leave a comment »

Fresh on the heels of Humble Bundle’s controversial THQ bundle, they’ve released a new bundle that includes 6 games, and a movie.

The movie, redeemable through Steam, as are all the other games, is Indie Game: The Movie, the award winning documentary which explains the independent game market while profiling some of it’s biggest stars.

All other games are, in true Humble Bundle fashion, available for Mac and Linux as well, with games such as Shank 2 and Legends of Grimrock making their debut on those operating systems.

The bundle will be available to purchase for two weeks, and has, in it’s first day, already raised over half a million dollars. Check it out here.

 

Humble Bundle Announces THQ Bundle

leave a comment »

Humble Bundle today announced it’s newest bundle titled “The Humble THQ Bundle,” which includes the games Saints Row: The Third, Red Faction: Armageddon, Metro 2033, Darksiders, and Company of Heroes, CoH: Tales of Valor, and CoH: Opposing Fronts.

While other Humble Bundles allow you to pay whatever you want in order to get the games, down to one cent, this new bundle requires that you pay at least one dollar. In order to unlock Saints Row, buyers will have to beat the average price consumers have paid, which at time of post is $5.29.

All these games work exclusively on Windows, and separately would cost almost $190.

The bundle so far has raised over $400,000, and with 13 days left that number is sure to grow. Head over to the Humble Bundle website in order to throw your support behind this amazing opportunity.

Activision Revenue soaring

leave a comment »

 

In contrast to the financial woes of companies like THQ and Zynga, Activision Blizzard today reported that in the last three months they have gained $841 million dollars in revenue.

 

The publisher attributes the success to the release of the World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria, as well as the continuing financial success of previous releases such as Diablo 3 and Skylanders.

 

Diablo 3 has sold over 10 million copies, and the same number of people have subscriptions to their MMORPG World of Warcraft. Skylanders sales have continued strong as well, especially with the release of the sequel, Skylanders Giants.

The other games didn’t get a specific time frame for release, and are simply reported as coming out “later than initially planned.”

South Park: The Stick of Truth will come out on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
