Does GMG offer Steam codes for these games? I'll gladly grab that $50 bundle if I can gift away most of those games and the extra copies I'll have lying around.

I think this is for steam keys. Everything I get on GMG is. The thing I'd make sure is that they're individual steam keys instead of one key for all the games, but I think it's very likely the case.

The new humble monthly was just announced, and it's a surprise because it's a leading Blizzard game - Overwatch.

I haven't seen it on sale below $20, but for $12 it gets that plus whatever other games go in the bundle in a month.

(There is a 'referral link' for the monthly, but the program is a bit broken because it gives me $8 and the person who uses it nothing... I'll find a game key... send a PM for a link).

Overwatch has its flaws, but it's a pretty amazing game. I don't like shooters and this is the exception. This seems like the time to get it if it's on the list.

Just saw where BF1 premium pass will be free for PC and console users starting Sept. 11th. - 18th.

https://www.ea.com/games/battlefield/news/road-to-battlefield-premium-free-for-all-players

They are trying real hard to sell BFV.
Bump to say the deal is live. Console versions are also free. The main game is on sale for $5 on PC and $6 for consoles.

Battlefield 4 Premium pass is also free. https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/battlefield/battlefield-4/expansion/battlefield-4-premium

If it wasn't on Origin, I would pick it up in a heartbeat. I'm tired of everyone using their own distribution program (now rumors that Bethesda will be doing it later), so I'll just skip the BF games.

I don't really begrudge them wanting to not give Steam 20% or whatever just for being a monopoly.

It's not that big a deal for me to start another client. If it were just convenience, I'd mind more, but I'm ok with trying to keep more competition.

I feel the same way... Its steam or nothing!!
I totally dont see the need for 10 different clients just to play the same game..

I don't mind competition either, but we already have Blizzard, Steam, GoG, Origin, and Uplay (I'm probably forgetting one). We - as consumers - don't need a new distribution program from each developer.

It's not that many. There are thousands of games and a handful of platforms from the bigger publishers. Origin has dozens of games for its platform and would lose millions in fees to Steam just for being a monopoly. Even big sellers like Humble Bundle and many others use steam keys. That's an awful lot of money for just being a convenient central location. If it were more like 1%...

You forgot the MS/Windows store.

And im with you 100%, steam/GOG or nothing.

I'm actually ok with EA losing millions and Blizzard won't ever die out simply due to the DoTA 2 skin packs and the fact that their games are fairly iconic and will likely always hold a strong fanbase. Steam has served us well for over ten years and while the seasonal sales have petered off over the last few years, there's plenty of other places to get Steam keys for dirt cheap. All these different clients are doing is dividing the PC players. It used to be consoles vs PCs. Then it turned into Xbox vs Playstation vs PC. Now it's Xbox vs Playstation vs Steam vs Origin vs Windows Store vs... It needs to stop somewhere.
