My personal take
What if moving Choice to Tuesday was all about freeing up the chance to launch regular Humbles whenever?
Whatever the case, this latest DeckBuild & Battle is a treat for fans of the genre; sure, buck tier is lightweight, and BTA is expensive enough as to make not too much sense, turning this chance into an all or nothing proposition, for the most part.
Humble may love this, but it does contribute to a feeling of having less and less choice (no pun intended, for real), what with sliders being gone and the redesign on the horizon, and of course Premium and Classic plans no longer having any build-a-bundle element.
In Fanatical’s camp, a new Staff Picks is out with pretty accessible pricing and a roster that feels less …cramped to me, and nevertheless, like usual, is ridden with high-count repeats making even getting to 5 unowned-as-of-yet games, a less than straightforward task.
To say the truth, I’m less bothered by these cheap BYOBs, since they generally have better games than the more expensive, but slightly less tired, Platinum Collection.
There is a previously unbundled game, first person puzzle/adventure Seven Doors, and a handful of others that only make their second or third appearances in Bundleland, such as Lorelai, OPUS: Rocket of Whispers, Lorelai, Gloom, Conglomerate 451, and Strikey Sisters.
The high-count repeats are not bad, and at 60 cents per key (5 picks required), this is a decent, if unexciting chance for completists and new players alike.
