Pay What You Want: The Humble THQ Bundle (PC only)

For the first time ever, The Humble Bundle has teamed up with a major publisher for their “Pay what you want” model in exchange for several quality games. Traditional only indie titles have been featured, but this time around, the games in question are from THQ. Simply pay over the minimum of $1 and receive a steam key (Windows only) for Company of Heroes (and its expansions Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor), DarksidersMetro 2033, and Red Faction: Armageddon. Pay more than the average price and you’ll also snag Saints Row: The Third. And of course, you decide how much of the money goes to Charity, THQ or ‘Humble Tip’. If you ask me, it’s always a win-win when you can donate to a good case AND score some good games in the process. To grab your bundle, head over the the THB headquarters.
