#11904477 Humble Bundle Thread

Posted by donbaloo on 08 July 2014 - 08:45 PM

I love it when just the right games that have lingered on the periphery of my interest join together in an effort to convince me to buy them. Had none of these.

The Gaben giveth and the Gaben taketh away. Now that the Summer Seal is over and the thread is crawling . . .

Time for another contest.

Write me a Limerick.

It must be in correct format, it must be obscene (as all limericks should) and it must contain at least one game name from your Steam library. Entrants have to be CAG registered at least 3 months and have 20+ posts, only one entry per person. Contest ends in less than 24 hours from the time of this post. I'll pick my favorite submissions, and the winners get a game from my bundle leftovers. Quote this post with your entry.


The Devil May Cry one was good but in an effort to not surrender:

It's clear Anna still needs her toy,
as you're packing no Super Meat, Boy.
You should Fear for your wife,
Cause whats best in her life,
Is in fact Electronic Super Joy.

I honestly find this quite interesting from a sociological perspective, though I do wish Team Pink was looking better today.

Same here. I'm just hoping the abandonment of the "agreement" helps maintain adventure card values a little better now that there's incentive to compete again. I miss that 50¢ card value for my vote card!

It's been posted several times in this thread.

Ah, good...I was beginning to question reality.

I keep seeing posts about the credibility of the daily contest. I'm not a reddit follower but a friend linked me in to the reddit discussions where there was a massive cooperative effort to let each team win two days. It's been accurate every day so far. Apparently, it appears steam may have instituted the new tiered winnings to combat this. And it looks like it's working so far. Seems the cooperative alliance has broken down (plus some drama about Purple team or something).

I wouldn't have believed it but seems to be the explanation for the runaway winner each day. I also can't believe I'm the one delivering this info to an online community. I was led by friend to believe that I may be the only person in the world that doesn't visit reddit. Anyway, I was pretty fascinated by it.

I have wasted an inordinate amount of time trying to save an insignificant amount of money on Arcanum.

Well shit, dude, you could've done that *before* I "liked" your post.

Now it just looks like I "liked" it 'cause you deleted it...

Haha, sorry. Normally not an Internet bitcher but sometimes douchebaggery really bothers me. Ultimately decided I'd just be adding to the rest of threads waste. I'm just here for the deals though.

Thanks. I missed that. Sorry to clutter the thread.

No worries. Most of these persistent threads have become the social areas of CAG anyway. SNR can be frustratingly low most of the time. It's occassionally entertaining though.

and there are people porting Ultima!

What did you say? How does a random internet person know exactly what to say to convince me to buy a game I didn't think I wanted? How did you know? WHO TOLD YOU!?!?!??

This is exactly how Rumplestiltskin felt....

Total War Rome 2 is currently 29.97. With 20% code it comes to 23.98. Cheapest by far at this point as far as I know. No links, on mobile and rushing. Sorry.

:rofl:

As someone who's been playing Anna lately (wouldn't advise it) and is also a chicken, I can tell you that it is NOT creepy. Maybe a little unsettling at times, but there is no danger whatsoever that I've seen, and some of the obvious budget cuts make parts that are intended to be scary unintentionally hilarious. So far it's pretty bad though, so you aren't missing much if you skip it.

Oh man, I disagree! Started Anna EE a few days ago and have really enjoyed it. I went in cold and knew nothing about it except that it was supposed to be kind of creepy. The process of discovery has been pretty enjoyable and the creep out stuff has been sufficiently goosebumpy. One part in particular ranks up with one of the best spooked out gaming moments ever for me. Hate you're not enjoying it Mrninjasquirrel!

LN's drops are ALWAYS insane.

I've been wanting the xcoms for a while (didn't have any of them) and really regretted not getting them during the last Amazon sale. When I saw Tony post he was putting it back up I was thrilled. Then LN dropped those bombs...feel like I won a lottery!

Thanks a ton for the XCOM bundle LN3000. Amazing. Would build a wayside shrine to you here if it were appropriate.
