My lethal pony – Equestria-aping fighting game Them’s Fighting Herds out this month


I’m not altogether sure I enjoy it when something which once caused astounded pointing and giggling later becomes An Actual Real Thing. Case in a point, I’ve got a sneaking feeling I’m going to enjoy Them’s Fighting Herds a lot less once it’s a fully-functioning fighting game installed on my hard drive than I did when it was but a totally unexpected video of suspiciously My Little Ponylike toonimals with football-sized eyes kicking seven bells out of each other.

(Oh, and before you start chanting “four legs good, but only when officially-licensed by Hasbro”, bear in mind that the art design is by the showrunner of the MLP: Friendship Is Magic series.)

It’s due out in less than three weeks, and there’s another one of those ‘this is unbelievable / I can’t believe no-one’s done this before’ trailer to remind us that mortal enmity is magic too.

The Humble Paradox Bundle will net you Stellaris, Crusader Kings 2, Pillars of Eternity and more


What’s your favourite paradox? My current one is ‘how can the many awesome games in The Humble Paradox Bundle 2018 cost so little money?’. Wait, that’s not a paradox – it’s just a really good deal. Looks like I need to finish this news post then head back to paradox school.

Fortunately I won’t need to enrol to enjoy the games on offer here. This bundle has 8 in total, with highlights including Obsidian’s RPG Pillars of Eternity and the surprisingly funny wizard brawler Magicka 2. This is Paradox though, so best of all is the selection of sprawling strategy games. Let’s dive in!

Staxel brings more farm-o-craft antics to early access

It’s typical, eh: you wait ages for a Stardew-o-Harvest-a-Crossing crafty farming daily life sim, then two come along to early access at once. My Time At Portia today delivers a cheery vision of the post-apocalypse, while Staxel here has more of a fairytale vibe and Minecraft-y style, not to mention online multiplayer. Yes, it is weird that neither crafty farmy miner has flinched in this game of chicken. But hey, they’re here now. Let’s peek at Staxel. Read the rest of this entry »

The Humble Care Package Bundle packs Stardew Valley, Her Story and more


It seems IGN’s recent purchase of Humble Bundle hasn’t compromised their ability to put together a pack of awesome games. For the next 5 days, The Humble Care Package Bundle offers 27 games–including Stardew Valley, Darkest Dungeon, and Pony Island–for $30 and all of the money is going to emergency relief charities, which makes this one well worth checking out.

Humble’s Haunted Halloween sale ends this week, surprisingly


With tonight being Devil’s Night – an event that The Crow taught us all occurs the night before Halloween itself and usually involves revenge murders – it’s a pretty good time to stock up on some horror games in order to make the most of the season of spooks.

Over at Humble right now, you can get a bunch of particularly good games with a horror bent, with up to 90% off the range on offer. This sale range is set to finish in a matter of days, so you’ve got a little bit of time to make a decision but if you’d prefer to spend Halloween night scaring yourself stupid, you may want to grab something sooner rather than later.

Humble’s Day of the Devs 2017 is live now with some point & click classics

Humble Day of the Devs 2017

Day of the Devs, for those not in the know, is an event in San Francisco that lets fans meet and talk shop with a bunch of game developers in what usually becomes one big celebration of various nerdoms. This year’s event is taking place on Saturday, 11th November and Humble is celebrating the occasion with a big ol’ Day of the Devs 2017 themed bundle which offers up to $131 worth of games for $9.

In this bundle, you’ll find a handful of point and click classics in their remastered forms, along with some absolute gems of newer indie titles. If you happen to spend $9 (around £6.83) or more, you’ll even get a VIP ticket to the Day of the Devs event itself, if you can make it there. As an added bonus, Humble Monthly subscribers will also get $2 thrown into their Humble wallet to spend at a later date.

Wot I Think: A Hat In Time


Where Yooka-Laylee attempted to revive Rare’s Banjo-Kazooie formula, A Hat in Time [official site] strikes at a different vein of nostalgia. The 3D platformer attempts to split the difference between the open-ended adventuring of Super Mario 64 and the more guided point-by-point platforming of Super Mario Galaxy. The result is a work of obvious grace and imagination that never attempts to rise above its obvious inspirations, but still consistently delivers the same kind of warm fuzzies that its favorite Italian plumber deals in.

Humble’s Female Protagonist sale ends today

her story

In case you missed it last week, Humble has been hosting a sale specifically to celebrate games that feature female protagonists. They’re slyly calling it the Female Protagonist Sale. There’s up to 80% off some proper gems here, but today is your last chance to take a look as the sale is set to end at 6pm (BST) tonight. Read the rest of this entry »

It will blow you away: IGN buys Humble Bundle

This week in gaming has seemingly saved its biggest surprise for last. Humble Bundle, the charity-funding bundle organiser/publisher/online store, today announced that it has been bought by IGN. You know, that video game and movie site. Yup. Weird. Humble say they’ll business will continue as usual, or even better than usual thanks to the resources and help of the Ian Games Network (who are owned by Ziff Davis, who are owned by J2 Global).

Humble adds Limbo, Gone Home, Shadowrun Returns, and more to its Trove line up

Humble Trove September 2017

For those who don’t know, Humble offers a subscription service, appropriately titled ‘Humble Monthly’. For $12 / £10 a month, you get access to a stack of Steam keys each month. The collection of games are only unveiled at the end of each month (save for one early unlock), but are usually valued at around $175, which ain’t too shabby. The Humble Trove is a nice added bonus that subscribers to the service have access to, adding a batch of DRM-free titles to the set of games given out each month.

Humble’s got a Very Positive thing going on right now

Dream Daddy

Not only does Humble currently have its second ‘Very Positive’ bundle going on right now, the site is now listing a separate sale, appropriately titled the ‘Very Positive Sale’. As with the bundle, the sale features a bunch of games all with ‘Very Positive’ or higher ratings on Steam right now, with discounts of up to 80%.

Before you ask, yes, that means you can get Dream Daddy for £9.89 / $13.49. Also featured are things like lovely retro Metroid-like Axiom Verge, perpetual Early Access feudal RPG Kenshi, the Homeworld Remastered Collection, Sniper Elite 4 and more.

We covered the strange adventure possible in Kenshi quite recently. In a year that gave us Divinity: Original Sin 2’s hungry elves and face-stealing undead, it’s astonishing to realise that Kenshi has weirder cannibalistic possibilities than Larian’s latest masterpiece.

Humble Very Positive Bundle 2 available now, featuring Oxenfree, Shadow of War, and more

Humble Very Positive Bundle 2

Have you heard the one about Humble making a new Bundle? It’s a good one. Rather, it’s a Very Positive one.

Following on from the original ‘Very Positive’ Bundle back in May this year, Humble has brought the idea back for another go – in the Humble Very Positive Bundle 2, funnily enough. The collection of games brought together here all feature Steam ratings of ‘Very Positive’ or above and while we can’t always rely on those ratings as proof of a game’s intrinsic qualities, as recent happenings have taught us, rest assured these games are quite good.

New Humble Bundle features Zeno Clash 2, Resi 4, Dead Rising and more

Humble Capcom x Sega x Atlas Bundle b

Humble is back with a brand new bundle – the Humble Capcom X Sega X Atlus Bundle which, for some reason, groups together those three publishers for one big bundle that offers you the chance to pick up games featuring blue hedgehogs, robot arms with stories to tell, FMV silliness, and a mall full of zombies, among other things.

Head over to the main site and you can drop some money on the bundle, with some of the proceeds going to charity as well.

Devil Daggers & free Pony Island in new Humble Bundle

John might tell you that the highlight of the bargain Humble Bundle is a free copy of Pony Island, an “Oh I’d tell you what it is but even that would be giving too much away” game he declared the smartest game of 2016. Me, I’m here to tell you that the bargain bundle’s highlight is actually Devil Daggers, a deadly fast score attack FPS which feels like it escaped from an alternate timeline where everything’s all skulls and satans – and is RPS’s actual official Bestest Best game of 2016. Mate, you could have both of those — and more — for just a couple of quid. Mega-deal! Read the rest of this entry »

Humble Saints Row Bundle has other games too

The new Humble Saints Row Bundle is only about 50% Saints Row, puffed out with rusk and a little spice, but that’s a legally acceptable ratio for sausages and I suppose will do for a pay-what-you-want bundle of video games. It’s more like a Humble Deep Silver Bundle but shops don’t go calling pork sausages ‘pork, water, and rusk sausages’ either. If you’ve somehow avoided picking up the splendid Saints Row open-world silly crimefests before: 1) welcome to the Internet! it’s okay but watch your step; 2) you can now get them nice and cheap. They are fun video games. Read the rest of this entry »

Humble selling best Telltale games for 15 smackeroos

Oh boy, have we got sales news for you, vast gaping maw of collective consumerism. Isn’t it a beautiful day for buying things? The Humbler Bundlers have put together a bunch of Telltale’s better games for $15. Yes, everyone has probably already got their critically acclaimed zombies ‘n’ conversation games based on the Walking Dead. But has everybody got Batman? Has everybody got Game of Thrones? Has everybody got…

Humble Bundle packs Dead Rising, Resident Evil & DmC

The latest Humble Bundle is crammed with Capcom content for savvy bargaineers who fancy killing demons and zombies. The star game for me is 2013’s DmC: Devil May Cry, which can be had for less than a quid, though I suppose some folks would be far more excited about all the Dead Risings and Resident Evils. It’s a decent bundle, which you have another 13 days to grab. Read the rest of this entry »
