    I dont think you actually get Katamari Damacy, Hotline Miami or Kentucky Route Zero. It is just games from people who made those.

    I could never get into X: Beyond the Frontier nor X: Tension but the rest of them are awesome. X2 is great because you can literally fly into stations to dock. It also has M0 class ships (the biggest in the game). X3: Reunion probably has the best plot and you're really mad, you can unlock the Hyperion Vanguard which, IMO, is the best cruiser-size ship. It's much harder to get in Terran Conflict and Albion Prelude. Terran Conflict moved from one major story mission to several mission chains. It's fun but not very plot driven. Albion Prelude has very little plot but they added lots of ships and expanded Albion space. Personally, I'd try to play the plot elements in all the games then really go all out in Albion Prelude (set up a corporation, buy capital ships, etc.).

    There's hundreds of hours worth of gameplay in that pack so you really can't go wrong unless you really don't like space flight sims.

    Word of advice: use bore sights for targeting especially in the X3 games. I used the other option for the longest time and recently discovered I was doing it wrong. XD


    Edit: The only thing I don't like is they are all single-threaded. Prepare for a lagfest in large battles.

    You could always have an american comrade buy the game for you. Lots of people do that for aussies because for some reason their prices are way high and they have strict content rules

    Missed this yesterday somehow. Excellent series, and looking forward to the new one coming out this year. Very complex, and not the easiest to get into, but if Space Sims are your thing, and you don't mind a little less "sandbox" than say.. Freelancer, this is a good series.

    It's interesting. I bought it when it was on sale last weekend on Steam since I had 4.99 in my wallet. It's a rather simple concept in a way, but also complex. It's pretty fun, there's just something about small indie games that I can't get into.

    I did 100% achievements on it in 11 hours (beat it twice). I used internet guides on some of the puzzles so it could have been much longer and frustrating.

    All of the games in the HIB9 are great.


    Many Origin action games up to 50% off:

    I have a chance to win the Indie Bundle 9 in the WCG CEP2 Warm Up Challenge.
    If I don't, I am gonna get it on my own. Two reasons. 1, I am solely on an i5 laptop w/ HD4000.
    2. I REALLY, REALLY, don't have the time to play something too involved. Christ, Gratuitous Space Battle needs for me to be able to check out for two plus hours. I rarely have that kinda time.

    Yet another reason? I want FEZ. Even if it sucks, I have to see what took dude half his life to get done, figuratively.

    Yet another reason? If I don't get into a game, I can give the key to a prize giveaway on TPU's WCG challenges.

    OK, enough out of me, already! :rockout:

    Amazon has the "Metro Franchise Pack" for $20, which includes Metro 2033, Metro Last Light. Metro LL Ranger Mode DLC, and Metro LL RPK DLC DLC.
    The Metro games are awesome IMO :toast:

    I think I finally found where Bioware Points (Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and Dragon Age 2 DLCs) may eventually go on sale. There isn't a sale now but the more people watching the stuff on this page the better:
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C7B0GB8/?tag=tec06d-20

    800 points = $10 USD at normal price

    Attempted to buy just the Last Light code on Amazon- rejected multiple times. Lets me buy physical items without a problem. No chat option available for digital purchases either. SOL, I guess
