SERIOUSLY.

www.humblebundle.com/

It's early yet, so let the cheap fuckers reign, but paying $4 gets you Steam keys or downloads ofr Windows/Mac/Linux versions of:
  • MARK OF THE NINJA
  • FEZ
  • FTL
  • TRINE 2: COMPLETE
  • BRUTAL LEGEND
  • EETS MUNCHIES (beta)


...plus whatever they toss in as this goes along. You're all fucking dumb if you don't do this. Yeah you, too. Plus charity? Cripes... I cannot downside this at all.

Humble Bundle stuff is astonishing. I might pass on this one because I already own the two games I'd want most from it, but everyone should sign up and watch out for jaw-dropping deals. A few weeks back I got a whole raft of acclaimed strategy titles for $4 - and I could have paid less if I'd wanted.

I'd get on board if I didn't already own everything I'd want out of it. It's gotten to the point where I practically refrain from buying indy games since I know they'll end up in a bundle.

I'd get on board if I thought there was a shot in hell of me actually playing any of these on my computer. I just don't like playing games on the PC anymore.

Hell yes, thanks for the heads up, this is better than the EA one recently. I already own Mark of the Ninja and FTL, but I'd be stupid to pass up a deal this good for Trine and Fez.

Legomancer, what about PC gaming don't you like? If it's the sitting at a desk with a mouse and keyboard, just plug your PC to a TV via HDMI and use a 360 controller. That's what I do for most non strategy games on my laptop. Most games that came on consoles should be plug and play.

I just don't like playing on the computer. When I sit at my laptop I'd rather do something else.

So your B and O keys get a lot of use?

I got a notice from a friend today that gets it for 3.6. I bought it at... 4.6? Can't remember. Want the FTL, but the other games seem cool to.

I don't know what it means either.

Is HumbleBundle like Tanga for video games, or does it do other products as well?

S.

If Tanga was like HumbleBundle I would be making new posts for them as well. HumbleBundle, as a model, should not work. They get some indie devs to agree to sell their games, in a bundle, for however much a person wants to pay. If you want to pay $0.00, you can. You are just a dick. BECAUSE, you can tune some sliders to set how much of your money goes to the devs (divided equally or thereabouts), how much goes to charity (EFF, Child's Play, and new-to-me Watsi), and how much the Humble folks get for hosting and what not. If you go over a dollar, you get Steam Keys, and not just a link to the download of the game. If you go over the current average (now $4.59), you get bonus games (currently FEZ and FTL). They add another game or more on Wednesday AM.

Oh, and the games are DRM free. And cross-platform. And available on BitTorrent. And you get soundtracks too. And sometimes even source code!

They raise millions of dollars for developers of indie games. And millions for charity.

...is that like Tanga for video games?

So, there's a new package of games (I'll conclude video only from your description) up for sale each day or each week or something?

Every fortnight normally, although sometimes deals run longer or there are gaps. And while it's mainly games, it isn't always: the one prior to this was for a bunch of comedy videos.

Can you think of an activity, commonly undertaken in front of a computer, which necessitates first searching for a word that contains two B's and two O's?
