I liked FC2 well enough (not that it was flawless) but then I never played FC1.

Everyone hated Far Cry 2. In reality you normally would judge a sequel based on its predecessor but in this case you can't. FC3 either fix'ed everything in FC2 people hated or simply got rid of it. Watch some gameplay videos (there are a lot of long ones out there) and you can see it is a totally different beast. Gamespot has a 90 minute video of where they were taking q&a from a live stream while playing and showing off the stuff that was being asked/explained. It sold me on the game. Totalbiscuit (who I normally don't care for) even has an excellent video on the game that is around 45 minutes long.


I loved Far Cry 2; it is one of my favorite FPS. I've been eagerly awaiting Far Cry 3 since its reveal and am glad that people aren't letting their irrational hate of Far Cry 2 get in the way of trying it.

The hate is entirely rational.

uggh I wish the winter sale would hurry up and start already. :lol: I spend more time looking for sales than actually playing the games I buy.

Far Cry 3

Used a vpn and played for about 2 hours so far. Pretty freaking cool I have to say. It is quite beautiful and fun. So much stuff to do. Take over an outpost and you get a bunch of side quests plus all the exploring. I dig the wildlife stuff a lot. I was circling around a outpost to figure out how to take them out stealthy and next thing I know I hear a growl and turn around and see a tiger coming towards me. I run because I don't want to alert the outpost, so I run to it and the pirates in it had their backs to me at that moment and the tiger peeled off of me and went after them and killed them all and I killed the tiger



You have exposed yet another strategy for outwitting a cunning, ferocious animal. When being chased by said animal always run towards a crowd! Video games can be educational.

I am in the camp of FC 1 > FC2 but I didn't HATE FC2 enough to make me skip FC3. It looks pretty awesome.

EDIT: Sucks that it's a single key again unlike last time - I really only needed the Company of Heroes stuff but oh well guess it keeps Steamgifts clean. :D

Steam weekend deal:

Unreal Tournament 3 Black - $6.79 (66% off)
Unreal Deal Pack - $13.59 (66% off)

These will be cheaper during the winter sale. Unreal Deal Pack was $9.99 during the summer sale, and UT3 Black was $4.99.

LOL. I paid 4$ just recently for Darksiders 1.
Anybody have any idea if there will be bonuses? I already own all these games.

I expect so, but probably not Darksiders 2 or anything like that. Nexuiz seems extremely likely to me.

That is awful. Just a warning to anyone buying this, they only give a separate key for Saint's Row The Third.

Why the hell they gave individual keys last bundle and only give one key for six games this bundle is beyond me.

I am truly cheap. Bought this as a Christmas gift for a friend who doesn't follow deals or bundles at all :D

I beat the average and I put all the money toward THQ. I normally let the money be split as default but I don't want to lose THQ!

I was trying to be fast in case SR3 drove the price up faster than usual, but I guess I should include the games in the bundle.

Games:
Darksiders*
Metro 2033*
Red Faction Armageddon*
Company of Heroes*
Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts*
Company of Heroes Tales of Valor

Beat the Average to unlock:
Saints Row the Third*

*Soundtrack included

Oh man, I'm quite excited about this bundle - I had been waiting for Saints Row The Third to reach $5, and now it's the Beat the Average bonus. Between that and Darksiders, this is definitely worth the donation.

To think, I just recently grabbed Metro 2033 for $2.99 off GMG. Well, part of being a CAG is knowing when a better deal surfaces for the very same game.

To be the average or not...I already own SR3. But.....damnit THQ, you are one of the best publishers left. Why do UBI/EA/Activision have to persist and THQ goes down! THQ and 2K and Squeenix are so great. These guys are reasons why PC gaming is so great, very reasonable. Versus Activision, lets price our games at 60$ and keep them that way for 5 years.
Does it include any DLC? I'd beat the average if it included all DLC. hehe.
That average is coming down. 5.30$ now.

You can get a bunch of non-indie games for as little as a dollar and you are really going to complain about not getting separate keys for them all?

Anyway most of their past Bundles have been like this.

If you aren't that interested or already have some/most of the games just pay a dollar and call it good knowing that is still the cheapest you will ever get any single one of those games.

You don't need to be able to pay a dollar and then turn around and hustle trade off 4 of the keys on top of it.

Being cheap is all fine and good but there is something to be said for being reasonable too.

Well, I already own Metro 2033 and SR3, but I decided to BTA anyway. Probably gift SR3 to a friend to get him to see the light (PC gaming = the light). Being my first HB, when will they announce any bonuses (if there are any)?

The last bundle you are referring to was the Android bundle. Every MAIN humble has always had one key for the main games, another key for any BTA.

Kinda sad to see THQ having to do this though. Hopefully they don't go under.

I do have a steam related question though. Since Endless Space is having a free weekend, when I click the click here button to download it. Nothing happens, the page just refreshes. Anyone else having this issue or is it just me.

Could not resist. Bought a BTA bundle even though all I need is Tales of Valor. I'm just going to give away the SR3 key.

The most frequent argument I hear is re-spawning check-points. Heaven forbid you have to shoot a lot in a first person shooter...

No, I don't think there are any DLC included, just the base game.

I thought this bundle was a joke that had just been passed around CAG over the last few weeks. I had no idea it would become real. This is a crazy deal. I hope it breaks a new record for Humble.

EDIT: I have most of these games already too, but for the first time in HIB history, I bought two BTA bundles.

Yeah but those check points are all over the damn place and they respawn like 30 seconds after you leave them.

This just seems a bit snobbish. Humble has done e-book and music bundles before; did the indie devs complain about that? I like indie bundles, but in the unlikely event that this helps THQ remain solvent, I'm 100% behind that.

Very unlikely.
