Humble’s Arma 2018 Bundle offers military sim for cheap

Bohemia Interactive's Arma series remain almost uncontested as the games to own if the idea of realistic infantry combat tickles your fancy. The only barriers to entry have really been your willingness to deal with a game that prioritises realism over entertainment, the need for a relatively powerful PC, and the not-insignificant cost of the game itself. The Humble Arma 2018 Bundle fixes a third…

Bundle Me Up: GOG Sale Starts With RPGs & Adventures

If you're one for ye olde RPGs, I imagine you're neck-deep in Pillars of Eternity at the moment. But maybe you don't have £35 spare, or you don't consider dozens of hours of RPG good value for money (or who knows what else?). In either case, hey, look: GOG have a bundle of olde RPGs on sale for £14.80, including Planescape: Torment, Neverwinter Nights 1…

System Shock 2, To The Moon & More In Bargain Bundle

People ask me, "Alice, will you post about any sale which has System Shock 2 cheap?" And I reply, "Well, yeah, obvs. Have you played it yet? It's fine if you haven't. You might want to play it. Even our John didn't play it until 2013, you know." Hey, look, the latest Bundle Stars dealio has SS2 and seven other games including To The Moon,…

Don’t Just Stand There, Etc: The STALKER Bundle

Discounts on the STALKER trilogy (which seems like the wrong way to categorise the series somehow, but never mind) tend to wheel around pretty often, but this is particularly good deal for the whole set. There a certain games which are buried deep in RPS' DNA, and the semi-open world, post apocalyptic survival/horror/action STALKER is one of them. If you haven't played them, you are…

HTML Marks The Spot: The Pirate Bay Bundle

If you're as old as I am, you may well remember shareware compilation discs. On the other hand, if you're as old as I feel after a weekend navigating a showfloor packed with 12 year old streamers, you probably remember a time when most games were crafted out of human bones. But forget the bones, let's talk about the discs for a moment. They were…

The Kingdoms Bundle Is Strategically Impressive

The extent of my knowledge and understanding of strategy games is the breadth of smile they create on little Adam Smith's cherubic face. So glancing at Bundle Stars' Kingdoms Bundle, I could see a lovely, warm grin. For £2.18 you get Europa Universalis III Complete, Europa Universalis: Rome Gold Edition, The King's Crusade, Hearts Of Iron III, Sword Of The Stars Complete Collection, and Magicka.

Brazilian Bundle: Super BR Jam

There was a time when I spent most of my day posting about bundles, to the extent that I didn't actually play any new games at all. I'd just list the contents of whatever bundle landed in my inbox, embed a video and check that the 'pay what you want' offer actually let people submit less than a dollar. Then I'd hit the publish button…

Spread The Love: Pixeljam’s Pay What You Want Bundle

Pixeljam won the inaugural Colonel J Trousers Award For Excellence In Audiovisual Advertisements. The blustery ancient was so pleased by this excellent study in rural family life that some say a solitary tear crawled out from behind his monocle, although it swiftly hopped back behind the cataract-buttresses for fear of shaming the old buffer. To celebrate the availability of a Pixeljam bundle, including Dinorun and…

Run, Don’t Trundle, To The New Bundle In A Box

Oops, we very nearly missed the boat on the latest Bundle In A Box, which ends within approximately 10 hours of the time of writing. If you fancy a pay-what-you-want grab-bag of lesser-known indie curios and delights, you should get on that right away. Dinner Date and Phantasmaburbia are perhaps the best-known of the main contents, though really I'm on board for anything called Necrotic…

Indie Royale’s Evolved Bundle Emerges Onto Land

Bundle bundle bundlenews! Indie Royale have launched their latest, hoping to soak up the cash for another collection of out-turned pocketed developers. This time it's the Evolved Bundle, because, um, they've called it that. And it's a good-un. In there you've got the utterly splendid puzzler Unmechanical from Talawa Games (check out our review), Tale Of Tales' super-creepy The Path, Fatshark's latest, Krater, Turtle Cream's…

Latest Indie Royale Bundle Has Indie Games In It

As opposed to not-indie games. Apparently there's controversy when bundles aren't indie, though I'd appreciate the ill sentiment more if Indie Royale did it, what with the whole indie in the title thing. Anyway: the line-up for the Indie Royale Winter package is Greed Corp, Hamlet, BIT.TRIP Runner (isn't that in everything now?), Conquest of Elysium 3, Leave Home and They Breathe. Seeing as I…

Indie Royale Crams Dream Machine Into Stuffing Bundle

The Indie Royale returns with The Stuffing Bundle, which makes me think of stockings brimming with gifts rather than breadcrumbs and sage shoved inside a carcass cavity. My headline-dominating opinion is that the three released chapters of The Dream Machine are the stand-out content and on this very site you can read what John and I said about the game in the dwindling days of…

Hats Off: Indie Buskers 2 Bundle

Earlier this year, a collection of game developers formed a loose collective called The Indie Buskers. Taking requests from the shouting face of the internet, each of them coded a game in 48 hours and the results were released in a bundle of the 'pay what you want' variety. Well, the buskers are back with new games and, as with the last event, the ideas…

Cheap And Fearful: Bundle Of The Damned

Groupees have a bundle of Halloween gaming for your perusal. It's actually more seasonal than the ongoing Indie Royale collection, primarily because this one contains a game called Manor of the Damned, which is exactly the sort of name Halloween entertainment should have. Psychological, nuanced horror is for every other day of the year. Disappointingly, Manor of the Damned is a retro ARPG rather than…

A Pathological Inclusion: Indie Royale Halloween Bundle

This is incredibly unfair to the other games in Indie Royale's Halloween Bundle but the reason everyone should buy it is because Pathologic is in there. Ice-pick Lodge's disease-ridden horror story takes place in one of the most bizarre and fascinating environments ever crafted, and the game is either brilliantly and intentionally brutal or beguilingly broken. Probably both. For what is just shy of £3.00…

Humble Rumbles Anew: PWYW Torchlight, Vessel, SPAZ

Somehow bearing the numeral '6' after it, despite there having been at least 40,000 Humble Bundles by this point, the latest in the wildly successful series of pay-what-you-want indie grab-bags is go right now. Torchlight is the headliner, which is some funny timin' what with the sequel being pretty darn close now, and it has sterling support from Rochard, Space Pirates And Zombies (aka SPAZ),…

Rangers, Princesses, Spies, Aliens: Indie Gala 7

I don't think I said 'bundle' more than once a year before Humble got fused to the front of the word and started the never before known phenomenon of selling similar things in conjunction with one another. Indie Gala 7 contains Rig'n'Roll, Space Rangers and Reign: Conflict of Nations, with a fourth game added next week, but paying over the average also adds Death to…

Bundles Of Sun: Indie Royale With RPGs

The latest Indie Royale Bundle is a horrific reminder of boats filled with people made out of money floating down a river in the rain. It's called the July Jubilee Bundle you see, but even though I'm loathe to be reminded of that drizzly decadence, I'm quite excited by these games. The standout, for me, is the Geneforge Saga. Five excellent Spiderweb RPGs, normally quite…
