    I won't pass up an opportunity to recommend Knock-Knock to anyone with a taste for slightly unconventional horror. Get it.

    I'm tempted to buy the bundle myself too given that I have the impression Vessel is a very worthwhile puzzle platformer, and I know that Viscera Cleanup Detail is more fun than a physics-based cleaning simulator has any right to be, even though this is just a themed standalone level.

    As for the rest, I know Divekick to be an ultra-simplified fighting game full of references to the fighting game community, I know Fortresscraft to be a Minecraft clone of limited notoriety, and have practically no knowledge of the rest. Anyone else care to weigh in on this bundle?

    Groupees Jonny's Jams preorder: 6 games (4 Steam + 2 Greenlight) and 1 mystery game. Dustoff Heli Rescue has been suggested.

    @LTK:

    Definitely seconding the Knock-Knock recommendation (even if you don't like horror much, as yours truly, still brilliant). Vessel has an interesting steampunk premise with cool fluid-based mechanics, however I never managed to get past the 6-7h mark because of a mix of glitchiness and difficulty. The OST by Jon Hopkins is ace though.

    NaissanceE looked interesting, unfortunately RPS only covered it up to about release and a WIT never followed which is usually not the best of signs.

    Return NULL looks like some sort of low-budget episodic adventure game I know nothing about, Rooks Keep claims to be an arena multiplayer melee-combat whatever made by the same studio as VCD, and from the announcements, it looks like it's going to be dead soon if it isn't already.

    Qbeh-1 looks like the most interesting among the ones I don't know much about.

    NaissanceE is excellent; it's one of the few first person explorer/puzzlebox/walking sim games to understand the importance of movement. Some of the platforming is bastard-hard, but I think it's worth it. Here's the Electron Dance article about it.

    Checking that link I realized they did publish a WIT, it's missing the final E and tagged accordingly, so my search didn't turn it up:

    Groupees have a new visual novel bundle up, but it's, uh, not the best. Go! Go! Nippon and Nicole at the $1 mark, and two more tiers at $4 and $10 with Aselia the Eternal and one more, then two more of three porn VNs through Mangagamer - none of which I've heard of even as an example of "Yeah, there's lots of sex, but the story's awesome, honest!".

    Haha, sorry if that inadvertently alarmed you. I have played VNs with sex scenes that contextualised them fairly well and told a decent story into the bargain, but... I've played absolutely dreadful ones, too, and I see absolutely nothing there to make me think any of those three would be worth ten bucks in any sense. Thanks, Groupees, but no thanks.

    Aselia The Eternal is all ages and pretty good.The gameplay is nice (yes, this one actually has gameplay, look up some youtube videos.It's kind of an strategy game, the closest thing that I can think of that is similar would be Fire Emblem but it's not really a good comparison.), although it gets repetitive after a while, taking it along with Demonbane for 4$ is a pretty good deal.

    Demonbane is more of an..."extremely japanese" thing with giant robots, villains and all that stuff.I don't think I ever finished that one but from what I remember there weren't many 18+ scenes.

    Edelweiss is about a teen moving to some school in an island with friends and hilarity ensues.There's a little bit more of backstory there but it's basically about a boy and his friends and their highschool lives with girls.

    The one with the nurse is all about the H-content though so unless you're into that just avoid it.

    I'm a fan of Visual Novels, and I'd recommend people to get the 4$ for Aselia, since it's pretty nice and you get DemonBane as a Bonus, and even if you're avoiding 18+ content like the plague it's still worth it.

    10$ for Edelweiss feels kinda expensive but then again you'll be taking Aselia and Demonbane with it so it's worth it if you like the whole "comedy / teen life / highschool" theme.Although then again, if you're avoiding 18+ content at all costs you should probably stay at 4$.

    Go!Go!Nippon is kind of an "introduction to japan" thing so I wouldn't waste much time on it personally but maybe it's nice.Never read Nicole before though, it might be good but I have no idea, never heard anything about it either.

    On another note, JAST USA has been working for years on Aselia's sequel (Seinarukana) and probably won't be finished for another 10 years or so cause they're like that, just a fair warning =3

    That Humble weekly is an odd duck. It has DoW1 but does not appear to include any of the DoW1 expansions, which is a pity because a Steam copy of Dark Crusade would easily be worth a buck to me. It has DoW2 at PWYW and DoW2 Retribution at the BTA tier, but does not include the Chaos Rising expansion which is superior to both.

    I'm unsure what's included in the Company of Heroes Complete package (is that actually everything CoH1?), and I know nothing about the CoH2 stuff. Helio?

    If I didn't own everything else there, I would be tempted to go for it just for company of Heroes 2, as I really enjoyed the first title... but I can't justify the money right now for the one game.

The gameplay was just bog-standard stats-raising with nothing to set it apart whatsoever. Absolute crap, and charging $20 or so just beggars belief (thankfully I got it in a bundle).

    I like visual novels in theory, and I have no problem with cartoon sex, whether as titillation or part of the storyline - at least, in theory - but I've played a few of them over the years where people have said "There's a lot more to them than just porn! No, seriously!" and in my opinion no, there wasn't. Even of the ones I liked I still wouldn't say any of them were truly great. I've tried a few demos of late for the ones on Steam (fault milestone one, If My Heart Had Wings etc.) and they've mostly been dire. The vast majority of them stick to the same soap opera plotting and the same meat market lineup of reductive, problematic stereotypes, and from everything I've read too many of the people who're really into them react like GamerGaters only more timidly when you suggest there might be something wrong with that. So I really am open to suggestions, but I'm also highly cynical of ever finding something that'll really impress me. Maybe I'm wrong, but that bundle doesn't seem as if it's about to buck the trend.

    But but
    Morishima walked in, and found Yumi vigorously performing fellatio on the patient.

    She was doing everything she could to satisfy him, to spare the hospital from a lawsuit.

    Morishima snickered to herself. And from then on, she started tampering with Yumi’s charts.
    It clearly a commentary on the fact that in America, malpractice suits are just insane, and that Gray's Anatomy (AKA ER, but with sex on closets) was a documentary. Just because it's set in Japan with Japanese people, doesn't mean it's not about the US of A.
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Flickr, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?
