We're quadrupling the amount of Double Fine fun you can have with four awesome games from Double Fine Productions and a whole heap of extra stuff! Pay what you want and get the beloved and hilarious platformer Psychonauts; the matryoshka doll epic adventure Stacking; and the adorable adventure/RPG Costume Quest. If you pay over the average, you'll get the heavy metal action/adventure/RTS rocker Brütal Legend. You'll also become a slacker backer of Double Fine's Kickstarter point-and-click adventure game, Broken Age, with a purchase of $35 or more and receive the finished game and bonus content that comes with it! And if you pay $70 or more you'll receive a limited edition Double Fine T-shirt (choose from two color options) in addition to everything else! Additionally, this bundle includes tons of soundtracks that will have your ears jumping for joy!

I'm not too sure about this new model for the Humble Bundle, with extra content at set prices rather than just beating the average. Regardless, these 4 games are fantastic, and worth every penny they're asking for them. (Average currently sitting at $7.60)

The new model just lets you buy into their new game via Kickstarter.

EDIT: But thanks for the heads up! I just bought the 4 games, even though I already got Psychonauts from a previous HB.

Bought! While I didn't really care much for the extra content, I guess it may be a good way to drive up the donations considering that some of the cash paid goes to charity? I dunno.

Eh, I might skip this one. Double Fine is getting far too much attention, and their games aren't that great(minus Psychonauts). And the "set price" for the preorder is something that doesn't belong on a Humble Bundle like that.

Not interested in Costume Quest, I already have Psychonauts, not interested in Stacking, considering the current port quality of Brütal Legend and the up in the air nature of future patches/fixes/support I'll pass on it until its on sale for less and due to that I'm not touching Broken Age until it comes out if at all. I hope their Weekly Sale come back soon.

$70 for a t-shirt? Really? Really?

Still, it's a good collection of games from a generally good developer. It's definitely a cool promotion, though I think I'll save my money for the next one.

Yeah that's my take on it too. I don't have or want Costume Quest and I already own Stacking and Psychonauts. I'll just pick up Brutal Legend in a Steam sale.

Kind of getting sick of seeing the same games over and over.. Psychonauts is the only one worth considering, I'll pass on this one.

Yeah, quite expensive for a t-shirt. Then again the last few years I've been buying collector's editions of certain games, and if I were to look at what I actually get for the price, it's hardly ever actually worth it. It's more of a "I like these games so much I'm willing to pay extra to support the company releasing this game". But eh, yeah I don't really care that much about Double Fine, only heard good things about Psychonauts that I still haven't played.

About Humble Bundles: To be honest at some point I stopped even caring what games I actually get. As long as there is one game that I still don't have, even if it's a game I never really wanted to buy, I've just bought the bundle for just slightly above average. I just boost up the charity slider more if they are games that I really don't care about... Because, uh, charity. I guess. And because I want to fill up my Steam account with games that I'll never get time to play. *shrugs*

I have a couple of the games in this bundle, but I find it difficult to turn down a bargain, so nabbed.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
