    I don't play indie games specifically because they're indie. But yes, I have a small collection under my metaphorical belt.

    Bastion and Hotline Miami are both fantastic indie games.

    Amazon has lots of digital sales going on for PC. Check them out if you have the time and money. I got all the old NFS games for $7.50 although I didn't want Undercover personally. >.>^

    I've played a bit of Amnesia and a lot Torchlight II. I enjoyed them, especially the latter, because I had to endure that crap Diablo III for a while, then I had to dump it, and then I wanted a Diablo-style game that wasn't Diablo.

    No, actually, you really didn't.

    I found Neverwinter Knights 1 to be pretty average. You only have control over your dude/dudette, and you only get one other person in a party, so combat get's stale fast. The dialogue is pretty cliche and cheesy as well. It's really only worth it for level building tool and possibly multiplayer. I haven't play NWN 2, so it might be an improvement.

    Baldur's Gate and 2 give you full control over a party of up to 6 and the isometric perspective gives you a good view of the dungeon. I would go for it over Neverwinter Nights in most cases.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EptYl4xpRg <- Neverwinter Nights 2 review. Its ALOT better then the first one.

    Plus the fact that you can create your own modules gives it a one up on baulders gate.

    Edit: @Unova: I personally like the depth of the gameplay never winter nights allows more then baulders gate. Neverwinter Nights 2 can do anything Baulders Gate 2 can do and more (not necessarily better mind you just more options)

    From what I've seen the console versions of Far Cry 3 run and look like shit. I'm looking forward to buying the PC version, probably during the Steam sale.

    I need $858.88 to build my gaming PC. (-__-)

    Still cheaper than buying a prebuilt one though.

    So I've been playing Psychonauts now... the art style and whole game give me an Invader Zim vibe.

    You sure you can't save around $400 more and get a higher end system? Or you can go on Newegg and buy bundles to save some, but I doubt you'll get a good price/performance ratio with $858.88. Post the specs and we'll see.

    I heard good things about it and picked it up on spec.

    I've been pleasantly surprised by it thus far - good graphics, interesting environment, most definitely has a unique feel compared to any other shooter I've played.

    So they released the first few minutes of BioShock Infinite.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60zmVrtIBzw

    Yippee.

    Is anyone else not feeling particularly excited by Infinite by now? It looks like it's going the wrong gameplay direction, with the non-switchable melee attacks (Pressing a button as opposed to wielding it), the grenades, the sprinting, and everything. It just looks a little generic.

    It also looks like they're trying too hard to recapture the feeling of Rapture. I mean, there's the lighthouse, and then there's that bathysphere look-alike at the beginning of the game. It might not be much, true, but for the first few minutes those are some pretty big similarities.

    Is this even the same game that I had on pre-order a year ago?

    I've yet to play either of the BioShock games, aside from the demo of the first, but I have to say I do like what I've seen for Bioshock Infinite.

    The ultra violent nature of the people of Columbus strikes me as being in line with the ultra violent nature of the Splicers and such in Rapture. Also the concept of Columbus as a kind of "cult of the founders" is a clever, but different, continuation of "everyone for themselves" philosophy behind Rapture.

    The Plasmid and Weapon system look to be very similar, if not totally identical - although it's hard to tell just from demo videos

    I've heard great things about it, but I'm not sure.

    Oh, well as good as it may be on PC, I won't have something capable of running more than 8-bit games for a loooooong time.

    All of those equals (if I did the math right) $871.9. My friend found me these, so if you know more parts and for a lower price AND still be better, PM me.

    You can save like $200 if you don't invest in those keyboard, mouse, and headset. Those can easily be found cheaper.

    Hey, some people are, you know, actually serious about playing video games.
