    Machinarium is the only one I have. While Lume and Botanicula seem interesting, the rest don't. I think I'll sit this one out.

    I have none of these, but I'm currently uncertain over this. I think I'll probably wait for the main Humble sale before making a move.

    When you won't pay $1 for the games, you know it's getting bad.

    Machinarium is worth $6 alone.

    So... either you don't give cares about great Adventure games. Or you are seriously cheap.

    No, Machinarium is pretty bland. It's not challenging, it's not engaging, it's literally babies first adventure game. There are much better adventures games on Steam for $6 or less.

    For those who purchased MANOS: The Hands of Fate in the weekly sale a few weeks ago, it's just been greenlit on Steam and the creator said that bundle owners will all be getting a Steam code credited to them within the day.

    The new Humble Bundle is worth $1 for Runner 2 alone. I didn't like Retro City Rampage, boring to me, but one good thing that came out of it was that at the arcade, there was a Runner mini game that got me interested in the Runner games, one of which I already had from a previous Humble Bundle.

    $1

    To the Moon
    Joe Danger 2: The Movie
    Papo & Yo
    Bit.Trip Runner 2

    $Average

    Reus
    Surgeon Simulator 2013

    The two games most people seem to be losing it over is To The Moon and Surgeon Simulator. The later doesn't interest me much and the former.....I don't know, I'm generally not that interested in art games, but this is supposedly good for reasons beyond "the feels".

    Have all the games in this weeks sale already, but still a good bundle.

    For $1+:
    Shadowgrounds + OST
    Trine + OST
    Jack Claw

    For $6+:

    Shadowgrounds: Survivor + OST
    Trine 2: Complete Story + 2 OSTs

    Jack Claw is what interests me. This was given away in a previous bundle a year or two ago. It was a beta then and is a beta now. I'm wondering if they are ever going to get around to finishing it and if we'll be getting Steam codes when that happens.

    Is Shadowgrounds as good as it looks in the trailer? Not sure about the 7.4 Metacritic score or 7.1 user score when almost nothing now days scores below a 7/10. It's really the only game I'm interested in on this bundle.

    I've had it for a while and never bothered to install it. From what I've read, it's a decent game with bad voice acting.

    I went ahead and snagged the Humble Bundle X today. I almost picked up Toki Tori and Reus on the Steam Winter Sale but held off. Now I'm glad I did.

    They added new games to Humble Bundle 10. Paying the average looks much more appealing.

    Strike Suit Zero, Hoard, and Toki Tori 2+.

    I'm still not quite convinced. I never much cared for space combat, and I didn't really like the first Toki Tori enough to see it through to the end.

    Then again, apparently Toki Tori 2+ is a substantial improvement on the first.

    Machinarium wasn't too bad, until I realized the engine was Adobe Flash. I regularly run CCleaner to clear out the junk files on my PC, after I do this I notice my save file is gone. If I accidentally right click while in game, up pops a Flash menu which takes you right out of the immersion. After that it felt like those free Flash games various sites have posted.

    To The Moon, while an "interactive story" that didn't have a lot of game substance, REALLY pulled at my heart strings. One night I played from 11 PM on a Friday until 6 AM Saturday to finish it. My eyes were like Niagara Falls and I'm man enough to admit it.

    Strike Suit Zero looks very appealing. I know I have games in my backlog which will have to stay that that way until I fix my PC. I have to use a table fan to cool it as some chips must be starting to go bad and are getting really hot.

    Strike Suit Zero has been described to me as a fluid combination of Zone of the Enders and Omega Boost. Take that for what you will.

    This weeks sale is a mixed bag.

    For $1+:
    Arma II
    Take On Helicopters
    UFO: Afterlight
    Alpha Prime
    ARMA: Gold Edition
    ARMA Tactics

    For $6+:
    Carrier Commander: Gaea Mission
    Arma II: Operation Arrowhead
    Arma II: DayZ Mod

    Toki Tori was a better game on GBC IMO. Felt much more advanced for the system, and can easily be mistaken for a GBA game. The remake is still a good game, but I don't like some of the stylistic changes they made.

    I'm liking this weeks sale.

    For $1+:
    Paranautical Activity (Early Access Game) + OST
    Dungeons of Dreadmore Complete + OST
    Hack, Slash, Loot + OST

    For $6+:
    The Binding of Issac + Wrath of the Lamb DLC
    Teleglitch: Die More Edition + OST
    Sword of the Stars: The Pit - Gold Edition

    Paranautical is shaping up to be something special. Dungeons of Dreadmore is worth it, it's a fun game and pretty easy from a rougelike standpoint. Hack, Slash, Loot isn't really worth it, sadly, as it's less based heavily on RNG and not gameplay. The Binding of Issac isn't my bag, but still a good game in it's own right. Never played Teleglitch or The Pit, but I've seen them in action. Worth it.

    I'll take an extra key for Paranautical Activity if someone wants to give it up. Otherwise I think I'll pass; I still don't care for FPS games generally, and I have all the other games. (Picked up Sword of the Stars Gold for ~$3 over Christmas.)

    The Binding of Isaac was an incredible experience, and I look forward to the upcoming remake.

    For $1+:
    Overlord
    Overlord: Rising Hell DLC
    Operation Flashpoint: Red River
    Operation Flashpoint: Rising Dragon
    Rise of the Argonauts + OST

    For $6+:
    DiRT Showdown
    DiRT 3
    Overlord II

    I recall seeing Overlord in action when it was new. Seemed fun and full of character, but was bogged down by bad controls.

    Two of those games (Dirt 3 and one of the Flashpoints) use GFWL. Codemasters hasn't said whether or not they'll remove that crap before it shuts down.

    There's a good chance Dirt 3 will have it removed since there's a new version of the game on Steam's internal database. But Operation Flashpoint? Who knows. Codemasters has a nasty habit of letting games and licenses die out and not giving a fuck, so buyer beware.

    I have the Overlord games and Rise of the Argonauts for 360 so consequently I won't be buying this week's bundle but to anyine on the fence I whole heartedly recommend jumping in. ROA is a greek mythology themed action RPG, and a sleeper favorite of mine. Its pretty short but entertaining. And the Overlord games are hilarious.

    Really? I can only recall hearing rather grim things about the Overlord games. But I'll take your word for it; we're only talking a buck here.

    I hadn't noticed this until now, but apparently they replaced the old "enter how much you want to pay" field with a twitchy slider bar.
