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.

      Just finished season 1 of Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans. I enjoyed it, but man I can't help but notice the parallels with Gundam Wing. A young female working for peace, a semi-emotionless male pilot, an antagonist that disguises himself with a mask in a red mobile suit? Eh, maybe I'm looking too much into it, there are more differences than similarities. Since CN has the broadcast rights, I hope Funi eventually gets season 2 on stream... its the only Gundam they have. I will say I'm not the biggest fan of the designs on this one. I liked Gusion and EB-AX2, but that was about it.

      Fucking hell that was a ride. Just finished watching Steins;Gate and I have to say its an amazing show. I finally understand why people love it so much. Characters are pretty interesting (pretty bland and stereotypical but none-the-less interesting), story is completely bonkers (we're talking Serial Experiments Lain and Boogiepop Phantom levels of bonkers) and amazing, and the sheer emotional ride this puts you through is both terrifying and exciting.
      Sure it starts out pretty slow but once you get to the halfway mark it seriously starts moving at an intense pace. I normally don't praise anime this much but this is truly a great show, almost a masterpiece if I've ever seen one (probably one of the only shows I have rated at 10 on MAL that actually deserves the rating for all the right reasons, not just pure enjoyment). I highly recommend watching it if you haven't, it's definitely worth the time investment (and I'll admit it's not for everyone but if you want a show that tears your emotions to shreds and makes you think this is definitely one for you).
      Seriously can't wait for Steins;Gate 0 to start airing on Thursday (really hope CR has the simulcast for it). Now I just need to find time to watch the movie and the OVA before it starts. Also need to hope the VN this is based off of goes on sale on Steam so I can see the actual story that wasn't adapted for the anime (and to see all the other endings).

      I caught up on Overlord's season 2 simuldub. So far it's entertaining but all over the place. There isn't as much action so far which is disappointing. All these characters are so OP, but that was what was great about season 1. Especially since Ainz vs. Shalltear was an amazing finale with two ultra OP characters going at it like a chess game. However I figure everything happening now is leading up to something bigger. They're spending more time world building in season 2 in which they did very little of in season 1. Plus season 3 was ordered. People can say what they want about Funi, but I bet there are some series out there that would have never been renewed past it's first season 6-8 years ago. Props to netflix too even though their series are hit and miss. I finished A.I.C.O. Incarnation last night, while it didn't blow me away, I enjoyed it.. same goes for ID-0. It's come a long way from Toonami, spending days downloading stuff off Limewire and torrents, or staying up til 4am in hopes Sci-Fi played Akira or Vampire Hunter D

      So far Netflix is 1 for 3 on their new series. Sword Gai was ok, but it was more like a GARO/Guyver type clone. B: The Beginning could have been better written. Maybe its the story structure that is throwing me off as they are definitely more western in flow. I'll probably watch both for another season. Children of the Whales was pretty enjoyable and my favorite of the three. I definitely look forward for its most definite second season. It was pretty charming in a Studio Ghibli way.

      I ordered a new router, its an AC1900. It should be coming in the mail today. It'll be a big upgrade over the crappy very low end belkin router I've been using for 2 years. Maybe that steam link I bought over a year ago will actually work wirelessly now. That thing is a nice concept but ended up being pointless for me unless it has a wired connection. Instead I stream all my games to my laptop which works alot better. Maybe this router will improve that connection and fix some of the blockiness I get, especially while streaming netflix at the same time.
