This bundle looks great. Dust: An Elysian Tail is an amazing game.
btw, I know I didn't make a topic for the last Sid Meier Bundle, I was going to but the games didn't really seem to grab my attention. It seems that a lot of people really love those games though. Maybe after I play Civ 5 I'll understand the appeal.

Brick Mansions is a remake of the 2004 french film Banlieue 13 (District B13). Staring Paul Walker and David Bell who is reprising his role from the original film.

I love the original so I will probably go see this. I'm wondering how toned down the parkour aspect of it will be as Paul Walker was probably not on the level of David Bell or Cyril Raffaelli who he is replacing from the original. The story looks to be exactly the same, but they'll probably alter it a bit. The second one, District 13: Ultimatum, was in theaters a few years ago and had a super cheesy story, but the action was way more over the top. They are both on Netflix right now and I'd recommend it if you want to have a ton of fun watching insane stunts pulled off by the actual actors instead of stunt doubles.

The creators of L4D are trying to change the way we play multilayer with their upcoming game called Evolve. Evolve attempts to combine the world of co-op with the world of competitive multiplayer by pitting four players against one. Four on one doesn't sound awful fair at first until you realize that the one player gets to control a giant boss-like character, while the other four have to try to take them down with four traditional sized characters.
Go here: http://evolvegame.com/sweepstakes/sweeps.html to enter the sweepstakes and take along 4 friends to PAX East to be the first to try it out!

I've purchased bundles from Groupees before and they usually have a good collection of games. I've played about half of these games as a kid and I was surprised to see this bundle. Most of the games are redeemable on Desura or direct download only. Only Two Brothers and Pineapple Smash Crew are steam games. Its a build a bundle which means you can choose which games you want and the minimum increases with each choice. If you choose all the games the minimum is $4.92.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.

      My router shat out on me today and screwed me for over an hour as I thought it was my internet. My power went out and after it came back on my router started freaking out and will only stay connected for 5 seconds at a time and then go down again for 4-5 minutes. I hooked up my old back up router in the meantime. Now I have to call up the support line tomorrow and see if Tenda will honor their warranty. I ordered a TP-Link router off amazon a little while ago for a cheap $59 on sale. It seems decent enough and I've never had any issues with TP-Link before.

      I went golfing over the weekend for the first time in about 3 years and surprised the hell out of myself by actually making par on 2 par 3 holes. I definitely need to work on my long game. I can hit a 3 wood decent enough by my skill with a driver is atrocious.
