A friend showed me a Kickstarter for a game called Mercenary Kings, a Metal-Slug-esque RPG that looks absolutely amazing to me, and also includes a copy of their other game, Wizorb, which I'm guessing will be given away as a Steam key. The Kickstarter is almost over, so get in while you can!

For those interested, he also showed me the Pebble, an awesome-looking watch with some smartphone-like functionalities. The Kickstarter is over, and the price is somewhat high for a watch, but it's definitely cool to look at. ;)

A Worms Revolution 4-pack is up now. It slashes $15 off the price, which makes it $44.99. Good shit.

Don't let that abomination fool you. They've done great things with the formula in the past (Worms: Armageddon). I played the hell out of that as a kid, but I completely agree with you.

Their implementation of the AI in that game is absolutely awful. Either they blow themselves up, or they find the exact angle and power it takes to land a grenade on top of your worm's head, perfectly balanced might I add. It's nothing BUT rage-inducing, but the MP wasn't that bad if you could get past the awkward controls.

There we go. $11.24 a piece.

Worms Armageddon is easily worth $10 (it makes all the new Worms games look like crap, trust me), so I may bite on that price.

Played through the first 15 levels or so of 99 Levels to Hell. The gameplay is fairly solid and standard side-scrolling platform shooter fare though it feels like a game that could be done in-browser without losing much. Didn't unlock anything, and was kind of disappointed that when I selected To Menu it didn't warn me that all my progress past the first boss and all my character gear+stats would be wiped. Outside of that, the jumping physics seem a bit off to me -- air control seems far too limited if you have no momentum going into your jump. That said, that's my only real complaint about the game, and I look forward to future versions. Definitely well worth the bundle's price of admission.

Fallout 3 supposedly doesn't play well with quadcore processors. I know some, perhaps most, people haven't had issues but it's a common enough problem to find people posting about it.

Try the solutions in this thread; they worked for me.

Fallout 3 was crashing constantly for me on Win Vista x64 with a Phenom II x4 955 BE until I tried that fix. It's only my opinion but it was one of the most awesome games I've ever played.

Good thing I already own that pony game...otherwise the rainbow....its calling me (& my wallet)

BTW: Are the rest of the games in the bundle multiplayer only (like the last bundle)...if there was singleplayer it would be appeal but multiplayer-only games aren't my thing?

It gets even better. This is the email I sent to EA asking to delete my account and explaining the issue:

This is their response:

I should mention that during the original chat they refused to give me the date of birth that was on my account.


Outstanding. You should check Consumerist to see if they already have an example like that, and if not, then submit it.

Yes, Mercenary Kings looks pretty slick. Do want.

BAB3? I'll get it. I don't have the rainbow horsey game yet, and I can't resist adding more games to my Steam account.

As for the Winter Wolves bundle, what's interesting is that several of their games are on Greenlight. I voted for them, but I'm not holding out much hope. But I will probably pick up that bundle once it goes live.

Mercenary Kings doesn't impress. I'd rather have solid action than loot grind.

And, to be honest, it will release cheaper than the Kickstarter would be paid for. Since it is already funded, why pitch in to that?

Still a little upset that Project Giana only BARELY squeaked by. It HAD A DEMO. THATS MORE THAN EVERY OTHER KICKSTARTER HAS BEEN ABLE TO PROVIDE

Thanks! Traded in Greed: Black Border (that was free) for another $0.50 off, so it only ended up being $1.37!

Definitely the cheapest yet for that one. :D

It's anyone's guess. It went up, didn't have a 4-pack option, then had one ten minutes later, then didn't have one again another ten or fifteen minutes later.

Either it's a technical problem, or there never was suppose to be a 4-pack and it was added accidentally. Or they put the 4-pack up at the wrong price and took it down to change it. Who knows.

Really annoying though, since randomdud, M_F_A_H and I were all ready to bite on the 4-pack before it disappeared.

I am actually starting to resist the idea of buying these bundles unless there is something I really want. A month or two ago I started trying some of these indie games I would get in bundles. Shocking I know, and they were mostly meh to crap. So then I rethought to myself, why did I buy this. I haven't bought much indie bundles since, and I am still on the fence with BAB 3.

Were also not talking Bad Rats crap, were talking a step above that which is my do not want thing. The game has to be Bad Rats level of crap to make me want to play it.

Crap. Seeing it full price at $9.99.Maybe it was a mistake? I own an original copy, but it may just be worth a digital steam version for $2.00

I've been doing the same thing, not picking up the bundles unless there's one or two games I wanted before the bundle launched.

That was my issue too. The art style looks interesting but the game doesn't WOW me enough to want me to support them like I did with Shadowrun Returns and a couple other games. I already got Wizorb when it was on sale and we all know MK will show up on Steam eventually at a 50% or 75% sale.

Thanks for this info and to everyone else who suggested things. I found out that maybe fddshow audio codes were another possible cause for the locking up, but it seems I don't have that installed, so I've followed the suggestion above, hopefully that will fix it as the lockups are more frequent now (takes 2 or 3 attempts just to load the game, and now it locks up occasionally on the VATS shooting)

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

Saints Row The Third is currently on sale for $10 at GMG. Add this coupon: GMG25-1BW0K-K1A3G and it gets down to $7.50. That was enough for me to bite on the game, using up the remainder of my credit there. Not quite as good a deal as the franchise pack, but for those who don't want everything else, this works well.

Aside from the season pass, are there any other dlc that are absolutely necessary?

The Season Pass DLC is mediocre as hell and everything else is costume pack or vehicle crap. You don't need ANY of the DLC but anything you want you should be able to eyeball.

Like for instance, when it was cheap, I couldnt resist the gang clothes DLC for the Decker Skater outfit, which I then had to mod to look correctly because THQ and Volition are terrible companies.
