There is so much enthusiasm for Shenmue 3 in here! :troll:
Shenmue III (474 reviews)



It's a game I want to play someday but I don't own Shenmue I and II and the rest of the bundle content isn't for me, maybe Popup dungeon could be the exception.

Now, the interesting part of having so few reviews count number is that we might guess how many Humble Choice subscribers are by checking reviews in a few days. Could give a rough estimation

Choice feels like it's curated by suits and AI. It's the one bundle that shouldn't be so weird, but it is.

One of these games published by Humble, most likely Popup Dungeon or Ikenfell:
The good piece of news is that we can expect one of these three in the next Choice bundles: Temtem, Ikenfell (most likely), and Ring of Pain.

I will be glad to get Ring of Pain, which is prudis' favorite game, I guess.

I believe TemTem devs said on Twitter the game wouldnt be part of a bundle while on early access (I might be wrong or even things might have changed since then)

Well i beleive that Humble has really hard time getting games now that MS/Epic are paying devs a lot of more money for their services. And it is better for devs because you lose access to those games after your subscription ends in case of GamePass. Also no option to give games away or sell them.

JCB, who liked Stevey purchase, he hosted a small friendly completion, where we tried to aim for the high score in the latest table that Zaccaria released. Totally six joined the competition, including me. And it was held during the last weekend.
In the end we all got in too 100 global high score and the top scorer got into top 10 global position.

It was fun and I never imagined me getting so high score in a Pinball game

Oh, in case you don't know. JCB is also known as FunktionJCB here on mc
Thats what prompted me to pick them up(y)

Speaking of bundles, Fanatical sent out new keys for Overfall.

Otherwise, not really interesting for me, this months Choice... maybe they should just go back to Humble Monthly, I dont think Choice was such a great idea. Plus, they basically throw all games at you every month anyway.

Bleeeeh. So now the Homeworld IP is part of Koch Media?
I mean, it's no worse than being in the same hands as a usb stick filled with porn because Randy fucking Pitchford owned it prior.
edit: This also means that a team who understand comedy and satire could work on the Duke Nukem IP, and that makes me happy.

Think of it as any non-Blands IP being rescued from Gearbox's ineptitude

I hate being reminded of who Gearbox is helmed by. I hope that clown gets ejected at least but I sure wish Homeworld wasn't in the Koch's hands.

Has anyone actually been banned here? Think our last one was pretty much self-inflicted right?
Yes, we ban people here. You should have received this recipe after you signed up. Did you forget to craft it?



I prefer to report posts instead of warning people, but it seems like I am the only one, so nothing ever happens about posts.

Regarding Embracer embracing Gearbox, my feelings are that Gearbox management really can't get much worse so in this particular case I don't think it's necessarily a terrible development.
What if Randy gets promoted as Embracer CFO?

I already own In Other Waters and kind of interested in Aven Colony, but this Shenmue III is a bundle fodder. I guess they can't strike a deal with SEGA to bring Shenmue I & II as well, which will make this month worth subbing.

Anyway, it'll be a pause month for me. Just got to remind myself to pause closer to the bill date so I can keep my Humble discount in case I want to buy anything if there's a sale.

Yeah to this forum's credit, we just had three pages or something of open talk about pirating games. Other places that's instant ban, even though it's something almost everybody has done for various reasons, and we're supposed to pretend it either doesn't exist. What I like here is that the users of the forum have to do it themselves if they want to ban somebody, not just a moderator who expects to be the bad guy sometimes.

I think I'm actually getting this bundle. I kind of want to try Aven Colony even though it seems to review badly. Other Waters is interesting. Maybe it somehow adds up despite Shenmue. It's weak, but maybe still worth $12.

Also glad to hear that JCB is doing fine.
