Name your own price for a THQ game bundle
I paid $7 for the bundle and got Saints Row free. I earmarked the additional money for charity. What a deal!
Got plans this weekend? Cancel 'em.
The Humble Bundle folks have put together what is arguably the best game bundle ever. It's called the Humble THQ Bundle, and it comes with six top-rated action/strategy games -- plus a seventh if you beat the average purchase price.
I'm going to start with that bonus game first, because it really kind of defines the whole bundle. It's Saints Row: The Third, which scored an 8.5 on GameSpot when it debuted just one year ago. Price if purchased from Steam: $39.99. Average bundle price (at this writing) you need to beat to get the game: $5.70.
So, yeah, if you pay at least $5.71, you'll get Saints Row: The Third, plus a seriously impressive roster of other titles:
•Company of Heroes
•Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
•Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor
•Red Faction: Armageddon
•A smattering of game soundtracks, for those who are into that kind of thing.
As you can see from clicking through to their reviews, every single one of these games scored at least an 8.0, the exception being the 6.0-rated Tales of Valor expansion for Company of Heroes.
Even so, there's an embarrassment of gaming riches to be had in this bundle, and the Humble bundlers continue to do good works by letting you divvy up your payment among charities, the game developers, and themselves -- however you want to mix it up.
Most game bundles include indie titles that most folks have never heard of. There's nothing wrong with that -- lots of this indie games are gems -- but it's nice to see a bundle with some big names. If you're a gamer, this is too good to pass up. Check out the overview video below.
