    A discount on a Blizzard game?
    Are my eyes deceiving me? Someone pinch me, surely you jest?!
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    Got this e-mail today:

    "Felt mislead" is certainly putting it tenderly. I mean, it was obviously too good to be true, but you can't just throw around the word "lifetime" like that.

    GamersGate have started their holiday sale proper it seems. Lots of deals plus the overarching "Buy 4, pay for 3" deal. I'm sure someone else can cover this better.

    Humble THQ Bundle is live:

    "Starting at just one dollar, pay what you want and get Steam keys for Company of Heroes (and its two full-game expansions, Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor), Darksiders, Metro 2033, and Red Faction: Armageddon! If you choose to pay more than the average price, you will also get the phenomenal Saints Row: The Third! And several of the games come with glorious soundtracks!"

    Looking at this bundle almost makes me wish for more publishers getting into financial trouble.

    There's a BIT of a honey-trap aspect to it - they're clearly hoping people will but into the shedload of DLC there is for SR3 - and CoH2 - the next Metro 2033 title - and Darksiders2 with it's army of DLCs - and RFA's Path to War DLC and...

    Still an amazing deal tho - but Humble Bundles sell stupid quantities at the best of times. The Android Bundles have sold staggering amounts despite largely containing games which are moody about which devices they work on and not always ideal mobile titles anyway (maybe people are really buying those for the PC versions eh?) :)

    Its not a honey trap, a honey trap is where the honey isn't worth the trapage, this is more like a cheap honey trial, i wont be spending anything on saints row DLC outside of some insane-o-deal and getting the prequel cheap when a sequel is coming is good business and great for the customer.

    And the honey is some of the best in its field... I've forgotten where I was taking this metaphor.

    You're a bee? Or a bear, perhaps. And THQ is the beekeeper... no, that would make the devs the bees. OK, the devs are bees and THQ is the beekeeper, and you're the honey-hungry bear, but no, that would mean that THQ would try to prevent you from getting to the games (which are the honey, of course), and this is the other way around, so ehhh... You are the connoisseur of fine honeys, and pirates are the bears! And you take a spoonful of the well-crafted game and put in your cup of tea.

    But the honey is infinitely reproducible without cost?
    and the beekeeper spent all of his money trying to make fly honey, but it was shit.

    Depends. Are we talking about bear-children or bee-children?

    Children can't have honey, they'll get it on the new couch.

    Is there some correlation between pirates or developers and shareholders? I'm thinking fly children. Shareholders eating the rotting carcass of the beekeeper (thq) who was mauled by the bear (of piracy), but only died because of the infection left by the flys turds (wii drawing game).

    Just in case anyone doesn't read the Flare Path, the Strategy First thanksgiving bundle is amazing value. I'd pay the $5 for the Achtung Panzer DLC alone.

    What is Strategy First's website's policy? I vaguely recall them being one of the people who push for "extended download services".
    Steam: Gundato
    PSN: Gundato
    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    Especially considering the time of year, it might be simpler to have a thread for those games that aren't on sale.
