Good job posting the bundle so quickly so now I have a place to post, but I hope you'll fill in the details soon as I hate empty placeholder posts. It's a pretty simple bundle with only 7 games... should take you less than 1 minute to update the OP with useful info.

I'm not familiar with a single game except Rocket League in the top tier which has been cheaper from CDKeys. It turns out I only have Duck Game in the bundle. Lowest BTA seems to be hovering around $4.85. I'll do my usual lowball BTA lock-in and investigate the games to decide in the final hour before the bundle expires in 2 weeks.

I only have rocket league and duck game so a good bundle for me. Besiege always looked interesting although I would just be adding it to my backlog. The lowest I saw the bta was $4.85. Rocket league seems way overpriced at $14. cdkeys had it for less than $7 I think.

I was waiting for your post. I'm not surprised we both have Duck Game as we must've bought the same bundle with it long ago. I don't have Rocket League. How much did you pay for it and where/when? I think there was a $8-ish CDKeys deal recently, but that's just too expensive for me these days for a PC game. The only game on my PC list I'd pay over $10 for (or even $5) is Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and that will take quite a while.

So, you think Besiege looks good. Any opinions of the other games in this bundle as I sometimes need help deciding which tier and which games are worth getting?

Quite often when I watch the gameplay videos and skim the reviews, I end up with a mixed opinion and put a ? by those games. Low res graphics, poor textures, lack of controller support or reviews at mostly positive or less tend to make me question a game's value. The ones I mark with ? or that I don't want/have I leave the keys unrevealed. I don't know how many hundreds of unrevealed keys I have by now. I hope they don't expire (unlike my UV codes).

I got nearly all these games from previous Humble bundles. I wish they'd add more games they've never had before.

Your second sentence has been my desire of game bundles at every site for a couple years. I guess in the good old days we didn't have so many bundles and everything was new to us. Now it seems there are few bundles that the regular bundle buyers don't already have the majority of titles. Seeing an entirely new bundle is rare. Instead we get at least half games we already have, so I sometimes skip bundles or only buy the $1 tier. I don't know if their bundle meetings are along the lines of "we have so many keys of these old games let's just keep repackaging them in new bundles until they're gone" or "we can't afford to get very many new games". Fanatical has some decent bundles, but IndieGala's bundles have devolved into almost pure indie garbage... stuff I wouldn't even take for free.

I've bought many HBs in the past and I only have Duck Game, so either you bought higher tiers that I didn't, or you're thinking of other sites too if you have most of these games.

Will these Multiplayer games die if they don't want to pay for servers cost?

Besiege and Hover look good to me and I've heard of Tumblestone. I've only played rocket league against bots on easy and I still suck lol. Cdkeys had it for $6.70 or less. The other 2 games don't look bad either. To be honest I thought I had a few of these games but I was wrong.

BTA $4.85 was a good price for Besiege. Everything else is a bonus. Steam backlog, yay!

Dude.
In the time it took you to type that, you could have easily provided info in a Wiki.
You could contribute more than just paragraphs of random information.

Mirroring your comments to me...

Dude.
In the time it took you to type your response, you could have nearly updated your OP with the 7 games included in the bundle. You could contribute more than just a placeholder post.

Though I already typed up the info in my notes (7 games took me barely 30 seconds to type) and I could easily paste that into the Wiki in a matter of seconds (a fraction of the time to write this paragraph), purely out of principle I've decided I'm not going to do the jobs of OPs who make placeholder posts with nothing more than a link. It has nothing to do with you specifically. Placeholder posts which don't get updated have always bothered me, and I commented in the last HB I would not post any more HBs. Also, if I didn't post my spewage (and if balloonshark didn't post), most HB threads would nearly be empty. My spewage helps bundles look more popular than they really are. ;-)

Yeah, you're helping us all, lol.


EDIT - The main point of my posting the "deal" was to educate when these go live rather than others not posting them in hopes that the BTA stays low. It's a link, you click it.

I don't want to argue with you as I know you're trying to help, and I support fellow gamers like you in the quest to share info. I've mentioned the time bundles start in some past threads, and it's not too hard to figure out by looking at the HB bundle clock, but it never hurts to mention it again. I would expect most people should know these things by now, but I guess there are always newbies.

I like to have HB bundles posted on SD as a place to discuss the games and see what others think. I don't need the thread to know when or what's in a bundle since I can do that myself. However, almost all past HB posts list the games and the tiers in the OP so I've come to expect that. I know Reddit has discussion boards on every bundle, and I suppose I could join there but that place has a horrible indented layout and it's even worse in terms of ADD... I think every post is 1-2 sentences long max or the teenagers who read there start having seizures. My posting 1-2 paragraphs would be totally ignored on Reddit (or at least cause a bunch of seizures) whereas on SD at least some people read my spewages. :-) Sorry if I'm old and set in my ways. Anyway, it's not worth making a mountain out of a molehill. At least you posted the thread which is good because I won't post HBs any more.
