Humble Indie Bundle 17: Lethal League, Nuclear Throne

Humble Bundles come every fortnight nowadays but the Humble Indie Bundle is still a rare treat, something a bit fancier than the rest – the flagship bundle. Numero diecisiete is now upon us (I know – diecisiete already! but it has been six years of HIBs), a pay-what-you-want bundle of games including Lethal League, The Beginner’s Guide, Super Time Force Ultra, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, and Nuclear Throne.

Humble 2K Bundle Offers Spec Ops The Line For A Dollar

The latest offering from Humble Bundle is a stack of 2K games, including third-person horrors-of-war shooter, Spec Ops: The Line [official site] in the lowest tier. That’s yours for a dollar or more but (the horror, the HORROR) you’ll have to take a copy of Duke Nukem Forever as well. The Darkness 2 is the much more palatable final third of that one dollar selection. Jumping to the next tier, with a minimum buy-in of $8.37, gets you a copy of Civ V, NBA 2K16, Mafia II and…a Battleborn skin pack. Civ V is decent, even without the expansions, but I’d be tempted to wait until October for the sequel.

Spec Ops is the star here. At that price, it’s close to unmissable.

New Humble Bundle: Rocket League, Spelunky, Nidhogg

The latest Humble Bundle is a good’un, with games including Spelunky, Rocket League, Nidhogg, and Skullgirls going cheap. The first three of those are modern PC classics, I’d say, and Skullgirls isn’t half-bad either. The Humble Revelmode Bundle has more games too, obvs.

Sonic The Hedgehog’s Humble Birthday Blowout Bundle

Sonic the Hedgehog turns 25 on Thursday, which is a good cause to pull out the interactive photo book and look at how we once were. “Coo, remember when we hadta to fast?” you ask, jabbing at his cute pink belly in the picture. He frowns and tugs unconsciously at his neckerchief – give him a few years. “Ahh and remember when we wantedta go fast?” you ask, leafing through more pages. “Then… then we shouldnta gone fast. I’m sorry, I…” You take his gloved hand. “How are you really doing?”

All of which can only mean that Humble Bundle have a load of Sonic games in their latest pay what-you-want dealio. Some of them are quite good!

Her Story, Read Only Memories & Cibele For $1 In Humble Narrative Bundle

Wowee, isn’t this a nice little surprise to help us shake off the Tuesday Wednesday blues? The latest Humble Bundle – Humble Narrative Bundle – has kicked off and, as always, the first tier is in familiar “pay what you want” format, with Steam keys costing a minimum of $1. Thing is, this particular collection’s premier platform features one-time RPS Game of the Month and FMV Game of 2015 Her Story, cyberpunk retro point-and-clicker Read Only Memories, and Nina Freeman’s lovely semi-autobiographical adventure Cibele. Based on those alone this is probably my favourite bundle yet, but there’s more.

Humble Bundle: Grow Home, Gunslinger, Rayman For $1

The latest Humble Bundle is a repeat of one from February, but it’ll be a mighty wild day when I’m bored by seeing Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, Grow Home, and Rayman Oranges for less than a quid. Only one dollar for the lot! What a bargain! Paying extra can get you games like Far Cry 3 too but dang, each of those ground-level games is a stonker.

Humble Devolver Bundle: Not A Hero, Titan Souls & Talos

The games that fly under publisher Devolver Digital‘s banner are often funny, sometimes silly, and always quirky. Frantic shooter Not A Hero revels in its messy, hedonistic chaos; Dropsy tells the tale of sad, social misfitting clown; and The Talos Principle is a wonderful game about philosophy and mind-boggling puzzles, to name but a few. The Humble Devolver Bundle has them all and more and is live right now.
