You do still have to redeem each game individually by clicking a button next to them. You don't buy the bundle and suddenly have every game in your account. In that regard it's good for the people who have complained about having games they don't want in their libraries from keys which contained multiple.


I'm talking about permissions. I'm very paranoid.

This is entirely impractical, but do the keys redeem to the account signed in? Can you split keys between accounts by signing into Steam as a different user?

I could be wrong, but on my first redemption it asked me if I wanted to link it to my Steam account.  On subsequent games/redemptions, it automagically redeemed them on the account I "connected", no prompting/asking for a different account.

Aw man, I am feeling a strong need to buy some new games.  Humble weekly was my best hope of holding out during the Steam sale.  Now I might cave and buy the OMD and Sherlock Holmes franchise packs.  (Although I just noticed: no Hound of the Baskervilles in SH pack? Thought it was in there before.)

 

Maybe I'll just activate this key for The Cave I have sitting around to tide me over...

 

I need help.

Ummm... if that's all you're getting with that card than something is very wrong.

 

 

You playing in 4K?

I don't know, I think I used to have Nvidia Inspector set up to limit the game to 40ish fps but I've reinstalled drivers and done clean installs since then, I didn't think that could still be affecting things.

 

I just checked Inspector and there are no frame rate limiters set. I turned up all the settings like AA and AO, everything to max. Playing at 1200p, if I should be getting more then I need to know. I've been wondering if my CPU is holding me back, I thought it was pretty good still. i5 3570k but not overclocked.

After you refresh, there is unlink button.

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Just to be sure I made the screen of my glossy monitor all black to be reflective and said Bad Rats three times.

Statistically speaking, it's actually far more likely that you own Magicka and didn't realize it.

 

It's my old steam account (used only for idling) and even steam store doesn't show that it owns magicka.

I may need to buy more from the Steam Halloween sale to ease the pain of this crappy humble weekly.

Are any of the worms games here good? I don't think I've ever passed on two humble weeklys in a row. I guess this is what happens when I buy 91 billion games in a steam sale (jkizzles, 91 billions is more like 4)

 

Worms Armageddon is the best one. The Pinball game's okay, and Blast is a nice Puzzle Bobble-type with annoying character voices. I didn't like Worms Revolution at all, very slow and sluggish and for some reason the worms cough a lot between turns.

 

$1 tier yes, BTA no.

It's bad enough that their recent weekly sales have been filled with games and no DLC - which is intentional so you have to buy the DLC and these companies get more money that way.

 

And now this?

 

I don't like where Humble is going.

It really is disgusting providing 6 full games for $1.00 and then having the audacity not to provide all of the additional, optional content along with it at no extra charge.

 

Humble might as well drop their pants and shit in my mouth right now. Just get it over with.

I wouldn't care too much about basically being required to redeem the keys to your account if they weren't bundling some games 3+ times in bundles.  Fuck that.

 

I ended up grabbing 3 75% off games and realizing that I have a key for Edna & Harvey from a Gala gift (thanks fox!), so I'm set.

Worms, Alien Breed, and Superfrog in the new humble weekly. There's also a new key redemption process. You have to login with Steam and give Humble permission to activate the keys. You no longer get access to them directly.

 

Your Steamgifts points are going to rise a lot slower now.

that ea like im goign to rant on them

lets  tell them to suck their dick at night did ea took over the company cause this is unhumble. now i i cant give anyone the keys that i ddont need yup unhumble can go to hell with me for real. this is crap what if one key i want theni cant give it to friend that nice jerkhumble they should move to north korea where they belong with our corruptd govt. nope

If you're looking for a Halloween game to play tonight that's on the other end of the spectrum from the horror/zombie types, I strongly recommend giving Costume Quest a go..  If it's not sitting in your library from a previous purchase/bundle, it's still 75% $3.74, and definitely worth it.

 

I know I was initially turned off a bit by the "you're trick or treating" description, but that's just a high-level explanation of why you're going around and having actiony semi-turn-based fights with monsters, with time-based button presses, a la Mario/Luigi RPG or PA Adventures 1+2, etc.  The graphic style is warm and perfect, the music is great, just a surprisingly fun game that I've played through each of the past two Halloweens.  This morning my wife and I both found ourselves independently thinking about it and wanting to play it again tonight.

 

A great game to sit and unwind with after going out trick-or-treating, or while handing out candy, it perfectly captures the spirit and excitement you had for Halloween as a young 'un.

Yes, truly.

 

You may not have a problem with that, but I do.  That's not all, they're now selling games that have DRM restrictions and additional layers on top (Paradox accounts). It's just not a path I had hoped they would take.
