theres really no excuse to not have metro 2033 and darksiders after this. saints row 3 is supposed to be good so Ill give it a try, and company of heroes and red faction armagedon is good as well.

darksiders in particular is one of the best franchises started this gen. their blatant console ports, but it doesnt make them any less enjoyable if you have a controller.

I have half the games in this bundle, but I got it anyway because I would be really sad to see THQ go under. They are one of the few AAA publishers that I have any respect for anymore.

Wow, that's actually a good deal for all those games! Too bad I have almost half of those, might just buy the bundle anyway :3

If people really cared for THQ you should be buying darksiders 2 at retail price, as to they only made 1.5 million, and needed to make over 2 million to break even.

I posted the last without refreshing the browser, and everything is a tad low since I'm downloading all this stuff, so I hadn't seen your comment, hasten.

hasten, I agree. I am very very lonely and I definitely do suck. I am curious about what aspect of my profile pic clued you in. I am flattered that you mentioned me and looked at my profile pic. Thanks for that, at least. :)

[citation][nom]jhansonxi[/nom]Not cross-platform. A few work on Wine but I'd rather wait.[/citation]
i doubt any of these games will be ported over to linux or mac. theyre quite old. waiting wont do any good.

[citation][nom]wtf123abc[/nom]No Warhammer seriesGuess it's just the crappy shit games that make no money that's on sale.[/citation]

Yeah, it's not like one of the games is used on a regular basis as a TomsHardware benchmark game or anything.

[citation][nom]wtflol123[/nom]I wasn't aware everything had to be about benchmarking you fucking beloved patriot.[/citation]

And I wasn't aware a game had to center around the Warhammer universe to be considered a good game, you pleasant gentleman.

Sadly, I am away from my desktop computer and will be away from it for another month or two so I would be unable to play most games that I buy. So I'll be skipping this bundle. My backlog of games to play on the PC is already too long. :(

[citation][nom]dormantreign[/nom]Thanks Toms, I just bought 5 sets. I gave THQ the funds because of Titans Quest which is still one of my fav games.[/citation]

That's a really unfortunate example, since THQ's handling of that game effectively killed that game's developer... (at least they went indie and have Grim Dawn in development.)

However, I'm still a big fan of THQ and really hope they survive this. Warhammer games are always pre-order purchases for me.

I think everyone agrees that THQ can be anything but humble, and that this may probably be a bad brand move from the Humble (Indie) Bundle guys. Nonetheless, it's a very good offer that might make other big companies think about it (i.e. EA is selling old games for a lot of money on its digital store).

BTW, the sequel of Titan Quest is actually named Grim Dawn. They did a Kickstarter -and me among thousands of people put money in- some months ago after they had a running alpha; they're also accepting pre-purchases right now. Just Google for it :)

So...um...you mean the Grim Dawn I mentioned in the post you quoted?
