THQ’s recent financial troubles aren’t a secret to anybody, but I didn’t realise we were at the point where buying their games was akin to giving away money to struggling indie developers. And yet, today, the internet is abuzz with the news of The Humble THQ Bundle, where you can get some of PC gaming’s biggest titles for basically nothing.
Check this: the bundle includes Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon, Company of Heroes, and its expansions Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor. If you pay $5.64 or more you’ll even unlock Saints Row the Third, one of the best and most stupidly fun games I’ve ever played. Oh, and you get all the soundtracks for free. Have you even heard the Saints Row soundtrack? That shiz is banging.
All the games redeem through Steam too, so there’s no need to download or install any wacky software — although, unlike previous Humble Bundles, there is no Linux or Mac support and, yes, Steam does mean DRM. This deal runs for the next 12 days, so get in before the average price goes up. Each of these games is worth at least $5 alone, and now you can get literally all of them for $5. I don’t understand, and I don’t care. Get in.
