Cool, I will respond with mine when I can get home and check. It may be several days before I can play again unfortunately though.

I'm liking the game so far, but for some reason I find the menu interface more clunky compared to B1. I also wish the backpack was bigger. I filled mine up within just a couple hours of playing and really need to drop the hoarder mentality.

Two things:
A) Pinball FX 2 Marvel tables are 50% off. I grabbed the Avengers pack for $5. Worth it.
B) There's a new humble indie bundle: http://www.humblebundle.com/

For people that have bought the Humble Bundle before, did you ever buy before they added more incentive games? I donated before they added more games, so I'm curious if I can just login and get those extras, or if I need to donate again/more.

You're granted the new games... There is no need to double-down on your donation.

Sweet! Do I just login to the humble bundle website or Steam?

Seems like Resident Evil 6 is getting mainly mixed reviews and even the positive reviews mention that the game has a lot of issues.

Given what I'd previously heard about the game this isn't a surprise but I'm still a little sad based on how awesome some of the older games were. I'll probably still pick it up eventually but most likely at $30 and not $60.

Which RE game(s) would you suggest?

My two favorites are RE4 and the original RE that was completely remade for the gamecube (and also released on Wii). The other old ones don't hold up as well graphically so you'll lose more if you go back and play them.

RE5 is the only modern console one and it wasn't my cup of tea. It was still a decent game but far too actiony and not enough horror. It was mainly just an an unmemorable game to me.

Cut scene things are terrible for games >.>

That being said RE5 was good times when played on the hard difficulty without the infinite ammo that was unlockable.

I'd need someone to reliably play with before I consider RE6.
