Gave them 1$ cuz im a dick.

I don't think THQ is going to make a significant amount of money from basically giving away some of their most popular games. It seems more like a classy way to go out of business.

Speaking of game soundtracks... I feel not enough have given props to one of the most amazing things ever. The entire voice cast of SR 3 singing Sublime's "Thats what I got" during the credit scroll. Absolute. Fucking. Genius.

I wonder how much the bandwidth for the 30(?) GB costs.

#105 Posted by jakob187 (21762 posts) -

I'm paying $1.00 for this. I know, I know. "They could use the money, blah blah blah".

However, I'm going to be doubling up on some of these by getting them on PC...and I already have Saints Row The Third (complete package) on Steam.

So...there's that.

Also, there's this sweet news story about how the stock of THQ has gone up 40% since this Humble Bundle started. Very cool to hear!

#106 Posted by Omegus (29 posts) -

what happened to forcing games they sell to be cross platform? Very frustrated.

I already have Saints Row, but I'll pay over the average to get it on my PC too. These humble bundles are seriously adding to my back log! Too many games, not enough time!

Play Phoenix Wright already!

Now I can finally go back and play Metro 2033 and Darksiders.What a great deal.

I just bought this and installed saints row the third.... man it is just as good as people have said and way better! With my 560ti it absolutely kills it, looks amazing, first impression is awesome so far.

#110 Posted by Zuldim (287 posts) -

I won't lie, although the bundle is definitely worth it, and it would be stupid to complain about anything, I was pretty bummed out to find out this is licensed, and isn't on the Saints Row: The Third soundtrack.

Hey, the main theme is pretty great though.

#111 Posted by Inquisitor_Sif (58 posts) -

Remember that all the games are digital distributed. It means that it doesn't cost THQ anything (except for the share ratio with the partner in the deal). And thus, all the money they get turn into profit, not revenue. I think we need more of this during the holiday season.

#112 Posted by vaportra1l (270 posts) -

I paid 10 bucks, even though I had all the games except Armageddon because why not.

#113 Posted by The_Nubster (2358 posts) -

Ten bucks, even though I own Darksiders and Saints Row, don't want Armageddon and have no interest in Company of Heroes. Long live THQ!

#114 Edited by Anund (940 posts) -

Paid $25 even though I had the games I was interested in (CoH, Darksiders, Metro 2033). I think paying less than $10 for a bundle like this is almost an insult.

Maybe not significant, but they have the potential to earn quite a bit. They've already surpassed the amount of cash HIB 6 earned in a week ($2,048,501) in less than 24 hours. If they throw in something decent for week 2, they might earn even more.

#116 Posted by LaszloKovacs (1213 posts) -

Totally picked this up on the first day, cannot recommend it enough.

#117 Posted by SSully (4326 posts) -

I think it's pretty cool how a big portion of the top donations are coming from game devs, some of which at THQ.

#118 Posted by jakob187 (21762 posts) -

Wait a minute. Someone mentioned that they might add MORE to this bundle?

Why in the fuck would I buy it now?! Why not wait until they end up adding something else into it?

Now I'm torn on whether to buy it now or later...

#119 Edited by AndrewB (7691 posts) -

@jakob187: Because all past Humble Bundles have added games for people paying over the average price. As long as you pay over the average, you'll get the games. That means (currently) spending closer to $6.

Only reason I'm not buying is because I already own most of those games (really don't care about that particular Red Faction game or expansion packs to Company of Heroes).

#120 Edited by jonnybob (163 posts) -

They have officially added more to the Bundle, now you can get your hands on the action RPG Titan Quest and Red Faction: Armageddon's mission pack, Path to War. Just have to pay more than the average. ($5.58 at the moment)

#121 Posted by deano546 (184 posts) -

Disappointed they haven't added Red Faction Guerilla, I guess I could play my 360 copy, but, ew, console.

#122 Posted by MB (13134 posts) -

Too bad they're not giving away Titan Quest: Gold...Immortal Throne is a great expansion pack.

#123 Posted by gamefreak9 (2419 posts) -

TBH this isn't my fav bundle, nothing tops the indie bundle. Braid, Limbo, Lone Survivor, Superbrothers, Psychonauts... etc. Just because these are more expensive games doesn't mean they are more fun. To me it seems like half of them are made obsolete by the other half, the only good value in there is saints row.

#124 Posted by JoeyRavn (4983 posts) -

I bought the pack last week, hoping they would add something nice on week 2. And while Titan Quest is a great game, I already have the Gold edition on Steam, and the DLC for Red Faction is... well, DLC for Red Faction. No need for me to beat the average this time.

#125 Edited by Nardak (583 posts) -

Well THQ will probably go down because of Homefront. I dont really understand why publishers cant try to do smaller scale games which when succesfull can be given additional resources for developing a sequel.

Instead medium sized game publishers are taking really large risks when they really cant take the losses if the product fails to sell the needed amount.

Wrong. They're going down due to Udraw. Homefront hit a million mark in sales so it wasn't that bad of an investment.

#127 Posted by MACog (61 posts) -

They have updated the bundle with Titan Quest and the expansion for Red Faction

#128 Posted by Vexxan (4614 posts) -

Paid $10 for the bundle on the first day so pretty to just re-visit that unique link they send to the buyers and just generate codes for those 2 new items they added.

#129 Posted by Phatmac (5728 posts) -

Does anyone want the DLC to Red Faction: Armageddon? No? Ok.

#130 Posted by ShaggE (6712 posts) -

I was wondering if they'd add a game or two, as is customary for these bundles. Good to see they chose Titan Quest, a game I've wanted to try for awhile. Not so hot on the RF:A DLC, but I'm not exactly going to complain. Besides, that game isn't as bad as I thought it would be. It's certainly not GOOD, but I've played far worse.

#131 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2030 posts) -

Eh, I already own TQ and that RF DLC does not interest me. Steam Giveaways ahoy!

@ShaggE: I went into Red Faction, saying "how bad can it be?"

Then Cooldude Brofist started talking, and I knew. I've played 3 hours, but I just don't know how much Coolbro I can handle. Some really bad voice acting all around, not to mention how literally I should've taken Brad's warning about fighting so many of those red guys. They're fucking everywhere, and they never stop coming.

#132 Edited by Nardak (583 posts) -

Unfortunately 1 million copies sold wasnt enough to make Homefront successful as a game.

Here is an article from Industrygamers on the Homefront: http://www.industrygamers.com/news/homefront-needs-to-sell-2-million-to-break-even-industry-shooting-itself-in-foot/

According to the article:

Our sister site GamesIndustry.biz is reporting that THQ has acknowledged that it needs to sell 2 million copies of its much-hyped shooter Homefront just to break even.

Speaking at the Wedbush Morgan conference last night, executive vice president and chief financial officer Paul Pucino noted that most new owned IP at THQ would need to hit this mark: "When you just think in terms or profitability, the owned IP, there's a threshold of break-even of about 2 million units per game, so you have to sell somewhere in the area of 2 million copies of a game like Homefront to break even. Once you get past that you're generating incremental operating margins as high as 60 per cent.

Also usually if a game is financially succesful the studio developing it isnt closed down by the publisher.

#133 Edited by ShaggE (6712 posts) -

@SirOptimusPrime: It's a podcast game for sure. Big McLargehuge's plight isn't exactly compelling, and those bugs don't really call for high strategy. But that magnet gun may be the best thing since the Gravity Gun, so I'm compelled to trundle on.

I think my main issue is the animation priority. Every animation seems to take a second too long, and it's weird how that little thing adds up to become super annoying. I can't even express what exactly it is that annoys me about it, but it gnaws at me while playing.

Also, the game isn't very well optimized, either. I'm not running a supercomputer here, but I shouldn't have the framerate issues that I do.

#134 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2030 posts) -

@ShaggE: The magnet gun was fun for a little while, but since the game really doesn't call for anything other "hold left mouse button" it just feels weird throwing these big generators at bugs when I can just shoot 'em a whole bunch. I especially hate how the maul just kind of hovers over/around every single enemy if you're aiming at a specific angle.

That's weird to hear about the framerate. I get occasional stutter on the cutscenes, but I'm getting a solid 60 on a mid-range setup (6850/Phenom II, dx11 + everything at high minus shadows and no AA @1600x900), so I dunno. Game does get weird hiccups every once and a while when I'm just doing sort of nothing.

#135 Posted by ShaggE (6712 posts) -

@SirOptimusPrime: Hmmm, maybe it's just me then. I'll mess with my drivers a bit later.

#136 Posted by superfunhappygun (87 posts) -

So Titan Quest and the DLC for Red Faction Armageddon have been added to the bundle, with teases of more content to be added.  Personally I'm hoping either Homefront or Saints Row 2 sneak their way into the bundle :D

What's been said/shown that teases of more content being added?

#139 Posted by superfunhappygun (87 posts) -
@Ducksworth: Jason Rubin tweeted this:" The THQ HumbleBundle now includes Titan Quest for those that donate higher than average. More titles to come???... "
@PollySMPS: I just want to try it, see what it's all about :)
#141 Posted by Ducksworth (662 posts) -

Was Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War always a part of the bundle? If not, just added!

#142 Posted by Vexxan (4614 posts) -

@Ducksworth: It was indeed added just now, the deal was already insane to start with but with all the extra games added afterwards it's just ridiculous.

#143 Posted by Doctorchimp (4055 posts) -

Man was kinda hoping they'd throw in that Titan Quest Expansion.

#144 Posted by Fattony12000 (7568 posts) -

SO.

MUCH.

VALUE.

#145 Posted by Subjugation (4741 posts) -

I love that I keep getting these emails notifying me that a new game has been added to the bundle. Best value EVER.

#146 Posted by BigBoss1911 (2543 posts) -

Quick question, i don't have a credit or debit card but can I use one of those online shopping cards to buy this?

#147 Posted by BeachThunder (12428 posts) -
#148 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

50 well spent, although I also already own Dawn of War(one of the only good DoW games that came out, before DoW2)  
So that's a code I guess, and it's just chilling in the matrix
