Thread: Humble opinions

    If you're subscribed to Humble Choice, might want to think about pausing this month. I'd say that unless you're really into golf, there's not much in there worth the price. Might even go so far as to say it's one of the weakest offerings we've had so far.

    Looks like another pass this month. WRATH: Aeon of Ruin is a half-finished early access game and the other games I've not even heard of. Or are there any hidden gems in there worth the price?

    Due Process
    House Flipper
    Project Wingman
    Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion
    SimpleRockets 2
    WRATH: Aeon of Ruin
    Möbius Front '83

    House Flipper is actually kinda fun. I hate cleaning in real life, but it's just satisfying to upgrade your mop and make some dump sparkle. There are only so many different things to do though and I'm not aware of any grand purpose that you're trying to accomplish, so by the time you're painting your hundredth wall and installing your millionth radiator it gets pretty repetitive, but if you can make your own fun there should be a decent amount of enjoyment in it. No idea about the rest.

    I triggered some automated mail about coming back for three months for $6 each when pausing. I guess I'll get $6 worth of fun out of some of those if I ever get to them.

    Project Wingman is apparently a really good flight combat game, Turnip Boy is supposedly good and also Yakoob did some kinda crossover promo with it and ROYP. Also did you know WRATH features level design by TTLG's own skacky!?

    I haven't actually played any of them tho.

    Yeah, I think I read about it on TTLG. I'm not really into Early Access games, though. Even with games that get released I prefer to wait a bit until some bugfixes are in. And, honestly, bundling an EA game doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

    Humble's newest bunch of games is:

    Mafia: Definitive Edition
    Iron Harvest
    Project Winter
    Rebel Cops
    The Henry Stickmin Collection
    Farmer's Dynasty
    Between The Stars
    Midnight Protocol

    Mafia of course is excellent and I'd be happy with that alone, but it's also the only game in the bunch that I already own. The others? Nothing too exciting there. Let's see...

    Iron Harvest? Seems fairly interesting for an RTS actually! I like its theme and the setting.
    Project Winter? 8 person multiplayer - nope.
    Rebel Cops? Looks like a poor man's X-Com, but maybe there's something more. I'll probably never find out though!
    Rustler? The idea of a medieval GTA with horses sounds like fun, but from the trailers this one seems to be trying too hard to be funny. Could give this one a go at some point.
    The Henry Stickmin Collection? Dunno what to think about this one. Could be okay?
    Farmer's Dynasty? No, I'm not gonna play one of those farming simulators.
    Between the Stars? Space action RPG, seems interesting, still in early access though.
    Retrowave? Just another one of those retro arcade racing games.
    Midnight Protocol? Seems way too clever for me in my current life situation.

    I finally weaned myself off of it a couple of months back, forcing my way through all the FOMO messages to cancel my subscription.
    I can't remember the last game I got with it that I actually played.

    I know, I just haven't managed to break the FOMO barriers yet. Nowadays the most fun part of Humble Choice is to check out what the newest bunch of games is, but for quite a while it has been rather disappointing now. I haven't actually played any of these games for months either. On the other hand, with Humble Choice I get games that I would normally never buy otherwise, and some of them have turned out to be pretty good! But the thing is that I already have enough games for the rest of my life (and the next one), so any sensible person would just cancel the subscription and only buy games that you're really going to play.

    They do have some devious tricks up their sleeve. Last time I wanted to cancel, they were like, "how about we give you next 3 months half price off?" And I figured 6 dollars for a bunch of games per month is not that bad of a deal, even on the chance most of them end up to be stinkers.

    Hey, I'm gonna try that too!

    I'm not even bothered about losing the Classic plan (old customers who haven't cancelled their subscription get all 10 games) because we'll never see a month where anyone would actually want all 10 games. It's still nice to get those titles that I would normally never buy otherwise, but nowadays I'm lucky if I get to play ten different games a year. I used to do this backlog reducing thing though where I would install a game that I would know nothing about and give it a try. Most games were uninstalled within half an hour, but it was still quite fun and I discovered some decent games that way.

    I think I just keep pausing for now when it's a lackluster month. 12 dollars from time to time is not that much and I buy games like twice a year outside of that, so it's not that big of a hit on my entertainment budget.

    The monthly is kinda weak, but this bundle looks decent:

    Apparently Humble Choice has been "upgraded", and it's now better than ever! Let's take a look at the February games:

    Borderlands 3
    Borderlands 3: Director's Cut
    Black Book
    Per Aspera
    Just Die Already
    Before We Leave
    Paradise Lost

    Less games for the same price doesn't sound like a very good update to me. They say that it's now all about quality over quantity, but those games above don't really seem all that great. Having said that, I don't know any of those apart from Borderlands 3 (and I've never played a Borderlands game either), so I'm happy to be proven wrong!

    From now on there's only one "plan" available for all customers too. The Classic plan for loyal customers is gone and merged with the others, so I guess I don't have to worry about canceling my subscription anymore. They've also released something called the Humble App for Windows - I installed it right away because I thought it's something where I could manage all the game keys and purchases that I've done in Humble Store and the bundles. Turns out that it's only a launcher for the free collection of games (used to be called Treasure Trove or something I think, now it's Humble Games Collection) that you get when you subscribe and nothing more.

    Let me get this straight... the new plan where you don't get to choose any of the games is still called Humble Choice? Well, I guess technically take it or leave it counts as a choice.

    I think it's choice like in the "farmer's choice" sense. They make the choice and present us with their "selection". Then it's just a Hobson's choice for us.

    There are two new bundles available, and both seem pretty decent for a change.

    World War Z: Aftermath
    Dead by Daylight
    PAYDAY 2
    Dungeons of the Endless
    theHunter: Call of the Wild
    Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak
    Homeworld Remastered Collection
    Little Nightmares
    Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
    Peppy's Adventure
    Red Faction: Armageddon
    Hamilton's Great Adventure

    You get them all for $10, and 100% of the money is donated to cancer research! That's a good enough reason to spend your money already, but it's a great bunch of games too, even if they're not exactly brand new anymore.

    Epic Games Store Celebration Bundle:
    Saints Row: The Third Remastered
    Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning
    Mortal Shell
    The Last Campfire
    What the Golf?
    Shakedown: Hawaii

    All games for around $15. I don't know any of those, but they're all something that I might even play at some point. What the Golf? seems particularly interesting to me. The main thing that makes this bundle worth mentioning though, is that it's the first (as far as I know - I might be totally wrong as usual!) bundle with Epic Store games (with Epic keys obviously) in it, and I think that's a great thing. I wouldn't mind seeing a GOG bundle next.

    Newest Humble Bundle has Celeste and Bloodstained and some other games:

    Well, I heard of Tacoma at least and Cloudpunk has been mention here and there on TTLG.

    Humble Bundle have just released their own Ukraine bundle, called Stand with Ukraine Bundle.

    For €36.39+ you'll get 123 items (mostly games, but there are some game assets, tabletop-RPG stuff, and comics too), and the games at least seem very high quality to me. My favourites in this bundle are Quantum Break, Max Payne 3, Slay the Spire, Metro Exodus, and Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons, but there should be something for everyone. The only problem is that as a long-time subscriber to Humble Choice I've already got most of those games, but in this case I'll gladly spend my money anyway - all of it will be donated to Ukraine humanitarian relief efforts!

    The bundle has been available for about an hour, and they've already raised more than €600k. That's awesome and a bit crazy!

    Some other games in that bundle I can personally recommend:

    Driftland: The Magic Revival (think Netstorm crossed with Majesty)
    Yoku's Island Express (Pinball Metroidvania)
    Skullgirls 2nd Encore (Really good fighting game)

    Also really good:

    This War of Mine
    Kerbal Space Program
    The Long Dark

    Folks, if you haven't played the latest Amnesia yet, it's really good! Also, I know this ain't most people's cup of tea, but PGA TOUR 2K21 has been my main after-work chill-out game lately, it's good!

    Overall tho, this bundle isn't as exciting as the itch one. Yeah the games are more high-profile but that just means I've already played all the ones I wanna play! Post Void is the only one that jumps out at me as something I kinda wanna try but haven't already. Orbital Racer and Liberated also look nice. They both have mediocre reviews, but still kinda look like my thing.

    Oh well, it's for a good cause. Bought!

    Wow! The Stand with Ukraine Bundle has raised nearly 14 million euros already! That's fantastic. I wonder how well the bundle is selling in Russia, and if everyone who has bought it gets a special visit from FSB...

    14 hours or so left and they it seems they have added a couple of games since. In any case, it's going to be a real chore checking what games I already have in there and what I can redeem on Steam.
