Of 2013: Year of the Bundle

of2013-bundle

Do you want a backlog of games you may never play without spending a lot of money? Is your Steam list embarrassingly short and you want to fluff it up without going broke? Do you like collecting/selling Steam trading cards? If so then you better get yourself back to January and buy up every bundle you see because 2013 was totally the Year of the Bundle.

From the Humble Bundle to Indie Royale to the Indie Game Stand (and beyond, there’s a wiki just for bundles!), I bought a ton of games for not a lot of money in 2013. Some of them I wanted badly and some of them were surprising new favorites that I never would’ve bought on their own. Most I haven’t even played yet… but I’ve got them. Ya know, in case people stop making new games.

And now — for no other reason than the comedic value of a massive list — here’s everything I got through a bundle in 2013.

Happy Black Friday Birthday!

Thanksgiving morning we packed up for a trip back home to my parents’ place. With handhelds in tow for entertainment we ate and chatted with family as we all poured over the Black Friday newspaper ads. I coerced myself into an 8pm run to Walmart after seeing some real hot bangers were on sale.

I didn’t get Forza Horizon like I was hoping for but I did grab Spec Ops: The Line and Max Payne 3 on Xbox 360 for $15 each. Katy got me the Chromeo CD for my birthday, my sister got me the PlayStation Plus card which I was able to redeem right from the Vita and start downloading, and my folks slipped me some 20’s.

The next morning we went to Meijer a little after 7am and found it no busier than a normal day. A small corner of their circular promised Vita stuff was going to be marked down but it didn’t specify games, accessories or both. My hunch was right, though, and it included memory cards; I got a 16gb card for 50% off. Little Deviants was marked down to $10 so I grabbed a copy of that too. It was a pretty stress-free and fun birthday holiday for me. I hope you guys scored good deals or had good times as well!
