Focus Home Interactive is the equivalent of the  “Coming soon to a home theater near you” VHS releases of the 80s and 90s ... yeah, it’s playable but you’re never going to see their stuff getting the red carpet treatment.

I dunno...

Certainly no slouch of a release and if they keeping making games like this, they'll be nearly top tiered.

Played that in PC Game Pass.

 

Yeah, Plague's Tale is really good.

 

EDIT:

Also, back in the day from Focus, this game was also certainly not a slouch:

It was really good and then some, actually.

Mediocre at best.  Headlining with Focus Home Interactive titles is not impressive.  Yeah Wargroove is neat but that will inevitably be bundled again.  As will the rest of this stuff.  Hell, American Fugitive is currently in a $4 Fanatical bundle.

not mind blowing but in terms of whether im happy to spend 12 bucks on it or not the answer is yeah i am which is really all i worry about with these

yeah thats when i got it. i thought it would probably be bundled relatively soon so made an effort to play it, finished it a few weeks ago

Good call on finishing it up. I still need to work on the final area and all.

 

How was the final chapter and end-stuff? How was your ending/outcome?

Best Humble Monthly ever. If you disagree you will be banned.

 

I disagree on the grounds that it's not even a Humble Monthly, it's a Humble Choice.

Bah, this is what I get for checking here first. Bummed out. If I'd checked humble first I'd have just been happy. Genesis Alpha One... 1.5 years wait and its in a humble monthly choice.. deal..of the month.

 

Epic exclusive failure. Oh, and Vampyr looks nice I guess. Nothing uber great but whatever.

 

Vikings Wolves of Midgard was the extra special bonus game for July btw.

Automachef is pretty fun too. You automate fast food restaurants. Later on, you can actually do some programming...which I stopped at because it started feeling like work.

Was going to reply and say something like this but you hit the nail on the head.  In relation to what people consider "AAA" titles, FHI pumps out B-list titles.  And while I'm not saying AAA games are always superior, one would have thought a 'benefit' to IGN taking over Humble was more AAA titles headlining monthlies.  Instead we get stuff that you would expect from Fanatical, just at a markup because Humble still styles itself as the 'better' bundle.

I've sort of been 'forcing' myself to play games that have sat on my Steam list for years to derive value/justify my purchase of them (albeit most of these fall in the category of bundle fodder and probably were not more than $1 each, if that).  A couple I've enjoyed, but most I have shrugged off after an hour or so of play not meriting any further other than the sake of saying I completed it -- and I simply don't bother.  The games in this bundle look 'okay,' but aren't stuff that I would play immediately and would most likely fall by the wayside as time goes by.  The value of game bundles is unmistakable.  But that value isn't realized if you never install and finish (or put a decent amount of playtime) into the games.

 

In theory, I'd get a good deal.  In practice, I would have just wasted $12.

Oh for sure this makes sense. When i buy the bundles i tend to only actually keep like 1-3 of the games and sell the rest, which usually means i spend like 2-3 bucks a bundle and wind up playing at least half the games i get so it works for me pretty great. But yeah if you're spending 12 bucks and playing just a handful of the games you buy not so much for sure, but then again most people in this forum tend to have hundreds of games they dont play anyway

Humble is giving away F1 2018.

 

Comparing it to my copy of F1 2015, there appear to be two extra playable characters.

 

They seem to have worked fixing the issue with F1 2015 where the cars are tilted too far to the right, but overcompensated a little as they appear slightly tilted to the left . Also, it is no longer available on Steam, just on Windows.

 

Also, it no longer comes with a free comb.

Well, I think the other thing for many is - well, the price of buying the game you really want by itself (and/or version from the service you prefer, such as Steam for many) can be a little less, close to or equal, or a littler higher in the Bundle.

 

In which, if there's other stuff you want and do actual play in the HBC (or any other bundle, for that matter) - yeah, it'll be more worth your while to buy the bundle.

 

Only other time you might really do good is: say you activate a game you don't care about...but then it gets pulled from Steam (and any other service). I dunno 'bout you, but...it's always cool owning stuff that you can no longer buy and is no longer for sale anymore anywhere; especially stuff w/ licensed-stuff (licensed music, licensed cars, licensed characters, licensed IP's, etc etc).

 

I've been looking at Call of Chtulu (Cyanide) and Coma 2 - so, for those two alone, probably worth just grabbing the bundle, no matter what I do w/ any of the other keys (activate them, giveaway, or whatever).

 

Pretty much, for those two alone (Call of Chtulu which I can never spell right and Coma 2), it's tipping me to BUY.

Right.  I'm 'guilty' of that but to a lesser degree.  Trying to avoid it going forward.  Being picky and cheap go hand-in-hand!

I somehow own both of these, already. Probably unplayed, I'd guess.

Maybe...they were bundled?

Ah, now that's more like it. A monthly where I actually wanted a couple of the games, find a couple more interesting, AND don't have to make any choices! :D
 
The $4 off coupon from skipping last month doesn't hurt, either.

When I tried to pause last month - well, I didn't get a $4 offer.

 

If I got a $4 offer last month, I probably would've (barely) jumped on that bundle. I wasn't super thrilled w/ last month's bundle and also wasn't thrilled w/ the news on them offering bans on giveaways/trades and whatnot.

 

This month - oh, I'm definitely in though, $4 coupon offered or not.

Played it, didn’t really hold my attention. It’s a good game, but not AAA imo. They’ve gotten better but their games always have a fair bit of jank that keeps them from being top tier. Granted I would say that things like Senua’s Sacrifice, Braid, and Journey were all overrated and boring as well, so maybe it’s just personal tastes.

the increased crappiness of the steam sales (in addition to just having bought a lot of the stuff that's always cheap anyway) has definitely reduced my spending habits. now i just tend to get the monthly choice bundles and each sale buy llke 1-2 games i'll want to play soon

Vikings does look more interesting than last month's extra game, Boundless. Already noticing it starting to flood Barter.

Looked at this month's list of games and though to myself that it's not half bad. And then I thought about what that really means and I went ahead and finally ended my subscription for good.

KF2 has taken a nosedive since their integration with Epic.  Community is also kind of hit and miss.  Some people have actually gone back to KF1.

Rising Storm 2 is likely a future Epic freebie, based on Killing Floor 2 being given away.
