I bought it, and I proceeded to uninstall most of it because I found it fucking annoying. Any piece of software that constantly flashes up adverts within Windows can die a massive great fucking death as far as I'm concerned.

I am disappoint.  Sounded good on paper. Ads to upgrade to the latest versions or ads for viagra?   :)

That was the last monthly Humble Bundle. Now replaced with Humble Choice.

 

I'm not sure if that's their strongest line up to start off with given the rise in price. At least, most are unknown to me so hopefully there's a hidden gem or two in there. Given I'm carrying on my old subscription, which gives me everything for cheaper, it's hard to give it up so soon.

It's actually one of the best line-ups they've had for me, precisely because it's filled with imperfect titles: it's mostly made up of games that I'd never quite got around to buying, because they sounded interesting but...

 

E.g. Blasphemous, which looked gorgeous but sounded a bit to old-school challenge-wise. Or Phantom Doctrine, which sounded like an interesting premise (Cold War via XCOM) but with apparently flawed execution. Or Dead in Vinland, a Viking clan management game (yay), but with survival game elements (yuck). Lots of curios for me to try! 

 

Also Tomb Raider, which can get in the sea.

I signed up to the monthly a month or so ago to get spyro the dragon and crash bandicoot for a tenner. I paused it last month and I'm not impressed by the games in the new humble choice list either. Maybe this is unfair on them, but I can't help but feel it's no better than what Epic give for free weekly and what twitch prime give for "free" every month.

There's Tomb Raider, but I have zero interest in that.

I guess PC is a tough market to run something like this. If it was a service for consoles (particularly switch) I'd happily bite at that price or higher for a bunch of random smaller games but on pc I'm too used to getting games for dirt cheap or more recently thanks to epic and twitch, free.

You got the games last week (unless you unlocked early), but they were announced four weeks ago. Now they've moved to Humble Choice they announce the games in advance rather than leaving the mystery, but functionally for subscribers it's not really that much different.

Worth noting for those on the humble classic plan that you get to redeem 10 games and there's 12 in the bundle (as opposed to last month's bundle that had 10). So don't go redeeming that Bad Jotunn game if you're like me and nearly forgot you got if for free on Epic last year.

Yep, be a little selective no matter what tier you're on. I would say that Two Point Hospital is an absolute essential for anyone with even a passing fondness for Theme Hospital, as it's a worthy follow-up to that game which improves on it in pretty much every way (except, perhaps, not quite matching all of its silly illnesses).

 

It's the opposite of the various "spiritual successors" to Dungeon Keeper (e.g. Dungeons) that have come out, as unlike them it really understands the spirit and humour of the original and how to build on it - presumably in large part thanks to the development studio founders including both the Project Leader and Lead Artist of Theme Hospital. So, yeah, if you don't already have it jump on that!

I'd get this for Two Point Hospital if I could afford it. Most wanted game I currently don't own.

 

Bad North and GRIP are good choices too if you don't own them.

I've unlocked this months Humble Choice. I should have a Two Point Hospital Key spare. You're welcome to it if you want.

The PC version has always been rock solid. It's just not RollCage :(

 

It lacks something that made Rollcage so good that's for sure. But I was on this during Early Access and enjoyed it very much. Less so on Switch, where you just couldn't see what was going on. 

 

I think that might be the issue. It like there was too much going on and it wasn't easy enough to see the track when going full pelt. That being said, it was still fun enough for my time spent with it.
