Bejeweled 3 would be the single "big draw" in the lower tier. The other titles listed in that level are the older versions of each respective series. 

 

In the upper tier you have PvZ - probably their biggest grossing title (albeit one that they've all but given away) - and the newer versions.

Actually they did give it away (in Halloween baskets of all places) :-P

I may or may not have squirreled one of those away (sorry) for myself.  :evil:

I'd rather have the Steam version of PvZ, which wasn't given away.. but I'm not willing to pay $6 for it. Steam version AFAIK has no activation limits. The version that was given away does.

Too late!  But really, people were talking about weekly deals in the main thread and vice versa.  And everybody was talking about the Steam key changes.  I like one mega thread better.

Yea I can see it now. One thread makes sense.

 

I guess the Humble Mumble RSS feed will announce daily store deals, too.

It makes more sense than the other way around: PvZ is probably the most famous of the Popcap games, and Peggle Nights is the sequel to Peggle.

 

Hm. I guess it's just me, but I figured that everyone who wanted to play PvZ would have by now--it's been released damn near everywhere so I can't imagine it's still making PopCap a ton of money, but I'm sure I could be wrong.

 

If one of today's Humble WB Bundle bonuses does end up being Guardians of Middle-Earth you may be interested to know that there are a couple of Raptr rewards for DLC. One requires you to be http://raptr.com/dashboard/rewards/guardians-company-of-dwarves in the game and the other requires http://raptr.com/dashboard/rewards/guardians-warriors-bundle status so you won't be able to qualify immediately, but it might be incentive to put the game on the front of your list and maybe do some idling if you plan to play much of it and will use the DLC.

 

Well, I played a bit of it when it first showed up in the free PS+ list, but it's not that much fun, IMO. As much as I usually enjoy LoTR-themed games, I don't think MOBAs are my kind of thing. It reminded me of all of the reasons I didn't care for Company of Heroes--it was too much like actual trench warfare. I would spend a lot of time and resources trying to control an area only to lose it to the AI and then have to recapture that area--wash, rinse, repeat.

I've played it on PC, PS3, iOS, and partway through the borked Android version, and the inclusion in this bundle still has me excited since I can playthrough it again on Steam :bouncy:

 

I suppose I'm in the minority, but PopCap is certainly still taking my money...

Bookworm Deluxe is boring.

 

Bookworm Adventures is really good (probably my favorite Popcap game along with PvZ).

So since you've actually played some of these PopCap games, would you say the bundle (minimum tier) is worth a dollar?

It'd be worth it for Bejeweled or Peggle alone.

  • Bejweled 3: Definitely, if you like match 3 games (I do, played it a lot)
  • Escape Rosecliff Island: Boring hidden object "adventure", gave up not even half-way
  • Peggle Deluxe: Finished it out of sheer bloodymindedness but hated it - might as well be playing a slot machine
  • Feeding Frenzy 2: Shipwreck Showdown Deluxe: Cute arcade-style game but nothing special
  • BookWorm Deluxe: Decent word game but Adventures is much much better

So, for a dollah? Yes if you like the Bejeweled "genre", but otherwise it's a tossup.

 

Some people seem to actually like Peggle but they're obviously insane, so you gonna take their word or mine?

There is indefinitely more interaction with Peggle than with a traditional slot machine.

  • BookWorm Deluxe: Decent word game but Adventures is much much better I agree with this. The Adventures games have more of a story, but BookWorm is great fun if you like word games.

I liked Peggle and Peggle Nights quite a bit. I'd liken it more to Pachinko than a Slot Machine. 

 

FYI to anyone interested, there's a Peggle Deluxe Demo available on Steam.

I ended up doing the opposite and got Euro Truck Simulator 2 instead of Rogue Legacy. I'm torn on Legacy, as I already have FTL and Spelunky to finish. Wonder if I should wait for a Humble Bundle?

There's also Peggle Extreme, a slightly Valve-themed version with only a few levels.

You made the right choice.  ETS2 will give 100s of hours of gameplay.  Should hold you over until Rogue Legacy is bundled.

Peggle is awesome. I can see why somebody wouldn't like peggle...personally I loved it.

I hated it because it was so random - there was no way to judge where the ball would go after the first bounce or two.

Wait a minute. Is the game a MOBA?

With my backlog, it's not like I NEEDED something to hold me over :)

 

Sometimes I think my library has gotten so big, it makes it EASIER to buy more games. "What's one more?"

I absolutely love Peggle, and if I hadn't bought the Popcap pack from the Panda, I'd be all over this bundle just for Peggle alone.

Understandable. I find it really addicting, but could see why it would aggravate someone.

I'm so weak. I bought Rogue Legacy too.

 

To be fair, it's been high up on my wish list. :)
