The Indie Story pack today is a very good deal, for those who haven't seen it. A bunch of games I found interesting but never enticing enough on their own, bundled together and discounted 92%

Ohhh and now with delicious corporate secrets. So many small, delectable indie games.

I bought the Story pack for Recettear alone.

...and judging by the leaked list, I'll be buying the indie packs every day. :0

Given that I have pretty much every entry in the list that's of any interest to me (and at least one item in every list), I'm likely to get, at most, the pulse pack :P
And even then, I doubt it.

Same here. Man, I hate Steam sales.

Also, XBLA took a cue, curse them. Among others, 'Splosion Man for 160 points and Trials HD for 400.

Got a chance to play a couple levels of Sonic 4 today. And wow they really messed up the physics.

Seriously, if I'm tossed out a high speed minecart I should not stop in mid-air and fall straight down. That's just weird.

Minutes after it's released on Steam, so many people on my friends list playing Super Meat Boy and I'm still about 10% downloaded...Damn, I need better internet. :(

I've played through and beaten all of Sonic 4 Ep 1. I really did enjoy the game. It felt, in may ways, like the classic 16-bit games. I have two complaints: first off, the physics, as you rightly note, are different. I really did not like the change at first, and I would prefer if they would use the older physics model. That being said, I think that if we had not played the 16-bit games, we would not have noticed---that is, the physics are different, but they are no better or worse (from an objective standpoint) than the physics of the older games. Once you get used to the physics, the game is quite playable.

Second, the game is short. On the other hand, what do I expect for $15?

Well, that bit of spam was (though inaccurate) actually close to being relevant.

Not too objectionable. :roll:

Consider trying veganism, etc.

Anyone mentioned Octodad yet? Bizarrely amusing.

Personally, I find Team Meat's response much more amusing.

Speaking of Super Meat Boy: Just finished the Light world (not counting warp zones, picking up bandages, and the bandage girls levels).

Frankly, I don't know whether to be proud of cry at the thought of all that's missing :(

Yeah, I just read that :D

In all seriousness though, not eating meat > eating meat, objectively, in almost every way.

Also lulz + meh at the trolling ... that is, the success of it. I'll be the first to admit not all PETA supporters are equally ... uh, "on top of things". The same holds true for supporters of most other things, as well.

"Coming from the fucktard with the ugly red wannabe domo?" ... XD
