  1. Previously limited to indie games, the Humble Bundle has teamed up with THQ to offer the ailing publisher's games for a price you can't refuse. Using the familiar pay-what-you-want model we've seen during a dozen other promotions, the Humble Bundle...

    This is how software should be sold. Now before someone starts whining about "OH NO..we wouldn't make the millions we are now!" Remember..software is a renewable resource. You have an infinite inventory. More people would pay a lower price and get it sooner than wait till the price drops on Steam and the such. Also, you would have a happier customer base ready to buy the next new product as soon as it is ready and you would practically eliminate that feeling of wasting $60 on a game you find out you do not like. As you can see too, people would buy it for gifting as well.

    Already own all but 1 of those games (Red Faction Armageddon) but like the games THQ makes and looking forward to Metro Last Light and Company of Heroes 2. Bought the bundle to support the developer anyway :) We need more companies like THQ making games, rather than COD clones.

    In what way do you mean? CoH is up to 3rd game, same with Saints, same with Red Fact, Darksiders is up to two... Rehash after rehash.

    Already own a few of these games, but bought it anyway to support the process and the developer. Plus a portion goes to charity.

    Love these Humble Bumble packs. Even if I never play any of the games, $20 is nothing to me and supports gaming and good causes. Hell, I spend 3 times on that on any given night just drinking beers with my friends.

    Also notice how much they've already MADE from the bundle alone (2.5 million and rising)! I'm sure a lot of that has gone to the charity, but I at least like to do the even split

    Based on the default split (which is what most people will probably tend to do) they've made $1.49 million for THQ. It's a lot of money but probably not that much considering the resources put into making these games.

    That's true, but a lot of these games are no longer selling, so to make 1.49 million of games that were made years ago.. I see it as a win win for dev/user.

    Well, that's great news. Like the others I own some of these, but the others are certainly a bargain in more ways than one.

    Thank You Techspot.

    Before I buy this, I need to know: if I check giftable code, will I be able to gift certain games (the ones I already own) to someone and keep the other games?
  16. Saints row the Third is the only key that is separate the others are all one steam key.

    As far as I know, you can't. The cd key is one for the whole bundle, except for Saints Row, which has a separated cd key.

    he said CoH, not COD. Company of Heroes =/=Call of Duty

    Yeah, but I think he meant to point out the different: 9 games to three. Still, three is three, still a rehash.

    Thats true. But in definition sequel =/= rehash. Definition doesnt really apply to COD and a few other series though, where sequel=rehash.
