Another "surprise" timing bundle.  It is always nice to have another bundle and let us be honest - Extra Life (I do admit it would have been better with a better selection of titles).  It was interesting to me as during the last week or 2 I was wondering if some of the people I donated money to Extra Life during their game-a-thon were going to participate again this year.  Honestly, I am just too old/tired to try for a 24 hour jam (also do not get me started about there is no way my internet provider would have stable service for 24 hours straight.

It doesn't have to be online.  24 hour tabletop marathons have happened around here.

I see no one's excited about the mobile Halloween bundle here. I'm not surprised.

It's a collection of games most already have on Steam. but this time you can have them to play on your mobile device instead.  Whee!

It's hilarious because everything I want out of the damned bundle is the $15 tier.  Pisses me off a bit.  (I want the Pathfinder stuff in that tier; the lower tiers are all repeats of previous bundles)

New Jumbo 10 bundle.

 

In terms of quality, its ok just from that standpoint alone, but all but 2 games are repeats. Even the heavy tier (Wasteland 2) was a regular monthly title. $1 tier all 3 were monthlies.

 

They're not doing themselves any favors with all the monthly repeats in regular bundles. 5/7 games were monthlied. The highest tier was a regular Monthly unlock itself. Probably recycling keys.

I think I only own 1 game here (Grey Goo), but I'm honestly not that interested in many of them.  Is it worth throwing $1 at Epistory?

Humble has been really good about saving me money lately.

You can probably find it even cheaper by itself from trade places (here, Group Buys, etc), but you can do a lot worse for $1, you'd also be getting Oddworld which is great itself.

Is the Wasteland 2 "standard edition" presented here the same as the Classic Edition on Steam, or is it some other permutation?

I'm mainly just curious as to whether it would be worthwhile to get the Android version of Sanitarium or wait for GOG to drop the PC version to 85% off in 2020.

Classic includes a key for Wasteland 1 on Steam and this does not.

Not impressed with this, but I don't have the Oddworld game or Prototype 2 (or 1, for that matter), so I may BTA it.

If you do, I'll give you the split price for How to Survive 2 if you don't want it.

It's worth throwing $1 at Oddworld.  Excellent game that's certainly worth playing.  I just finished New and Tasty recently.  I've played through the original version a couple of times, too.

 

Epistory would just be a bonus.

It's been 80% off a few times. Close enough.

So $2 wallet credit for Humble Monthly subscribers who already own 4 of the 7 games because they were in previous Monthly Bundles.

Should be $2 for each game.

 

They could make these bundles worth it for monthly subscribers, a $2 bone isn't enough.

This bundle is pretty horrid for monthliers.  Part of me wants to unsub and just pick off stuff from regular bundles.

I don't think Prototype 2 has ever been Humble Bundled:

https://isthereanyde...ain=prototypeii

 

Only Bundle that I recall was when Tony had their Amazon Sale Show on GameSpot and Prototype 1+2 Bundle for Steam was $7.49, IIRC. I dunno what kind of magic he worked to get Activision games like that so cheap - but damn, he could pull off some awesome sales in the old days! Those 2 have never been that cheap again!

 

Hopefully, Prototype 1 is an unlock next week.

Tony needs to answer the call of duty and come back and kick Activision in the shins until they lower their prices.

Maybe, but I don't think you can call yourself a true CAG if you've never had this internal monologue:

 

Self: Hm. This game has been on sale for $2.49 before, so I could wait for that.

 

Self2: True, but if I get this alternate version in this bundle, it's less than $1. 

 

Self: You make a fair point, sir. Well-played.

That was back in the days when everyone was convinced that you could sell new(ish) $40-$60 games for $5-$10 and make it up in volume.

Yeah, but it's GOG. The other side of the argument is that it might be one of those games that oddly never even hits 75% off again.

Only author I'm familiar with is Glen Cook, but his best books aren't included (Black Company series.)

I wanted to cut back a little and Humble is making it easy when I have everything but H2S2 and haven't finish H2S1.   

 

No one tell me what the unlocks are.  I don't want to know.   :shame:
