    I think this is now officially the best bundle yet, though some people are saying this is now corrupting the purpose and idea of the humble indie bundle, to each his own but you get some great games either way for cheap.

    Note:
    paying below $1 will only get you soundtracks to the games, no DRM-free versions like previous bundles
    paying $1 or more will get you the games redeemable on steam + sountracks
    paying above the average will get you everything listed above and saints row the third + other bonuses they throw in.

    this bundle is Windows + Steam redeemable only, there are no DRM free versions or anything for other operating systems

    I don't think anyone is denying the good deal part, but that does ruin the idea, not to mention it already reeks of THQ schemes.



    That said, grabbed though, for metro and drmfree darksider.

    Wow. Like, wow. Last time I bought a humble bundle they added a bunch of crap afterwards and pissed me off. So I'll wait.

    $5.50 here too, could've waited shamelessly to be cheaper, but nah. Each game is worth more than my paltry contribution.

    These are very not-DRM free. They're Windows+Steam ONLY.

    Edit - not that most of us mind Steam at this point.

    WTF. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this. WHAT?! These aren't Indies of course, but who cares?
    Plenty of other bundles aimed at indie, I would love some more big-time titles in these bundles.

    ...You know, whenever they add stuff to the bundle they add the new stuff to your download page even if you bought it before they added them.

    You of course have to pay the average at first in order to claim them.

    early buyers did not have to pay above the average
    once they add it though and you buy the bundle after you have to pay above the average

    and everybody make sure the money goes to charity and not THQ in the donation box

    I think "humble" is a bit of an understatement here. If I was a cynical man, I might start lobbing around the word "desperate" in its place.

    Anyway, that is an amazing deal. If this is what "corrupting" the humble bundle system looks like, then I'm all for it.

    Oh nice, I see I have an extra steam for Wizorb, BIT.TRIP.RUNNER, Gratuitous Space Battles, and Jamestown. :D Too bad I already have them somehow.

    If you already have a game, they DON'T give giftable copies, they just don't. Better to sit this one out then.
    QFT. I paid 1 USD last Bundle, I got 6 games immediately, and 1 week later I got another 5 games, for nothing. 1 USD nets me 11 Indie games.

    I gave everything to THQ though, sorry. They are the ones making this possible in the end.

    Wat. I have the games I mentioned in the post already, but I've bought the THQ bundle already. Just went and made an account and they told me I could get a Steam key for Wizorb, BIT.TRIP.RUNNER, Gratuitous Space Battles, and Jamestown. (Which again I already have. :D)

    To be fair, considering THQ's considerable financial troubles, both options are one and the same.
