So can San Andreas be played with a 360 controller flawlessly?

Some nights I dream I lost my turtle hat and wake up sad.

I dreamed of turtle soup and woke up full.


Oh, how I long for turtle soup.
It warms the soul, the spirit,
all the day through. So rare a treat,
a special occasion it must merit.

Oh, how much I love this turtle soup.
But now I've found myself most bereft,
Upon looking into my bowl,
to see there is none left.

Oh, how I miss my turtle soup.
So much I've enjoyed this delicatessen.
I have somehow missed,
to learn my lesson.

Oh, how I loved that turtle soup,
I cooked up a batch quickly, and in that forgot,
how it upsets my stomach,
and left me feeling quite sickly.

Oh, how I'd love to talk,
more of turtle soup,
but I have to leave you now,
for I have to poop.

Hmm, I just realized that Steam hasn't run any "indie bundles" like they did in the summer sale. I guess that didn't work out for them. (Or the discounts were "too steep" for this Winter Sale.)


They probably weren't willing to compete at the same (potentially steep) discounts as Humble, Royale, Gala, etc. Best Valve did there were those 5 for $5 packs two years ago. Given their current lackluster discounts on everything else I doubt we'll see anything like that again.

Indie Gala is my fav bundle now outside of Humble still. Royale imo sucks 90% of the time.

From what I've played I find it fun. For $10 it's worth it in my eyes. Though the game is supposed to be at it's best in MP but I can't comment as I don't really intend to play MP with this game.


Yeah, i tinkered with the single player for about an hour myself. Definitely scratches that rts itch if you got it. Seems like it would be an engaging multiplayer expererience, will try it sometime this week.

I agree, I think theres only be one bundle were I was interested in more than one game in it as far as Indie Royale goes.

Royale tends to have one good game out of the entire bunch, while Gala has a few good ones. Humble always seems to have a great set of games, in my opinion. I also generally like Groupees.

There's no hidden dlc it's the base game and liberty city stories. If you have both there's nothing more of IV to get.

Well, they did slap all indie games they could think of into the Indie Super Mega Pack and called it a day apparently... to be honest, it IS a nice selection of games and quite the bargain indeed if you have been living under a rock and activated a new Steam account just yesterday...

Its price could even be justified if they gave you all games as single keys or let you keep the ones you already have as giftable items, but that has never been the case with all the other Steam bundles and this one unfortunately seems no different. It could be interesting to know if and how many copies they sold...

Indie Royale just annoys me, really. They get by by putting one interesting game in their bundles and slapping a $4+ price tag on them. They get so much praise and I have no idea why.

I always think Indie Gala sucks too, but then I realize I buy every single one of them and get like 8 games for $1.50 every time...

yeah, you have to select 'joystick' under controls, everything worked good, except i couldnt use the right analog stick to look around. it works better than the vice city option(i couldnt get the 360 controller to work on vice city). it works perfectly on gta 4 of course.

I've had good luck with L4D randoms but I think versus mode is terrible so I stay away from it.

That said, I rank Payday higher than L4D and both by miles higher than KF so most of my time has been with Payday. The only trouble you get in Payday is morons who drag the team down and even then their impact is limited.

To anyone looking to bite on King's Bounty, GGG has King's Bounty Platinum for $5.49 (Legend, Armored Princess, Crossworlds).

I voted Farming Simulator because I could. :lol:


Anyone know if this bundle is Steam activated?

I disagree. I just can't see anyone shelling out $70 on indie games in one go. It's like going to McDonalds and buying 70 burgers off the dollar menu, for yourself.

Have a look in your steam games library, if you have complete you'll have two separate entries, one for "Grand Theft Auto IV" and another for "Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City".

I would have bought the Indie Bundle on Steam if we got giftable copies of the ones I already owned.

I'm not quite sure; it says "DRM: Keycode Activation" but I'm used to seeing explicit steam labeling (or drm-free).

Edit: Well, it's not on Desura or Origin, so I'm not sure where it could activate other than steam.

With this talk about King's Bounty, if you bought the $20 1C pack from Gamersgate that time ago, you also own the whole franchise. I don't believe it is steamable though.

It does NOT have install limits, it DOES use securom(an unpopular form of drm)

I'm with you on that. I mean that it IS a favorable bundle from a pure value-for-money standpoint, since they're all quality games held in high consideration by public and critics, and they're offered at a price that is less than half of their already discounted price.

But, as you said, there's almost no chance of someone willing to pay the bundle's price without at least the option to sell back gift away or split with someone else part of its games...
