I can’t handle this, you guys.
No, seriously, I can’t handle this. I feel like crying. This is unbelievable. I am sitting here with my head in my hands (typing with my elbows, natch) just oh-man-oh-god‘ding it up.

Like, I don’t even like this. I want all of these games, damn it. I already own like half of them, but I want all of them.
These bundles are just the start of it, too. There are a bunch (97, to be precise) individual indie games that have been priced to move in a serious way: Super Meat Boy for $3.79, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom for forty-nine cents, and a whole lot more. It’s disgusting.
The worst part is that it isn’t even over. A user at CheapAssGamer who more or less correctly predicted this entire list a couple days ago is talking up a yet-unreleased “Indie Potato Bundle” that will contain AaAaAA!!! – A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Audiosurf, Bit.Trip Beat, Braid, Cogs, Defense Grid, Killing Floor, Red Orchestra, Super Meat Boy, The Ball, The Wonderful End of the World, [and] Toki Tori.” If Steam maintains their current level of insanity, it’s likely that this bundle will wind up priced at $0.00.
All right, you guys have at these – I need to go lie down and figure out how I’m going to afford anything else ever again.
