Humble Bundle: Sid Meier Civilization Edition

We have posted about the Humble Bundles before: pay what you want for fantastic games and you can decide how much money goes to charity. 2K has teamed up with the Humble Bundle to offer Civilization on a pay what you want basis with certain versions unlocked at certain donation amounts.

Starting at only $0.01 you will receive all of the following:

  • Sid Meier’s Civilization III Complete
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: The Complete Edition
  • Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol
  • Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies
  • Sid Meier’s Railroads

If you want the games on Steam for Windows then you must pay a minimum of $1. If you pay more than the average price (currently $5.63) you will also receive:

  • Sid Meier’s Civilization V
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Gods and Kings DLC.

Pay $15 or more in total and you will also receive Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World DLC.

This bundle has an overall value of $144 and you can get the entire thing for just $15, or the smaller bundles for less. This is a fantastic deal and if I didn’t already own most of this I would do it in a heartbeat.

The charity this is supporting is called Action Against Hunger which is a global humanitarian organization committed to ending world hunger. It is a very worthy cause!

All prices in USD.

Humble Bundle: Pay What You Want For Warner Brother Games Including Batman: Arkham Series

Posted by on November 17, 2013 at 2:30 PM

Humble Bundle: Pay What You Want For Warner Brother Games Including Batman: Arkham Series Punch a savaging monkey-weasel in the face and get your filthy meat hooks into this amazing deal from The Humble Bundle!

The Humble Bundle is so named because, and follow me here, it is a bundle of games whose reason for being is humble. It’s humble in the sense that The Humble Bundle people aren’t doing this to make money off of their mad skills at rounding up game developers. No, The Humble Bundle people do this for charity. The way this works is that you pay whatever you want for a few games and split the amount between the game developer (in this case WB) a charity (‘We Can Be Heroes’ is the charity for this deal) and The Humble Bundle people. If you pay more than the average amount paid you get extra games. In this case there are a lot of extra games and a lot of really, really awesome extra games. The average donation is $4.75 at the time of this writing, so you get all these games for less than $5. It’s amazing. The games you get no matter what you pay are:

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY
  • F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
  • F.E.A.R. 3
  • Lord of the Rings: War in the North

If that isn’t enough, you can break out your wallet, take out those maaaad stacks of cash, drop a digital fiver on the table and walk away with eight more games:

  • Scibblenauts Unlimited
  • Batman: Arkham City GOTY
  • F.E.A.R.
  • Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection
  • Guardians of Middle Earth + DLC
  • Lord of the Rings Online: Steely Dawn Starter Pack
  • Gotham City Impostors: Professional Kit
  • The Millennium Skins Pack for Batman: Arkham Origins

Yeah, it’s that good. I’m picking up this one for sure. These are only available on Steam.

HumbleBundle: Pay What You Want For 7 DRM-Free, Cross-Platform + Android Video Games & Help Charity

Posted by on June 25, 2013 at 9:00 PM

HumbleBundle: Pay What You Want For 7 DRM Free, Cross Platform + Android Video Games & Help Charity

Help charity and get awesome games? How could it get better? Oh yeah, you can pay whatever you want!

The title of this post is a little misleading just for the sake of brevity. One of the games, Pulse: Volume One, is Android-only and two of the games, Broken Sword: Director’s Cut and Frozen Synapse have a minimum price you have to hit before you get them, but I’ll explain that after I tell you what games you’re gonna get!

  • Aquaria
  • Fractal
  • Organ Trail: Director’s Cut
  • Stealth Bastard Deluxe
  • Pulse
Bonus games:
  • Frozen Synapse
  • Broken Sword: Director’s Cut

The way this works is that you literally pay whatever you want: $3, $1, anything, and you’ll get the first five games listed up there. If you pay over the average which, as of the writing of this article, is under $5, you unlock the other two games.

The really cool part about The Humble Bundle is the humble part. When you buy the games, you can split your donation between the fine folks who put on The Humble Bundle, the developers of the games and two charities. You can split it any way you want. You can do 65% to Child’s Play, 10% to the EFF, 15% split evenly between all the game devs and 10% to The Humble Bundle people. Any split you want. Very cool.

What split are you going to give? Let me know in the comments below! (Thanks to Nick)

The Humble Indie Bundle: Pay What You Want. Support Charity. Get Cross-Platform, DRM-Free Games

Posted by on June 5, 2013 at 11:00 AM

The Humble Indie Bundle: Pay What You Want. Support Charity. Get Cross Platform, DRM Free Games

If you aren’t down with the Humble Bundle, you aren’t down with awesome.

BOOM! Another Humble Bundle! These guys. Oh, these guys! They are rocking the bundles out. This is the eighth Humble Indie Bundle. If you aren’t familiar with the Humble Bundle I’ll explain. This specific bundle has five games (with soundtracks) available for whatever you want to pay. That’s right. Pay $1 or $1000. Whatever you want. The kicker here is that if you pay more than the average, you get six more games and five more soundtracks! Right now the average is about $5.75. So for under $6 you can get eleven games and ten soundtracks. The average will change as people buy, of course. These are digital downloads, DRM-Free and Cross-Platform.

  • Little Inferno
  • Awesomenauts + Exclusive Chicken Skin
  • Capsized
  • Thomas was Alone
  • Dear Esther

If you pay over the average you get the following:

  • Hotline Miami
  • Proteus
  • Tiny and Big in Grandpa’s Leftovers
  • Intrusion 2
  • English Country Tune
  • Oil Rush
  • Five More Soundtracks

The real beauty with the Humble Bundle is that you choose where the money goes to. You can put all your money to the developers, the charities or the people who put on the Humble Bundle. But it goes even deeper. Do you hate the EFF but love Child’s Play? Give all your money to them! Want to give 75% of your money to the people who make Dear Esther and 25% to the Oil Rush people, go for it! Give whatever you want to whoever you want!

The Humble Bundle: Support Charity & Pay What You Want for 3 Games From Double Fine + More!

Double Fine and The Humble Bundle are teaming up to bring you some awesome games for an awesome cause!

So the whole deal with the humble bundle is that you pay whatever you want for a base of products. In this case you can pay whatever you want for three games. The games are all by Double Fine and Costume Quest, Psychonauts and Stacking. But that’s not all! If you pay more than the average donation which, at the time of this writing, is around $8, you get another game! The bonus game is Brutal Legend. Now this particular bundle has some other cool stuff to it. Double Fine has been working on a game called Broken Age (formerly Double Fine Adventure) that they did a Kickstarter for. The Kickstarter is over but you can still get in on the Kickstarter rewards (pre-order, documentary, etc…) if you pay over $35 for this Humble Bundle. You’ll also get all the games. And there is an even higher level! If you pay over $70 you get all the previous level plug a Double Fine shirt.

Now the humble bundle isn’t just a great way to get great games for Linux, Windows or Mac. No, it’s not just a place to get a bunch of awesome perks for supporting Broken Age. It’s not even just a fantastic place to get a super cool shirt. It’s all that AND a way to support charity! Basically you choose where your money goes. Want to give it all to charity? Awesome. Which charity? 50% to the EFF and 50% to Child’s Play? Sure. Want to give 50% of your purchase to Child’s Play, 25% to Double Fine and 25% to the people who put together The Humble Bundle? You can do that too. give it all the the Humble Bundle people? Yep. Whatever split you want!

HumbleBundle.com: Pay What You Want for 9 DRM-Free Cross-Platform Games, a Movie & Soundtacks! (& Help Charity, Too!)

Posted by on December 30, 2012 at 12:00 PM

HumbleBundle.com: Pay What You Want for 9 DRM Free Cross Platform Games, a Movie & Soundtacks! (& Help Charity, Too!)The Humble Bundle people are doing it again! You get games, a movie and soundtracks, you help charity and you pay whatever you want. There is nothing better than that.

I feel like people don’t believe me when I say you pay whatever you want. Or maybe they just don’t believe that the games are any good. Well, both of these are true. You can pay whatever you want. If you want to pay a dollar, pay a dollar. If you want to pay $500, pay $500. And the games are awesome. They are indy games that run without DRM on Windows, Mac or Linux. This specific bundle would cost you about $170 regularly.

The games available are:

  • The Binding of Isaac (and its DLC, Wrath of the Lamb)
  • Closure
  • Shank 2
  • Snapshot
  • Indie Game: The Movie!

But the real deal is when you pay more than the average price; You get five additional games. As this is posted the average price is under $6.75. The extra games are:

  • The Basement Collection
  • Cave Story+
  • Offspring Fling
  • Dungeon Defenders (and its DLC)
  • Legend of Grimrock

On top of this, a bunch of games come with soundtracks. You need more? I’ll give you more. Pay over $1 and get the steam codes for the games.

How about this: You can choose where your money goes: 15% to charity, 75% to developers and 10% to the Humble Bundle people? Sure, why not? Want to break up that 75% and give 50% of your 75% to the people who made “The Binding of Isaac”? You can do it. There is nothing bad about this deal so just go out and get it. Viva la Rampant Consumerism! Huzzah!

HumbleBundle.com: Support Charity & Pay What You Want for 6 THQ Games (Windows Only)

Posted by on December 4, 2012 at 3:00 PM

HumbleBundle.com: Support Charity & Pay What You Want for 6 THQ Games (Windows Only)

HumbleBundle is offering up another sweet stack of games, this time all from THQ, and letting you pay whatever you want for them! What could be better? Supporting charity with your purchase!

Here are the games you get when you pay whatever you want. Even as low as $1!

  • Darksiders + soundtrack
  • Metro 2033
  • Red Faction: Armageddon + soundtrack
  • Company of Heroes  + two soundtracks
  • Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
  • Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor

If you pay above the average donation which, as of this posting, is less than $6, you get Saints Row: The Third!

I’m going to pretty much completely overlook the games here other than to say that they are all awesome. I’m pretty interested in Darksiders and Red Faction and I know some people who love Company of Heroes.

So why would I ignore the games? Because the more important thing here is that you are giving to charity. But let me back up; When you buy the Humble Bundle you can break out your payment and decide where it goes. You can give it all to the developer, all to charity or all to the Humble Bundle people. Within that you can break it up by which developer (in this specific Humble Bundle you only have THQ) and which charity (Child’s Play and Red Cross). For example I am a huge supporter of Child’s Play. I think it’s one of the best charities out there. So if I were going to buy this Humble Bundle, I would break my donations probably along the lines of 60% to charity (with all of it going to Child’s Play), 25% to the Humble Bundle people and 15% to THQ.

I have some homework for everyone reading this. Regardless of whether or not you are going to buy this, go on THQ’s Facebook page and tell them they are awesome for supporting Humble Bundle and make sure you @BargainMoose so they know who sent you! Do you do the twitter thing? @ reply THQ’s Twitter and tell them the same. Make sure you #BargainMoose. Gotta represent the ‘moose!

Humble Bundle: Pay What You Want for a Pack of Awesome Android (and PC/Mac/Linux) Games and Support Charity While You do it!

Posted by on November 21, 2012 at 3:00 PM

Humble Bundle: Pay What You Want for a Pack of Awesome Android (and PC/Mac/Linux) Games and Support Charity While You do it!

I did a humble bundle write up a while ago but that was for books and reading is for suckers. The cool kids are all playing video games. You want to be cool, don’t you?

Ok, so I didn’t put the price or number of games in the title because it takes some explaining. The humble bundle is five games and you pay whatever you want for them. $1, $50 or over $9000. For that you will get the following games for Android, Linux, PC and Mac.

But if you pay over the average price payed (which at this point is less than $7, you get six additional games for Android, Linux, PC or Mac. The games are as follows.

If that wasn’t enough you get the soundtracks to these games if there happens to be a tune you dig. You might be saying “a game song, really?” but these aren’t your little 99 cent farming games. These are real games. They are big and have great soundtracks and graphics.

So what in the world could ever be better than this deal? Well, the whole thing is to raise money for charity. The charities this time around are the EFF and Child’s Play. Which brings me to another awesome aspect of this deal. You can choose where to money goes. If you want you can put all the money to charity or all of it to the devs or all of it to the Humble Tip, which goes to the people who put on the Humble Bundle. Beyond that you can break it into which developers you want to give to or which charities. I, personally, am a big supporter of the Child’s Play charity so the charity portion of my donation will all go to Child’s Play.

HumbleBundle.com: Pay What You Want for $157 Worth of SciFi & Fantasy eBooks!

Posted by on October 19, 2012 at 10:00 AM

HumbleBundle.com: Pay What You Want for $157 Worth of SciFi & Fantasy eBooks!

HumbleBundle makes me so happy I want to punch a clown right in the face for not bringing the same level of cheer to me. That’s right, I will cause physical harm to performers who are loved by children far and wide, just because they can’t make me as happy as HumbleBundle does!

So HumbleBundle is just about the greatest thing around. Basically, they get a bunch of content producers (traditionally mobile app devs) to donate content (traditionally mobile apps) to them so their apps can be sold with the money given straight to charity. This is a little bit of a different HumbleBundle because they are featuring $157 worth of DRM FREE eBooks!

Specifically they are offering SciFi and Fantasy eBooks. You get five books, but if you donate above the average price of, as of this writing, $13.74, you get seven more books. These aren’t your piddling 99 cent amateur Fantasy books like the stuff I write, oh no, this is high end stuff. We’re talkin’ about the likes of Bacigalupi, Scalzi and Doctorow. Not enough? Hows about I hit you with a little Gaiman and McKean! BOOM! K.O.’d!

Another great feature is that you can split where the money goes. You can give it all to the charity, all to the authors or all to the (non=profit) HumbleBundle people. You can also split it between all three and within there, you can break it up more. Really like Gaiman? Give him 50% of your money. Like Cory Doctorow and the EFF, split it 50/50 between the two. Wanna stick it to the authors and their charities!? Give it all to the HumbleBundle!

Also, I’m going to call this one right now: BargainMoose’s Benevolent Dictator for Life, Anna Waters, is going to buy this. Anna, let us know in the comments!

The Humble FrozenByte Bundle is a great deal: get 4 full games and pay whatever you want for them! Not only that, you choose how much of what you pay goes to the charities or the developers. So pay $0.01, or pay $10… your choice!

The bundle is available for 9 more days. After that: it’s gone. The Humble FrozenByte Bundle: Pay What you Want for 4 Games I bought the last Humble Bundle and it was a fabulous deal and the games were pretty cool too!
