Humbly I present to you, our bundle of readers, this week’s Humble Weekly Bundle. It concerns seven games from venerable Brit publisher Codemasters, which are on average Quite Good. Racing! Man-shooting! Very sweary man-shooting! Imp-herding! An ARPG I’ve never played! More racing! More imp-herding!
A minimum pledge of $1 gets you these:
Overlord < << Imp-herding
Overlord Raising Hell (Expansion Pack) <<
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising <<< Man-shooting, not very good
Operation Flashpoint: Red River <<< This the very sweary one, a bit better but still not very good
Rise of the Argonauts <<< This is the ARPG I haven't played
While if you can muster $6 and upwards you get these too:
DiRT Showdown < << Racing
DiRT 3 <<< More racing
Overlord II <<< Even more imp-herding
Depending on how you choose to split your payment, a decent chunk of your cash can go to charity Special Effect, whose sterling work is explained below. Or some/all can go to Codies themselves or the organisers at Humble. Look, I really shouldn’t have to explain this system after all these years.
Here are some trailers, for fear any of my colleagues tell me this post is too short.
