Its the penultimate Humble Monthly bundle of the year, let’s see what surprises it has!
1. Resident Evil Revelations.
So, the first game in the bundle missed out on being played on Hallowe’en by two days! Resident Evil Revelations takes place between Resident 4 and 5. It focuses on Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, as they explore an apparently abandoned ship. This week, I’ve been slowly overcome my fear of horror games by playing Call of Cthulhu, so this is actually a good time for Humble Bundle to include a horror game, as there is a chance that I will play it!
Price on Steam: £23.99 (UK)/$29.99 (US).
2. Dead Island: Definitive Edition.
Next up is a game that I own and have (actually) played! Dead Island has an interesting premise, in which you are a tourist trapped on a tropical island in the middle of a zombie outbreak. But I do recall that I experienced a few glitches and issues whilst playing the game originally, however if you wanted something a little different from the zombie genre, then this might be worth a look.
Price on Steam: £11.99 (UK)/$19.99 (US).
3. Sniper Elite.
The next game takes us back to before the millennium. This is the very first Sniper Elite game and it takes place just after World War II and at the start of the Cold War. As an American OSS sniper, you are tasked with preventing Stalin’s forces from learning any German nuclear secrets. I find it interesting that the game isn’t set in an specific conflict but in the time when most military actions were more covert. Sniper Elite isn’t high on my list to play but one I’ll probably give it a go.
Price on Steam: £5.59 (UK)/$7.99 (US).
4. Sniper Elite V2.
Keeping with the Sniper Elite theme, we have the sequel to Sniper Elite, Sniper Elite V2. The game’s premise is very similar to it predecessor, set in the days between World War II and the Cold War, you’re tasked with ending Nazi resistance and preventing the Soviets from gaining any nuclear secrets. Again, I will probably play this some day, but it won’t be soon.
Price on Steam: £14.99 (UK)/$19.99 (US).
5. HITMAN: The Complete First Season.
Moving from a game about a sniper to a game about a hitman, we have HITMAN: The Complete First Season. I actually already own this game, I believe I picked it up in a Square Enix sale, but I haven’t actually gotten around to playing it. In HITMAN, you play as Agent 47, a master assassin, who is tasked with taking out numerous contracts around the world. Now would be a pretty good time to play this, as its follow up is being released soon.
6. Hollow Knight.
Now here’s a game that I’ve had my eye on for some time! Hollow Knight is a side scrolling, action adventure game in which you navigate the dark world of Hallownest. It looks beautiful and challenging, with a lot of content to get through. Definitely a game I’ll be playing soon.
Price on Steam: £10.99 (UK)/$14.99 (US).
7. 7 Days to Die.
On to our second zombie themed game and the one my brother wants to play with me, 7 Days to Die. Its a survival horror game, you which you must survive in a zombie apocalypse. Apparently crafting is vital if you want to survive. I’ll be honest, I’ll probably only be playing this game co-op with my brother, as it doesn’t appeal to me a s a single player experience.
Price on Steam: £18.99 (UK)/$24.99 (US).
9. The Dwarves.
Moving on to a game that is right up my street, we have the tactical RPG, The Dwarves. Based on a series of books of the same name, you have 15 dwarven heroes with whom to face the hordes of orcs, ogres and other fantasy foes. Everything about this game appeals to me, so I’ll be playing this one very soon!
Price on Steam: £34.99 (UK)/$39.99 (US).
10. Hard Reset Redux.
The next game is a single player shooter set in a cyberpunk world, in which mankind is on the brink of extinction. Now, machines have finally breached the walls of the last city of mankind… and its up to you to stop them. This seems to be the sort of game that you play because you want to shoot things, which there is nothing wrong with that, its just I prefer my games to have a little more motivation to them. Still, there is a chance that I would play this in the future.
Price on Steam: £14.99 (UK)/$19.99 (US).
10. Vape Escape.
The final game, as always, is the Humble Original , this month its a game called Vape Escape. It is a point and click adventure in which you play as an ape trying to escape being made into a vape dispenser machine… yes, I honestly have no words for this. I don’t think I’ll be playing this one.
And that was the November bundle! I’ll be honest, this was a bit of a mixed bag, as there were some game like, Dead Island,that I already own; other games that I have little interest in, like Hard Reset Redux and games that I really want to play like Hollow Knight and The Dwarves. What did you think of the bundle?
Next month’s revealed games are Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience and Cities: Skylines, with its After Dark DLC. If you subscribe now over on Humble Bundle, you can play both these games right away. If you don’t want to, no worries, you can always come back here next month, when I’ll reveal what the other games were.
See you then!
