Haha I was actually pleasantly surprised with the unlocks. Funny that I feel so much differently about it than everyone else.

 

Planet Alpha wasn't even on my radar, but it looks beautiful. Check it out if you like platformers and haven't seen it before. Avernum 3 is a little old school, but I wanted it. I'm a Sonic fan, so I wasn't real salty about that early reveal.

 

Maybe not as good as the next month looks, but I did manage to pick up 3 games I'll actually play for $9.00

Yeah at first glance i wasn't thrilled with the unlocks but at second glance i somehow skipped over avernum (the series is supposed to be really good crpgs, so i'll take it), and after looking more into the games in the bundle planet alpha looks like it could be a decent enough platformer and it is really good looking. And spiral scouts is a puzzle game that has really good user reviews on metacritic, and an 85 and 78 from critics (only two critic reviews), so i decided to keep that as well. Already had Sonic Mania from ps plus so i just sold it along with battletech.

Very upset that I paid full price for Crash and Spyro on PC and PS4 and Spyro on Switch. You're welcome.

I bought Yakuza 0 during a Steam sale, then it was a Humble Monthly headliner a month later. I'm hoping for Kiwami 2 to be a headliner in the future, to even the score. 

 

As for these headliners, they are definitely strong but I'm not sure how much they would appeal to me. I don't have nostalgia attached to these games. An interesting aspect is that if Activision is this persuadable, perhaps it's time for Square Enix to give one of their JRPG titles eg. Final Fantasy XV, as a headliner.

Glad I passed on a copy of Crash for $3.75 from a local Gamestop during their PC games clear out. This is a tremendous deal. Tremendous.

As awesome as this is, can I subscribe for one month...and then cancel?  Asking...for a friend.  Oh, wait.  I don't have any friends.

Yes. You can even cancel straight after subscribing if you don't care about the Humble Store discount. You don't have to wait until next month, and you still receive the rest of the bundle.

ATTENTION: We have run out of Steam keys for Override: Mech City Brawl. We are getting more ASAP. We will have Steam keys for you as soon as they are available again!

 

First time I've seen that happen in a monthly bundle.

Fanatical has its own Override: Mech City Brawl bundle that includes DLC for $4.99 if that interests anyone.

Yea, but those are my all time favorite series. So I guess they do deserve the premium I paid.

Mine said that when I looked at my purchase page yesterday, but when I clicked on Reveal Steam Key it was there. No idea why they'd leave it there if the problem was solved. Or maybe they've run out again, lol.

 

That's a Groupees move right there.

Is CoD WW2 even active on Steam? I guess it's worth a install at least for the campaign.
The CoD campaigns for the most part have been enjoyable.

 

Too bad they didn't give out BO3.

Well, you agree with me on this so maybe you are crazy.  Humble is best when it offers high-tier indie games but since IGN has taken over we're seeing more and more console games dominate the offerings.  I mean... they had Sonic last month as an early reveal and now they're offer even more old Sega platformers.

Then why wouldn't you just pirate every pc game as well? Heck, why ever buy anything if that's your argument?

Those who want to mod it up and get better performance out of the PSC.

Plus, it's been $20 in sales before; it's worth that, modded-up or not.

 

EDIT:

Some solid stuff and classics stuff in that line-up - i.e. Tekken 3, Resident Evil (original), FF7, MGS1.

Plus, the controllers are solid - even w/out the analogs.

I just subbed for the first time to get these games. If I cancel the account right now will I still get the rest of the games for November?

Yea you will get them, you might lose the humble store discount though, so if you're planning on buying other stuff it might be handy to keep around. Just make sure you cancel the thursday before the bundle unlocks, because that friday-ish you wont be able to cancel anymore and will be locked in to the next month

Also about the PS Classic...have you seen those old Spyro/Crash games lately? They still play OK, but yeah I think 60 FPS nice on your eyes PC versions are the way to go.

Correction *TWO* Thursdays, before the bundle unlocks. The bundle always unlocks the first Friday of the month, but you get charged one calendar week before that. So that's not the Thursday one day before, but eight days before.

oh right right, originally wrote that as the week before, then tried to get specific, forgot there was a thursday the day before the unlock :)

Yeah, I've enjoyed most of the COD SP campaigns. Bought it for that alone, even if the MP could possibly be dead.

Though, I did like the WW2 MP in its Free Weekends, when Steam had them here & there.

 

I already have BO3, backlogged.
