THQ Humble Bundle
I'm sorry for spamming your Steam, but I just wanted to make a quick announcement about this.
As many of you may already know, the THQ Humble Bundle is available for the next 12 days at humblebundle.com
As with all Humble Bundles, you pay what you want for the games. For as little as 1 US dollar you get Steam codes for the following games:
- Company of Heroes (plus both expansions, Opposing Fronts & Tales of Valor)
- Red Faction: Armageddon
- Metro 2033
A portion of the money goes to THQ, and the rest goes to charity and the Humble Bundle guys (you can select how much goes to whom). If you pay over the average donation (currently around $5.70) you also get Saints Row: The Third (which is one of the best GTA clones out there, I actually prefer it to GTA4).
I just wanted to let you guys know about this, firstly because it's a great deal however you look at it... but also because Company of Heroes is one of the best RTS games ever made, and I feel that anybody who likes realtime strategy games should try it at least once. Even after 7 years, the multiplayer community for CoH is still going strong. In terms of actual strategy in an RTS game, I still think that no game really comes close to CoH, even games with sizeable pro scenes like Starcraft 2 (which is generally more focused on mechanics and deathballing).
You'll also be doing THQ a favour, as they're currently a little fucked financially.
You can pay via Paypal or Amazon payments, so even for us guys in China it's still easy to pay with your non-Chinese credit/debit card. I can also confirm that all the games work on Steam in China.
If anybody wants to play some CoH, hit me up on Steam and I'll be happy to show you the ropes! Like all good games it's easy to learn but tough to master.
