Wow, I can't believe that actually added it after all. Think they'll add anymore games?


No...read the post immediately before yours....

Torn between spending 10$ on a lot of good games vs spending 10$ on a lot of good games I won't really play.

I'd honestly rather support the next Humble Indie Bundle.

I already have all these games but I feel I am doing a disservice to my CAGness if I don't pick up this deal. I mean, I can always just cradle it in my arms, hold it, and love on it right? ... or just give it away for Christmas? ... Giving, hmm, scary.

I'm hoping for another 'true' Humble Bundle in about two weeks.

The Double Fine Amnesia Fortnight prototype bundle ends at midnight Pacific time tonight. It's pretty interesting if you're interested in the behind the scenes of game development.

I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's a very different game from DOW II, but it's just as fun.

If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong.

Paid the BTA and got the bundle. Oddly enough, the game I want to try out the most from the bundle is Titan Quest. Remember seeing it on a shelf at Circuit City YEARS ago and thinking it looked interesting.

TQ is a lot of fun. It has a deep skill tree / class system and is the closest you'll come to Diablo 2 since Diablo 2. I enjoyed it immensely while waiting for Diablo 3 which fizzled out quickly.

I love TQ, it's possibly one of the best D2 clones out there.

Rubin saying "let's not get greedy" isn't really cool. I'd be more than happy for them to add Space Marine and Winter Assault then say we have to meet a new BTA in order to unlock those.

I'd happily raise my previous BTA to a new BTA if those games were added.

And that's only the PASSIVE one... both trees combined must be the wet dream (and nightmare) of any self-respecting loot'n'slash fanatic... :cold:

EDIT: Just read that active skills are "itemized" and do not possess a separate skill tree... whew!

Check your PMs. I left that one out of the group that went under my pits.

I played around 15 hours of PoE on an open Beta weekend this spring. It was fucking awesome. Towns/camps are common MMOish, any area with monsters is instanced (solo or coop). I should note that's around a seventh of the passive skill tree. Active skills are determined by gems you slot in and out of sockets on your weapons and armor (and the gems themselves level up, effects are different when slotted into weap or armor). The total system worked quite nicely.

I could never play that game. I'd be paralyzed with indecision.

Nope. I've just verified that it's only GOTY.

As I've already said I own Warhammer DoW Platinum on my main account. I have all components of that bundle installed on my computer at the moment. I also have a secondary steam account and when I log out of my main account and into the second account, each part of the game still appears in my library. The main difference is that the button that usually says "play" on each game says "purchase" under my secondary account.

So I decided to use my DoW Humble key on my secondary account to see which parts of the bundle changed over to "Play". Only the GOTY part changed. Winter Assault still says "Purchase". Strangely enough, when I click on the "Purchase" button, it directs me to DoW Gold. I assume that this is because there is no store page for Winter Assault.....Yet.

$5 says that Winter Assault gets added to the steam store tomorrow. They couldn't have added it before now because it would have let the cat out of the bag that DoW was gonna appear in the THQ Humble Bundle. But I find it hard to believe that it will be unavailable for purchase for long. Not when there's some money to be made from upsales and THQ is still hurting for money.


Thanks for doing the research and clearing that up!

Did some more research on my own also and apparently the Winter assault .exe and files were given to us apparently, but not active. Also Jason Rubin is aware of the issue and posted on twitter that he is looking into it:



This probably means a) The End theory is what is going to happen....WA going to be a separate purchasable game b) Winter assault is just gonna be added to HB buyers keys or c) a mix of the 2 - added to HB buyers but expansion made purchasable in the future.

Just my speculation ;)

Interesting.

It obviously doesn't matter much for me, but it would kinda suck for everybody else if the had to buy the whole damn gold pack just to get Winter Assault. It's kinda strange that it sounded like it hadn't even occurred to Mr Rubin that people couldn't buy WA without buying the Gold pack. I felt for sure that they had planned to add the ability to buy Winter Assault all along.

We all need to make a pact to buy at least 1 THQ game during the Winter Sale.
As for me, I'm buying Titan Quest - Immortal Throne.

Yeah I definitely hear ya on that! I do kind of hope they make winter assault separate purchase. They were kind enough to give GOTY for free basically so I kind of feel the need to give back and purchase some THQ games. God knows they need the money and I want Darksiders 3 :P

I was sad to see how poorly 40k aged. Still a great game though.

It would be great if everyone did that. It kind of hurts to see them bundle all of these games together and have current tally around $4.6M. That's probably not even the production budget of the cheapest title.....okay, I might be exaggerating a little there, lol.
