Bundlestars got really screwy for me. I usually use Paypal but I tried to order something and it wouldn't let me choose my preferred Paypal payment. Says it's not available for this order. I tried Steam just to try and it works there. Something screwy there at Bundlestars.

Got Rocket League off Bundlestars today with no issues using paypal.

Same for me.  Bought the Arkham Origins bundle and couldn't do Paypal CC.  It would only let me use debit even if I added a card.  I ended up just using a Virtual CC instead.

Meh. Good for those people who don't buy bundles regularly I guess.

Yeah, if you skipped the second tier of that one Humble and skipped that one G2A bundle.

For me it would just be Unbox, Cluster Truck and Last Station...not sure if worth it, unless someone can convince me on those games. I missed that Humble Bundle, or I wouldn't even be thinking of this bundle.

Yeah.  Those are what I'm looking at, too.  (Well, and one or two DLC for Vanguard Princess.)  Last Station is really tempting, but I'd guess it makes its way into more bundles soon.

Unbox and Shadowrun for me. Can't really justify spending $3.50 for just two out the bunch.

I've been wanting to play Unbox and I Am Bread, so I'll jump in for those alone and sell off any unwanted keys.  If I've never played a Shadowrun game, can I start with the game that's bundled here?

I think all 3 games are standalone....but i'll let someone else chime in on that.

Yeah, they're all standalone. Dragonfall is my clear-cut favorite of the three games on Steam (Dragonfall > Hong Kong >> Returns; Boston Lockdown doesn't even exist IMO) so it's a fine place to start.

Thanks for the responses.  I'm surprised how great of a bundle this is (and I only had Goat Sim in my library).

I've played Shadowrun Returns...and I thought that was great, actually.

 

I've had both Dragonfall & Hong Kong for a while - yeah, I guess I really should get around to playing those, eh? A lot of people prefer those two over SR Returns.

 

Damn backlogs...

Returns is a fine enough game, just that Dragonfall took the foundation of that game and improved upon it in a number of important areas. It's got better writing, better story, better character development, better pacing, and an overhauled UI in combat.  I think it would be tough to go back to Returns after playing through Dragonfall if only because of the small quality of life improvements that the sequel added.

 

Hong Kong isn't nearly the step up that Dragonfall was but they did re-work Matrix gameplay a bit. Story wasn't as good in HK but was fairly strong nonetheless.

 

If you liked Returns I think you'd love Dragonfall and HK. That series as a whole ended up being one of the best I've played in a long time.

Returns was my first and it was great!  Dragon Fall was taking such greatness to a new height.  You should try them out.

BTW this deals with Bundlestars but not a deal. Actually messaged their support to see what the heck was up with Paypal not allowing me to use my usual pay choice. I even dropped and re-added said choice, but it doesn't work there. According to them when any buyer (e.g. you) checks out, a security check is done on the PayPal account and the payment and our security system determines what funding sources are available for use for the transaction.  In most cases, the buyer will have the use of all available funding sources but sometimes it may restrict certain ones based on a combination of factors. So I guess my usual source isn't good enough...just will equal a lot less Bundlestars purchases when I have to use my CC or something.

Each and every one of these fine pieces of software should be considered the absolute pinnacle of digital art. It would be utter folly to try and single out just one to rise above the rest.

It depends on what kind of casual games you like.

 

Like Indef, I liked Pickers a lot.

 

If you're more into action, I thought Luxor Evolved was very good. Glowfish is pretty decent as is Luxor Mahjong and any of the Seven Wonders games.

 

It's really overkill on Luxor and Seven Wonders, but they're all pretty well-made casual games, and a dollar is an incredible price.

Good deal for a solid game if you like the Assassin's Creed/Far Cry style of 'open world' games.  Mad Max feels a bit generic but is overall fun to play for ten or so hours.

Agreed @ the underlined and bolded stuff.

 

I really liked the mix of Batman Arkham style of combat (even though that is kind of beat-to-death by now) and especially the vehicular combat.

 

Plus, that Mad Max game runs like a dream on both my 4GB 960m laptop and my desktop PC with GTX 970. It just both runs & looks great.
