They are switching to the first Tues of the month for Humble Choice games to drop. 

"We don't put game bundles out on Tuesdays anymore, so let's move our monthly bundles to Tuesday. It'll confuse the consumer and they'll forget to pause their subscriptions. What a genius idea!" - Humble, probably

Precisely. They aren't able to put together game bundles anymore. They had two non-monthly bundles in the past 6 to 7 weeks. They are trying to find ways to occupy the Tuesday game bundle slot.

Sweet bundle for $6. Even sweeter when you get a foil from one of the games that sells for $1.79.  :D/

Feels like each month is drip-feeding us w/ some Vampire/Werewolf content from the World of Darkness. I'm cool w/ that. Keep them coming.

 

I know it's way too soon, but I'd like to see WereWolf: The Apoc - Earthblood in here down the line.

 

 

EDIT:

I wish some stuff like Greedfall & The Council would show up in here.

Don't you think Earthblood looks . . . a bit crap? The trailer was utterly devoid of content that actually described anything going on in the game itself. I'm always suspicious of any non-teaser trailer that reveals no information about story or gameplay. Also, the $40 MSRP suggests the dev and/or pub already know it's not all that great.

It's Cyanide, so...I doubt it'll be AAA sparkling production-city here.

 

It could be more like B-Studio game like a Piranha Bytes RPG in this era; Reality Pump Game (i.e. Two Worlds); or something from Spiders (i.e. Mars: War Logs) - there might not be something different, interesting, cool and/or special/unique about it...but it's still lacking a bunch of something to take it to the next level.

 

Likely, that'll probably be these short-comings - the game's a bit repetitive or shallow in some way; voice-acting is "meh"; and/or stilted writing and/or dialogue.

 

Also, see this:

There's a Train Simulator Bundle

 

Anyways, I'm looking at the newest comics bundle (Humanoids) and they're doing something interesting.  The highest tier is all repeats, which I know because they explicitly state it when you get to that tier.

There's a new Moebius and More Presented by Humanoids comics bundle.  It's available for the next 20 days.

 

https://www.humblebu...oids_bookbundle

 

My favorite addition is where they mention if the books previously appeared in another comics bundle.  They probably got refund requests.

 

This disclaimer appears right above the $25 tier:

 

PLEASE NOTE THE BOOKS IN THIS TIER WERE INCLUDED IN THE LAST HUMANOIDS BUNDLE IN 2020.

Hm. Interesting. Yep, sounds like a mid-year 50%-off purchase, perhaps.

Wait a second--how many of you are there?!

Apropos of nothing, I'm probably going back to racing games. Nothing seems to be grabbing my interest lately. I fired up ESO the other day and wandered around with no quests to complete for 20 minutes. I played briefly and uninstalled Control, Dead Rising, Nier: Automata, Greedfall, Yakuza 3 Remastered, and Mafia. I'm sort-of playing Maneater on PS4, but it's long stretches of eating small fishes and avoiding alligators, which is also a bit boring. Is Injustice 3 coming out soon? Or something from Wales Interactive that isn't a horror game?

Rather than buying more games that I didn't need, I finally downloaded a bunch of those comics from the comics bundles that I've been buying on Humble for the past couple of years.  It also gave me a reason to break out an old Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 that I own.  

 

And it's amazing how much money a person can waste on comic bundles while trying not to miss a good deal, but the Archie, Dynamite Comics, Hasbro, IDW, and Image stuff was worth reading on a snow day.  I'm still hoping DC or Marvel will do a bundle someday.  :pray:

Both of them have a subscription option that gives access to decades worth of content. So I just don't see them doing it.

While mentioning those, don't forget that Viz offers something similar for Shonen Jump for $1.99 a month.

Also worth noting:

  • Anarcute was in the Itch.Io Racial Justice Bundle.
  • Sundered was also free on Epic before.

FYI, Marvel regularly hits a sale for their unlimited.  That's when I grab mine.  New comics are about ~6 months behind.

Was looking at the $1 tier and thought NeuroVoider looked cool.  Then I realized I've had it on Steam for about two years...

Apparently, Humble ran out of Steam keys for the Chroma Squad game in the Humble Plug In (and Play!) Digital Bundle.

 

I guess this is where they plug us.  :booty:

I did the same thing with Anarcute but then realized I had it both from Twitch Prime and the itch.io bundle.

It was? There were so many games in there, I didn't notice. I had gotten my copy in a Groupees bundle and it was a pleasant surprise.

That Racial Justice bundle was hard to handle for sure. I have played quite a few, but even then I don't have any idea of some really good ones are in there I'm missing. I'm likely to play Wide Ocean Big Jacket next, but yeah it's a nightmare to figure out what's in that bundle.

Actually seems like a pretty good list to me.  Here is to hoping Control activates as the ultimate edition on steam since there isn't a listing for just the base game as far as I can tell.  Elex and Peaky Blinders are both wants plus Wildfire doesn't look half bad.  Makes me wish I didn't buy Chimera Squad for $10 on release and still haven't touched it (or Xcom2 for that matter).  For $6 this humble choice is definitely a win in my book.

Could be an EGS key. No one knows for certain yet.
