Oh and one more thing, since the bonus game has been the subject of some (always excessive) discussion in all the usual places where Humble haters congregate to spread their doom and gloom evangelism to anybody who will listen.
My stance on the bonus game is very simple, in case anybody is interested.
Make the decision based on the wares on display - looks good, then buy. Otherwise? Fine, then skip.
(Of course, some of us will also attach some value to subscriber perks like the store discount and access to Humble Trove, so those are definitely things to keep in mind, too).
If the bonus game is good, great! If it’s nothing to write home about, whatever.
So, FOMO, then: while some folks might be tempted to jump onboard, based on considerations like “this is their first reveal since the switch, so it MUST be good”, it makes no sense to spend money on a bundle you otherwise have no use for, if you ask me.
At the end of the day, it’s your money and you’re welcome to do whatever you want with it, however the point of Choice IMO is knowing in advance what you’re getting, rather than keeping your fingers crossed for reveals that might fit your particular bill.
So far, and albeit it’s still early times, Choice is likely going to see me buying more bundles than I ever did, because I can assess the expected value of the bundle with greater accuracy than it was ever possible for Monthly.
That means no longer eating your hat because you skipped that damn Owlboy + Civ VI bundle that turned out to be full of goodies, or whatever your personal equivalent happened to be.
