I got the Humble Indie Bundle 4!

Posted by Technom (26 posts) -

I started playing Super Meat Boy and it's wonderful. After this game, which one should I play?

Shank? Jamestown? Cave Story+ (even though I already finished Cave Story)? ...

We'll see. ;D

And you, GiantBombers? Did you buy the bundle?

Yup, got it and as I always do, I gave 50 bucks for it because why not?  
 
Almost punched a guy in the face because he just went "nah I pirated it" when I asked him if he bought it. 
Guess that's better than paying $0.01 for it, but still.

@ZeForgotten: Hey, 50 bucks! That's nice.

Actually, HiB4 is the first bundle I bought. I plan to buy the other ones and give a little more, to support the charities and the devs. :p

#4 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -
@Technom: Exactly. I could have paid less easily and even if you buy them seperately on steam it probably still wouldn't be $50 but most of the money went to Childs Play and the devs and then the rest just got split up whatever. 
It's charity, that's why punching people who pirate it or pay only $0.01 for it in the face is a-ok with me. Or kick them, if that's more your thing :P

Picked it up earlier, I've wanted to play SMB and cave story for a while. Charity gave me the excuse to take the risk on whether it would run on my laptop or not. I might one more and gift them round my friends for christmas.

I always feel bad about these bundles. I want the games, and I'd love to support the charities, but I feel like I'm ripping them off by paying such a low amount (I'd have just bought the games normally, if I could afford to).

But I suppose giving something is better than nothing.

I can barely afford games, so I always buy these. I love them. I try to give as much as possible.

I'd say save cave story for later if you just finished it and give Bit. Trip Runner a try. If you can play meat boy without putting something through your screen, you'll have a blast with runner.

As long as he uses some sort of controller for it. 
At least that's safer to throw at a screen with less chance of breaking it than say, a keyboard. Unless you have one of those Flimsy... I mean "flexible" keyboards

Jamestown's been keeping me busy the past 7 hours, the levels are insane on the highest difficulty. I'll probably spend a lot of time in this game, I love bullet-hell shooters.

Jamestown is AMAZING. Cave Story+ is good, but Cave Story is always good. Shank is probably the worst thing here.

You are not allowed to play another game until you get The Kid in SMB.

#12 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

Shank is pretty terrible.

I'm proud to say I've bought every Humble Bundle so far. Gotta say that I think this has been the best one yet.

#14 Posted by AssInAss (2598 posts) -

I paid $10 for it. I already had Super Meat Boy, Shank, Cave Story. I only bought it because this makes me want to actually finish Cave Story, and because those are all awesome games.

#15 Posted by Choffy (443 posts) -

I've bought the last three, even though my computer isn't good enough to play any of them.

#17 Posted by procrasturbate (277 posts) -

Got it! Only tried Shank and Runner. Pretty cool.

#18 Posted by WickedCobra03 (2103 posts) -

I gave $15 dollars. I own Super Meat Boy on the Xbox 360 (on sale for 5 a few weeks ago) and Cave Story (on the Wii) as well as Bit Trip Runner, so I kind of don't need these again, but it is nice to get these games on my Mac machines... so I ended up giving 15 which I thought was a fair price for basically the 3 games I wanted.

I've bought every damn one of 'em. They've been great! But this one... this one takes the cake. Isn't that right, Zach?

#21 Posted by BoG (5187 posts) -

Sadly, the best games in the bundle I owned prior to my purchase, those titles being Cave Story + and Jamestown. I've been playing Meat Boy, which is great, but I've played very similar games to death. Bit.TRIP is really fun, but it gives me a headache.

#22 Posted by Kandycane2029 (511 posts) -

I just purchased it. Downloading Super Meat Boy right now, as it's really the only game I wanted. I already have it on 360 and bought the 2 disc soundtrack months ago, but I'm always willing to give Team Meat, DannyB and Child's Play more money.

#23 Posted by Technom (26 posts) -

Ah! I have SMB on my laptop, but that damn bandage I wanna get.

It makes me rage a little bit. Just a little.

So I'm installing Jamestown.

I've been buying a lot of bundles lately (Indie Music Bundle, Indie Royale bundles, and this Humble Indie Bundle), so it's always confusing as to what I've gotten. I'm actually enjoying Shank. I've never liked beat-em-up games, and though Shank does have some problems, it's neat to look at and has mechanics that I'm enjoying. Being able to dodge, block and crowd control keeps it pretty engaging.

The soundtracks are what really convinced me to give. I really like a lot of these videogame soundtracks. Especially Cave Story, Super Meat Boy and Night Sky. But downloaded all of them and will give all them listen throughs!

Anyone who visits Giantbomb, you are already pretty into games as it is, so I would recommend it to anyone here. Crazy, cute and insanely fun.

I don't think Shank is "terrible," but it is incredibly boring to me. The game play is fine, the visuals are really good, but man....it's so tedious. I bought it on PSN for 5 bucks awhile back. Got through it playing a little bit at a time.

Bit.Trip Runner is great to play it smaller chunks(like Super Meat Boy). Ones I'm liking the most out of the bundle so far are Jamestown and Cave Story. Kinda surprised how much I'm liking Jamestown. I've never been a huge fan of those kind of games, although I don't dislike them either, but I'm having a lot of fun with Jamestown.

#27 Posted by Jeust (10537 posts) -

I also bought it. It is awesome! My favourite game of the bunch is Super Meat Boy.

#28 Posted by Wampa1 (634 posts) -

For some reason the game I've played most is Shank, even though I know it's by far the most middling and unoriginal of the bunch I can't say no to gimp fights...

#29 Posted by Technom (26 posts) -

@whistlebottom: Yeah, the number of bundles available are growing! Hard to keep track of 'em. :p

#30 Posted by Optix12 (611 posts) -

im so glad this bundle comes with the soundtracks, one of the highlights of the deal in my opinion. I have only played a real small amount of cave story and SMB with 1 zone completed on bit.trip runner. I feel like i want to push on with cave story + and have runner for one of those "oh ive got 5-10 minutes, why not a quick attempt" deal. With everyone saying Jamestown is pretty awesome i think il give that a chance next.

@evilrazer gifted me that bundle! 
 
I've already played SMB, and recently I had been thinking of buying Shank so.. I'm playing that one first!
#32 Posted by Lavapotamus (199 posts) -

I already owned all the games I cared about in this bundle. Then they included the soundtracks...yeah, I caved. I'm glad I finally own the title music from Bit.Trip Runner though!

#33 Posted by MetalBaofu (1365 posts) -

Got an email today that they added Humble Bundle 3 for anyone that paid over the average(Including those who already have purchased Bundle 4). Bundle 3 is Cogs, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Hammerfight, And Yet It Moves, and VVVVVV.

Figured I would post to let people that haven't bought the bundle yet, or people that haven't seen the email, know. That makes it 12 games + soundtracks.
