Got in on this. First Humble Bundle for me. Wasn't sure if these were legit or not, but if they typically stay around this price-point... I can foresee my Steam Library growing substantially....


Humble Bundle is, I believe, the most legit of the bundles. They don't typically stay at this price though. The value of the base games is so high that there have been a ton of $1 purchases. However, if you get in early it's pretty easy to get them at this price. Even when they're higher you'll still find the games that you can pay what you want for to be a great deal.

Ever since this particular bundle launched, I've said that they made a mistake of having only SR3 as the BTA game - had they put SR3 *and* Darksiders as BTA, they would have had many more BTA purchases and possibly higher revenue overall (though that's a tough call, since many many people, myself included, already own most of these games).

I didn't own any of the games (for PC that is) so this whole bundle is great for me. Now whenever I get to playing them is another story....

How do you go about beating the average if you hadn't previously?

Click on the link they sent you via email (Your unique HB URL) and there should be a "Like what we're doing increase your donation" thing at the top. Click on that and you should be able to increase it to BTA.

I always thought you could add additional funds to your purchase, but I don't know if that is still the case.


**EDIT**
nm, Fox cleared it up for us

If you already bought it but didn't beat the average go to your bundle page (you should have received a link in your email) and at the top above your Steam keys it says, "Like what we're doing? Click here to increase your order amount!" From there you can add money and it'll tell you exactly what you need to BTA. This only works for personal purchases. Gift bundles cannot be increased.

edit: beaten, but I'll leave it up so we don't get questions about gift bundles which tends to happen.

Oh ok, thanks everyone for all the help! For anyone else, this was giving me the problem, you have to have the codes redeemed (on the Humble website) for that option to show up.

It's nice, isn't it? I was in your shoes 6 months ago or so. Every bundle was exciting and new and every game was a new addition to my growing collection.

Now? Well, every bundle has 1 or 2 repeat games that I end up stuck with. And no, you'll never play them all. ;)

Pretty sure multiplayer doesn't work unless through Hamachi. At least that's what I heard about the non-Steam version. Not sure about the Steam version, could be the same.

I was able to host a MP game through steam a few times (though I have the Immortal throne expansion as well) It was kinda wonky though.

Dawn Of War Winter Assault just got updated. This is the first time that this I've ever seen any of the DoW games updated. Seems to be interesting timing.

Make of it what you will.

There is no direct link to Winter Assault. I guess it's part of DoW Gold: http://store.steampo...1_7_7_151_150_1

Well we saved thq! Miracles do happen! Cue relate-able theme song!

Victory is not about winning battles, its about how long it takes for the person beating you to give up.

I believe that we'll see DOW Gold added to the bundle. Maybe not, but with the DOW update this past week, plus Winter Assault now, the timing IS good for this.

We'll see. I definitely hope it gets added!

Well, Jason Rubin said today on Twitter "Another addition coming". So we can expect to see another game added for sure now.

Well, I do hope they add Immortal Throne since TQ is really not the same game without it(heck, it won't run on many systems without it, including my laptop). But since I already have TQ Gold, I do hope they add the DOW stuff too!

I don't know how many games will be added, but Jason said "addition", not "additions". Not really sure if we should read into that too much or not.

I can't believe I bought all the games on this list, except one, and I haven't played any of them yet. Now I got them all again (for that one), for one dollar! I should just not buy games anymore, that just sucks...

To be fair if THQ weren't facing Financial troubles this bundle wouldn't have happened. So no need to feel bad about having most of the games in the bundle.

No, you don't.


Can somebody help me sort this out? I think I own Puzzle Agent 1, but it's not on my Steam list? Was it in a bundle?

Wow - they did add Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War GOTY after all...

Not sure what they're expecting to get out of this - I doubt it'll drive any more sales.
