Humble and Indie Launch Their Latest Bundles of Fun
Posted on March 27, 2013 9:00 AM by Rob Williams
We posted last week about the Humble Bundle’s latest addition of a weekly sale, and one thing that story immediately brought to mind is that we’d be hearing from these guys a lot more often. The weekly sales, after all, are not meant to replace the usual bundles when there’s a lull, but rather act as a supplement. This week, we get our first taste of what it’s like to have two Humble Bundles to choose from at once.
In the first corner, we have the “Mobile Bundle” – oddly-named given the games only work for Android. The games here include Plants vs. Zombies, Contre Jour, Anomaly Korea and Bladeslinger. Pay more than the average, and you also score Metal Slug 3 and The Room. If mobile – ahem, Android – isn’t quite your thing, the latest Weekly Sale might appeal to you more.

In this corner, a revived THQ. Well – its latest games, at least. Those who pay at least $1 will score the original Darksiders and Red Faction: Armageddon, while those paying more than the average will also gain Red Faction Guerrilla and a personal favorite, Darksiders II (our review here). You can take advantage of these deals at the usual spot.
It’d be a little unfair to ignore the latest Indie Royale bundle, which also launched this week. Called “The Mighty Bundle”, this one includes Waveform (Win, Mac, Linux), Avadon: The Black Fortress (Win, Mac, Linux), Zafehouse: Diaries (Win), Derrick the Deathfin (Win, Mac), Tidalis (Win, Mac) and War of the Human Tanks (Win). Bonuses include a hint book for Avadon, and an official soundtrack for War of the Human Tanks. Pay $8 or more, and you earn a chiptunes album called “Chiptunes 2012”, produced by Darkman007.
With deals like these, your excuses for not having a game to play are null and void.
