So this 'monthly' malarky is just another subscription scheme to flog you crap games is it? They suck you in with Civ 6 then next month you get No Mans Sky

Seems that way, doesn't it.

Got Quantum Break, The Long Dark, Dawn of War III, Sleeping Dog and Tomb Raider in December. Lots of junk... for 12 bucks per month

Subscribe for 1 year and it'll cost only $10

On a serious note: you can always sell or give the games you don't need to your friends or people who will admire them, personally gave away almost 4x more games on SteamGifts than I won and honestly don't see the problem.

Speaking of DRM, HBM allows you to access Humble Trowe, library of DRM free games. Some of HBM games come in DRM free mode.

So, take your DRM free game, and gift so hated steam items.

Every problem has a solution...

I picked up Quantum Break on Steam when it was on sale.

But of course that means it has the Steam DRM

Haha, yes, this.
Enjoy clicking download, running the installer, installing, and finally running each game one by one manually!

New HBM - Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly

This game is just crazy good - I played it on XBox One. If you already have it, great, if not - get it now as part of monthly bundle.

And remember, when you play it - make sure you have sound set very high (or use headphones) - this game gives new light on what goes in traumatized head...

BTW, on steam watch trailer with comments from users that Ninja Team received upon releasing the game. (3rd video on game page)

Just to add that this game is really great. It is nice turn based tactics with lots of little things that add gameplay, from cheers of characters to nicely scripted campaign. They added 2 DLCs to bundle (Flashpoint and Shadow Hawk Pack), making this game alone worth much more than 12 bucks - price of HBM.

[ Show youtube player ]

Sonic Mania is also early release.

There will be 4 more games added to bundle in less than 10 days and current MSRP is over 60 bucks.

Battletech looks interesting (for a modern game).

Added to GOG wishlist.

EDIT: Oh it's not a FPS. I'm out lol

Holly $hit, MSRP for intro games for HBM close to 140 bucks!

Call of Duty®: WWII (with Endowment Bravery Pack and Endowment Fear Not Pack)

Crash Bandicoot™ N. Sane Trilogy

Spyro™ Reignited Trilogy

This is by far the best monthly bundle so far - all of this for 12 bucks?!

Humble Bundle Monthly

EDIT #1: lol, looking at download - 90GB for CoD, 30 for Crash Bandicoot and 40 for Spyro. Can I get this on floppies, please?

EDIT #2: Rest of games for October HBM:
* The Spiral Scouts
* Planet Alpha
* Override: Mech City Brawl
* Puss! (Looks like Shooney's kind of game )
* Avernum 3: Ruined World
Seems like all of them have Very Positive or at least Mostly Positive reviews. 3 of the games come as DRM free as well (The Spiral Scouts, Avernum 3 and Roman Sands)

Same here, got Crash on PS4 when it came out, but never got around to get Spyro, since PS4 is used only to play BRs, rarely for gaming. This makes it much easier.

Downloading Spyro atm.

With 94 DRM free games in Trove and good selection in Monthly bundle, plus 20% off for store items... well spent 12 bucks per month.

Was thinking just for you to add:
