With most humble bundles, I end up buying extra copies (as I did with this one). Usually I don't bother claiming the keys for those bundles until I have a need for them. This helps me to keep track of which bundle keys have been used.

This current THQ bundle poses a problem for me though. While I think this bundle helped THQ quite a bit, I'd still say that it's likely that THQ eventually dies off. This has me wondering if I will still be able to claim that key 6, 9 or 12 months from now.

Does anybody else think that might be a risk?

I think your fine. I'm sure HB pools the number of keys by how many bundles they have sold.

Also, the HB wasn't meant to be a cure all for THQ. But it does give them more exposure and will entice gamers who bought into the bundle to purchase other THQ games to continue the series.

Is there a way I can access my order of the THQ Bundle other than from the email they sent me? The email somehow disappeared from my inbox and my amazon payment email confirming the purchase disappeared as well. I have the emails they sent me saying they added new games, but I dont't have the email for the purchase and link to the steam keys. It's weird because I have all the other emails from humble bundle from other bundles i bought.

You should be able to access it from your account. Just look for the "sign in/sign up" button at the top of the page, then push the "my account" button. All your purchases will be listed there.

It would be great if everyone did that. It kind of hurts to see them bundle all of these games together and have current tally around $4.6M. That's probably not even the production budget of the cheapest title.....okay, I might be exaggerating a little there, lol.

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but they've split off Winter Assault now.

And increased the price while they were at it: Winter Assault is listed as $20 on the Store (the same price as GOTY+Winter Assault used to be.) Additionally, there used to be a bundle of Gold+Dark Crusade for $30, but that now contains GOTY+Dark Crusade.

TL;DR version: It used to cost $30 for GOTY+WA+DC, now it'll cost you $40 for GOTY+WA+DC (that's the same if you already have GOTY, too.)

Today is the last day to purchase the bundle. There's about 6 hours and 45 minutes left.

It looks like it will hit $5 million.

In other words, they are treating GOTY as a trial version and then chalking up prices on expansions to get the rest of the game used to be cheaper.

Sounds reasonable.

I've said this before, but I doubt they'll stop here - I'm sure the rest of their older games & their expansions will show up in the Humble THQ Bundle #2 (probably in January some time...)

I actually bought 4 copies. Yet I only have 2 steam accounts.

*shrugs*

I guess they'll make good gifts for people who wont start using steam until after this bundle closes.

Speaking of this bundle closing, That happens in about 30 minutes.

By the time that happens, Steam will have completely taken over the world and we'll have to input Steam keys just to continue breathing. Keys for games will be like "lolwut?"

Humble Bundle V took in $5,108,725.09.

Humble THQ is coming dangerously close to overtaking that mark. As I post this, they're about 25K away.

I'm surprised that HIB5 held its own and possibly exceeded a bundle comprised of AAAs.

If this bundle was during the steam sale with a coal event I am sure it would have went way, way higher.

The THQ employees already said their contributions all went to charity [inlcuding Rubin and Ferrell].

As for the actual sales, I'm disappointed. I thought it would easily reach 1 million bundles sold.

I don't know anyone idiotic enough to give their contribution to themselves, considering everyone would think your a horrible person. I was merely saying it because I thought it would be funny if they had.

I think the lack of cross platform support may have been a cause for it not exceeding 1 million purchases or beating the HIB 5 money. 40% of the purchases are usually Mac + Linux. It defaults the platform you purchase from, and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of Mac purchasers buy it from their laptops and then go on to play the games on a PC, but I think there's still a large number of people who bought the record setting HIB #5 but had no interest in this bundle because of the platform and DRM.

Devil's Advocate, but Humble Indie Bundle was created with Indie in mind. I can't believe some people were upset when they offered this THQ bundle, it wasn't part of HIB7, but separate. So can you imagine the rage if the average was $10-$20?

Peronsally, I don't care about Indie/THQ debate, I just want cheap games and HIB is my favorite. I'm really looking forward to HIB7.

Also, I had already bought/beat Darksiders, Red Faction, Warhammer, and was planning to buy SR3 GOTY until this bundle showed up. Military shooters don't interest me. Still bought because SR3 alone is worth it.

Is THQ Bundle 2 really happening? Anything else thinking Darksiders II will be the BTA?

HIB used to be my favorite, but they've so quickly begun rehashing games and offering only/mostly games that I'll say "Hey, that is supposed to be a great game!", but I'll never get around to it, because it's yet another quasi-puzzle-indie game (like Rochard, or bit.trip.runner) to throw into the pile of those types that amass in my library.

Now if they offered a game like Amnesia again? They'd capture my interest again.
