You're the vice president of the world. I know, I'm as surprised as you are.

You're taking a couple of weeks off from your busy job to visit the rural town you grew up in, but there are some strange things going on. Someone's filled the local woods with weird experiments -- odd, twisted creatures like a bear made of honey and eagles sporting glorious flowing blonde hair. This isn't right, and as the people's elected representative, all eyes are on you -- you need to do something about it.

Steam, Schmeam: the Super Shock Bundle offers 13 indie games for $13

If you can tear yourselves away from the Steam sale counter for just a minute, we bring news of a different sort of countdown, for the perhaps aptly named Super Shock Bundle. You're probably rolling your eyes right now at the presence of yet another indie bundle, but here's why you should consider rolling them back, as painful as that might be: the Super Shock Bundle will feature thirteen games, including VVVVVV, Home, Thirty Flights of Loving, Probability 0 and Cortex Command. The other thing to consider is that the offer's only open for seven of your Earth hours, starting today at 5PM UK time (that's 12PM Eastern Standard Time).
