Event: Yogscast Jingle Jam 2017 Day 1

Event: Yogscast Jingle Jam 2017 Day 1

Today, Humble Bundle has put out their annual Yogscast Jingle Jam bundle. Even though last year’s bundle wasn’t that good (or so I’ve heard- I saw some pretty good games in it) I went ahead and bought myself one anyway.

“What is this Jingle Jam Whats-it?” You may ask yourself. Well, it’s simple- Every year, Yogscast puts on a huge stream for charity called Jingle Jam. For the last few years, they have been working with Humble Bundle to create a special bundle that runs December 1st to Christmas Day, with each new day being a new game! The best part- all proceeds from both the stream and the Humble Bundle go straight to charity!

This year’s bundle claims to have over $847 worth of content for a mere $35! Get your soon though, as apparently, quantities are limited- you could miss out on some premium games! And yes, you get all 25+ games- but only if you act now!

I am not associated with Humble Bundle or Yogscast, by the way. It’s just something “fun” I wanted to do while putting my money to a good cause. Who knows- I could of wasted 35$ on charity! Oh no! What a waste of money! Those starving African kids are so privileged- they don’t deserve any of MY hard-earned cash, that I totally didn’t embezzle! (That was sarcasm by the way!)

“So what does this have to do with this blog?” you may ask yourself again (Don’t worry- it’s said that geniuses like us talk to ourselves on a daily basis!) The answer to that is simple- I will take a look at each day’s offering, from today till Christmas Day, and let you know if that $35 is well spent, or if they could have done better. Doesn’t matter really- it’s all for charity. It’s kind of petty to say “That’s it?” in response to whatever the bundle may offer, especially when your helping out some good causes.

You can buy the Yogscast Jingle Jam 2017 Humble Bundle here! (I swear, I don’t work for Humble Bundle! Please don’t sue me!)

You can also check out the Yogscast stream here, if you wish.

Anyway, on with the Countdown (Ah hem)

Games beginning with OWNED are games I already have. No, you can’t have them- this isn’t for charity! Oh, wait…..



On the first day of Christmas, Humble Bundle gave to me:

Total Value: $52

Today with have Rust, Dungeon of the Endless, Qube, and Garry’s Mod. A strong start- If you don’t already have these in your library, that is! This bundle is going to be a crap shoot- but one that goes to a good cause, so like I said in the introduction- it would be petty of me to say otherwise.

OWNED:Garry’s Mod is the one I have the most experience with, and one that I think every one who has a steam account should have- it almost goes without saying.

I haven’t played Dungeon of the Endless, but it looks like a fun rouge-like (lite?) that I’ll defiantly play!

Haven’t played Q.U.B.E. either, but it looks like a pretty trippy “portal” clone. I’ll play this one too!

Of course, the creme de la creme of the bundle so far is Rust, which, sadly, does not run at a decent framerate on my toaster. Maybe one day I’ll upgrade to a toaster oven. One day…. Defiantly want to play it though.

So far, this bundle has had a strong opening, and is actually worth it now- but will it maintain it’s steam?

Oh god, I’m so sorry for that terrible pun- I didn’t even mean to say it! I guess I should just turn off the comedy Valve!


On a 1 to 5 scale, I would give today’s offering a 4!

*Crickets Continue*

What do you think? Is this Humble Bundle a good deal so far, or is it another disappointment? Sound off in the comments below! Or don’t. I’m fine either way…
