First they take away our choice. Now they take away our surprise (monthly leaks). Are you still excited about what allegedly is considered to be "the best bundle" of the month?

View Results
[I like the spotlight game(s)] Nice lineup and even if the spotlight games are 2 years old, it’s still much cheaper than buying them during sales.
[Only with limited deal] My poor wallet is still Surviving the Aftermath of the Easter expenses and would probably not take yet another push. Better wait and see if any discount coupon will be allocated later this month.
[Happy] Those are 8 pretty solid games, IMO. I’ve always wanted to try Planet Zoo / Command & Conquer and now I finally can!
[Neutral] Not the best bundle, but all around, not a terrible one either. I’m not really sure if it warrants a purchase or not.
[Pause] Considering that I have to pause my subscription every month, wouldn’t it be so much easier to have a 'Resume subscription' button instead?
[Disappointed, lineup] Doing Jurassic World Evolution with DLCs right before Planet Zoo without DLCs smacks of utter laziness.
[Disappointed, Origin] When will they finally learn that we don’t want Origin keys when the game is on Steam?
[Canceling the subscription] …and I don’t even have any regrets about that.
[Choicetato] I'd rather go back to having 10-12 niche indie games that I mostly never heard of than 8 bigger titles that don’t interest me anyway.

I'm not interested in any of the games, so it's an insta-pawse for me. I guess I should thank HB for making me save money. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Does anyone know how long it typically takes for SG to change the CV status from Full to * for "Monthly Humble Choice" games?

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Can be between a few days and a few weeks, depending on how the moderators manage to allocate their time into doing this. The CV will be retroactively recalculated anyway, and the partial CV start date will be considered as the bundle launch date regardless of when the actual change will happen.

And, I've often wondered and assumed ... bundles where you have a "choice" (like the "Monthly Humble Choice") are always also considered by SG as bundles that affect CV, correct?

Comment has been collapsed.

That should depend on how much cheaper the bundle price is than the full retail value (which CV mostly corresponds to – I don't remember if it's about the actual MSRP including of non-Steam items, or about how many SG points the bundle contents could be given away as).

For example https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/SAqrB/humble-bundle-february-monthly-bundle-incl-xcom-2 is a monthly that didn't get reduced CV for its games at the time.
I suppose for Choice bundles with an actual choice, it should depend on the 'most CV-efficient' way to buy it. In general, if this bundle is $12 but you easily get a $4 discount by threatening to pause, it's a $8 bundle for "bundle CV or not?" purposes.

At some point in the past, the rule of thumb was "if it's 95% off or more for any region in any constellation, it gets added to the bundle list". It doesn't necessarily work like that now, and there's not much documentation for why individual products are added to the bundle list or not, nor recourse to complain. I'm sure SG staff are busy enough without having to defend their bundle CV and zero CV choices all day.

I'm under the impression that the current practice of adding a game to Reduced CV is whether something was ever in a bundle (typically non-pick & mix) and if not has the game been sold for >=95% off.

If only "Choice" actually meant something. Ideally give us the choice of platform for the game, like I thought was promoted during this year's revamp of the program. Instead they are the ones making the choice.

Reminds me of when a prospective employer advertises "flexible hours" implying that the employee has the option to work when it's most convenient to the rest of things going on in their life. In practice however, it means the employer can jack around your schedule however they see fit, and if you aren't able to adapt then you're told to find someplace else to work. N Not that I've ever experienced this personally >.>

Ha true. Though before recent months, there was an option for our choice of games which meant something if we weren't eligible for the whole set. That's the reason we're still forced to go through the motions of "selecting" which games to claim.

I still think it was simply due to trying it and failing and not wanting to go back on the decision not to look bad.

IIRC they gave out all of the games for all of the buyers rather fast after implementing the choice. Same with pricing tiers - tried it, saw that it failed and then we had "tiered choice" in which everyone still paid the $12 and got all of the games. Enough time passed and they removed the tiers... In due time maybe they will even change the name when everyone will have forgotten how it came to be

Well we can still "choose" to pause, which is my default choice lately. Let's see how long it takes for them to take away that choice too.

"Choice" is really a holdover of when they had staggered tiers of different costs that determined the number of games you could choose from out of the entire month's bundle, as not everyone had the platinum or choice tier that would give most or all games.

Now it is literally Humble's Choice as to which games you get, if you choose to buy.

Am I going crazy? Like this is a standard good quality Monthly. Or like do people legit expect AAA blockbusters each month? To pretend games like Planet Zoo, Embr, Spellcaster University and Spongebob are stinkers is some pure insanity. It's literally 9.99€, which is more than Planet Zoo or Spongebob alone.

Though the Origin key is stupid if there's also a Steam version. At least have it be a choice.

You don't have a choice though so it is kinda a problem. I can understand people who won't buy it solely because there is an origin key (i think origin is tolerable). I myself have a disgust for a particular launcher and would immediately unsubscribe if it ends in the monthly.

I agree on the quality of games. It is really not that bad, just maybe a bit too niche for most.

Good point. The lack of a choice is an issue. For them to truly embrace Choice properly, they'd need a ratio of options that's around 2:1, I'd say. But for what it is, it's quite alright, I'd say.

Didn't know Embr was bundled, but everything else is kinda nonsense to be completely honest with you.

You might as well have said "These games I've never heard of suck because I'm assuming they're bad. Also, I haven't got any interest in these games, so they're bad."

"Plant Zoo" is completely fine without DLC and is a full game on its own right. Magic isn't just Harry Potter, it's like saying all Sci-Fi is Star Wars. And being based on a TV Show makes games bad now?

I'm guessing you said it all as a joke since I can't imagine a person saying these things seriously.

no but what other magic shows/films really are there and being based on a tv show make it much smaller the amount of people who like it - i love Spogebob which is why i played the game years ago on ps2 (remastered or not it's basically the same game)

Planet zoo looks like a poor mans Zoo Tycoon to be honest - please include our game in your bundle so we can force suckers to spend £££ to complete the game with the animals and packs we removed from the main game to sell to you later

i was serious if i hadn't paid for a year sometime ago - i would 100% not even looked twice at this bundle (and yes i have already cancelled humble)

I mean, Spongebob is a massive brand, plus the game's well received.
As to other magic shows, I can currently remember off the top of my head shows like Merlin, The Witcher, Charmed, Carnival Row, The Magicians, Once Upon a Time, Cursed, Sabrina, American Horror Story, The Umbrella Academy and also all the Marvel shows.
As to movies, Narnia Trilogy, The Lord of the Rings, The VVitch, Doctor Strange, most Disney stuff and a big portion of mid-2000s popcorn flicks since that's when magic was a big moneymaker.

As to Planet Zoo, I mean it's literally like the best modern tycoon game out there with its sales and reception, so I don't know what else to tell ya.

I get if you don't like these games, but to say a show with an average of 50 million viewers a month worldwide, the game that was developed by the biggest tycoon developers on the market and a genre that was as widely used as genres like "War" or "Sci-Fi" is a bit extreme. Also, I don't mean to make it seem like it's their best bundle, but it's 9.99€ after all. Won't be getting Cyberpunk 2077 for that, try as you might.

wigglenose at least did a good job in showing that it isn't you who is crazy. ;)

But it's pretty much a standardized ritual. If a game with DLC is included, complaints about an incomplete game are a must. That other gamers praised the base game before the expansions came to be is irrelevant to these people.
The same applies to many other traditional complaints about these bundles. Like people not getting that their personal preferences not being satisfied doesn't result in a bundle being "the worst ever". It's just not meant for them.

You see half of the games are simulation thingy, those might be too niche for some people (including me, never like that genre). That can be deal breaker too, aside from the origin key and planet zoo dlcs fest.
The bundle can't be measured by the price/value only, unless you just want to collect games.

This is what I try to bring up every time this discussion comes up .....
I for one really liked this bundle. Already have 20 hours in Surviving the Aftermath.

But I absolutely hate any bundle with visual novels, anime or something of that sort .. although they might have higher value and everyone is going crazy about them ....

The "value" is secondary to what a specific person actually would love to play.. If I don't care for a single game in a bundle I might not even get it for half the price (ok, maybe for GAs, but thats different topic)

That is where "group buys" are helpful. You can usually find people interested in different games, assuming you figure out a fair split of the bundle cost. For instance, at the time of my posting, a fair split could look like this:

☐ Planet Zoo - 3.80 €
☐ SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated - 1.75 €
☐ Surviving the Aftermath - 1.60 €
☐ Command & Conquer Remastered Collection - 0.95 €
☐ Spellcaster University - 0.75 €
☐ Embr - 0.60 €
☐ Genesis Noir - 0.30 €
☐ If Found... - 0.25 €

That is where you see that the bundle is indeed a really good value. However, if you keep all of the games, including ones which you don't want, then I can understand your argument: the cost of what you really want does not benefit as much from the bundle price.

Is there even any need to bring up "anime, VN or something of the sort"?? that's irrelevant with current choice bundle, as only one VN in there and it's not even high value or anything. so yeah, I agree with your statement about value, but don't care about your preference.
though I still think Choice should be more diverse in genre.

Bruh.. I said that because it's relevant to the current choice discussion, which is mostly simulation management games, it's only as simple example, maybe there are people who dislike current choice because of the same reason, not to insult anyone who like them, LMAO.
I would say the same for others too, let's say someone suddenly said he dislike certain genre which is unrelated to current discussion, I would still say that I don't care. Nothing's wrong but it's out of context and unnecessary.

Digital video games have been greatly devalued, since, although the steam price says $35 USD, few people buy it at that price (omitting the launch ones), in steam offers the games usually have a 60% discount , i buy planet zoo for $10 USD at the beginning of 2020 the Deluxe edition. Before this month's HB was released on official pages of games, planet zoo it was at 3.5 USD. So I do not consider it to be a great offer and more without DLC.

I complain because I compare with many older bundles of much more value, because the reality is that, although they are good games, they are niche games, and an AAA is usually for more public.

In addition, that HB's decisions have made it more expensive and less profitable for users

Regarding the origin key, I like to have my games in one place in the first place, secondly, steam offers tools that improve the gaming experience, not in this case, but in others they give cards to get a few cents, Also if before they gave keys for steam of all the games I don't see why change it just because it suits the company.

Many people say that it is for donating money that we should not complain, but the reality is that bundles are a business and only a small part is donated.

I mean it's a very general statement to say that doesn't apply to a majority of games. "Devalued" is meaningless when you only have 1000 sales at a $10 profit margin (so $20 MSRP) when the game took 2 developers to make over the course of 18 months in America.

But yeah, I don't disagree with other stuff and I don't want to make it seem like I do. Just that while of course in an idealized world no one looks for a profit and everyone gets stuff cheap, it's also not an ideal world. Record inflation, game prices have very noticeably increased in the cheapest markets as well and regional pricing has also become less flexible thanks to this exact expectation that every game would be $3.50. The well's drying up on that market not only due to abuse from gray markets, but also because the market 8 months ago is not the same as it is now.

With digital video games came another type of sales that developers expect, which are initial sales and secondary sales for offers (since the Xbox 360 passed, discounts from 10% to 95%); It must clearly be a business for everyone, the devaluation or the prices do not come from the bundle pages or the gray market, they come from the oversupply of games. Many developers have said that they have made more money from bundles and offering their game "free" (epicgames, game pass, PlayStation plus), than from sales. I return to the same thing that indie video games, regardless of their quality, are mostly niche.

In my case I have bought around 40 or 50 HB bundles and I have only played 10% of them (and I know from forums that there are people with lower percentages). So in my case, a bundle or Hb choice with a triple AAA catches my attention.

The only thing that makes me very angry about current HB is that the games have a region lock if I pay $12 USD, just like everyone else, I would like to be able to give the games that I have repeated to friends from other countries, or to be able to exchange them freely; In addition to the fact that I can no longer give them in this forum as a raffle and finally the origin keys often expire or the policies of their platforms mean that they can delete your library "for no reason".

Personally, I really enjoyed planet zoo and the base content is fine (for me planet zoo is the best current zoo simulator, which unfortunately doesn't have much competition), but if you played zootycoon 2, planet zoo will disappoint you a bit, plus the The price of the DLC is $100 USD (regional price of Mexico) and the DLC lacks content, only a few animals that you can count on one hand and aesthetic elements in many cases only new textures.

SpongeBob SquarePants is fine if you like 3D platformers, but it feels a bit old compared to other games.

12 dollars is a good price for the games but it may come out in the future in a bundle with the DLC. Like the one in Jurassic World Evolution.

If you're only interested in this 2 games, wait to see if they send any coupons, if you plan to split the bundle with someone just remember that Humble bundle has put in a lot of region locks lately

A big problem with management games is that with the DLC they update the base game, causing things to appear that complicate the base game or many bugs (also the game is usually somewhat incomplete), in the case of the base game planet zoo I felt that It was missing a lot of interaction and animal things, I got some bugs when they added DLC, but nothing hard, but the reality is that I did not experiment much.

But in games like Prison Architect, sims 4, Jurassic World Evolution etc. Not having the DLC ruins the gaming experience, they make a lot of bugs and the case of the first one prevents you from advancing in the campaign.

Sadly, this deal still doesn't make the bundle worth...

Not complaining about these lovely coupons, but man, they really screwed annual subscribers. We pay less monthly than they do yearly, even with that $99 a year deal. They better treat those folks better this Christmas. Give them like $80 a year deals or something.

I don't know if there is supposed to be any region lock for the Origin key of C&C Remastered Collection. I have sent my key (EU) to a person in the USA, and they have apparently been able to redeem it on their account.

So, I have also recieved the 8$/month (for 2 months) coupon, but i cannot purchase it to myself, because i am an "active member", meaning that I only paused, not cancelled it completely. As far as I can see, I have 2 options:

  • Cancel, then use the coupon. Not sure if I cancel do I lose the coupon?
  • Gift it to someone I trust, and get the keys back from them.
    What do You guys think, which is the better option? I guess I will lose the 20% store discount either way (not that I use it much)...

You only lose the 20% if you actually don't buy Choice for one month. As long as you buy it before the next one comes, you keep the 20%.

Try unpausing and buying. My guess is, that it will use the coupon then. If not, cancel and then buy it.

Sorry for the noob(ish) question but I never unpaused before. Won't it instantly pay for this monthly, when i click "unpause"? That's why i haven't try this before...
Also, it says I am an "active member", so not sure unpausing will make me more "inactive"... :D

It's the same as manually buying before the auto-charge date. You will be asked to confirm your payment method and such. And there you can see if the coupon is applied or not.

Okay thanks! :)
Sadly, it did not work out as expected. I continued, coupon still did not apply, so cancelled, and lost the coupon after that.
Well, maybe someone else can learn from this. :)

Really? Didn't expect that at all. I even still have a $2 coupon although I already bought it for $8 with another coupon. Is there really no coupon there?

I'd probably contact Humble support and complain. You do have the coupon email as proof, right?

Yup, can confirm, no Choice coupon there...
Contacted the support, will see what they can do about it. Also yes, I have the e-mail.

Update: Still haven't recieved an answer from the Humble support (in 8 days), but I also (like many others) got the 6$ coupon for 2 months, so it's even better. Let's hope i can make this one work :D

My coupon was used after I clicked on "Choose you games" button, not after unpausing subscription

I got the $8 for two months deal and this first one says that the offer ends on June 7.

Today, I get a reminder about it and now it says that the offer ends on May 24 which is two weeks earlier than what the original email says.

I'm not sure if I've seen the offer expiry date change like this before.

I got exactly the same emails. I supposed they realized that we could still skip this crappy May bundle et get June + July for $8, so they changed it! Is this even legal?

I only got the deal for one month, but otherwise it's the same thing for me: first mail said, coupon expires June 7, now I got another one with an expiry date May 24. Even with an expiry date of June 7, it wouldn't have been possible to accept the deal and skip the May bundle at the same time. So, I suspect the change of date may be a really dirty trick: they simply hope that we are not looking at the expiry date too closely. By the time we realize that the coupon is already expired we would have already paid the full price for the bundle.

Thanks for correcting me! :)

Oh, I wasn't trying to correct you, I was merely offering my two cents. Anyway, you were right to ask if this is even legal. They clearly changed the expiry date of the offer and made it look in their mail like it's just a reminder for the same offer. That's pretty low down.

I agree, and I also dislike how they reward the less loyal customers. I know many companies operate this way, but I still dislike it!

To be honest, rewarding loyal customers would be the last thing I wanted from Choice. That way, you'd only get a discount if you never paused. Even if all their bundles were really great (which they aren't - because it's pretty much impossible to come up with something that makes everyone happy on a monthly basis), I still like to pause every now and then. I just would like a bit more consistency with their discount offers, e.g. some of my friends don't seem to get any/many offers at all, while others seem to get thrown offers at them, no matter what.

That explains why the coupon did not work for me today. I was in no hurry because that email said June 7 but now it is gone. Just contacted support.

I thought I paused but I guess not. When I went to cancel membership it offered me $3 off my next bill.

Well, they broke me. I don't like that choice as I already had Planet zoo, but bought it just to keep 7€ deal for next month

Same, already bought some games from splits at launch, but I could still keep 2-3 games, making giveaways and having a nice discount for the next month.

Bought SpongeBob on the cheap and skipped this month. Will probably do this more going forward since there are no more mystery games. I can buy what I want which is almost always cheaper than the full bundle, and if not then I can buy the bundle.
