Humble Very Positive Bundle 2
It’s that time of the week again… time for another fun Humble Bundle to make the gaming backlog cry while making your wallet smile for the low price you paid. well, provided you don’t decide to invest in the $80 tier this time around. The Very Positive bundle focuses on Steam games that have Very Positive review ratings on Steam. This bundle may not be the biggest around, but you can be sure you’re getting some quality titles.
Rive: Wreck, Hack, Die, Retry
Some of this might be obvious from the game’s subtitle, but Rive is a difficult shooter in which you’ll rain bullet hell down on your enemies, hack robots, and die. A lot. Rive is challenging but has a satisfying reward loop that will keep you from getting too frustrated and coming back for more.
Neon Chrome is a shooter rogue-like title that isn’t very neon or chrome, but that’s quite alright for someone like me (bright colors can cuz me motion sickness). Go through procedurally levels, inevitably die, purchase permanent upgrades and try again. Any fan of rogue-likes will likely enjoy this title.
Hope you like rogue-likes, as Dungeon Souls is another one for this $1 tier! Dungeon Souls, not to be confused with Dark Souls, does not have procedurally generated dungeons, but death does make you lose most of your progress. However, you do earn character bonuses and coins to get advantages in new runs, so there is always a sense of progress here.
Beat the Average Tier
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition
Shadow of Mordor made huge waves when it originally released, with its Nemesis system giving players a real game rival to pursue and fight against. If you haven’t picked up this game, now’s a perfect chance, as the Game of the Year edition also comes with the Shadow of Mordor season pass.
Ultimate Chicken Horse
Ultimate Chicken Horse may be a weird name, but it’s also a great game to play with friends… well, good friends, as this is the type of party game that can ruin friendships. You and up to three friends work together to get past platforming challenges… but with a point system in place, there’s an incentive to screw over the people you’re supposed to work with in order get ahead.
Oxenfree is an adventure type horror game. Think a bit like Until Dawn, but far less campy and more serious. Oxenfree pulls you in with its great writing and cast of characters, who have to survive when they somehow open a rift to another ghostly dimension.
Death Road to Canada
Oregon Trail meets rogue-like, Death Road to Canada has you controlling two players as they try to make the road trip from Florida to Canada in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Obviously easier said than done, as you’ll run into a lot of opposition along the way. If you liked Organ Trail (no, I didn’t spell Oregon incorrectly this time), Death Road to Canada is worth a play.
Beat Cop is a non-linear adventure game set in the 80s. You were framed with a murder, and as such lost job as a detective and instead are just a regular beat cop now. Try to find who framed you so you can get back to the big cases… but don’t get killed or neglect your day-to-day duties along the way.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War
Pre-order, comes with a T-shirt
Have you been meaning to pre-order Shadow of War on Steam, but haven’t gotten around to it yet? Your procrastination has paid off, as the $80 tier of this bundle will net you all of the above games, a pre-order for Middle-earth: Shadow of War (out next month), and an exclusive t-shirt. The price might seem a little steep at first glance, but if you factor in all the other games and the shirt, it’s not a bad deal at all if you planned on pre-ordering the game on PC in the first place!
