I thought Shantae was alright, probably best of the bunch (maybe not Darksiders 2), nothing convinced me to go back after my first play session though.

ASA Zero rates highly and I wouldn't mind Shantae meaning I could get away with paying $1 for those two Wii U games that I wouldn't even ask for codes of Jay for that little amount but I want to know what the other games are that will be added if you do over $13 also I could selll my copy of Rhythm Thief then as well.

It's ridiculous that some people are saying things like 'hmm, I might get it': it's £9 that goes to charity for a big load of quality games. It shouldn't even be up for debate. That I think it's a bundle of games that I'd happily have paid £9 for individually makes that mindset even more baffling to me.

That aside, I've bascially downloaded this for Affordable Space Adventures. It'll be good to have a version of Street Fighter on my 3DS home menu too. Citizen's of Earth...I don't know about that. Anybody played it?

I don't think I'd have bought a single game that I don't already own out of that lot. Perhaps Freedom Planet. That sad, the "for charity" angle might be enough to guilt-trip me into it.

I've played Citizens Of Earth on the Wii U. It's somewhat buggy, to be honest, particularly towards the end, but there's a lot of fun to be had (once you get past the slow start and amass enough characters for a decent team). The 3DS version might play better, for all I know.

Also, well, it's a quirky turn-based RPG. I know you haven't always got on with those in the past, Cappa, so I wish you well with this one!

What are hell are you talking about? I bloody love RPGs, I do. The way that they take fifty hours to get started, they're magic.

Wink You could comfortably play through Citizens Of Earth twice in 50 hours. Thumbs Up!

I've gone for the deal and given $13.01 and has I already own it, offered the Freedom Planet code to Balla.

CoE I went for Wii U as if it doesn't run to well on that, surely the less powerful 3DS runs it even worse.

I would consider the Vita version of it unplayable. The load times were so long for small things like going into a house, I had to give up on the game.

The dev team were coding on multiple formats and had no QA team. It's a wonder they got any kind of game out at all! As soon as it's properly patched to run smoothly, CoE will be a great little game.

Was a no brainier for me anyway, only one I've played was Street Fighter and I'll take that again for a few quid. Granted a lot of them will just be added to the backlog and I don't have the space for them all but there's no harm in it. I've no idea where to start though, perhaps Shantae, sounds the easiest one to jump right in to.

You can rattle through Freedom Planet in a few hours. It's an uncomplicated Sonic-alike, and a really good one at that.

It's pretty cool to see Nintendo jumping on board with Humble Bundle. Has it not been exclusively PC before this?

Nintendo did it a while ago for USA, but I think they are the only ones to do it.

I tried messaging Balla about Freedom Planet Wii U code, but no reply. So that's up for grabs, still if anyone want's it?

Swords & Soldiers II, Nano Assault Neo and Runbow have just been added to the BTA teir. Superb!

https://www.humblebundle.com/friends-of-nintendo-3ds-wiiu

I've got none of those, so I'm very happy with that. Thumbs Up!

I will champion Runbow for a long time. Good single player and cracking multiplayer. I've none of the other new games, so it might be time for me to get on the middle tier... if I do, watch out for some codes. Thumbs Up!

It looks like GAME are reducing all of their Wii stuff. Games that were £7.99 last week are down to £4.99, £4.99 down to £2.99, and so on. They're all still in the '3 for 2' offer that they've been running since the beginning of time as well.

Some of the better stuff I saw in my nearest GAME: NPC Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat for £2.99, SSX Blur for 99p, and the two Truama Centre games for 49p each.

Late Humbler (and indeed Bundler). What are the standouts from that lot, gentlymen? Freedom Planet will be the one I go for first, I think.

Interesting to see that Windows users paid much less on average than Linux or Mac users. And by "interesting" I mean "I'm going to use this as incontrovertible proof that Windows users are selfish gets."

Splatoon has been hovering at around the £15 mark all day on Amazon:

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and Lego City Undercover are £14.00 each on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Legend-Zelda-Waker-Select-Nintendo/dp/B01D1CZCM4/ref=lp_1659393031_1_8?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1464620543&sr=1-8

~

I also seen that CEX have lowered the cost of all their Wii stock. In my local shop I spotted some genuinely decent stuff for between fifty pence and a quid, like Ghost Squad, Eledees, Wii Music, Geometry Wars Galaxies and Little King's Story. Let's Tap was 10p!

Got Wind Waker HD for £14 at Tesco the other day so started on that today.

Didn't realise Runbow, Swords and Soldiers and Nano Assault were added to the bundle - makes sense of why I suddenly have them on the Wii U menu! Currently have no access to a telly though so can't play Runbow as it has no off-TV mode.

I swear that Runbow does have an off tv mode, maybe you can't swap to it without seeing the TV maybe?
