I must be old then cause I've never heard that term either. I had to look it up.

Why not just call it Rave and then we'd all know what you meant :P

That's an overgeneralization. I'm not particular with other genres that can be lumped into "rave music," so I can't recommend it in this context.

I'm pretty sure that "rave" is more of a culture than a specific sub-genre of music. Drum and bass is often played at raves, but so is trance and other forms of electronica.

If you have $5 and need some racist, sexist 90s FPS action, be sure to look at the Duke Nukem 3d and Shadow Warrior 66% off deal. http://store.steampowered.com/sub/18620/

Highly recommended as long as you can overlook the above and old school graphics.

As with FTL, if you're tempted by the sale on The Swapper, get it from the developers.

Is anyone still waiting to pick up a copy of Skullgirls? I have extra slots in a 4-pack.

New Humble Bundle. This one's... definitely a lot of value.

yes quite a few very high profile games there, however it is Origin.  I haven't seen BF3 that cheap before (not that I've bothered to look).

I'm tempted though ..

If BF3 MP only?

The cool thing is that you basically get 3 of each game for the ones that have Steam versions, because you get three keys - one on Steam and two on Origin.

As far as I know, the campaign is like a Call of Duty except less good. Make what you will of that.

What is Dead Space 3 like?  Keep in mind I'm yet to play 1 and 2. 

I already own all those with Steam unlocks and would prefer to stay away from the Sims.

My understanding is DS2 is the best of the 3, but they're all supposed to be good.

If you get the bundle and need a home for Sims stuff, though, feel free to keep me in mind. ;) I have the base game but I don't have the DLCs  in that bundle. :D

And remember: you get two origin keys and a steam key for each steam-able game so there's tons of future gifting/trading potential there.

Also, if you don't have Mirror's Edge, well, that's pretty amazeballs.
