There's a bundle with Vegas Pro, Fastcut, and both Audio Studio and Video Studio 12 for $25. That's a hell of a deal.

I don't do video editing anymore, but used to use Vegas 10+ years ago when it was still my side gig. Loved the tools, and might just grab that on the off chance that I ever need it.

In one of my recurring favorite activities - forgot to pause again and have 0 interest in any of the 3 main games (won't know until Jan 4th what the others are).

The 3 early reveals are:
Wizard of Legend
Just Cause 3 XXL edition
Project Cars 2

If anyone wants this and didn't get it yet, $12 straight up and I"ll give you the other games as soon as they release. Otherwise, I'll piecemeal and try to recoup the $12 (if any games left over they will get put up in the free thread).

New Stardock bundle:
https://www.humblebundle.com/games/star ... cta_button

If anyone is getting that and doesn't particularly want the GCIII Intrigue dlc from the 3rd tier, I'd be very happy to work out a deal (either money or other games, maybe from the monthly DLC I bought inadvertently a couple posts above).

Wait... they can still include a steam key for Star Control: Origins in the bundle?

Huh, didn't notice the coupon. Have to guess that's not going to work, but who knows, maybe? Maybe they just haven't caught up yet (which if they do, seems like that coupon might not be worth much).

If anyone is still looking for Yakuza 0, it's the Steam early unlock for the next Humble Monthly (along with Tom Clancy's The Division in Uplay).

Darkside Detective
Roombo: First Blood (Justice Sucks) (this is a humble download)

If anyone wants it all for the $12 great, otherwise I'll piecemeal it for what I can get of the $12 (anything after $12 is recovered, I'll just give away for free).

FYI - I paused, it offered me a chance to not pause and only pay $10 for next month (maybe a discount some others can take advantage of to save $2).

Did anyone buy this but is not using it and willing to sell it to me?

I freakin' knew I would regret not buying the bundle but I'm low on funds and don't do much editing so I didn't buy it. I'm in the middle of a tiny piece of video editing and I can't get the freakin' audio to export with the video, because the open source tool I'm using (Openshot) has more issues than I find acceptable. It's actually working worse for me than it was in the previous version.

Bah!!

I bought it and installed it on what WAS my spare retro game PC. But that gave me a chance to upgrade to Win10 but then I bought a Blu-ray burner.

I had to do all this because my Dad spent WAY too much on having home movies digitized. He dumped them on me at Xmas and now I have a new project!

I'd pay 1/2 just for this DLC, or could give the whole December monthly bundle I have for sale here if someone buys this and gives me just the DLC (or some combination).

If no interest, I might just breakdown and buy it myself.

Is Vermintide 2 in the new monthly bundle worth anything if I hate people and never voluntarily play multiplayer with anyone?

After my experience with Vermintide 1 (got it for free somehow), I'm guessing the answer is a resounding NO.

It depends on what those experiences were all about. The core gameplay is about the same. It's still a game intended for co-op, it's still a Left4Dead clone with persistent character development set in the Warhammer universe, and random internet people are still a bunch of dicks. The bots are much better than VT 1's, and they've made them better since launch, with various commands you give them. It's entirely playable alone, and is a lot of fun with friends.

So this weekend I was looking at the current Programming book bundle. I was sort of on the fence, but I was also sort of "Oh, Arduino, that could be cool. Oh, R-Pi, that could be cool." and repeat a few more times. Then I was thinking "really it's just a dollar per book if I get all of them..." but I still hadn't convinced myself.

Then today my manager comes to me with a secret-ish project (ssh! it will involve ssh) and it's all about Docker, which is something I find fun to play with.

Sold! :D

Unless I'm buying a specific bundle, I don't look at the charity too closely. I'm not even sure you can change it for the monthly subscription, but probably. It is a cool feature though.

Humble Store Sega sale has Alien Isolation with all DLC for $12.49. That's a great deal for a fantastic game. I already own it but I'm going to try to pick up the DLC I don't have on the cheap.

For Humble Monthly folks on the fence this month, I can highly recommend Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. I had not even heard of this game before the monthly, but it's fantastic fun if you're a fan of turn-based tactical games like XCOM. The only criticism I've heard is that it's a bit on the short side, but considering it's still retailing for $35, it's a heck of a deal.

I'm also enjoying Northgard quite a bit, so thumbs up from me this month.

Tried to buy the new bundle at the lowest tier today.

7 captchas to try to log in.
Then my username/password to actually log in.
Then I tried to check out.
Two more captchas.
Then it wanted an email confirmation code that still hasn't arrived.

That's 11 confirmations for a $1 transactions that, 20 minutes later, I still haven't been able to complete.

I gave them some feedback on exactly what I thought of that.

Doing so involved another 7 captchas.

And I'm not exaggerating.

I can't recall ever seeing a captcha on their website or during a transaction. Like, ever.

I'll pay attention the next time I'm there.

The confirmation still hasn't come. I hit 'resend.' Five more captchas, this time verifying that I want verify that I'm verified. I'm up to 21 of them.

For the King - "strategic RPG"
"Smoke and Sacrifice is an open-world, narrative-driven RPG"

Yeah, I have no need for those. My wishlist is pretty deep.

For the King is WAY TOO difficult. I tried it, and let's just say, you will die... A LOT. I mean, you will barely survive for more than a few turns until you understand the system.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden - a review turned me off of wanting to try it.
Minit - black and white pixel graphics ... no.
Absolver - MP stance-based combat ... no.

I'd be happy to trade from my wishlist for these.
