Humble Bundle Hosts THQ in Gaming Deal of the Year

Though the Humble Bundle is known for packaging together great indie games to sell, it's doing something a little bit different this time. This time, Humble Bundle collaborated with struggling publisher THQ to put together a bundle of THQ's best-known intellectual properties.

The THQ bundle is packed with goodies, including 4A Games's hopelessly bleak Metro: 2033 and the post-apocalyptic, hack 'n slash Darksiders. Red Faction: Armageddon and the Company of Heroes lineup are included as well.

Saint's Row 3, THQ's satirical, Grand Theft Auto-esque sandbox game is the main draw to the package and is added as a bonus to buyers who decide to pay above the average. (At the time of this writing, the minimum sits just below the $6 threshold.)

The game soundtracks for all of these titles are also available for download after purchase.

Considering that the $6 minimum is well worth even just one of these titles, this bundle is a good deal. Besides, THQ's been going through some hard times, so throwing in a couple bucks just to help the publisher may be a good move. Hopefully, by hosting a Humble Bundle, THQ will have enough capital to see themselves through into 2013.

    theres really no excuse to not have metro 2033 and darksiders after this. saints row 3 is supposed to be good so Ill give it a try, and company of heroes and red faction armagedon is good as well.

    darksiders in particular is one of the best franchises started this gen. their blatant console ports, but it doesnt make them any less enjoyable if you have a controller.

    I have half the games in this bundle, but I got it anyway because I would be really sad to see THQ go under. They are one of the few AAA publishers that I have any respect for anymore.

    Wow, that's actually a good deal for all those games! Too bad I have almost half of those, might just buy the bundle anyway :3

    I played through Red Faction Armageddon a few months ago, funnest game I've played in a long time!

    This is a sweet deal.

  • If people really cared for THQ you should be buying darksiders 2 at retail price, as to they only made 1.5 million, and needed to make over 2 million to break even.

    I didn't care for the mma / wrestling titles on console. I don't see anything wrong with this collection, and did enjoy the first Saint's Row briefly on the 360.

    I posted the last without refreshing the browser, and everything is a tad low since I'm downloading all this stuff, so I hadn't seen your comment, hasten.

    hasten, I agree. I am very very lonely and I definitely do suck. I am curious about what aspect of my profile pic clued you in. I am flattered that you mentioned me and looked at my profile pic. Thanks for that, at least. :)

    Not cross-platform. A few work on Wine but I'd rather wait.
