New Humble Bundle – By Bohemia Interactive
The Humble bundle has been taken to the headlines recently with it’s most recent sales and now they’re back with a bundle by Bohemia Interactive, the creators of the “Arma” series. There are always to bundles running, one that lasts two weeks, and a weekly one (Bohemia Interactive bundle). With the exception of the Arma series, most of these games are unheard of by PC gamers this day in age. While they’re not old, they’re just not very popular. For $1 you can get the following games that activate on Steam:
The Arma games are what Bohemia Interactive are known for. The biggest game in this bundle is Arma 2 itself, it is an extremely realistic military simulator with everything you’d expect in a military simulator. Planes, cars, helicopters, tanks, explosives, the games got just about everything. There is a campaign as long as some scenarios that you can play through by yourself or with others. Multiplayer is the spotlight of this game though, playing with friends through a co-op campaign is always a blast in Arma!
Take on Helicopters is a lesser known game, but still a great one nevertheless. No, this isn’t Arma, instead this is a helicopter simulator. Be warned, it’s a simulator so don’t expect it to be so easy. It’s basically what you’d expect out of a game where you fly helicopters realistically.
Now I’m not all that familiar with this game, but what I can tell you is that it plays like XCOM. You have a squad and command them, this game goes for sort of a niche appeal, but if you’re into it then why the heck not!
Now don’t be confused. This is Arma 1, gold edition. This comes with all the DLC for the game, and it is pretty similar to Arma 2, except its older. So you can expect somewhat dated graphics and so on. Overall, it’s nice to have this game included.
This game is similar to UFO Afterlight, but with improved graphics. It’s exactly what it looks like, a squad based overheard view game where you takeout enemies. It does have an incredibly low metascore of 37 due to its buggy nature. So beware of that before diving into it.
Alpha Prime is a game that takes place in space. It’s a more retro like shooter and most of today’s games and looks a lot like Halo, even the hud! It’s not very popular mainly because people consider it a “standard shooter” and it’s not well received by critics and players.
Now for $6 minimum you can also get 2 other games that activate on Steam:
Now this is the reason you’ll want to buy the second tier of games. Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead is just an add on for Arma 2, but it does a lot. Such as allowing you to play the popular Wasteland and Dayz mod for the game. Operation Arrowhead also adds a new campaign and more scenarios that can be played, overall if you’re looking for more Arma content, you’ve found it right here.
Carrier command is another game that too, is not very well received. It has very “ok” reviews and really isn’t anything out of the ordinary. It’s mainly just a vehicle shooter type game.
No. You’re not getting the $30 Dayz standalone, don’t be fooled by this one. This mod is free, but you’re only able to use it if you have Operation Arrowhead. So it’s really just there to show off that you can get Dayz if you’d like.
If you’re into military games/shooters this will be an awesome purchase for you. Even the $1 tier is great, go ahead and check it out if you’d like.
