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.

Bundles Ahoy! Lots Of Games We’ve Liked And More

Video games are still stirring from their Yuletide slumber, yawning and stretching, putting their clothes on back-to-front by accident, looking for their keys, and trying to remember how they ever got made. I suppose I’ll tell you about some which are already out and you can buy and play right now. Two pretty respectable bundles are going on at the moment, for those not all spent-out after Christmas sales, including a number of games we’ve enjoyed like Year Walk, Secrets of Raetikon, Eidolon, and Fract OSC.

Interview: Humble Bundles Raise $50 Million For Charity

Humble Bundles have helped raise $50 million for charity since the service’s launch in 2010. That’s a staggering amount of money, raised by people who love games, through a system that let’s people pay what they want. The money has gone to over 25 different charities, to help fund healthcare, bring food and water to those in need, and to help those with disabilities play games – among many, many others.

To mark the occasion, we asked Duncan Geere to have a chat with co-founder John Graham about the charity efforts, what he thinks of Steam curators, and why the future of digital distribution is colosseum deathmatches.

No, Not Boo: The Humble InDIE Bundle

What's scary about being lost and alone in a church with pig carcasses on the altar?

I don’t know what’s scary enough about the ‘Humble InDIE Bundle 13‘ to warrant that extravagant stylisation. Are we to imagine ᴏᴜʀ ʟɪᴍʙs sʜᴀᴛᴛᴇʀɪɴɢ ʜᴏʀʀɪʙʟʏ as we virtually skate in OlliOlli? Will Jazzpunk make us ʟᴀᴜɢʜ ᴏᴜʀsᴇʟᴠᴇs ᴛᴏ ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ? Is the ɪɴᴇᴠɪᴛᴀʙʟᴇ ᴄᴏʀᴘᴏʀᴀᴛᴇ ᴅʏsᴛᴏᴘɪᴀ of Shadowrun Returns meant to be depressing? Do they really think we’re afraid of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’ ʟɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴄᴜʀʟʏ ᴛᴀɪʟs? Are ɢᴜɴs terrifying enough to make you shriek at Tower of Guns? Should we quake at Risk of Rain’s ᴘᴏssɪʙɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴏғ ɪɴᴄʟᴇᴍᴇɴᴛ ᴡᴇᴀᴛʜᴇʀ? Do you fear Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet’s ᴛᴡɪsᴛʏ ᴛʜɪɴɢs? Is DIE a promise or a threat?
