I didn't penny many game bundles myself, but I did do pretty much any book bundle I had some semblance of interest in.

IIRC during the 2011 Steam holiday sale Hamble changed the minimum for keys from one cent to 25 cents, because people were buying bundles by the dozens to use on their alts to farm coal from the achievement hunts or something like that.

Yes.  And later the minimum moved to $1, first for keys, then for most everything.  They also added high tiers above the BTA for some bundles and, for book bundles, moved from BTA to fixed tiers.

 

While one could get mad at Humble for all of those changes, I think one has to be willfully obtuse to think the desires of the content providers didn't have almost everything to do with Humble's need to make changes.

Hey that's where 30 of my alts came from. Pennying in on games to unlock achievements with a hack to get coal to craft into more games, what a time to be alive.

Getting IOBit Uninstaller 8 PRO in the BTA will be very useful for uninstalling all the garbage in this bundle.

Here are some of the bundles that are running right now:

Legitimately great-looking bundle. Already have HLD and YL but everything else is something I'd probably enjoy.

Decent bundle, but I would hold out on it until the last day to see if they make it a "complete the set" bundle on steam like they did for the last Day of the Devs bundle.

I'm 99% certain that Steam didn't have a Complete-the-Set bundle for 2017, just 2016. I recall hoping that there would be one but it never showed up. Though I suppose if you plan on getting the entire bundle anyways it wouldn't hurt to wait until the last day just to be safe.

I'm 75% sure I don't know where it went.

 

2017 had Flinthook, Full Throttle, ABZU and some other stuff.

They'd have 8 concurrent bundles if they release that today, which is the same as Groupees. Johnny was right!

 

About half of them are repeats from Humble and Fanatical, though, so I'm gonna pass.

  • Dragon Head Vol 1-2 (awesome manga, sadly only two out of ten volumes)
  • Locke & Key Vol 1: Welcome to Lovecraft
  • Can You Just Die, My Darling? Vol 1-2

I haven't heard of quite a few of these authors, just the classics. Anyone have any opinions on them? The mangas included are good, but it's only the first two volumes of each when most are over 10 volumes long.

I play games so that I don't have to read.

And I backlog games so that I don't have to play.

I just sit in front of my computer with a frozen DiGiorno, winning.

If my calculations are correct, and the leaked Day of the Devs bundle runs through 11/2, and it's a two-week bundle, then the bundle will be launching today.

 

However, the 2017 bundle launched on a Tuesday while the 2016 bundle launched on a Saturday.

 

So, what I'm really trying to say is this post is pointless and I know nothing.

You're missing the $18 tier btw, with Parasyte vol. 1 & 2, plus others.

Make sure you guys buy the Random Stuff Get The Vote Out bundle. Plenty of good things that totally don't fit with the name.
