Humble Bundle key redemption is awesome again (mostly) but the games are kinda meh

Was offered the $4 discount since I had paused last month. Metro Exodus for $8 was too good to pass on, so I’m in. Getting DS:Genesis and Hellpoint included was icing on the cake. I seriously doubt I will ever touch the other titles in the bundle.

Almost ready to just cancel my sub all around. I seem to not want anything or already have it for six months or so now.

I folded and grabbed it for $8, though I probably shouldn’t have. CSD3 is on the wishlist and Exodus sounds interesting, so maybe I’ll get my money’s worth from those two, though I’m a little concerned as to whether I’ll be able to run Exodus. Genesis is great, but I already own it. Relicta and Vane are both interesting, but strike me as the kind of games where I’m interested enough to register the key but perhaps never interested enough to actually play them. We need a handy term for those.

I already owned Metro on Epic so I guess I own it on Steam now also.

For eight bucks, it’s a marginal bundle. Cheap enough for a what the hell why not reaction.

So is CSD an overcooked knock off?

Emphatically no. For one thing the original CSD predates Overcooked by 4 years. For another, the gameplay is completely different.

There’s a demo for the original CSD if you’re curious: Hail To The Chef: Cook, Serve, Delicious Demo | Rock Paper Shotgun

Sweet, I"ll give it a shot. I had just never heard of it before.

Good bundle.

You know, I’d like to see HB include some more of the interesting Chinese/Korean/Japanese indies. It seems like we rarely get a Sands of Salzaar or Lost Technology or equivalent game in these bundles, and if the point of HB Choice is to get value out of underserved but high quality titles, there’s quite a bit there. And I’m sure there’s many out there languishing in obscurity that I don’t know about.

It’s a single-player time management, plate-spinning restaurant simulation, basically.

Thank you, I was trying to come up with the right words to describe it and those are pretty good.

Hmmm, that is a very good consideration. Might’ve tipped me in the direction of grabbing the bundle. :-)

I’m in for eight bucks.

Yeah eight dollars is tough to pass up.

Remember , Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition drops for free on 5/6/21 to all existing Exodus owners on PC. So register your key before the new version is offered, as I didn’t see it mentioned anywhere as being free after that date.

Thanks for the reminder, totally snagged it today.

You all are reliably getting this for $8? Last time I tried this (er, last month) I was effectively told to feck off and don’t let the door hit me on the way out. Maybe it’s a regional thing.

I reliably get the $4 off offer after I’ve been paused for a few months. Not otherwise.

Paused for one month, got the $4 coupon.

Yeah, I’ve never experimented with the time frame - usually my “pass” stretches go several months.

Them timing this for the Metro Exodus Enhanced edition is a great move, looking forward to playing it!
