Ready for your monthly infusion of Turok & Zachtronics?

View Results
[Recurring subscription] For me, this is a great month. Pausing my subscription is a thought that doesn’t come to mind when I see these games.
[New subscription] Now that’s what I call a real motivation to stay at home! Thank you, IGN!
[Maybe subscribe] I’m interested in a few of these titles, but that’s it. It’s time to decide if I am really willing to pay that much money in order to own them.
[Pause] Damn, I’m normally not one to complain about Humble Choice / Monthly games, but the quality really dropped lately.
[Cancelling] My wallet is in lockdown, just like me.
[Non-subscriber, will not buy] The Hitman Standard DLC trap ain't gonna catch me, Squeenix!

This one will be passed...

I think I am going to probably skip this, since the only two games that are interesting to me are Police II and Raiden V, I already own hitman 2 gold and none of the others interest me.

But that mystery game has be intrigued so maybe I will just buy it and then maybe I can always find uses for the other games.

Wrong, I'm paying for month-to-month subscription (classic plan) myself, and I've never seen the offer of mystery game, not on the main page, not on the subscription section, so I guess not everyone will get the mystery game... I think OwieczkaDollyv21 is right, and some regions won't be getting a bonus mystery game, I've already seen it in the past with at least two monthly bundles that had 1 game less because of the region I live in! More freakin' reason to skip this month...

It's a good bundle but seems niche when reading comments here. I don't think anyone has mentioned that Driftland The Magic Revival is a decent Majesty 2-like that I've been waiting for a sale or bundle and here it is. TWO Zach games! Opus Magnum was an amazing fun puzzler so I'm looking forward to Molek. Ofc, Gris - that I'm not interested in -, This is the Police 2 and Bard's Tale IV are also well-known names. Personally I already have Hitman 2 Gold but I still got it and split for the other games.

tl;dr - It's a good bundle but as usual not for everyone's taste.

If you're looking for nuanced, reasonable analysis of a Humble monthly, where people realize that "I personally don't like this" is not the same as "this sucks"...

Driftland is ... I mean I don't even like Majesty 2? Or I didn't when it came out.
Wasn't super pleased by Driftland but I'm very open to hearing your take.

It's really hard to find a good indirect control strategy game.
Or even indirect control city buildery games that don't have super stupid citizen AI.

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Although it's "indirect control" like Majesty 2, no unit will ever say "I'm not travelling 50km just for 10 gold" so it might as well be a queue system. The upside is there are no citizens outside of combat units which simplify things so you don't have to worry about stupid AI.

I played through the first campaign of four and it was average, normal difficulty was fairly easy. The tooltip on harder difficulty seems to mirror Civilization/Stellaris games difficulty where enemies would get more resources at a faster rate instead of being smarter. Campaign is great in that it gives you different victory conditions and you're forced to expand differently - focus on different resources or build an army to rush the enemy castle - so you don't fall into the rhythm of winning the same way. There is a MP mode which I cannot comment on, as well as a skirmish set your own rules mode for single player game.

There is diplomacy but it has not been very important thus far in the first campaign, probably more for skirmish single games.

It plays out similar to Northgard or Civ games I'd say. Driftland doesn't have a "wow" factor but it's solid city building with some magic spells thrown in during combat. I'd recommend it to city building lovers, might be a bit bland if you aren't.

Overall I'm having fun in Campaign :)

Fair enough, I get that. I find it amusing to dabble in a bit of trading every now and then, especially these slow days. In any case, buying from grey market sites is as quick as any storefront, if you just want the game.

standard edition have 7 locations. There is a free hitman 2 which gives 1 location free to everyone.

Then there is gold edition which contains standard edition and both expansion.

I think this may be helpful to some:

Hey, I want the full Hitman 2 experience, now that I own it thanks to this bundle

buy this after redeeming the humble key: https://store.steampowered.com/app/957690/HITMAN2__Expansion_Pass/ btw it's currenty on sale

Hey, I want the season 1 campaign in hitman 2, but I don't own Hitman 2016

you can either buy the goty legacy pack: https://store.steampowered.com/app/960831/HITMAN__GOTY_Legacy_Pack/ or buy Hitman 2016 or Hitman 2016 GOTY and keep reading

Hey, I want the season 1 campaign in hitman 2, and I already own Hitman 2016 vanilla

just launch hitman 2, and season 1 will redeem automatically

Hey, I want the season 1 campaign and the 2016 GOTY stuff in hitman 2, and I already own Hitman 2016 GOTY

just launch hitman 2, and season 1 and the 2016 GOTY campaign will redeem automatically

Hey, I want the season 1 campaign in hitman 2, and I already own Hitman 2016 but not the GOTY edition

just launch hitman 2 to get season 1 in, and buy the legacy GOTY upgrade: https://store.steampowered.com/app/960832/HITMAN__GOTY_Legacy_Pack_Upgrade/

Hey, I don't want hitman 2, but I own some Hitman 2016 edition, and I want to play in the new engine

Just launch the free edition steam://run/863550/ and the 2016 content will redeem in there

Hey, I paused this month, but I want to buy the whole Hitman 2 experience on steam

Buy this https://store.steampowered.com/sub/272966/ and you are set. Get season 1 as described above

If you are not sure what version of Hitman 2016 you have, here is the GOTY sub: https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/4854/HITMAN__Game_of_The_Year_Edition/

even after all this mess, and owning everything, you may find DLC that does not appear as owned. For example, I own Vanilla, Season pass, and the GOTY 2016 content that redeemed automatically, and the silver to gold package and the GOTY upgrade do not show as owned, but I own the content. Those packages are there just for upgrades.

collectors may find going the 2016 route better, to get a +1 in the library, and also because some believe 2016 is better in the old engine/prefer to play with the old bugs
Hope it helps

This is way more useful than any of the information provided in the Steam Page. Thank you very much <3 <3

PS: I already had HITMAN GOTY edition and I was missing Patient Zero to get the full HITMAN 2016 experience. I bought it through HITMAN 2 GOTY Legacy Pack Upgrade as you advised but I would like to know out of curiosity if I'll be able to play Patient Zero on the HITMAN 2016 engine or just in HITMAN 2 engine?

Comment has been collapsed.

You are welcome.
The legacy upgrade is only for Hitman 2, I am afraid, but check this out:
As far as the current steam listing goes, 2016 GOTY does include Patient Zero: https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/4854/HITMAN__Game_of_The_Year_Edition/
So if you don't have it listed, you may not have 2016 GOTY to begin with.
You can refund the hitman 2 legacy upgrade, buy what you are missing from the 2016 GOTY package, and then launch hitman 2 to get everything redeemed there, if you really need that content on both games.
I am not sure what is cheaper. It depends in what you are missing from that link.
Hope it helps.

edit: I think I am going to add this situation to the post. thank you

You're right, I thought I had HITMAN GOTY but in fact I just have vanilla HITMAN. Thanks for pointing that out. I don't mind just being able to play PZ on HITMAN 2 and in fact it's actually cheaper to pay for the GOTY Upgrade for HITMAN 2 (which ended up being 1,99 €) than buying the rest of the HITMAN 2016 GOTY Bundle (that includes PZ and it costs 3,66 € to upgrade). Thank you for the feedback <3

Hitman, May 2019 I paid:

$6.60

May 29, 2019
Hitman: Codename 47
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
Hitman: Blood Money
Hitman Absolution
Hitman Contracts
$7.67

$14.27 and I thought it was a decent deal. Now, do I want to use my HB key to get the rest of the DLC? Seems like a waste...

I didn't get it from this site actually, plus it wasn't a key that they send me. It was a HB gift link.

If you ask me they should provide me a new key. At least that is what makes sense to me. Looks like i will try and see.

(If i ask the support, they can't block the current key before giving me a new one, right?)
