Unlocks are meh.  Reveals are even worse.  Will pause/cancel.

Yep, I'm refunding Yakuza but I think I'll stick with Division, just to have it on Steam as well plus it's the Gold Edition.

Eh, this was pretty disappointing. 
Observer was on Twitch Prime, Regions of Ruin was dirt cheap around Thanksgiving ($2.40 on steam, $1.80 on humble), Just Cause 3 was dirt cheap everywhere for a long time, and Sundered was 75% and all over the front page all winter sale long. 

It's probably silly of me, but it'd be a lot nicer if we were getting stuff that wasn't seeing 75% off sales on the regular, especially since Humble seems to want to continue to flout the Monthly as it's marquee offering. 

But hey, another month  and they're still not Groupees level disappointing, so that's something, right?

I actually have a jewel case copy of NOLF2 I bought at either a thrift store or Half Price Books years ago. I should get around to installing that some time...


You can grab all of them for free with community patches at http://nolfrevival.tk. Those were some great games and you should give them a try.

Wasn't The Division free on UPlay or something? I seem to have it there and I've never played it. I'm pretty sure I've never purchased anything at that store.

 

So, yuck for The Division.

 

As for January -- eh, there have been worse. I'm not completely unhappy, so that's a plus.

 

Yeah, there is a sequel to NOLF.  It's called No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way.  There's also a spinoff that takes place between both games called Contract J.A.C.K.

Yep, I have all of those -- NOLF 2 is the bomb -- I was really referring to the series needing a new entry. What a shame.

It was either a dollar or 1 cent on newegg during a price glitch. It came out in 2016 and The Division 2 comes out soon. Pretty weak headliner. Yakuza 0 is decent though

This is amazing thank you so much!  Now I don't need to dig out my discs and try to apply patches manually.  one stop shop.  wow

Yeah, I bought in to Division for the $1 Newegg glitch. Have really enjoyed having it in my backlog so far.

Tried to sell off Division but I'm fairly lazy.  Basically it's: do I want to do the front-work and try to unload the reveals for like $8 and pay $4 for a grab bag or do I just want to wait and see if the unlocks are even worth it and maybe buy them then for like $2.

honestly it just depends on how flexible your tastes in games are and if you're willing to deal with the cesspool

 

for me though it's typically worth it to buy regardless. this wasn't a great bundle for what i would want but i sold jc3/project cars/sundered/qube for a total of 12 dollars. i have the year subscription so i got paid a dollar to keep wizard of legend/observer/darkside detective

We always talk about how many hours a game's been played, but...how many hours has it been backlogged?

If I were more proactive as far as cesspooling the $40 discount on the yearly sub would probably be worth it.  As it stands, though, it is kind of rare that I am interested in more than one or two unlocks when I don't end up buying for the early reveals.  And from what I've seen in the cesspool the unlock games usually don't sell for more than $1-2 each.

 

Am also sort of on the fence with Yakuza 0 but that's mostly because of Denuvo which, sadly, seems to be proliferating nearly every other AAA release these days.

On the one hand, Denuvo sucks. On the other hand, Yakuza 0 is good. Like, really good. This is maybe the first open world/area game I've played in a long time where the side stuff is actually fun and not just boring filler. Not to mention the story is legitimately intriguing and entertaining. Kiwami just shot up to a Day 1 purchase.

Isn't it sort of Sleeping Dogs 0.5?

Well, leaving aside that Yakuza is Japanese and Sleeping Dogs is Chinese. . . not really. Sleeping Dogs feels like a really well-done version of any of the last three GTA games in an authentic Hong Kong setting (well, it seems authentic to me). Yakuza 0 is like an old console idea of what a modern open-world game would look like. At this point, you're asking, "well, how is that different from what I said?" I can't put my finger on it, other than to say I'd play that game in a heartbeat (Sleeping Dogs 0.5), but Yakuza, despite it being rather insistent on its own fundamental coolness, is just not that easy to get into. At times, it's downright boring.

Yakuza is slow and you have to have a knack for beat em ups and sometimes silly side missions. Even in Yakuza 0 it feels old school still. I love it, but it's clunky as heck at times.

Yakuza 0 feels much more like a modern-day Shenmue than a Sleeping Dogs or GTA-style game. It's not exactly open-world, but you still generally have freedom to run around a smaller district that's filled to the brim with sub-stories and side activities. 13 hours into the game and I've barely touched the main story. Not that it hasn't captivated me, but I just getting side-tracked along the way, whether it be arcade games, bowling, pool, dancing, karaoke, gambling, pocket car racing, or the occasional eccentric side story.

Did buy Yakuza 0 prior to this Monthly announcement, so this is my first sacrifice since Metal Gear Solid V. Balances out nabbing Just Cause 3 XXL from a great trade last month. Is The Division the first Ubisoft game in a Humble Monthly since South Park: The Stick of Truth? Though that was a Steam key.

Wow, so apparently Humble is now selling Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS games on their store (United States only though).

Note that you do not get the 10% sub discount or 5% back; there does appear to be a $5 off coupon though. This is interesting though, wonder if they will be offering PSN games in the future (like some bundles were).

How is everyone selling their tom clancy division from the monthly???

it looks like you need to link the account and you can't gift it

 

https://support.humb...on-Instructions

 

so the buyer would need to give you their uplay account and seller link it for them??

Think about it.  You think anyone who's buying discounted Ubi games 3 years after release has anything of value in their account?  What are you going to do?  Steal their free copy of Anno?

For cameras that are 5-10 years old. I don't know who they're targeting.
