Support Charity With the Humble Rockstar Bundle

la-noire-artwork-02

The newest bundle to hit Humble Bundle’s library is none other than the giant Rockstar Games. That’s right – now’s your chance to grab some Steam keys for classic Rockstar Games for dirt cheap. Plus, you’ll be supporting charity in the process. As always with Humble Bundle, it’s a win-win situation! Head on over to the Humble Bundle website to check it out now.

This bundle will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Rainforest Alliance. Don’t be fooled by the name – the Rainforest Alliance is dedicated to not just environmental challenges but also urgent societal issues like inequity, poverty, and biodiversity loss. Visit the Rainforest Alliance website for more information!

So, let’s get to the actual bundle. The dollar tier will net you the early-to-mid-2000’s era of Rockstar Games: Manhunt, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto III, and Max Payne. If you missed out on these classics, be sure to grab at least this tier as you’ll get to take a nice trip down memory lane. These games pinpoint the time when Rockstar was really making a name for itself, so they’re important pieces of history.

If you beat-the-average (which is currently sitting around $9.50), you’ll also get Steam keys of Bully: Scholarship Edition, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, L.A. Noire, and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. This tier’s games vary a little more on the eras, as you’ll be getting L.A. Noire which came out in 2011, but San Andreas came out around 2005.

For the final tier, you’ll need to pay $15 or more. This tier nets you all of L.A. Noire’s DLC, Grand Theft Auto IVGrand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, and Max Payne 3. This tier features recent games from Rockstar.

And yes, unfortunately Grand Theft Auto V is nowhere to be seen here, which we’re sure many of you were hoping for. Still though, this is a great bundle if you’re a fan of Rockstar’s games. Be sure not to miss it – the bundle will be around for 13 more days.

Grab The Red Solstice For Free From Humble Bundle

The-Red-Solstice

The Red Solstice, a sci-fi real-time strategy game is free for a limited time from Humble Bundle. You can head on over to the game page here to get a free key that you can redeem on Steam.

Set in the distant future on Mars, The Red Solstice is a tactical, squad-based strategy game. Command a group of marines as you fight to take back Mars from martian horrors. With an extensive single-player campaign with a terrifying story and a co-op mode with up to eight players, The Red Solstice offers everything for anyone!

This may be an obscure reference but a typical level in The Red Solstice plays out like a custom campaign in Blizzard’s Warcraft III. If you’re familiar with the popular custom open RPG maps, you’ll know what to expect in The Red Solstice. You’ll issue orders and waypoints through a top-down view. Plan out your attacks accordingly and position your squad carefully lest you fall prey to the alien hordes.

Your squad consists of four marines that can be upgraded as they gain experience. Your marines will be able to specialize in certain techniques, like healing allies, deploying defensive auto-turrets, launching explosives, and more. Try out the single-player campaign, and when you’ve had your fill of the space terror story, grab some friends and take on one of the challenge missions! Work together or go down trying!

Just be quick though – these keys must be redeemed on Steam before the end of the month. Even if you have the game in your Humble Bundle library, the keys will expire at the end of January so redeem them as soon as possible!

IGN Has Acquired Humble Bundle

Humble-Bundle-logo

In an unexpected turn of events, the video games media giant IGN has announced today that they’ve acquired Humble Bundle. The finer details of the deal have not been disclosed, but this could be potentially big news for Humble Bundle.

Humble Bundle, as most know, is a digital distribution service where you get to pay what you want for a nice collection of software. Humble Bundle started out in 2010 selling indie game bundles that were carefully curated and that’s how it became so popular. The early bundles contained stellar games for very low prices, and soon enough Humble Bundle went on to start selling books, audiobooks, PC software, and more. They’re still mostly known for their great video game bundles though.

The best part about this is that everyone wins! When you’re making a purchase through the Humble Bundle website, you can decide how your money is split. You can set how much goes to the developers, Humble Bundle themselves, and charity. Gamers got some awesome games while charities were getting much needed donations.

But what does this buyout mean for the future of Humble Bundle? Jeffrey Rosen, CO-founder and CEO of Humble Bundle released an official statement today saying that they chose IGN because “they really understand our vision, share our passion for games, and believe in our mission to promote awesome digital content while helping charity.” Rosen goes on to assure that Humble Bundle will remain as it is today, and nothing major will change.

Unfortunately, while this sounds all good, the community has already spoken up about their doubts. Fans are concerned about the conflict of interest for a video games journalism site combining forces with a digital distribution platform. Since IGN is part of the games being sold now, they have a financial interest and investment in them. Nobody expecting anything drastic to happen short-term, but many are already concerned for the future of Humble Bundle.

October 2017’s Humble Monthly Revealed: Rise of the Tomb Raider, Furi, and More

rotr

It’s that special time of the month again! No, not that time of the month – it’s the time when Humble Monthly subscribers finally get to unwrap their monthly presents! For October we’ve got Wargame Red DragonFuri, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Orwell, Seasons After Fall, The Shrouded Isle, and finally Scanner Sombre.

Wargame Red Dragon is a military strategy game in which you combine the forces of all seventeen united nations under one goal: wipe the enemy out! Wargame lets you choose and command over 1,000 units that have been painstakingly recreated as historically accurate as possible. Strike from land, sea, and air using a variety of tactics to ensure that your foe stays on their toes at all times.

Furi is a slick, fast-paced dual-stick shooter dripping with style. A man has been captured by a mysterious force, and he spends most of his days facing unrelenting torture. One day, an enigmatic figure frees him and hands him a sword and a gun, encouraging him to fight for his freedom. Thus, Furi begins! Furi features cut-throat boss fights that will test every reflex you’ve got. Perfect for action game lovers!

Rise of the Tomb Raider, as the name suggests, tells the story of Lara’s upbringing. Being the first to discover an ancient mystery detailing the Lost City of Kitezh, Lara has caught the unwanted attention of a dangerous organization known as Trinity. Help Lara discover the Lost City and its secrets before Trinity beats her to the punch!

Orwell is probably the most unique game out of the bunch. Taking place in a country called the Nation, the authoritarian government passes a bill that allows the government to spy on its citizens for national security concerns. As you can probably the guess, the title of the game is a direct reference to author George Orwell’s 1984. The player must then watch random citizen live their lives and report anything suspicious. But, as they say, every action has a consequence…

If all of the above is a bit too heavy for you, why not relax with Seasons After Fall? It’s a 2D puzzle game where you play as a fox that can manipulate seasons at will. Boasting a beautiful art style and a fantastic soundtrack, Seasons After Fall is the perfect game to get lost in.

In The Shrouded Isle, you play as a high priest in charge of a cult. Your god underneath the ocean is on the verge of awakening, so now you must prune out the heretics. In this simulation management game, you’ll need to think through every choice as you keep your cult together. Players must make difficult decisions such as choosing which aristocratic families to enlist, which to ignore, and even who to sacrifice to your beloved god.

Scanner Sombre is a first-person adventure game. Waking up in a cave with no recollection of the events before, you soon find a VR headset and a LIDAR scanner. Now that you’re able to light way using dots, you’ll uncover an ancient mystery that should have remained a secret.

You can subscribe the get the next Humble Monthly right here on the website.

August 2017 Humble Monthly Features Overcooked, Pillars of Eternity, and More

Overcooked

With every new month comes a new Humble Monthly, and this month’s bundle is quite the doozy! The first of the bundle is One Piece Burning Blood, an anime fighter based on the hit anime series. This is second (or third?) time a One Piece game has been in the Humble Monthly Bundle, and that’s pretty awesome! Burning Blood is a hectic mix of a 3-on-3 fighter like Marvel Vs Capcom and a 3D fighter.

The second game is Offworld Trading Company, a strategy game all about trading economics. As a new business starting up on the freshly colonized Mars, your job is to ensure the economy thrives and flourishes. Business is business though, so you’ll be competing with other rivals in the market who will stop at nothing to gain land on the Martian surface.

The third game is the breakout RPG Pillars of Eternity. Reminiscent of classic isometric PC RPGs like Bauldur’s Gate and Neverwinter NightsPillars of Eternity features a world full of wonder and amazement, and you get to explore it all with a party of your choosing. Create your own heroes, build relationships with NPCs, and take on ferocious monsters using a strategic combat system.

The fourth game in the bundle is NBA 2K17, the latest entry in the NBA 2K franchise. With a 90 on Metacritic, NBA 2K17 seems to be the premiere basketball game, but on Steam it’s got mixed reviews at the moment. The general consensus seems to be that its great for first timers looking for a neat basketball game, but veterans of the series might be a little more hard on it.

The fifth game is War for the Overworld, an RTS/dungeon management game. As a banished Underlord, it’s your time to rise! Build your dungeon to lure your enemies into dastardly traps, and take over the overworld as their defenses fall. Become the ultimate Underlord!

The sixth game is Overcooked! Grab some friends because Overcooked! is a hilarious and frantic local co-op game where you and up to three friends shuffle around the kitchen trying to fulfill orders. Cook and serve but make sure not to bump into each other – yes that is an actual hazard that can happen!

The seventh game is Wuppo, a strange yet charming puzzle platforming game. You play as a “wum” who is looking for a new place to call home. You’ll need to utilize and manipulate items and the world around you to stay safe and find an ideal home.

The final game is Nongünz, an action platformer roguelike with a dark fantasy theme. Featuring a slick art style, Nongünz features tight platforming action with a bit of idle game mixed in. As you progress, your graveyard will begin to fill with all sorts of curiosities: cultists, martyrs, gravediggers, and they’ll all help in their own… unique ways.

Like what you see? You never know what you’ll get in these monthly bundles, but the games are always good! You can check it out for yourself on the Humble Bundle website.
