The appearance of Playstation Humble Bundles is a sure sign of “times they are a-changing”. One of the staples of PC gaming for years have been the sales, something that has taken root on consoles much later. Now, there are great bundles for consoles as well!
THQ was a sucessful developer and publisher of games that had some seriously popular titles in its portfolio. The titles included such names as Saints Row, Red Faction, Company of Heroes and Dawn of War. After the company went bankrupt, Nordic Games acquired the trademark in 2014, and it is known as THQ Nordic today.
The bundle offers the usual pay-what-you-want style, starting from $1:
- ArcaniA: A Gothic Tale (PS4)
- Deponia (PS4)
- The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 (PS4)
- Red Faction (PS2 on PS4)
- Super Dungeon Bros. (PS4)
If you beat the average price more games are added:
- Battle Worlds: Kronos (PS4)
- Destroy All Humans! (PS2 on PS4)
- Destroy All Humans! 2 (PS2 on PS4)
- Legend of Kay Anniversary (PS4, PS3)
The most expensive, but definitely bringing the best games is the $15 or more tier:
- Darksiders (PS3)
- Darksiders: Warmastered Edition (PS4)
- Darksiders II (PS3)
- Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition (PS4)
- MX vs. ATV Supercross (PS3)
- MX vs. ATV Supercross Encore (PS4)
The Darksiders are one of THQ’s old titles that definitely deserved more exposure. Luckily the titles were re-released in their remastered editions (with the pun-tastic names Warmastered Edition and Deathinitive Edition). At the time when the remasters were released, THQ Nordic did say that “there will be a large-scale project based on Darksiders”. Many have taken this to mean Darksiders 3, as per game’s lore, two more Horseman were supposed to get their own games, Strife and Fury.
Here’s to hoping that more console game collections get the Humble Bundle treatment in the future.
