    Humble Indie Bundle

    Figured this was worth mentioning here, considering the interest others here have shown in the indie game community previously.

    The Humble Indie Bundle #2 (pay what you want for five awesome indie games)

    It was terribly convenient for flushing out whatever change I had left in my paypal account .

    Although their hearts are in the right place, this disappoints me for two reasons:-

    1. All the good games in this bundle I already have (paid full price for them);
    2. The other games are unfinished and strangely "beta" quality. If you think of this as being a showcase for independently-produced games, it doesn't hold up well.

    It would tickle me greatly if this behaviour provoked a similar giveaway from mainstream publishers, like EA. How much would you pay for five of theirs? I have a figure in my head that pleases me...

    Two cents? Seriously most of the mainstream games this year have been a bit of a let down for me. I've been on Steam picking up titles I missed from years back as well as some games from no-name companies and am enjoying them more than the new releases.

    The only new release I cannot play but am dying to play is Just Cause 2. I have to move to W7 for that and I'm not ready to switch just yet.

    Attach some controller to your PC to play it, though. The game isn't keyboard friendly.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
