Check PMs.

That is one awesome bundle. I have all the games but threw $15 down and put 100% of it to THQ. Hope they don't fold because I like all of their games really. I gave the bundle to a friend of mine and will enjoy the soundtracks for myself.

Without saying too much, it's the first gaming title based on a TV/Movie/etc that I'm genuinely excited for (probably biased since I work here ).

Bought Chivalry during the Thanksgiving Sale.

It is a pretty fun game.

Even though it's trying to be realistic, I would love if they added wizards.

up 38% now lol

Crazy to think a year ago... 52 Week High /Low: $ 18.60 / $ 1

For some reason Konami went up a lot today too, a big announcement i missed maybe
The craziest part is that THQ had to do a reverse stock split already this year. Basically they combined 10 shares to make 1. They went from nearly 70 million shares to just under 7 million, which made their stocks worth almost $6. They've already dropped back down to the point where they could almost be delisted (below $1).

Their stock has fallen down again today unfortunately. They opened at $1.69 but are sitting at $1.37 now.

MAKE THE MOST OF IT:

If you buy any one of those games listed above, you'll receive a 35% off voucher. You could use that voucher on one of the games above*, and get another voucher. Rinse and repeat til you've cleaned up! How's that for a slice of fried gold?

A good kick-off point (for those outside of the UK, sorry mates, can't sell it there yet!) is BioShock Infinite, as vouchers aren't valid on this title, but you'll still receive one if you order it. If you order it now and choose cashback you'll receive your reward as fast as your bank can process (credit wouldn't go to your account until the game releases). Then use that cashback and your 35% voucher on another pre-purchase game so you get another 35% voucher!

That's like basically 35% off every game you'll want to play next year!

An important note, each voucher you get is single-use, and tied to your account, so make sure you're logged in, and when you use it, you mean it!

Eh, I'll pick it up knowing it's short mainly because I've heard good things about how the storyline is actually interesting unlike every other modern warfare FPS campaign out there.

It's not.

Trust me that kind of argument is only when compared to the amount of **** people been accustomed to in the past years

10 years ago that story would have been considered absolute garbage

like myself, i'd much rather have Steam keys ....basically its 'no Steam = no sale' at this point. tho i have made the small exception of using Origin as well ...but that's it.

not interested in having my games strewn all over various sites and clients.

Am I better off playing Darksiders with a mouse and keyboard or a controller?

i honestly prefer keyboard and mouse

Much like Batman and most games in third person where the action is all around you the speed at which you can move the camera is really important, so mouse

All the previous bundles made just as much more or less. Sales seem to be driven by the games themselves more than anything. The biggest selling "indie" bundles all had non indie mainstream titles in them.

The new Tomb Raider looks amazing, IMO.

Go with preference.

Everyone tells me to use a keyboard and mouse for pretty much every game - but it's impossible for some games. It's your decision really.

Trying playing Rugby with the keyboard and mouse. I would own anyone using a controller.

Yes, it's cheap enough that I think a lot of people here can buy it. It's a ton of fun and reminds me of Super Meat Boy in a way. It's really hard but you have to keep playing to beat your best. I played for about an hour straight last night and had to stop because it hurt my eyes. You really do have to focus hard on the game so you'll probably only be blinking about a third as often as you usually do. Not to mention all the spinning, zooming in and out, and color changes you have to look at while focusing on what you're doing!

It really is a ton of fun though and a leaderboard with more of us would make it quite a bit more fun I think.

I personally didn't even try it on keyboard just because I thought there'd be too many keys to configure and I wouldn't like what I ended up doing. I like it with my 360 pad but I honestly never gave it a chance on keyboard/mouse.
