Humble Monthly Gamble Discussion Thread

Sniper looks like a bargain bin game, and Shenmue III was such a flop that my instant reaction to this bundle was massive disappointement.

But Main Assembly looks neat. So does In Other Waters. My partner was about to buy Aven Colony last night, too (until we saw the price).

So yeah I'm not too sure about this one. A big fat "maybe".

Definitely a pause for me.

Yep, pause for me too.

Upon reconsidering...

This is not a great bundle for me. It's been a long time since I've felt excited about these, and that's a shame.

May 2021 games:

Metro Exodus
Darksiders Genesis
Hellpoint
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3
Levelhead
Fury Unleashed
Size Matters
Morkredd
Relicta
Retimed
Family Man
Vane

Looks like another month, another pass.

Yup, definitely a pass here. I think I'm finally at a point of just cancelling outright. I have more games than I have time to play as it is, and tossing more on the pile isn't healthy at this point. I didn't want to give up that classic choice account, but the truth is there just hasn't been a month where I was interested in more than 3 games since they changed everything up. And even those months are rare.

I'm loosely interested in Hellpoint (I do love some soulsy stuff) and Metro Exodus. Darksider's Genesis was appealing until I realized it was more like the original games and not a ARPG like I assumed.

I'd probably get my money out of it, but I'm struggling to want to pay for more games when I have Game Pass and a solid backlog already.

I've just reached a breaking point with so many games. So often I get intrigued, buy a bundle, and never play a damn thing.

I played a couple hours of Darksiders Genesis in Co-op. It felt action-RPGish along the lines of Marvel Ultimate Alliance. But.... It's also on Gamepass.

Ha! Well there you go

Another month another pause.

I'm not overly enthused about this month, but I still have 4 months remaining pre-paid from a few years ago and I kinda just want to get rid of them so I can stop paying attention to Humble Choice. Also, Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3 should be pretty fun for a few minutes, and I might even try Hellpoint.

The version of Metro: Exodus in the bundle will get the upgrade to the Enhanced Edition, which is cool. There's at least one or two other games in there that I'm interested in that I'll pick this month up.

Even if I pause most months there is one good thing about being subbed. I am more reluctant to buy smaller games, because “maybe” they will show up on Humble some day. Kinda similar with PSN plus too.

Watched some videos and nothing is really grabbing me so I jumped on the pause wagon.
