Half Minute Hero is an excellent game, but I don't think it's worth $8. I had fun for about 4 hours from it (I beat all of the modes, but only Hero 30, Hero 300 and Hero 3 are really any fun). I'd say it's a good buy at $5 :)

Really? I'm not saying it's impossible, but I didn't really think HMH was "indie"... it had a full retail release for PSP years ago and was then available as a digital download for PSN later, I think. It'd be great to snag it in an indie bundle though!

I think it looks more indie than it is.

Did you click the check your reward button? They glitch like that often, but it should give you the key if you click on the button on the Rewards page. I think they only had 200 of each lol


I have LIMBO on hardcore, went on raptr right on time for the code giveaways, clicked the redeem button: "Sorry, You haven't met all of the requirements yet" WTF

Yeah, that happens to everyone. You have to click the button located here:

http://raptr.com/dashboard/rewards

I should've posted that solution before the giveaway started, but I honestly forgot you had to do that lol. It doesn't work if you click the button the the Stacking/Psychonauts page. Has to be pressed on the dashboard/profile page.

Rome for a buck? Hell, I'll probably never play it, but a buck? That's too easy!


You should, even if it is just a quick "skirmish" battle. I mean everyone deserves to see a large legion of angry screaming Germanic women rushing and overtaking a Roman legion :lol:

Impossible! Shogun: Total War and Medieval: Total War are not on steam.

M:TW is still my favorite. Thank heavens I still have the DVDs because I haven't seen it on sale digitally anywhere; not even on sites like GOG and it's never in the "complete" Total War bundles.

I went to the dashboard rewards page, that's where I got the message from. Seems a bunch of other people were having this error too - it's all over the raptr forums.

Most of the people that posted on the forums didn't use that method, I think there may be a couple of others solutions that have been posted over there too. What I did was click on the button on the Stacking page, and then clicked the button my my rewards dashboard page and it worked for me.

I don't know why it hasn't been fixed yet, these bugs have been very common for a while and they haven't been doing anything about it. All I can say is my solution worked for the PS1 code giveaway (which had the exact same bug, but they had 1,000+ codes to give away) along with Psychonauts/Stacking. Sorry it didn't work for you guys :cry:

It's not on Desura at all. Has Indie Royale ever featured a game that wasn't on Desura? I thought they all were but I can't recall every single game they've had in one of their bundles.

As far as I know they sell all games from bundles, but there have been some that weren't for sale until they were in a bundle.

It seems like you might be able to get a free copy of Postal 2 on Steam/Desura if you Greenlight its release. Anyone who helps to promote it should get a free key, which is just awesome:

"Simple really, if you post about our Greenlight somewhere other than Steam, such as on popular forums you already have an account with* (4-chan, Reddit, PCGAMER, Rock Paper Shotgun, Giant Bomb ect) and post the link here, I'll make sure you are one of the first to get a key for POSTAL 2! Also applies to your personal pages** ( facebook, a blog, youtube ect).

If you post it to multiple places, I'll make sure you also get a free P1 desura key.

As of now, we don't know 100% know if we can give out free Steam keys, if not I'll make sure you get a Desrua Key instead and a link to all the extras we give away on GoG.com. If we can give out Steam keys, the only group currently promised them (due to the difficulty of quickly proving ownership) are the regulars at the RWS Forums, so this is an alternative way to be included in that priority group."

They aren't 100% sure you'll get keys :P

Ugh, got my reply back from Steam. So I got in on a 4 pack preorder of Torchlight 2 months ago. I have the first game as the preorder bonus (because I redeemed my preorder months ago), no second game in my library. I explain this to Steam Support, three days later, they tell me to redeem my game from the inventory.

:wall: seriously, just Fuck.

I absolutely hate crappy CS; that sucks. That's why I love Amazon... The last time I had a problem and the support rep couldn't understand or solve it, she just gave me $10 credit.

Steam could learn a thing or two from them...

Steam support sucks period. I feel bad for you. Maybe try to give them less info or be more to the point.

Luckily this was for Torchlight 2 and not a game that was $50-60. Hopefully they come to their senses, because if I would have wasted $15 on a copy of T1, (which I already owned as a DRM free game), I will be pissed because T1 was $2.50 many times.

Alienware Arena is giving out what appears to be keys for a level of Transcripted. It's an exclusive level, but it seems to be a demo. Not totally sure what to make of it. If you have the game, maybe it works just as a bonus level? Not sure.

Is there any sort of benefit that comes with the Beta, like a cheaper price on the game later? I've never really seen the 'deal' in these betas.

I wouldn't call the game mechanics on Rome dated at all. I would give it a go for $1.

Thanks everyone for the helpful comments. I went ahead and bought it.

This way I can wait until a Shogun 2 complete pack is eventually available and goes on sale. Most likely it'll sit in the void that is my Steam backlog though...

For what it's worth, the Alienware key activates on Steam as "Loadout Retail". I thought this was going to be free-to-play, though.
