<p>

Fantastic bundle just went up on Fanatical:

Dollar Classics Bundle

Pay $1:


I haven’t heard of even one of these games before. For a dollar though, I’m sure at least one has to be worth it.

How do they even pay this out, it’s less then a nickel a game, and the bundler gets to take a cut too.

Old games, that may likely suck, but whatever!

Im old (40+) and *I* don't recognize any of these games. I will say though, that Central Intelligence artwork is some quintessential late-80s ass shit!

Drakkhen alone is worth it. I guarantee it's the most trippy RPG you'll ever play.

I'm shocked most of you don't at least recognize Drakkhen, if for no other reason than it was also ported to the SNES (though that's the only version of it I ever played).

 

I'll probably bite on this, though I don't know if I'll play any of them anytime soon.  LOL

Thought it was an RPG about Dokken, ended up disappointed:

I recognized Drakkhen, Tunnel B1, and Alien Rampage. I still will not buy this bundle because I also know they're total dogshit.

 

this Indie Legends bundle is a great deal, though. Action Henk, Broken Sword, and Convoy are all good.

Sometimes you play that likely poop and man every game feels like gold. Used to make my gaming euphoria back in the day when I played Desura Freedom Friday games. Many were so bad that even a generic Compile Hearts RPG felt amazing afterwards.

Among the Sleep and Convoy are all I need. I'll probably wait a bit before I decide to buy just for those two.

Fahrenheit is good too.

Even better that the HD Remaster is in here.

Not so fond of the back 1/3rd of the game - but yeah, the first 2/3rds are very good.

The last third prevents me from recommending it, yeah. But it's still the best David Cage game.

My bundle rating is subjective based on how many games I own from it, and I own everything in Indie Legends 8 except Convoy. They were all bundled before.

 

I remember playing Indigo Prophecy on original Xbox back in the day. It would've been a must-play if they hadn't rushed the ending.

Indigo Prophecy is *still* a great game, even though it went completely off the rails. The pacing, switching, tension, up until the apartment attack drew me in *hard*. As people dont finish most games they start, I have no problem recommending it, as most will bail before the "really-dumb-shit" happens. I think the early portion is *that* strong. 

 

I cannot remember before or since playing as characters on opposite sides of a conflict where I genuinely wanted both to succeed.

Anybody want to do a split on the Dollar Viva Bundle?

 

All I want is the slots game. I'll give you 20 cents for it. That means you get the rest of that horse shit for only 80 cents.

 

 

Thanks to Lostmind76's generosity, I'm all set. Thanks again to him.

Wait. I have to pay you 80 cents to add that crap to my Steam profile? I think it should be the other way and you pay me to take the public shaming... Sound good? :)

A ton of new bundles are showing up...  

Including 2 "mystery" bundles.  Someone needs to be the guinea pig so the rest of us know if it is a good deal or not.  :-)  

It says they are AAA titles...  their definition of AAA is different then mine...

See what happens when I buy bundles? See? I spend dozens of dollars—maybe even a whole two—getting my hands on a bunch of mediocre games I want for some reason or another and then like four years later they all wind up in a Fanatical bundle for $3.

I mean, I probably won't touch any of those games for a good six or seven years to come!

It looks like you can get some pretty good stuff from the mystery bundles - Shadow of War Gold, Frostpunk, Civ 6.  Of course, there's a lot of games that have been bundled many times, but it might be worth the risk.

I bought the $5 one cuz why not and got:

 

Boom Box Blue (didn't have)

Darksiders Franchise Pack

Pewdiepie Legend of the Brofist

Tropico 4 Steam Special Edition

Dark Matter

Mimpi

 

Needless to say, a part of me hates you. The other part just wants you to contract herpes.

I'll just pretend I bought a bundle to scratch the mystery itch and got these games and refunded it. Thanks for saving me $5!
