Humble Monthly Delivers You Mystery Bundles

Humble, makers of occasionally fine videogame bundles, have just launched Humble Monthly. It’s a subscription service where you pay $12 (around £7.92) per month to have an assorted collection of games delivered to your inbox. The hooks are: Humble curate the games; it’ll include games that haven’t featured in bundles before; and you don’t know what you’re going to get.

Vlambeerian Hockey And Other Treats In Humble Bundle

A minimalist hockey game by one half of Nuclear Throne devs Vlambeer and one of the Action Henk folks, a road trip ‘em up through ’70s Italy, a plant-growing rhythm game, and other special treasures are debuting at Fantastic Arcade, which kicks off today in Austin, Texas. It’d be an awful shame if we at home missed out on those treats so huzzah! The current Humble Weekly Bundle offers new indie curios along with some other goodies and classics like Fez and Hotline Miami.

Near-Total War: The Humble Total War Bundle

This is Rome II, this one.

War! Huah! What is it good for? Well, lately I find the song that mass bloodshed inspired gives me a fun creative exercise as I open post after post quoting those lyrics then need to somehow make it work. This is the one where I go a bit meta, yeah? Kicking the fourth wall square in its cobbles, huh?

What’s Total War [official site] good for? A lark! The Creative Assembly have worked for over fifteen years on the series combining turn-based strategy with real-time tactics, and you can pick up a fair chunk of it on the cheap in the latest Humble Bundle.

Tom Clancy’s Humble Tom Clancy Bundle Is Good

Humble Bundles normally pass me by these days, but this week’s Humble Tom Clancy Bundle, is worth a second look. For whatever fee you fancy you can get Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, Rainbow Six 3, Rainbow Six Vegas, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Ghost Recon and access to the multiplayer beta for Rainbow Six Siege. Pay over the average of $8.09 (£5.29) however and you also get Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Splinter Cell, and Splinter Cell Conviction.

Less Patriot Games, more Pay-What-You-Want Games, eh? Eh?

Pandora For Pennies: Humble Borderlands Bundle

‘Humble’ is not a word I would rush to associate with Borderlands, given the chest-thumping, max-volume mania of 2 and the recent Pre-Sequel, but in this instance it means you can lay hands on the bulk of Gearbox’s FPS/RPG series for few-pennies.

Company Of Waaagh! It’s The Humble Relic Bundle

If we seem cynical and suspicious of the many Warhammer 40,000 games we’ve seen in recent years, it’s because we judge them against the high-water mark of Relic Entertainment’s 40k games. Dawn of War with its real-time strategising, Dawn of War II with its added action-RPG-ish flair, and Space Marine with its head-stomping are as good as we’ve had 40k in recent years. So huzzah! For the next week you can get the lot for just a few quid.

The latest Humble Weekly Bundle focuses on Relic, with a load of Dawn of War, Space Marine, and Company of Heroes games depending on how much you fancy paying. CoH is good too.

Crusader Kings II And More In Humble Paradox Bundle

Fine PC publisher Paradox have joined up with those Humble Bundleers to offer a pay-what-you-want bundle of- hey, haven’t we done this before? So we have! I think this latest Humble Paradox Bundle is better than the first, though.

As ever, you get a selection of games from a list including Crusader Kings II, Magicka, Knights of Pen & Paper, and Europa Universalis IV depending on how much you cough up.

Likeable Roguelikelikes: Humble Roguelike Bundle

Given that one defining characteristic of Rogue, roguelikes, and roguelikelikes is that you can return to them over and over and enjoy a new experience each time, a whole bundle of them sounds like overkill. Well, that or a squillion hours of mirth for only a few quid.

The Humble Weekly Bundle: Roguelikes 2 launched last night with anywhere from three to six roguelikelikes depending on how much you fancy paying. They include the likes of Road Not Taken, Heavy Bullets, The Nightmare Cooperative, and A Wizard’s Lizard.

Square Enix Humble Bundle Is A Curious Grab Bag

Play this! It is, at the very least, an interesting thing. (I like it!)

The Humble Bundle Square Enix Bundle 2 is not a collection of classics, but it is a cheap way to check out some divisive and unpopular games you might be curious about. Sure, I’ve heard bad things about the new Thief but I would like to see for myself. I’m still not sure what Murdered: Soul Suspect was. And man, Kane & Lynch 2 is a game you should be curious about. It’s an interesting bundle, with a few really solid games too. I’ve got the good’uns already, but will probably pick the pay-what-you-want bundle up for its curios.

There Will Be A Bargain: The Humble Star Wars Bundle

I guess I'll be able to immediately recognise the Dark Forces box art until the day I die

Hey cats, it’s hip to like Star Wars again rather than feeling dirty every time it’s mentioned. Of course, once JJ Abrams releases two hours of lens flare and nonsensical deus ex machinas it will be deeply uncool to like Star Wars again, so make hay while the sun shines. Star Wars videogames certainly are: first we get GoG re-releasing a bunch of previously out-of-print titles, and how the latest Humble Bundle is all about games from A Long Time Ago. For whatever you want to pay, you get KOTOR, Jedi Knight 3 and Dark Forces, which ain’t a bad set. There are more games if you want to pay more, but Republic credits are no good out here.
