    Phoronix: Humble Indie Bundle 4 Just Started

    As suspected, there's a new Humble Indie Bundle in time for Christmas. The "Humble Indie Bundle 4" just got started this afternoon with a collection of new multi-platform, DRM-free games where you can set your own price...

    Yes, I have read all the posts, and the twitter message, and obviously there's a reason for everything... But I'm still disapointed .

    Just reread, and could not see it, and diliking this sort of comment anyway. The reason I have seen stated elsewhere was the developers had voted for it being replaced in this bundle...and EFF will return in later bundles. I suspect strongly though it is simply experimenting with the Bundle Model.

    Fortunatly we linux users show how to do it right, we are buying each time less. Keep the good job guys.

    Now a news from the future:
    "A new bundle was anounced today, with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Batman Arkham City. Yes just 3 games, and i never heard about then.
    But i heard that maybe, Valve will release a linux version of Half-Life 1 until 2025."
    for 1 game you are wrong = '''Gratuitous Space Battles''' this game is just awesome.

    this game is a single game genre no other game are in the same genre.

    its a unique game.

    this game is not a cheap copy from another game this is a original!

    it is a game like "Counter-strike" be sure it is popular!

    If only these commercial games maker could learn to stop dynamic linking... Or provide the source...

    a desktop file is also missing for bit.trip.runner...
    I'm sure that you, being a distro maintainer are used to even worse packaging than this for binary blobs.
    And btw, it might have helped others to share what the workaround is, I belive the game bundles an ancient libc version, right? I bought the bundle but didn't yet get the chance to try the games, I'll probably do it when they add the option to redeem them on Desura (I hope they will add it).

    For the ones complaining, go back to windows, it suits you better. You'll have something real to complain about.

    I buy the bundles/whatever you want to call them, to show support for Linux as a gaming platform, pure and simple. If I like the games, cool, if not that's ok. My taste may change in the future.

    I keep a vague interest in the gaming scene as I like gaming but decided years ago that I liked Linux as a whole, a lot more, to ditch windows so why should I keep a keen interest in the happenings of something that I do not want to be a part of? I do not consider wine as supporting Linux gaming and as such, yes I do miss out on a lot of games I would like to play but I've made my decision.

    Yes, it is hard at times to be a Linux only gamer but the times are a changing fuelled by like minded people.

    With this bundle, I had only loosely heard of two of the games prior to my purchase. Super meat boy and GSB. Both of which I didn't see as much fun. They both have their merits and I'm happy they were included. So far the only other games I've played are Night sky and Shank. With those two alone, I'm very glad that I've got this bundle. Big props go to Shank as I don't think we've got anything quite like this on Linux.

    Question is, do you want to be able to enjoy "gaming on linux"*? What are you prepared to do?
