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, you’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 don’t even know which poll option I should pick.

I has skipped 3 months in a row and so sad that this happens right after I paid them a full 12 months in advance.

I want Fae Tactics and Iron Danger. I am ok to get Tropico 6 - El Prez Edition,Sunless Sea,Sunless Skies,Autonauts,Shadows: Awakening,Basement.
Should I go find and bought this 2 games in cheap market or I should get this bundle for $8.00? Now is $12.00 then I got coupon when I pause so that $4.00 can use right to make it $8.00?

Any opinion on this?

ITT: People complaining about People complaining about his bundle.

I can give many reasons for this bundle to be a bad one but will list a few:

  1. Too many people have too many games from previous bundles.
  2. Games quality compared to the price. I mean, I remember getting both Alan Wake games for $1 and that was a steal!
  3. DLC fest games included in the bundle.
    -> Look at these and previous "choice" games. Majority of them have one of more DLCs which are NOT included.
  4. Previously "Free" games included in the bundles. This one has 2 games which were free previously.
  5. Games, which currently are or were recently available in other "cheaper" bundles
  6. Region locks (Why the fuck would I receive a region locked key if I paid the same price as everyone else? Though most the publishers fault)
  7. (Personal Feeling) Fucking over the classic plan subscribers (new premium is available for $8 per month for 6/12 months).
    Edit: What do we (classic subscribers) get for being loyal? A dick in the mouth. Fucking Cartman is right:
  8. Banning people for trading/giveaways

I think humble is dying slowly and it'll be a sad day but Fanatical is the current bundle king.

Fanatical is the current bundle king.

Nah. I bought just four bundles from Fanatical, in 2020.
I bought all of Choice in 2020 and 19 additional bundles (granted, most of them were just tier 1. This used to be much better).
Not to mention further purchases thanks to the 20% discount.
Fanatical isn't even close.

I too have purchased more Humble Monthlies this year than bundles from Fanatical, even including pick & mix deals. Give them two years, and maybe they'll come around ;) That's how long it took for me of buying bundles before I ended up buying more from Humble than Fanatical.

You know what else has come around? Happy cake day!

Fanatical is the current bundle king.

You should go read the comments on the recent Fanatical bundle threads. If they are the king, their subjects are pretty unhappy!

again just another lot of re bundled games
Indie Oldies is more like it.
For the last few years, I don't recall any exceptional bundle from Fanatical.

*

The real issue, of course, is that the PC game market is WAY over-saturated with bundles. This is to be expected, since the number of bundles is so much higher than the number of quality games. Eventually, bundle sites simply run out of top-quality games to include in bundles. And that's where we are. It's not really possible for today's bundles to compete with past bundles. The world has changed.

But... acknowledging this is not nearly as much fun as ranting!

Whiny cheap-skates are also to blame, IMHO. People actually bitch when something is "only" 90% off anymore.

I don't work for Humble so I can't be 100% certain, but I'm pretty sure that the charity aspect of their operation acts as a way for publishers to contribute their keys as in-kind donations for tax deductions. The current crop of publishers aren't going to walk away from this kind of partnership, but they have figured out how to maximise their returns through DLC-heavy headliners etc. The days of ridiculous value are long gone, but there's no reason to believe that Choice's quality is declining compared to a year ago. It's still much better value than the other bundlers and will remain so, but it's hard to compete with backlogs full of amazing games we'd already gotten for cheap and haven't had time for, and the big-publisher headliners that would make a difference there are always going to be hit-and-miss.

fanatical sells full price games as star deal for at least $20 or for $5 as mystery game (if you are very lucky). they would have a long way to go to sell bundles like the humble monthlies or humble choices for this price

Ok, weird thing, my key (Serbia) was activated in a RU/CIS region. And its SubID 309466 so that means it should be a ROW key. Why do they get RU/CIS keys but can use ROW keys?

2 weeks ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Each publisher defines their own regions for a package. Some prefer splitting the packages between separate regions (one for RU/CIS, one for LATAM etc) and others just do a mix of everything.
For Tropico 6, they decided to not include Serbia in the RU/CIS package, but neither is it included in the EU package (with other games, it's usually included in one of these two types of packages). So the only thing possible for you guys is to receive a ROW key 🙃
Hence you get 309466, which is a region-free key and can be activated anywhere.
All other countries that are included in the RU/CIS region receive indeed a RU/CIS locked key, namely https://steamdb.info/sub/309479/

Just a fact: Most of the latam keys can be activated in Ecuador but for a reason, Void Bastards, Automachef, and Genesis Alpha One LATAM keys can´t be activated in Ecuador XD

Firstly make sure you got the email says "Get Humble Classic for $6 USD!" or check in the Humble Coupons says "$6 off Humble Choice", if you got that when you unpausing it will automatically cut the price from $12 to $6, I'm in Month-to-Month classic plan. Coupons expires October 26 at 9:59am PDT. I will be paying $12 next month if i continue the subscription. If you want to unpause make sure you only pay $6 before click the PAY NOW button.

You wouldn't have gotten that offer if you weren't eligible. It will stack the 6 months on top of your current sub though, just bear that in mind. Check for any clauses about pausing as well.
