Humble Bundle is usually a PC thing. With the exception of a pair of Nintendo bundles and the Capcom PlayStation Humble Bundle, consoles don’t usually get in on the action. The good news is that the Humble THQ Nordic PlayStation Bundle offers a chance for PlayStation 3 and 4 owners to get in on the action.
Before I start listing games, this bundle works slightly differently than other bundles. While you still have three tiers you can get in on, all the games will arrive in one code. Because of this, you’re going to be locked into whatever tier you pay for, so you can’t pay for the first tier now and add money for the other tiers later. This humble bundle is also region locked to North America and South America, so if you’re not in those regions you’re not going to be able to claim this one. With those points in mind, onto the games.
The first tier is set at $1 or more and includes five games, with all five of these games being PlayStation 4 games. The first game is The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, a humorous point and click adventure game that parodies many famous movies, books, and video games in its tale. Next is Red Faction, the classic PlayStation 2 FPS that featured a highly destructible environment for you to exploit. The third game is Super Dungeon Bros, a co-op dungeon brawler with a focus on its heavy metal theme and being fast paced. The fourth game is Deponia, another point and click adventure game that got rather big on PC and has spawned multiple sequels. You can read our review of Deponia here. Finally, you’ll get ArcaniA: The Complete Tale, an action RPG that originally started life as Gothic 4 – ArcaniA but became a standalone title when the IP rights to the Gothic name reverted to Pirannah Bytes (who had nothing to do with the game). As usual for this tier, you’ll also get a 10% coupon for the Humble Monthly Bundle.
The second tier includes four more games if you beat the average, which is currently $11.57 at the time of writing. In this tier, you’ll get both Destroy All Humans! and Destroy All Humans! 2, a pair of open world PlayStation 2 games about an alien that visits Earth too, well… destroy all the humans that were ported to the PlayStation 4. You’ll also get Battle Worlds: Kronos, a turn based strategy game inspired by classics like Battle Isle. You can read our review of it here. The last game you’ll get Legend of Kay Anniversary, a 3D platformer with some martial arts elements mixed in. We have a review of this game as well. While all the game so far have been PlayStation 4 games, with Legend of Kay Anniversary you’ll get both the PlayStation 3 and 4 versions.
The final tier is set to a fixed price of $15 and includes three PlayStation 3 games and their PlayStation 4 remasters. The first game is Ps3 sports racing game MX vs. ATV Supercross and its Ps4 remaster MX vs. ATV Supercross Encore. The other two games included are Ps3 games Darksiders and its sequel Darksiders II, with the Ps4 getting Darksiders Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition (our review). Both games are action RPGs that take after several different series, with the first game even being jokingly dubbed “Zelda Must Cry” for a while.
The Humble THQ Nordic PlayStation Bundle will be available for the next two weeks. If you don’t have a PlayStation or aren’t interested in the games, then you can also still grab last week’s Humble Hooked on Multiplayer Bundle.
