Re: Humble Bundles

Actually what bothers me is that I knew the days of bundles would subside (they'd have to), and they have. There are now really only two players: Humble Bundle and Fanatical. I used to check for bundles of indie games (which turned into major publishers too) from easily 8-10 different sites a day, and as most have those have died or switched to store-only (Daily Indie Game, Lazy Guys, Indie Royale/Desura, Shiny Loot, Flying Bundle, Bundle in a Box, Indie Game Stand), I moved to buying almost every remaining bundle from Humble, Bundle Stars (Fanatical), Groupees, and Indie Gala. Now Indie Gala is 100% garbage including a number of games by developers that immediately disappear or get kicked off of Steam, and Groupees has dwindled to only occasional Steam bundles where most are not new-to-bundle anymore. Humble is still great but as an IGN company now behaves more as a store than an indie bundle site, but at least they are dependable and generally a good deal. Bundle Stars is now Fanatical and still regularly runs new-to-bundle games that don't suck. The good news is that my obsessive behavior can stop costing me nearly so much money (I now also tend to spend only about $40 per major Steam sale), but there's not as much to discover in the way of surprise indie gems that I'd have never otherwise bought. It is one of those moments where the business of gaming changes the way I game.

There's currently a tabletop bundle, for those that like digital board games.

One word of warning, the Ticket to Ride Complete Bundle does not contain the UK map, even though the steam complete bundle does (which was why I ended up wasting the key. Oops).

Worth it.

It's not a great game but it's an ok game, improving to a decent game if you're a WH40K fan. I bought it on sale and finished it, so if even I think it's worth money and worth playing, then who are you to think otherwise?

Also, free.

It's not going F2P as far as I've ever heard. If you like competitive team shooters and enjoy the art, then it is fantastic. If not, it isn't.

Free games. If you sub you get a lot more but non subs can still grab 9 or so games.

Some of those are typical indy games, but a lot of them are strong games in their own right, that hold up even in 2018.

I'm at the point where I'm like homer taking the Sirloinalot challenge.

I'm so full of unplayed games that you could try pouring free games down my gullet and they would just dribble out the corner of my mouth.

Yes. It is probably the closest to what Dungeon Keeper 3 was supposed to be.

I goofed and forgot to pause again (should probably just cancel and resubscribe). Anyhow, just got billed for this new month (Overwatch, Dungeons 3, Hidden people) and no interest in them.

If anyone want to buy this straight up for the $12, great. Otherwise, probably see what I can piecemeal them out for to recoup some/all $12 (if I go that route and it goes over $12, I'd cap it at 12, not trying to make money, just recoup a mistake).

I'll be out of town Sun-Tue, so if you don't get a response then, that's why.

Same boat. I just canceled. For some reason (I'll be charitable... for now), they didn't send an email reminder that my subscription was unpaused. For the last 6 months or so I've been using those reminder emails to manage my subscription. And since I don't want to have to set up my own reminders, I just canceled instead of suspending. A little annoying. :|

I got the reminder, thought I'd paused it but apparently did not and did not double check when I thought I should.

The other October humble games are revealed:
The 3 pre-release:
Overwatch
Dungeons 3
Hidden Folks

The other steam keys:
American Truck Simulator
Gremlins, Inc
We were here too
Old Man's Journey

2 coupons for American Truck Simulator stuff (no code, think I'd have to buy these and send the keys to them along if you wanted them, you'd pay what I'd pay then):
New Mexico - 50% off ($6.00, think I'd get another 10% w/ my humble sub discount)
Oregon - 10% off ($10.79, think I'd get another 10% w/ my humble sub discount)

2 Humble games:
Wandersong Sneak Peek
Ollie and Bollie's Outdoor Estate

***************
I am mildly interested in Gremlins, so if you wanted to buy everything but that, I'd go for a slight discount or otherwise happy to just sell it all. Willing to trade games I want instead of monetary if that's an option.

Anyone want to split the Discovery bundle? All I want is the War for the Overworld DLC and Phantom Brave. You can have Osiris: New Dawn, Kentucky Route Zero, RWBY: Grimm Eclipse, and Tricky Towers. I'll take a $3.49 game on Steam in payment.

Is Kentucky Route Zero finished yet? I started playing a few years ago, got pretty far into it, then read somewhere that the damn thing was not finished...so I bailed (presumably to pick up later when it WAS finished).

I'm in the same boat.

Nope, not finished. Supposed to be finished "early 2018".

Bet they don't finish.

Sort of. I'm looking around and seeing that it was apparently a mistake. They sent out the offer to a bunch of people along with a special link to claim it. They then revoked the offer, then reinstated it - but only for those that got the promotion email already.

Huh, I only got a $15 credit if you do a 3 month subscription, before I got an email saying it was a mistake.

As to how to do it if you're already on a subscription, I *think* you can gift yourself a subscription, and it gets appended to the end.

I rarely turn down free, but everyone should know that it only covers two of the movies. It doesn't have any Five Armies content. These lego games are always super fun, though.

FYI, there's currently a promotion (for the next day or two) for a year's subscription of Humble Monthly for $99, $33 less than the normal yearly subscription.
