Is three the magic number? The Humble Bandai Namco Bundle 3 is making a good case for it.
If we told you that you could pick up a new(ish) Tekken game for $25, or about £19, that would sound like a good deal. But what if we told you that you could get Tekken 7 and nine other interesting and varied games for that price?
Now you’re interested.
Our picks of the Humble Bandai Namco Bundle 3 are – Tekken 7 aside – are 11-11 Memories Retold, the intriguing collection of wartime vignettes, and the frankly unsettling Little Nightmares, In our review, Josh said:
“The game is awash with visual metaphor from the likes of Upton Sinclair and George Orwell, from the clanking, oily cogs of capitalism and industrialisation, to the exploration of class and consumption, and the atrocities we are capable of committing because of these ideas.”
In games that take interesting risks with their genre but may not be entirely successful throughout, photogrammetry-created horror Get Even, sub-zero survival exploration Impact Winter, and, erm, car game Project Cars also take to the grid in the Humble Bandai Namco Bundle 3.
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Impact Winter, and Pac-Man Championship Edition DX are all available in the $1 tier, or about £0.76 in real money.
In the middle, pay-more-than-the-average tier – currently at $8.84 (around £6.74) – you’ll find 11-11 Memories Retold, Get Even, Little Nightmares, and Project Cars.
At what would normally be the third and top tier in a Humble Bundle, you’ll receive God Eater 2 Rage Burst (including God Eater Resurrection) and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, for the princely sum of $15, or around £11.50 of the Queen’s sterling.
And then, in the final tier, there’s Tekken 7. Yes, it’s $25, or about 19 quid, but that’s a big game for a (relatively) small amount of money, with a bunch of other games included for the price of entry.
Don’t forget that all purchases made from Humble, including the Humble Bandai Namco Bundle 3, raise money for worthwhile charities.
We may receive a small commission for purchases made from online stores.
