got it for 4.96 woohoo, been wanting dustforce since it was released, already had vessel but felt it was still worth it for the other games. :lol:

i'd like a steam key for valley without wind.


Awesome! i was thinking of waiting a bit more earlier since it fluctuates by the minute or so. haha! me being impatient got the best of me this time. solid bundle for newcomers like myself. hope they add more BTA games in the next days or so.

Got my Dustforce issue worked out. rep said I had somehow matched the average, even though it was consistently a few cents lower than my payment when I was looking. But he was nice enough to upgrade me regardless, so yay for that!

Now just have to schedule these games into my play schedule. I'm thinking around 2024 I'll be able to get to them.

nice to here it got resolved. wow! good thing you got a hold of a rep so quickly considering they probably are busy the last hour or so because of the launch.

In the worst timed launch I can remember, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is out today as well. $9.99 with a 10% discount for the first two weeks.

Since I already have most of the games in HIB6, I was only going to go in at the dollar level and wait for Dustforce to be on sale later... but HIB gives the soundtrack with Dustforce (and only when you beat the average, despite what their mention of the OST's on the main page suggests). Getting the game together with its OST seems worth the extra $4.33. I've listened to the tracks on the composer's website and am glad to add it to my music collection.

Yeah, was just playing it a little. The music is great!

Although you guys joke, Magicka is actually a really good game. I think it's more than worth it at the current price and you should all give it a go.

I'd even be up for playing some co-op too.

New Humble Bundle is nice though, I already owned Rochard and Shatter but still a good deal. Here's hoping they add some nice bonuses later.

Magicka is a good game, but the amount of DLC they come out with is overkill. They should focus on improving their netcode rather than releasing so much new DLC.

I wanted this but I knew I didn't want to pay $10 for it. Now I can Steam sale it :D

Nobody said magicka wasn't good. I dont care for it personally It's just on sale evey other week. That's the joke of it all. If you don't own magicka at this point odds are you're new.

Just got my bundle for $6.00. Only had Torchlight so it wasn't a big waste. Always wanted to play Vessel but never have seen it cheap.

Now waiting for a good sale on The Walking Dead on Steam (can't buy it from Amazon) and I'm all set for a little while longer :applause:

Haha, I already own all the games except for SPAZ and Dustforce. Not sure I want to BTA for Dustforce yet. - the gameplay style looks similar to Super Meat Boy which I also have. Kinda looks fun though. Suppose I will put down some money for SPAZ, at least, since I've been mildly interested in it for a while despite it not being in the usual "genre" of games I like to play.

Like I said earlier, Rochard was a pretty fun platforming game. Shatter is a great breakout/arkanoid style game (apparently with decent music too, but I wouldn't know). I have Torchlight but I've only played maybe half a hour of it. People generally say it's great, though... I'm just not into these Diablo-style games too much. I recently acquired Vessel in the summer sale and haven't had a chance to play it.

I just can't stop buying these humble bundles. They're usually so chock-full of awesome.

Somehwat annoying. Tony Hawk HD is £9 in my region but $9 in the US (£5.53) so just to note, UK CAG's may want to ask their US friends to buy for them.

Have everything but dustforce and vessel. Not sure this bundles worth it for me. Maybe if they add more to it later on that I don't have.

Why oh why Steam keeps putting Magicka on sale. The game is great, but I would think everyone have it by now :lol:

http://www.indiegala.com/ Their site is no longer showing the last bundle and they were making references to the new bundle earlier in the week. A lot of times these bundles launch on the same day.

Hm, that's longer than I thought. I'm only about 4 hours in. I had hoped I was at the halfway point, but I guess not.

I like the story, but I find the puzzles a bit difficult and the whole system more archaic than I like.

Still, I always feel like I'm supposed to play those games that are considered classics, so I'll probably go back to it.

The story and some of the areas are really beautiful, so I'd recommend playing through. However, some of the puzzles could be clearer, and it's sometimes easy to not know where you need to go. Don't be afraid to use a walkthrough to get you through the parts you get stuck on. I peeked every once in a while to get through them, but I definitely enjoyed the story.

Same with me, I decided to get it anyway and just give all the money to charity. Hopefully the extra game(s) that hey add will end up being something good that I don't have. Still a very good bundle with quality games.

Oh man, there's nothing quite like a new iteration of the Humble Indie Bundle. I just grabbed one for myself and my old college pal.

I'm feeling pretty good right about now.

Yeah, it's the only bundle series that I actually follow. I can only imagine how amazing it is for people who don't always already own half or more of the games.

By the way, I think it was Sunghost that warned everyone not to grab Rochard when it was a Daily Deal. Mr. Host, your guess that it'd show up in the Humble Indie Bundle was correct.

You are the CAG of the day, in my book.

Thanks for input. It's a story I would like to see the end of.

One of the reasons I didn't keep playing it is because every time I tried to alt-tab out of the game and do something else, a black box would take up nearly all the screen. I couldn't do anything with it, and I couldn't make it go away as long as I had the game running.

I'm usually doing a few different things when I play PC games, and I found it annoying not being able to use my computer for other things simultaneously.

Anyone have advice?

Yeah, I got the email from Facekick. It's still appalling how they PROMOTE their bundle with the fact that they won't give you any Steam or Desura keys with the games.

I'm glad I'm still not tempted to give them any of my money, even just a dollar.

They have basically a huge banner ad on Steam Gifts now too for that shoddy "bundle".

Shatter was also a daily deal a few days back, for what it's worth.
