My prediction for the bonus game(s) to be revealed in a week: The below average content from the Amnesia Fortnight bundle.

My prediction for the reaction to this revelation: Disappointment.

Personally I don't even consider EFF a charity. It's more like a political action committee/special interest group. They might have commendable goals but it isn't as if they're feeding starving kids in Africa. Child's Play is nice but I believe I've read where the Penny Arcade guys pay themselves six figure salaries to head the charity. Funny stuff.


This is why I'm grateful for the "Humble Sliders" compared to a forced allocation by something like IGS. The ability to not give money to either of those groups makes purchases less of a dilemma for me.


This may be a weird/selfish question but does anyone know if the charitable donations for the Humble Bundle are tax-deductible?


Generally, in the US, you can only deduct the amount that exceeds the fair market value of the merchandise or services received. MSRP for these games being over $100 (according to HB), you'd have to donate more than that only to be able to deduct the difference.


I doubt that Humble Bundle, Inc. is itself a non-profit entity. Your donations may be promised to a third-party charity, but it is Humble Bundle which gets to do the deducting.

Just stuff that is hate-worthy.

Didn't have a single one of these games (and have never bought a humble bundle before), so I decided to throw in a buck to get Stacking, Psychonauts and Costume Quest. I probably wont beat any of them or even play them very much, but I've been interested in at least trying Psychonauts and Stacking, and there are many reasons I can justify spending a dollar on them (gives money to charity, support a company who makes unique games, it's only a dollar, I've made dumber purchases like spending money on android games).

But there is a chance that I might like one of the games as well. Wish I had paid more attention to the humble bundle a while back when the THQ bundle was going on.

it really is an excellent game, one of if not my favorite games for the original xbox. That said, a few of the levels could definitely have been better put together. Fantastic experience overall, but has all the typical Double Fine "charm and humor before gameplay" you'd expect.

Can't you just transfer your Amazon Payments balance to your bank account and use it as cash? That's what I always do.

I just checked my account (hadn't in a long time) and along with the option to withdraw money to my bank account I see they added a new option to buy an Amazon GC directly. Do you not have that option?

If it wasn't for the pre-order or the $70 shirts, BTA would be like $1.50. Brutal Legend is worth about 99 cents, according to eBay.

Ah, I misunderstood the question, my bad guys. No, there is no way to convert Amazon GC into Amazon Payments that I am aware of.

No, if you're not going to BTA, then you should toss in $1 soon. Bonus are free to those who bought before they were added, but if you buy after they are added you have to beat the (usually higher) BTA.

If you buy the $1 bundle and they add new games to the BTA, you get all new games they later add to the BTA(At least you did as of 1-2 bundles ago).

Went in for $1 since I missed the previous bundle that had Psychonauts, but I couldn't justify $8 just for Brutal Legend.
