Ooh this sounds like fun, hopefully none of the codes are FF13 this year because I bought it on sale and it was a real stinker and I gave up a half hour into it.

Yeahhhh, the only thing holding me back is that most Squenix games I want, I have on at least one platform.

 

But there are a few I don't, and... you know... $10...

I think I'll bite. If they were to include FFX-X2 remastered that would be great

I just bought realm reborn so hopefully they won't include it this year.

I'm going to wait a week to decide if the pack is worth buying or not

I got it simply because the price to point ratio is good. 5 reward points for $10 without shipping.

 

This gives me enough to get the license plate frame.

 

Hopefully the games are good.

Maybe they will give out Heavensward in prep for Stormblood.

 

Unfortunately for me, the risk of me getting duplicates from this bundle is way too high for me to buy in.

Any chances of this including Hitman? lol

​I'd say there is a possibility since it was 16$ on the GS web for BF.

Maybe the first episode? That wouldn't be all that surprising, the entire season would be though.

The last time I did it, the only game I didn't own or play was FF8. Sqeenix gives away so many of their games, it is hard to make sure it is worth it.

Are they steam keys or DRM free?

Steam, typically.

 

Also, no way they'll include the whole Hitman season. I'm pretty sure the one on GS' website wasn't supposed to be $16, but regardless. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the first episode, though.

But the mystery box could be anything! It could even be a boat!

This is the first year I've actually jumped on this, so everyone needs to prepare themselves for disappointment. I have none of Square-Enix's games on PC other than Tomb Raider and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, so I'm hoping I'm safe against receiving something I already have. At worst, though, some random CAGs are getting a few free games next week.

I decided to take a chance on the hope that Lightning Returns is in the bundle. The previous two bundles had XIII and XIII-2, so it seems logical that this one will have the 3rd game in the series.

What the heck, sounds fun, I'm in.  I can always hope for Rise of the Tomb Raider.  :)

True true. But I heard the loot odds are 10:1 for disappointments. Boat is closer to 10000000000000:1.

No new Humble makes me tempted to throw $10 at this. I already own a bunch but f games from Square but am hoping for a Sleeping Dogs and Thief.

Thief has been part of PS+ and GWG in the past so that's pretty likely. It's not like it's worth any amount of real money, after all.

Protip: If you don't want to spend $10 on this, you can have a friend from the UK buy it for you for ~$6.40. It should be the same games.

So much positiveness in the in last few posts and I just took some knock-off Nyquil. Looks like I'll be opening a surprise gift now.

Sleeping Dogs is GWG right now

Will those be Region-locked for UK? Or ROW keys?

I believe they are us/eu/somewhere else. You can apparently also get a refund from the EU store if you don't like the games. I ordered earlier, and used my real info with the country changed to Switzerland and it went through. Total was $6.84.
