Three to die for
After last time’s rather small package of only one game, it’s nice to see three hit the online space this time: violent 2D side-scrolling brawlers Shank, Shank 2 and comic puzzler Eets are available for no minimum price other than 1 dollar if you want the Steam version as well (so business as usual).

I already played the first two games on the Xbox 360, and they were simply a lot of fun, especially in co-op (at least the original, as the sequel only has a battle arena multiplayer option). Granted they’re very repetitive and unfair at times, but with so much over-the-top bloodshed on screen, some very nice background graphics, smooth animations, it’s easy to forgive their shortcomings. Eets seems great as well, because it looks like a crossover between Lemmings and The Incredible Machine, both series I played to death in the early 90ies when I started my PC gaming.

It’s also nice to have the brawlers’ soundtracks as well (too bad though to miss out on the other title), so despite Shank already having appeared in Humble Bundle 4 and the sequel in No. 7, there’s no denying that it’s an essential purchase for anyone who missed them. There’s still time to decide ’til next Friday, but why wait and not have some bloody fun this weekend with the bundle now?
