And if those bundles didn't take all your money, here's another Humble Indie Bundle!

This time you get to pay whatever you want to get:
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Psychonauts (!)
LIMBO (!!)
Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP

Pay above the average and they throw in Bastion!

Okay, usually I'm not swayed by these indie bundles because they're always games I've never heard of. Almost *all* of these games are games I've heard of and/or played the demo to and was just waiting for the price to go down on XBL (except for Superbrothers - never heard of that one). The fact that I can set my price on all these is just too good to pass up. Downloading Bastion as I type . . .

That's a great deal.  It's a shame that I own most of those games, and I wouldn't play Amnesia if someone paid me. 

Bastion is amazing and one of the best games released last year.

I'm annoyed with it, too. I bought Amnesia when it was on sale, and I already own Bastion. LIMBO might convince me to pick it up, however; I've been wanting it for a LONG time.

EDIT: I bought it anyway. Best dollar I've ever spent. The cause is great.

Since I know a lot of Wing Commander fans are lurking around here, if you haven't had the chance/money to pick up Wing Commander on http://www.gog.com, the games are all half off this weekend. (Just $3 each!) The entire Ultima series is also half off!

FYI, if you're in need of a constipation aide, Amnesia's a perfect answer for that.

BTW- one of the funniest things I've ever seen online was Day9 (a Starcraft personality) doing a live stream of him playing Amnesia. He hit the "screaming like Ned Flanders" point at many, many times during the play-through.

I know someone whose first monster encounter in that game was him peering around a corner... into a monster's face. He apparently screamed and Alt-F4'd immediately, then proceeded to not play the game for a week.

Holy . . . crap . . .

Now if you buy (or have already bought) the Humble Indie Bundle V, you get Braid, Super Meat Boy, and Lone Survivor. Just . . . wow. Braid is another one of those games that I've been watching on XBL to go down in price (when I had money) and I've heard a lot of good things about Super Meat Boy. Lone Survivor is a new one, but the more, the merrier. So glad I picked this one up.

Dammit, why do I have to be saddled with a shitty video card? There are several here that I'd love to get, but I'm having enough problems with my recent purchase of Bioshock, let alone how low I'd have to go to make Left 4 Dead 2, GTA IV, or Deus Ex work.

I'll probably pick up Deus Ex. Thanks for pointing it out.
