I find it pretty off putting that people are actually complaining that they can't give away humble keys anymore.

You get a bunch of games for almost nothing already. How can you complain?

One of the main reasons I used Humble Bundle was to give games to people who I knew were too busy to go through the process themselves. I have a friend who works night shifts at a hospital for days on end, so sometimes he simply never has the opportunity to even find out a Humble Bundle is on. With the keys system I was able to buy a second bundle and simply send the keys via Steam/Facebook chat and we'd be able to play together when he was next available. This new system completely snuffs that out, if I understand it correctly.

Who can't find 2 minutes during the 2 weeks that a bundle is going on, or one week for the weekly deals, to buy it, but will then have time to play the games? That's the most ridiculous thing I've read on the internet in awhile. And if that's actually the case, you can still gift bundles. You just can't buy a bundle and strip the keys out.

Someone who's university course is split evenly between one month of placement at remote hospitals and care homes where he's basically completely out of contact, and one month at the actual university where he can have a normal student life. Sorry you find it so ridiculous, but not everybody on the planet has reliable internet access, even by phone.

Anyway, thanks to @bobafettjm, @vargasprime and @officer_falcon for clearing up the gifting thing. Most outlets made it sound like it was going to be a direct tie to your account and your account only.

@vargasprime: How does that effect bundles that don't have a no DRM option, though?

Have you considered playing through a chapter again but in co-op? The way they marketed it suggests the story might actually change a bit or at least be further fleshed out with that Carver guy around you more often, and considering the way you talked about his minimal screen presence in the Quick Look it might be interesting to contrast the versions.

This might be an Infamous 2 scenario for me. Brad really likes it, and the game itself is pretty well polished and nice looking with some style to it, but ultimately it just doesn't work that great for me. Besides, after playing the demo I'm not sure I can go back to combat like that after Bayonetta, it all just feels so sluggish for a game of this type. Oh, and getting an S-rank accidentally when I was trying to figure out the controls was worrying to say the least. I won't go as far to say Brad is "wrong", but taken as consumer advice I think I'll still be giving this game a wide berth regardless.

Below we can see Insomniac discussing the changes with the Call of Duty audience:

@Jeff: Oh Jeff, you crazy. Iron pickaxes are good enough to mine diamonds.

Well ... I suppose the subtitle is accurate, so that's something.

Man, I know Vinny and Jeff don't aren't keen on doing another Endurance Run, but considering how far off an English port of Persona 5 will be, perhaps by then they'll have recharged their Endurance Run batteries. I for one would love to see them coming back to the series after over three years and try to remember things or learn new mechanics. The Patrick and Ryan team-up was interesting, certainly, but I still think Vinny and Jeff are and always will be the ultimate Endurance Run tag-team.

I just hope they can find the time ...

Really hope the shark gun is part of the pack.

Youtube appears to be down at the moment, but when it comes back look at the uploader comments and you'll see that they didn't use the shark gun in the video, apparently.
