I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
On another topic, on my previous post about the BiaB I mentioned voting for Indie Dev Grant and I got some people asking me about where they can vote, that they can't find it anywhere. You can find the candidates like ours for Indie Dev Grant at the bottom of the page that you get your keys after purchasing the bundle.
Amongst the contenders our next release 99 Spirits can do with all your voting help.
it's also available for free from the developer (who'd probably appreciate direct donations more than the pennies-a-copy they'll get from the bundle).
A brief description of a false country, updated sporadically.
Humble added Titan Quest and the Red Faction: Armageddon DLC to the THQ bundle
(ETA: for those who paid above the average).
The DLC surprises me a bit. I thought they were hoping people would buy it after getting the main game from the bundle.

Thanks, updated. I guess with the metric tonne of DLCs SRTT has, they're counting on that to drive sales mainly?
Also, note how it is Titan Quest without the expansion. And I think Titan Quest is probably one of their bestselling games in terms of the lifetime of it (everyone and their mother has at least one copy. I have 3 :p).
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.
And hey! Gamersgate has the TQ expansion for sale today.
And hey! It isn't the Steam version.
Well played, THQ .....
I was actually going to see what the DLC would cost in the Christmas sale, but I guess I won't have to now.
hehe. I have it too, and the expansion, but only one of each, at least.Also, note how it is Titan Quest without the expansion. And I think Titan Quest is probably one of their bestselling games in terms of the lifetime of it (everyone and their mother has at least one copy. I have 3 :p).
yeah, maybe they're hoping for TQ expansion sales, Saints Row 3 DLC sales like alms said, and perhaps a few Darksiders II sales too by those who enjoyed the first game.
I was hoping for Space Marine, but that would have been over the top. In other news, Steam has started downloading christmas achievements I believe. Dwarfs, which frequently adds achievements for sales, just got an update with a new one which nobody has.

Actually, there's no Warhammer 40k content at all in the bundle, maybe for this kind of sale they need Games Workshop's permission to put those products?
I'll be honest, I was of the opinion that the Humble Bundle was 'selling out', so to say, but if THQ actually took up PWYW bundles as a regular part of their business model, all of my objections go out the window. The Humble Bundle's indie cred is totally worth sacrificing if it means convincing the 'big boys' that there's money to be made and customers to be reached with the bundle model.
I mean, look at Amazon. They're basically selling a variety of Paradox game bundles already. I think they might have a significant amount to gain by switching it over to a multi-tiered PWYW model a la IndieGameStand.
