The latest Humble Indie Bundle just deployed, and it's anything but indie...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vX4jd3yrsM

For those who can't view the video, this bundle contains...
  • Darksiders
  • Metro 2033
  • Red Faction Armageddon
  • Company of Heroes
  • Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
  • Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor
And the beat-the-average game...
  • Saints Row The Third

You get the game soundtracks as well (with the exception of Metro 2033).

Get stuck in.


Word of warning: This bundle is Windows-only, and you can only get the games in Steam key form (as usual for HIBs, it's one key for the entire bundle, then a separate key for the beat-the-average game). The minimum purchase price is $1, but I doubt that'll affect anyone here. :p

What part of this is a "humble bundle"?

- DRM-free? Nope
- Pay What you want? Not really
- Multi-platform? Nope

This is THQ selling out the Humble Bundle to peddle their products for cheap and raise some cash to stop them going under. :no:

I have no problem with that.

FWIW, the last bundle wasn't truly multi-platform either.

Thought I had beaten the average for Saints Row, but once the payment had been accepted and I got to the page where it shows your keys Saints Row row was not there, so the average must have gone up in the time it took to do all of that? :(

Ahh well, no biggie; just go to your link and increase your amount so it beats the average, and you'll get the game. Slight catch is it locks to the average price when you first bought it. The current average is $5.21; when I bought it, it was $9.79. :p

"Did you go like, a penny over?"

I admit it wasn't much, but it was about $0.25 over. When I look at that main page now it's still less than what I paid. Oh well :)

Thanks. I'll try adding some more on now :D

Weird. It's probably going down too.

Eh, if it's another $5.50 for Saint's Row, that's still dirt cheap.

People need to stop calling it the "Humble indie Bundle", it is called "Humble Bundle". If they want to toss out indie games then they will put Indie in the title just like they did for eBooks, Andriod, and Music. If a company wants to package there games and let the Humble Bundle guys sell what is the problem? Don't want to give money to THQ then put all the money towards charity and/or Humble tip.
