Hey there, just wanted to post that I’m looking to give away a Steam key for Black Ops III: Multiplayer Starter Pack to someone in the comments. It was part of the Humble Monthly bundle, but I already have the full game. Once redeemed you can upgrade to the full version of Black Ops III for a discounted price through Humble Bundle as well.
I’ll pick someone later this evening. If this doesn’t get any comments I’ll give it out on Twitter (@AVideoGameLife).
There’s a new Humble Bundle available for purchase now, this time it’s a Double Fine bundle featuring Costume Quest, Psychonauts, Stacking and Brutal Legend (if you pay more than the average purchase / donation price). A donation of at least $1 will get you a Steam code to download the three primary games, while paying more than $8.06 (as of this posting) will get you Brutal Legend (and its soundtrack). There are two additional payment levels this time, with $35 getting you a pre-order of Broken Age and $70 getting you a t-shirt in addition to the previous items.
I have never played any of the games and figured I’d give them a try. I have to admit, I was a little cheap this time around and only donated $1. I decided to allocate all 100 pennies to Double Fine (you can choose how much goes to charity, the developer(s) and Humble Bundle, Inc.). I look forward to trying out some new games and am especially happy that they’re all available for Mac. My Mac’s Steam Library is pretty empty and I don’t often boot to Windows 8 anymore to access my Windows only Steam games.
To date 33,000 people have raised over $268,000,000 through Humble Double Fine Bundle.
So I just found out about the THQ Humble Bundle today and I’m glad I did because there are only three days left to take advantage of this great offer. If you haven’t heard of Humble Bundle, basically they usually take a collection of indie games and let you name your own price and even name how much of that money goes to each developer, the two charities (Child’s Play and The American Red Cross for this bundle) and the people behind Humble Bundle (to help pay for their bandwidth and other expenses).
I purchased Humble Bundle 2 and 3 which included games such as Braid and Cogs. The THQ bundle, however, features a rather large collection of well known, full retail games.
If you pay more than the average donation (which was around $5.61 when I made my purchase) you get all of the games below:
Saints Row 3 (bonus if you beat the average donation)
Company of Heroes (and DLC packs)
Red Faction Armageddon (and DLC)
You can download these games direct or through Steam (via Steam product keys that are unlocked after your donation of $1 or more). In addition to these games you also get the soundtracks to several of the games in either FLAC or Mp3 format, which is a nice bonus.
Pretty sweet deal for as little as $6. Of course the goal of the Humble Bundle is to raise money for charity (and in the case of the Indie Humble Bundles, to raise money and awareness for indie developers) so it’s certainly encouraged to give more than the bare minimum (you can donate as little as $1 if you choose, but then you miss out on Saints Row 3).
Remember, you only have about 3 days left to take advantage of this amazing offer! Head over to http://humblebundle.com to get a great deal on this THQ collection and donate to a great cause!
If you don’t know what the ‘Humble Bundle‘ is, let me briefly explain. It’s a bundle of indie games where YOU decide what you pay for a bundle of 5 quality games and the money goes to charity (EFF and Child’s Play) and the game developers. Not only do you decide what you pay, you also decide how much of what you pay goes to charity and how much goes to the developers.
The Humble Bundle is always a great deal, but Humble Bundle 6 looks to be one of the best yet, mainly because it includes Torchlight. When Torchlight first came out on the PC it was $20 for early supporters and something like $30 after that (I believe). It also sold for $15 on Xbox Live Arcade and was well worth it. Torchlight is a single player game that’s very similar to Diablo and Diablo II and is actually developed by a lot of guys who worked on Diablo.
In addition to Torchlight you get 4 other games with any contribution. The titles are Rochard, Shatter, S.P.A.Z., and Vessel. However if you pay more than the average contribution (currently $5.71) you get a 6th title, Dustforce.
The games are DRM free, multiplatform, and are also available through Steam (with a contribution of at least $1).
You also get the soundtracks for 5 of the games with your contribution.
