Wanting (and not owning) both Pillars and NBA, I'm pretty happy right out of the gate. Overcooked looks like a lot of fun, so I'll try that, but the one I'm installing first is War for the Overworld, which looks heavily influenced by Dungeon Keeper. Good bundle for me.

 

Even though I'm skipping the next (own KF2), I want to cheerlead for it a bit. If you've only tried KF, or maybe KF2 six months ago or more, I'd urge you to give it another look. They've added so much content since it first launched in early access, and the gameplay has improved a great deal. There are some truly wacky Workshop maps to play if that's not enough. And, as fox alluded to, the Weekly Events have been a lot of fun: shrinking or growing enemies, special fleshpound waves, headshot-only, and they all come with rewards.

 

If you want a little variety, try the map called The Descent... It's a string of ten smallish maps that play out randomly. Tripwire hinted at making more maps like this. Of course, it's a horde game when all is said and done, so if that turns you off then the bells and whistles aren't going to matter. But if it's been a while, or you've never tried it, it's worth a shot.

Not surprised about KF2 being bundled as has been on PSN.  Forgive the ignornant question, but is there Single Player content for KF2?  Is there any interest in having CAG KF2 time?

I hate to speak for others but from what I've gathered on from the thread that its one of Foxy's favorite series.  I think KF2 is viewed as being the weaker of the two but it was still in EA at that time.

KF2 is a horde/wave game and, as such, you can play any level solo. It can be a little more difficult without team mates to bail you out, but it's entirely possible to make it through all the waves and defeat the boss by yourself. Of course, without others to carry on if you die, there's no chance of you respawning at the end of the wave and it's game over. There is no campaign or story -- just sixteen official levels to choose from and a bunch more in the workshop. 

 

As to your second question: I've played KF2 with the bros on many evenings.

It's very much a multiplayer experience.  You can play solo but you'll eventually hit a wall as you advance in difficulties.  It's also not particularly fun playing solo, either.  Not sure if things have changed between KF1 and KF2, but the KF1 community was miles friendlier than similar communities like Left4Dead, etc.

Not wow'ed by the bonuses.  KF2 for $12 is something I'll seriously consider mooby.  I'm sure it'll be another year before it hits $5.

fify

 

what's the difference b/w KF series and Left for Dead? These are all zombie co-op HORDE games to me.

L4D has you moving from level to level, heading for safe rooms whereas KF2 has all the action coming to you.  You'll want to move for various reasons (not the least of which is to avoid getting swarmed) but the map is more of an arena than an area to be navigated through.  Speaking of, L4D has an attempt at a story going through it where KF is very much just "Zombies attacking, kill the waves, kill the boss"

 

KF2 has a class system that gives you different abilities and extra exp for particular types of weapons.  Also some classes are more equipped to handle certain types of zombies although all of them can be killed by anyone with enough bullets.  So you're never screwed for not having a [class] but you're distinctive beyond what gun you just picked up.

 

Agreed that the KF population seemed much less bitchy and try-hard than the L4D people.  I've played a bit of KF2 solo and it can be fun for a few levels or if you're just trying to grind a class up but it's nothing you're going to dedicate yourself to.

Also, in KF you earn money between waves that you can use to upgrade weapons, but more ammo, make it rain on teammates. L4D is your typical FPS pick stuff up off the ground weapons.

Pretty good bundle for me, Got 2 games I kept passing up during sales (Pillars and OTC), plus Overcooked. Also got NBA 2k17 so can be lazier in picking up 18 now =p.

L4D is objective-oriented. You have to get to the end of the level without dying, with events like powering up a carousel that attracts endless hordes of zombies in between. The focus is on surviving rather than killing everything, since the zombie waves literally ARE endless. You don't get cash to buy more ammo or health, you have to find it and if you run out you die. It also has a survival mode, which is basically KF without currency. You start with everything you need and hold out for as many waves as possible in your arena. And it has an AI director adapting the difficulty constantly in all game modes, something that was introduced last year in KF2.

 

It is definitely more of a try-hard game because all but 2 special infected will kill you if your multiplayer teammates don't react quick enough. In multiplayer modes, 4 people get to be survivors and 4 get to be infected. The infected team spawns every 20 seconds, and your character is helpless if either a smoker, hunter, charger, or jockey gets you. Any special infected can instantly kill you in the right hands.

 

So say you're starting out in the safe room at the beginning of the Mercy Hospital level. You open the door and run out into the hallway. Charger comes out, charges you, hits your teammates and knocks them back, spitter spits acid on the spot where you all land, hunter pounces the guy next to you and starts ripping open his stomach, then boomer spews bile on everyone and a horde of 30 common zombies is suddenly attacking you all while the boomer bile blurs your screen so you can't see shit. And you die in less than a minute. Tank and witch didn't even spawn.

 

It's not a very forgiving game, especially in multiplayer.

It should be noted that KF2 introduced a new player vs player mode in which one team is human and the other controls more powerful versions of the monsters. However, all of the action takes place in the existing wave-based levels. It's very much L4D-lite. I don't think it is played much though.

versus is the only way to play L4D, the co-op version is boooooooooring

 

also the modded servers with huge player counts are a good goof, as are the xp/leveling up servers. it's so janky and broken, I love it

The custom servers are crazy. L4D2 versus is already punishing to new players, but when you give people a point reward system like KF and let them BUY tank and witch spawns in a campaign like Hard Rain? Insanity.

Free DRM-Free Pony Island is kind of nice.

 

But yeah, wow, bad.

Yeah, that bundle is pretty awful.

 

And LOL at Devil Daggers being in the BTA tier.  That game was in the $1 tier of an earlier bundle.

An unusually good Groupees bundle right there.

Yeesh.  They even brag at full price this bundle would cost $45!

 

Wouldn't mind the Oh Sirs, but this is going to have to get down near $2.

The adventure games look like they're worth tossing Humble $1, but that's about it.

You can have the one from the $1 tier if you like; I'm not going to be using it.

I've completed Pony Island and played several rounds of Oh Sir....I think for a buck, they are both worth a look.  

 

Pony Island outstays it's welcome with ultimately tedious gameplay.  Although the storyline is intriguing...not intriguing enough to get me to playthrough multiple times in order to piece together shit.

 

Oh sir, reminds me of a Monty Python skit.  I love insulting people and now there is a game made out of it...coolio!

"Oh sir..." is best played in small amounts but is entertaining....

 

BTA tier is pretty poopy though.....

Think the only game I own out of that is Town of Salem.  Still not sold on buying it for over $3 though

This might be the first time I have ever seen a Humble Bundle BTA below $3...

Used to happen quite frequently but lately it has been extremely rare.

 

A sign of the quality of this bundle.

This bundle is legitimately half IG/Groupees quality, half Humble quality. The Space Pilgrim and hack_me games have been IG'd before. Who's Your Daddy has been Groupee'd before. The rest are good games but mostly repeats.

What the hell is this, Humble?

Trying to make your Monthly look good, eh?

 

God, those last 2 bundles - GameMaker + MicroJumble - have been awful.

2017 versions of the Telltale, Saints Row (Deep Silver), and Capcom Bundles were at the very least good, though.

Fixed.
