I think this bundle had the fastest drop I've ever seen from $6 to $3.05, and it has been pretty stable there since. I think that means almost everyone is buying the $1 tier. I heard Screencheat isn't very good, and I already have Hand of Fate.

As usual I'll put in my placeholder penny and figure it out later. I have too much other stuff to do today to deep-investigate the other games now.

Also, I hate how HB doesn't link to the Steam page so you have to search manually, and sometimes the games have multiple titles. For instance, recently they had Fallen Enchantress in the Stardock Bundle. However, there is no game with precisely that name... was it the Ultimate Edition or the Legendary Heroes Edition? HB may not care to tell us, but it might matter to some people. Bundlestars and IndieGala have always linked to Steam, but HB still doesn't. LAZY.

Just an FYI but IGN acquired HB this week. I'm betting many are paying a $1 or less because they are not happy with IGN. IGN will get your personal data as well as some of your linked steam account data.

That's good to know, but I disconnected my Steam account from HB over a year ago. So what will IGN get besides name, address, phone number, and which bundles I bought?

It's already too late for my address and phone number. I get dozens of spam phone calls per day so I put it on 4 rings, left a "screw you if you're a telemarketer" voicemail, and I never answer my phone if I don't recognize the number. Such is life in the modern world. Not once in my life have I bought anything via a telemarketer and I never will. Unfortunately my greedy ISP charges a large monthly fee to block numbers and area codes.

Hurtworld, don't remind us. I have most of these games from previous humble bundles. Armello was in the July(Dark Souls II) Monthly Bundle. That game is two years old now so its harder a special deal, I've seen it at that price before.
I'll pay $1 however since the only games I don't have are The Warlock of Firetop Mountain [steampowered.com] & Screencheat [steampowered.com] and they looks good.

I'm going to have to read that 1 article in depth. I'm familiar with IGN because they have reviews of some games that I have read, but I never use IGN for any other purpose so I wasn't aware of their "bad rep". I'm not sure what they have done to make people hate them, but if they are as bad as they say then I think soon they will take away the ability to lock in the BTA with a penny on all bundles or even pay less than $1. If people really are paying 1 penny in protest, then that 100% guarantees the ability to pay under $1 will be taken away very soon.

This also worries me that maybe they will start to take away the DRM versions they provide (none of which I ever downloaded) or even expire keys we have not yet redeemed from old bundles. Does anyone think that's likely?

Hiccup, try Bundlestars next. I would have said IndieGala a year ago, but they have had so much shovelware garbage lately that I buy 1 out of 20 bundles and it's mostly a waste of a few minutes of my time to read each of the Steam reviews and glance at the gameplay. It's almost like IndieGala seeks out the absolute worst games on Steam to bundle in pure garbage bundles, like low res blocky games or horror/walking simulators that look like they were written by teenagers. Bundlestars tends to have a bit better bundles, but some shovelware thrown in too. Are there any other sites? I've heard of Groupees, but never used it.

Bundlestars is pretty solid most of the time on it's deals.
