That's a pretty awesome collection for $30.

Damn, that's huge. I never spend that much on Humble but geez... I might have to...

It seems like Humble Bundle sold out years ago. What's the point of it anymore? What's really humble about the bundle? How is it different than any other video game marketplace (aside from some indie influence still)?

They still support charities.

That is an absolutely staggering amount of games for just $30. :o

Most of the games I have never heard of before, but a few I have. I got the bundle, mostly for The Witness. Although the money goes to support various charities, I cringe whenever I see a bundle, because I feel the developers deserve more than a few bucks per game... :-X

It was B.S. though, you HAD to support one of three charities. Screw the ACLU, give me back the EFF charity option.

Derp. I broke down and bought it. Mainly for The Witness and System Shocks... Alas.

Append:

I donated all 100% to Doctors Without Borders though. The other two both seemed to have sexist agendas, at least partially.

Good choice, Bam. I've known a few doctors who have done the Doctors without Borders. My hat's off to them!

Anyone want "Day of the Tentacle"? It doesn't interest me, so I'm gifting it away. I made a thread about it here.

Bought it too, actually.

While having to activate each game one-by-one on Steam, I got a "you're activating too many products in a short amount of time, try again later." :P

Yeah, I got that too. That reminds me, I still have about 10 left to activate... :-/ I do wish Steam offered a bundle option to automatically recognize a whole list of product keys...

Append:

Speaking of gifts, I already had a handful of the best games in the bundle so now I have giftable licenses for them up for grabs. If anybody is interested reply or PM:

  • Overgrowth Steam Key

  • Octodad Dadliest Catch

  • World of Goo

  • VVVVVV
