    I played the demo for Audiosurf a while back and loved it enough to pre-download it for when I had the money to buy it, so you should at least give the demo a whirl if you're on the fence.

    Audiosurf for 1.50. Done.

    If you haven't got Batman Arkham Asylum get it now - it's really cheap atm.

    Oh? The only one in the Indie pack I've played is Gish. AYIM and Puzzle Agent look like fun, Jolly Rover not so much. Have no idea what to expect from Recettear. Um... yeah I'll probablly buy it tomorrow. I'll leave AudioSurf(which I have tried before) as GH is more than adequately fullfilling my rhythmgaming-needs right now.

    Quoting this because it's easy to miss.

    From the Steam page on the giveaway:

    I bought Alpha Protocol last night, too. The third-person view looks really stupid, but otherwise the game looks interesting.

    But PC or PS3?

    I tried getting Alpha Protocol, Prototype and the Indie Energy Pack about an hour before the deadline, but something happened during the payment process and the pop-up window that was supposed to open and load PayPal for the completion of the transfer disappeared. Then I kept getting an error about problems in the payment and please try again in a minute, thank you. Restarting and what not didn't help, so I tried paying by credit card. Same error, but after another restart, the games weren't in my cart and when I tried adding them again for another try, it turned out I already owned them.

    The library actually showed them listed but when I tried installing any of them, it complained about the payment process not being completed and please wait 2-4 hours and if still doesn't work, log out and back in and what have I been doing the whole time with all those restarts?

    Long story short, about an hour after the sale was over, the games disappeared from my library

    Steam Support was prompt in responding to my ticket but they suggested I just do another purchase. Yeah, like I'm gonna pay 100 bucks instead of the 21 I should have payed, when it was all their fault (which they all but acknowledged in the ticket)

    Did you actually have a discussing about it with them explaining that it was a time dependent purchase?


    Also - come on people, Borderlands (I know the sale is over but still) - PC or PS3/console?

    You made the right choice. That's the best game I've played in an age.

    I know. I needed something good to sit around and play while I let Thanksgiving dinner digest.

    I'll be sitting around, overloading on Batman, while acting like I'm practicing for lamaze class.

    Yeah, I specifically explained in the ticket that by the time the games were removed from my library and I could try buying them again, the sale deadline had had expired for about an hour. But my ticket was rather long - about as long as my previous post here, so they probably just skimmed right over it without actually reading any of the details.

    Now I suggested that I transfer 25 in my steam wallet, out of which they could then take the required amount and drop the games in my account. It's most certainly doable, anyway. We'll see what they say about it.



    Btw, I was about to get Borderlands as well (or rather, have someone from a REAL country gift it to me - "German low violence version" vOv), but someone on IRC gave me a link to Play.com where they sell it and all 4 expansions for 20 bucks and free delivery so I decided to hold off on buying it from Steam and see if they offer a similar pack.

    SubJeff: Borderlands on PC, silly. Especially since the vast majority of us have it, and can co-op the hell out of it with you.

    So, Alpha Protocol and Batman: AA GotY are mine. Wish I had the spare five bucks to get Kane and Lynch 2, but my paycheck won't hit until after the holidays (Monday most likely). Oh well, I have plenty to play for now.

    Fuckers. They picked their indie bundle games so I would have to buy all of them, didn't they?
    I'll probably get one or two of those bundles, also hoping there'll be a sale for Just Cause 2. Awesome game.
    I am such a whore.

    Thanks to gunsmoke (and EvaUnit02 and mothra for offering), I now own Alpha Protocol. I also bought Shank, and the Indie Story Pack just for Recettear. Dammit, this sale is gonna bleed me dry.

    Haha yeah, there seems to be at least one must-have title in each of them.

    I got the Indie Story Pack. Loving Puzzle Agent so far. It's about Nelson Tethers: FBI Agent, Puzzle Department. Agent Tethers gets sent to the small village of Scoggins to investigate mysterious events at the eraser factory. But the peculiar locals seem more interested in laying out complicated puzzles for him to figure out than helping out. I swear to God it's as if the Coen brothers were commisioned to make a puzzle-game for kids. I mean look at this shit!

    So far I've bought Kane & Lynch 2 and ArmA2: Operation Arrowhead + British Armed Forces DLC.

    I found the K&L1 to be surprisingly pretty good, it was well written and had some highly memorable set-piece missions. I was waiting for the sequel to hit the bargain bin too.

    ArmA2 Combined Operations (vanilla + OA) is pretty much required for online play and a lot of the mega-mods in the pipeline. I had been waiting for a good price on OA.

    BTW, all ArmA 2 products are 50% off today, not just OA. Eg Combined Operations is $22.49 USD.

    Heads up to XBox gamers: Live Marketplace also has a few good deals today. Trials HD is 400 MS points and Splosionman is 160. I got them both.

    Do these specials apply to everyone or just XBL Gold subscribers?

    Yeah, loved it too. Fargo meets X-files meets the puzzle page.

    I played it on the iPhone (great little game for killing time). Much better than I expected. Which in a way is weird, because the puzzles are a bit hit-or-miss, but that just doesn't seem to hinder the fun. Atmosphere did a lot..

    I assume it is near impossible to suit the difficulty to a wide range of players. So hit-or-miss is probably unavoidable in a game like this. And perhaps I've played too many puzzle games..

    Though there was one puzzle that stumped me, its solution required an assumption that I didn't make. In the 'determine the winner' puzzle there was no reason to assume the losers of the first round didn't compete with each other for 3rd place. But unless you assumed they didn't, there weren't enough clues.

    I've picked up Batman, Torchlight, and Mechanrium so far. And I'm too damn sick to enjoy them.

    I'm going back to bed. I'm cold.

    So I got Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light of the new sale. It's supposed to be, like, the ultimate co-op game, right? Maybe if somebody moves to somewhere within a couple thousand kilometres of India we could get a game going someday.
