Offtopic: Humble THQ Bundle
This post isn’t really connected to my blog, but I felt the need to put this out there, if somebody might be interested.
There’s only 1 day and 14 hours left before the offer ends. An offer to get 9 world-level gaming titles by THQ for $5.68 (or whatever the average will be, when you see this)! The offered games are the following: Saints Row: The Third, Titan Quest, Darksiders, Company of Heroes, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor, Red Faction: Armageddon (and its mission pack, Path to War), and Metro 2033. Also, if you don’t want to get these for the average price, you can pay as little as $1 for everything except Warhammer 40,000, Saints Row 3 and Titan Quest. A really nice offer, I must say, especially because you get to choose how the money is distributed – between THQ, Charity and the Humble Bundle franchise. If you want, you can even give all the money to one of these.
This was a desperate move from THQ, who are on the verge of bankruptcy. At the same time, it has harmed the Humble Bundle franchise, who have always been supporting indie developers, and offering games from a large publisher is completely against their previous policies. However, for normal people, I believe this shouldn’t matter, since you can just decide to give everything to charity. So if you want to get your hands on this bundle, act switftly, as there’s less than 2 more days left!
