    The Humble Bundle has certainly grown a lot, hasn't it? Beginning life as a small collection of indie titles, its bundles now make millions of dollars and attract the likes of EA and Activision. They've even expanded their operation, simultaneously two bundles at once.

    Well, it looks like it's full speed ahead for the Humble train, and this train's got no brakes. Todaythey've opened The Humble Store.

    That's right, now they've got a store most humble - and it ain't no fumble.

    So go ahead, buy something. You know you want to. And hey, it's for charity. You wouldn't say "No" to a charity, now would you?

    Some nice games, many of which I was actually hoping would come onto bundles one day.
    Sadly the ones I do not already have and would like enough to go get my wallet (I can never seem to remember the security code even if I can remember every other number on there) are steam only.

    I love these places for game deals, i also like the idea of some of the profits going to charity.

    With new games added daily i know i'll be a regular visitor, Steam getting some real competition now?

    If I am not mistaking, you can get steam keys from these sales. Since I doubt they are generating their own steam keys then there must be some collaboration with steam with these sales. While I understand that the humble bundle store may sell same games as steam but a cheaper price, I from the previous sentence's fact, I don't think they are in competition.

    if you can accept being relentlessly slaughtered while having a hard time landing a hit for the first few hour, then yes.

    I bought the swapper about a month ago. Those who say that there aren't original games being made nowadays should really try it out. I've honestly played anything like it. It's a platformer in which you have a clone gun that lets you create up to five clones that copy your every movement. You need to collect orbs by cloning them in correct positions and 'swapping' your own character correctly. Looks beautiful, interesting storyline and (as said) very original gameplay.

    If valve saw them as threath then they would simply deny steam keys being given out. Of course valve gets some money for every key so they can keep their service free excluding games. Actually most indie games do steam trading cards these days so valve and devs get a little more from those as well!
    If you think about it steam is platform and store so some people may not even search for other places to get games when they can easily buy it from the service they are using to play it later.

    I won't lie. I was more than half expecting them to be selling t-shirts and hoodies when I saw the title of this thread.

    EDIT: First Monthly and Weekly sales, now daily. I won't be surprised, if key chains and such are next.

    Hope a lot of people buy Blade Symphony. It's quite fun but it has a real lack of players since it's only on early access.

    Humble Bundle has been doing great. Nice to see they are expanding their services. Shame Guild Wars 2 is only in NA. Wanted to try it for a while now, enjoyed Guild Wars 1 quite alot. Any way to still but the game in EU? Some people are using proxies but that would mean they would get 'keys' for the NA servers right?

    Guild wars 2? Blood dragon? Okay...there are certainly differences in region. Here's what's on sale 'today' in Europe (starting since about 3 hourse ago since this post):

    Amnesia: a machine for pigs
    shadow warrior (the remake)
    systom shock 2
    dungeion defenders & DLC
    super hexagon
    pixel junk monsters ultimate
    legend of grimrock
    spacebase of 9
    Monaco
    Euro truck simulator 2
    prison architect
    Batman arkham origins (though it has to be noted that this is still full price...so buying it basically allows you to donate a part of it to charity).

    Aside from the latter, they have 25% to 75% discount.

    Just out of curiosity...what's on sale in the US right now?

    Pretty much everything there except Planetary Annihilation takes place of Euro Truck Simulator 2.
