Humble Bundle

(1/14) > >>

So new humble bundle just got upped and the highlights(at least for me) are Chroma Squad, Spaera and Assault Cactus Android. Even just those 3 games for (as of right now) 4 bucks is quite a steal.

Spaera is something in the vein of puzzle fighter or tetris attack, saw a demonstration of it at some fighting game tournament awhile back. It's got interesting ideas with unique character abilities and its not your standard tetris physics which takes some getting used to. It is still in early access so, the usual stuff applies. Also, this game doesn't seem to have an in-game tutorial tutorial, I had to go to their website to learn the game systems which is quite a big misstep I think

Assault Cactus Android seems a pretty solid top down twin stick style shooter. It also boasts 1-4 player local co-op which I am not sure how that works on pc, I guess if you have that many usb ports you can plug in that many controllers.

Streamed some Chroma Squad earlier. A very competent SRPG thus far, it really makes use of the sentai theme. So far, I'm most impressed by them sneaking in some Backstreet boys lyrics in the tutorial.

Not sure where I'm taking this thread but hoping maybe people can share their opinions on whether each humble bundle is worth it. Most of them are however, the price to content ratio is usually just too good. Maybe an opinion of what games are worth your time in each bundle?

Humble Bundles make me wish I was more of a master race guy.  I'm just not comfortable enough with playing most games with a mouse and keyboard to spend any money on it.  It's really a shame the steam machine (and the portable steam machine) didn't pan out.

Frostillicus:
^ Just like anything, it just takes some getting used to. Most modern PC games have the option to play with a controller, anyway. I play lots of games on my PC, and rarely do I actually use the mouse & keyboard combo.


On the subject of humble bundles, I've been intrigued by some in the past, but have never taken the plunge. GOG and Steam sales keep me satiated enough. My PC backlog is crowded enough as it is, anyway.

a surprising amount of pc games are controller compatible these days. My brother uses an xbone controller and its just plug and play. Using a ps4 controller on pc requires jumping through some more hoops but I hear they are going to make a device for that soon(or you can just use DS4Windows but that's kind of janky right now)

Tomara:
I use a wired Xbox 360 controller all the time. If I really want the console experience, I'll hook my laptop up to the tv. However, my lovely laptop is a lovely piece shit - I can't play anything fancy. The Banner Saga, Evoland 2, that sort of stuff is pretty much its limit. (I bring shame to the PC Master Race and I love it.) That's one of the reasons I don't bother with bundles. More often than not there are games in there I can't play. The other reason is that I can't use the payment options (at the moment). Steam accepts iDEAL, so... yay!
