Humble Bundles are now awesome again


#483

Holy crap, this is up to almost $4 million!

I had to buy it as the bloke in my office was asking about modulo operations as he is tooling around in R at the moment for some reason. Of all the things to make it into this bundle is R in a Nutshell! How random!

#486

Pretty loaded bundle if you didn’t have much of that stuff before. Bummer that they can sell out of the titles. Was there any indication when they announced the bundle that quantities were limited?


#487

Not at launch, no. They added the disclaimer a few hours in.


#488

Which was why I bought in instead of waiting to see the full roundup,which was my previous inclination.


#489

How does running out of keys work? Is the key assigned to me when I buy it or when I click the link on the Humble Bundle page? Fortunately I was interested in Subnautica and redeemed my key immediately, but if I’d been one of the first 100k to buy but didn’t redeem my key immediately, would I not have one now?


#490

I’m guessing if you bought before they announced Subnautica was no longer part of the bundle, they would still honor the original agreement you made at point of sale and given you a key. Whereas I bought after that (wish I had been paying attention) so no Subnautica for me.


#491

Yeah, I believe the key is assigned to the purchase. You can then claim it for yourself or give it to someone else.


#492

This is a pretty crazy bundle. I bought in for The Witness alone. I’ve been waiting to come down to $15, and figured doubling that to donate to the ACLU was reasonable. The 50+ other games added to my steam collection (never to be played) are a nice bonus!


#493

NM, that was weird. Found keys


#494

I don’t understand. Is $30 the minimum?


#495

Yes, and well worth that


#496

I already reached my gaming budget for this month though. :(


#497

Hmm. Maybe just do it for charity, and think of the games & stuff as a pat on the back? 100% of the proceeds from this bundle are going to the charities. (I’m SO good at rationalizing collecting games, you’d almost expect me to have an obscene number in my Steam account … oh, wait. I do)


#498

Yeah, I had to just jump in at 30 bucks to the ACLU (Doctors without borders gets my money at SGDQ) for “The Witness”. I figured that I would dislike this game, as I really didn’t like Braid, I would wait for the price to drop to try it out. But I can’t say no to donating to the ACLU, and I already had subnautica, so no biggie that they used up all 100k keys.


#499

I’d wanted Stardew and Subnautica, and being able to get Day of the Tentacle without giving a cent to Double Fine was the icing on the cake. Majority ACLU but everyone got at least $5.


#500

New Monthy Bundled landed today. Not a great as last month:

Total War: WARHAMMER
Poly Bridge
Space Run Galaxy
RIVE
Flat Heroes
Morphblade
Uurnog

Next month early buy is the Witness


#501

Besides Warhammer, this bundle is entirely meh for me. Warhammer is so awesome I guess it balances out.


#502

I don’t know any of those games but since I forgot to cancel I guess I own them now. Lucky me!
