Humble Strategy Simulator Bundle

Post by NintendoNut » Tue Jan 07, 2014 3:25 pm

https://www.humblebundle.com/

When will these monsters' thirst for blood be sated? Time and again Humble come along, offering several quality games at a user-defined price, with the option of donating as much or as little of that as you want to charity. Can't someone put a stop to this madness? THINK OF THE CHILDREN.

This bundle's base games are:

To The Moon
Joe Danger 2: The Movie
Papo & Yo
BIT.TRIP Runner 2

And if you're feeling generous, the games unlocked for paying above the average are:

Reus
Surgeon Simulator 2013

There will be more games added, as is the norm with their bundles these days. I hear from a reliable source that the immensely popular Starbound was available for about 30 seconds as part of the bundle, but it was swiftly removed. It'll probably make a reappearance later in the week/next week when the new games get revealed, unless someone made a monumental mess of things.
I donated to VGF and all I got was this one-liner

I highly doubt Starbound would make an appearance, considering it's still in a rather early beta. More likely I'd think it'd be Terraria hitting the next unlock phase.

Well, I guess I'll hit this up later, I've wanted to take a look at Joe Danger 2 for a while and Runner 2 has been on my radar for a long time (I still pride myself in beating 1)

The first 1000 people to donate at least $10 got Starbound. Naturally, that was gone pretty quickly.

Certainly.

To the Moon and Papo and Yo are puzzle-centric games and both have a story arc you're meant to follow in them. To the Moon being about finding stuff in rooms while Papo and Yo is more platforming based. Don't play them back to back though. Unless you want eternal crying in your future.

Joe Danger 2 is like those games with the bike and physics. I don't know too much about those types of games, but Joe Danger 2 does look like it is as good as the others.

And Reus is a god game about using four giants to shape the world and support the humans that live on it. It looks interesting.

Hope that helps!

Three more games have been added to the bundle for those willing to pay above the average:

HOARD
Strike Suit Zero
Toki Tori 2+

Has anyone played any of these?

Reus is less fun then it sounds like it would be. Definitely an interesting game, but it seemed simplistic from what I played.

HOARD is an awesome game for local multiplayer, but I can't see it being any good either single player or over the internet. Probably not the best game to play on PC.

Humble Bundle 11 is out now. I've passed up most of these games more than once, but I have heard good things about them, enough to spend a buck.

Guacamelee! Gold Edition
Dust: An Elysian Tail
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
The Swapper
BTA: Antichamber
BTA: Monaco What's Yours Is Mine

Sega is now an indie company. Been expecting this. Not seeing anything even at the $1 level.

I really want to play "To The Moon" some time. I wish it would get ported to video game consoles.

^It would've run on the computer I had 15 years ago. What's stopping you from playing it on PC?

The SEGA bundle would be a great deal if I didn't already own the Total War games. Typing of the Dead is about the only thing that interests me, and I'm not sure that's a joke worth $6.

I never could get into Total War for some reason, though it seems like the type of game that's right up my alley.

^^ Main reason is Trophies. I'm sort of a whore for them now. Not sure how this happened.

I've heard Binary Domain is rather good, actually.

It's pretty generic, IMO. Certainly playable.

I have an installment of Monaco because I was going to play it with friends. This never happened. Other than that, nothing else really interests me out of this bundle.
