Happy Hour is an Indiegala thing, not a Humble Bundle thing.
Crappy Hour is a Groupees things, right?

Valve seems to have decided (either on purpose or just from being clueless) the consumers will police the market (with their money). Not surprisingly, to me anyways, it doesn't work.
Paid mods and Steam GreenLight are the future of PC gaming!
OTOH Greenlight and Early Access is fucked up. Greenlight is Valve throwing their hands up and admitting there's more games that want to get in than they have time to review and deal with. Early Access is them naively trying to get in on the Kickstarter craze without much thought to the fact that they're a store and it's really not okay for a store to wash their hands of a product they are selling no matter how many disclaimers they give.
Honestly, I think Valve is a really fucked up, half assed company that has strange ideas about management and really no clue what the they are doing. They just so happened to be way ahead of the curve once in a very important area with regarding to distribution of games in the future and have been coasting ever since.
We all complain about them but realistically there's not a better alternative and until there is we're stuck with them.
But, GOG Galaxy is going to take the Galaxy by storm....
You just watch, wait, and see...

I'll sell you 200 Steam keys for $90.
Depends on what the 200 Steam keys are.
Geez, I guess I need to be more careful w/ my words.
Well, I buy (close to) everything pretty much when they hit rock bottom type of pricing...especially if 75% off or better; and/or they hit a bundle.

Screw that. I need an RPG where I am a dinosaur.
You hit the Allosaurus for 133!
You have gotten better at Tail Swipe (27)
You hit the Allosaurus for 415! Critical Hit!
You have defeated the Allosaurus
You have gained a level! Brachiosaurus (Level 14)
When are you putting this Dino Age: Origins game out?

All you younger folks who are going to see Max Max: Fury Road, BETTER have seen at least the first two (you can skip Beyond Thunderdome). The Road Warrior is still the best movie in the franchise by far IMO.
I actually caught the original Mad Max movie, last weekend.
Really dug it.
I do need to see the other 2 from the original trilogy (Road Warrior + Beyond Thunderdome).

Having never even looked at screenshots i guarantee it's not worth anywhere close to 26 bucks.
I'm wondering when Raven's Cry is going to be bundled in a $1 Tier. That might be, when I leap on that one.
As cool as that game seemed in premise + concept, it really seems like it still was in a Pre-Alpha state, from when the reviews came out.

so... how was it? compared to the River of time
Never played RoT, even though I do have it.
Drakensang: The Dark Eye feels like a 3D foreign + lower-budget cRPG similar to that Dragon Age: Origins or any of those older D&D party-based strategic-style cRPG's - i.e. NWN: Hordes expansion; especially Neverwinter Nights 2; Baldur's Gate 1 + 2; and Icewind Dale games. Been years since I played this - but, anyways; I did like what I played quite a bit.
It wasn't an easy game by any means, either - which makes it again feel similar to those old-school CRPG's from the 90's and NWN2. One thing I recall is if someone gets knocked-out, you can bring them back - but they wind-up injured. So, you'll have to use something to heal-up the injury, to rid of the penalty. I really liked this system - as it made an already challenging game...even more challenging.
There isn't tons of voice-acting (thankfully) and the voice-acting isn't really that good even - as one might expect w/ a lower-budget game + especially from a foreign game. The writing isn't spectacular, either. But, that doesn't mean the plot isn't bad; not by any means. Though, it does take a bit to get going - i.e. just like another European game series called The Witcher.
I really should get back to Drakensang: TDE sometime....and eventually start River Of Time.
