After October 2020’s offerings — which included Tropico 6, Fae Tactics, Sunless Sea, Sunless Skies, and others — Humble Bundle has another strong lineup in store. The Humble Choice for November 2020 has 12 games for its subscribers. Included are titles like Darksiders III, Imperator: Rome, and Yakuza Kiwami 2. Plus, it looks like Premium and Classic subscribers are able to grab all of them, too.
Review Editor Andrew Farrell reviewed Darksiders III back in 2018. He considered it a 3D, Souls-like Metroidvania. While he did praise the world and level designs, as well as the exploration aspect, he found that the game needed quite a bit of polish. There were issues with the camera, combat mechanics, difficulty, and a few other notable bugs. Still, it seems Darksiders III was quite memorable since he considered it one of his favorite games that released in 2018.
As for Yakuza Kiwami 2, Editor-in-Chief Cameron Woolsey gave that a go back in 2019. The game itself is a remake of 2006’s Yakuza 2. It still follows the exploits of Kazuma Kiryu as he explores the seedy underbelly of the city. There’s a bit of hilarity and wackiness thrown in for good measure, of course. The biggest addition here is “The Majima Saga.” This scenario lets you check out the story of Goro Majima, a character who’s had that “sometimes-friend, sometimes-rival” relationship with Kazuma Kiryu.
Another big part of the November 2020 Humble Choice is Imperator: Rome. This grand strategy title from Paradox takes place during the Classical Era. It’s a setting where Alexander the Great’s empire had been passed to his squabbling Diadochi, and Rome was poised to take on the world (if it can get past the Gauls and Carthage). When it released back in 2019, it suffered from a litany of issues. There were problems with game mechanics as well as performance. Fortunately, things got better over time.
