Check it out! lots of indie and oldschool games of many genres come together for an indie bundle sale!

Games included:

Black Market - Space sim SORTA similar to freelancer. sort of.

Cardinal Quest - Rougelike with oldschool 8 bit styled graphics.

The Devils Whiskey - RPG homage to a bards tale (Absolutely LOVE this one! Played it YEARS AGO)

Kenshi (In alpha) - It's sort of like a mix of mount and blades overview map, and jagged alliance/brigade E5/6.

Steel Storm: Burning Retribution - Top down sci-fi shooter with comic cell shaded graphics.

Wanderlust: Rebirth - 4 player coop action RPG with 16-bit graphics. Nuff said.

LINK:
Gamersgate.com

Currently $6 USD minimum, but make sure to throw in a bit extra for the hard working devs! ;D

Happy Gaming!

Is it just me or is crytek 3 far worse then crytek 2?

Why couldn't they just optimize it instead of butchering the features to allow it to run on consoles? The xbox version has bad overlay on particles, flickering shadows, and bad alpha channel AA, while the PS3 version had none of those problems, yet it still looked far below what they could have had.

Although I do like all the source fanboys defending it as an engine even though none of them have ever USED the full engine. Only 2 games I can think of off the top of my head have been developed third party on source, that valve had nothing to do with and that weren't a mod beforehand. If there were more then just a few high quality sourcemods I might have more sympathy for them :P.

shut up you. they did it because they want money and they cant make any on people who just pirates their games anyways.

sure you can also do it with consoles, but PC is far more easier to pirate.

Ruining what had potential for money doesn't sound right to me. I think there is more to it then that. They easily would have had the sales for PC, if they kept the benchmark trend. PC nuts love benchmark, regardless of if they will actually PLAY the game.

well i think that's silly. to spend all that work and time just making a game that will ultimately be used for benchmarking. if that was the case, wouldn't people just download the demo and never actually purchase the game?

graphics alone doesn't make a game. So hopefully they will spend their time honing the story and gameplay mechanics than how overly detailed they can get on a tree.

Actually post processing was what they were going for ;D

Whats the problem with benchmarking? A LOT of people think graphics makes a good game, which is why a terrible game like crysis did so well. The demo doesn't even allow the same graphic settings as the full version, and the full version receives patches to further them.

There are other benchmark games that get decent sales like Shattered Horizon, which has great graphics with simple but addictive gameplay.

I got birthday emails from like 15 sites, and only 2 of them were actually hand crafted. The rest were the EXACT same in EVERY SINGLE WAY, except they swapped out one name for another. This is what all of them did and it makes me sad:

From: (Insert website name)
Subject: Happy birthday from (Insert website name)

Hello AlCool,

We at (Insert website name) would like to wish you a happy birthday today!

When I get that exact same email that many times, I wonder where everyone downloaded their website starter kits from :P. Also I like how they say "today" just incase, and even though most of them sent the email the day before by 3+ hours.

Hey man, Happy B-day ! Hope you enjoy it.

Yeah, your right. It has been a little quiet around here. Must be spring fever. It went from 30 this am to over 70 this afternoon where I'm at and everyone's busy getting outside ( or being forced outside ) to burn off some energy. Lifts the spirits !
