The original Fallout is free at gog.com. Only for the next two days, though!
Whenever GOG puts up a game for free, I grab it unless the genre is completely uninteresting. Granted, I already have Fallout. . .
This may not be entirely on topic, but I only recently got a GOG account (For Fallout, of course)
Are the free games that come pre-bought on the account any good?
Well, there's Ultima IV, for one.
Eh... that's mostly a dungeon crawler, isn't it?
If you like Shmups Tyrian is the best of its era.
Let me quote this:
Yep, they added an "independent comic book "Sonia the Cruel" the action racing game "Gear Grinder",
and 4 magic music albums!" to the 5 previous games and available to anyone who had purchased and beaten the average which now is $4.69.
Whoa, really? I've had the first two Fallout games on my wishlist for a while now!
Created thread about Desura then it hit me: If I want answer to my question, I won't get it because apparently Desura is so obscure that it doesn't have thread nor page. And Indie Royale thread is overshadowed by Humble Indie Bundle thread.
So if I want answer to my question, I'll ask here it again :P Is Desura worth using?
@Mukora: TAG is good.

Desura has some rather obscure titles (Like half the stuff on indie royale) and is really convenient for installing Source Mods for HL 2.
Okay, because replies were slow, I already downloaded it.
Its... Kinda like steam with slightly more awkward interface and much more indie titles O_o Seriously, mainstream ones are really rare there. I like it though though it does feel odd to me. Still kinda pity its obscure, indie game fans aren't really gonna learn of indie titles if only thing focused on them is obscure too
Though it is fitting that the more "mainstream" platform focused in indie games and obscure indie games is itself obscure.
I feel bad for Indie Gala. They're having their worst bundle yet. Their first bundle was quite nice but I know it only sold 45654 instances and had a disastrously low average (like $1.80).
Then their second bundle was a bit annoyingly complicated but they sold around 30000 instances.
Now their third bundle returns to the Humble Bundle model but with an assortment of bonuses, and they have netted just over 17800 sales. The average of 4.69 is somewhat respectable, but that's a really low sales number even compared to their past bundles.
That said, feeling bad for them doesn't justify my giving them more money, as I'm not actually interested in anything they're offering.
I kinda want to give them more money for their first bundle, actually. Though only after I've actually gone and tried the Hacker Evolution and Zombie Shooter games. inMomentum I don't care for. Though for Saira alone I ought to give them another 24 cents (I already paid $1.76).
You should try inMomentum just for sake of trying it out You'll never know if you actually happen to like game you've never heard about before.
I tried it. It seemed to run choppily on my computer, and I had trouble estimating the jumps right. Couldn't make it past the tutorial.
Huh really? O_o That sucks.
It seemed kinda cool game to me, but not really my type. Still nice game to play.
BTW, speaking of bundles, this is currently over, and it isn't exactly game bundle, but still.

I bought the second one.
I didn't buy either one sadly >_> <_< >_<; Mainly because I had already some music from there and I have already tons of music... I hope I can buy one at some point.(or maybe they would have bundle with old ones...)
Anyway, tried to create page for Desura. Its short and crappy, but its start at least.
The GMB is awesome, sadly I had spent to much in indies bundles when it was running and didn't buy it.
Indie Gala has now passed 20000 copies, and they've also extended the bundle period by a week. I think the jump in numbers is partly from people who were waiting 'til the last minute and also padded by their including "happy hour" bonus gifts (i.e. buy one gift get one gift free or something).
The Indie Royale Bundle is back with its spring bundle containing something for everyone (maybe). It has the spining Tower Defense game Homage to vintage sci-fi films from the 1950s, Unstoppable Gorg. It is acompained by the action RPG Depths Of Peril; the classic plataformer, two character, co-op, 16 bit graphical retro goodness Tobes Vertical Adventure. This three games are redemable on Steam. The other three games are from Radian Games, the creators of Super Cross Fire which are the Puzzle game Slydrys and the Twin Stick Shooter Inferno+ and Ballistic. All of the games except for Tobes Vertical Adventure can be redemed on Desura, also here is the forum thread for Desura.
Can someone post this on the Videogame Deals thread? I don't want to make a triple post.

Tobe's Vertical Adventure!
How long will this last?
I'm busy until at least Friday morning EDT.
Also, Telltale Games is having a massive sale◊, where you can get Sam & Max seasons 1-3, Back To The Future, Jurassic Park, Law And Order, Hector, Puzzle Agent 1 and 2, and Strong Bads Cool Game For Attractive People along with a preorder for The Walking Dead, all for just $42.49! This is an insane deal.
Well it will last for 6 and a half more days so you have time.
A really nice deal from Tell Tale
Thank you Firebert for posting it in the other thread
Indie Royale has Osmos, party game BUTTON, mystery story The Shivah, and exploration game Blueberry Garden, in their current All-Charity Pack.
A bunch of Indie Game developers are offering deep discounts on many games (and a horrible pun) the last week of the current month of May (24 May to 1 June), to celebrate indie-friendly pricing on various platforms, including direct download, Steam, Desura, the Apple App Store, and more.
Hat-tip to Joaqs for posting about this here.
