This is perhaps the BEST line-up I've seen. I own each of these games and every one of them has provided hours of fun.

Bastion is absolutely dazzling. The story is great, the graphics are astounding, the way the narration takes place is better than any game of this style I have ever played. I highly recommend this bundle for this game alone.

Limbo is a great puzzle game (much like Vessel). Again, hours of fun and an interesting storyline.

Amnesia is a great game if you play it like intended. Set it up in a dark room, setup the brightness just right, and turn the speakers up. It is a creepy little game.

Psychonauts and Superbrothers are both good games as well. I bought psychonauts through GOG.com during a special that lanux showed me a few years back.

Overall, this is perhaps the best bundle that HIB has put out. Highly recommended!

Awesome line up.

This will be the third time that I've paid for Psychonauts! But it is so good I don't begrudge that one bit.

Dived into SuperBrothers: Swords and Sworcery - enjoying it so far. A unique feel to the game.

This "pay more than average to get one more game" deal is particularly interesting! Did previous incarnations of the Humble Bundle also have that? I wonder what effect that will have in the amount of money collected at the end.

@jgpaiva: Yep that is standard HIB protocol.

I think that over time it ensures that the average price keeps creeping up - so if you want the best value deal you have to get in there fast.

This has become an absurdly awesome bundle - it contains most of my favourite games of all time, and risks adding a couple of new entries to my list...

"Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP" was superb.

This is perhaps the best bundle that they have put out....just in case I didn't mention this before. I might just buy it again, just on principle.

That's what I have done. Got all the games but worth supporting.

By the way have you seen GOG have some good titles on offer at the moment? http://www.gog.com/p...o/amazing_anuman_set

About to chew my hat here.. (though I don't even own one...). .

I used amazon payments to donate to the humble bundle but Humble Bundle doesn't seem to have a record of my transaction. Amazon payments has a record and a confirmed statement saying it was sent. Humble Bundle keeps saying they don't have a record (I sent them amazon's transaction number).

Not sure what to do here.. don't really want to do a charge-back (via amazon) nor do I want to feel like I was just screwed here.  :-\

I am considering just forgetting the whole thing and chalk it up to a decent donation to a worthy cause..

If you sent a payment and can forward them the transaction details they should take it up with Amazon on your behalf.

Alternatively send the correspondence to Amazon and ask them to sort it out - Amazon CS are usually pretty good.

Never had any issues with Humble with PayPal.

Well.. it took a little time, but the fine folks doing the Humble Bundle (Josh) figured out what the issue was and things were resolved.

Waiting on the next Humble Indie Bundle...  :-*

Nice find Carol, I am sure others might be tempted.

Me is busy checking out my belated humble bundle. I have a long plane ride coming up this weekend so hopefully I will be able play some of the games on my laptop.

@Carol Haynes:

Yes, Amazon CS is pretty good and that is half the reason I shop on Amazon. Surprisingly even when I get "outsourced" Amazon CS, they have been decent and have always been able to resolve issues (plus I have been able to understand them).

I MISSED THIS ONE!

Me too.  I don't have all of the bundles, but would have liked to have caught this one.

It was my own fault - I was aware of the deal, but my undeniably awesome procrastination ability won out.  I need to figure out a way to make money off of that skillset.
