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

That is what I thought was happening, but I just went through and checked several purchases it and does appear the the “hidden” keys are still intact for a few non-Choice things like the Warhammer Bundle I purchased a few months back, so it is only the Humble Choice Classic bundles that are auto-revealing my keys. That seems to be tied to how I’m selecting the choices each month according to @arrendek 's information, so I will pay more attention to that next time around.

Monthly pause reminder. Charges later today.

BTW, I got an email from Humble telling me that they have a 50% off deal on Control DLC starting today. I think they and the publisher want to get out ahead of the fact that for Steam users, the base game will still show up in one’s library as the Ultimate Edition:

But it’s not, right? They need to fix that shit

No, it’s not.

It’s a bit like what happened with Dying Light. I bought it near launch and then later the only version available to buy on Steam became the one with the DLC called Dying Light: The Following, so later when I’d go to the product page it would say “This game is in your library” although only the base game was.

I think that it might also preclude being able to get one of those “complete your collection” deals to get the DLC for cheap, so you’re forced to pick it up at a reseller or wait for a DLC-specific sale on Steam.

A new Monthly/Classic/Choice to be revealed tomorrow! Hoping it’s not full of games I already have! Any bold predictions?

Can you list 12 games you already have, please?

Well, I just bought Space Crew and Cloudpunk, so those are almost guaranteed to be included either this coming month or next. It’s almost a given. ;-)

Hopefully you already have Outriders, I need that on PC.

Seems unlikely though.

Only if “having it” through Game Pass Ultimate counts, hehe.

Is it supposed to be good? I heard/read it was kind of generic.

I totally want Cloudpunk to be in it , and Jenny LeClue.

I predicted Space Crew a couple months ago, I’ll do it again. :)

Hmm… about time for darksiders genesis

The last couple have included some pretty great titles I didn’t already own, so my completely self-centered prediction is that I’m due for a bundle of stuff that holds no interest for me.

Darksiders Genesis meets that criteria and I’ll add Persona 4 Golden (especially since it’s been on massive sale pretty much everywhere for the past two months) and Carrion (also discounted frequently lately) to the prediction list. Round out with an indie platformer, a twin-stick shooter, an anime game and an older survival horror title and it’s a full slate of nope for me.

One game that’s been around for a now surprisingly long enough time and was half off on Steam but not so on Humble is No Man’s Sky.

Well… April…

Wow… Lets just say it could be better.

Aven Colony while pretty good, is like 4 years old.

Yeah, I saw the rumored games and… “yawnaroonie” as Mark Hammill’s Joker would say.

Yup, that’s a pause for sure.

Wow, even I think this month is mediocre, as I own pretty much about everything I’d want except for maybe 3 games.

I don’t have F1 2020 yet, so I’m in for that.

Yeah, Aven Colony was pretty good. Sniper Contracts may be decent and Popup Dungeon has me interested, but I can’t say I want either a ton. Popup Dungeon would be the bigger draw for me.

Oof. We’ll have to see, but this might be my first pause ever.

In Other Waters probably isn’t for everyone, but it’s a well-made, chill story/exploration game. And as others mentioned, Aven Colony is a good sci-fi builder.
