Is it Ok that this Ok-tober bundle is not as Ok as the previous months?

View Results
[Happy] People complain way too much. Back in the day, youโ€™d pay $12 / $19 for a really good game in a blink of an eye and now you get at least 3 amazing ones for that price, plus some extras.
[Subscribed & don't even care anymore] It's okay for this bundle not to be okay, I gave up on Humble long ago. I just sit here and pay once a month.
[Insulted by Tropico] Come on, Tropico 6, the base game, after a similarly insulting Tropico bundle that had 4 & 5 with some DLC, no nice Complete packages, and was missing 6 entirely?
[Offended by Shadows Awakening] Shadows Awakening right after it was in Fanatical? You must be joking!
[Underwhelmed by Daedalic] Daedalic games are regularly given out cheap or free on Lootboy, plus it's one of the few publishers likely to do 90% sales. And HB itself even had them bundled just two months ago!
[Sunk at Sea] They *really* could have included the four years old DLC for the already-Humblebundled Sunless Sea?
[Uncertain about all of this] I'm Uncertain if there's a single Steam user who didn't claim The Uncertain when it was free on the Steam Store.
[Bleat at Duty] I Goat you IGN for featuring games that were redeemable for free on Steam 6 months ago. I did my Duty to activate it back then.
[True Potato Ending] The real choice is which of these choices is the most upsetting. I donโ€™t even know which poll option I should pick.

A pretty damn good Tropico iteration. It is not as great as 4 was, but the new engine has some good possibilities, and the building selection and different options make it one of the most fun Tropico games to play. The monuments themselves are just plain ridiculous. :D

If people are buying one month standalone, what can I say. It's just plain stupid. Not only it's cheaper that way, You can always give the leftover games away or sell them and You will even earn more money than the bundle itself. So saying bs like "no way someone is going to pay 20$ for that" doesn't even make sense.

Your statements don't make any sense. You even agree that it is plain stupid to buy all games for 20$, default Humble Choice price for everyone, and still say some nonsense regarding resale of games and profiting from that.

Stop acting like a little child.
First, You said someone. And I am someone too. So don't be mad that I replied. Not my fault people weren't smart enough to get Classic Plan. It's not even that much. You pay twice of standard price of AAA game to get like 150 of them. If somebody doesn't want that, it's their only fault.
Second, my statement is pretty much smarter than Yours. You are just salty.
Third, thousands of people are reselling the games. Just look at how many of them are giving it for free. So another half, that is probably bigger, is selling it. Or keeping.

Also no, it's not price for everyone. It's price for naive people who didn't buy Classic Plan. Sorry, no sorry for those people. They would get more profit buying annual sub that buy few months without Classic Plan. And with reselling... You even actually earn money by buying the subscription.

It honestly speaking, depends. This is the first time I ever hear about Sunless Skies. Tropico 6 indeed looks interesting, but it is extremely niche product that I suppose noone is going to purchase for 20$ alone.

I paid full price for both Basement and Sunless Skies.

I really have no idea where you got your information from. The all-time peak active players for Tropico 6 came soon after its release. And it is higher than the peaks for Tropico 3, 4 and 5.
So people bought it full price, they played it and it was a greater success than the previous entries. You really shouldn't make such statements if all you have is your gut feeling.

Tropico isn't a RTS ...

1 month ago

Comment has been collapsed.

Indeed it isn't, my bad. I just wanted to emphasize the fact that people no longer tend to play strategy games overall as much as they did ~10-15 years ago.

Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

This also isn't true. It's true for the specific RTS subgenre, but not for the strategy genre in general.

I get that you aren't a strategy gamer and don't seem to have any among your friends either. So by your impression this might be true, but that's all.
The facts are different though, I already told you that Tropico 6 was (much) more successful than Tropico 3,4 or 5. Paradox Interactive is so successful that they keep buying one studio after another. And there are so many more examples of strategy games doing better than ever. It just isn't about Command & Conquer anymore. Though even Age of Empires is returning from the dead.

Comment has been collapsed.

This whole chat started because I stated that Tropico in particular or any other strategy game can't interest majority of people.

And no, this is true. I really like the concept of strategy games and I even preordered Civilization VI on Switch, but looking at all those strategy games that are getting released it can be easily noticed that their quality is only getting improved in graphics. Civilization V was 10x times more content-rich and interesting and same with any other series.

It is obvious that newly released strategy games are all just DLCfests and I bet that Tropico isn't an exception

And once again you let your impressions lead you to false conclusions.
Civ V might have been the better game than Civ VI, but VI is the more successful game. Greater revenue, more owners and players. So much about strategy having less appeal to people these days, when a worse game is doing even better.

And regarding the bundle: While Tropico might not be the strongest leading title ever, the bundle has greater issues than that.

Hopefully the next bundle will be better.
Absolutely no reason to buy this...for anyone
Poor choice of games.... Humble is just IGNorant novadays to what the real playesr want.
Poor timing, considering it's autumn and people will spend (even?) more time indoors, better games would sell a lot better.
You still think this worth it? With these jokes-for games?

Casual games maybe would enjoy this bundle, but not the hardcore, pro gamers who just deserve better.
Autonauts... looks like a pile of trash, after caught on fire, burned up, then caught on fire again.
Kool kids maybe play that minecraft ripoff, but as I previously said, pro gamers deserve better.
Episodec game... that was free... in a monthly?
Despicable, jsut the whole bundle.
And you still spent time trying to convince people that they are in the wrong? Who do you think you are?
You're just a simple user on this site, nothing special. So better take my advice and read the first letter of every row. >:(

The Uncertain and Autonauts are definitely casual, Tropico series is generally considered casual, and the Sunless series is also casual AND could easily be played on Android devices...

Of all the games in this bundle, the only games that really couldn't be considered casual are Iron Danger and Goat of Duty, maybe Fae Tactics.

But are those games worth it for 20$? You see, it's not about games in this choice being bad, it is just price for the whole bundle that is ridiculous with all those region locks.

They seem to be worth about $200. But regardless, is there really a valid argument for suggesting they aren't worth a buck seventy five each?

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

If we are talking about "valid arguments", when why do people from developing countries have to pay the same 20$ as developed ones and moreover get region lock? You can put even 2 million price tag on a trash(I do not imply that these games are even nearly related to that), but do you think many people will buy that?

It's literally the same reason why debate among gamers started regarding standard game price rise from 60 euro to 70. Do you think there is no valid reason to say that it is nearly impossible for person from Eastern Europe to buy that?

Everything is extremely subjective and depends on ones current conditions. I can't imagine anyone in my country pay 4 hour work salary in order to play some indies and another strategy game.

The recent promo? From what I've read, you shouldn't pause a month if you want to keep the 8 dollars price.

"Price locked in for 6 months, unless subscription is cancelled or paused"

Not sure what is the deal with the 2 dollars off though, I never had this happened to me when pausing a month. But knowing HB my guess would be 2 dollars off regular price.

As I said in leaks thread, It's hit or miss, depending on whatever you purchased earlear bundles or not. It looks good for me. Tropico 6, Iron Danger, Suicide of Rachel Foster, Shadows Awakening, Fae Tactics are all in my wishlist. (I skipped Daedalic and Killer bundles, as the former was too expensive and I owed half of later because of Torchlight I & II Pack on Stardeal a month earlier (still salty about it)). The Sunless bundle looks interesting too. Previously free Goat of Duty and The Uncertain is a major downside though. What a waste for 11th and 12th choice. The rest is meh tier for me, I take it as a filler.
