Humble THQ Bundle

Post by Twilight_Warrior »

Look me in the eyes and tell me that THQ are not the most awesome large publisher out there.

In the midst of a financial crisis they make one last ditch attempt to make money as well as doing a favor for charity.

Anyway for next to nothing you can get some pretty sweet games here, as well as their soundtracks. Highly recommended.

Darksiders
Metro 2033
Red Faction: Armageddon
Company of Heroes
CoH: Opposing Fronts
CoH: Tales of Valor

If you pay over the average (currently around $6):
Saints Row The Third

Yep. Saw the e-mail update and was like "oh they can't be serious." But they are.

Already bought it. Was unimpressed by Darksiders (The action is like big and explodey and cool and all, but when combat is literally composed of "press LMB to smash things" and you don't need to ever do anything else, its a little bland. Also it crashed on my computer after a little while of playing so I just dropped it in favor of Company of Heroes, which is a blast. I managed to lose a multiplayer match quite handily after beating the first few campaign missions.

Haven't tried any of the other games yet though.

I bought it just for Saints Row 3. I have yet to install it but I'm rather excited.

I bought this (mainly for Saints Row), but Red Faction Armageddon isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Much less fun stuff to do (compared to Guerrilla), but its not an awful game. The soundtrack for Saints Row the Third is also pretty good. I haven't listened to the others enough to have an opinion.

Bought it just for the sake of CoH. Love this game. It has some great mods too.
