Crap, already got ME: LE from the Amazon $10 glitch. Still no regrets, though - it's awesome.

 

Still worth it, though - since I'm missing Man of Medan and Desperados 3.

 

EDIT - Wow, is there only 8 games this month? 3 stellar headliners though.

I'll go to the trade post to snipe out the lower tier titles I want, since I have Desperados 3 and ME:LE, as well.  Great deal for those without those headlines.

So theyre actually trying this month? Never expected Mass Effect trilogy to be bundled so got in on that trilogy glitch as well unfortunately. Desperados (and Man of Medan) will be nice at least. Hopefully the dlc won't be pricey.

Sometimes I wonder how this works. Does Humble ask publishers, dev's, or whatever? Do the publishers come to them?

 

Sometimes, I wonder if it's on the publishers and they're just like "Nope. Not at all." or "Nope, not yet; call back in a few months, once our $50-70 MSRP dales go dead."

I know everyone is even more psyched about getting a last gen version of Madden on Origin via prime.

Mass Effect Trilogy appears to be Origin. Maybe not so bad I got the Steam key now. And wait, somehow already had man of Medan. Guess Desperados is the main draw for me then.

Yep, Origin for the ME Collection.  And that makes this one a hard pass.

Any huge differences b/t old-gen and new-gen Madden 22?

Have not tried a Madden game for maybe 15 years or so, just going by an article I looked up, but apparently better movement, AI, stadium atmosphere, and stat system.

Mass Effect Legendary is an Origin Key, for the record.

Of course it is, it's EA. They don't often give away Steam keys for their stuff.

Last time I can remember is a bundle that had both Steam and Origin keys of the original Mirror's Edge.

Fairly decent bundle. I was sad when desperados 3 left gamepass as I hadnt gotten around to playing it yet so thats a definite win. I did play through man of medan on gamepass though and enjoyed my time with it. ME:LE on origin is a bummer as I might as well do that through gamepass if no steam key is involved. This bundle is probably worth it for me for desperados alone, especially if I can recoup some of the cost from the cess pool.

I'm thinking of pausing since I have Mass Effect already. Only interested in Police Stories (barely), Man of Medan (barely) and Desperados 3 (nice). Not sure that's worth $12 unless I can load off Mass Effect for something.

Easy skip with ME:L not being a Steam key, they need to get real. And separate the bundles by store front completely.

The Humble Origin bundle?  It actually had Steam keys and Origin keys for most of the games (Mirror's Edge, Dead Space, Crysis 2, Burnout Paradise, Medal of Honor and Red Alert 3 - Uprising).  Only ones that were strictly Origin keys were Dead Space 3 and The Sims 3 I think.

Not as much as Surviving Mars on Epic! Oh wait, that was free on Epic like twice in two years. And in multiple bundles on humble.

 

 

Also, doesnt the Steam version of ME:L require origin to be installed?

ME:Legendary requires Origin launcher even if purchased on Steam (believe me was I disappointed to discover that). So there is no escape from them if you wanna play on PC. I broke down and made an account as I don't know when I'll be getting a PS5.

Expect more of that these days with games requiring their own client's launcher (i.e. Rockstar games like GTA5, RDR2, LA Noire, and even some older games got retro-fitted with always need Rockstar Launcher; Ubi games need UPLAY like Might & Magic 10; EA games after BF3 need Origin; etc etc) - as most games these days are built from the ground-up w/ their own services in mind & also utilizing those (lack of) features, servers, and/or DRM.

 

They're trying to make sure they get you only into their own storefront & client-app, hoping you'll buy the version w/ only their DRM/client-app crap.

 

Also, Ubi likes to make Steam-versions pricier in sales on Steam store, as they probably don't like giving Steam 30% also.

 

Most dev's and pub's likely are just going to take their OG version w/ its OG-required service there and not re-work it totally to be Steam-only, just dumping it as it was w/ OG service there onto Steam...so they are not spending tons of $, man-power, resources on spitting out a Steam-version. 

 

It's always all about $.

 

EDIT:

Of course. Almost every EA game since BF3 requires Origin and was made from the ground-up w/ it in mind.

See above.

I already have Gears 5 on W10 Store / Xbox PC Store, from when G5 and Gears Tactics were $5 each digital sale from Best Buy.

 

IIRC, I think Celeste a freebie before on Epic?

 

Recently got my hands on Cloudpunk + CoG expansion on GOG, in giveaway over on GOG. Cloudpunk's cool.

 

Man, they had to put Scarlet and Severed in the Top $20 Tier. Hmmm....

 

EDIT:

More on Cloudpunk, so far - it's like an open-world, space-vehicle-driving game where you drive flying cars. You're basically an Uber-driver in a Cyberpunk-y type of future in the Clouds. You meet people, make deliveries (often not knowing what's in the package you are to deliver) and make important (morality) decisions based on info you know - world's corrupt as heck in there; total dystopia. You say might have to decide to deliver a package or not; one was ticking for example and...I didn't deliver it; and the company and the person I did the job for wasn't happy with me - and I did NOT get paid for the job. Love the atmosphere, the world, world-building, and that stuff. Dialogue, voice-acting, and story stuff can be hit and miss - but some of the details to missions are bizarre, weird, and out there...which can be cool. I have not seen any say missions w/ combat in cars or say combat when you're on-foot. And yes, you can seamlessly drive around in your flying car, land in a parking garage, go on foot, explore the world, find stuff to do, characters to interact with, and whatnot. Open-world adventure game as an Uber-driver in Jetsons-like flying-cars in this horrible cyberpunk-y type of dystopia  - and it's just all kinds of cool. Something about this game, for sure - hope it doesn't get too repetitive...but so far, I'm digging it.

Now why couldn't some of those games such as Scarlet Nexus have been in the Humble Choice? Also had Gears 5, think I bought it for $10 or so on Steam. Not sure I should pay $20 for it since Scarlet Nexus and Cloudpunk both have dlc.

Want Cloudpunk (with expansion not here obviously) and Severed Steel, but yeah this bundle sucks. For $12 I would have maybe bit, but $20 is pushing it.

Pass for me since I already own all these besides Severed Steel and Cloudpunk. Still a pretty good bundle though if you somehow don't own any of these

Anyone played Scarlet Nexus have any thoughts on the Base-Game? The Season Pass?

Are any of the DLC's worthwhile?

Miss the Mass Effect Amazon glitch, so I might keep this one, even if it's epic. I haven't heard of many of the other games, but my husband likes Westerns so Desperadoes might be good for him.

I played the demo. The combat had some good ideas, but the devs didn’t know what to do with them and it mostly went to waste. Won’t comment on the story since it was just a demo, but the gameplay was average, maybe slightly below, for a character action game like this. Not really worth it IMO.
