    Apparently the March Humble Monthly reveals have leaked (that's right, view > page source), if you're on the fence:

    These bundles used to kick ass. Now it's mostly stuff like the first game in that list which has worse graphics than cruisin USA.

    I thought the Yakuza 0 bundle (two months ago) had some great reveals, but, yeah, the reveals can be hit or miss. The bundles are still great if you think of them as a historical low price for just the headliners with the reveals as a bonus. (Granted, the headliners aren't exactly brand new and usually don't include DLC. I got Dark Souls 3 and a DLC in a Monthly for $12, and the other DLC hasn't gone on sale for less than $6.)

    If anyone's interested in Age of Decadence and didn't get that sweet Reaper bundle from a few posts up, it's in a new bundle with its combat-only spin-off Dungeon Rats and three other games for $4: https://www.fanatical.com/en/bundle/fantasy-legends-bundle

    Just decided to get the humble monthly AC:O bundle. The freaking U-play launcher immediately crashes anytime I try to launch it. Yay?

    So, I can no longer ever access the copy of FarCry 3 that I bought on Uplay because they lost my original account. An account that must somehow still be there because I couldn't use my e-mail address to start up a new account. So, I had to make a new account to play The Division which I got on Steam. And now I can't play either that or AC:O (has to be redeemed through Uplay) because the launcher just crashes whenever it's started.

    What a piece of dung. :p

    Regards,

    Did you try completely uninstalling, checking for any leftover data and purge?

    That's what I'm working on now. Why can't they make a working launcher like Blizzard or Valve? Gah. This is a royal PITA.

    If anyone here wants Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Standard Edition (a Battle.net key), just a reminder that it's in Humble Bundle's June Monthly Bundle along with probably 5 or 6 mystery indie games (these should be Steam keys) for $12 until Friday, June 7th 10am Pacific. Don't forget to check out the Trove if you subscribe. It's DRM-free downloads of a bunch of quality older games (e.g., Soma, Limbo, Super Meat Boy, Hacknet, Tacoma, Orwell, The End Is Nigh, Torchlight, Indy Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, X-Wing / vs. Tie Fighter): https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly/trove

    FYI, there are some region restrictions for BlOps 4.

    If you've never subscribed to the Monthly before, use a friend's referral link (it's in their account settings page) when you do to give them some store credit. Or PM me if you want mine.

    Whoa that's cheap.

    One additional piece of info, if you already own some of the things in the collection, Steam will automatically remove those from the cost calculations. So for me, for example, the collection would only be 4.32 USD to grab all of the things that I don't already own on Steam.

    Good deal, and I like it when developers/publishers allow Steam to do that.

    I don't like it when there are good collection deals, but then the developer/publisher don't allow Steam to reduce the price based on things you already own from the collection.

    The "complete your collection" bundles are great, especially for DLC which nowadays isn't discounted as much as its base game.

    Speaking of cheap, Fanatical has a great new pick & mix bundle with a bunch of very well reviewed games. 3/$1.50, 6/$2.80, or 9/$3.60: https://isthereanydeal.com/specials/#/options:pending;/filter:id/7470


    Seriously, Homeworld: Remastered for 50ยข.

    Edit: PSVR users in the US, The Invisible Hours (also in this bundle) is $5 used at GameStop (or $10 with three other <=$5 games).

    Humble Monthly subscribers, The Sexy Brutale is in the Trove.
