Is there going to be a spring Steam sale? Or has Valve finally elected to give its wearied money counters – their abacuses gnarled and gnawed on, fear and desperation write large on waxen wood – a brief respite? I’m not entirely sure it matters now, though, as Humble has elected to fire the first shot with a sale of its own, and it’s off to a damn impressive start. Check it out for deep discounts on games like South Park: The Stick of Truth, Batman: Arkham Origins, Broken Age, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, and Thief. Tons more below.
The Humble Spring Sale includes hundreds of discounts and will also bring daily flash sales. It will run until May 21st. There really is a staggering amount on sale here, though the Humble Store’s rather abysmal organization options make it tough to sort through. Many of the best deals are on the first page, but not all of them.
In addition to the games listed above, standouts include Sir, You Are Being Hunted from Jim Rossignol, Sir You Are Being Hunted from Jim Rossignol, Sir, You Are Being Hunted from Jim Rossignol, SIR YOU ARE BEING HUNTED FROM JIM ROSSIGNOL, AND–
Kidding. RPS neither supports nor endorses the handsome brigand Jim Rossignol, nor do we dress up as him and take pictures of ourselves for the newspaper when J. Jonah Jameson comes knocking.
For real, though, my personal highlights are Eldritch, Kentucky Route Zero, System Shock 2, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Antichamber, Darksiders 2, and Natural Selection 2. All of those are nearly half off or more, and that’s just the beginning of the list. Admittedly, a lot of the non-front-page games are older, but there’s still a ton here to dig into.
Have you bought anything yet? If so, what’s your haul looking like?
