It's all coming back to me. That time Valve got me to spend an entire weekend trying to find potatoes in independent games. Those of you who missed out on the infamous sale that morphed into something much more substantial now have another opportunity to nab those games in the Potato Sack Reunion.
Presumably there is no alternate-reality game this time around, but that's probably for the best considering how some people reacted to the last one. $19.99 gets you a respectable line-up of games, which I will now include here in the post because one of you is going to yell at me otherwise.
The list: 1... 2... 3... KICK IT! (Drop That Beat Like an Ugly Baby), AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, AudioSurf, BIT.TRIP BEAT, Cogs, Defense Grid: The Awakening, Killing Floor, RUSH, Super Meat Boy, The Ball, The Wonderful End of the World, and Toki Tori. Phew!
Of course, if you'd rather not purchase all of these titles, you can still get them individually for half price. Steam has also got F.E.A.R. 3 marked down to $8 right now, which seems like the exact type of game one would buy to balance out the aforementioned indie selection.
