    Better title

    I am about to complain about headline not being "loud" enough... which is almost always the opposite of my complaint with headlines..

    "Four new titles added to Humble Bundle"

    Instead... "Oilrish for $6! and 10 other games"

    Missed it this time.. wonders if there will be other sales. For $6 it's worth it, I'm waiting for a demo before I would spend $20.. (I'm not sure it will run on my current hardware)

    Yeah, Valve sells gift keys, and you don't have to register your HIB games. Just sit on them till theres a sale on a game you want and ask to trade to people that missed those games on the HIB, since while the HIB is on they aren't worth much.

    Yeah, but it seems kind of like a game that's designed for co-op multiplayer, the singleplayer mode doesn't seem all that interesting...

Maybe it's just me but I actually enjoy precise control schemes, especially since the game lets you configure the controls the way you want, and also you don't have to use every attack in every situation. I like it much better than control schemes where you have to use awkward combinations of a few buttons.

    One thing I hate though, is the tendency of games these days to assume that you're using an xbox-type controller, up to the point where buttons are named according to the xbox naming scheme - what's up with that? Xbox controllers are pieces of shit, the d-pad is crap for any game requiring accurate controls, such as platformers or fighting games... In Bastion, I couldn't even configure all buttons because the game assumes an x-box controller and thus doesn't even recognize all the buttons in my generic ps-style gamepad and the game wouldn't allow using keyboard + gamepad at the same time... well, I managed to play it through anyway.

    Dungeon Defenders I still haven't really tried, mainly because I can't find 3 other guys to play it with, and playing a co-op with random strangers doesn't seem like it would necessarily work out all that well...

    Same - I haven't got around to playing Dungeon Defenders yet, and I barely played Shank 2. I got past 3 levels in Shank 2 but didn't enjoy much - the game is well made but it isn't my cup of tea. My main complaint about it is there's too many controls for something that demands quick reflexes. There's basically 5 different attack buttons, and while their existence can be justified, that's just a little too much when you consider that you also need to worry about dodging and aiming.
