SEGA Humble Bundle has Alpha Protocol, Binary Domain for $6.00

Alpha Protocol’s Michael Thorton, professional charmer.

The Humble Weekly Bundle is a bit of a SEGA love-fest, and by “a bit” I mean “wow, look at all those SEGA PC games.” They include examples of offbeat excellence like Alpha Protocol and Binary Domain, as well as some critically acclaimed stuff like Company of Heroes and Rome: Total War.

This time, any charity proceeds that you opt for will be split between Make-A-Wish, Whale and Dolphin Conservation, Willow Foundation, Special Effect and GamesAid; which means you can quite literally save all of the whales everywhere by playing Binary Domain. Kind of.

Anyway, the “pay what you like, darling” tier has: Alpha Protocol, Company of Heroes, Rome: Total War and Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. To move up a notch you have to pay at least $6.00 USD, but that adds Binary Domain, Typing of the Dead: Overkill, Renegade Ops, Medieval II: Total War and a SEGA Genesis collection (with Altered Beast, Comix Zone, Crack Down, Ecco the Dolphin, Gain Ground, Golden Axe, Golden Axe 2, Golden Axe 3, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master and Vectorman.)

If you go a bit mental or feel especially generous and pay $15.00 USD or more, you get Total War: Shogun II as well.

Here’s the slight down side: each tier is a single Steam key. So it’s just one key to unlock Alpha Protocol and the other four. If you already own some of the games they just won’t be redeemed. That means no way of gifting spare games to other people on Steam. I understand why they might have done that, but it’s still a bit rubbish.

    They’ve been doing the “just one key per tier” thing for awhile, or at least claiming they’ve been doing that. That said: a few bundles have said they’ve done that, and then didn’t QUITE do it. One had two or three games to one key, then two or three to another key, and then one or two games as stand-alone keys. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more than two keys here, but I wouldn’t take my guess as FACT.

    $15 isn’t actually a bad price for all of those plus Shogun 2. You can doubtless find Shogun 2 cheaper elsewhere/on Steam sale, but factoring in the rest it’s a reasonable deal.

    Also, Typing of the Dead: Overkill. Didn’t like it as much as the original Typing of the Dead (for some reason, the overbearing campness of House of the Dead 2 worked better with the ridiculousness of typing zombies to death) but it’s still pretty brill, if maybe a tad repetitive.
