It's decent if you can stand quick time events. Not much like Omikron at all. I still need to play Heavy Rain.

Same developer. I really enjoyed the story...until the ending. But I'd still recommend it.

The DLC count is looking a little weak. Step up your game son!

I don't think there are any cards, but there's a badge to earn for this new "Spring Cleaning" event STEAM just scheduled. Looks like they want to get people playing games instead of just hoarding them. :D
Dust off that library of games and uncover something new, during the Steam Spring Cleaning Event!

Earn a new badge for your Steam profile by playing selected games already in your Steam library, or by trying out something new from an assortment of games with a great history on Steam available for free this weekend!
More info here

The page will tell you which games you have that will count. Pretty easy to just run the games and close them. The most annoying thing was downloading Half-Life which is only 4GB.

Yeah, I haven't found it to be a problem. I am quite curious to see what's in the mystery boxes.

It's probably either a coupon or card. I'm not getting my hopes up for anything more interesting.

I’m finally doing something I’ve needed to do for a long time. Indie Gala was the last bundle site where I needed to break my mindless addiction. Humble and Fanatical aren’t a “problem” because they are less frequent than Indie Gala and include good games. But Indie Gala has been on a 3-a-week cycle for $3-$4 each for quite a while now, and nine times out of ten the bundle is 10-12 games that are ALL crap, not one single thing worth trying. And I’ve been buying them anyway because, we’ll, it’s crap I didn’t have. So in the last week or so I’ve skipped a few bundles from them, which is all I had to do to break the habit, make a new rule. Now I’ll only buy a bundle if there’s a game in it that I know I’d pay that price for if it were the only game.

Part of what made up my mind was a day when I’d gotten behind and had 100 keys to enter from IG and they were all garbage. That’s a lot of $3 flushed down the drain. Yay for breaking bad habits.

Well, badge crafting is now in that window of dropping cards for the sale rather than coupons, so here it comes.

Awesome. All signs point to this Thursday (6/21) so I guess it's time to prepare...
