If anyone's been waiting for a good sale to get caught up on Civilization or XCOM, there's a Firaxis bundle!

https://www.humblebundle.com/

Pay what you want and get:
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Sid Meier's Pirates
Ace Patrol Bundle
Civilization III Complete

Pay more than average (Currently $8.43):

Civilization IV Complete
Civilization V
Sid Meier's Starships
XCOM Enemy Unknown - Slingshot Pack and Elite Soldier Pack.

Pay $15 or more and get:

Civilization: Beyond Earth
Civ:BE Exoplanets Map Pack
33% off Rising Tide.

I'm trying to resist buying this bundle but resistance may be futile. If I do buy it all the Xcom keys may end up on this thread.

Also, you can get 42 old EA games on GOG.com right now for less than a dollar per game (85% off), but you have to buy them all to get that.  Individual games are 60% off.  They also exclude games you already own on GOG from the bundle, so you can still get the 85% discount and not have to pay for duplicate games.

Great weekly Humble Bundle with Frozen Synapse (possibly my favorite tactical game), Frozen Cortex (fun mashup of Frozen Synapse and American Football), Lux Delux (basically a customizable version of Risk), and Shattered Planet (a rougelike I haven't played very much yet) in the lowest tier, and Big Pharma and some other stuff I'm not familiar with in the higher tiers:

Also, Steam just launched a Lunar New Year sale with what looks like pretty much the same discounts as the Winter sale:

March Humble Monthly Bundle

ARK: Survival Evolved
Wasteland 2 Director's Cut Classic Edition
GRAV
Shantae and the Pirate's Curse
I Am Bread
Sentinels of the Multiverse
Switchcars

Pretty excited about Wasteland 2.  I've never played an old school CRPG like that, and it seems way too complicated for my puny brain, but I want to try it out.

If you order the April bundle now, you get South Park The Stick of Truth and This War of Mine upfront.

I have to say I'm a little disappointed in this one. Wasteland 2 is great but I've had it for a while on GOG (my dumb ass still activated it on Steam on accident). The other games are early access survival type games, and bad controls meme simulators. I'm looking forward to playing Switchcars though, that looks rad. 

The value proposition is still great and maybe I'll end up loving Ark, Grav or I am Bread. Three games I otherwise would have never even considered. I'm super happy with last month's line up, and it's all for a good cause so I'm a sucker for it.

I'll speak highly of Sentinels of the Multiverse in that line up. It's the video game version of a popular card game, whose main issue was the high amounts of record keeping involved. And the computer takes care of that in this version. The Basic set is a bit limited, but there's still around 9000 different combos of heroes, villains and environments in it.

The Kickstarter for the final physical expansion for the game is currently at 1.2 million with a few days left to go, so it's got a pretty healthy following.

I'd ask for the Tie Fighter one, but I'm going to buy the whole thing myself when I get home today.
