Humble Square Enix Bundle

Recommended Posts

 

I've passed on buying bundles for a while now because with the backlog of games I have now, it seems almost pointless to buy any more games, even on sale. But I've always loved Square Enix RPGs such as Final Fantasy.. but this bundle is full of games from franchises I've never played. What do you guys think about this bundle? I might be interested in it depending on what games get added to it next Tuesday.

I would've thought about posting this later when they added the rest of the games if it wasn't posted about by then. But here are the ones I know.

  • Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - I got this free from Xbox's Games With Gold. I found it interesting as time waster until I got to the giant rolling pin of death.
  • Hitman: Absolution - I got this free from both PS Plus & Games With Gold. I've never played the other Hitman games which I've read are better. I've enjoyed this till I got lazy & refused to do a shooting gallery mini game. Just killing people with Piano Wire was way more fun for me.
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution - I got this free from PS Plus. I don't remember if it was the Director's Cut or not. I really enjoyed sneaking around during the tutorial. But after getting into the actual missions I had the urge to kill everyone with my robotic arms. I'm looking forward to becoming death proof & killing everyone with my robotic arms. Well assuming I can mod the PC version to do that.
  • Just Cause 2 - I got this free from PS Plus. And I have to say JC2 is way more fun than GTA5. JC2 even has similar gameplay mechanics to GTA5 minus submarines & sharks. But even better as JC2 has multiple islands so boats can have an actual use of getting somewhere. Its so huge it might make Skyrim feel bad about its Dragons you can only ride & its boats that are stuck in docking positions. JC2 makes cars surfing fun instead of a mini game like Saints Row because now you can shoot & not worry about falling off. JC2 has a grappling hook like Link & Batman, but unlike those 2 it also doubles as a way to hook 2 items together to cause all kinds of chaos. However this game falls apart in story progression due to needing to cause chaos just like how Saints Row 1 & 2 require you to earn Respect before you can actually play the next mission.

I'm kind of hoping they'll add the first Just Cause to this list of games. Even though JC2 is basically already that. But with better graphics.

Hitman: Blood Money, Just Cause, Hitman: Contracts, & The Last Remnant have now been added to this bundle. This probably should've been named The Humble Eidos Bundle since none of these games make me think Square Enix.

 

*Edit*

Correction The Last Remnant is a JRPG. So it could remind me of Square Enix. But I've never heard of it before.

      Every once in a while I'll come across free games for PC that look really good. Anyone can feel free to update this topic with limited time free game links so we can add them to our ever growing backlog of games. If a game states how long it will be free for, please list that along with the link. Sometimes it won't be stated so if you click a link and its no longer free, then that promo must have expired. I've seen alot of free game listings off slickdeals or other blogs. I'll update this when I see good ones. I would post the free games with Amazon Prime, but I don't currently have amazon prime so if those appeal to anyone, feel free to post them since Amazon Prime generally gives away a couple free games a month.
      To start off with:
      Little Nightmares is currently free with a Steam promotion until 05/30/2021 @ 10:00am (does not say if EDT, PDT, etc. )
      https://store.steampowered.com/app/424840/Little_Nightmares/
      Company of Heroes 2, Company of Heroes 2 Ardennes Assault - Limited Free Promotional Package, free for this weekend or until 05/31/2021? It doesn't say exact day it ends.

      I finished playing Final Fantasy XIII a couple days ago. I put in just under 100 hours on it and honestly had a lot of fun with it. The plot was a bit overly complex and it played out the first part of the story in a series of flashbacks that was very popular 10 years ago like Lost and other shows and movies. It was done ok and the datalog had all the reference material in it to keep the story moving along without getting confusing. The game was very linear until you get to Pulse, but then the game slows to a crawl if you do all the Pulse side missions. Pulse is where the game gets more "open world exploration" and to me open world games are becoming more tedious and time consuming. I want a story not endless exploration that doesn't further a plot. I remember when this game came out alot of people hated it but I didn't know why. Lady played through it twice and loved it. Now 10 years later I finally played through it myself and had a good time. I really liked the characters, except for Hope. That guy annoyed me and once I could customize my own party I never used him again.  
      The character models looked great, everyone was beautiful and I loved having strong female characters. All the scenery looked amazing too. I need to set up a command chord on my xbox controller so I can take screenshots on my PC. I would have loved some screenshots at a couple different locations. It was also nice that once you could customize your party you weren't limited to having a specific team leader on at all times, you could play as any character. The combat is extremely simple at the beginning of the game. You basically "auto command" and the game basically AI controls everything, attacks, spells, etc. This seems extremely boring and simple at first, but as I progressed through the game you get paradigm shifts that change the complexity significantly. The Auto command basically helps you input the commands fast because the ATB moves so quick, especially with haste, you're much better off using the auto command to get attacks off faster and focus entirely on the paradigm shifting to change the combat roles on the fly for all the clutch moments of healing, inflicting and removing status ailments and buffs, defense, offense, etc. After a good 20 hours into the game the real combat is basically shifting paradigms all the time. What I also found interesting was the AI would auto adjust itself to the most effective means of killing an enemy based on the intel gathered from the enemy and what status effects everyone has. Using the Libra technique to get more info on enemies was vital. Overall combat was actually pretty damn fun once it got to this point. Aside from the party leader death issue.. if the party leader dies its an instant loss even if you have another character with the raise ability. I thought that was dumb, but the game does have a "retry" option for every battle that compensates for that.
      There was some aggravating moments though, the mini map and main map not being locked to north was beyond annoying and enemies not dropping gil was the dumbest thing. The only way to make money in the game was to either find it in chests or sell specific premium drops from enemies, but after a while, gil was pointless as I never had to buy a single weapon since they could all be found in chests. Upgrading weapons needed a massive tutorial that was completely absent from the game and I had to find guides online. Upgrading accessories was completely pointless when better quality ones could eventually be found in chests. I really don't understand why they did the money thing in the game at all. Every other FF game lets you kill monsters, get gil... makes no sense. And there were some enemies that I came across that straight up kicked my ass out of no where. I could be owning all kinds of monsters, leveling up stronger and stronger.. hey look at that monster, I'll go kill him. *monster instant wrecks me like I'm a level 1* wtf. Moments like that were extremely aggravating and the game doesn't go out of its way to tell you some of these monsters were meant for later in the game and doubling back to kill when you are stronger. Some other bosses were strong as hell to compared to the monsters leading up to them. And near the end of the game, I pretty much had to grind up to get a bunch of leveling done.. which meant alot of pulse open world missions. Those were fun for a while especially once I got teleportation stones unlocked, that took care of an ass load of back tracking. Thankfully I did a good chunk of all those pulse missions before the last couple chapters of the game.. because once I got to the end of the game the monsters became straight up powerful as hell. I realized if I didn't do those extra 20 hours of missions and leveled up, I'd have probably rage quit at the end because of these monsters. lol. Like every monster fight of regular enemies in the last area of the game was the equivalent of mini bosses.
      The ending could have been a bit better, but overall I highly enjoyed it. I started the sequel yesterday.. and it is already a very very different game. lol.

      The new PlayStation 4 firmware update will include external HHD support for game installation. Finally. I honestly didn't realize the original PS4s even had USB 3. They are also finally adding custom wallpapers via screenshots. About damn time. The wallpapers in the online store are complete garbage. I'd still prefer to use my own .jpg files like on the PS3, but modders used that feature as a way to hack the system which is why we never got the functionality in PS4. Using a screenshot is completely fine with me.

      Nvidia is launching an online game streaming service called GeForce NOW.
      I'm going to quote myself here from another topic:
      With Playstation having it's own streaming service and now Nvidia making it's own service, having to own physical consoles and PCs specifically for gaming might come to an end within our lifetimes.
      The downside to the Nvidia service is the cost. I've been seeing the numbers "$25 per 20 hours of gaming" floating around alot. If so, thats a hell of an expense for now.
