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?

Near-Total War: The Humble Total War Bundle

This is Rome II, this one.

War! Huah! What is it good for? Well, lately I find the song that mass bloodshed inspired gives me a fun creative exercise as I open post after post quoting those lyrics then need to somehow make it work. This is the one where I go a bit meta, yeah? Kicking the fourth wall square in its cobbles, huh?

What’s Total War [official site] good for? A lark! The Creative Assembly have worked for over fifteen years on the series combining turn-based strategy with real-time tactics, and you can pick up a fair chunk of it on the cheap in the latest Humble Bundle.

Tom Clancy’s Humble Tom Clancy Bundle Is Good

Humble Bundles normally pass me by these days, but this week’s Humble Tom Clancy Bundle, is worth a second look.

Pay over the average of $8.09 (£5.29) however and you also get Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Splinter Cell, and Splinter Cell Conviction.

Less Patriot Games, more Pay-What-You-Want Games, eh? Eh?
