At least they are trying to repair their image it seems... On other side, i am curious why are they giving Dead Space 1 & 3, but not 2 .

Picked it up late last night, and most of the games have steam codes as well as origin codes. I added up what the current prices are on steam and origin earlier and it came to 225 give or take a few pennies, so it's a good deal.

I am curious about this too. Sales tactic perhaps?

It's a good bundle, though I'm not mega chuffed to be installing Origin again. Still, Dead Space 3 as a pay-what-you-want is good enough to make me risk it.

Neither am I, but just earlier this week I was thinking about buying BF3, so I'm going for it as soon as I get home

Which of these titles come with Steam codes, and which are Origin only? Apologies if this info is on the Humble Bundle site, but I can't access it via work in order to check

And then they looked at their sales figures and compared them to Steam....

I've gone for this Humble Bundle. Mind you what am I saying? I go for all of them pretty much.

What's odd is that the day before this went live I had started a playthrough of Mirror's Edge (and its DRM and Securom) and wished I had it in Steam lol.

Although most of these are not new they are sterling titles. BOP is another great one

Shame Origin has died on its ass really. I bet it's not used to having more than two people log in at once.

I got this bundle, and got all the codes for Origin.

It did take a few minutes to redeem each code, that I have redeemed though since the servers were busy.

If a game is on Origin and Steam I will buy it on Origin since I really do not like Steam.

I like that when I open Origin it connects to the net, instead of loading with no connection and having to close it and open it again.

Origin also doesn't kick me out of games, when it drops the connection to the servers every couple of minutes like Steam.


The only thing I like about Steam is the Back up & Restore feature.

It's just a shame that Burnout Paradise, undeniably one of the most entertaining "Racing" games ever, had it's MP servers axed recently, so Multiplayer in that carnage is no longer possible. I love how they still sell it, though.

Kind of pathetic how Origen is so unpopular that it can't even handle a humble bundle, especially considering most people will likely choose the Steam option where available.

Either way, I'm not interested in this bundle. I already own Mirror's Edge, I didn't care for Crysis 1 that much (it looked nice but wasn't that fun), Burnout Paradise was just a terrible game overall IMO, and Sims 3 is more of a time waster than something I would go out of my way to play.

Dead space (the first one) is the only game I'm a little interested in, and that's because it's the only game old enough to not be completely corrupt by EA. While I heard BF3 is pretty good, I personally hated the previous ones.

Bit like when the Steam servers fall over when around 18,000 people try to download a DLC for Black Op's 2.

I really don't understand why people hate Origin so much considering it's virtually the same thing as Steam, but in my experience it works better compared to Steam.
