The first Humble Monthly Bundle has finally been released and the games list is confirmed as:
- Saints Row IV
- Valkyria Chronicles
- Lethal League
- SanctuaryRPG: Black Edtion
- Towerfall Ascension
- Legend of Grimrock 2
So for $12 a month Humble Monthly will grant you a specifically chosen selection of seven games, though I don’t know if the amount of games is set and Legend of Grimrock 2 was an incentive for subscribing. The bundle is composed of popular and/or well received games in their respective genres. The age, visual styles and target audience vary wildly and good chance that not everything will be your cup of tea.
My Steam library is thin but I do own two of these games on the PlayStation. It feels like avid gamers will likely own one or more of these games in the bundle as not everything is obscure but $12/month for seven games is good value. This probably beats Steam sales in value (never bought from Steam sales) even though you may not have bought all of these games in the first place.
The Humble Monthly really seems geared to gamers with smaller libraries or ones who don’t want to spend too much money but still wanting to play games. It’s understandable if you don’t want to chance having any of the games already or getting anything that just don’t care for. If are stuck with an extra download code you can give it away to friends or strangers. Humble Bundle is about charity right?
