Free Month of Humble Choice
Apparently, when I picked up the COVID bundle (mainly for some comics), I also received a free month of Humble Choice. I got the email, and decided to redeem it and see what it was all about. I picked up:
- Gris: This was on my wishlist, but was one I decided not to pick up during the LudoNarraCon sale, so I obviously had to pick it up from Humble Choice.
- Hitman 2: I’ve wanted to try out the series eventually, and it was there, so I figured might as well get it.
- This is the Police 2: This is not up my alley at all, but it was on Manthing’s wishlist, so I gifted it to him.
- Opus Magnum: Another one not particularly up my alley, so I gifted it to another friend who had it on their wishlist.
- Truberbrook: It looks interesting, and it seems to be an alternate reality type of story, which I generally enjoy.
- The Bard’s Tale IV: This was another game that looks interesting to try, though at first it didn’t seem like something that would be up my alley. I think that since it’s turn-based rather than real-time, that will assist in my enjoyment of it.
- Driftland: Another one I had no interest in (RTS really isn’t my thing), but it was on yet another friend’s wishlist, so I gifted it to them as well.
- Molek-Syntez: Another one I could care less about, but I knew my best friend would enjoy it. So off it went to them!
I still haven’t decided what to use my last choice on. None of them thrill me. So I might just keep it at hand and spoil yet another friend or such later on with a final choice from April’s choices. So, did this free month sell me on picking up Humble Choice every month? Probably not, unless I can see choices ahead of time, even when I’m not subscribed (which it seems like I can do, as Humble lists them out on their blog). I may pick up a month here and there if enough of the games interest me, but I see it being something that rarely happens.
Square Enix Collective Bundle
I also pulled the trigger on picking up the Humble Square Enix Collective Bundle, which includes
- Oh My Godheads: I’m not particularly interested in this one, so I’ll probably add it to my spreadsheet of codes I won’t redeem for a giveaway somewhere at some point.
- Goetia: This one looked intriguing!
- Octahedron: I won’t play platformers, and the lighting from the trailer hurt my head, so I know I wouldn’t last very long in the game. I do enjoy the soundtrack, but again, this will end up in my spreadsheet of codes.
- Deadbeat Heroes: Nope, not my thing, to the spreadsheet it goes.
- The Turing Test: Yes! Yes yes yes! Oh my, yes! I’m looking forward to playing this one!
- Forgotton Anne: Okay, I know I just said I won’t play platformers… but this is really just an anime with visual novel and light platformer elements so I’m willing to give it a shot.
- Fear Effect Sedna: I’m intrigued and will try it, but I’m sure I’ll suck because I’m terrible at stealth mechanics.
- Black the Fall: Described as a game where you “take your shot at overthrowing a Communist State inspired by real world events”. Which is why I probably won’t touch the game, to be honest. The closer something is to real life, I’m not interested in it right now.
- Children of the Zodiarcs: The premise of the game is interesting, and I’ll give it a try, but I’m not sure how much I’ll actually play the game.
- Boundless: I will probably never open this game up, let alone redeem it.
- Tokyo Dark: YES! Anime cut scenes, visual novel, what looks like actually good localization, horror genre, and puzzles? SOLD! To be fair, I mainly got the bundle for this game alone.
- Battalion 1944: Yet another game that will go into the spreadsheet.
Are you digging any of the Humble bundles lately? I also picked up the Johnathan Hickman bundle when it was released, myself.
