Humble Bundle announced today a new subscription service to get games that have never been in their weekly and regular humble bundles. The service costs $12 and the first bundle will be released on November 6th. Each subsequent bundle will be delivered via email to subscribers on the first friday of each month. You are able to sign up now to secure the first bundle. You can cancel at any time or continue your subscription to receive more bundles.
I’m torn on this one. I would love to sign up, but the fact that you can’t see what games you’re getting makes it much more risky than just purchasing their regular bundles. This is also much more costly than the typical bundles which average $2 or $3 dollars.
I don’t see any information about if there’s a “theme” to the bundle, at least that would give us a hint, similar to how nerd block and loot crate both promote their upcoming bundles with a theme such as “villains” or “outer space” etc.
I also don’t see how many games are included in the bundle.
But I have a feeling there will be some really great games, especially in this, their debut monthly bundle, because they will want people to tell their friends how awesome it is and get more sign ups; likewise, if they have a weak launch bundle there would be bad feedback and a lot of people would cancel their current subscriptions.
What to do?! I have until November 6th to make up my mind.
