My personal take
As is the case for the first Friday of the month, we are graced with a new Choice; it’s an excellent selection, IMO, but one that will inevitably generate some discussion.
The two headliners, this month, are Supraland, a highly rated but previously cheap “mix between Portal, Zelda and Metroid” and GRID Ultimate Edition. So Fanatical was actually able to steal some of Humble’s thunder, after all, seeing how they had the vanilla version of GRID in their bundle already. The June Choice, however, contains the richer Ultimate Edition, which includes the Season Pass - likely going to cause some pangs of regret for anybody who already took advantage of Fanatical’s deal.
Third pillar is Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, which already headlined a Monthly in July 2019 - for sure, this will be cause for some cheese-with-your-whine moments, but I, for one, welcome this change, as it’s simply one of the choices and it’s nice to see a chance to pick up stuff from previous Monthlies; surely not everybody will agree, but that’s life.
Another source for chagrin, for some, will be The Messenger: this pixelated Metroidvania had an excellent reception, but was a freebie for Epic’s “we have more money than Scrooge McDuck- who cares if we steal data” Game Store. Seriously, though, the game is excellent and now you can play it without worrying what Epic is doing behind your back, so rejoice (or skip.)
Bolstering the list of new-to-bundle games are 2D Co-op Submarine Sim Barotrauma (Early Access), precision platformer Remnants of Naezith, and HPL-inspired RPG Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones. 6-degree-of-freedom shooter Overload, by the makers of Descent, would also make that list, although it was a Twitch freebie in 2018, as well as a LootPlay headliner (a US-only deal, it must be noted, and more expensive than the usual bundles).
Somewhat regrettably, it follows that a few other choices have been bundled: Felix the Reaper (Fanatical Platinum BYOB), The Stillness of the Wind (Humble Australia Bushfire Rlief), and The King’s Bird (Fanatical Staff Picks BYOB - Jan '20).
So it’s a great bundle, but likely NOT a no-brainer for bundle fiends. It’s more one that’ll have you look at your library, your friends list and then decide whether the price tag makes sense to you personally.
In the land of Fanatical, Reaper 3 is also a decent bundle which, as usual, falls short of its homicidal aims, featuring some nice games like Styx: Master of Darkness (which I love, but Shards of Darkness would perhaps have been a better choice?) and STASIS.
There’s also a revised Radical Bundle with an extra third tier, which I’m not sure is doing itself any favor, especially with a price tag of almost 10 Euros.
Finally, I would point out IndieGala’s latest Shrooms and Booms comes with Out There Omega Edition. Not a bad way to spend 3 bucks, but not much else appeals.
