Sunless Sea, Else Heart.Break() In Humble Indie Bundle

While Brendan skipped around gaily like a cyberkid in a cybercandy shop, hacking that candy to receive godlike powers, John was less enamoured with Else Heart.Break(). If you were torn between those two opinions and passed over the sandbox RPG when it came out last year, hey, it’s in the latest Humble Bundle. It’s a mega-bargain, also offering Sunless Sea, Trine 3, Door Kickers, and more for as little as £6.

Humble Ubi: Grow Home, Gunslinger And Rayman For $1

The hours I’ve spent with XCOM 2 were enough to silence my inner-cynic for a while. It’s the king of sequels. Nothing sets him off on one of his diatribes quite like a Big Publisher Bundle though. What better place is there to cast off all of those unwanted spin-offs and fifteenth entries in series that became stale years ago than a cheap compilation package? What a surprise, then, to find that Ubisoft’s Humble Bundle packs in three of the company’s best recent releases in the $1 or more tier. Grow Home, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger and Rayman: Origins for the price of a croissant.

XCOM And Civ Aplenty In Humble Firaxis Bundle

While Adam is larking about in XCOM 2, I’m replaying XCOM: Enemy Within to demonstrate how totally fine and unbothered I am that he has access and I don’t. It’s still really fun! Last night I ordered a cyberlady to punch a robodino so hard it exploded.

If you want to join in with not feeling bitter, the latest Humble Bundle is a cracker. It’s a big merry load of cheap Firaxis strategy games, with your XCOMs and your Civilizations and your Pirates! and your Starships and so on for not very much money at all. We can all be unbothered together.

Her Story & Roundabout In FMV-tastic Humble Bundle

$5 for Her Story and Roundabout is a right bargain, so I’d heartily recommend the full motion video-tastic latest Humble Weekly Bundle for those alone. Her Story’s a crime mystery told through recordings of interview footage (see its Advent calendar entry, Adam’s Wot I Think, and our spoiler-filled discussion), while Roundabout is a delightful driving game with a constantly-revolving limousine and a charming silly story filled with FMV and stock footage (check out our Wot I Think). Good games!

On top of those two, the bundle also offers another eight FMV-laden games, including loads of futuregumshoe Tex Murphy. Not too shabby! Well, Tex himself is shabby. That trenchcoat must smell like a dead dog by now. The bundle’s good, I mean.

Humble Offers Peeks At Upcoming Monthly Bundles

I’d not grumble if the Whisky of the Month Club gave me a whisky I’d already drank – though I wouldn’t be best pleased if it were the whisky I’d already drank. I’d be less thrilled with a video game subscription service sending me games I’d already bought, and have skipped over the Humble Monthly Bundle. But if you have been interested, here’s a thing: it’s become a touch less opaque. Each month, Humble will reveal one game from the upcoming mystery bundle, and let folks pay their $12 straight away to unlock that one game now then get the rest later. The first’s a doozy: Alien: Isolation.

Humble Bundle Celebrates Neo Geo’s 25th Birthday

There are two things in life which make me feel old: how long it now takes me to locate my year of birth when filling in online forms (I have to scroll down SO far), and videogame anniversaries. Can you believe that SNK’s Neo Geo console is a quarter of a century old? Well it is, and Humble Bundle are marking the occasion with the Humble Neo Geo 25th Anniversary Bundle, which includes classics such as Metal Slug 2 and Fatal Fury Special.

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.
