Sorry, it seems that I've been slacking off the shooter promise for a bit. Let's get back to work with the next F.E.A.R. installment.

Broken Age: Act 1

Broken Age is the game that, for the longest time, was known as the Double Fine Adventure. Unfortunately the man behind all of this, Tim Schafer, cannot get publisher funding for a game to save his life. It was Kickstarted a long time ago, and it did well. So well that it made crowdfunding a viable method of fundraising for... pretty much everything.

Now I've played a game, that as far as I know, is the only game that has 'sold out' on Steam. Others have been taken down, mostly due to dubious quality and to EA being a dick, but this is a special case. OK, wow, I had no clue that the list was that long.

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin

I'm just going to get this out of the way up front: it looks like I'm going to be playing a lot of shooters, and I've already started. In that same Humble Bundle that had F.E.A.R., it also had the others in the series, so I'm more or less just going down the line.
