    Humble’s got a sneakily good Bandai Namco build your own bundle going. If you add 3 to 5+ games from a select list, you get 80-85% off the SRP. That means Dragon Ball Fighterz is $15 by itself, or $9 with 4 other games. Oh, and apparently the Monthly 20% store discount applies, bringing that down to $7.20. AND you get a $3 credit for spending $30, $5 for $50. Some more examples (sale, 85%, 85%+20%):
    Code:
    21 13 10 Dark Souls 3 Deluxe
    27 12 10 Ni No Kuni Prince Edition
    20  9  7 SoulCalibur VI
    13  8  6 Tales of Berseria
    20  6  5 Tekken 7
    13  4  3 Tekken 7 Season Pass 1
    There’s also Dark Souls 2 SotFS / 3, Project Cars 2, Tales of Berseria / Vesperia / Symphonia, a bunch of anime properties (Naruto, One Piece, etc.), and some cheaper “filler” games (like Pac-Man CE 2) to get you to 85% off.

    https://www.humblebundle.com/store/promo/bandai-namco-games-byob/

    Alphabetical list (HIGHLY CAPITALIZED) here: https://gg.deals/bundle/the-humble-store-build-your-own-bandai-namco-bundle/

    Spend $30 and you could essentially get the $12 Monthly for half price plus an extra $3 to use in the store.

    Reddit thread:

    Bandai Namco does Humble Bundles every so often, including Monthlies (Dark Souls 2 & 3, God Eater 2, Berseria, Project Cars 1 & 2), so some of these may be bundled in the future.

    Super last second heads up: Humble Bundle is changing Humble Monthly to Humble Choice.

    I don't know if it starts with the new Monthly that starts later today (in 7 1/2 hours), or if we have another month before things change ("in 2019"), but they're phasing out the $12/mo plan for more expensive ones without the blind buy aspect. It looks like every month there'll be 10 games to choose from. People currently subscribed to the $12/mo plan will be grandfathered in and receive all 10 each month and up to 20% off games in their store. The new plans are $15/mo (or $135/yr if you pay in advance) for 3 games of the 10 and <=10% off in the store, or $20/mo (or $180/yr) for 9 games and <=20% off in the store. So, you pay more per game and for the same benefits, but you know what you're getting.

    You can pause your subscription (skip a month, so far potentially indefinitely but who knows if that'll change) at any time, which is why a grandfathered Classic plan is interesting. I guess the catch is, without knowing when they're changing things, you'd might want to subscribe to this month's Monthly (Crash and Spyro remastered trilogies and CoD:WW2) to ensure you don't miss the cut-off.

    Edit: Shenmue 1 & 2 was one of the reveals. Nice. Guess it was a retrospective month.

    Next month’s early reveals (guess Humble Choice hasn’t kicked in yet) are Yakuza Kiwami, Soul Calibur 6, and My Time at Portia. Bandai-Namco and Sega are very bundle friendly.

    Fanatical has two interesting bundles going:

    Retribution, which ends in 5 days, has two tiers (unlike Humble, you can't upgrade to a higher tier later):
    $1 / €1.1 / £0.95: The Uncertain: Last Quiet Day, Wings of Vi, and World's Dawn
    $4 / €4.4 / £3.8: adds Asterix & Obelix XXL 2, Bunker Punks, Crown of Leaves, Extinction, and Unexplored

    Renowned has no obvious end date, which either means it (or games within it) can expire at any time or it's one of their semi-permanent bundles:
    $4 / €4.4 / £3.8: Distrust, Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China, Odallus: The Dark Call, Rebel Galaxy, Renowned Explorers: International Society (free on Humble Trove), Signal from Tolva*, SimCity 4 Deluxe, Space Rangers HD: A War Apart

    Here are the relevant Reddit threads, full of opinions and Steam and ITAD links:



    * Davros might still be looking for this if you don't want it.

    Last reminder (for real this time) that Humble Monthly will become Humble Choice starting tomorrow, meaning more expensive. You have until early tomorrow to lock in a grandfathered Monthly plan and price. See two posts up for details.

    This last Monthly has Yakuza Kiwami, SoulCalibur VI, and My Time at Portia as the early unlocks. Be aware that if you subscribe now, you may not even be charged for this month, but may just lock in the price for next month. Just check what your welcome message says. You may have to do some extra clicking to get this month’s bundle, too.

    Supposedly the first month of Humble Choice has leaked:

    (Your choice of) Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Aegis Defenders, Ancestors Legacy, Blasphemous, Dark Future: Blood Red States, Dead in Vinland, Desert Child, Horizon Chase Turbo, Phantom Doctrine, Void Bastards, X-Morph: Defense.

    Edit: Looks like it’s Ancestors Legacy instead of Void Bastards. Steam links for all these games plus last month’s reveals:

    a little bit offtop, but epic seems interesting alternative to steam. steam games seem very linear except those few hidden gems that are hard to find

    Err, they're literally the same games except for the few (timed?) exclusives Epic bought. Not to mention the Epic platform itself is a steaming pile of ancient junk in terms of features, not to mention fancy bugs which allow you to play any Epic store game installed on the machine even if your account doesn't have said game.

    What does the type of game have to do with the store?

    Void Bastards

    ITAD (price histories for the games in the bundle)

    There's a lot of quality games in here (Hollow Knight!), some bundled for the first time (like Hand of Fate 2 and Void Bastards). This isn't quite Freedom Bundle value, but it might be the closest since.

    Edit: * It might be worth noting that the Freedom Bundle had limited keys for some games (e.g., Subnautica, I think at 30k keys), but it wasn’t mentioned at launch (to be fair, they sold over 130k bundles). In this case, a dev said Hacknet provided “a lot more than 5k keys.”

    Edit 2: They've sold 17k bundles in 14hrs.

    Humble has the Puppy Games Ultrabundle for $2.50 (Droid Assault, Revenge of the Titans, Titan Attacks, Ultratron) for another 21 hours. That's basically cheaper than any single game in this bundle has been for years, and a big drop from this bundle's typical $6 sale price. They look like twists on arcade classics, all with a similar art style. Steam links and price histories:
    https://isthereanydeal.com/specials/#/filter:id/465 (an olllld Humble Bundle with each game)
    https://gg.deals/pack/ultrabundle/?tab=include

    There's also a Europa Universalis IV Humble Bundle going on for another ~2 weeks. The "beat the average" tier 2 is ~$10 and seems to include most of the recommended DLC, though even the $17 tier 3 is a good deal if you want one or two of those DLC. Still, you can't beat the $1 tier 1 for value.

    Humble VR Bundle is crazy good value:

    $1 tier:
    • Cosmic Trip + OST
    • Smashbox Arena
    BTA ($13+ because everyone's getting tier 3) tier:
    • Budget Cuts
    • GORN + OST
    • Space Pirate Trainer + OST
    $15 (!) tier:
    • Moss
    • Superhot VR
    Remember you can use the sliders to change the proportion of what you pay that goes to Humble, the devs or the charity (down to the individual game or charity).

    Fanatical has some good bundles ending soon.

    Platinum Collection Build Your Own Bundle is $10 for 3 games from a decent list that includes Iconoclasts, Shadow Tactics and Book of Demons (which is also in this month's Humble Choice). Ends in ~2 days. https://isthereanydeal.com/specials/#/filter:id/8424

    Killer Bundle 12 Redux is $3.50 for Atari Vault, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, The Surge, Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap. https://isthereanydeal.com/specials/#/filter:id/8444

    Damn, I briefly got REALLY excited that this was a bundle for games by Platinum Games. :D Ah well, there's still some really good games in some of those bundles.

    Heh. Well, Bayonetta and Vanquish have hit $5 each before.

    There’s another day and a half for Humble’s Paradox build your own bundle. If you buy 5 games, you get 85% off the regular price of each. It’s like their earlier Bandai Namco sale. Buy a couple more expensive ones, add three ~$2 ones, and halve your price. Some sale —> 85% max discount prices (US $) examples:

    Battletech Mercenary Edition ~$27 —> $12
    Tyranny $13.5 —> $4
    Pillars of Eternity Definitive Ed. $12 —> $5.4
    Age of Wonders 3 Collection $15 —> $7
    Crusader Kings 2 Imperial Coll. $76 —> $33.8
    Europa Universalis 4 Coll. $45 —> $13.5
    Stellaris Galaxy Ed. $12 —> $7

    Humble has another racing bundle (MotoGP 15, MXGP, WRC 7, PCars 1 & 2, Dirt 4, Assetto Corsa, NASCAR Heat 4). $13/£10 top tier. PCars and Assetto are essentially the base games, not the complete/ultimate editions.

    ITAD price details

    Edit: Apparently there's no way to upgrade Assetto to the Ultimate Edition via Steam, per a Redditor:
    Edit 2: Apparently don't redeem the AC DLCs and you should be able to upgrade.
