This Humble Bundle has some great games, and also a bit of a rubbish one.
The new Humble Bundle is called Hope for Orphans; the default charity this time helps kids with no parents to get on in life after they’re tipped out of state systems at 18, usually with nowhere to go and no resources.
For $1 or more, you’ll receive Red Orchestra 2: Rising Storm Game of the Year Edition, Killing Floor, Blackhole and IL2 Sturmovik 1946, each of which have very good critical and Steam reviews.
If you beat the average, which was $7.25 at time of writing, you’ll also score Killing Floor 2, King’s Bounty: Platinum Edition and Homefront: The Revolution. Two of the titles on this tier also have very good reputations! The other, uh, not so much.
Cough up $10 or more and you’ll get Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, Call to Arms with the Deluxe Edition upgrade – both of which are, once again, very well received – and if you’re a subscriber to Humble Monthly, $2 Humble Wallet credit. There are a couple of soundtrack bonuses, too.
Homefront: The Revolution is the only big name triple-A in the pack, being the Deep Silver-published sequel to THQ’s Homefront, but it definitely whiffed at release and doesn’t seem to have recovered. On the other hand, the Red Orchestra series has always been a favourite among the hardcore PC crowd for its emphasis on realism, making ArmA look wussy by comparison, and the Killing Floor games are bringing the co-op love we’re all gagging for now that Valve seems to have lost interest in Left 4 Dead.
As usual, you decide how your payment is split between publishers, charity and organisers – including an optional tip for us. There are only a few Mac and Linux builds this time, and no DRM-free options.
Well? Go take advantage.
