Pay more than $15 to unlock a treasure trove of Sid Meier games
Looking for something to do this coming weekend? Have a look at the Humble Sid Meier Bundle. Many of you already have, as the collection of titles raked in $1.7 million during the first two days last week. What was already a good deal is even sweeter with the addition of two DLC packs for Civilization V and the 2004 reload of Sid Meier's Pirates. At present, it takes $15.01 to unlock the entire collection.
Life is about the little pleasures. You know, things like ice cream on a hot summer day, cold beer at a ball game, and scoring big with the Humble Bundles. Yep, that sweet program that allows you to donate to charity (or developers) whatever amount you wish in exchange for some sweet games. The latest Humble Jumbo Bundle consists of Natural Selection 2, Sanctum 2, and Magicka with two packs of DLC, but as always, there's potentially more.
Score great deals and good will whenever the urge strikes
Here's a dose of awesome to start off your work week. The good hearted folks behind the popular Humble Bundle launched the Humble Store today. What is the Humble Store, you ask? It's a virtual market with new, fixed-priced titles arriving each day. Similar to the Humble Bundles you may have participated in, part of the proceeds goes to charity -- in this case, ten percent to select charities including the American Red Cross, Child's Play, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Warner Bros. and the Humble Bundle have teamed up to create the Humble WB Games Bundle. Bruce Wayne is the leading contributor with a $2,100 purchase price, which seems a little lackluster considering his $6.5 billion net worth. Fortunately, DonCoreLeon and SomeNorwegian are doing their best to pull up the top contributions with $200 and $75 donated respectively.
The pay-what-you-want model is back, this time with six independently developed cross-platform games. For as little as a one dollar donation, you get a Steam product key in addition to DRM-free direct downloads to the complete story of Trine 2, Mark of the Ninja, Eets Munchies and Brütal Legend. If you pay more than the average price (currently at $4.36), you can get access to FTL: Faster Than Light and FEZ.
Contribute to the Humble Origin Bundle for a bushel of hit games
The Humble Bundles are extremely popular, offering a massive selection of hot indie games or esteemed classics for a price you just can't beat. What's more, the entire project is about raising money for charity. The most recent Humble Origin Bundle managed to raise a whopping $5 million, reaching more than one million people. Now that's some serious giving.
EA has joined forces with the Humble Bundle crew to offer up an epic bundle of games including several Triple-A titles. This time EA is being a good guy and is giving its share of the proceeds to charitable organizations that include the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, and San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
Donate what you want for great games that include Saints Row: The Third and more
The pay-what-you-want Humble Bundle deal is back and this time around some of developer Deep Silver's great games are up to bat. If you're unfamiliar with the program, the Humble Bundle allows you to donate your cash to either the game developer, charity (Childs Play and American Red Cross), or both.
This week’s Humble Bundle features games that are compatible with Android, Windows, Linux, and OSX. If you're unfamiliar with Humble Bundles, they essentially ask you what you'd like to pay for the package. Games included in the Humble Bundle this week are Aquaria, Fractal, Organ Trail: Director’s Cut, Stealth Bastard Deluxe, and Pulse* (Android Exclusive) which you can all get for as little as one dollar though you can of course donate more.
