New humble bundle!

Its a bit smaller but the two Shadowgrounds games are ace, you get Trine as well, and a pre-order for another game.

Good times, no DRM crap, and you get both the mac, linux and windows versions.

As with the previous bundles, you pay whatever you want. So if you are a typical windows gamer, you can actually buy a game rather than pirating it :D

I'm all over this bundle.  I bought the previous two humble bundles as well, and while I don't play all the games they've included, I have really enjoyed a handful of them.  Also, since a portion of the money goes to charity, I get a nice warm and fuzzy feeling in my heart.  I've heard lots of good things about Trine, so I'm looking forward to finally trying it for myself.

I paid well for the last 2 and will be buying this one as well.  I love that the last one, while the linux shares were overtaken by the wintendos, the average price paid by linux users held almost double what the wintendo ppl were paying :D

Yeah, the average price that the Windows users were paying was utterly ridiculous.  I'm on a fixed income, and I still paid well more than the average Windows user did.

And Runequester, I too have a soft spot for Child's Play.  The guys from Penny Arcade are nearly saints in my opinion for getting it setup and running like they have.

So I had dug the hell out of the Shadowgrounds demo. ANd now I've been playing it two nights in a row for several hours :)

Couldn't find an easy way to play with a gamepad though. You can remap all the keys but apparently not the mouse aim. Too bad, I'd love to play it without being hunched over my keyboard

Thanx for the heads up..
I missed the last ones..
I did get one of the previous bundle games seperately, but I didn't know there was a bundle at the time. ;-)  oopps..

Looks like some good stuff again..

OK, home, paid and DLing now..
Also interesting, they have a "key" for playing the game with OnLive.  (Well, Trine anyway)..
I've been poking at OnLive a bit..  Interesting technology...  Impressive how well it works considering what it's doing..  Of course, it's a bandwidth hog..

I was "dissed" on OnLive tho already..
Testing it out with Unreal Tournament, and I was using the laptop, so the touchpad and cursor keys were really tough to work with (and I'm not an FPS guy really).
All of a sudden, I think I hear something in French..  I'm thinking is a setting in the wrong language???
Then I'm trying to shoot a door open, and missing the shot (hands across each other trying to aim.. (I have a mouse hooked up now) it was bad..) and I hear this French sounding voice chanting "Newbie..  Newbie.. Newbie.."
I realize..  DAMNIT..  Someone is watching me play and taunting me..
In FRENCH no less!!!
I felt like King Arthur with his empty halves of coconuts..  :-)  :-)
I disabled that feature..
Oh, Trine is done DLing (That was fast)..  On to the next game..

Anyway, the bummer about OnLive for me is that it would be an awesome way to allow Linux users to play these games, many of which have no Linux versions.
But, of course, no Linux client yet...

Oh well, off to more DLs..

Trine looks really slick, though I think my video card is a bit garbage :)

Managed to power through both Shadowgrounds games, between the last 2 nights, and today (had the day off from work).

THe coop mode looks intriguing..

Downloads are just about done (not bothering with Mac versions)
Looking at some youtube clips of Shadowgrounds..  Nice..
Has a real Alien Breed (NOT 3D) feel to it..  Looks like fun.

I purchased this the other day. Thankfully work has a nice fat connection so I downloaded it to my laptop so I can take it home.

I also bought the first two as well. I like it because I can play them on my Linux box but also on either Windows or Mac if needed since one purchase allows you to use it on all three OS's. Also, some of the previous games in the Humble Bundles have been ported to the Amiga so I have the data files to play some of the games on my Sam440 as well :)
