The latest Humble Bundle is an EA-specific one, and considering the games on offer, it’s probably one of the best bundles I’ve seen yet.
You know how this works by now: the Origin Humble Bundle, like every other Humble Bundle, is divided into two tiers. Let’s have a look.
The “pay whatever you want as long as it’s more than $1” tier nets you the exquisite Dragon Age: Origins, the approved-by-Tim’s-mum Peggle, the pretty good Dead Space 2, the dated-but-fun Medal of Honor: Allied Assault War Chest, and the everyone-but-me-likes-it Command & Conquer: Generals, plus its Zero Hour expansion if I’m reading this right.
Pay more than the average – which, at the time of writing, is $4.48 – and you can add Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, Dragon Age 2, Bejewelled 3, Mass Effect 2, and at least one more game that has yet to be revealed. Seriously, that’s… that’s a pretty good deal.
While all of the games activate on Origin, a few of them also offer Steam keys (namely, the ones that are actually on Steam). As such, even if you refuse to touch Origin for whatever reason and would just rather let the Origin activation keys rot away, you can still get your hands on Dragon Age: Origins, Dead Space 2, Mass Effect 2, and Bejewelled 3, at a price that’s still ridiculously low for those four games. You appear to be out of luck if you want DRM-free versions, mind.
Still, this is one of the more impressive Humble Bundles I’ve seen in quite some time. Go have a look over here.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
