Default Humble Bundle (Sims 3, MOH, Dead Space 3 + more)

A new HumbleBundle today, and after 12 hours it's already sold $2.8million meaning this is gonna be the biggest seller ever! First posted by paradroid in the previous HB thread, so if you're in the mood to doll out rep, send it his way!

Pay what you want for:
Dead Space (Steam + Origin)
Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box (Steam + Origin)
Crysis 2: Maximum Edition (Steam + Origin)
Mirror's Edge (Steam + Origin)
Medal of Honor (Steam + Origin)
Dead Space 3 (Origin only)

Beat the average (currently $4.73) to also grab:
Sims 3 + Starter Pack (Origin only)
Battlefield 3 (Origin only)

EA's donating all their proceeds to charity, so this time there's only sliders for the charities, and HumbleBundle tip. Really, an outstanding bundle, although unfortunately nothing DRM-free this time.

Note: There are currently some technical issues with providing keys for "Date Night Sims 3 DLC". There's a note on the redemption page saying "The Sims 3 Date Night DLC will appear here, after some technical difficulties are sorted out!" I'll remove this message once I notice it's fixed.

Update: It appears the Date Night DLC has been removed from the pack now. To be fair, the front page only advertises the Starter Pack, so whatever technical issues they were having, EA clearly decided it was too hard and have pulled Date Night.

DLC included with Sims 3:
  • Late Night Expansion Pack (items, etc, expansion)
  • High End Loft Stuff (items, etc, expansion)
  • Date Night (DLC addon pack)
Installation instructions for Date Night here!

Good bundle, and the fact that EA aren't taking anything is interesting. I assume what they are hoping to get out of this is a collection of new Origin signups and maybe an actual purchase or two. Not a bad strategy.

I'd rather play most of these games on a console than the PC, and indeed I already have a few of them on consoles so I'll give it a miss, though I was tempted.

Yeah, I presume that's their logic. And it'll work too, as more than one game I've bought on Origin was simply because I had an account and noticed some special I couldn't pass up (Command & Conquer: The Ultimate Edition.. YESSS.. this despite already owning "C&C: The Last Decade".. think there' was only like 2 games difference between the two packs ).

Likewise, already own a bunch of these games - but figured since there's more than one game I'd already happily pay $5 for in the list, I might as well throw some cash at it and get them all.

And this way I have backups on another service incase something happens to Valve!

I threw them $5, mainly because I wanted Dead Space and DS3 for that price. I don't have any of the games on the list, so it is a steal for me.

I did just copy this from the other Humble thread, because it's Saturday. Ain't got time fo' dat.

I don't suppose you can "swap" bundles?

Due to at first forgetting password for my normal email account, I thought I would never remember and started using my alternative email.

I tried to contact Humble in regards to it, but I don't expect an answer.

So I have 2 of the latest bundle, if anyone wants it.
