I was considering Humble Choice for Tomb Raider as it was the Definitive Edition, but then I saw:

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will only include the base game. Does not include the Definitive Upgrade or other DLCs.
How is that not false advertising?!

'[Definitive Edition] does not include Definitive Upgrade' huh?

I think I know what they mean but it's still funny to read.

Anyway I managed to open all the 4 tombs in Anthem. I wonder how much I still have to beat the game.

ah I didn't read the email. Yeah that's not a good look.
Don't get me wrong, I can't get mad at Humble, just a real bad start to their new enterprise.

I have found that the actual definitive Definitive edition is £17.99 on Fanatical at the moment, which isn't much more than the sub and it's the only game I'd be interested in from the choice, so...

As far as I know Square Enix never patched the PC Version. Even the edition released later bundling together the game+dlcs isn't better.
You should look for the FAR mod as it fixes most of the issues and adds a bunch of neat stuff.

Pretty happy with the first month of Choice, especially form only $10. Looking forward to trying Blasphemous, and maybe I will finally play Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

So wait, I subscribed yesterday and got Soul Calibur, if I pick my Humble Choice games now, do I have to pay again or is the 27th payment only for January?

I would recommend not putting any stock into such rumors. If it happens it happens but you in no way should get your hopes up that major sony owned IPs will be coming to PC before it actually happens.
Stuff like Death Stranding and Detroit become human were not sony owned IPs. Meanwhile Horizon is.

That being said it wouldn't be a terrible idea from sony to put an older entry like Horizon on PC in order to get more people interested before 2 comes out. But if they do I would expect them to wait at least a year if not 2 before the sequel hits PC as they will want to drive people to get a ps5 to play the sequel.
The only logical reason I could see Horizon going to PC is that they want to begin licensing out the engine and have to have a couple multiplatform products to demonstrate what it can do outside of Sony hardware. But even that seems dubious because simple tech demos would suffice.

that’s lame of square enix to make us rely on mods to fix their problems. sounds intriguing though if it adds new things to the game.

It’s pretty reasonable so far. But I expect a SEE STAFF POST by the afternoon.
Yeah, so far it's alright given the subject matter. I can see it taking a turn eventually though.

My Era QoL became so much nicer when I decided to put every EGS thread on Ignore.

Not even engaging in that nonsense.
I just use the ignore button religiously. That doesn't stop me from reflexively posting terrible takes though :')

It is funny how Valve added more features to the Steam than all other digital stores (including console ones) combined and people still think that Epic made them do all of that in 1 year XD

You expect gaming journalists to actually follow pc gaming? It's a clown show once they leave their comfy console couches.

I read that PC World article, it's awful with a ton of assumptions. I wouldn't give that thread here the time of the day though. It's not worth it by who is actually involved in those threads.

It's a shame about Void Bastards not being in the Humble Choice anymore. I played it when I had a trial of GamePass and it was pretty fun.

You can either pay for the new choice games between now and Dec. 26th.
On Dec. 27th, if you hadn't paid for the new choice games, you will be auto charged.

They’ll probably have a nice sale on Tomb Raiser before long on the DLC but it’s still a farce to see when being labeled as Definitive. Will wait until later, probably when my anniversary bonus kicks in, to early unlock Humble Choice anyway.

So technically December had two sets of games that had to be purchased individually, one for Monthly and one for Choice and then starting January a new set of games will appear, Choice-only. Or are the Tomb Raider Choice games the January selection?

This. In January 3rd, a new set of games will be available and you won't be able to pick between the current selection (Shadow of Tomb Raider, Horizon, etc.)

The problem with Tomb Raider is that the base game is actually named "Definitive Edition" now even tho the actual Definitive Edition content isn't included unless you get the DLC for it...



It's not an issue on Steam since they removed the option to buy the base game, but it means that even tho you don't have the DLC the game logo in your library will state that it is the Definitive Edition.
You can think that's it's greedy not to include the DLC but the wording of it all really is not Humble's fault.

I'll buy the DLC in some Steam sale later since the price for this bundle will probably be really good then.

Square loves doing this for whatever reason. They did same for Just Cause 4, Rise of Tomb Raider too (and probably others).

Just when I'd finally worked out the Humble Monthly cycle in regard to game reveals, availability and charges being applied etc... this transition to Choice has me befuddled - not sure if I'm looking at 'next month's' games, or this month's... it's hard work this bundle stuff!

Don't sleep out on Horizon Chase Turbo, it has 4 player split screen, a free Easy Mode campaign for some relaxing driving as you also get to learn the stages and an outstanding soundtrack.







Did I mention it has beautiful scenery?

The previous bundle was the November one which had Yakuza Kiwami etc.
The new and current bundle is the December one which has Shadow of Tomb Raider.

The next January bundle will be revealed on the first Friday of January.

Hope that clears it up ^^;

Well, they kinda simplified it to be honest. Chose your plan and pick between the currently shown pool of games. No early / late unlocks or anything like that anymore.

I guess so, yep - I think it's the transition that has confused me, with something of an overlap between the last Monthly and Choice kicking off.

Thanks - your reply, and Tizoc's prior to that, have cleared it up, I think!
