Tried Lovecraft's Untold Stories and it's a pretty cool 2d pixel Resident Evil-like game.
But I got pretty far and there was no way to save and I looked it up and the developer is like "this is a rogue-like so there is no saving" and the levels take 2-4 hours.

Yeah, talk about a developer that doesn't understand how people could have lives. Oh well.

Also I'm officially tired of Lovecraft games at this point.

New Humble Choice Bundle is out.
If you have Control it's pretty boring. A lot of not amazingly reviewed tiny indie games + X-com Chimera Squad + Hotshots Racing + Elex + Control.

I did want Hotshots Racing and wouldn't mind Elex and Chimera Squad so I picked it up but otherwise it's a boring month.

Sorry man, I took the Steam version of control in case for some reason in the future I don't have Epic Launcher installed anymore because Epic sucks and my game library on Steam feels more permanent.

Huh, I thought this was the best one there's been for awhile now.
Even outside the 'headliners', cyberhook, wildfire and hotshot racing had previously been on my radar and all look worth a play, and although I've never heard of tha peaky blinders game, it looks like a desperados knock off which might be fun. Also a dumb WWE game :idont

Hmmm, I'll have to try out Cyberhook and Wildfire. Both looked ok, but didn't stand out when looking at the trailers and reviews.

Is Control the Ultimate Edition?

Nah, which sucks, but it is what it is.

Actually I booted up steam and Control is showing up as the Ultimate Edition? :o

Pretty good get for Humble in that case. I wonder if I can transfer my save from the epic store version. Gonna check.

Nevermind?

It shows up as Control Ultimate Edition but doesn't include either DLC.

I tried copying over my saves from epic and it says "your save has DLC, can't load until you buy DLC"

Oh well

There's a note on the page that some of the keys will activate as Ultimate Edition but it won't be.

Mine activated as just the base game for whatever that's worth.

If it wasn't for Rock of Ages, which I didn't even realize exists, and Remothered because I'm always up for RE knockoffs I might've passed. I love Shenmue I & II, but I never want to play III, even for free. Jank looks too strong for me.

You can pick an EGS or Steam code.

Control was like this too last month. Probably see one a month EGS/Steam at this rate.

I kinda wanted Rock of Ages but at a glance pretty weak month.

PAY $1 TO UNLOCK!
 Door Kickers: Action Squad

PAY MORE THAN THE AVERAGE OF $8 TO ALSO UNLOCK!
 Ultimate Chicken Horse
 Nine Parchments
 20XX

PAY $10 OR MORE TO ALSO UNLOCK!
 Wargroove
 Lethal League Blaze
 biped

If you like Advance Wars, Wargroove is effectively half off in this bundle and you get six other games. I plan on playing some of this Door Kickers spin-off for the upcoming Digital Buffet II to be a bit timely. (Haven't played the rest, though I guess I could also play the other two games I already have from this.)

And if you want some LEGO games they're also running a bundle with a bunch of the Marvel/DC stuff for $10, with the Ninjago game for $1: https://www.humblebundle.com/games/lego-built-to-bundle

An update on this after an hour of playing it, Door Kickers is easily worth the dollar imo. Though admittingly, you kill a lot of innocent people without a trial. :cop

I missed Metro Exodus before it left Game Pass and Levelhead is a really well reviewed 2d platformer, also Family Man is that one Harvest Moon meets Mafia game about running a farm and hiding mafia bodies in it while running from the mob.

The rest seem mixed. I tried Darksiders Genesis on Game Pass and thought it was kinda boring but I guess if I ever want to finish the series I'll have it on steam. Hellpoint is another Souls-like but impressions were it was just an average one. I think Mortal Shell is the only souls ripoff that's actually been somewhat well reviewed.

It’s worth noting that Metro Exodus will also upgrade to the enhanced edition for free.

If this was cheaper it'd be pretty decent. Or if it had Little Nightmares 2.

I thought Code Vein was terrible from trying it on Game Pass, so $20 lollll

If you don't care about Civ, the big games are weak this month assuming you've played Stubbs back in the day.


But Bork's been slinging Panzer Paladin ($19.99) for a while and I really liked the Ikenfell ($19.99) demo and have been holding off waiting for it to be in a bundle, so this works for me. Will browse through the rest of the indie games to see if there are other hits in there.

Also goes to show that any game published by Humble Games will be in a bundle of theirs within a year, so just wait if you don't need to day 1.

Also Civ 6 Platinum is normally like $150 with all DLCs (on sale now 75% off and still $40), so money-wise that's pretty good. I think this month is ok.

Also I just noticed there's a bundle on humble bundle for every Guilty Gear game ever (GG1, GGXX #Reload, GGXX Accent Core w/rollback, GG Isuka the sidescroller beat-em up, GG 3rd strategy game, GG Xrd Sign, GG Xrd Rev) for $10 on PC. Pretty good deal.

I'm think I'm gonna grab it just to get going under 5 dollars off- I really like the premise of demonic startups/failed startups sinking below the earth and becoming horrible dungeons filled with monsters. Getting other stufff like civ 6 seems like a nice bonus

New Humble Bundle is Yakuza 3 (Game Pass), Surge 2 (Game Pass), Dirt 5 (Game Pass) as the big three and Paradise Killer as the big Indie.

If I hadn't bought Paradise Killer last Steam sale I would've bit, but I did and I've beat Y3, don't like Surge and have Dirt 5 on PS5 & Game Pass so this is the first month I'm gonna skip for Humble.

I'm guessing the next few months will be Y4, Y5, Y6. I haven't finished any of those and I might not get to them for a while so I'll probably bite on those.

It's worth it just to save an extra $2 on Paradise Killer.

After at least mildly liking every month since humble sub started, this is the second month in a row that might be a miss for me personally:




Does anyone who wants Bloodstained still not own it at this point??

Will have to look up the rest and see if there's any indie gems in there I don't have. Also I forgot to pause last month so ended up buying it all anyways. Have an extra Paradise Killer key if anyone wants.

Ok, this month's alright. As someone who only cares about single player and not survival crafting (so many humble bundle games each month are multiplayer or survival & crafting), Superliminal is cool and I've had it on my wish list, Blue Fire is an awesome looking 3d indie action platformer I was interested in, Encodya is a neat robo point n' click, and while I couldn't really get into Carto or Nowhere Prophet on Game Pass in the short bursts I tried them, they both have good reviews so maybe I'll give them another chance.

Also Last Oasis not being a Beyond Oasis sequel is depressing  :'(
