Still looking for a gift to give to that last person on your list? Something they can enjoy for a long time after receiving it? If that person is anything like me, video games would work, and right now you can purchase the 4+2 Humble Bundle: PC and Android 8 pack of games from Humble Bundle.
Humble Bundle is a company that puts together bundles of video games, usually independently developed and DRM-free, and sells them using a pay-what-you-want model with a customizable portion going to charity. The charities this time around are Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. To encourage buyers to spend more than the minimum, some of the content is locked behind the average price others are paying.
In this bundle the four base games that you get at any price are AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome, Gemini Rue, Jack Lumber, and Little Inferno, and the beat-the-average games are Anomaly 2 and Hero Academy (hence the 4+2 description I used earlier). All of these games are available for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs; on Steam; and for Android, so you can enjoy them on almost any device you may have on or near your desk.
Now the question is if any of these games make the bundle worth buying on their own, if only together are they worth your money, or if this is something to miss? To that end, I have played all of the games and written about my experiences. As the bundle is only available for a limited time, I have not played them to completion, but I have played enough that I feel comfortable reviewing them. Also I have played them on my Android smartphone, a Verizon Galaxy Nexus, which you can read a review of at TalkAndroid, a sister site to Overclockers Club: Verizon Galaxy Nexus review – Does it live up to the hype?
About time we got to the games, what do you think?
