    The two Bionic Commando games are pretty tempting at that price too.

    I can vouch for ReArmed. I played and loved it on 360. Never could beat the last level though.
    Anybody play the 3D game? Is it good. Is it good for $2.49? Can I claw a guy in the face? That alone is probably worth $2.50 to me.

    Also, I bought one of these at the grocery store. I'm amazed at how jittery I feel. Usually soda doesn't affect me, but this one is. I just thought a tall boy soda would be novel. It is, but it's also going to ensure that I don't sleep today.

    And now that I've looked at Cook, Serve, Delicious looks amazing and like I would be amazingly bad at it.

    Give away update!

    Here's my current giveaway list and rules for my Extra Life marathon on the 26th. Some smaller games might get combined if more popular games go on sale before then. I might get some Capcom stuff to add to it, and then combine like Eets, TOM, and Rocketbirds into one giveaway, same deal with Serious Sam games.
    **List of games to be given away to donators during the Extra-Life Marathon:**

    + ANY GAME ON STEAM! (Each entry increases value by $1, $60 maximum)
    + Bioshock Infinite
    + Tomb Raider 2013
    + Magic 2014 - Duels of the Planeswalkers
    + Trine 2
    + Final Fantasy VII (2 copies)
    + Mark of the Ninja
    + Brutal Legend
    + FTL
    + FEZ
    + Teleglitch : Die More Edition
    + Eets
    + Serious Sam - First Encounter
    + Serious Sam - Second Encounter
    + Hard Reset
    + System Shock 2
    + Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken
    + Virus Named TOM

    + Indie Gala v21 (Crusader Kings II, Two Worlds II + Pirates DLC, Knights of Pen and Paper, Ether Vapor Remaster, Gorky 17, Fairy Bloom Freesia, Satazius)

    Rules of Give-Away Contests!
    1. Each hour during the broadcast, I'll announce what game is going to be given away. Viewers will then have 30-45 minutes to donate at least $1 to my Extra Life page to be entered into the current contest. Make sure to leave your Steam account and email address so I can contact the winner!
    2. Each dollar will count as one entry into the current contest.
    3. After the set period of time, I'll tally up the names and throw them through a random number generator a few times. Whatever name gets rolled will win the prize.
    4. Prizes are either Steam product keys, or Steam gift copies. So you must have a Steam account in order to receive your prize.
    5. "ANY GAME ON STEAM" qualifies for any game purchasable on October 26-27th on steam. The value of which is determined by the number of entries. I.E. if 15 people donate $1 each, I will buy the winner any game up to $15 as a Steam gift. Maximum value of $60.

    Edit - raising the max of any game on steam to $60 to include new releases which are 59.99 for some reason >_>

    I seem to recall hearing good things about the Sherlock game, and bad things about GoT around here. Anyone try R.A.W.?

    Still disappointed in the lack of a 2-pack on RE5

    Waffling on the Bionic Commando pack. Talking to the Steam friend with over forty hours in the 3d one.

    Wish they had brought the second retro one to consoles, as I hear they added jumping

    I'm at least in for for Cities XL. The other games don't really interest me but a city builder at that price is pretty much a no brainer.

    Dark Void Zero is a fun game, especially at a buck twenty-four. It's old style Capcom Nintendo Hard 2D sidescrolling, jetpacking, alien blasting, controller throwing fun.

    And at 2.50 you may want to give Dark Void itself a look. It's not a great game, but it has great moments. Namely all of the sets where you can switch seamlessly between a GoW style cover based shooter, to hovering around with your jetpack and raining death from above, to full flight mode dogfighting Illuminati Lizardman UFOs. Oh yeah, Tesla gives you the jetpack too. How cool is that? Sometimes the game gets a bit too cover-based third person shooter but when it lets you cut loose it is glorious. Soundtrack is by Bear McCreary too, of Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead fame.

    What's the quickest/easiest way for when Looking through my Library and seeing a game but have no fucking clue what type of game it is or how it plays, to find out that information? Just go to Store page? Community Hub? Why can't the store description be listed on the Library page for old people like me that buy games and don't remember what the hell they are!

    Dark Void bugged out on me when I played it, so there wasn't any music.

    Also the game suffered from a bunch of clear budgeting issues, as the ending comes out of nowhere.

    Seems to be a theme in most games

    So you're saying "A REAL FUCKING ENDING" is a valid bullet point on the "back of the box?"

    Just a heads up:

    One of the first reviews of the first episode of "The Wolf Among Us" is up on PC Gamer. It got a 90, same as the Walking Dead's first episode. It seems to be keeping up to TWD's quality. I'm super excited for it, the first episode is out tomorrow.

    Secondly, a Steam page is up for "The Stanley Parable". It's out in a week on the 17th. I think I might grab it and Gone Home at the same time and just spend some time exploring some places with neat stuff.

    The Stanley Parable's description:
    The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again. This world was not made for you to understand.

    Capcom deals were tempting until I saw Origin sales on Sims expansions. Now I have a feeling my limited funds will be diverted.

    About the Weekly Humble:

    I wonder if the hangup that people have when comparing Dragon Knight Saga/Amalur with an MMO is that they're thinking about the quest structure, not the heavily cooldown-based combat.

    Bandwidth caps and time can be an issue here.
    Personally, if I want to play <a thing> for 30 minutes, on impulse, I'm happy waiting 30 minutes for it to download, while I make tea. More than that and I'll just play something I downloaded overnight.

    :@Banzai5150 - I agree with @Xeddicus. Store page, description, trailer. Bam. Maybe a review from somewhere you trust.

    Was the Stanley Parable made by those Boner Toots people, because that description sure sounds like something they would fart out.
