This is already a good bundle but what makes is great is that Fez is now on Mac and Linux :D So happy about that.

Grabbed this the second I got the email! I had neither Fez nor FTL, so this was a *must* buy bundle for me!

They are both great! Cant wait to see whats added to this one.

Ditto, grabbed as soon as I got the email (mainly for Fez and FTL). Make sure to check out Mark of the Ninja it is a lot of fun (I already bought it during the steam summer sales)

I already bought Fez after watching IGTM. So thankful that I don't have to reboot into Windows to play it. And the framerate is better in Linux.

Pleased to get Mark of the Ninja. Klei has some really good titles under their belt. Looking forward to playing more of that one.

Was pleased to see that all of the Steam keys validated and all of the titles were available for Linux within hours of the HiB being posted. I would have to dig a little deeper, but I believe this also the first time that ALL of the titles were available in Steam for Linux so close to release.

So far I've played the crap out of FTL, and I still suck, but I still love it.

Fez was amazing looking... but I wanted to play more FTL, so I'll have to get more into Fez later.

I checked out Mark of the Ninga. I didn't know anything about it, but thought it looked like a fun side scrolling ninja game. Turns out it's that, and also somewhat of a puzzle game. Distracting guards to either get by them, or to silently kill them. I did enjoy hiding bodies after I killed them. I probably put an hour into the game. I definitely would be better with an xbox style controller, and of course I have a playstation style, but still an entertaining game.

I have yet to check out the other games. After playing FTL, I know I definitely got more than my money's worth on that game alone!

@Adym - Do yourself a favor and go snag a Logitech F310. With the exception of Bit.Trip Runner 2, games recognize it as an XBOX controller and I didn't have to configure a thing. Works way better than trying to use any number of methods to convince your computer the PS3 controller belongs there.

Rock on, I will look into that. Thanks!

Unless you're doing wireless, then you'll want the F710. Sorry. I sit at my computer so I don't mind a wired controller.

Somehow if I am playing by myself in the living room or office I don't mind wired. If I am playing with a friend in the living room, it bothers me. No idea why :D

It's the cords. As great as the XBOX breakaway design was, it was still annoying when someone would get up and accidentally sever the cord.

Ah yeah, I hated that. Now things break away a bit better, but you could really break some old stuff that way. Some brittle laptop power connectors come to mind :D
