Humble Bundle Weekly Sale - Team 17

Worms has been one of the greatest games since my childhood. So for me, this is one of the best bundles I've seen for the Humble Weekly sales. A large chunk of Team 17's game collection is now in one bundle. Even though I already own most of these games, I'll get that first part of the bundle just for Worms Armageddon and Super Frog HD.

Humble Bundle no longer gives everyone steam keys. Instead you must now link your humble bundle account / purchase to your steam account. Basically you will have to give humble bundle access to your steam account and then they redeem the keys for you on your account. Its to prevent selective game gifting and reselling of purchased bundles. But I don't think I like the idea that humble bundle will have that kind of access to my account.

(Edit)

 

This does not affect previous purchases. All those are still steam keys that can be redeemed. But starting with the Team 17 bundle, it requires this steam connection to redeem your games.

I looked into this some more after seeing a noticeable amount of complaints on twitter about it. Turns out, you log in to humble's site, connect it to your steam profile.. it has no access to your personal info, it only has access to add games. Once the games are added, you can go back to humble's site and then unlink your steam account from them. They only need the access long enough to add the games, which is more understandable now. Turns out when they did that Origin bundle, quite a few people were buying the bundles in bulk for the minimum amount and then selling them online for a large profit. It also turns out that its been going on for quite a while. People trading and selling extra steam keys they have from previous humble bundles. It was always in their terms that those games were supposed to be for those individuals only and not for sale or gifting. We could buy gift bundles for people, but I think just about everyone gave away some extra steam keys from bundles at some point.

Even with this explanation I rather not go through the process of adding then removing my Steam Account every time I donate. They should've just made the minimum $10 or above average in order to get Steam Keys.

Thats a good point. A higher minimum would have definitely deterred resellers. If anything, the minimum $1 should probably get bumped up to $5 also. But honestly, if they did that they'd probably loose a lot of sales. Unless there is a game in the bundle I actually want to pay $5 for I'd be more hesitant to give them $5+ for games I might not even want to try or have time to play. But with the humble bundles getting better quality games, they could potentially drop this new steam connection method and just increase their prices instead. Other bundle sites don't have nearly as many good bundles, but all of theme still give out steam keys. All of those sites were obviously inspired by humble bundle and based off the same donation method. If this steam connect redemption sticks, then it could roll out to all the other bundle sites too.

 

I think its stupid though. I've bought a digital game off amazon before.. when I went to download it they gave me a steam key. No steam connection required. Amazon has some good digital sales sometimes where people could pick up steam keys for $10 and the next day the same game is back up to $40, but I don't see amazon wanting to connect to my steam account. If anything, I think humble bundle is over reaching a bit.

 

Instead, they could have all the games in their bundle combined into a single steam key and when someone redeems it, it says right on the steam client "Thank you for purchasing a humble bundle, if you bought this from a third party you were most likely ripped off." If its all one steam key, it'd make it impossible for anyone to resell just 1 game out of the bundle or gift games they already own too.

      Tuesday my favorite festival of all time for GW2 comes back. I'm more hyped to play than I have been in a very long time. I was a n00b when this festival first debuted, and I'm sure a lot of nostalgia boosts it's memory for me, but even then, I remember feeling that Halloween and Wintersday paled in comparison. When the year spun back around and it didn't come back I was disappointed. Labyrinthine Cliffs is going to be much easier to traverse without the need of the aspect crystals, but the Dolyak Race should still be funny. I'm looking forward to the additions they've made, and I'm ready to grind out Boss Blitz. I hope they've scaled up the bosses properly and made the rewards worth grinding so it doesn't become a ghost town if people go back to Istan.

      Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.
