humble indie bundle Humble THQ Bundle

53 posts in this topic

AFAIK, the only other series of bundles that actually let you pay what you want is Indie Gala. They do something similar to Humble Bundle's beat-the-average, but it's always a fixed price (very reasonable though; the current bundle's bonus cost is $4.49). The other bundle series that I'm aware of (Indie Royale, Groupees, etc.) do the pay-what-you-want plan, but with a minimum price.

I meant bundles as in other Humble Bundles :p

Seems as if they have actually been getting some pretty generous donations, seen a few people that have given over $100

I bit. Already have Company of Heroes, but it will be nice to have them on steam. The other games all look good too.

Purchased one pack for charity 2 days ago

But, guess what:

A) I am new to steam as I already have an Xbox 360 Slim.this is a good start to pump my account.

B) They added Titan Quest, Red Faction: Armageddon Path to War DLC

After payment, I accessed the link of keys and I found the keys of the new two games automatically

Neat, isn't it !!!!!!!!!! :)

I think I might do that. Not a fan of Steam at all, but I've got it anyway, so it doesn't hurt to give some money to charity and maybe get some games out of it.

I've bought 3 keys so far and gave 2 of them to friends, and all money towards THQ. I want SR4.

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 agree with the first and third point but it is still pay what you want. That makes it pretty humble IMO.

Guys,

THQ is in financial trouble. This really does feel like their last ditch effort to please the shareholders and generate

some cashflow to finish up the games they have in the pipeline. Metro 2034, CoH2 and SR4 (which isn't really in

the final stages of developent afaik)

So please, stop complaining about this not being a real indie bundle without DRM. Give your money to THQ, they need it.

Heck I've bought it just to help THQ and I've spent enough money on some of their games already.

#SaveTHQ

agreed

And thankfully, existing buyers got it regardless of whether they beat the average or not. :) Which is good, as if I had to beat the average, it'd be cheaper now for me to just buy the whole thing again. :p

if you beat the average at the time of your purchase you got titan quest, anyone who buys it gets the dlc

All buyers got Titan Quest. I was nearly $9 below the average at the time, and Titan Quest + the Red Faction DLC showed up in my bundle. I successfully redeemed the Titan Quest key last night. :)

I don't mind showing the keys, as I've already redeemed them. Well, except for the Red Faction DLC, as I had it, thanks to Amazon's THQ bundle deal a while ago. So if anyone wants to redeem that, be my guest. ;) Just post after you redeem it so everyone knows it's gone.

The email they sent out yesterday said otherwise. ;)

I got the extras for my first 2 also, I guess because I bought it before it was offered.

Generally with Humble Bundles if you buy before the bonuses are released you get them regardless of whether you beat the average or not. I didn't beat the average (because I already had SR3) and I got TQ and the RFA DLC.

Yep, if you paid above average, you will get the bonus regardless of when you paid as long as it is above the average AT THE TIME of your purchase.

I paid $6 (I was wanting just SR3) and this is a steal and I just got the bonuses. Looks like my laptop steam account will get a few nice presents :). (already own all the games in the THQ except SR3 on my main account).

That hasn't been the case with the recent indie bundles IIRC. You had to beat the average to get the games added later. It's not been like that evey time though.

Another game's been added to the bundle! Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War has been added now. :)

I bought this, then realised I already own everything in it. I made the mistake of redeeming the main code on steam hoping for giftable copies but they don't do that.

How should I proceed to give away the rest of the codes?

That's a good idea, and to make it fair, I purchased the original bundle minus bonus games again, as a gift.
