I read this as "THQ Humble Bundle, big titties"



Good deal, even without titties.

They'd probably be rolling in cash if they made games with those.

You could, of course, just buy multiple copies of the bundle if you want one for your kid.
Thanks for the reply. I should have looked closer before posting because I did find the disclaimer.

And that's what I did....I bought the bundle for my kid. And then realized that SR3 was M17+. My kid is 14. Talk about a moment of bad parenting......not sure he's ready for a video game with sex toys in it. I should have looked first. I can't really tell him not to play it....me gifting it to him is like an endorsement. I guess we'll be having another one of those "talks"......

Sorry for rant. I'm still frustrated at myself. Look first, then purchase. Not the other way around.

Try to find a mod for it. Usually the mods tend to take off clothes and such, but perhaps there is one that changes a dildo to a pretzel or bugle or something. Not that he won't eventually figure it out.

I paid $10 too even though I only needed Saints Row 3rd. This is a cool idea, can't wait to see the next Humble Bundle

I concur.

As far as my money goes, I have online accounts or deal in cash/metals...but I can't figure out how to push the check through my monitor and into my account. Got it on the 5th, still don't know what to do with it...I've never accepted a check (this was mailed to me without my consent). Even 20 years ago these things were stupid and unsecure.

Seriously, who the hell uses these things? That's like paying a dollar to ship a letter to your friend asking him what hes doing tomorrow. Except he wont get it until a week later, and you could have done it instantly and free with a computer. Even worse, there's no guarantee you'll even get it...a check is not even a promise or guarantee of money. You just fill out a worthless slip of paper with whatever imaginary amount of money you want to pretend to give somebody but they'll never actually get anything unless you actually have the cash and want them to have it. In which case the only legitimate way is to just pay them the cash in the first place.

Grrr...

Charities are good; but for this particular bundle, I made 100% of my payment to THQ. They're pretty much a charity right now too.

The average when I paid yesterday was $5.30 or something like that so we know that isn't happening.

were getting off topic, but almost all banks have the ability to take a picture of your check to deposit them. Does your "bank" have the option?

What exactly are "online accounts" that arent the websites attached to a bank? Never heard of someone these days not having a bank.

Don't do that. SR3 is definitely NOT for kids. Tell him you're sorry, you made a mistake on that one and then contact Steam support to remove it from his account.

INGDirect is the only online bank I know of that had no affiliated B&M branch office. Capital One recently bought them, but I don't think they have any B&M either. I've used INGDirect exclusively for quite some time and they have accepted mail-in check deposits forever and have had a scan and deposit app (PC and phone) for quite some time.

There are several online banks like this. Emigrant Direct and American Express come to mind. AmEx does have offices, but you can't walk in to one and make a deposit.
