If you already own the titles, you don't get gift copies.

$1 gets you:

I've got Cities and I've played a different Sherlock. How are the rest of these? Mostly wondering about Wargame and Game of Thrones.

Thanks for the info on GoT. So is Wargame alone worth the extra money?

I would say yes..This game is basically World in Conflict, but better in almost every aspect..I had my eye on it but it slipped by me somehow and I forgot about it...It has a Metacritic score of 81/100, and a user scored of 8.3/10..I am in for it..

I am probably going to hold onto GoT and Wargame, but will give the other keys away if anyone want's one and is too cheap to pay a friggin dollar:p..

I've said before that Divinity II has some of the best-written quests in any game I've played. Loved it.

WiC is easy-mode compared to WG:EE. The AI is actually better than most human players, and will actively aggro on you outside of scripted 'tripwire' instances if it senses it can win. The computer, like in all tactically-focused war games, will also quite blatantly *cheat* when it comes to their accuracy/damage rolls and yours.

The campaign is a good way to earn stars (which you can now reset to build a multi deck) towards multiplayer - the bad thing is that there you have two things working against you:

1) Dumb random players, and 2) grognards who've min/max'ed every aspect of the game and live to exhibit that knowledge against newbies and #1s. This HB will decidedly increase the number of #1s, so expect a good handful of #2s to take a break from Airland Battle to come back.

Another protip about WG:EE - your stars and campaign progress are stored *locally*, not on Eugen's or Steam's servers. If you uninstall without backing this data up, or expect it to survive on another install, it won't unless you have a backup of your profile from your original install.

You mean; "$6 well spent..."

CitiesXL is a great substitute for Sim City.

This bundle gave me the magic 200 games. 195 of which I will never play, but there's family share, right? :D

Man Family Share is kinda limited. I'm in it and you have to actually go to the person's house to set the thing up. Or give them the password to your Steam account. Some say they use Teamviewer though. For a Steambox or a family member's computer in your home it's perfect though.

At any rate it's not as I thought it would be.

Just looked at review of cities XL. Especially now that it's part of humble bundle? Purchased! Hopefully I'll actually be able to spend time with this game, unlike a lot of the other games that have been purchased, dating back to 2001 :eek:

Yeah, it's not designed to be done on remote machines really. A friend in the beta just logged in on my machine via TeamViewer and it worked fine, though.

It's pretty cool...I can see it being useful for my GF to play some of my games on her machine while I play a non-Steam title or do something else.

Another in for cities XL for a dollar. I usually spend the average or minimum to pick up all the games, but I don't think I will ever play Sherlock Holmes or Wargame.

Been playing Cities XL today, what a great game. Better than SC 3000 and up IMO. It's definitely different but I'm really enjoying it.

Got the bundle for Cities, but ended up installing Divinity 2 as well and so far i'm pleasantly surprised (combat kinda sucks though).
