A lot of folks these days, myself included, still opt to cling to traditional print media when they can. However, when most novels come in at a painful $16AUD each, my poor student's shelf remains pretty empty. As usual though, Humble Bundle comes to the rescue with not one, not two but three book/comics bundles available at the moment. Bizzare Books "This is...
I’ve spent the majority of my weekend slicing and dicing my way through hordes of Skaven and Northmen. I’ve solo-qued, I’ve played with friends and yes, I’ve played with bots. I’ve unlocked a few classes and tried some more weapon combinations. Ten hours into Vermintide 2 and I find myself asking, what’s the bloody point? But what is it? Before I get into...
Music, gunpowder filling the air, smoke obscuring the enemy, officers barking orders, a musket that takes a realistic (and painfully) long time to reload and plenty of Frenchmen to cut down. What more could anyone want from a Napoleonic Wars title? What is it? Once upon a time, Anvil Game Studios thought to themselves ‘what if we took the Napoleonic Wars DLC...
“Run!” “Come on!” “Just go!” The frantic shouts of my friend over the discord call barely penetrate through the drone of hissing and chattering rats, the visceral crunch and crack as blow after blow lands and foes hit the ground only for more to spring up behind them. Shots ring out as my comrades offer what little support they can from the safety...
Benjamin Franklin once said: ‘in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.’ That’s something I’ve always subscribed to and I’ve never been fond of either of those certainties. Now I think it’s fair to say that, were Mr Franklin alive today, he’d expand that saying by including one more certainty: Humble Monthly, being worth every...
If you're like me you associate Paradox Games with ridiculously priced DLC for Crusader Kings II. That my friends, is where good old Humble Bundle comes in. Right now, until March 12th, there's a massive sale on Paradox Games titles all across the Humble Store. Up to 75% of these titles! Tyranny: a fantastic RPG by Fallout New Vegas developers Obsidian. City Skylines Deluxe...
Hi, I’m Another Cynical Fat Man, you might know me from my work here on the site or you might have enough sense to avoid anything I’ve written, regardless I’m here as the head of Nerds4LifeBlog’s Humble Bundle Partnership. Yes, it is my incredible privilege to announce that we have partnered with Humble Bundle. For those of you who are unaware...
Today, at 12pm AEST, signing sessions went live for those with weekend passes to RTX Sydney 2018. It went about as well as you’d expect. Last year, around this point, the same event occurred with the same issues, Moshtix’s site produced error upon error for many unfortunate fans just trying to get the sessions they wanted. For most, by the time Moshtix...
My first few fights in Divinity Original Sin 2 weren’t exactly nail bitters. I had the key advantage of playing with my best friend and thus already had an extra party member. It was when we begun waltzing around Fort Joy, the setting for the first chapter of the game, like we owned the place that the difference between the...

In a journal post, Head of Marketing Mr Eric Duncan laid out the proposed changes to the system that currently sees subscribing fans receive a box of exclusive merchandise every month. Under the new system, subscribers will receive a “bigger” box once per quarter,...
