I can't wait to start yoggin'. Blind (day 1) buy!
Who needs an advent calendar when you can have a bundle calendar? Buy.
I'm in for the yearly charity donation. The games are just a bonus.
I'll wait and see, maybe gonna purchase after some nice reveals / unlocks.
Got enough of those games already, it's just the yearly mega-rebundle.
Them titles ain't my cup of tea.
Too expensive, no matter how many nice games it may contain.
Streams only for me, no buying.
I hope it's not F2P DLCs again. Oh wait it is.
It's an extra $5 each year, what gives?
Not this again... I hate Christmas / bundles / charity / casters / everything & everyone. <Grinch option>

Let him [or her] who is without sin cast the first YOGS!

somebody has added it as "Dungeon of the Endless - Crystal Pack":
https://isthereanydeal.com/specials/#/filter:id/3390;/options:pending

they have entry also for "Dungeon of the Endless - Crystal Edition": https://isthereanydeal.com/#/page:game/info?plain=dungeonofendlesscrystaledition

If Crystal Pack and Crystal Editon are same thing, they should be informed to merge them but it's probably requested already among 100's of others: https://isthereanydeal.com/dots/

Nonetheless, it is also a package of 4 items... so I guess it still wouldn't make "Dungeon of the Endless" basegame count as bundled at ITAD as they see it as separate item: https://isthereanydeal.com/#/page:game/info?plain=dungeonofendless But maybe they can make it appear as part of the package above somehow: they have issue tracker where you can report about these things: https://bitbucket.org/tfedor/isthereanydeal.com/issues


Also
Rust has been in 5 bundles previously, not just 3: https://barter.vg/i/405/
Garry's Mod been bundled 4 times before: https://barter.vg/i/40/

The first Yogscast bundle was in 2013: https://barter.vg/bundle/2302/

  • Some beta keys
  • Some F2P packs/badges/in-game rewards
  • Some DLCs
  • 2-3 enticing games
  • Several bundled games
  • Some multiplayer only games
  • December 31st - Happy New Year! See you next year.

Probably. It wouldn't be a first. Also judging from the latest Codemasters bundle where half of the BTA tier was comprised of coupons and DLCs for not included games I'm afraid we'll start seeing this more in future bundles.

2 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Hah, yeah most likely. Though to be fair, that CM bundle was solid enough on it's own (and even with reveals to come) that the coupons didn't come across like empty stuffing masquerading as content to me. It felt more "oh, and here's something extra" in the way that sort of inclusion should feel

I've just got this vivid memory from last year. Things were already increasingly dismal as the reveals whimpered on, and on one of the very last days, I saw "Bohemian Killing" and figured at least they're actually trying to end on a high note---before noticing it was the soundtrack. (-_-)

2 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Yep. Same... That Bohemian Killing soundtrack shit they pulled was ridiculous. I didn't get the bundle, and I was more and more glad I didn't as more games were revealed. Games that were bundled several times over, VR game(s)... and just not particularly enticing stuff. And then a code for a freaking soundtrack that you could only use if you went out and bought the game on its own. It's not even as if HB had bundled it in another bundle recently. Just... ballsy.

Happy to finally get it in the Nemesis Bundle 4.

100% goes to charity of my choice, so that's good. I can give what I'd normally give anyway, and get free games as a bonus.

On the down-side, I probably already have almost all of those games, and a bunch are probably F2P junk. Soooo.... we'll wait and see :)

One question - why is 100% charity an important thing, when every single bundle's price can be 100% set to be donated to charity? Or am I missing something?

That would have to be an active choice though and at least for me to change the ratio would make me feel a bit uncharitable if that makes any sense.

Not every Humble Bundle allows giving to a charity of your own choice. And I give 100% to charity every time I buy a bundle from them, but not everyone else does. :)

I'm also pretty sure that some bundles have railroaded you into donating only to the featured charity if you were to go the charity route for that bundle. I remember it specifically in connection to the Call of Duty charity (it's called something like that) that provides games and other assistance for army veterans.

It's more of Humble's way of saying that they won't take a cut at all by default. There's not even the possibility that they or the devs or anybody but charity gets any of the money. I'm sure there are a lot of people out of the tens/hundreds of thousands who buy Humble Bundles who just go with the preset distribution of money and can't be bothered to manually assign the portion to charity/devs/Humble.

Unless it gets close to the 150k limit--also, some of these mega-bundles have certain games that exhaust their copies sooner than others, so I wouldn't wait if you're fairly confident you might buy it later

But is it just these few games which are limited to 150 000 and we know it's 150 000 for them and no less or is 150 000 for the whole bundle and there could be less for some games? And where-from do 150 000 come in the first place?

Rust and Garry's Mod were also in the very first yogscast bundle in 2013: http://web.archive.org/web/20131230165540/https://www.humblebundle.com/yogscast

What's happening with the money from subscriptions/adverts on twitch.tv/yogscast?

  • In previous years the Yogscast have donated all earnings from twitch subs/ads to charity.
  • This year subs/ads for December will NOT be donated to charity! Instead, streamers and guests will share the earnings as normal.
  • Lewis will still be donating any money he receives from December to charity. Other streamers will be doing this at their own discretion.
  • Losing a month of twitch revenue and donations is hard for some of our streamers, who also give up their free time during the busiest month of the year.

This makes me a little... uncomfortable.

At least they're being up front about it.

But yeah, essentially streamers can participate, get a huge boost in viewers and visibility, but not actually give any money to charity.

Well, the reason is that last bullet point. The fact is, the Yogs aren't that popular usually and most of their streamers are eeking out a niche living or doing it as a sideline. So not earning for a whole month can be a financial strain for the ones who rely on it at least in part.

This change does introduce a mercenary aspect, but more along the lines of wanting to eat rather than buying a second yacht, so I understand.

At the same time, some of these streamers will be getting a big boost from the Yogs/HB visibility, so a minimum charity split (even 10%, if not 50/50) would have been nice to see.

I don't mean to be confrontational at all (sorry), I'm curious what part makes you uncomfortable? Is it the fact that they gain exposure during the charity event so therefore more views? Or that people might assume it's going to charity because of past years?

Personally I'd see is as more sketchy if you were required to subscribe, but so far they haven't had sub mode on unlike previous years when the money was donated to charities. Twitch wouldn't be giving their half to charity anyways, so best to donate directly through humble bundle. They also just did a charity "garage sale" over the summer before moving, selling a bunch of shared items and donated to Special Effect. Just personally don't think they're trying to abuse the system, but rather support the people helping stream ~10 hours a day for a month.

After last year's shitty DLCs, betas and free games, they can all go fuck themselves. After I say anything rational about how bad that bundle was and how bad this one will be with free game(Q.U.B.E.) day 1, all I get is downvotes. Shitty subreddit, full of fanboys knowing shit about anything.

Also, technically, they gave away 47 games instead of "over 50" as they said, with last bundle. Other stuff were DLCs for the shitty games not even included in the bundle. So I highly doubt there would be 60+ games this time, either.

Right... How noble of Humble to talk a bunch of developers into donating their games and selling them to us while at the same time getting a ~ 5 million $ tax deductable donation in their own name that doesn't cost them a penny.

They must be freakin' saints!

Don't switch targets; nobody's talking about the cynicism of HB's charity-washing PR, which is rightly criticizable. Agrass was criticizing the content of the bundle, which is essentially criticizing those devs that did donate free games. Losing focus by switching targets isn't helpful is seeing how absurd that criticism is.

Hurray for developers who donate free games! But adding to that that someone pays money to get unwanted and often useless content (like DLCs for games they don't play) for the buyer, it's subject of criticism. Maybe the devs give it for free for HB, but HB asks money for it, so as far as the buyer-seller connection goes, it's veeery much the subject of what content for how much money.
Also criticizing content is not criticizing the dev, get that idea out of your head. One ccould give good game for free (like FTL) to HB who then sells it for 20$. And it would be a shit deal and a scam on HB's side.

The "buyer-seller" paradigm, and criticisms that might be valid in a context where the person giving the goods is receiving something in return, is totally inapplicable when the recipient of the money is a third-party charity. You're talking nonsense. Regardless of whatever scam HB is running (and I agree they are, as you already pointed out), you can't have a "shit deal" when you don't have a "deal" in the first place at all but rather a donation.

You're so focused on charity that you're forgetting that people still pay money for it. As soon as you get anything for your money, it's subject of criticism. The only reason it counts as donation because you pay for HB who then forwards it as a donation. Casually ignoring the middle-man to enforce your idea about how noone should complain about it.
Have you ever thought why people not just give their 30$ for the charities, but pay through humblebundle then be all so happy about "it's all for charity"? People want shit their money. It's just the yearly poseur-fest of totally-not-giving-for-games. Incoming replies "it I already give I rather get something back" in 3, 2, 1...

Again, you're switching targets. Are you criticizing the devs who supply the content or not? Trying to criticize HB is a red herring, and now you've switched to criticizing the customers whose (very obviously selfish and fun-oriented) motive explains why they buy it. But why people buy from HB is totally irrelevant to whether you are getting a "good deal" in return for giving a donation to a charity and have any right to complain about it. You really need to focus on one issue and stick to it, instead of jumping around to whatever target makes it seem like there's a problem.

The jingle jams tend to not be so great for me, and $35 is 3 monthlies, so unless there's 3 great games, 35 is a lot to dish out at once.

yes they will be greyed out and no the price will not drop - so if you want max bang for buck (although you take more a chance with dup games or stuff that is not interesting to you) grab it early

early grab = everything/ know mostly nothing before buying
late grab = know most of it/ some games/dlc might be sold out or whole bundle could be sold out

Id like to remind you that this is for the charities, it is not about you. If you choose to donate then you are doing so for the charities benefit. You are very lucky that you get a good amount of games for it. Stop being so selfish. This is for the charities, not about you.

i didn't say anything about it being for charity - i could give to charities i want to give to i mean one is for lgbt (not something i am against just not really a thing i want to give money to) - so it is about what you get as $35 is a lot for people to give at once

Then again, there are games involved so people are commenting on what they get for their buck. I donate to a lot of charities on my own, I don't need Humble Bundle for that. If they want to motivate people by making a bundle, it should be a bundle that doesn't look like something out of a trash. for the charities sake.

I disagree with the statement that it looks like something out the trash, but that is a matter of opinion :) I actually like the games in the bundle :) Some are bad, I agree, but a lot are good :D

oh I didn't mean this one is trash, I was speaking generally. Most of the games are old news though. Bundled already or from the monthly trove like Teslagrad, and too many DLC already. The point is to get people to buy early so if those are the top of the bundle, it's not great

Right? And they keep going! I wish that they had bigger things coming but it seems to me it"ll only get weaker as it goes and I have nothing against DLC but it seems more and more bundles are about offering cheap things to make you buy expensive games and I don't see the point. Not really trusting their counter right now because there seems to be a lot of people buying what i literally a DLC bundle.

At the end of the day, it is sadly a business ploy. It is intended to get people to buy more things which is a shame. I wish things could literally be all about charity but it seems its all about business :(

Sadly yes. At least some charity benefit from it but it's about making people buy stuff. And the tax deduction they get for donating the money they are handed
