Metro 2033's benchmark utility is worth $5.62. (I bought the bundle for $10) I haven't been able to get the benchmark utility to work. It crashes and causes Steam to crash as well. So far I've only tried to launch Metro 2033 and the game runs fine.

Even though I wasn't much interested in the games themselves, I've bought 2 bundles for three reasons:
1) Supporting the PC games industry (kudos to THQ for such a bundle and proceeds designation)
2) Act of charity
3) Pretty good gift to give to others

i have most the games there but metro 2033, titan quest and the rts

i stopped liking rts games a while ago, just not fun when it feels like the ai cheats and it comes down to luck more often than not. and i dont like playing them multiplayer, because i know people there learn every keyboard command and i cant care to, its just not fun for me.

i bought darksides on a steam sale over thanks giveing which i am annoyed with right now because of this...

and i have saints row.

i want titan quest, but as its not gold, and if i bought this, i would still be paying even more than waiting on gold going on sale... i cant bring myself to

and while i would like metro 2033 for benchmark purposes, the game style has nothing im interested in at all.

FYI, if you already bought the bundle and paid enough to get Saint's Row....check the redemption page again. Looks like previous buyers get Titan Quest and the DLC for Red Faction without having to buy the bundle again.

Company of Heroes is a fantastic RTS, worth playing if only for it's story.

I never felt as if the AI "Cheated" me during CoH, and on most levels it seems as though the player is given the upper hand as you can often go at your own pace and the enemy rarely pushes the frontline, choosing to defend it's own territory (there are a couple of missions where the enemy will counter your attack or flank you but it's not the type of game that just throws a wall of units at you. Everything is fairly evenly matched.)

Everybody is sayin SRTT is worth the 5.60, I'd say easily that CoH is worth it, despite being older.

I think they're trying to drum up buzz for CoH 2 and the SRTT DLC. They probably threw in Titan Quest simply because everybody owns it by now (it's gone on xmas sale for like 3 dollars the past few years.)

that's always the case. You can go back to any bundle which you paid more than the average and get all the goodies after it ends. No reason to wait, just buy now and check when it's done.

Ok now I've gone and updated my bundle to include Titan's Quest and the Red Faction DLC. I also like that the soundtracks are available for download as well. For me, the Metro 2033 benchmark only works if I'm completely exited out of Steam. I run the bench, then it prompts me to log into Steam, and then the benchmark runs. It's still temperamental and if Steam is already open, the bench will crash every time. I wish I'd known about these bundles awhile ago. I'd love to pick up an "Indie" bundle. I've got my 7 yr old girl who needs to expand her gaming portfolio lol

well, now im thinking of getting it for the CoH, the part in strat games i hate the most, is i have my objective, half way through the map, at what could be 15-30 minutes into the match, something happens, and my team is completely screwed, no chance in winning because of something that happened off screen. so that means that 30 minutes of preperation all went down the drain because i prepared for a different scenerio than they gave me half way through.

the only kind of game play style i hate more than the poorly done escort mission (resident evil 4 managed to pull it off right) is the style where the only way you can win is by knowing what comes next, and the only way to know is to die. and compound that with how many games with that style of gameplay also have maps or missions that go on for WAY to long...

does CoH do that at all? or does it feel like its all your bad when you lose in singleplayer?

COH in general focuses on action more than building huge armies. A couple of squads of guys in the right place can win the day, it's generally less of a tank rush (like one would see in Command & Conquer series), and more about getting a strong mix of infantry, tank guns, and defenses. I don't generally like strat games, but CoH had a great campaign in my memory, and fun multiplayer (though I was only really good with airborn, being able to drop troops and anti-tank anywhere fit my play-style well).

edit: It's a must have for anyone who is a WWII buff, at least one of the campaigns follows the "band of brothers" story pretty tightly.
