On the back of the Humble Nintendo Bundle which failed hard on this side of the planet (I'm sure it was more than well received over the pond!) it's Humble's take on their greatest hits with the Humble Bundle Indie All Stars Bundle.

Team Meat were not allowed to bring Super Meat Boy to the Playstation platform in what they describe as "complicated circumstances". That's now all about to change as Super Meat Boy is now heading to the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita later this year.
That's good news, right? Now it's time for some great news as Super Meat Boy will be available free to all Playstation Plus subscribers at the time of it's release. Happy days!
Three (absolutely stunning) games, an indie movie and DLC for that movie make up the Indie Game Movie Bundle.

One of the very best platformers of the last decade, Super Meat Boy is an outstanding game, with perfect mechanics married to cheeky and charming aesthetics. It's brilliant, punishing, and intensely affordable. Though, as with most red meat, we'd advise against playing this if you have a heart condition.
You will fail. A lot.
Videogaming is one of the most versatile and thought-provoking forms of entertainment out there. They teach us about ourselves, they enrich our lives, they let us bond with unforgettable new friends and push the boundaries of what it really means to interact with a work of art. But, let's not kid ourselves, usually we play games because they're barnstormingly fun and properly satisfying to the point of afterglow.
So, to this end, we've prepared a list of some of the most satisfying moments in videogame history. There's no rhyme or reason here, just ten of our most exquisitely gratifying gaming experiences that leave us smugly grinning at our tellies and handhelds like an utter loon. Naturally we want to hear from you in the comments, and perhaps create a brand new democratic list in the discussion thread!
Honourable mentions: Beating Shao Khan, dual-wielding anything (especially RCP-90s), getting a massive cascade in Puzzle Quest, beating Chrono Trigger, defeating Gannondorf, Wii Sports hole-in-one, scoring an impossible goal in FIFA, LOOTSPLOSIONS, "Monster Kill... kill... kill...kill!", annihilating the Four Kings, achievement unlocked, crushing your best lap/ghost time, surviving Ninja Gaiden
We've all done it, even though we all know better. When staring death in the face, we should go to ground or use our equipment, but in the heat of the moment it's all too easy to clench the triggers and throw a grenade god knows where in the vain hope that we take someone with us.
It's stupid, except that sometimes it works. And it feels just... so great.
By far the most satisfying 'post-mortem Hail Mary' comes courtesy of the Halo series, when you manage to stick a plasma grenade to a fully-manned Warthog the split-second before it runs you over. Dying has never felt so awesome.Click here to read more...
Alright then folks, you know the drill by now. Steam have given us nine more deals on their front page, and we’ve got the best of the bunch highlighted below for your convenience. Check them out below!
The standard edition is currently going for a fiver in this sale, but for £1.24 extra you can get the entire collection of DLC to go with the main game. The game itself may falter during the action sequences, but the rest of the experience is definitely worth a look, especially at this price.
Yowzer. With the exception of Shogun II, this Mega Pack contains ever Total War game that has been released, including their expansions. That’s a lot of war for under a tenner.
The tough-as-nails platformer gets a hefty reduction in today’s listings, and at £3 it is worth every penny. Also on sale is the soundtrack, so if you fancy being reminded of the torment after you’re done it will only set you back £1.24.
It’s all change in the indie department once again. Your five offerings today are Avadon: The Black Fortress, Dungeons of Dredmor, Q.U.B.E., Vessel, and Zombie Driver.
The Humble Indie Bundle V, which offered a fantastic package including Psychonauts, Bastion, and Limbo, amassed 598,972 purchases at a total of $5,106,652.68.
The average amount paid was $8.53, and as per usual Linux users were the most generous, followed by Mac users, and then the PC masses.
Just in case you haven't already bought it, Humble Indie Bundle V is fast approaching its final day of sales. And, more importantly, it's easily the best bundle yet.
Beating the average price of £5.41 will net you:
And you can support two great charities. Basically, get on this, and do it now. Before it's too late.
Indie fans rejoice! The Because We May massive indie sale is live, with participating developers discounting their game across the likes of Steam, iOS, and Google Play, as well as their own sites, to celebrate retail platforms that give them the freedom of flexible pricing.
The sale will last for a week, from May 24th through to June 1st, and you can find out more right here.
What are you still doing here? Go buy some awesome indie games. Do it. Do it NOW!
Super Meat Boy, the character not the original game, will be coming soon to touchscreens near you! Team Meat announced that work has begun on a touchscreen game, but that it'll look vastly different to the original title, and play rather differently too.Click here to read more...
It's February 29th... which isn't something I get to say very often. To celebrate this four-year occurrence, Get Games are holding a massive sale for a huge number of games. So for completeness' sake, I've rounded up the whole damn thing right here for your convenience!
Highlights include Sonic Generations for under £7, Frozen Synapse for £3.75, Explodemon for £3.99, Red Orchestra 2 for £8.49, Renegade Ops for £3.49, Super Meat Boy for £3.39, the Oddboxx for £3.89... there are just so many great deals here. A couple of duds (Napoleon: Total War amongst them), but otherwise, get on this before March!
Team Meat have slammed Nintendo's file size allowance on WiiWare, branding the 40MB allowance for uploads as "horrible".
"Super Meat Boy would have been on WiiWare if we could have had just a few more megabytes of space," said Team Meat’s Tommy Refenes.Click here to read more...
Team Meat co-founder Edmund McMillen has revealed that the studio are looking into the possibility of bringing acclaimed platformer Super Meat Boy to mobile platforms such as Android and iOS in some form, and are already dabbling with tech and testing out prototypes.
"We are currently developing tech for the next game that might be a touch remake of Super Meat Boy for both [iOS and Android] platforms mentioned," he explained.
"If we end up doing it it won't be anything like the version people are familiar with but something new that embodies the SMB spirit."Click here to read more...
Is this the best Bundle yet? Possibly. Between Shank, Super Meat Boy, Bit.Trip Runner, Jamestown and NightSky HD that's an awful lot of win. Thank you Humble Bundle, and a Merry Christmas to you too!
Once again, it's a case of pay what you think is right, with proceeds split between the developers, charities Child's Play and the American Red Cross, and Humble Bundle themselves. Moreover, if you pay above the average (currently $5.36), you'll get Cave Story+ and Gratuitous Space Battles.
I've already bought mine, have you?
It's Friday, Friday, gonna post some deals on Friday... wait, no it isn't. Still, Black Friday gives retailers a great excuse to make with some major savings, and Microsoft have slashed a number of Arcade games down to size. From what I can see, the best value is to be found with the exceptional Super Meat Boy, Outrun, Fancy Pants Adventure and Flotilla - all of which are at least half price. Click the links to head over to the browser marketplace, where you can queue up downloads or trial versions. We've also linked to our reviews where applicable.
There'll probably be more to come over the next few days. We'll keep you posted, and let us know if you've spotted something we missed!
Steam are celebrating Super Meat Boy's first PC birthday with a big fat bundle. As well as the game and soundtrack, you'll get...
...the entire BEAT.TRIP series, World of Goo, Braid, Gish, Aquaria, VVVVVV, Machinarium, Half Life 2 and OSTs for pretty much all of them.
So, might be worth a punt, then.
Last week marked a full year since the astounding (and astoundingly difficult) Super Meat Boy hit Xbox Live Arcade, and Team Meat are planning all manner of festivities to celebrate their boy's first birthday. According to the official blog, they're in talks with Microsoft to arrange a major discount for the XBLA version next month as well as a massive new level pack. As if wasn't good enough value already!
Despite loudly complaining about Microsoft's treatment to anyone who'll listen (and being taken to task by other Indie devs), Team Meat plan to patch things up and put the past behind them to "do what is best for SMB and the fans." We're glad to hear it, because whilst Microsoft's indie policies have plenty of room for improvement, Team Meat has definitely come out of the collaboration with major profits and one hell of a game.
