    Ironic because how can you collect something you technically can't own.

    Most of the games I bought, I beat either now or in the past.

    Humble Indie Bundle 6 includes Torchlight I, Vessel, Shatter, S.P.A.Z., Rochard, (and Dustforce, as long as you cover the average, currently at $5.25) for however much you wanna pay :p

    All are DRM free, and if you go that way, they'll even activate on steam-crap as long as you pay more than $1.

    I went ahead and bit, mainly for Rochard, which I missed the other day on Steam.

    Just as a heads up, when you buy these games, it's one Steam key for all the main games (Vessel, Torchlight, Rochard, SPAZ, and Shatter), and one Steam key for Dustforce if you buy over the average.
    Darkleoco and theonedub say thanks.

    Gonna grab that when I get home, barely played the PS3 version honestly...I'm assuming there is no way to get it on Steam for that price?

    Word of advice on BF3: make sure to run a thorough set of test to make sure Punkbuster works. Running the punkbuster testing application is not enough.

    I bought this for $40 2 weeks ago, and apparently my ISP has a configuration that does not agree with punkbuster. I have not tried singleplayer, but I assume that works, not that I could care less.

    The game does work whenever I play it over my cell connection, but with 110ms ping, and limited bandwidth, it really is not feasible.

    Please not that EVERY other game works on this connection, but not punkbuster games.

    Had to contact customer support post purchase which took a little effort- definitely not as easy as buying gifts on Steam.

    The current Humble Bundle has some really fun titles in it: https://www.humblebundle.com/

    I already owned a few of them, but Dust force alone is $10 on steam and Vessel is $15 on steam as of right now. So with those two alone, meeting the $5.78 minimum is a steal. The rest of the games come as a bonus if you don't already own them. Plus you get to download their soundtracks in either FLAC or MP3 formats.

    This game is always on sale.
    Ends up with adding a few hundred more views on the bad performance with ATi thread in the steam forums.

    I personally found this game runs fine on XP in DX9 but runs like a dog on DX9 windows 7 with AMD cards and with DX10/11 it will run constant low fps.
    Apparently doesn't matter what tier of AMD card you have too.
