Instead of blogging or being otherwise productive, here's what I've been doing all day today. And yesterday.
How did I get this game, you ask? Well, let me tell you. I downloaded this wonderful thing called the Humble Indie Bundle. It's a bundle of five awesome games. And the best part? You pay what you want! And you decide how much of your money goes to the developers of the games, charity, etc.
And you know what's even better? The bundle I just bought is the second bundle ever released, and today I got an email saying I could have all the games in the first bundle for FREE! I am happy as a clam, even if it does mean my productivity will plummet. Of the eleven games I recently downloaded, I've only delved into three, and they have all been gloriously awesome! And different. This one, Machinarium, is a puzzle-solving adventure-type game. Another one I've played, Osmos, is kind of hard to categorize (especially as I am a novice at video games, to put it mildly). You're a blob and you have to float around and absorb other blobs.
Revenge of the Titans. It's a tower defense game. It's really fun, except that it costs money to upgrade turrets and stuff, and I never seem to have enough money to upgrade anything. Sad face. It's really addicting, though. They all are.
In other news, I bought, for two dollars at a thrift store today:
All pictures in this post are from google images. Mostly because I didn't feel like getting my camera out and photographing my own Freud doll. It looks exactly the same, except there's a big $2 sticker on it.
