Humble THQ Bundle: Pay Anything For 6 Really Great Games!
To me, the latest Humble Bundle is anything but humble, it’s more of a sumptuous buffet featuring some of the best that publisher THQ (it’s after all the Humble THQ Bundle) has to offer. Pay anything equal to a dollar or more and you’ll get a bevvy of games that would last you for months, these titles are Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction Armageddon, Company of Heroes and its two full-blown expansions Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor.
My eyes nearly popped out when I saw the list, but unlike the previous indie-focused bundles, I didn’t pay for more than the average this time. In fact, I only paid a dollar. The bonus game that comes with the bundle when you surpass the average amount (now standing at USD 5.86) is Saints Row: The Third. It’s not exactly my cup of tea, so no harm in letting go of that.
I just finished reviewing Stealth Bastard Deluxe so I only started playing one of the games from the bundle today. That particular title is Company of Heroes and I’m seriously impressed with the game. What other RTS starts you off with the D-Day invasion in Normandy? For a WW2-buff like me, this game is God-send and I’m actually a little disappointed that I didn’t play the game when it was first released in 2006…but then again, I just paid a dollar for this and a whole bunch of great games in 2012.
One can’t help but wonder whether THQ will add additional titles to the list. I really don’t mind paying more than the average price (it seems to be holding steady at the price mark I mentioned earlier) for titles such as Dawn of War or Dawn of War II (even better, BOTH, with all of their expansions, LOL). In any case, THQ should have just updated Company of Heroes with support for Achievements on Steam.
