I hate you, Humble Bundle!

Once again, the Humble Bundle tricked me into buying great games for an insanely low price. Probably, I won’t have the time to play half of them, like is always the case when I buy videogames…

But come on, Humble Bundle is back, this time with 10 awesome indie games, for which you pay the price that you want (it’s actually 5 games, + 5 extra games if you beat the average price). If that’s not enough for you, these games are cross platform (Windows, Linux, Mac), DRM free, and you can actually choose how to divide your money between the developers and charity. So, yeah, I had to get it.

The highlight of this new bundle is probably Torchlight, a critically acclaimed Diablo “clone” … ok, I’m using the word clone here for a lack of vocabulary… Torchlight was actually made by (among other awesome people) Diablo’s creators. Torchlight 2 was actually out just this week, and has been described as “What Diablo 3 should really have been” by the people who tried it. Ok, don’t get mixed up here, what you get in this bundle is torchlight 1, a great game from 2009, but not Torchlight 2, the apparently awesome sequel from 2012.

In addition to Torchlight, the Bundle includes Rochard, Shatter, SPAZ, Vessel, Dustforce, BIT TRIP RUNNER, Gratuitous space battles, Jamestown, and Wizorb. I could describe each one of them, but a video is probably better at this point.

The Humble Bundle is a steal, there’s no reason to not get it, so hurry up, the promotion ends in less than a week! (you can actually even pay 1c for it if you want, but please, don’t be that guy, show a minimum of appreciation for the devs, balanced with what you can afford, of course)

    $1 if preferred minimun. In that case, you’ll get Steam keys.

      Well, everybody’s in their own financial situation so I won’t judge, but paying $1 for this Bundle is kinda lame, it probably doesn’t even pay for the server costs to downloads/store the games, not mentioning the maintenance, etc… I’d strongly recommend people to at least beat the average price, if only to get the 5 extra games.

      Then just don’t buy that 1 game you were thinking of getting on either of these consoles, and bam, you get 60$. Give 25$ to the bundle, and spend the other 35$ on a great meal. You got 10 games and an awesome meal instead of 1 game.

        I agree with Wololo.
        I bought this bundle, and I already own/ed Torchlight…

        I usually buy the bundles, even if I don’t care for the games because it supports the developers and a charity…

        Also, $35 will buy you an AMAZING meal.

    With no more Vita eating my money (still no regrets for the people who always ask me), I bought the games for $15.

    This was a great deal Wololo keep posting more if you find any.

    Heh, I’m pretty good at guessing trends…

    For as awesome as this deal is, it will have many who feel they derserve to get to be that guy. Then gamers wonder why the companies do some of the things they do.

    Enough of that though, I’m gonna check out the game list :)

    I bought it too, like 3 bundles before…. but Wololo is right, no time to play all of them, just playing torchlight, I would say, Diablo 3 is much worse than 1st torchlight not played the second yet…, diablo bored me to death

    paying constant 25$, i know somebody might say why so much, but I would like to appreciate the offer. I have a lot of original games, sort of colector.

        Depends on where your at, $35 bucks can get you a great meal if you know were to go. Or it can leave you pissed off and confused if you just follow advertising and blew it on a tiny steak.

    I only buy the humble bundles if there is android as well, cause its easier to find time if there on mobile devices, but there was only 1, that I know of …and I might be horrible but I go 25% to humble bundle 75% to devs and 0% to charity :p

    haha, this is the problem with games that are priced incredibly well; even if you don’t have time to play it, the amazingly good deal will lure you in.

    beware! (tho anyone who wants to fix the industry should really buy it)

    How can someone pay less that a couple of coffee or a pack of cigarettes for 10 great games ?

    Not being able to save up 30 or 40$ is understandable, but common, 5$…

    Thanks for the heads up wololo. I already own Torchlight on PC but I bought the bundle anyway. And I beat the average price. A great deal even for what I gave.

    My brother keeps telling me about the Humble Bundle but I have yet to buy any. For most of it, I don’t want to be someone who only donates a $1 or whatever the bare minimum is. I mean, yeah, they’ve got some really cool games, but you guys should put in more money just to help out the great cause. Taking advantage is only going to make the creators and hosts not want to keep doing this. Frankly, this is awesome both for organizations, the website, and us as consumers. We ought to be grateful and show our gratitude by not being cheap if we can help it.

      So far every bundle has beat the last one in terms of sales and average prices, so if nothing else its working. Very few people are going to charge 1c seeing as most credit companies will ping you a $3.50 on anything bought for less than a dollar.

    I would get tihs, considering ive gotten about the last 4 bundles, but I already own 4/5 of the above the average games, and I already own just some of the normal games. The best bundle was the one that cane with Amnesia, Bastion, and a bunch of other great games.
