    Worth it for Worms Armageddon alone. Such a fantastic game. Every new worms feels like crap because of how good Armageddon is.

    Were it not Steam only I would have been all over this. Oh well these weekly bundles usually are.

    Nah. There are separate download links this time. Why don't you like steam?

    Hmm I took "*Please note this bundle requires you to redeem on your Steam account. " to mean you needed a steam account, when it is not the case they usually make sure to note it properly.

    As for why no steam then as long as they do not allow me to freely give away or sell my old games I am not inclined to use them. There are other things I do not like but I am prepared to write those off as the cost of doing business.

    I like digital distribution of games fine (my data backup systems, to say nothing of the option for redownloading things, are better and more robust than my systems for storing discs and the like), I just like being able to lend, sell, trade or dispose of said games however I see fit to more and Steam does not allow that.

    At first, I read "Worms Reloaded Gold", but then... eugh.

    I already have Armageddon, so I'm staying at least 50 feet away from this bundle.

    I understand that for full price new releases but is it really such an issue when these games cost a few pennies?

    Oh I could see some people with different lines drawn in the sand (one is an asset of sorts, another could exist where a low price makes for a disposable pleasure for of thing), for myself I figure I lose nothing of great note by not being able to play them and in bending there risk of the crack through which such things can crawl getting wider.
