Honestly no I wouldn't. There are some great games in there for sure, but the prices some are high enough to make the total value/price a bit steep in my opinion. You're better off just getting a couple of the great ones. There are so many games in this pack that there's no reason to get them all at once unless it was an amazing deal.
Instead do something like this for the time being (Shank 2 is fun, Dungeon Defenders is awesome, and I'm sure the others are good as well). Pay (at the time of this comment) $6.40 and you get everything. More money goes directly to the developers if you want it to and you support another online distributor as well (always good to have multiple avenues of distribution).
QFT. I've gotten most of the better games on there, and a bunch that aren't, from the various indie bundles, all for around $20. The Humble Bundle is hands down the best one out there (the one this time around is killer, all of those games look great). Indie Royal and Indie Gala are similar, but generally don't have games as good as the Humble Bundle.
It'll probably be at least 50% off at some point as a daily deal, maybe more. I did buy the other day so I didn't have to wait until (maybe) after my vacation time from work to actually play it. Very glad I did.
On another topic - what Fallout New Vegas DLCs do people think are the best? If they go on crazy sale I may pick a couple of them up in case I ever want to do a complete play through of that game again.
In order of my overall preference, from most to least:
-Old World Blues hands down the best value/most complete and most like a natural mechanics+lore expansion of Fallout NV. Very pulp scifi
-Dead Money would be my second pick, a fun/creepy/thrilling Fallout homage to Bioshock/survival horror
-Honest Hearts has nice outdoors/canyon visuals and fits with F:NV western flavor (think you as the lone cowboy in injun land). Mostly outdoor environments.
-Lonesome Road is really linear but I think it's got good drama in it, probably the most serious-aspiring of the 4 "story DLC". Considering that people probably go for Fallout for open world, nonlinear, LR is probably most jarring as far as mechanics goes, but I can still dig it for the drama story. I'd imagine the design team trying to channel some Modern Warfare action drama for storytelling and presentation.
I can't remember, but the lowest the complete set has gone was $7.50, and base game $5, so you really should just go for the whole shebang. You don't have to play them all, but NV and the DLC do kinda reference each other in the story/close up some plot threads. I forget the order that the DLC is meant to be played (release order), but it's not that confusing to do them in any order, story-wise.
But I'm pretty sure Lonesome Road is best played after you're done w/ NV and the other DLC--it feels most like a closing epilogue to the Courier story arc stretching back to the opening cutscene in NV.
