The latest Humble Bundle is well worth a look with a bunch of premium PC games (no shovelware this time!) for $20 or less.

Never seen any shovelware form HB... always been good stuff. Just remember, not everyone has your tastes... ;)

But otherwise, yes, great pack today, Bioshock,Bioshock 2, Mafia 2 and so on... will look at grabbing it.

I might be tarring them with Bundlestars' brush. That Simulator Bundle they have just now is atrocious. Apart from the Trainz games every other one that I looked at has mostly negative reviews on Steam. Duds cashing in on the current fad for Sim games.

Humble don't usually have such recent and high-profile games as this current bundle though so I thought it worth noting.

I purchased the Simulator Bundle just to give Warehouse and Logistics Simulator 2014 a go... wow is all I can say. Shovelware (or forkliftware in that case) is an under statement for the vast majority of that pack. But hey, for less than a fiver I'm not going to moan too much.
