    Another week, another humble bundle (not to be confused with the humbly weekly sale, which is also weekly).

    The line-up (all with including soundtrack):

    Obligated link to the stuff


    It's interesting to note that "The games in this bundle are compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Android." That in itself is pretty noteworthy (there are some linux debuts). It may not be the triple A big gun games...but the indie market sure gets all PC bases covered...

    Hmm. I was wondering whether this was posted already or not. The package is great, I've had quite a few evening spent with Worms alone. Ticket to ride also seems to be an interesting game (based on the same named board game), but as I've yet to play the board game, the basic logics and strategy are a bit hard to get.

    ps. The price is going up. I bought it a couple of days ago and the average was at around $6.10 (paid more to beat the average).

    Nothing of my interest in the bundle this time around.

    You know it's not exactly humble any more, if they ask that you pay more than the average to get most of what they're offering.

    How does that make them not humble? People can still decide how much of their purchase goes to charity, the humble store, and/or the developers, and people are still getting a wide selection of games for next to nothing.

    Besides, most of the games in the "Pay Above The Average" section were just added to the bundle a few days ago. As far as I know, Humble Bundle has always put the games they add in later to that section to encourage people who pay the baseline to donate a little bit more.

    I'm sorry, but this is hardly the Bumbled Indie Bundle you seem to think it is.

    I don't follow that reasoning. The humble bundle is a bundle of different games by different people or studio's. I don't know how the bundle is decided exactly, but it seems plausible that each author gets to choose how they want to be given out in some way.

    But even then...how is it NOT humble that you can get 4 games for any price you want? I bought Anodyne some months back for 10 bucks and it was money well spent (even though I haven't finished it). Now I can get it for 2 cents if I choose to...so are you saying they aren't generous somehow? :unsure:

    Also: you get the extra games if you beat the average...but "the average" isn't fixed or something. On the contrary: they have no idea to know how much that average will be. So are you blaming me for somhow "unhumbling" the humble bundle because I donated more than the average, thus cranking up the price for the people after me? :unsure:

    You pay $6.30 and you get 9 games + 2 DLC packs and you're still complaining? And this money can go to whomever you want, charity or developer?

    Wow complaining has reached a new low.

    Well, that was certainly humbling...

    I just kinda question how humble the bundles really remain to be, compared to how they were at inception.

    You can pay literally a single penny and get 4 games + 1 DLC pack.

    Why are you still complaining.

    Thanks for the correction and the point, I thought Humble Bundles had it where you can pay anything but $1 minimum gets you the Steam copies.

    no you get the cd and ebook(if they have any). I have got some before, but if you pay more that the average of course you get more things(games, cds and books)
    also i have gotten torrents from them before to download the games if i did not have steam , so its not just steam.
    this weekly sale you get 3 cd with any donation and if you donate more than the average you get 2 one cds and the humble bundle you get 4 cd, if you pay more than the average you get 5 more cds

    $1 is the limit to get Steam keys for your Humble Bundle order. Unless stated otherwise you will get the games advertised on the site if you pay less than $1.

    I passed on this one as someone wanted to trade my humble bundle 2 key for the 3 games I didn't already have on steam personally speaking I think the lightning bundle at bundle stars.com is a better bundle especially for only £2.17
