Still hungry for game discounts after last month's completely insane Steam sale? Well, you're in luck. A new Humble Bundle full of Square Enix classics is now up for grabs.
The pay-what-you-want package includes Thief Gold, Daikatana, Anachronox, and the first two Hitman games. Folks who pay more than the average (just over $6 as I write this) also get Hitman: Absolution, Deus Ex: The Fall, Deus Ex: Invisible War, and a couple of other titles I've never heard of.
If you don't mind coughing up $15, then you'll also receive all of the above plus the original Deus Ex, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Just Cause 2, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
Yeah, not a bad deal for 15 bucks. And as always, the Humble Bundle guys still let you choose how much of your contribution goes to charity.
I could wax poetic about many of the games above, but I have particularly fond memories of Anachronox, a product of the ill-fated Ion Storm Dallas venture. While John Romero was busy destroying his career in another part of the studio, Tom Hall was spearheading this masterpiece of humor-laden sci-fi RPG goodness. I'm still broken up over the fact that Hall never got to tell the end of the story. Still, the game is worth playing for sure.
