Finally an AAA unlock for me. I'll get it now, who knows if I'll still have money after XMas...
I'll slide my sleigh down the Monthly hill - one more month for me.
Tis' the season to be jolly but this early unlock aint. I decided to pause / cancel my subscription.
Should I save my money for the Steam Winter Sale? Or buy Yogscast? Or this Monthly? Choices, choices, I'll decide later.
Long Dark was bundled before and I ain't tempted by the others.
IGN, you've been naughty lately, not nice! I'm not tempted to subscribe.
Holidays are coming!

Can anyone elaborate on "NEW!!! Share your Humble Store discount with a friend!: When you share your discount, you and your friend will receive 10% off Humble Store purchases." please? How do I share that?

By giving them the link, which activates it on their account, I thought. But I haven't tried it and I might be wrong and I also wished they explained it better.

Go to your purchase page for the monthly bundle and you'll find a link you can share with your friend. Your friend then activates the discount on their account after using the link.

Sensualshakti always does - here are the complete tables for November and December.

The other games for January haven't been revealed yet; sensualshakti will update the table when they are. They're only visible the first Friday of the month (10:00AM PST), after the January bundle is no longer for sale. You have to decide whether or not without seeing the unrevealed games. That's the deal. If you're not comfortable with that, stick with the regular bundles. Games from the monthly often find their way into giveaways or can be found on Steamtrades, if you missed something, though your odds of winning vary and the price of games in the bundle will add up to more than the subscriber's price no-longer-available bundle.

Oh. That explains why. No one knows till after its not purchasable. Well assuming its current trend continues it wont ever be anything too good.

That depends on your valuation of the games, of course. Trying to be objective, I'm confident I'm getting $132 a year out of it for 12 months and $20 HW credit, in part because I can get that much or more back by selling the games, individually or as a whole month, on Steamtrades. Every month there's someone looking for the whole month because they paused it or didn't buy it based on the early unlocks and regrets it. With the annual price and wallet credit taking the effective value below $10, trading it for $12 or more if you didn't get anything seems like an acceptable failure scenario.

The flip side to that is that if you do miss a month, it can cost you to pick up something you wanted. I paused for November because I disliked the microtransaction garbage in the early unlock, but Shadow Tactics was near at the top of my wishlist and Silence is one I'm interested in, as well. As a result, I'm looking at $8-10 to get Shadow Tactics (which has never been bundled elsewhere or on sale for less than $15.99) and about another $1.50 for Silence, if I get them through Steamtrades. If I hadn't paused the bundle, I'd have gotten those along with Resident Evil 5 and Dead Rising 2 for trading or giveaways, plus the indie games, plus the microtransaction garbage (which I'm sure someone would have enjoyed, even if I just gave it away as part of a giveaway or puzzle). I'd have been better off not pausing, and November was pretty much a 'bad month' with only two games that really held my interest.

The biggest flaw with this is that game that are worth it can still end up in my backlog, so like a Steam sale, it's worth it, but it's hard to justify if it's more a matter of having them than playing them.

Well.. Only thing - it has been pretty OK for almost a year or more if Im not mistaken. Personally skipped some 3 months myself. But before that I got highly wishlisted games and when it unlocks theres usually something for everyone.
Quality of the bundle might be debatable, but even if other unlocks arent for you, if youre interested in early unlock, its still great deal. I love Quantum Break and Long Dark. At this point im intrigued what will be the other games. But Im already satisfied with what I got..

So I think its a healthy gamble buying monthly. +if somethings in the monthly that totally doesnt cut it for you - you have yourself a game to give away here. How about that ? :D

Monthlies are a 'mixed bag'. If you're into indies most of genres then its a no brainer, rarely theres an actual bad game - but for most people half (sometimes more) of the games won't be to your taste thus 'bad'. Every month when i look people's reactions theres one saying 'only this is worth it' while another saying the opposite. Taste.

You can't expect too many valuable games since the reveals this time are expensive but humble throws the oddball here and there; Value however doesn't say much, i mean, titles like cuphead, hyperlight drifter and such all cost half or less of triple A games and are very common ocurrence in monthlies- and we're talking top tier indie here, the likes that for many people surpass most big title out there.

Wow, they finally put up a game that I'm willing to consider worth the full $12. Quantum Break has me buying a monthly for the first time since... geez, August. I'd keep The Long Dark too, but a generous friend gave me that a while ago. I figure whatever I manage to trade the two other games for (hopefully some monthly gems I missed) will make this bundle worth it on its own.

You sure ? Hes asking about "1 year recurring plan" .. Not month to month.
If you pay those 100+ bucks for 12 months, dont you automatically get them all and you can change something only after the 12 months ?

Im not sure myself, but just checking, so someone doesnt misunderstand you :D

yes you have to pause 1 week before release otherwise you will get the bundle. if you pause i think you can still get it until release but i never did that. i skipped after i was 100% certain to not get the bundle. if you have to think about it do it after you are sure.

I'd buy it, but my ancient CPU is incompatible with Quantum Break, and I'm only interested in story mode for The Long Dark, so I guess, I'll get the game when it's complete (not if I'm lucky to win it first, of course).

Well sir you're out of date- it came out of early access (full launch) with the story mode on the previous sale (the one before fall).
So it is complete. Right now. Under 12.

I almost bought it on the previous sale but it was salty(low discount) compared to other wishlists and i had a tighter budget on fall sale... thankfully perhaps because i could have bought it a week or so before this monthlies reveal.

If my information is wrong, then the store page is out of date:

The first two episodes of WINTERMUTE represent approximately 15 hours of gameplay. Episodes Three to Five are included in the price of the game, and will be unlocked for free as they are released.

Also I'm not a sir.

This might mark the second time I'm interested in the early unlock. O.0 Still, not very enthusiastic to get the bundle: already have TLD and I'm getting a bit over HB what with the used codes and the whole "anyone who gives out the gift links is a reseller and we won't help them" attitude. There's been too many relatively recent Monthly games in regular bundles in T1 & BTA for any additional negative feelings to be okay.
Might still get this one what with Christmas and all, but since money is tight, I'll decide later.

I get a overall sense that people think humble have way more leeway deciding bundles whenever they want.
Perhaps the reveals are the only thing they have a finer control- everything else is dependent on deals cut way earlier. Perhaps some publisher/dev cut a open ended deal where humble decides on what bundle/when more or less a game will be inserted but i doubt those are many- if it happens at all.

I bet humble got 'heavy handed' with 3 good reveals because of last month's certainly lower sales (come on, h1z1?) - but i bet they can hardly juggle any monthlies contents based on how its own sale is going, simply because the deals were already cut prior. I doubt any dev/publisher would have it otherwise- thats how so frequently we see a steam discount just before a game shows on a bundle, since doing the otherway around they would loose money. And to do that they have to know the date it will debut on humble way ahed- the way steam orchestrate its 'on sale' have a queue (for the featured deals). You can't tell steam today to put your game as featured offer this week, or next...

Guys one question is worth just for "the long Dark" ? considerer only the story mode.
Because i'm not interesting in QB and Warhammer, and the price in %off on steam was pretty good with 66% (maybe repeat in this end year sale)

"worth it" is a very subjective notion, from what I've gathered the first two episodes of Wintermute are not great, both in term of writing and game design - contrast with commenters noting how the survival sandbox truly is something a bit special.

OTOH, the historical low was hit over a year ago, IIRC, while the game was still Early Access and had less content. Though I cannot say for sure, it could be one of those cases where you could be waiting a long time to see it drop that much again.

BTW the price of a Humble sub is equivalent to about a 60-70% cut on the current price, and you get more games on top of that, which you can then trade or gift.

Yes you right! thank you for answear, i was looking in youtube the episode 1 and look interesting, but was more a basic actives to you understand the game,i was thinking to just watch in youtube the "serie", sometimes i have more fun watching than playing ^^.
But you correct about the price, is equivalent a good %off in steam, and i will get more games after end month.

Don't forget that you can trade (or give on SteamGifts of course) Quantum Break and Warhammer if you don't want them. They have a decent value.
I only wanted Quantum Break. I sold the other two for about 9$, and who knows, the mystery games might be good or valuable too.

I wonder if I should buy this bundle now or wait for Christmas for possible bonus? in the store?

I'm not sure I fully understand your question. maybe you can elaborate a bit? :)

If you buy it now you pay $12 for those 3 unlocks + other games that will be revealed later.
To have a better discount on these games would mean for them to be discounted at 90% during the Winter Sale, which is very unlikely.
Of course, it largely depends on your region / currency / store prices.

Either way, I don't see any harm in waiting. The Steam sale starts on the 22nd and the discounts will not change during the sale, therefore you can decide from the first day if it's better for you to buy them from the store or if you save money by buying the bundle.
