KOTOR 2?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Now if only there were a sale price with it... Even for like $7.50 I would snatch this up again. Something about $10 just seems high.

Bought BeMine at the Dollar level. Unlike the Indie Royale album, I listened to the preview of the $5 level music and decided I can live without it. At least until the secret item is revealed.

Never played either Giana Sisters game, the PC one or the DS successor, but I am aware of them. I'll keep an eye on the Kickstarter, but only out of interest in seeing it happen rather than a desire to play it.

I love it when the weekend deals come up on Thursday. Even if they're games I already have, I like being reminded that it's almost the weekend. :D

In for $1

maybe more if the bonuses are any good...but at this point im not shelling out another 4 for the Guns of Icarus beta......


Same here.

Calling level 1 a "goal" is a bit off. More like a requirement or minimum. Hopefully there's new games in the future bonuses and not just music.

For anyone with Paypal Smart Connect: check your e-mails for an offer to add $10 credit to your account.

*Subject to credit approval. Cardholders must make at least 3 purchases with their PayPal Smart Connect Card now through September 6, 2012 that post to the account by September 13, 2012, in order to qualify for a $10 statement credit. Please allow up to 2 billing cycles for your statement credit to post to your PayPal Smart Connect account. Account must remain open, be in good standing and not become delinquent.


I never received a card, so I'm assuming this works with online purchases. I'm also going to assume it will work with 3 separate transactions of the Just Cause 2 DLC for $0.24 each since there is no mention of minimum purchase. Getting $10 credit for 72 cents? I'm willing to try it. That's at least three games during the Australian Summer sale! ;)

I liked it, only played the SP campaign, but I thought it was pretty decent.
If you are a user (like me) who wants to use a gamepad and is used to playing with an inverted y axis - they left that option completely out of the PC version for some asinine reason.
I found a x360ce patch to make it work, but it was pretty irritating to have to jump through hoops to get full gamepad support on what is basically a console port.

Is there a promise in there that George Stobbart dies an awful and horrible death? If so, I might just chip in a lot to see that. :bouncy:


Yeah, George is a big reason why I have no desire to play the other games.

KOTOR 2?!?!?!?!?!?!?

It will be like Jade Empire with no sale for years, then they finally throw us a bone only to screw us after the sale.

Some hints on the upcoming #IG8 ....
- The complete collection of an awesome and award-winning action - RPG
- One of the few games that bring the tactical and strategic warfare of World War 2 to the PC.
- One of the most original and irreverent games ever made.. where you play as...
- A solid driving simulator where every regulation of chassis matters.

Plus 5 other great games! ( hints in the next days! )



From their facebook page (so I'm told since I'm not registered to facebook).

Durante on Neogaf made a resolution fix for Dark Souls...in 23 minutes...before the game released. What? I bet this news will be a kotaku article before tomorrow. If 720p was scaring you off jump in.

Really From? Really?


How is this even possible without access to source code? Regardless I'm happy that people capable of PC voodoo magic is enthusiastic about Dark Souls. Now really considering on jumping in especially since Torchlight 2 hasn't been released yet I'm itching to play some online rpg game before life gets busy again.

He basically intercepted the .dll calls between the engine and directx. There is a lot more to it then that, but that is the most simplest way of putting it.

No idea what your talking about, but seems legit :) I'm just glad a few people understands and willing to dedicate their time in doing fixes/modding such as this for the community. From a preview of this game I heard it was pretty painful to play on keyboard/mouse, and framerate issues still persists. I don't mind the control issues as much, but hopefully someone would be able to fix framerate issues.

Damn, no wonder I saw 40 people giving Revelations 2012 away on steamgifts.com. In for this bundle unless someone would like to gift it to me. (then i could always have that excuse in my back pocket) I actually want to buy Revelations, I'm so pathetic :drool:

Sounds like another batch of 1c games to me: King's Bounty, Theater/Men of War, etc. If you bought the GG 1c complete bundle (or you are going to buy the upcoming Amazon one) then it's probably not worth it unless you want the Steam keys so badly. Hoping to be proved wrong...

My bet is Sacred Gold. It's on Steam and published by Strategy First (publisher for some games in other IG bundles). It's cheap enough to be in an Indie Gala bundle, and fits the "complete collection" hint.

Good catch. Seems likely. I'll kick myself a bit if they include Dark Star One as I just bought it during the Summer Sale for $2.50ish. Ah well, just means some lucky Coconut Queen will get my spare key from my $1.50ish group buy!

Re: King's Bounty. It's not an action RPG. Doesn't really fit the description.

Re: Achtung Panzer. It's not on Steam but it is a Strategy First published game. I think we're looking at a Strategy First bundle.

Nope.

And don't stress about the plot, or doing anything 'just right' in this game. Treat it like a cheesy 80's action movie, with horrible plot and voice acting, but lots of actions and over the top explosions.

As dumb as it sounds, if it had Steam achievements, I'd have no problem with paying $10 for it. Since it apparently doesn't, I shall wait and hope for a sale.

I actually misinterpreted it's not really 'series' but 'collection' so, as sunghost notes, Sacred Gold would fit this as it's the game + expansion.

My guesses:

- The complete collection of an awesome and award-winning action - RPG


Sacred Gold

- One of the few games that bring the tactical and strategic warfare of World War 2 to the PC.


Achtung Panzer.

- One of the most original and irreverent games ever made.. where you play as...


Ghost Master.

- A solid driving simulator where every regulation of chassis matters.


One of the Flatout games.

Other stuff will probably include Dark Star One (argh why did I buy this during the Summer Sale!), Disciples, Space Empire, Port Royal, etc.

Those seem very likely, not sure about the driving simulator though. I was actually very tempted to get Ghost Master and Dark Star One during the summer steam sale.. glad I passed on them now.

Dark Star One is an okay game. I stuck it through to the end but thought about quitting numerous times. 'Shallow' is the best descriptive I could give it and it's really a shame. The engine is nice and they have a solid framework in place to make an interesting experience but it's basically just slaughtering system after system of generic pirates while you upgrade your ship and slog through fairly repetitive missions. There's basically no point in trading or accepting mercenary missions at the various trade stations.

None are at all necessary, but the Black Market Boom pack (now 49 cents) includes the Air Propulsion gun, which sounds lame, but is actually the best way to clear out crowded, heavily armed places. It sort of makes you invincible to close-range attacks and for some of the tougher missions is almost indispensable. I've certainly gotten my 2 quarters' worth out of that DLC pack. Every other piece of DLC isn't as good as the stuff you'll find easily in the game.

Possibly that. Never really played the Flatout games (or any driving game, not a fan of the genre) so that guess was a bit uneducated.

Damn I bought Ghostmaster for 9.99 back in 2003 lol. (rebought on steam during summer sale) caved into the wife. :lol:
I'll pick up Skyrim in 2012 in the Indiegala XXX and finally see why Nancy is a happy whore.
