If you have Raptr installed, check your computer. I installed it as part of the new AMD video drivers, but I uninstalled it yesterday after cleaning up the system... and today I found out that it downloaded and installed another program called Plays.TV without asking me if I wanted it. It started up today when Windows booted up, it wasn't installed yesterday.

 

Reddit says the client is installed if you use the express option when installing new drivers, but it hadn't started up at all until this morning. So what the crap, AMD? This isn't Windows 10, shoo.

This has been going on for awhile now... Just another sign that Raptr's best days are behind them.

I just spent way too much time looking at that Amplitude Pack. I've decided that I don't want an extra copy of Endless Space Emperor Edition and it doesn't include the Endless Legend Shifters DLC anyway, so... no. :shame:

I sent a trouble ticket in. I know I probably won't hear back before the sale is done though.

Per the Endless Space discussion thingie on Steam, they're aware and working on it.  Says that the sale is through the 14th so I assume they'll get it fixed before that.  Or not.

I recently updated my AMD Raptr app and it explicitly asked if you wanted Playstv installed.  But it does it in a sneaky way so you probably just missed it.

I kind of hate the Humble monthly lately. Besides being a more expensive option because no tiers, the Poopees surprise shit keeps messing me up.

I skip them because I already have the flagship game like Ark or South Park or Mad Max but then the have other shit in them I want when revealed.

Of course, I can't buy it at that point. Then the foreigners steal all the copies from Tremor for way too many coins in the middle of the night and I don't have the time or patience to do all the Spoder wheeling and dealing shenanigans.

So I just end up without those games waiting for them to get rebundled again I guess. I'm sorry I'm just not willing to blind order something for $12 when I already have the highlight of the bundle.

can we start the "whi u no git hmbl mnthli? now

Are people seeing an amazing price for all the endless legend stuff? I saw 66% off and that's decent but not something i'd go crazy for. The Endless Space stuff is well priced though.

There's some further bundle discounts on top of the 66% if you already own some/most of it that may make it worth it, but the problem is it's messed up and once you get it in the cart it's not counting the base Endless Space correctly.

I won a copy of RBI Baseball 16 last night (via a post in the contests section on CAG ironically) and oh boy does it suck. I knew it was an arcade game like the old school series of the same name, but ffs despite its general shallowness, the controls suck, there is barely any roster management possible and its just blah.

Ended up picking up the Amplitude pack since I didn't own Endless Space or Dungeon of the Endless and wanted them both. Glad they didn't have the latest Endless Legend DLC in it since that at 25% off would have been a bummer in the bundle.

so far i've only bought if i want the revealed game, but i might start buying regardless and selling the dupes. this past bundle i didn't buy because i had south park, but if i would've bought and sold it in the cesspool for 4 or 5 bucks the rest of the games wouldve been worth the price

That's probably what I would do. I can try to justify it that I can sell the dups but if I stop bullshitting myself I know I probably won't.

 
I think you guys are doing this the hard or at least the fakeybro way because people always buy/subscribe blindly even when they have the flagship game(s). I have yet to see any of these bundles where the big draw isn't something that either had a glitch or an at-least-75% sale, so many people who want it already had it. Most of the bundles have been fairly mediocre when taken as a whole unless you're one of those people who says, "Hey, I'll spend $12 on Mad Max and get a couple of other things as a bonus" (and if you are, well, there's probably no hope for you). They've had 2-3 games that are really worthwhile at most, and you can definitely troll the cesspit on reveal day and find people selling off extras for $1-3 each. Also, people will often drop monthly extras as freebies in the BGCQ group.
 
For reference, this page lists all of the previous monthlies. I took a peek again just to confirm that I wasn't simply being smarmy and cheap. I'm not--they really do average around 3 decent games per bundle.

The cesspool is nice if you don't want the flagship games (those tend to go for $6-7) and only want a couple games from the bundle, but if you want all of the non-flagship stuff it's still better to buy the bundles with a coupon and sell off the flagship games. I get people are lazy, but it's not all that difficult. I owned Wasteland 2, South Park, Nuclear Throne, and Mad Max.. sold them off for $5/$4/$4/$6 each. That combined with coupons made the remaining games cheaper than you can trade for them.

It comes out to 75% off the stuff (at least Dungeon of the Endless went from $12 base to $3 in bundle with the extra 25% bundle discount) which isn't amazing glitch pricing but is a solid discount if you're interested in the stuff. Of course, that only holds if the bundle actually works. Which it does not.

I 'love' 'free' games.  

 

Used to LAN twice a month,  now its lucky if its once a year.  Gamed with some of these people over 20 years.  So long we game with their kids. 
 

If it makes the bros feel any better, unless its on decent sale im still not going to buy it.  Are you cheap shaming me?  you of the used hard drives, small monitors, cheap keyboards and goodwill cases?

I'd rather pay ~$4ish more for the convenience of getting them in one bundle than to have to wade through the trade thread or BGCQ.

Yep, that's where I am.  Granted, of the Monthlies I missed, none of them made me full of regret.  I started with the Ark bundle and sold Ark off for $6 so for $6 I got the rest.  People were paying $20 to kickstart some game to get Wasteland 2, so to be able to get it for $6 and other games is a good deal. If you didn't have Ark, $12 for it alone would have been a deal, but all the other stuff is a lot of value.

 

This last one I still haven't sold off my extras (South Park and War is Mine) but once I do I'll be left paying less for some really well reviewed indie games.  Went ahead and moran'd the one with Mad Max because I know I can sell it off for $5 or $6 and be happy with the rest of the games at that price. 

 

It's not the deal that HIBs used to be and HIBs have suffered due to this, but it can still work out decently if you put in some effort.

Yep, it's not like we're going to see pre 2014ish style Humble Bundles again.  If the 'teaser' game is good enough, then the cost is reasonable.  Worst case scenario I paid $8 or so for Mad Max and $4 for four indie games (one or two of which I'm sure will be decent).  That and I'm not one of the +1 collectors who probably spend $200 a year on library entries they never play outside of card idling.
