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.”

I think we are both throwing out opinions. I'm just saying that you're making it sound like this is some great value, when it's not. They should not be able to just re-bundle a game they've bundled before with a few pieces of DLC (not even all of it) and call that a headliner for the monthly. Not holding them to a higher standard is just going to make the monthly get worse and worse.

The lowest historic price I can find for the Platinum Edition of Civ VI is a little over $20. If you like Civ, even if you own the base game, this is still a decent deal at $12 or less. MSRP on the Platinum edition is $120, and while no one here would ever pay that, paying 1/10 of MSRP plus getting a selection of other games isn’t trash. And Stubbs may be 15 years old but it was delisted from Steam and unavailable/unplayable for many years. Those are basic facts, not opinions.

Let's set value aside and look at why it's just not a good Humble Monthly bundle:

 

1. I own the headliner. Automatic disqualification for "good status" -- indisputable.

2. Headliner is from 2016. For context: (other games released in 2016 include Titanfall 2, Overwatch, XCOM 2)

3. It's already been in a Humble Monthly (with two add-ons) ... over three years ago.

4. Two problematic multiplayer games

5. A visual novel (YMMV)

6. Some pixel graphics games

7. A GOG ONLY GAME (this probably deserves to be higher)

 

If you look at it as a Civ bundle, that means you're a Civ fan and you're excited to get more DLC for cheap, The other stuff is gravy on top.

 

As a Humble Monthly though? It's really disappointing. There are so many things not to like about it and only a few ok-looking games to make up for it. For $12... hell no. I passed on it for $8. But I'm not a huge Civ fan and I played it enough a few years ago.

I mean... for half the price of the Humble Choice you can get ten games from this https://www.fanatica...n-summer-bundle -- most of which are pretty solid and certainly on par with the filler in the Humble Choice outside of Civ 6.

And at least half those games are regular repeats for Fanatical. I know I've bought F1 and Hard West from them previously. Chroma Squad is regularly in bundles.

If you want a better example from Fanatical, it would be the Platinum Collection. Less of a deal then Humble Monthly in raw numbers, they at least let you select games. I can't always find 3 that I want, tho.

You gotta be like me and be more selective on those Fanatical pickings!

I'm very selective about which Fanatical bundles I buy. So far I've selected none of them.

Some other people and I got emails offering another Six-for-Six deal after canceling a week ago.  If you also canceled and previously had the plan, might be worth checking your emails.

Reactivated: $6 for Choice for 6 months

An exclusive offer just for you! Come back to Humble Choice and we'll reactivate your $6/month plan for the next 6 months.

Every month you'll get a set of brand new, handpicked games to add to your collection and keep forever.

I know you're joking but LSL - WDDD was a decent game I beat in one evening. I'm waiting to get it's sequel cheap in the future too. About 9 hours and I only had to look for hints I think twice. Not bad at all for cheap.

Good to know, honestly. Some of the earlier games were entertaining.

Man, Humble must be really excited about their 3D printed RPG accessories bundle, they emailed me about it four times. They only sent me two about their new coding bundle.

So Hamble’s giving Surviving Mars Deluxe Steam keys away till the 14th or they run out of keys. The keys expire on the 18th, so don’t sit on them.

That's a bad bundle and surprised they're still throwing Hurtworld around. Even if I didn't have 100% of it I would still think of passing on it heh.

The only thing I'd care about is Ghost Recon Wildlands, and it'd be cheaper in the Ubisoft sale.. so yeah I'll pass

I cancelled a couple months ago, and today I got the $9 a month for 3 months. I was tempted, but knowing there's a $6 for 6 deal going around I'll keep waiting.
