You know what’s better than playing games? Many, many other things but I’m contractually obligated not to mention them. Still playing games that you’ve bought with funds that are going straight to charity on the other hand, is an easy feel-good experience! And EA has teamed up with Humble Bundle for a sequel Origin special. Here’s what a whole dollar (or more) will get you.
Pay whatever you want, and you’ll get the following games unlocked:
- Dragon Age Origins
- Dead Space 2
- Medal Of Honour Allied Assault – War Chest
- Command and Conquer Generals + Zero Hour expansion
I’m not a massive Dragon Age fan myself, but Dead Space 2, Medal Of Honour and the infuriatingly addictive Peggle are all good deals to me. I’ve spent far, far too many hours matching orange pegs while that damn unicorn laughed at me. Bastard. Medal Of Honour in its classic World War 2 form may be a bit long in the tooth, but it’s still Medal Of Honour. It’s still a damn fine franchise, before it got turned into a Worf Fighter. Also Dead Space 2: The only game where you can get away with shooting necro-morphed infants. Bunch of screaming buggers.
And Command and Conquer Generals. Not my personal favourite, but it’s still one hell of a strategy game, worth experiencing. Here’s what you’ll get added to all that, if you pay more than the current average of $4.75:
- Dragon Age 2
- Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
- Mass Effect 2
- Bejeweled 3
Not bad! Not bad at all! I still think Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is an absolute gem, that deserves a ton more love. More games will be added to the second tier soon. I’m personally hoping for a Command and Conquer treasure chest, because my disc for Red Alert 2 met an unfortunate end recently. Daddy D needs to go digital, yo.
As usual, all proceeds go to charity.
