On the sixth day of Christmas, Humble Bundle gave to me….
Okay, now I’m starting to get a bit disappointed in this bundle.
I’ll begin with the good- Ancient Planet is, once again, a decent and somewhat run-of-mill tower defense game that is serviceable- not the best, but not bad either. I’ll probably play though this.
I have to mention this- it’s on sale now for $1.24, which brings in the question on how I come up with the value of the games. It’s simple, really- the value I put these games in is it’s MSRP on Steam. At the end of this event, I will look up the lowest price each game has gone on sale to see if this really was a good deal or not, along with other data. Eh, you’ll see what I mean.
Then we got more DLC for F2P MMOs, and this is where I am starting to lose faith in this bundle. Is this just leftovers codes from various events? Do these even have any monetary value? I don’t think we’ll ever know.
First off, the Star Trek Online DLC has kinda of a cool backstory- it was actually given out at Star Trek conventions in 2016, meaning the only way to get this (other then this bundle) was to actually go to an actual convention- I actually think thats kind of cool! I have always been more of a TNG fanboy, though, being a 90’s kid in all. I still might check this out.
We also have DLC for an MMO I have never heard of called Gangs of Space. Have no idea if I’ll play it or not.
Finally, we have the cherry on the s@#t sundae, Blockstorm.
At first glance, this looked like a cool experience! You can make your guy look however you want using voxels- there were people in the game who looked like Joseph Jostar from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and Frieza from DBZ for christ’s sake! You can also make your own stages as well. This sounded promising!
Then you actually play the game, and boy, this community f@#king sucks. First off, you have this guy spamming “LOL” everytime he killed someone, but the real insult came at the end of the match, which I lost.
That’s right- Blockstorm has one of those communities- the ones that treat newcomers like s@#t. It has to be one of the most unfriendly games I played in a long time. I’m going to be very hesitant to ever play this game again- sorry, but I don’t like playing games with assholes!
I’m sorry, but I give today’s offering a 2 out of 5. The awful experience I had with Blockstorm just pushed me over the edge. You also have yet more DLC for F2P MMOs that I might or might not play. At least I got a somewhat decent tower defense game.It has to get better- it just has to….
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…
