I see entirely too many hurt feelings today; so eff it, have some free games.


I have my own thoughts on all the happenings of today, but that can wait. I'm going to sleep on it and then write my Recaps first thing in the morning. It won't be entirely pleasant, but I feel like I have to have my saw at some point. Either that, or I'm going to chicken out and talk about video game soundtracks or whatever. It could really go either way.

One thing I do know is that I've had more than enough of today's negativity. I've seen entirely too much disappointment, distrust, disharmony and dis...something. Too many hurt feelings, too much salt. As for me, there's a reason why I usually stay out of things like this. I'm like an emotion sponge, in that I soak up whatever the people around me are feeling. Put me in a fun and energetic environment and I shed my normal shy self in an instant. On the other hand, put me somewhere with rampant negativity, and I'll soak that up too. I can't stand seeing people unhappy. It's one of the "perks" of being an INFJ, I suppose. It's just something that happens. 

- Artist's rendering.

So here's a little contribution to break through that spiral, for my own sake as well as others'. It's not much, but it's the least I can do and I find it to be more productive than going around playing the blame game.

Just for all of you in the Community here, be it FP, Cblogs or forums, I went through my old Humble Bundle pages to find out if I still had good unclaimed games left. Well, I did! More than a dozen, in fact. Most of them because I already owned them when I bought the bundle, some because I didn't care for the game in question. Either way, it doesn't matter why I didn't want them, because now you can have them. I'm giving all of them away on a first-come first-serve basis, with the added caveat that Glowbear and Stevil's picks overrule anyone else's. Unless they both pick the same game, in which case we'll make them fight to the death compete at a children's card game for it.  

Here's the list. There may be some late additions if I can still find some of my older Humble Bundle pages or if I decide to get the current one after all.
If you have your own games that you want to have added to the list, send me a message or leave a comment.

I'mma sleep now, because I'm tired after today. It's the sponge thing.

About ShadeOfLightone of us since 7:43 AM on 07.16.2010

The Dutch one, Grand Marshal of the Nintendo Defense Force, heckler of GajKnight, and zen personified; I am ShadeOfLight, one of your Community Managers .

I'm a Dutch law PhD who loves to play the vidya. I'm a Nintendo-fanboy at heart, and I could play Zelda games continuously from now until the end of time. I also used to be on the Cblog Recaps team for Thursdays, and I did that for 4 whole years.

Next to Zelda I'm also obsessed with the Monolith Soft RPGs Xenoblade Chronicles and the Baten Kaitos series. I will not pass up the opportunity to mention them, ever, and I consider myself to be Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean's biggest fan. I'm fairly certain Monolith Soft exists specifically to make me happy.

Being the good Nintendo fanboy that I am, the Switch is the new love of my life. I'm on a steady course of turning it into a Nintendo + Indies machine, as Iwata intended.

Even a list of my favorite games across all platforms will be dominated by Nintendo and indie, with a few wild cards here and there.

Besides gaming itself, I like reading up on gaming-related news on my favorite website in the whole wide world: Destructoid. I'm pretty much here all the time. I love all the people here, and I'm glad that I get to be a part of this whole thing. Wouldn't know what to do without you!

And it turns out you guys love me too!
I've had some blogs promoted:
- Digital Property: Entering the Third Age
- Better with Age: Batman: Arkham Asylum
- Waifu Wars: Midriff or Bust
- And posted as The Wombat: 2014: I want to make love to you. Seriously.
