I do enjoy pick up deals from the Humble Bundle website, usually there is one or 2 games I fancy getting plus I’m a sucker for game soundtracks and jump at any chance to add more to my collection.
This time around is a Humble Jumbo Bundle 2, which includes lots of titles that were on my Steam Wishlist which was nice. I have to imagine that for someone just getting into PC gaming the Bundle deals and offers are a great way of stocking up on titles.
Admittedly some of them are a little old and maybe not as high quality as a stack of newer titles, but half the fun is exploring titles you haven’t tried before and with the reduced price tag it’s not too much of a hit on your bank account.
In the Jumbo 2 bundle I choose not to pay the top tier for The Age of Empires Legacy Bundle and settled for the 2nd tier of games by paying over the average for the Bundle.
So for a Tenner (£10) I managed to get a good few games for under 10% of the cost (as priced on Steam at time of posting), which now I’m a family man is far more than I expect to spend on game purchases in a year (excluding subs).
There is more
Another nice feature that the Humble Bundle folks have recently implement was listing the games that hadn’t been claimed and that are giftable in an easy to access to location. I have a number that have been duplicates from Bundles past so it’s nice to find them without having to hunt through my purchase history.
