Links for September 11th, 2013

Some links for your eyeballs on this week in VGAD:

The 9th Humble Indie Bundle is out and it’s huge:

  • Mark of the Ninja
  • Brutal Legend
  • Trine 2
  • Eets Munchies (Beta)

I recommend that you pay over the average (Currently around 4 bucks) to get two more great games:

  • Fez
  • FTL: Faster Than Light

If you’re not familiar with the Humble Bundle, it’s a Pay-What-You-Want service where a certain amount of what you pay goes toward the developers of the games you’re buying, some goes to the developers of those games, and some goes to the Humble Bundle Organizers. Each bundle has an extra few games you can qualify for if you pay above the average. So if the average contribution is 5 bucks, you can pay 5.01 to get the whole shebang.
