Any shmup fans in here?
I'm kinda interested in the Gundemonium collection (Indie Royale). Usually, I'm not too much into shmups but I've played quite a lot of Jamestown and I absolutely adore it.
Would I also enjoy Gundemonium?

I loved Jamestown, too but my understanding is these shooters are far more traditional (read: difficult), so while Jamestown can get challenging as well, it leads you in with a very gradual difficulty curve.

I have yet to boot the Gundemonium games myself, but a friend of mine bought them a long while ago, and from his impressions, what I know of the game is: it's a typical japanese bullet hell. As in, prepare your ass, keep the vaseline in hand, they're called Bullet Hells for a reason.

I'm not so much concerned about the difficulty as I am about the overall quality of the series. Unfortunately, detailed reviews are scarce ...

You might want to check out this one if you haven't already, looked detailed enough to me:
There are several others for the PS3 version, but if anime graphics and potential difficulty don't turn you off, why not give it a try?

Yeah, I stumbled upon the DIYGamer review, but I haven't had the time to read the whole thing. Turns out, it was exactly what I needed ... I guess I'll give it a shot, then.
Thanks to you and Rauten!

You're welcome. And if you need to rid yourself of that Journey down key feel free to throw it this way :D No, really, play it unless you totally hate adventure games.

Guess what, Gamefly have their own bundle too and it contains Amnesia, Sanctum, Limbo, All Zombies Must Die and Frozen Synapse; all for 10£.
So yeah, pretty much all of them have been in previous bundles but it's still an excellent deal for all those 2-3 people out there who don't own any of these games yet.Immersive Sims on Steam WIP

Even if it's not a very exciting bonus, I do think Syberia 1 is a nice, solid, adventure game. So it's worth getting the bundle for that game alone if you've never played it.

I hate syberia with all my heart. I found few worse adventure games. Most puzzles end up beign "use only item on inventory on the only object you can interact in all the screens". The motivations are silly, the puzzles often doesn't make sense "I need an egg so I can put it in a machine that has an egg like container because of reasons". The fact that there are a dozen screens without anything to do between point A and Point B. The irritating people calling you on a cellphone for inane chatting. And don't get me started with the final puzzle.
[spoiler]were you have to recover the stolen robot hands. They're screwed to a piano. Conveniently you have a screw driver in your inventory. You make the logic conclusion of unscrewing the hands. The answer the character gives you is something like "I can't steal something" THEY WERE STOLEN FROM YOU MANGLING IDIOT![/spoiler]
I think it's the only game I truly hate.
uf, catharsis is good.

Those are some excellent pickings, but there aren't any that I'd buy. Hoping for individual sales here.
I buy many more PWYW or tiered bundles than set bundles. You?

If Hydrophobia is Hydrophobia Prophecy, I strongly recommend it. Apparently, the initial XBox 360 game (Hydrophobia) wasn't that great but the developers reworked it based on feedback, and I enjoyed almost all of the PC version (Hydrophobia Prophecy).

Yes it's Prophecy, the store page shows the full name while the registry justs calls it Hydrophobia.
Some time next week Groupees launches their next Build a Bundle, the aptly named BaB2. I'm eager to see what they're gonna put inside it, hopefully it won't be mostly repeats like the first one. Since we're on the topic, last 30 hours to get BM3.
