Bah, was just coming to post the new bundle information. I already own Limbo and Bastion and recommend them both. The current average price is $7.38, so if you want Bastion, that's what you have to beat. Honestly, if I didn't already have two of the games, I'd jump on this in a second.

When you purchase it, you get the Bastion Steam key separately from the "Bundle" Steam key (Amnesia, Psychonauts, etc). So if you already own Bastion, you could always pass the code along to a friend. I suppose this may not be the intent but then I figure if you're buying a whole bundle you should be entitled to a copy of everything in it whether you already own it or not.

If you're adverse to Steam, you can always download each game as a separate executable instead and run them individually.

And here's the promo video voiced by the Bastion narrator

In case anyone missed the sale on Amazon, Saints Row 3 is $17 on Steam. If you by the Season Pass for $7 (normally $20) you get all 3 of the current side story DLC. Also Quantum Conundrum is available for preorder for $13.50, it's by the creator of the original Portal. Gameplay demo video is below.

GamersGate is having an Assassins Creed sale. $7.49 each for Brotherhood & AC2, $29.99 for Revelations. $4.99 for AC:R DLC. The first game is also $7.49 but that usually goes on sale cheaper.

Far Cry 1 & 2 are bundled together for $5 as the Steam daily. Hard not to get five bucks worth of enjoyment out of them if you have any interest at all in the whole FPS thing.

Here is me on Farcry 1 after I bought them both on steam sale last year:

Find first camp. Shoot some dudes. Holy crap I take a lot of damage. Struggle, make a check point. Get a car with a gun, shoot lots of stuff on road. Trying to find next checkpoint. BOAT OF ETERNAL ROCKETS! Seriously this boat shoots rockets non stop at you from the water and kills you over and over. I waited behind a hill trying to think of something to do to deal with the thing. 50 rockets hit the hill trying to kill me in non stop succession.

Ok so I take "realistic" damage from guns and am basically wtfgibbed by one bullet but these guy's in the inflatible have managed to fit 1000's of rockets in a 5-10' Raft?

Quit.

I used a nearby hill as cover while I crouched down and picked off the two guys on the boat using the gun's ironsight.

Yeah I think I pulled that off once then died a little up and since the game has check points, got sent back and just said F it. I always meant to go back and play it again or fire up FC 2 but the list of games that meet those conditions in my library is already really long.

Far Cry 2 is a pretty different game. Whether that's good or bad depends a lot on how enamored you were with FC1.

Braid, Super Meat Boy & Lone Survivor were added to the Humble Bundle.

I really liked Braid's concept except then I got stuck on a level and haven't gone back. Never played SMB but only hear that it's hella-hard. Never heard of Lone Survivor.

Those of us that already bought the bundle can go back in and get the new games as well.

Hurray for value!

Already have Braid and Super Meat Boy from earlier bundles, but I'll take Lone Survivor without complaints. Apparently Notch (of Minecraft) and someone calling themselves HumbleBronyBundle are in a competition to see who can spend the most money on this bundle. Currently Notch is winning at $9999.99. When I checked last week they were still both around the 3000 range.

GMG has Tropico 3 Gold Edition for $3.73 in case you feel like ruling over a Caribbean island on a budget.

Amazon has Risen for $5.99

Slow times but Steam summer sale is coming up fast. And probably an associated Amazon sale.

Their sale price is 25% off of $29.99, listed as $26.99. Not sure if they're that stupid, or they're hoping people will blindly look at the 25% off tag and not the price.

If it is only 10% off, Steam has the same sale.


Nevermind, their discount system seems to be hanging a bit. Make sure you're getting the 25% before you go to buy.

That and their "advertised" price is 10% off with the code actually giving an additional 15% for 25% total. Sort of a confusing way to do it but, hey, I'm just the messenger.

You could assume the worst and that they're hoping people will buy it without entering the code (and just get 10%) but they have the code in big letters on the item page so... don't ask me.

Interestingly, PSN threw a bunch of full games up at no add'l charge for PS+ users. Infamous 2, LBP 2, Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light, Virtua Fighter 5, and a few others.

Looks like I'm totally set on games for the next few weeks. Pretty cool.

I am actually tempted to buy that CIV 5 expansion, since I've played the game 3 times now.
