Square Enix Humble Bundle 3 delivers some of the best offers in months. Even though I kicked the habit of Humble Bundles years ago, I’d really consider buying it if the company didn’t feel like region-locking me out of the website.
At the minimum $1 level, you can pick up the first chapter of Life is Strange, one of the year’s surprise hits, along with the first three Tomb Raider games, Murdered: Soul Suspect and The Last Remnant. Okay, so Life is Strange is easily the best deal of the bunch if you want to see what all the hype is for, but The Last Remnant isn’t nearly as horrible as its reputation would have you believe.
Paying the average delivers the most for your money, including Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the best Final Fantasy game in over a decade, Just Cause and Just Cause 2, Front Mission Evolved, and a pair of puzzle games in Gyromancer and Yosumin. To cap it all off, the bundle also offers a 20 percent discount on Just Cause 3, but you won’t be needing that since Just Cause 2 is a much better game, and 33 percent off the Life is Strange Season Pass, just in case you liked the first chapter for $1.
At $8.99, Square Enix will give you Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Tomb Raider Game of the Year Edition and Hitman: Absolution Edition. Not bad, but the average price tier is better.
If neither is up your alley, then the $1 tier is about as solid of a bundle you can get for that price.
