By now, I’m sure you’re well aware of what Humble Bundle is – a few games in one package, you pay what you want and then divide the money between developer, Humble Bundle and charity. It’s a terrific idea that normally helps out indie developers, but as we’ve seen recently, Double Fine have been getting in on the act and now, THQ.
The publisher, who hasn’t been getting on great lately, have teamed with the long-running distributor to bring some of its back catalogue to players. Included in the deal are; Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction Armageddon, Company of Heroes (and its two expansions, Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor) and if you pay over the average, you’ll get Saints Row: The Third. Currently, the average is just over $5.00. Even at that price, this collection is an absolute steal.
I’m sure you’ve seen that this pairing of THQ and Humble Bundle has caused a bit of uproar among some gaming circles. A number of people feel that the “Indie” in “Humble Indie Bundle” has truly been lost with this current deal. Well, THQ aren’t in the best of conditions at the minute – some would say they’re on the verge of being an indie publisher – and this also supports charity. CHARITY.
