There was a time in the distant past, when a game not appearing before meant there was at least a slight uptick in the possibility of a higher-quality game.  That time has gone.  Now there is just shovelware bundle after shovelware bundle....kinda like IG......mostly......

The issue is that even IF this had all high-profile games, there wouldn't be enough coverage for those developers to come back for more. IGN and Kotaku and those video game reporters all over the internet are willing to write heaps of praise on "bad" Humble bundles yet not a single word on other sites. Even the time when a Groupees bundle was "sponsored" by IGN or someone, it was simply to do a huge giveaway and not really about visibility of the site. The lesser known music artists also aren't as appreciative of more exposure like game devs are.

The lesser known music artists also aren't as appreciative of more exposure like game devs are.

They didn't make it big because of how they were run, the people they burned, and the quality of what they offered. Humble's origins never resulted in not paying developers or offering multiple copies of mystery games to get rid of extra keys. It wasn't until the IGN takeover that they began screwing customers by offering the same games for cheaper and taking away credit. Groupees is better as a niche bundling site, they get to offer publisher games from Interplay exclusively while being small enough to experiment without much backlash. There's a welcomed leniency to be had in their relative obscurity.

 

What rcsample said is that there's too much garbage on Steam to equate the phrase "new to bundles" to being worth purchasing. Otakumaker has a lot of bundle debuts for their 99 cent trash games, but at least that's only 33 cents for 10 games in a group buy. Groupees has what I'd call a premium pricing structure, and offering the same quality games in less quantity for $2 or more is much less appealing.

For those of us smart, very smart people who didn't do the BM subscription the $2 presale is now on for the 34th BM. There are apparently 6 games and the guesses so far are ...
 
Rocket Fist
 
What The Box
 
Here's the hints ...

That might also help rcsample after he eats an entire Jack's frozen pizza in one sitting.

On that Glitch Black bundle.  It appears that their full digital discography is only $2 on bandcamp.

I missed the BM preorder, probably would have bought it. That's another thing about Poopees, not only are their clues obscure but they release these bundles "soon" with some random ass time frame to build up hype. All it does is build resentment and make them seem unreliable. Set a 48-hour window from announcement to release, dumbasses. No way I'm spending $4.50.

 

Lmao at the $4 tier on the Glitch Black bundle if the same albums are all available for $2.

Was there a pre-odor on the glitch black? I really don't want pay retail...so I will pass on that pile of poop

Almost the same albums.  That Singles Compilation is not actually on their own Bandcamp page.  Those look to all have been in compilation albums for a different label.  (And it looks like most of those albums are pay-what-you-want/free.)

 

Also, two or three of those albums have been in prior Groupees bundles.

There was not a pre-order or odor for glitch black bundle.  If I was allowed to buy with groupees coins, I would go for the $4 tier.  $2 tier it is then

another music bundle pre-order

https://groupees.com/awitw3

$2 min.  42 music selections

 

quote from groupees Christian:

If you didn’t get the first to AWITW (A Walk In The Woods) Bundles, then this is a massive synthwave music bundle at a crazy price.  If you did get the last one, you’ll find the entire bundle in the first $1 min tier, and then a bunch of new releases in higher priced tiers and bonuses

 

20% goes to World Wildlife Fund

The 'Donate to charity' box seems redundant since every Groupees purchase is essentially a donation to the "Help fund Yanni's next vacation to Bora Bora" charity.

Tell me when there's a donation to help fund Yanni and Shitty's next vacation to Alcatraz. I'll be the top donor!

Here we go:

 

 

He comes from the future on a mission to save the World from itself, deluded by visions of cyborgs this futuristic Don Quixote, his lance, a Thermal Nuclear Magnum 357,000, his Dulcinea, an ample-breasted Barista at Big Bucks, takes up arms against the numbing influences of modern life and in particular pop culture’s embrace of the violent hero archetype, a bumbling, bungling knight errant, 8 feet, 375 pounds of cybergenetic poultry, the perfect killing machine, who through his mayhem-laced adventures from Brooklyn to Bombay, and points in between, reveals the fundamental quality of a true hero, a deep and abiding humanity, his name, Cyber-Chicken, or to his friends at Big Bucks in Brooklyn, Jonny Cappuccino….
