The Humble Bundle is fantastic value, week in, week out. Every seven days, the nice people at the Humble Store prepare a bundle consisting of blockbuster games, indie darlings, or sleeper hits you might have missed at a pay-what-you-want price. This week they’ve really outdone themselves with the Humble 2K Bundle. First things first: the full $20 dollars, the highest price for the bundle, gets you:
Arguably one of the finest games of the past generation (and yours truly’s personal Game of 2013), BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter unlike any other. A sequel/spinoff to 2007’s BioShock (also included in the bundle), Infinite tackles subjects like power, legacy, and identity through the eyes of reluctant protagonist Booker and his quarry, Elizabeth. Smart, vibrant, and unique, BioShock will challenge your expectations of a video game.
This is it, the strategy game you’ve been waiting for. Winner of a ton of Game of the Year Awards, XCOM is a tactical shooter-slash-strategy game that sees you command a team of 5 soldiers battling an alien menace. Make no mistake-- XCOM is hard as nails, the way the best RTSs should be, but investing in your XCOM skills will bring you hours and hours of gaming joy.
If you’re ok with passing on Infinite and XCOM, paying around $8 will unlock:
The sequel to the original BioShock and the only BioShock game not developed by series creator Irrational Games, BioShock 2 sees players return to the underwater city of Rapture to battle Big Daddies, and this time, Little Sisters too. Curious what those two are? Read on for our blurb on the first BioShock.
2K’s massively popular mobster sim/GTA clone is available for just a few bucks, so don’t miss out. Driving, shooting, looting, and sleeping with the fishes are the name of the game here. Jump in the shoes of Vito Scaletta and climb your way up the Mafia ranks to become capo di tutti capi. Think you got what it takes, wise guy?
2K loves to play around with the standard idea for the military shooter, and The Line is no exception. Although there are plenty of manly military types, tactical desert combat, and all the trappings you expect from a wartime FPS, The Line is unique in that it explores human themes behind the combat-- topics like guilt, remorse, and the pointlessness of war.
On the other hand, if you’re short on dough you can always pay as little as you have and still get these three great games:
Irrational Games’ Randian underwater saga is already in the annals of the video game greats. Set in the submarine city of Rapture, BioShock questions human will, determination, and ambition, as well as the purpose behind our accomplishments. Don’t be deterred: the story does sometimes veer into the philosophical, but just a little bit of effort will go a long way towards enjoying BioShock for the masterpiece that it is.
This isn’t your dad’s Cold War-- The Bureau is a tactical third-person shooter set in 1962, where U.S. secret agents are at war with...alien invaders. Another spinoff, this time of the original Xcom (see above), The Bureau is a stylish and cerebral shake-up of the classic strategy game model.
A sequel to comic book adaptation The Darkness, part II sees protagonist Jackie Destacado team up once more with the mystical power called The Darkness to punish evil-doers. Maybe not the strongest game in 2K’s lineup, but a quality title nonetheless.
