    Some solid titles, but all of the solid titles are also quite old and go on sale for incredibly low prices. There are a lot of games but it's tucked full of shit like "The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy: Practical Tips for Staying Safe Online" and other garbage book PDFs to make it look bigger.

    At least it all goes to charity. Been a long time since they really contributed solely to charity.

    It's certainly WOW-worthy. But to be honest, this is more like a perfect present for a PC gamer who lived under a rock for a couple years. Of the 47 items, I already have 16 games (of the remaining, 6 are high on my 'want' list, 10 are "hey, this may be interesting" and 15 are meh. And with my steam library, I'll probably never even make it throuh my potentials :P ).

    Granted, of the games I've played, only 'no time to explain' and waking mars were games I've found boring (nuclear throne, super meat boy, world of goo, stanley parable, super hexagon, vvvvv...v?, guacamelee, swapper, human resource machine, a virus named Tom, robot roller derby disco dodgeball and especially mini metro and mushroom 11 were at the very least interesting and sometimes exceptionally great :) ).

    . I have no idea why they included a "chapter one preview audiobook", though. It's not like buyers of the bundle are going to have enough time to even start the preview. :P

    Most, but not all. The witness and stardew valley never had a -75% sale, and aside from the latter being in a humble monthly, they never were in bundles either.
    EDIT: note that I'm talking about steam prices. More games than I would expect now also have a 'DRM free' version. :)

    Namco bundle is better, Pacman and tales of zestria for 15 :P

    Enslaved, i remember my dad played it, beat it and sold it, must have been bad. How can it be bad? A game based on the famous chinese novel journey to the west? MONKEY MAN STAFF FLYING CLOUD (Not dragon ball z or son son ripp off) :wtf:

    But all those games for 30 is nice, just none of them seem interesting, except guacemelee, oh wait have that on wii u, well then there is ummm... Super meat boy, only reason i know him is RETRO CITY RAMPAGE. No time to explain? Well that achievement hunter Rage quit video was funny. Retro game crunch looks cool, but maybe i can get a sale on steam, not for 30 bucks. Well that game @Chary reviewed, 2040 read only memory. Hmmm.... Ninaj pizza girl sounds fun, and streamline early access? Wonder what that is? Maybe i'll wait for more later to see and then decide, i may get it then give away the stuff i don't want. :D

    I don't usually crosspost, but if anyone wants to trade subnautica with me, check here. :)

    @Sonic Angel Knight: I played enslaved a bit last year. It's okay but nothing too noteworthy. And seeing how it's a sci-fi world in basically a "revolution" setting (the TV serie) and the gameplay is basically prince of persia, it's not like they're taking that "based on" thing very literally. :)

    The trading section is litterally onna be flooded with trade offers from humble bundle. We can already gift and trade games on steam Lol. :P

    Still seeing that game i'm surprised namco published it. It was about a average game i suppose. Being a bit more like a Prince of persia game, (Maybe assassians creed) Ubisoft may have published it. Still i mean that game was based on Dragon Ball Z and Capcom's Son Son Journey to the west, a famous novel. I guess anyone can mess up such a relic. :P

    For some reason that new game Horizon Zero Dawn coming out on ps4 feb 28 reminds me of Enslaved oddesy to the west, my dad didn't like the game, after playing it, but he seem to like horizon, if the game is much like that, is just his fault for being clueless. :unsure:

    Christ...when that bundle said "more might be added soon", they weren't messing around: 23 extra items (of which about 20 games), bringing the total of 69 items.
