I mean my main point was that those credit vouchers aren't useless like they used to be, since they had a minimum spend and now they don't. If you made a purchase more than $10, it was always more efficient to use those 5% off coupons they give out like candy. Now the credit vouchers actuslly have a use. So you can take your stale gif and shove it up your ass

 

Buying $10 worth of games to get a coupon worth 50 cents doesn't appeal to everyone, Kyle.

There's technically an infinite series of numbers between 2 and 4.  I believe you mean the whole integer between 2 and 4 as the answer.

Total War Warhammer III is probably the first game I've preordered since maybe the 2nd one. 20-25% isnt a bad deal considering

It's all Biden's fault if we're being completely honest with ourselves.

Looks like an bad above average Indie Gala Groupees exactly the right trash quality bundle that I expect from Humble Bundle nowadays.

"My life is garbage" is IATCG. Don't even interact with that piece of trash. He's been banned at least 50 times now, yet he still comes back to be annoying.

Dark thought I just had was to have kojima make a twisted metal game.

 

That would require him to stop making avant-garde nonsense games that are more ludicrous than Fast and Furious action scenes and more needlessly symbolic than Jodorowsky's films. One of the most overrated developers out there whose primary appeal is with counterculture hipsters.

I'm waiting for pizza NFTs. Too often have I had to fight soccer moms for the last DiGiorno when they go on sale with member coupon at my local grocery store. Too many times have I had to fight other basement dwellers for the last slice of hot sausage pizza at a Cici's buffet.

 

Cici's. They lure you in with their low buffet cost, but nobody mentions the prices of drinks and the dangers of wet floors due to grease and back sweat!

Welcome back, IATCG. Glad you picked a name that suits you this time.

 

Also, nice picture of a piece of paper you added to a generic case.

The last time I bought from them, I got a PEGI Luigi's Mansion 3. Tried playing it with a friend with a US version and couldn't. Decided that the slight discount isn't worth the hassle, especially with first party Nintendo titles being only $50 at the time.

No free DMI point code that I know of, but I wanted to make people aware of a free 2-month Skillshare trial available from DMI Rewards for 0 points:

Skillshare is a great tool, and 2 months is a good amount of time to learn a skill in the new year.

Game has over 40,000 reviews and SteamDB pegs ownership somewhere between 1M-2M users.

Maybe the olds are out of touch...?

 

The olds are definitely out-of-touch. It was in 3 bundles before, which is why a lot of us own it. The base game. Not the crap cosmetic DLC.

 

All you really need is the $1 base game.  The rest is all really lame cosmetics (different offices and stuff, not even new components) and the eSports Expansion which is sort of mediocre.  The free IT expansion in the base game is more fun.

 

Although you build PCs, the game is really another management sim.  Stay within budgets, buy business upgrades, yadda yadda.  The PC building part is 70% management (how to most inexpensively meet the client need) 25% PC stuff (troubleshooting problems, tweaking BIOS and running benchmarks) and 5% "puzzle" stuff (catching on that the client really wants all grey cables to get that 5-star review)

 

That sounds like exactly what the olds are into, so it's no surprise that the management sim aspect gets some favorable reviews from them. I imagine a bunch of Gen X people who always thought about owning their own computer shops for a side hustle are really into this. $15 for cosmetic DLC for a PC building sim is still less bundle-worthy than most of their other bundles. At least with game creation bundles, budding developers gain tools for developing more games for less than they would've normally paid. And I'd consider strategy war games less niche than this game, too.

 

But I could be wrong, so maybe we need some ground rules for what we criticize Humble for.

PC Building simulator 2022 bundle: Learn how to build a PC by spending 2 to 3 times more than what you normally would.

I thought this was a joke that I didn't really understand because I don't read posts more than a few sentences long. But wow. There's legitimately a Humble Bundle for PC Building Simulator, with DLC in the two higher tiers, and the highest tier costs $15.

 

PC building simulators are stupid: you're a PC gamer, you are presumably old enough to allocate budget to buy the PC you want, but you dip into that budget to buy a fucking game where you SIMULATE building a PC with real-life brands and parts? If you wanted a nice bed, would you buy a bed expansion for The Sims? Can you actually use either of them? No, no you can't.

 

Humble thinking this game is popular enough to deserve a bundle instead of a store discount reveals how out-of-touch they are.
