A new mobile-only Humble Bundle is out, with 6 Android games available for a one-off fee. As always, punters can pay what they like for the core bundle of 4 games, which this time includes Plants vs. Zombies, Contre Jour, Anomaly Korea, and Bladeslinger. The Room and Metal Slug 3 are also up for grabs for those who pay more than the average donation (currently $5.56).

Also announced today is a THQ-themed Humble sale for Windows gamers, in which you can pay $1 or more to get two games: Darksiders and Red Faction: Armageddon, or pay more than the average donation (currently $6.79) and get two additional games: Darksiders II and Red Faction: Guerilla.

The THQ sale will last until April 3rd, and the Humble Mobile Bundle will span over two weeks, until April 10th.

The Humble Mobile Bundle makes use of the Humble Bundle app for Android to distribute the games. This is a non-Google Play app that must be downloaded and installed manually. As usual, prospective buyers of both offers can decide where their money goes, with the usual Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play charities appearing alongside the American Red Cross.

In addition to the games, complete game soundtracks in FLAC or MP3 formats are also bundled, as well as the Path to War DLC when purchasing Red Faction: Armageddon. Both offers can be sent as gifts, and can be paid for via PayPal, Amazon Payments, and Google Wallet.


Are you planning on these new bundles? How do they fare compared to previous ones?

    I will not buy this one but the Humble Bundle concept is plain awesome. I bought the ebook pack a while back as well as the previous THQ bundle, but that's it. I'm definitely open to buying more if they come out with content relative to me!

    It's worth a try. And charity with gaming that is a great idea....

    One of the previous bundles already had Darksiders & RF:A. If you have already purchased that bundle and you are paying for Darksiders2 & RF:G give away new codes from Darksiders & RF:A to someone (don't use them on steam since you already have those games already). :)

      That's a great idea, and yeah I remember the Humble THQ Bundle. It came out roughly two weeks before the company declared bankruptcy... there goes any hope of a new Red Faction game :(

    IMO, the Humble Bundles are some of the best I've seen, so I almost always buy them. i would have preferred an Android+Steam set of games than Android-only, but it still looks like a nice collection at a good discount.

    As for the THQ weekly bundle, I already have the first two games from the Humble THQ Bundle a while back. Since I haven't played them yet (not sure my system can even handle them), I don't know if it's worth beating the average price to get the other two games. Granted, it is another good discount, so price alone isn't it. I just don't know if I want to go in for sequels when I haven't played originals, and they're not games that jump out at me as ones I really want to have/play.

      You know what, Red Faction: Guerilla is so much better than Armageddon that it's totally worth it for $7ish on its own, let alone with Darksiders II. I've not played either Darksiders games but I've completed the other two (Xbox 360 versions) and the open-world destruction-based gameplay in Guerilla makes Armageddon look terrible.

      From what I recall, Armageddon was a rush-job to co-incide with some Red Faction TV series/movie deal which took the initial open world concept, crapped all over it with dungeon-esque gameplay and really wasn't that exciting. It's not a bad run and gun game, but it's nothing on the open world awesomeness of the previous title.

      So yeah, Guerilla is an older game (it should run on your system) that will keep you entertained for weeks.

    I love Humble Bundle. The games are usually great choices, and I love being able to decide exactly where my donation goes to.
