The implication is just the opposite. Check out the GoHastings thread for an example.


That was my point exactly, but thanks anyway for restating it.


Dont quite understand what you all mean by all of this? Does this mean the bundle should appear within the next few days or not? Either way, I am quite happy with the last humble bundle for android 3 as that is the only one I have had the joy of taking part in. But still, that bundle was great and has hundreds of hours of gameplay in it. If this next bundle is anything like that then I am really looking forward to all future Humble Bundles.


What this means is that, though it is in the system currently as "HIB 6," it may not be the sixth numbered bundle but another sub-bundle like when they do one for a single developer or the Android rehashes. Probably the former rather than the latter since they just did an Android one.

Whatever it is, it should appear very soon.

If you look at the registry it actually has a lot of HIB updates, most likely fixing all the old titles to be more accurate. So if they fixed them, it wouldn't make much sense to screw up already again.


Yeah, all of the older humble bundles are now listed correctly if you check the your licenses/subscriptions.

If the Android bundle is all you know then, son, you ain't seen nothing yet~


Hahaha, while I definitely appreciate you comment, I have read about past bundles and have already taken part in the steam 2012 summer sale as well as the amazon 2012 summer sale. This last HIBfA3 (especially since it happened a few days after I got my first android) was absolutely amazing for me. While I have not gotten all the games in the past HIBs, I can safely say that I have gotten most of the games I want from them even if I have paid a few more dollars for them. This last bundle was just the icing on the cake as I paid a buck for a bunch of awesome games I did not have on either android or the PC. This combined with the recent indie gala and groupees bundles, I am a new PC gamer that is quite happy. My 360, wii, n64, and original xbox will never be sold, and these cheap PC games along with the power of my new PC can and will never be replaced.

Ahh, thank you very much for explaining. I guess its just like when steam added games to their registry yet we still were not 100% sure of their sales. HIB is just more secretive by not even letting us know what games they will be offering. Either way it is great that we all know another bundle is coming soon.

EDIT: sorry about double post. noticed other post after I posted my first one.

I should have been clearer about the DI/DO stuff, but I meant it was hard to progress in the story if your friends weren't doing it at the same pace as you (missions greyed out and such) and the auto-level-scaling of enemies in a mixed-leveled group was a bit frustrating as well. But I agree with those other issues; thanks for mentioning them.


I played Borderlands solo (140 hours according to steam -- though that overcounts a bit due to extended afk pauses) and regularly found myself overleveled. I found it WillowTree quite useful to knock down my level (and reset the occasional lets-do-that-again quest).

Who knows, it might just be me. An ex exploited my trusting nature as a fox in love and released many compromising pictures of me, including one on a trampoline.

I BTA'd and got a Steam key before it released and activated it without a hitch, and the store page says I own it now that it's officially released, so yes. :)

So I bought the Torchlight II 4-pack and it seems to be glitched. I dunno if anybody has mentioned it yet- didn't bother looking through the entire thread.

You're supposed to get 4 copies of TL and 4 copies of TL2- 3 giftable of each. I only got 3 copies of TL2- 1 for me, and 2 giftable copies. I got 4 giftable copies of TL- dunno if that's a glitch, or because I already own TL.

Looked around and it seems several other people have had similar problems. I saw something that said that the missing copy of TL2 will show up in you inventory after a few hours, but I'm not sure whether or not that's the case, so I still contacted Steam support.

You're supposed to get one copy of TL2 already registered to your account, 3 giftable copies of TL2 and 4 giftable copies of TL.

I just saw that this morning. Pretty great news! Maybe a lot of people don't care (judging from the comments in that article), but I think it's always a good sign when large companies realize that intrusive DRM harms paying customers, not software pirates.

I really hope this means they're going to remove the always on from existing games that have it. I could finally buy AssCreed Revelations.

I thought this was sort of old news though and despite what they said last year they still kept always on DRM in a few games?

Are they saying they are completely removing it? Or is the guy basically regurgitating what they said last year?

Greenlight is about to get a bit more manageable to browse. They're instituting a $100 fee to list a game and instead of throwing the entire list at you will, they'll show you a smaller mix of popular and new games.

The fee won't be profit, they are donating that money to charity. $100 is a bit much, but if you can't throw $100 down to try and get your game listed it probably isn't something that's going to have much of a shot. I'm not sure how much different it would be at $50 though. I'm sure a small dev in a developing country who is working without pay until the game releases will feel it a lot more, too.

announcement


Cool. I posted here when Greenlight first started that they needed $100 fee or something to get rid of the junk. It just got too unmanageable to rate games honestly.

Wooo, found it. I like my idea that if the game makes it you recoup the fee, the rest can still go to charity.

Until they get an initial filter to get rid of the garbage before it can even be voted, I don't see anything making it.

There should be a fee to get your stuff listed on greenlight to help clean it up. $100 sounds reasonable. Then if your game makes it you recoup those initial costs.


Sorry for double post. On mobile so no multi-quote unless I manually do it, and my phone hates copy/paste on cag for some reason.

Yea for Ubisoft. I hope they stick with this very standard process. I never understood why Anno had (has) such hard DRM. I hope that's scaled back too.

Steam arbitrarily names the HIB with whatever number they feel like. Odds are this is another bundle like the android or a themed dev bundle. I wouldn't expect HIB 6 until around Xmas.

I suspect today or tomorrow with a higher likelihood of the latter. It used to show up in the registry pretty well in advance and you'd know the games like a week early. The last few have been added only a day or two before the start of the bundle and then updated with games a couple of hours before it's live.

Well, it's a positive step forward for Ubisoft to even say things like that publicly, so that's good. I'd still prefer if they removed all DRM in the instances where their games are sold on places like Steam where the Steam client already verifies content ownership. But we'll accept baby steps from Ubisoft at this point.

>.> Or if you were watching you were able to pick it up for $0.99 on Google Play this weekend, thread.

I think that's an old Ubi announcement. Remember that always-on just doesn't go over well (e.g. Diablo 3) even the Big Shill review sites slammed AC2 for the always-on DRM. Personally I refused to by AC2 and AC:B until the always-on bit was dropped.

Both of those are in Amazon's upcoming 1c Bundle that should be their PCDD DotW starting 9/9. Should be steam keys involved, but we haven't seen a complete list of what's steam and what's not.
