Default THQ Humble Bundle

http://www.humblebundle.com/

Humble Bundle is actually selling 6 THQ games for $1 or adds Saints Row the Third if you pay more than average.

The 6 games are:
Darksiders
Metro 2033
Red Faction Armageddon
Company of Heroes
Opposing Fronts
Tales of Valor


It seems that THQ is doing whatever it can to stay solvent at this point. Even pretty much giving away their games for whatever people will pay them.

Edit: Titan Quest and the Red Faction: Armageddon Path to War DLC were added if you beat the average price now.

Edit 2: Warhammer 40K has been added as well if you beat the average price.

Hum. Only one I don't have (and might want to play) is tales of valor. Maybe I should stop buying new games and wait till they show up on humble bundle !

Holy Fucking Crap! I never thought I'd see something like this.

Though it feels kind of sad THQ seems to be going under.

Humble Bundle is a site where you pay what you want for games. For Steam Keys, the minimum amount you can pay is $1, and since these games are only available via Steam, the minimum you can pay is $1. You can pay as much as you want though, and if you pay more than average (currently $5.30) you also get Saints row the Third.

Sorry I didn't put that much information on the original post. I am posting from my phone, and it is a royal pain to type this way.

Saint's Row 3 is worth $6 by itself, though it's better with the season pass DLC (extra story missions, gear, gang members).

Since it's a regular Steam key you can always get it now and add the DLC during the Steam Xmas sale.

Child's Play and Red Cross are the charities, so if you aren't joining the Child's Play drive here (link below, donation matching of $15 + 27%) you can donate by buying this bundle.

Wow. This is not your average indie bundle. These aren't even indie games. These are seven of the best, most highly-regarded AAA games published by THQ in recent years, for only a few bucks.

You'd have to be functionally retarded not to buy this bundle.

I bought into it for 6 even though all I don't have is darksiders and saints row, which I don't really want either. I'm not a huge fan of THQ, but I'd like to see them still solvent : )

Give SR3 a try, it's goofy fun. Just try not to smile during the opening bank sequence

when the cops are asking for your autograph and for you to please stop shooting them

I expect a few more THQ games to be added to the pile over the next couple days too in typical humble bundle fashion. To think, I paid $40 for pretty much this pack a year or so ago.

Doesn't matter, I'm buying another.

Wow, this is amazing. Can I buy this through Steam or do I need to go through that site (I can't access it from here)?

It has options to pay through amazon, google, or paypal. I personally do the amazon option. You get the steam keys from a webpage that they give you after you pay (they also email the link to you).

This is a steal. I think I already have them though. Note DLC is extra for Sain't Row.

Gotta go through their site.

If you have a particular amount in mind, I can buy it (you can purchase it as a gift and get a giftable URL) for you and you can just send paypal back if you'd like. Current "minimum" to get Saint's Row 3 (and any additional stuff they tack on later) is $5.22 as of this posting.

Just PM me if need be.

(Note: just so I don't get a ton of PM's from a million noob posters... this offer is valid for KeithTalent ONLY, sorry)

I found it interesting that there are people that are complaining about this humble bundle being too restrictive such as Ars Technica's Kyle Orland.

I already own pretty much all of these games, but I'll probably buy it. I've been meaning to set up a secondary Steam account that I can dedicate to a HTPC.

That article is sensationalist. I'm also surprised at some of the reader comments.

"Oh no, big-budget games that require Steam DRM and Windows only? I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM HUMBLE BUNDLE EVER AGAIN"

Whatever. For every person that's really that die-hard about the games being indie and whatnot, a dozen new people will come lured by awesome deals.

I dropped 15 bucks for the bundle. Shit was so cheap I'd feel like a crook if I paid any less.
