I just tested positive for apathy towards this new bundle.

Oh no he COVIDn't!

If anyone grabs the bundle and doesn't want Into the Breach, I'll trade something for it as it's the only game I'm interested in. Cheers.

That was free on EGS last holiday, by the way. Great game.

32 games in my EGS library, all of which were freebies and apparently I missed Into the Breach. Oh well, I got my hopes up for a minute there. Still looking for Into the Breach if anyone has an extra copy to trade.

 

Cheers.

Oh man, Magicka.  I've been waiting for that game to be bundled forever.  Well now I'll jump on this bundle just for it.. and a bunch of digital books I'll never ever use.

Turok just got added to Twitch Prime for the month. Maybe good to know if you got the March Humble Choice and are thinking of using a pick on it.

 

I recommend downloading Lightmatter. If you can turn off the voice acting so you don't have to listen to the terribly written dialogue (mainly bad Portal references) it's a pretty compelling puzzle game for what it is, nice aesthetics.

I'm tempted to buy it with a different email and payment info to get the free month of choice also.

Never interested in humble choice nor plan on ever subscribing, but is there a tldr; to take advantage of this for some free games to keep?

It's just a free month of Humble Choice Premium. Not sure when it expires, but I'd assume for at least a few months you can look at the games on offer in Humble Choice each month and if you like them, you can redeem your free month and choose 9 games to keep forever, usually out of a selection of 12 games. Usually something good every few months. Retail is $20, I'd value it at at least $10 so it's definitely a great addition to this bundle.

Now that my 3 month Xbox PC Game Pass subscription has expired, Humble Choice feels like a lot better deal. Might go ahead and redeem Frostpunk from last month.

Hamble sent me a coupon to get a month of Choice for $6.

I read that it expires 5/1. Since that's the first Friday of the month, I guess you could maybe use it on the March, April, or May bundles. After you use it, you can probably instantly cancel your sub so you don't get charged in the future. Although, you could also keep your sub active until right before the next month's bundle is out so you can take advantage of the Humble store discount or access to the Trove.

I can confirm the coupon expires 5/1. I don't like the March selection, so I'm guessing I should wait until 4/3 and see what'a available. If I time it right, would I be able to collect 9 games for april and 9 games for May? 

 

No interest in Trove unless there are AAA games that can be beaten quickly (as you don't keep them I'm assuming).

 

Good point on the 20% discount on the store if I can find something...

Trove is DRM-free so theoretically, you could download all of them to keep forever. You just won't get updates if you're not subscribed.

So apparently the coupon expires at 1:00 PM ET on May 1st, meaning it won't be usable on the May Monthly. Just March or April.

Hamble hates me, they never send me anything but threats demanding my money.

Same here. I mean, just because I borrow someone else's Paypal account to make a purchase and they later find out and report it as fraudulent activity, doesn't mean they can't dispute the payment with that person because the keys are used! What if it really was me using false information to get games for free, huh Humble? Stop victimizing me!

 

(this is a joke/parody of entitlement culture)

So the coupon offer doesn't last until May 1st, but also the sub will expire May 1st? I thought it was 1 month free w/e you start.

 

That said, as a first time user, I guess I don't understand the redemption process. Do you get like a single redemption token or something? For example, if I enroll today, why can't I take the 9 games for March and 9 for April's selection? Or do  you get 9 redemption tokens a month and can mix match?

It's the latter: You pick the month, then you select 9 games from however many are offered (usually 12). They're yours to keep. No rollover, no spreading out over both months. If you redeem it today, you would only be able to choose from the currently offered games (Planet Coaster, F1 2019, etc.). If you redeem after Friday at 1 PM ET, you'll choose from a different selection of games.

This coupon also works for gift purchases. So that way you can use it for any future bundle.

Humble ran out of keys for the WRC 7 game that was included with the Just Drive bundle whose sale ended this morning.

Thanks for the tip. Went ahead and grabbed a gift link. Hopefully Choice gets a little better so I can actually use it.

Hitman 2 headlining April makes it a must-buy for me:

 

Hitman 2

Gris

This is the Police 2

Opus Magnum

Molek-Syntez

Raiden V: Director's Cut

Dirftland: The Magic Revival

Turok 2

Truberbrook

The Bard's Tale IV: Director's Cut

Shoppe Keep 2

Capitalism 2

I don't have any interest in Hitman 2, so this is an easy pass.  Truberbrook looks interesting, but the only other game I have interest in is Gris and that one's on Gamepass.

A lot of these games aren't necessarily my cup of tea, but Hitman 2, Gris, Bards Tale 4, and Turok 2 isn't a bad 4 games at all. Hitman 2 is a good headliner but I haven't even touched Hitman 1 yet lol

Yeah, Hitman 2 is really it for me. Gris is fairly good but I played it on Game Pass a month or two ago. Don't think I'd care for Turok 2 much since I quickly got tired of the original. None of the others do much for me, unfortunately. But Hitman 2, for me at least, is the most exciting headliner in a while. Only the standard edition but that's good enough for now.

 

Also, I see people on Reddit saying you'll receive a bonus game on May 1st if you subscribe. Everyone gets the game bonus game which isn't one of the 12 already revealed and doesn't count as a selection for the month. Can't find exactly where it's mentioned on the website, though.

I swooped Hitman 2 during the Steam Winter sale otherwise I'd for sure be unpausing my sub this month. Sadly, another pause for me. Although that bonus game seems interesting depending on what it is



#34379 elessar123

I have the only two games I want, so it's the easiest pass for me ever.

 

Edit: Actually, Driftland looks interesting, but eh. Maybe I'll visit the garbage dump.

Probably grabbing this for at least four of the games listed.
