Not sure if Mooby predicting a bundle to be good is talking me into subscribing or out of subscribing..
I've added that to my list of "Reasons to NOT Subscribe."

I liked it, but I seem to be in the minority. I posted a long review elsewhere that no one wants to read.
It's people like you that made 38 Studios fold. Are you proud of yourself? You made Curt Schilling cry.
I also liked KOA: Reckoning, even despite it being easy + not having a lot of personality w/ its characters & storylines.
Dead Kel was had more personality than a good majority of most of the base-game content.

At launch, all games in the monthly bundle will include Steam codes. However, in the future, some games will be DRM-free and may not be on Steam, or may appear on other platforms.
For this $12 monthly fee w/out knowing most of what you're getting for games, they better be offering up at least Steam-keys + separate DRM-FREE downloads for every title they can.
Only exception on not getting Steam-keys probably would be any titles NOT found on Steam - i.e. most games that are (unfortunately) Origin-exclusive.

If you ask me it should have stayed there along with dial-up, Realplayer, and Chip's Challenge.
Why should it have stayed there?
I'm sure fans of a certain style of games that many publishers often no longer want to greenlight anymore finally got something that's in a very similar style of games from back in that era can go ahead and rejoice!
And there's bound to be some gamers who never-ever played any kind of tile-based, party-based, dungeon-crawling RPG, give Grimrock a shot, and then realize, "Hey, this is different than your typical modern-day RPG...and I like/love this!"

Re: 'The monthly.' That they'll probably only reveal/tease one game a month is the worst part. I guess they want to emulate those shitty 'What's in the box' websites that sell crap for a monthly sub? There's a good chance the four games included for $12 will be a good deal... but I'm not buying anything blind. Certainly not when the quality of games in their other bundles has been going down the crapper.
Plus, who knows what kind of repeats we could possibly wind-up with.

I'd like to thank Humble this week for coming up w/ nothing for the Weekly and saving me a bit of money from either $1 or BTA tier.
Looks like this week, my Humble Weekly Bundle $ went to Groupees for BAB9 pre-order instead.
Oh, about about the $12 subscription for a Humble Monthly Bundle - meh, no thanks.

Kult could be pretty interesting, but it is single player only. I'm not sure the single player, old-school ARPG would hold up that well since we're now spoiled with games like Path of Exile, Diablo 3, Torchlight 2, etc.
MysterD is fine w/ single-player ARPG's. I played D3 alone, TL2 alone, Dungeon Siege series alone, Silverfall games alone, Sacred series alone, and numerous other ARPG's alone.
Also, MysterD is happy for Kult that both a Steam-key + separate DRM-FREE download came w/ this Groupees bundle.

When Square Enix announced the release date for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, it also revealed a tiered pre-order scheme. The more pre-orders the game received, the more rewards players would unlock. Today, the “Augment Your Pre-Order” plan is no more.The publisher says that the negative feedback on the program led to the decision. “We’ve spent a lot of time reading through all of your comments, working to understand how we can try to make things right for you,” the publisher writes. “After much thought and reflection, we decided to close down the program and make all incentive content available to anyone who pre-orders Deus Ex: Makind Divided or purchases a Day 1 edition of the game.”This means that players will no longer have to choose which pre-order bonus they receive at different tiers.Everyone will get:•Intruder (stealth), Enforcer (aggressive), and classic packs•Skins•Extra mission•Comic Book•SoundtrackThe release date is now fixed at February 23, and Square Enix no longer has plans to distribute it four days early based on pre-order numbers. The publisher says that the changes should be applied automatically to your order with no action required on your part.

Tebow didn't play you for very long. In fact, his hours don't even show up. Did he just buy you and put you in his backlog? That's gotta suck, considering he spent 2,604 hours in A:CM.
MysterD is worse than Aliens: Colonial Marines. You heard it here first.
He must've got a Steam refund.
