If you fancy Murdered: Soul Suspect, Nu-Thief, or Hitman: Blood Money, the Square Enix Humble Bundle (and Humble Store sale) have you covered.
First off, let’s talk about the Humble Bundle I described as “weirdly priced.” Four more games have been added for those who beat the average, which is currently $8.73: the best Hitman game Hitman: Blood Money, the other Hitman game Hitman: Contracts, the not-as-good-as-its-sequel Just Cause, and the cult JRPG The Last Remnant. Which basically means that paying more than the average gets you the entire Hitman series. Not bad.
In total, if you pay $8.73, you now get: Thief Gold, Daikatana, Mini Ninjas, Anachronox, Hitman: Codename 47, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts, Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Absolution, Just Cause, The Last Remnant, Deus Ex: The Fall, Deus Ex: Invisible War, Battlestations Midway, and a Nosgoth Veteran Pack. Up your payment to $14.99 or more and you also get Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Just Cause 2, and Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days. Alas, no sign of Sleeping Dogs or the excellent Hitman: Sniper Challenge.
But wait! If there are other Square Enix games you want, you can just drift on over to the Humble Store where rather a lot of them are 75% off for the next week. I’m not going to list every game in there because that would take me all bloody day, but a few notables are Murdered: Soul Suspect for £9.99, Nu-Thief for £6.66 (which seems like apt pricing), Thief 2: The Metal Age and Thief: Deadly Shadows for £1.24 and £1.74 respectively, Tomb Raider for £3.74, and equally rather cheap are the Legacy of Kain games, the entire Tomb Raider series, Sleeping Dogs, Final Fantasy 3, 7, and 8, and… okay, so apparently I am going to list almost everything.
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 things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really 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.
