Sega Humble Bundle Declares Total War
Sega's Humble Weekly Sale includes Company of Heroes, The Typing of The Dead: Overkill, three Total War games, and ten Sega Genesis classics.
Many gamers still think of Sega in relation to Sonic the Hedgehog, but the publisher has amassed an impressive variety of titles over the years. Outside of its classic Genesis console, Sega has released shooters, strategy titles, RPGs, platformers, and even zombie-themed typing simulators. Now the latest Humble Bundle Weekly Sale is driving this point home with three Total War games, ten Sega Genesis classics, and another six titles that draw from multiple genres.
Total War is definitely the highlight of this bundle, with the Rome, Medieval II, and Shogun 2 versions all being featured. That said, if you'd prefer a little World War II strategy instead, the bundle also has Relic Entertainment's Company of Heroes. Shooter fans can turn to Binary Domain's robot battles, or the top-down vehicular combat of Renegade Ops. RPG fans will get one of gaming's rare forrays into spy territory with Alpha Protocol, while platformer players can try Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. And if you like grindhouse films, zombie-killing, and increasing your typing speed, The Typing of the Dead: Overkill should be up your alley.
If you've lost count, that's nine games to occupy your time, and we haven't even finished yet. Sega is also tossing in another ten Genesis classics to raise its total to nineteen, specifically Altered Beast, Comix Zone, Crack Down, Ecco the Dolphin, Gain Ground, Golden Axe, Golden Axe 2, Golden Axe 3, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master and Vectorman. You've got another six days to decide whether Sega's bundle is worth spending money on, but with this much variety, the odds of finding something to your liking is incredibly high.

Well I wholeheartedly support more people playing Alpha Protocol, so yay for this bundle.
worth it for Company of Heroes alone, everyone should play that RTS masterpiece
If you love a fantastic idea over execution Alpha Protocol is one of the greatest games ever made. You should totally play it.
As a hint, most weapons can be OP but unlocking the pistol's special abilities will almost auto-win boss fights. The combat isn't why you play this game, you play it because it's the most interactive RPG ever made. There are 28 named characters in this game, depending on what you choose to do 25 of them could be alive at the end of the game or 22 of them could be dead.
There aren't good choices or evil choices in this game. There are choices and there are consequences. You can be a dick to a guy so much that his calm measured personality flips out and lures him into a fight to the death early in the game, skipping an end game boss fight. Or you can use your knowledge to butter up his personality, get him to trust you and use that leverage to make him turn on his employer.
They've got a really interesting attitude to dialogue. You're not really choosing who you are like you are in Mass Effect. No you're a freaking spy, you tell people what they need to hear so that you can get what you want to do done.
For some reason, the only thing I see when looking at that humble bundle is "give us $15 for Shogun 2 and we will give you all this other stuff you may or may not already have from other humble bundle sales... or even care about."
warning: if you live in Germany, you don't get "Typing of the Dead: Overkill", you get Sonic: All Stars Racing.
Which is why I didn't buy the bloody thing
"Sorry, The Humble Weekly Sale: SEGA is currently unavailable in your area."
Oh yeah? Well I didn't want any of those old games anyway!
Them grapes, they be sour.
Yes! Another humble Bundle to my pocket! I be needin' a new hard drive, I barely got room to install anything at all.
