You can pay whatever you want...
No, you can't. The minimum price is a dollar, for other bundles it's always been a cent. It's technicalities, but it's still not "pay what you want" compared to the other bundles. (In their defence, I do understand that there's a restriction on price imposed by Valve to prevent spam accounts, which is why they do it).

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.
Very true. I might still partake since I want Saints Row III and the new Red Faction, but my point was that the original Humble Bundle was aimed at getting indie developers some publicity, all the while making some money and doing some good for charity. This is just THQ selling their games cheap in their desperate bid to avoid bankruptcy.

What part of a company selling its game for cheap for the good of charities is not humble?
That wasn't my point. I'm fully supportive of THQ doing something for charity, and I'll probably buy in for SR3. My point was that in the beginning I liked the Humble Bundles because they exposed me to games that would otherwise not have been on my radar. This year there's been so many HBs that I've skipped most of them.
I dunno, I just think that HB used to be an event
, now it's just an advertising campaign that repeats once a month.
