Quick question: If I receive a gift URL for the Humble Bundle that's the above the average level, will I also receive the bonus games when they unlock? I don't see an option to increase the payment unlike when I buy the bundle myself...

Gift bundles can't increase payment because it would expose what the giver paid, which would defeat the spirit of the gift for many, but you should get the bonuses like any other bundle.

I can't play many games maxed-out w/ 1920x1080 resolution - Rage, BF3, Metro 2033, Witcher 2. 

Hell, and that's just for starters here...

 

Psh, 1920x1080? I run games at 1680x1050 (since it's the max resolution my monitor can display). Once I save a bit more money and move out of these apartments, the first thing I'm going to buy won't be a brand new tv, a fridge, or even a microwave but a new PC with 6 monitors.  :whee:

 

In all seriousness though, I really need to upgrade but I'm quite happy with my PC. Built in '07 and still runs most games on max, the only thing I've upgraded was my graphics card from a 8800 GTS to a 470 GTX back in '10. Whenever XIV was going to get released, which ran like ass on my computer compared to ARR.

Total bundles just ticked past 1.6 million(!!) a little while ago. Average is up to a unaffordable (note: sarcasm) $4.82 now thanks to some big donations including a $5,000 chunk.

 

Regarding Metro 2033 - I had SLIed GTX 460 1GB cards and that was the only game in the past couple of years that I couldn't just set the rez to 1920x1200 and throw all the sliders to the right with the exception sometimes of having to sacrifice higher levels of AA. Far Cry 2 benched at 100 fps; BF3 was smooth around 50-70 depending on level and how much stuff was blowing up; but Metro required a drop to 1680x1050 and turning off some high end eye candy to get it working.

 

Then I replaced the SLI setup with a single eVGA GTX 670 2GB OC and Metro was my bitch again. Games like BF3 and the Batman Arkhams which gagged with AA now run with it. The only concession I've made was to turn off TressX hair in Teen Tomb Ho which didn't look good enough to make the frame rate trade worth it.

 

This is a 4-year-old rig, other than the 15-months old video card. Core i7-920 @ 3.6 GHz with 12 GB RAM. A boss video card with at least 2GB RAM is pretty much mandatory these days for AAA titles. A GTX 570 or 650 Ti is about as low as you can get away with.

Heads up for anyone wanting the Dead Space 3 DLC "Awakened", it's $5 now at Origin, rather than the $10 it use to be at full price. Many different games on sale there as well but nothing too crazy I don't think. As  well I hope Crysis 3 is a bonus today since the DLC for that "The Lost Island" is half off too from $15 to $7.50.

The bonus games are likely coming in less than 8 hours.  Since these are bonus, I would like games that I wanted to try but would never ever thought of buying, such as Syndicate or Spore.  

 

Any good guesses (aside from those revealed in the database entry)?

I've still got a measly amount of money on NFS:Most Wanted as an Origin exclusive bonus. There is a bunch of DLC for post-bundle profits, and it's base price is $19.99, same as almost every other game in the minimum tier. I have no actual proof of this being added, but it's my best reasonable guess.

I think the leaked list is probably accurate, but I would have expected Mass Effect 2 to be one of the games (since it's been bundled already). Another sim game (be it SimCity, more Sims 3 DLC, or Spore which I include as a sim game of sorts) would have made since to me as well. Other than that Dead Space 2 was my best guess, but it was on the list anyway.

 

Honestly, just getting the Dead Space trilogy for this price was enough for me, since it's a series I've been wanting to try but was reluctant to buy do to being a huge wuss :cold: everything else is just gravy ;)


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

Origin store has Crysis, Mass Effect 3, and Dragon Age Origins for $5.99 each right now. What else is included in that sale? Battlefield 3, The Sims 3, and Dead Space. I wouldn't think any Bioware titles would be included, but I hope they're hinting at something. We'll find out in an hour.

Never had this happen to me before.

I guess there's a limit on how many you can buy.

I remember last week on steamgifts people were reporting there was like a 3 bundle limit per payment method within a 36 hour period because of gamestop buying mass keys to resell..not sure if true about the gamestop part.

 

Also Motoki is your avatar Anarchy Online character butt or am I just imagining things.

Isn't this a means for individual gamers to get some cheap games while helping charity, not for a bunch of Ferengi to stock up their trading larders for nothing? Just saying.

Well this would have been purchase #6. So i guess 5 is the limit. Only I made the first 5 purchases on the first day of the sale. So it wasn't exactly over a short period of time.

 

I hope this counter only applies to each bundle. I'd hate to be frozen out of a weekly deal because of this.

Hmm that can't be right, I bought 5 on the first day via amazon, then bought another on friday...maybe they keep changing things because so many have sold in a short period of time.

Oh, last night I decided to increase the payment on a few bundles that I've bought over the past few weeks to the BTA level. That must be it.

I got locked out after only three last week, but it was only for that payment method on this bundle. One for myself and two gifts. I later bought another (BTA) bundle with a different payment method and it went through.

Less than a week on the timer, and no bonuses to speak of.

Well, 2 pm has come and gone without any bonus games. The THQ bundle added games 7 days later, but the Deep Silver Bundle added their bonuses 8 days later.
