Today, Humble Bundle launched the Humble Square Enix Bundle.
As per usual with Humble Bundles, it’s pay-what-you-want for a number of games — this time, including Thief Gold, Mini Ninjas, Anachronox, Hitman: Codename 47, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and the legendary (for its hype-to-quality ratio) Daikatana.
If you pay above the average (currently just over $6), you'll also get Deus Ex: Invisible War, Deus Ex: The Fall, Hitman Absolution, Nosgoth Veteran Pack, and Battlestations: Midway.
If you throw in $15 or more, you'll receive all of the above plus Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut, Just Cause 2, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition, and Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days.
Everything in that last group is worth playing. So that’s essentially $15 for $169 of solid gaming, plus whatever you want to call Daikatana.
I both love and hate Humble Bundles. Love, because hey, it’s a bunch of games (many of them good) for dirt cheap. And much of the proceeds go to charity. Who does’t love charity?
Hate, because it usually means the physical pain of watching my backlog grow larger and larger, and not being able to do anything about it. I’ve probably played, oh, 10 percent of the games I’ve purchased through Humble Bundles.
We all have our crosses to bear in this life.
The promotion ends on Aug. 5th, so get your Hitman/Deus Ex cravings sated before then.
