New Humble Weekly Sale Hawks Paradox Interactive Games

August 29, 2013 - Andrew Eisen

Remember when "DRM-free" was a big selling point of Humble Bundle's Humble Bundles?

Yeah.  Good times...

Anyway, Humble Bundle's newest Weekly Bundle has a collection of Paradox Interactive games for you to pay-what-you-want for.  Well, so long as you want to pay at least a dollar because all of these games are Steam-only.

Up for grabs are Europa Universalis III Complete, War of the Roses: Kingmaker, Warlock: Master of the Arcane, Leviathan: Warships, Dungeonland and The Showdown Effect.  Each game comes with its soundtrack which, incidentally, is DRM-free.

Pay more than the average (currently $5.80) and you'll also pick up Crusader Kings II and Magicka and their respective soundtracks.

As mentioned, all eight games are Steam-only.  All are available on Windows, five on Mac and one on Linux.

Say, is that the sound of a crap-ton of money burning a hole through your pocket?  Then perhaps you'd be interested in The Big Kahuna.  Pay $125 and you'll get the eight core bundle and beat-the-average games and soundtracks in addition to a whopping 40 additional games 12 additional soundtracks.

Here's the big list.  I've bolded the core and beat-the-average games.

Remember when GamePolitics actually posted articles about politics involving video games instead of attempting to be just another game journalism site?

Good times.

15 stories on the front page, only three that follow the mission statement.  In the time GP posted the 16 articles you linked, they had a total of 54 articles.

Way to uphold the mission statement, guys.

Re: New Humble Weekly Sale Hawks Paradox Interactive Games

I count 10 stories on the front page that I feel fits the "GP Mission Statement". The other 6 are just plain interesting and not typically the domain of the "mainstream" gaming press.

Re: New Humble Weekly Sale Hawks Paradox Interactive Games

"GamePolitics is designed to stimulate a robust discussion on a variety of topics related to video games, politics and culture."

That's about as close as I can find to an actual GP mission statement and there's certainly nothing saying "we will never post a story about anything that doesn't have something to do with laws and lawsuits and stuff."

Politics is not limited to government and law.

Now, had we spent the week covering Miley Cyrus's performance at the VMAs (unless someone had made a video game about it or something) then yeah, I could see the rational behind an objection in our coverage.

If you don't think the Resident Evil show at Universal belongs on our pages, that's cool.  Don't read it.  But again, it's not like we're ignoring stories like the Smothers shooting (inarguably in our wheelhouse) in order to write about LEGO Minifigures Online.

Re: New Humble Weekly Sale Hawks Paradox Interactive Games

I'd really prefer Humble remain to their roots. But seeing as I already have Steam and I'm a big Paradox Interactive fan I'm probably going to find myself grabbing a bundle for the first time.

At least Paradox isn't EA, and Steam isn't Origin.
