EA aren't the general gaming populations favourite company of late, but in spite of their many questionable practices, there is one thing they seem to do quite well and that's their EA Partners publishing program.
Notable releases under the EA Partners banner include the likes of Valve's The Orange Box and Portal 2, the recent Crysis games, Epic's Bulletstorm and ex Call of Duty head's upcoming project with Respawn Entertainment. The program allows independent studios to access some of the marketing and distribution clout of EA while retaining their IP rights.
So in that sense -- despite many publications angrily reporting otherwise this morning -- this "EA Indie Bundle" that just kicked off on Steam is appropriately named, and although it hardly matches the altruism of The Humble Bundle, at 70% off for these six worthwhile games, it's still a pretty good deal.
DeathSpank, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, Gatling Gears, Shank, Shank 2, Warp

The deal supposedly runs until May 10th 2012 and each individual game is 50% off, or the entire collection can be had for US$20.98 (with no Australia tax). Strangely however, there's no equivalent promotion on EA's own Origin store.
