Humble SEGA Bundle leads the way with Total War and Alpha Protocol

I said the quality of the Humble Bundle offerings has improved lately, but not like this. In this week’s Humble Weekly Sale, it’s all about SEGA – and by God there’s no skimping on quality.

As is the case here, paying above the average unlocks a second tier of games, while the ultimate tier will cost you a reasonable amount of money.  For the first tier, pay any amount of money under US$5.99 and you’ll receive the following: Alpha Protocol, Company of Heroes, Rome: Total War and Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit.

The second tier of games, available at the Sydney-like coffee price of US$5.99 and above, contains The Typing of the Dead: Overkill, Binary Domain, Renegade Ops, Medieval II: Total War and 10 Classic SEGA Genesis Games, which itself includes Altered Beast, Comix Zone, Crack Down, Ecco the Dolphin, Gain Ground, Golden Axe, Golden Axe 2, Golden Axe 3, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master and Vectorman.

If that wasn’t fun enough, paying more than US$14.99 will also unlock access to Shogun II: Total War. When you think about it, that’s actually quite an expensive price for Shogun, a game that’s regularly appeared on sale for $5 or $10 during every Steam sale in the past couple of years. Mind you, when you combine it with the value elsewhere, it’s not such a bad deal.

So, what a bundle. It’s a shame there’s no Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed here: that’d be the ultimate offering. But if you’re not doing anything else this weekend, then this wouldn’t be a bad place to start.

I hope the charities and humble bundle make a shit tonne from this and I hope Sega doesn’t see a cent.

 

Be aware that each tier is a single “bundle” key.

So there’ll be no splitting up the games (outside of the tier level) to take what you want and share the excess with friends, which is a bit of a shame.
