Garry's Mod
Dead Island
Defense Grid
Fable: TLC
Trine 2
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands
Shoot Many Robots
Two Worlds 2 DLC

$53.56 for 15 items, so average is 3.83 for each. Considering Arma 2 was $18, that threw the average up a bit. ;)

Are you are really going to play all those games?

Nothing, my Steam library is already way too big, thanks to those humble indie bundles.

Same here... I was tempted to buy, but didn't.
I have an Amazon credit card, so I get regular (free) gift-cards whenever I buy stuff with my CC. So, that's free money that I use towards anything on amazon... especially digital downloads. Plus, any coins that I have, I take it to a CoinStar machine and exchange for amazon gift-cards as well.

Eventually. Between my laptop during slow days at the office and the times that I'm at home and everyone else is doing somthing else, I should be good. Now, if you're asking if I'm going to FINISH all of the games, not too likely. I play to have fun, socialize with my friends, and decompress. Not to pass a bar set by a dev that says when I should be done with a game.

Edit: Wow, I just tried to figure out how long my added games would take for me to finish. Just, wow. Yup, not gonna finish all of them.

Yep, same here.

Also, I'm approaching that turning point where sticking to PC and my old platforms come next gen seems the sensible thing to do. Just turned 35 and i have a few hobbies to tend to besides adding more gaming platforms and proprietary console expenditures under my belt. My kids are pretty active and are showing no desire for the couch play either despite having it, they just gravitate totheir portables... so no i'm not gonna force them or invest into more multiple boxes to compete for attention in my living room. At least, i'd like to have the will power not to :P

These sales let me stock up on enough material, at a such a low cost, so that when boredom strikes i always have something new to try.

Besides, on PC everything looks next gen :D

$28.25 total.

I've noticed that Dear Esther is showing up a couple of times and starting to think that I missed out. I saw the trailer, and it just seemed like some digital story without any gameplay. Was I wrong to pass it up?

Posted on Jul 22, 2012 12:57:27 PM PDT
I just started getting into pc gaming most of what I got were AAA titles
Batman Arkham city
Dead space 1 and 2
Portal 2
Need for speed hot pursuit
Burnout ultimate box
Saints row the third
Just cause 2
Deus ex
Bastion (wow 10 minutes in and I'm loving it)

Can anyone recommend a program so I can use my Xbox controller for all games not just skyrim batman etc? I'd like to use if for bastion.

FV says:
Alan Wake + American Nightmare
Splinter Cell Collection (been eyeing that for years now)
NFS: Hot Pursuit (This was an impulse buy. I could have done without this)
GTA Episodes From Liberty City

Total: $36.95

I honestly purchased too much this sale. If I could do it over again, I think I only would have gotten Alan Wake.

Well, if you skipped it because it looked like just a digital story without much gameplay, then you probably made the right choice since that's essentially what it is. I haven't tried it yet, but from what I've heard and read, most of the interactivity is in just walking around from location to location listening to a narrator as you go along. Sounds quite intriguing to me, but I can see how it'd turn others off.

No program needed. If it's wired, windows will automatically detect the drivers for the controller. Then it's a matter of changing the in game settings from M&K to Controller. Bastion readily supports the 360 controller. If you have a wireless controller, you are going to need to pick up an adapter.

You can make an account on and add all your back logged games and it will tell you how many hundreds of hours it will take to beat them all. I started cataloging mine, but there are so many, I need a special website to estimate how long it would take to simply catalog all my backlog games.

Quantity wise, that looks a lot like my list, if you listed the indie bundles as one game per bundle.
Impressive haul.
