    Let's do something smoll so that they call us greedy for reducing the ability of our buyers to donate to charity.

    I'm not sure. I generally love puzzles and programming, but I just can't wrap my head around this one. It's original, absolutely. But I've had at least some levels that were just there to make you look stupid.

    Erm... Is this sarcasm? Sure, humble has had larger bundles before, but seldom if ever so many headliners. And you can always donate more than the suggested minimum for the bundle.

    What I mean is that in this bundle gives 100% of earnings to charity, they announced an update a few weeks back that they will limit the ability to donate to charity to 20% tops.

    Did you miss the subsequent update where they rolled that back due to public outcry?

    Feels like it's been awhile since I've seen a large bundle like this. Cool.

    You'd think they'd call the Oreos cereal Ore-O's, but they're Oreo O's.
    While I don't exactly agree with him, I also don't care for companies attaching themselves to social causes for business and good PR. It just screams "look how good we are, we care about [current issue] give us your money!" and then they never acknowledge the issue again. People should not be treated like a social cause or project and then forgotten.

    I'd say it's worth it just for 7 Days To Die, Bioshock, Titan Quest, and Saints Row the Third.

    That's your good right. I have to point out that some bundles (this one... Iirc the BLM one from last year as well, but can't remember) give 100% to charity, so the monetary aspect doesn't come into effect.
    Humble 's recent critic was actually that their main trend is to shy away from charity with an imposed maximum of what you can give to charity. So indeed : their roots get certainly more blurred out.

    Still... You wouldn't boycott a company because they once picked a charity you disagree with, right?
