I thought this deserved it's own thread, for $12 you can get XCOM 2 which just came out last year and the lowest price I've seen it go for.

 

You get the game instantly in addition to the mystery games revealed on the first Friday of the month

February 3rd is the deadline for next month so you have to do it before the first Friday of the month.

"After your initial payment of $12.00, you won't be charged again until your plan renews on February 23rd, 2017 when you will be charged $12."

Eh, unless you're thinking there will be a sale that you want to use the bonus % off on the Humble store for, you may as well just cancel as soon as you buy it.

That's what I did when I bought ARK Survival Evolved, it's a good thing you can cancel at anytime.

Damn fine deal, too bad I paid $30 for it and have barely played it. $10.80 if you're a new subscriber and have bought a Humble bundle recently.

Apparently I'm hearing some people are not getting their XCOM 2 keys, I would contact Humble Support if you're having this issue or wait until they fix this.

I totally forgot I had done this for last month's for Dragon's Dogma.... I logged in and had like 7 other AWESOME games waiting for me to redeem on Steam! Plus now XCom 2 and some other mystery games that will likely be great too? I am tempted to just subscribe for a year even...

 

Thanks op, totally spaced on this!!

 

 

*edit*

 

I wasn't paying attention and apparently using PayPal uses their echecks and will take 3-5 days to process... I wish I saw that otherwise I would have just used my credit card... looks like I am not playing XCom 2 on PC tonight : (

They're just Steam keys.

Sounds like a great price, I'll need to watch some videos on the game, hear everyone raving abut it but I don't really know anything about it or if I will care. I think I got the first one bundled with Borderlands 2 or Bioshock Infinite years ago and never touched it

fyi, the bonus discount % stays active until the next monthly bundle. There is no need to wait to cancel

Thanks OP.  This is awesome.  I had heard of these humble bundles before but did not know that there was a surprise grab bag monthly.  Great deal for XCOM 2.

You guys should really check out Reddit Game Deals, if you're into PC games.

 

XCOM 2 is a really strong game. Recommended for those interested. Insane price.

Are you able to be a "new subscriber" for Humble Monthly multiple times? So you can apply the coupon from Humble Bundles each time to bring it down to $10.80?

 

Edit: you can't. Not like xbox live.

Why wouldn't you wait until you get the 6 additional games at 10am on Feb 3rd?

I believe you still get the games because technically you're still subscribed for the duration even if it says otherwise.

Oh man, great price. I got it for $30 on BF for PS4. It's still unopened. I wonder if I can still return it and get this instead. Would prefer to play on a console, but this is a big price difference.

I played the first one on Xbox 360. For the PC version, is it primarily mouse/keyboard or can I play with connected controller (I have a Xbox 360 controller with adapter and a PS4 controller with Bluetooth dongle)

This is dumb. I am STILL waiting for the order to process with stupid PayPal e-check... I wish I just paid by CC..

Reading some launch-era reviews of the game, it sounds like there were some technical issues/lags (which they hipped future patches would fix) and very CPU intensive. Any thoughts?

I have a i7 4770 on my main machine (with Radeon HD 7700 graphics card). Any thoughts on whether that be good enough, or would I be better off with the console version? I assume my i3 d34010 NUC is out of the question.

they just patched the PC version with controller support.
