    I figured I should let other people know, I just happened to see it from someone else, didn't get an e-mail yet even though I'm subscribed...

    Doesn't really warrant another USN thread like the usual bundles, since this is just one game (though a mod can move it to USN if it's important enough). It's a great game though, especially for the money!

    It comes with a DRM-free installer, and a steam key as per the usual in humble bundles. There's also bonus items if you want to pay more (soundtrack, etc)

    Such a wonderful game, if you haven't played it you have no excuse now. Go play it.

    Funny thing is that I don't even have a dollar. ._.

    Yes!
    Wish my graphics card didn't have the worst compatibility on the planet (Mirror's Edge and DMC work fine, Bastion and Jet Set Radio work like garbage), otherwise I'd have thrown down all sorts of money for it.

    Really? I probably can't run DmC very well (Haven't tried though) but JSR and Bastion work perfect.
    I have a crappy onboard laptop card too, Radeon HD 7340. That sucks. :/

    Yes!
    The irony is that I bought a PS3 so I could play all the sweet games that don't run (but should...) on my laptop... only to find out most of them are XBLA exclusive -____-

    edit - though for what it's worth, JSR is for PS3. It's an awful port, but I love that game so much that it doesn't matter

    Maybe around 6 or 7 hours if you don't 100% everything?

    Cool idea, I don't have anything against such practices. It's a pretty good game, and at 1 USD a steal.
    Still, I would rather wait until it pops up in another Humble Bundle, and snatch it then for a bit more together with 5 other games

    Personally I found Bastion to be rather boring, but maybe that's just me.

    Snatched up a few of them for gifts.
    And one for myself as it's one of the few new-ish games my laptop can run.

    I had a lapse of sanity and got it even though my POS PC will not run it it was to good of a deal.
