or at least bad form) to the people who bought the bundle at $8 to end up selling at $1 for the same bundle.

Yeah, I could agree about that part. Not in the sense that it was completely unacceptable, but I'm one of the people who bought Jade Empire the day before it randomly went on sale lower, so I'm no stranger to that annoying feeling.

I did that too. -.-

C'mon though guys, listen to this stuff. How can you not buy this for $1?

Experimenting with alternative power sources, the biophysicist Henry Alfred Cole found a way to extract the soul from a human body and use the soul as a power source. The soulless bodies however turned into zombies. Hellish creatures started filling them to change dramatically the essence of the host body. A daemon from a parallel world, Baphomet, installed himself in one soulless body and soon founded the cult of Lucifer. The aim of this cult was to open the gate for Lucifer to come into the humans? world. The number of followers of the cult increased at a catastrophic rate; Satanists all around the world were joining their ranks. The main hero is concerned with the fate of his missing friend, who had had a meeting with the leader of a satanic sect just a day before his disappearance. His persistent investigations become a threat to the Satan worshippers and Satanists start hunting after him. The creepy truth about the fate of his friend will reveal itself in the mansion of the biophysicist...

I can't bring myself to buy IFK for a dollar because most of the games are generic FPS games, the other, hard truck apacolypse, is probably going to be in the upcoming strat first bundle from amazon. I really feel sorry for anyone that spent 8 bucks on it.

I personally am not a big fan of desura. Yeah it keeps some games in order, but personally, I dl all my drm free games and keep them in their own folder. 3tb hdds are only 150 bucks these days, I only have a tb and that is plenty for now but I plan to get another tb for about 60 the next time I find a decent one for that price. Still have about 300 gb on mine and have about 125 games, 60 movies, and 5000 songs, not including all my porn ;). Steam is great because that is where most of my games are and I can easily delete a game if I need more space and know exactly where it is later. Either way, we shouldn't be complaining about drm unless it has activation limits. We all know IFK sucks and any other bundle is better. As I said before, this bundle ain't even worth a dollar.

On the other hand, this HIB was great. I literally looked at it, remembered spaz and torchlight, so I BTA for those two games alone. I had none previously. Very happy with my purchase. Paid 5.05. Still waiting on both The groupees bundles. The bob to see if they add more games again, and will probably only drop a buck on the ww bundle but I'd like to see how many other people are also waiting to buy them.

I don't think anyone is selling the exact same bundle that Indie Face Kick is, and even if they were, IFK wouldn't be claiming that their offer of less options was better unless they actually addressed the opposition. What they are claiming is that not requiring steam is better than requiring steam, which is what some people think.


The absence of exerting effort (and possibly money?) to obtain keys is not necessarily the same thing as denying them. But apparently, for whatever the reason may be, their target audience doesn't care about steam keys. Do you get upset every time someone markets something that doesn't appeal to you? (that was a rhetorical question)


Their target audience does care about Steam, as we all tried to tell them after the first bundle -- hell, they do a lot of their advertising through their Steam group -- and the guy in charge was excited about how their next bundle was going to be completely DRM-free. A handful of us told him that most of his sales were coming from people who wanted the Steam option, but he either didn't care or was unable to secure Steam keys (probably both).

... this bundle ain't even worth a dollar.

Well, if it didn't have Hard Truck Apocalypse in it, I would have passed on it too. That said, the Strategy First bundle looks like a lot of garbage for $12... I honestly was likely going to buy it just for Hard Truck Apocalypse and one or two other games. The 1C bundle, on the other hand, looks awesome.

I probably would have grabbed HTA for $3 by itself though, so I may not hold the popular opinion here, lol. If you're an old fan of Twisted Metal, Vigilante 8, and other car combat games, and an RPG nut too, HTA is a fun game if you overlook the massive flaws and learn to laugh at the horrible translation. Definitely worth $1.

(Be sure to copy and paste your own music into the game's music folders too. It makes it really easy for you to sub in your own badass soundtrack. Five Finger Death Punch and ESTK? Yes please.)

I literally looked at it, remembered spaz and torchlight, so I BTA for those two games alone.

I'd imagine it's too late now, but you do realize that beating the average only gets you Dustforce, right? Otherwise you can get just the 4 other games for $1 (or a penny if you don't want Steam keys).

For me, what it comes down to is that the IFK folks pepper everything they do with heaping helpings of attitude, and it makes it easy to feel satisfied when the result is that they don't move product.

Next they'll be promoting the awesome fact that their bundle doesn't provide soundtracks.

It's not that I want them to do poorly. If this bundle had started at a dollar, we wouldn't be having this conversation. They just don't seem to have a grasp on what consumers value in a bundle, and their pre-discount numbers prove that.

That's funny that they have a steam group. Then, the target audience that I referred to in that post is the one based on the advertising shown on their website.

Glad I held off on buying those some of those indies because I got this HiB and alls I had before was Torchlight (from a trade with utopian) and Shatter. Good call on Rochard the other day, sunghost; I would've bit at the Daily Deal price if not for your impeccable induction.

edit: the key for Dustforce shows up in your account history as "Humble Indie Bundle 6 Beat the Average". I wonder if that implies more games to be added to it. It does mean one day in the future I'm gonna forget where the hell I got Dustforce from and searching that page won't help.

The new menu system is awful. Looking through my loot is frustrating and I much prefer the list system from first game. That said, the game is still awesome and the firefights seem much more intense.

Completely off topic, but watching the Shuttle Endeavour fly low over my house was a breathtaking sight.


A bit more on topic, playing through some of my backlog before Torchlight 2, I discovered I had Return to Castle Wolfenstein. It simultaneously infuriates me and brings a smile to my face. The supernatural enemies are bullet sponges who hit like hard trucks and that stealth level I was in a position where if I did nothing or moved anywhere I would get spotted, but when it opens up and lets you do some old school fast paced run/gun it's so brilliant.

And even more on topic, the Borderlands 2 options menu looks divine.

Oh, I think they look great and, other than loot, work perfectly fine. In the first game I could see all my loot at a quick glance and easily see rarity. Now, I can only see few at a time with rarity being indicated by a slight color fade at the top of the weapon pic. Scrolling through 12 weapons is annoying, let alone 42. They should have at least made the background of the weapon pic the rarity color. Minor quibbles though as I'm loving the game.

I am hoping some loving chap makes a mod to fix that menu system. It's my only complaint to this game so far.

Was hoping it'd be Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, but I checked the source and it's The Wasted Land which was in one of the Indie Gala Android bundles (but without the PC version, I think).

Still a good bundle, glad I held off on Broken Sword, and I'll be able to complete my Alien Breed collection.
