Pay what you want and help charity. That’s the name of the game for the latest Humble Bundle that just released. What’s new this time is that instead of only PC/Mac/Linux related games, this time it is for the Android and PC/Mac/Linux. You choose how much you want to pay and how much you want to allocate between developer, charity and the organizers. If you beat the average, you also receive a bonus game (or more) all DRM free. As a note, previous Humble Bundles in the past have added bonus games after the fact, and for those who previously beat the average will also receive the bonus games retroactively.
The following games are being offered right now: Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Osmos, and EDGE. If you pay more than the average price, you also get the indie classic World of Goo!
This is for a limited amount of time and once again this all goes to a good cause!
Get your free Portal from Steam, from now until September 20th! This has been brought to us all thanks to education! Yeah, that felt weird to say, but Valve has teamed up with educators, to help find ways to incorporate Portal and Portal 2 into their classrooms. One of the biggest challenges in teaching science, technology, engineering, and math is capturing the students’ imaginations long enough for them to see all of the possibilities that lie ahead. Using interactive tools like the Portal series to draw them in makes physics, math, logic, spatial reasoning, probability, and problem-solving interesting, cool, and fun which gets us one step closer to our goal—engaged, thoughtful kids.
This is a first person perspective game so for those who get a little nauseous (like me), be warned! If you can get past it and haven’t played this, here’s your chance!
Portal is a single player game from Valve. Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories, Portal has been called one of the most innovative new games on the horizon and will offer gamers hours of unique gameplay. The game is designed to change the way players approach, manipulate, and surmise the possibilities in a given environment; similar to how Half-Life® 2′s Gravity Gun innovated new ways to leverage an object in any given situation. Players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals to maneuvering objects, and themselves, through space.
Aww man.. Steam weekend sales.. they usually hurt my wallet, now they can hurt yours too! Normally $19.99, you can now get Borderlands for $4.99 or you can buy a 4 pack for you and your friends at the cost of $14.99 (its like buying 3 games and getting the 4th for free!). Likewise the Game of the Year edition is also $7.99 (originally $29.99) and that too has the 4 pack option at the cost of $22.49.
What’s the difference between the two you may ask? the Game of the Year edition comes with the following DLC:
Zombie Island of Dr. Ned
Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot
The Secret Armory of General Knoxx
Borderlands is a First person shooter with an RPG element that takes place in a futuristic western situation where you can be one of 4 mercenaries (with co-op no less). I myself haven’t gotten very far, due to time schedules with my fellow players, but from what we did play it seemed like a lot of fun! But don’t take my word on it, take a look at Metacritic site for more reviews from multiple publishers and players (81/100 for those wondering).
