The Cheapskate's Corner 13 (Aug 9th-15th)

Well, the interesting thing about the Introversion Humble Bundle is that it comes with the sources for their games.
Theoretically, anyway. To register for SVN access, I need an account on their forums (WTF!). Their forums sends out an activation email, which I'm not getting (at least not after now 15 minutes; maybe caught up in the greylisting?). I did get a mail badgering me into subscribing to their mailing list, though...

Jacob's Island looks interesting; I just wish it was more of a game, with actual choices, than just a visual novel where all you do is click next.

Wasteland 2 has been delayed but there is still some good news

Yes, there was a Kickstarter for a new Torment game (not in the Planescape setting, though, but using Monte Cook's new Numenera system): http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/torment-tides-of-numenera

The PayPal store is still open, I think: https://torment.inxile-entertainment.com/store

I missed the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter too.
It is one of the reward of the Torment Kickstarter for me, though, into which I blew more money than I actually had (me on my shoestring budget); but I just loved PS:T to death. At first, I wasn't that interested about Wasteland 2, but the more I hear/see/read, the more I'm actually getting psyched about that game.

Indie Game The Movie won't be on steam for linux just yet

I'll join the general "Barf, Adobe Air" sentiment.

What's "moderately or very nearsighted" in dioptre?

I guess there's no way to get them specific to your eyesight? Because just a generic "nearsighted" eyepiece is pretty much bullshit. Hell, even throw-away bulk contact lenses come in 100 flavours and everyone knows they're still suboptimal.

But how well does the surround sound setup work with you moving your head around?

Also: How does the Oculus Rift feel/work for people with glasses? Do you have a gap somewhere in your vision when you put the Rift one? Does it press the glasses tightly (painfully?) against your face? Do you have to fear your lenses getting scratched?

Satellite Reign kickstarter launched

Well, I also don't really get why Kickstarter doesn't support PayPal either. I mean, Indiegogo does do PayPal, for example.
