The Humble Indie Bundle 5

So, a new Humble Bundle has come out, and I know some people are feeling like these Humble Bundles are a bit overdone.  I will agree that the games found in the last one or two did not particularly appeal to me, but wow - this new one?  Pretty slick in my opinion.


Here is what they are promoting:

Pay what you want for Psychonauts, LIMBO, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. If you choose to pay more than the average price, you will also receive Bastion! Each game comes with its soundtrack in both lossless (FLAC) and MP3 formats.
Each of these DRM-free games works on Mac, Windows, and Linux, and can optionally be redeemed on Steam if you choose more than $1. Bundle buyers can also benefit the Child's Play Charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, non-profits doing excellent work in the name of gamers worldwide.
And hey, if you're interested?  This is where you can find out more.

  2. I think it's a pretty good idea.

  3. First Humble Bundle for me, and what a great one to start with. Played Limbo before, but haven't touched the others, though I've heard good things.

    Limbo is still as amazing as I remember it being.

  4.  At least you should be able to plug through them somewhat quickly.  I think Limbo took me about 4 hours, Amnesia around 6 or 7.  I haven't played more than a bit of Bastion so far, but I've read around 9 hours for that one.  All three of those titles are incredibly solid though, and I'm a huge fan of game soundtracks to boot. :)

  5.  Agreed.  These usually come with Steam keys too.  My son's got a free account, so this would legitimize his account cheaply. hehe

  6.  Limbo was amazing, I concur.  I gave it a very good review if you're curious:

  7. Always great stuff in these bundles.  I seem to be overlapping much more with what I already have these days, but suppose being charitable is good.  Only two I don'o thave are Psychonauts and S&S.   Certainly worth it with the soundtracks.

  8.  That's exactly where I'm at game-wise.  Though, you get a steam code too you can use to 'verify' a steam account, so I may pick one up just to plug a few games into my son's account too

  9. So, I was coming here to rage against the machine, after seeing they added 3 new "locked" games to the bundle today.
    I was thinking, "Wow, so I purchased early, and got "Bastion" because I paid above average...but that means I have to buy ANOTHER bundle to get the new "locked" games!?"

    That's what I was thinking...until our good friend that never completes games (or blog posts for that matter) from http://incompletegaming.blogspot.com/, said he thought I would get them for already paying above the average price originally.
    I didn't receive an email update on it (yet), so I found the original and checked it...SURE ENOUGH! All the added games are listed.
    That is full of win!

  10.  ROFL!

    yup, I got the email about that a bit earlier today.  That's generally how they handle those add-ons.  Really, they're very good in general about making sure you get plenty of good games.  Guess you'll have to save that righteous anger for another time, like when your coffee maker breaks down. :)

  11. "Guess you'll have to save that righteous anger for another time"

    I'm sure there's an E3 post coming up soon...

    Yeah that incomplete guy hardly completes anything he buys.  I mean, re-beating VVVVVV on 3DS or Portal 2 doesn't count!

    I'm really going to ramp up the blog posts too back to 1/month too, haha.

    Coffee:  Will be watching the SuperMeatBoy leaderboards now and expecting good things.
