Humble Store starts selling keys for Epic Games Store

The Epic Games Store is no longer the only place to buy its exclusives, as the promised partnership with the Humble Store has begun. You can now buy Epic keys for Metro Exodus and Dangerous Driving from Humble, as well as pre-order Borderlands 3 (you know better than to pre-order, of course). These still run through the Epic Games Launcher on an Epic account, so…

Humble Store’s new sale is DRM-free (well, with optional Steam keys)

"Should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice, 'We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on, we're going to survive,'" the great patriot Benjamin Franklin famously declared. "They may take our lives,…

Humble Store launches its own winter sale

Now is the winter of our discount content, as yet another store has launched a big winter sale. With Steam and GOG now hibernating in nests of blankets, tangerines, and chocolate coins after ending theirs [update: oh god, GOG have ANOTHER one? Please, go to sleep. I'm worried.], it's the Humble Store's turn to discount a great many games. Humble's a bit of a cross…

Humble Store spring sale gives Dungeons 2 away free

Spring has sprung and Humble have got deals, hun. Their big spring sale has launched with discounts on thousands of games and, for the next day-and-a-bit, free copies of Dungeons 2 for all.

Humble Summer Sale Kicks Off With Free Tropico 4

"We're cool for the summer," sang Demi Lovato in a song that is definitely not about, as some scurrilous pop culture commentators would have you believe, smooching (or WORSE!). No, Demi is singing about paying full-price for video games. It's cool for the summer but what then? What comes next? The answer is: the Humble Store End of Summer Sale. They've got over 3,000 games…

Humble Store’s Winter Sale Is On

Though most download-a-game stores ran their "winter sales" around Christmas and New Year, it is very much still winter now. I spent half my weekend climbing up and falling down snowy hills ↑ and have the bruises to prove it. It's now the time of the Humble Store to roll up snowmen, conceal gravel in snowballs, and stomp out giant snowdicks in the park, and…

We Are Saleing: Humble Store ‘Winter’ Sale Now On

Look, Humble. I'm concerned. You're a decent, polite store and I dig what you do, yet I notice you're following that ruffian GOG into seasonal anarchy. I know, I know, they seemed so pleasant but look where you both are now: ignoring the supreme power of the Sun and launching 'Winter Sales' even though the winter solstice isn't for another ten days. Did you even…

Birthdays And Holidays: GOG And Humble Sales

It's been a long game-summer. We've met loads of new games and formed new game-friendships that'll surely last forever--I'll call every weekend--but now it's time to settle down for a long game-autumn, foraging for game-nuts to stash. Rather than be down about this, GOG and the Humble Store are seeing summer off with big sales. GOG are celebrating their sixth birthday, while Humble just want…

Picking Up Steam: Humble Launches Full Storefront

Well, this all feels a bit inevitable, doesn't it? After oodles, kaboodles, and toaster strudels of bundles - not to mention "store" functionality utilized by many indie developers - Humble Bundle has finally launched a full-blown storefront, ala Steam or GOG. It's not pay-what-you want, but ten percent of every sale goes straight to charity. Also, excellent deals are the order of the day, with…
