The Humble Bundle store is currently holding a spring sale, which means lots of games at insanely low prices. However just because a game is cheap, doesn’t mean it is worth buying, which why today I am going to recommend some games that are on sale over at Humble Bundle.
Before I begin, I do want to quickly say that all the games I recommend are ones that I own and have played. This means there maybe some great games that I don’t mention, that’s because I haven’t gotten around to playing them yet myself. If you think I’ve missed a great suggestion, let me in the comments! Now, without further ado, my Humble Bundle spring sale recommendations…
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a co-operative multiplayer games that requires great team work and communication. One player will be at the computer, they are the bomb defuser; the rest of the team has the bomb manual with the instructions on how to defuse the bomb, which the defuser cannot see. Only the defuser can see the bomb and interact with it and with a timer counting down, the pressure is on. This is a fantastic party and one that you can get non-gamers to play and have fun with, just be prepared for a lot of shouting.
Next up, we have a slightly old game, with Borderland 2: Game of the Year Edition. This insane shooter cross RPG is bizarre and fun. Plus you have the option of either playing alone or with up to three friends. Despite being an old game, the unusual art style keeps it from feeling dated. The game of the year edition also comes with all of the DLCs as well, allowing you to spend more time on the planet of Pandora, whilst paying a fraction of the price.
Moving on to a game inolving a different type of insanity, we have the difficult turn based strategy game, Darkest Dungeon. In Darkest Dungeon, you lead a party of adventurers in a quest to reclaim your family’s ancestral estate, all the while combating not just enemies but your very mind as well. Darkest Dungeon is a great example of a game that easy to learn but difficult to master but if you love turn based strategy or gothic horror themed games, then I recommend you check this one out.
There are quite a few of the Assassin’s Creed games on sale, so now is a great time to either start playing the games or completing your collection. If you are new to the series, I would personally recommend Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate or Assassin’s Creed: Origins. If you want to indulge in some parkour, assassiny fun, now’s your opportunity.
The third game in the revamped Tomb Raider series is out later this year, so here is an opportunity to catch up on all the tomb raiding shenanigans. I wasn’t a fan of the older Tomb Raider games but the 2013 game won me over as I did my best to help Lara survive the brutal and mysterious island of Yamatai. This version of game comes with all the DLC content, including a bonus tomb to explore.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the disease that ended humanity? If the answer to that bizarre question is yes, then Plague Inc.: Evolved is the game for you! A mix of strategy and simulation, the aim of the game is to destroy humanity by evolving your chosen disease to its absolute deadliest potential. Just be warned: after playing this game you will be terrified when you hear someone sneeze.
This was the first Far Cry game I ever played and it is still my favourite. Far Cry 3 has you stuck on a beautiful island filled with psychopaths, wild animals and drugs. With one of the most entertaining antagonists I have come across in a video game, if you buy Far Cry 3 be prepared for a wild ride.
Moving onto a more serious and darker game now, This War of Mine makes you responsible for the lives of a group of civilians, trapped in a city that has been turned into a war zone. A game that makes you question the choices you make in the name of survival and certainly won’t pull back on the emotional punches.
And to finish this list of recommendations, we have Overcooked! a four player co-operative game in which players must work as a team to serve meals to your customers. This is an absolutely mad game that usually devolves into panic and craziness. This is another game that is great to play with non-gamers and I have yet to find anyone that doesn’t find Overcooked! fun.
And there were a few recommendations for games to buy from the Humble Bundle spring sale. The sale lasts until 10am (Pacific time) on Thursday 24th May, so you don’t have long! As I mentioned before, there are a lot of games on sale and I know I missed a few, so if you have any suggestions, write them in the comments and I’ll talk to you soon!
