Humble Bundle V is AWESOME.

Latest Humble Bundle V has launched.

Oh look, it's a bundle with Psychonauts, Amnesia, and the over average payout game is Bastion. If you don't own them, you've really got no reason not to purchase this one. It reads like a hitlist of must play games. Only two weeks though, so decide for yourself quickly or it'll be gone.

I already own most of them, and here's a quick summary(really quick, I'm in a rush to do a lot of stuff today):

Rant: Sonic 4: Episode 1

I'm hesitant to call this a review, mostly because I haven't finished the game in question.  Generally I like to finish games before posting reviews to give them a chance to redeem themselves with later gameplay.  But I feel this must be said now, especially since Episode 2 is out on steam and contains an incentive designed to sell copies of the first game.  I'll be quick here.

For clarity, I'm talking about Sonic 4 Episode 1 only.  The developers have said that many of these issues are addressed in Sonic 4: Episode 2.  I'm a bit short on funds to find out for myself, so everything in this ramble is only about Episode 1 and may not apply to the new chapters.

Sonic 4 is a decent platforming game that is decently good at everything except being a Sonic Game.  I had heard from others that the physics were a bit broken in this game, but this is much worse then I had imagined.

I know, you don't believe me.  Ok, let me explain in greater detail.

Portal 2: Steam Workshop Edition

Just a quick heads up for anyone who doesn't already know.

Portal 2 now has an official Level Editor, of the point and click together variety.  The trailer for it is pretty much self explanatory, so here's the store page directly so you can view it yourself in all it's glory.  By the way, it's a completely FREE update for those who already own Portal 2, and included in Portal 2 from now on for those new to the game: (first video trailer is the official trailer from Cave Johnson himself.  It's also funny.)

The game is on sale for 66% off till 5/10/2012(midweek madness promotion), bringing it's price down to $6.79 USD.
