Conquer The Past and Future In Humble Sega Strategy Bundle

Another month another bundle, and this time, you will be conquering time itself with the Sega Strategy Bundle.

Starting at $1 you can grab the Company of Heroes Complete Edition and The Dawn Of War Master Collection. If playing as the USA, Germany or England wasn’t enough for you in the past, then maybe taking to the 41st century and deploying the undying living metal of the Necron or the righteous fury of the Sisters of Battle could tempt you. With the complete Medieval 2: Total War and Rome Total War collections included the distant past isn’t far from being conquered either. Rounding off the $1 collection is a bundle of classic Sega games such as Shining Force and Columns.

The pay more than average tier features the highly anticipated sequel to the Dawn Of War series, in its complete Grand Master collection none the less. Take to Japan in the Total War: Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai Collection or take on an alternative world in Valkyria Chronicles, with tanks and special powers fueling and fighting conflicts. If you are one for a slower pace then why not try the Eastside Hockey Manager or enjoy the 66% off Football Manager 2016 code you can grab from the Humble Store.

Finally at $12 or more you unlock Company of Heroes 2 Master Collection, bringing a whole new light to the series with new gameplay mechanics focused on the war on the eastern front. Joining Company of Heroes 2 is Total War Attila, with enhanced graphics, AI and gameplay mechanics bringing you to the internal and external conflicts that helped shape the name of Attila the Hun.

Fancy Making Your Own Game? Cryengine Bundle Could Help

Ever feel like making your own game? Well with the news that the Cryengine is now free to use, you could start doing just that and Humble bundle are looking to help you by giving you a bunch of assets for cheap with proceeds going to charity.

As with most bundles, there are three tiers for the Cryengine bundle. The first tier features everything you need to create your very first game, with plants, shrubs and trees joining environmental props and a paintball first person shooter project to get you started with the engine.

The second bundle you get once your donation goes over the average and features some vehicles, weapons, audio tools and the nature and animal pack for Ryse.

Finally, you have the upper tier of the bundle, featuring a starter project for a survival game, some extra vehicles, characters and city scenery. You even get two Ryse packs, featuring the world building and roman pack which contains building and characters from Ryse: son of Rome.

With so much content, you could build your own survival game combining the best of two worlds, with legionnaires going up against your well-armed modern day character or perhaps flip the table and see how long a well-armed legionnaire would survive in the modern city?

The world is yours to create, and with the money going towards the children’s miracle network, a charity where gamers help support hospitals all over, you can’t help but grab the bundle.

Another Fantastic Humble Bundle – Just in Time for Christmas

At this time of year, we often see sales appear, from GOG’s store opening sales and deals to the infamous Steam Winter Sale. Amongst these sales, we must remember to keep your eyes peeled for other great deals, the ones that may not be holiday deals, but don’t mean they can’t brighten up those dark mornings. One of the regular deals, Humble Bundle, is back with yet another great selection.

The Humble Square Enix Bundle features a range of games going from $1 to $13. At $1 you get Life is Strange episode 1 and the last Remnant. As if altering time in order to twist a story as you wish it to unfold and saving the world from creatures unknown but all-powerful isn’t enough, why not solve murders in Murdered: Soul Suspect. Still not interested? How about Tomb Raider 1, 2 and 3!

Still not interested? Why not get Just Cause 1 and 2, 30 days of Final Fantasy XIV and Front Mission Evolved among the “pay more than the average” price bracket. With games like Tomb Raider GOTY edition and Hitman Absolution Elite Edition in the $13 bracket with even more games unlocking on Tuesday.

The Humble Codemasters Bundle is Awesome!

Humble Bundle often discounts a number of enticing games and allows you to choose what percentage of the money goes to charity. Recently, the company expanded the amount of charities you can donate to which helps funds a cause close to your heart. The latest bundle incorporates a huge amount of Codemasters games at rock bottom prices. The $1 or more tier includes Grid 2 + Drift Pack, DIRT Showdown, Overlord, Operation Flashpoint Complete, Hospital Tycoon and Colin McRae Rally. Sadly, GRID 2 is a poor sequel and doesn’t live up to its iconic predecessor. Additionally, DIRT Showdown tries to emulate Flatout and just ends up being very annoying, and rather lackluster.

On another note, Colin McRae Rally is a mobile port and doesn’t really honor the original series. However, the Operating Flashpoint games are surprisingly good and very difficult. If you beat the average, it also comes with GRID Autosport, Overlord II, Overlord Raising Hell, GRID 2 Spa-Francorchamps Track Pack and more! GRID Autosport is miles better than GRID 2 in terms of physics and career mode but it’s still not as good as the original title.

Finally, if you pay more than $15, the pack includes GRID Autoport Season Pass, Dirt 3 Complete Edition and GRID 2 DLC pack. This is certainly worth the extra for DIRT 3 Complete given the huge selection of vehicles, tracks and superb handling model. The game was originally criticized for its horrible DLC model, but at least all of the extra content is included and you no longer have to deal with Games For Windows Live!

2K Games Developer Sale at Humble Store

The Humble Bundle is a well-known thing to PC gamers. The concept is that a selection of games will become available for as little as $1, with additional games being unlocked when you pay a little more. With you able to define how much you give to Humble Bundle’s creators, the game owners and from a selection of charities, you are able to decide just where your money goes. More recently they began the humble weekly bundle, a smaller time offer (at the moment the weekly bundle is titled “Japan Edition All-Stars”) and then the Humble store, offering games with a confirmed percentage going to charity. If you’re a fan of 2K’s games then it may be worth checking the site out as they are currently having a sale which will intrigue even the most reserved gamers.

Xcom Enemy Unknown for £6.24 (75% off), Bioshock Infinite for £4.99 (75% off), Civilization 5 £4.99 (75% off) and the expansions are both £4.99 each (Brave New World and Gods and Kinds).

Get the latest Sid Meier’s Civilization, Beyond Earth, for 50% at only £14.99, or if you feel like a great shooter with an interesting story and characters then why not grab some of the Borderlands series. The original Borderlands (GOTY edition with all the DLC’s) is only £4.99 (75% off) while Borderlands 2 (GOTY edition) is £8.74  (75% off). The latest in the borderlands series, Borderlands the pre-sequel, is also included at £11.99 (60% off).

Humble Weekly Bundle ‘Japan All Stars Edition’ is Super Cheap!

The huge discounts during Steam sales and various bundles makes PC gaming an affordable proposition once you’ve paid for the hardware. Certainly, the most famous bundle company is Humble which offers a host of great games at discounted prices every week. The latest Humble Weekly Bundle entitled, “Japan Edition All Stars” includes Vanguard Princess Plus Hilda Rize, Lith, Kurmi DLC packs, Unholy Heights and One Way Heroics for $1 or more!

Although, I would strongly recommend purchasing the enhanced pack for Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae alone! This bundle also comes with REVOLVER 360 RE:ACTOR, Astebreed and the games previously mentioned. At the time of writing, you only need to pay a mere $3.28 to acquire this excellent selection of games.

All of the included games are redeemable on Steam and if there are any duplicates it’s easy to gift them to a friend. I’ve always been fond of bundles involving niche indie games which can often be overlooked due to the ginormous quantity of games on the Steam store. This is certainly one of the more interesting bundles in recent memory and well worth a look!

Do you still buy indie games on Steam, or simply wait for a bundle to get them at the cheapest possible price?

Humble Jumbo Bundle 5 Is Here and It’s Another Great One

It is that wonderful time again, that time where Humble Bundle is ready with yet another Jumbo Bundle. This is the fifth of this sort of bundle, as the name already suggests, and it looks to be another great one. Not only do you get a lot of great games and soundtracks for cheap money while you support charity along with the developers, you  even get multiple version of some of these games to give to your friends and get rocking with that multiplayer action right away. If that’s what you want.

The main three games in the Humble Jumbo Bundle 5 are Insurgency, including the Conquer update, Men of War Assault Squad, and a double pack of Abyss Odyssey. If you pay more than the average, at the time of writing that was $5.44, you will unlock three more games: Blackguards one and two and a four-pack of Contagion. Even more games will be added to the bundle on Tuesday, but which ones have not been disclosed yet.

Those who want to give even more and pay over $9 for the bundle, which still is an amazing deal for the bundle that has a normal value of over $250, will get another two games to add to their library: Spintires and Divinity: Dragon Commander.

Men of War: Assault Squad, Blackguards 2, Contagion, and Divinity Dragon Commander all come with their respective soundtrack as audio files too. All of these games are on Steam for Windows. Insurgency and Blackguards 1 & 2 are also available on Mac. Divinity: Dragon Commander is available both on Steam and DRM-free.

I’ve just purchased this bundle, simply for the great deal on Spintires compared to its normal price, and that doesn’t even include all the other games. Will you be getting this bundle?

The Humble Capcom Bundle is Fantastic Value!

In the last few months, there has been a sharp decline in the quality of PC bundles mainly because many offerings were repeated. Originally, the folks at Humble focused on DRM-Free titles and tried to give a platform to niche indie titles. As time progressed, we began to see mainstream franchises on sale from EA, SEGA and even Nintendo. The latest bundle is certainly one of the strongest I’ve seen and includes a number of superb games providing you beat the current average price of $7.04.

The $1 tier isn’t too enticing apart from Strider, a hack-and-slash action game. Although, Lost Planet 3 has its moments and shouldn’t be dismissed for the insanely cheap price. Out out all the games on offer, Devil May Cry is my favourite and features some of the most fluid, and intense combat I’ve ever seen. Additionally, the PC version is excellent and well-optimized. I am interested to see which other games are added to the second tier, and perhaps, Duck Tales could be on its way!

In the last decade, the Resident Evil franchise has become insufferable with an over-reliance on combat instead of tense, atmospheric gameplay. However, the Resident Evil Revelations games are surprisingly good and manage to evoke what made the original titles so special.

What is your favourite Capcom game of all time?

Where to Find the Best PC Gaming Deals!

Tired of paying full retail price for your games or waiting for the Steam Sale to roll around, only to find that most of the games that are on offer were the same games as the last sale? Well then, we’ve got a great guide to PC games deals for you, which could save you a small fortune and help you enjoy the latest games much sooner and for much less. Of course, there’s Steam, Origin and uPlay to pick from, but surely there are even more alternatives?


CD Keys

CD Keys are one of the most popular key reselling websites around and one of my own personal favourites having picked up a few great deals there over the last few months alone. Even better, the site lists more than just PC games and often has a 5% discount code available for liking their Facebook Page. Their stock updates quite a lot, so if your game isn’t on there, check back every day or so to see if it has become available. They even provide codes from various platforms such as Steam, Battle.net, GOG and uPlay, to name a few.

Humble Bundle

If you haven’t heard of this one, you’ve had your head under a rock for quite some time. Humble Bundle offers up some great gaming bundles, some lasting days, weeks and some that as just a few hours via their Humble Bundles pages, as well as the ever-growing Humble Store. Most of the keys are steam, but often you’ll also find mobile and other platform keys too. The bundles are mostly pay what you want, allowing for some seriously cheap deals, while their store relies on fixed prices, with regular discounts on popular titles.

Humble Bundle / Humble Store


Bundle Stars

That’s right, another bundle store, one that has been quickly growing on my radar and offering up better and better games at increasingly tempting prices. Humble Bundle may get a lot of the fame, but this one is certainly worth keeping on your bookmarks, as it offers some very wallet friendly gaming deals.

GOG (Good Old Games)

Don’t be fooled by the name, Good Old Games may offer a huge range of classic PC gaming titles, re-tweaked to ensure they run on modern operating systems, but they’re no stranger to new games either, such as The Witcher 3 which is proud to call GOG its home. The prices aren’t always the best on new games, but the older titles are an absolute steal and worth digging through. The best feature of GOG, however, is that all the games they sell there are DRM free, something that’s not to be sniffed at in today’s often heavily DRM-focused market.

GOG


Gamersgate

Gamesgate has years of history behind them, offering a wide range of gaming deals. It’s rarely the best-priced store, but when you’re shopping around, it’s always worth checking all the big deal sites as this one may be the winner for you. there’s plenty of regular discounts, as well as a range of games new and old that you may not find on other sites.

Gamersgate


Green Man Gaming

This is easily one of the most popular key reselling websites, with a solid reputation behind their name that’s made them one of the best-known game sites around. The thing that makes them the most attractive, is their regular deals, massive discounts and sales, often seeing titles reduced by as much as 95%. They also tend to do great deals around the time of Steam Sales, helping taking some of the wind out of Valve in those busy game buying periods.

Humble Announces Monthly Subscription Service

Humble Bundle originally offered DRM-Free indie titles and progressively worked towards adding mainstream Steam games and launching its own digital distribution store. This resulted in a huge amount of money being raised for charity and demonstrated how generous the gaming community is. Today marks the company’s boldest move so far and entry into the subscription service arena. Humble Monthly requires a payment of $12 per month in exchange for Steam codes.

The codes received are permanent and won’t stop working if you decide to cancel the subscription. However, there’s no information whatsoever regarding how many games are included, and the quality. It’s possible for Humble to include excess keys from previous bundles. This lack of information might appeal to some, but I feel consumers are taking a big risk when signing up to the service.

On another note, only 5% of your money goes towards charity which might be a shocking statistic to some. Even more ridiculously, gamers in Japan cannot access the service due to a region lock. This seems to contravene the open roots which Humble became so idolized for.

While there is the possibility of acquiring highly lauded games in a surprising package, I’m not convinced about the subscription’s business model and complete lack of transparency. I’ve commended Humble in the past for updating their list of supported charities, but this really does leave me feeling disappointed.

Do you believe the Humble Monthly service is a terrible idea?

Get Some Neo Geo Classics in Latest Humble Bundle

The friendly folks at Humble Bundle have unleashed another retro-inspired offering designed to rekindle our love of Neo Geo arcade games. Unfortunately, this package is limited to Android users and not available on other platforms. The Humble Neo Geo Android Bundle‘s $1 or more tier includes Garou: Mark of The Wolves, Blazing Star, The King of Fighters ’97, Metal Slug 2 and Metal Slug X. As a passionate retro-gaming fan, these titles provide a great deal of entertainment, but I’m unsure how well they translate using touch controls.

If you decide to beat the current average of $4.57, the second tier becomes unlocked and grants access to Fatal Fury Special, Samurai Shodown II, Metal Slug 3 and a number of undisclosed games coming soon. The final option requires payment of $29.99 or above and features everything from tier 1,2 and a Neo Geo 25th anniversary Metal Slug T-shirt.

The Neo Geo AES contains an extensive back catalogue with fighters, platformers, racers and shooters. While this bundle creates a legitimate means to purchase the older Neo Geo classics, I wouldn’t expect to gain the satisfying feel which comes from a micro switched stick. Nevertheless, a proportion of the money received goes to The American Red Cross and I’m sure a brief blast on Metal Gear X is well worth the minimum asking price.

Humble Jumbo Bundle 2 Includes Terraria and Age of Empires Legacy

Another Humble bundle has just gone up and this time its “Humble Jumbo Bundle 2”.

Humble bundles are packs of games that you can buy for as much or as little as you want to pay. In this bundle you can get:  The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, Deadlight  and Galactic Civilizations II: Ultimate Edition  for as little as a penny,  if you want steam versions then its a $1 minimum.

If you pay more than the average you can also get: Terraria, The King of Fighters XIII Steam Edition and Crusader Kings II (plus 3 DLC packs) as well as the above titles.

If you pay more than $15 you get all the above plus Age of Empires Legacy Bundle. You can decide where the money goes, it can go to the American Red Cross Charity and Child’s play charity, to the developers or to Humble. You can customize exactly how you want to split the payment too! This is a great way to try games that you wouldn’t usually buy and also to bulk up your steam library.

If you bought all these titles separately it would cost you $210 so you can really make a great saving. Games are usually added throughout the 2 weeks the bundles are available for and you automatically gain the extra games.
