Humble bundle
« on: August 21, 2013, 09:10:19 PM »

For those who doesn't know, Humble Bundle is a website that sells videogame bundles for the price you want to give, starting with 1$. All the money you give goes to charity, the game developers (usually, the bundles consists in various games from the same company) or the site itself.

In this topic, we'll discuss the bundles that worth the money or not.

Here's the link for the website

iirc, you're not supposed to advertise other sites on the forums.

or at least that rule was here at some point.

Currently you can get a ton of highly rated EA games for about $5. I wouldn't make this a promotion thread for the site though. Maybe a place to mention a really good deal going on. There's a fine line between promoting and advertising, and it's probably better to avoid either altogether.

I don't intend to promote the site, all I want is to make known a great deal for you guys, if you're interested in games...
It's not advertisement, it's just, well, promoting something good for you, if you are interested in games...

It'd just be better to have a link to the site, a short description, and then maybe an update about what games are currently being featured and the general average paying price. Then the thread could be to discuss whether or not the bundle is worth getting, or who is getting it for the option of multiplayer.

This week's bundle:

The Humble "Origin" Bundle:

-Dead Space
-Dead Space 3
-Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
-Crysis 2: Maximum Edition
-Mirror's Edge
-Medal of Honor (2010)


Extras:
-The Sims 3 Starter pack (The Sims 3 + 2 expansions)
-Battlefield 3
-Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising
-Populous


The Humble Weekly Sale (PewDiePie)
-Botanicula
-McPixel
-Thomas was alone
-The showdown effect


Extras:
-Amnesia: The Dark Descent



Well, I never liked Origin, but I think this bundle is the best they ever offered and really worths buying. All the games offered are amazing and they really don't need introduction. But like I said, you need Origin to enjoy them all (for those who doesn't know, Origin is like Steam, but only for EA games). They also give you the Steam codes for almost them, except Battlefield 3, Dead Space 3 and The Sims 3 (something wrong with the number 3?).

About the PewDiePie sale, I didn't bought it, I really don't appreciate those games, except Amesia which is very cool, but I don't think it worths my money...

How much is the Pewdiepie sale, (even though I don't like the LPer), some of the games look really good.

Heh, I already own all of these games.  Except Sims.  Also, because this money goes completely to charity, I think it's okay to let the rule slide this time.  So people, donate to charity!

Its always minimum 1$ :) but if you want Amnesia, you need to give at least the average, which is 2.50$ I think...



EDIT: Just to inform that 2 more games were added to the Humble "Origin" Bundle:

- Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising (Steam and Oring Key)
- Populous
(Only Origin key)

Heh, I still remember when I got Amnesia: TDD and a couple other games from the Humble Indie Bundle... for a penny. But now the minimum is $1... that's a little high, don't you think? :P
