    Humble bundle's at it again:



    For one dollar or more, you get:
    Bioshock
    The bureau: XCOM declassified
    The Darkness II

    Pay more than $7.98 the average to unlock:
    Bioshock 2
    Mafia II
    Spec ops: the line
    (more games to be added later)
    X-COM: apocalypse
    X-COM: enforcer
    X-COM: interceptor
    X-COM: terror from the deep
    X-COM: UFO defense

    Pay $20 to unlock:
    Xcom: enemy unknown
    Bioshock infinite

    awesomesource


    While I guess most of us at least have some of these games, I guess this is news worth sharing. :)


    EDIT: $7.98 was only the average at time of writing
    EDIT 2: extra games were added to the 'beat the average' games

    I forgot
    Grabbed it when it first came out a few days ago, just paid about the average (which was like $5 then) for Spec Ops and Bioshock 2.

    Fantastic bundle but makes me feel pretty silly for buying the Bioshock trilogy on the steam sale, grabbed it for Specs Ops anyway, been meaning to play it for a while. Wanted to buy the $20 tier for XCOM but I can't justify it when I already have Infinite.

    Folks were discussing it on IRC the other day and as the original bioshock was DRM free I grabbed it for a dollar, as ever given all to the devs. Stuck the others as steam keys on IRC, I wonder if they got used.

    I miss the days of all DRM-free and all OS bundles.

    Will probably grab. Pretty good lineup. I wanted to beat Spec Ops but never got around to buying it (and my "demo" had save corruption issues).

    You're like 2 years too late to make that comment. Bundles like this happen a lot more often than not, and have been for aaaaaaages.

    Yeah I miss all the shitty flash games shoved into bundles with 1 good game too...

    ...oh wait

    I guess I'll pay over the average when I get paid. I already have Bioshock, but the rest should be new additions to my collection.

    I don't get all the whining about this new bundles, you great games for cheap and they still are "pay what you want". If you dislike Humble Bundle's practices you are free to give all your money to charity or the devs. The "DRM free-All OS" bundles still happen with the main bundles and if they aren't "All OS" it's not really HB's fault, they can't force the devs to port their games.
    Seems to me like complaining for the sake of it. If there's something to complain about it should be all those clones with shitty greenlight games that are riding on HB success.

    Well that's not exactly true. People want their games to get into these bundles because they make a lot of money, and as a result, games have been ported to Linux in order to get into the Humble Bundle. Amnesia: The Dark Descent, for example, is a game that was ported to Linux for the Humble Bundle. The choice was simple: port your games to Linux or you don't get bundled.

    Bioshock, Bioshock II, and Spec Ops: The Line are all worth the price of admission. I've always wanted to try the Darkness II (the first one was great) and Mafia II, but I don't think my laptop could take it.

    The Bureau: Xcom Declassified is like the fruitcake of the bundle. It's a horrible present that nobody wants and, honestly, is probably just being regifted anyway.

    (If you want The Darkness II on Steam I'll gift you my copy)

    I bought it a while ago on a Steam sale. It's eh, sloppy fun but pretty stupid in the end.

    An utter disappointment considering how well they did the first game.
    They clearly lost the people who did the story in the first.
