If you were on the $6/mo for 6 months plan and last month's bundle was your 6th bundle there's a chance you still have the coupon in your Humble account and it MAY work for this bundle (effectively making it the 7th month). 

 

My coupon was listed as expiring June 4th so I went to claim one of the games from this Monthly Choice and it took the $6 off for me so I got this month's bundle for $6 plus tax.  I imagine it worked since I unlocked and paid for the bundle right away while the coupon was still technically valid.

 

Just an FYI in case anyone was interested.

Well, now I'm sad I didn't try that before cancelling my subscription on that account.  At least I can still try to get the pause discount on my Classic account.

I like a good hustle as much as the next guy but I don't really want this stuff for six bucks either (but I already owned Civ 6 from Games Republic glitch way back when)

Fwiw, the Civ 6 from the glitch doesn't include the second expansion, Gathering Storm, which is included in the Platinum Edition.

Yeah, but I played Civ6 in the years since it launched and don't see me taking the time to go back.  Not saying it's a bad deal (for $6) but it's not for me since Civ6 is a "played and done" game in my mind.

Civ 6 and Stubbs are the only standouts for me. I've never even heard of the other games, aside from secret neighbor which is a dead MP game. I didn't get the Civ glitch years ago so this is barely worth it for me

Eh, its not horrible, mostly because I have the base version of Civ6. This is about what I would pay if drunk enough to get the two expansions and the few other dlc nations they have in the plat. edition. Not that I'm a big fan of Civ6, both it and 5 have been a step down from 4.

 

The other stuff is all games I might play briefly but wouldn't spend money on, so the perfect bundle fodder I guess. The Desolate survival horror game looks decent, that was actually in my wishlist.

 

Scratch that... this bundle is awesome. Milkyway Prince: The Vampire Star. A visual novel that I'm sure will captivate me... into Going Under  desolate disjunction enough to actually install effien ikenfell.

Pretty rough month. The $6 price was still active for me so I figure thats a decent enough price for the two Civ VI expansions, but really not interested in anything else. Very mediocre overall.

Hopefully they run another 6 for $6 promotion sometime, that price actually makes each month worth it.

I'm pretty excited about at least one of the games being DRM-free...so to speak.  8-[

Other than Civ 6 this is basically a Fanatical-tier bundle.

Most monthlies are worse than good Fanatical bundles.

Been waiting for Ikenfell and Stubbs and some others look good. Milky Way Prince is on my wishlist too I think. I sacrificed for both Civilization 6 and Going Under. Going Under is worth beating, but gets very repetitive making it a great bundle game. Not amazing otherwise.

Already have Civ VI so definitely a pass for me unless I can find someone who's looking just for that.

Fanatical bundles don't have games that are less than a year old.

I mean, Ikenfell was an indie darling for a while. Going Under is a game I've almost pulled the trigger on a few times. Admittedly the rest I either have little interest or don't know about, but in this day and age, it is a solid bundle. They even managed to not stiff us on DLC for the headliner.

I would take you up on that but I just noticed Platinum doesn't include all the DLC.  Five years down the line and they are still milking thins thing.  I'll wait for the Mega-Platinum or Diamond or Cubic Zirconium edition.

You're right, they have older games that are better than the less than a year old games.

I think you'll be waiting a long time.

Got offered $4 off for threatening to pause. Which is almost as good.

 

Personally I'm not going to redeem the GOG key for Disjunction in the hope they'll give an option for Steam at some point.

I forgot Civ VI was in a previous monthly and I sold it off. It was one of those times when the headliner was worth $12 to resellers so no point activating it back then since it didn't have most of the DLC

Wasn't Civ 6 (base) free on the Epic Store once?

 

Also, how are the DLC's included here for Civ 6? Do they improve Civ 6 base a lot?

It includes the two big expansions that add significant layers of depth to the game - Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm. While not brand new, they did come out in 2018 and 2019. I’ve watched both pretty closely and the lowest they’ve ever gone individually is $10 a piece. I’m not a huge Civ fan, but these two add-ons basically give you the full game. There’s a season pass that adds more civilizations, but those two expansions included in the Humble Bundle are the big game changers, adding weather, natural disasters, civilization eras (dark ages and golden ages), and stronger alliance mechanics between civilizations.

People who are complaining about this bundle’s value either don’t care about the franchise, got it through a glitch (without some of the newer dlc), or don’t realize that Platinum alone is still like a $40 value on sale. Totally worth it if you like the game.

Yeah Civilization 6 is a good bundle game. It's just pretty old by now and I kind of played it a decent amount around the 2 years after it came out. It's good, but just yeah a bit long in the tooth and the DLC thing is always a bit weird. I've been collecting Civ 6 DLC over the years, so this is good for sure. Overall I like the games in this bundle though I'm not too crazy about the multiplayer ones (Neighbor one, Worm's Rumble and Desolate). They all look okay to likely not going to play.

Oh come on. Remember the Humble Monthly? There used to be like 3 headliner games per bundle. Now there's basically 1 headliner (which has been given away for free and in previous bundles) and some DLC. This is crap. Especially when you combine it with dead multiplayer games and some other pixel bundle trash.

Except it is the same 5 games recycled into various bundles. I often see the same games over and over again in their bundles.

Say what you want, but there hasn’t been a way to get those 2 dlcs for under $20. If you don’t like the game, that’s on you, but that doesn’t make the bundle trash. There have been plenty of other trash Humble Choice bundles, and there are some trash games in this one like anything Hello Neighbor. But between that Civ dlc and the Stubbs Remaster that just came out, this bundle, while not the best, is far from being “trash.”

You're bragging about a 15 year old game and some DLC for a 5 year old game that's been in a previous monthly and given away for free. That's trash. They should have had a separate Civ 6 bundle with different tiers for the DLC instead of putting it in yet another monthly bundle.

True, that's an insult to Fanatical bundles..  I've bought quite a few of them recently.

I’m providing facts … you’re throwing out opinions. Show me where the two major expansion DLCs that each retailed for $40 have been bundled with the core game at this price and I’ll stop “bragging.”
