Better than Shank 1? I enjoyed Shank 1, but it was a real button masher. I imagine most CAGs already have Shank 2 from HIB7 anyhow.


True. It's already been in a great bundle.

And if Shank 1 is a button masher then quite literally every beat em up from Muramasa down to Double Dragon is one as well. Shank 2 is a huge leap above Shank 1 though.

I thought Shank 1 was a little empty. Maybe I expected more from it. I'll grab S2 though if we get a HH.

Yeah, for me it was more of a a surprise to get "gamer's thumb" while playing Shank 1 out of the sheer amount of button mashing (without some of the finesse of some other beat-em-ups). Poor analogy, but say, DMC1 never gave me controller-thumb (but various 80s classics do). My guess is the difference is timing finesse and pacing (having those regular little bits of downtime). I kinda disagree on Double Dragon. It had pacing, I never recall controller thumb from the NES version.

That's great to hear, I tried giving Shank 2 a try right after finishing Shank 1, but at the time it had all the appeal of a third bowl of coco puffs with chocolate milk.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

I guess you didn't appreciate the consequences of your moral choices? Your CAG membership has been temporarily suspended while you contemplate the fact that you could have gotten Shank 2 cheaper and sooner in HIB7.

...and would should amend the rules, missing a numbered HIB should be a bannable offense.

Unless you already own all of the games, or enough that it'd be cheaper to buy the games that you don't own during a Steam sale.

Just when you thought the latest IndieGala wasn't jumping the shark enough. Buying it funds a political campaign in Canada.

The Matt Toner Campaign

Last year, gaming entrepeneur Matt Toner decided to help save the legendary Vancouver game industry... by running for politics. And now he is one short step away from establishing change for the better. Revenue raised by this bundle will be used to support his campaign and directly rebuild the Vancouver indie scene.

I'm a PC Convert as of around 2/2013, in 2 months time I've spent $150 and I now have over 300 Steam games. During that time I have attempted to get as many past HIBs as possible from trade. As such I believe this ruling should be reversed and I should be able to poop in your cereal.

Lol. One of the few games you can consistently get cheaper on consoles than PC. If it does go on sale it's ALWAYS for around $45 and never anything lower. I think BLOPS2 had only one sale so far.

So any thoughts on the spore DLC? Is it worth it? Figured Ill at least pick up the base game for 5$, and that the cute/creepy DLC was basically worthless. So that leaves the galactic dlc

It's $24.99 at GreenManGaming right now.

Steam code.

There's a 20% code that's active until tomorrow, but I can't get it to apply to Dishonored.
