Ultimately I'm just making more room to add actually useful functionality there going forward.

This is great but it'll be hard getting used to it after so long with the alternative

Only issue I really have is I see no Zwei: II on that wishlist

I think I've made Talion strong enough to take on most captains in this game since i unlocked the stun to rapid sword attack now.

The ice one? That one is good.

Oops I bought TEW2 before I finished MESOW.

Oh man, Humble was the only place I got bundles from, for the last year or something. Also been buying more and more new games from them, that 10% off is pretty sweet.

So, best case, they have a lot more weight behind them to secure better bundles.

So what's the worst case?

BTW do you think PS2 emulation will get farther ahead in coming months? PS3 emulation is progressing quite well, but it seems some PS2 games still aren't properly emulated.

Yup, in this game it seems they renamed it into an ice attack. One thing I found hilarious was that the ground punch special attack can now BURN enemies. This can be disadvantegous in case an enemy captain isn't weak to it :P

Judging by updates - not any time soon =( Maybe devs should start Patreon campaign on something..

Being snapped up by a multi-national publicly-traded company tends to change priorities somewhat - you're now accountable to shareholders, obviously, and typically driven predominantly by profit.

I don't particularly see strong synergies here - IGN/Ziff Davis slap links on their pages that link directly to the Humble store, driving sales, while Humble benefits from IGN's marketing push? Is that it? Perhaps J2 see an opportunity to bring the running of Humble in-house and do so more cheaply with their resources while increasing profits? I dunno... will be very interesting to see how this plays out, and to see if the charity aspect that has been synonymous with Humble is maintained long-term.

I wonder if they'll build in their tip into every bundle now (so you no longer have the option to not give it to them).

Anyone played the Overgrowth story mode? Surprisingly the one Iím most excited for, the combat is so different and brutal and Iím hoping itís longer than the first game.

Yeah I can see how being forces to concentrate much more on profit is going to shift the mindset over at humble. While charity hasn't been so much in focus it was always still a huge part of everything humble, so one downside I can see is IGN "encouraging" which charities to be available.

So, Megaton Rainfall was supposed to come out September 26th on PS4 and then October 26th on Steam.
But the PS4 version was delayed to October 17th... And now the Steam version is delayed to November 17th.
I guess it's another case of money hat. Dev said they were on contract with Sony in an interview.

I used to check IndieGala and Bundlestars a few times a week for new bundles, but they both kind of dried up, so yeah, I'm right there with you as far as Humble being the last bundle site I'm really interested in.

I can't think of any specific examples off the top of my head, but there's just the feeling that whenever a buyout like this happens, it's never for the better.

On the Humble topic, this quote is a telling one, at least to me:

"Because of the shared vision and overlap of our customer bases, there’s going to be a lot of opportunities."

Is there really that much of an overlap? I know of very few PC folk that are keen on IGN. Of course this is an "opportunity" to expose those people to IGN when they otherwise would avoid it, and of course the Doritos meme is here, but I really wouldn't be surprised to see these kind deals infect the bundles and store moving into the future.

I expect nothing less than this with additional Doritos

Nice...but bad times. I'm sending my mobo away and gained one of the of the new Intel mobos, so I can't use the thing till November or whenever the 8th series of processors launch in the UK.

South Park is a straight Ubisoft game now right? So retail codes are uplay? Just recall how odd SoT was since you could buy the game on Uplay and still get a steam key (thatís how I got it when it included Lara Croft)

Yep.

I think the reason it was different for the first game was because THQ already sold steamkeys before the game was sold out to Ubi, but i might be mistaken

I just pulled the trigger on a year of Humble Monthly, since I've picked up every one so far minus one, and regretted it hard when I missed it.

And now this. Considering a refund to go back to monthly so I can bail when the fuckery begins.

At the final boss of Momodora IV, pretty tough fight but I'll get it tomorrow. Wonderful game. Each area felt unique and you move through them at a brisk pace. Took me 5 hours to reach the final boss and that felt like the perfect length. Really enjoyed my time with it.

That's the entirety of my impressions.

Oh wait, it also runs surprisingly well on my Alienware Steam Machine!

Hellblade seems to resonate with so many people, but I was in the minority that didn't care for it at all. I get that story and narrative is the main focus, but the gameplay itself was very repetitive, from the combat to the puzzles. And if I'm honest even the story didn't do that much for me. I was glad to be done.
