Take 20 Canadian dollars out of your wallet right this minute because this Humble THQ Nordic Playstation Bundle deserves it. This is one of the best sales I’ve ever seen on the Playstation store and proceeds go to the charity organization Hand in Hand International. The charity helps nurture grassroots entrepreneurship to fight poverty in 14 countries (and counting). Neat right?
This is only the second time that games on PSN have been available at Humble Bundle. PC players have got some amazing Humble Bundles in the past and it’s nice to see them working their way over to consoles. They are a great way to experience games you might never have played.
The bundle will feature over $334 (US) worth of games from THQ Nordic. Some are for PS3 and some are for PS4 (SIEA PSN regions only). Like all Humble Bundles, it’s only available for a limited time from 11:00am PT on April 4, 2017 until 11:00am PT on April 18, 2017.
Humble Bundle works simply enough, you choose how much you want to pay, with higher tiers unlocking more games. No matter how much you decide to pay, you can allow the default split of your payment, or you can choose where the money goes – between the developer, Humble Bundle, the featured charity, or even a charity of your choice from their database of over 30,000 options.
I suggest the top tier bundle because Darksiders Warmastered is not to be missed.
Here’s what’s included in each bundle:
For $1 or more, you get:
- The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 (PS4) – Every world needs its heroes, however unlikely they may seem. Join Wilbur, Ivo, Nate, and Critter in another classic point-and-click adventure in the wicked world of Aventásia.

Featuring 5 controllable vehicles, 15 weapons of mass destruction, unparalleled multiplayer action, and a setting on Mars in the midst of a deadly plague and rebellion, Red Faction sets the gold standard in gaming!
- Super Dungeon Bros. (PS4) – Super Dungeon Bros. is a rock-themed dungeon brawler where a band of mighty rock bros must navigate the fantasy realm of Rökheim and its hellish dungeons to seek out epic loot, fight hordes of evil undead and uncover the legends of long lost fabled Rock Stars!
- Deponia (PS4) – Daedalic Entertainment invites the players into a fantastic comedy adventure that revolves around a crazy love story of Rufus and Goal. Features a unique comic style with hand-drawn HD resolution 2D graphics, challenging puzzles, and hours of dialogue.
- ArcaniA: The Complete Tale (PS4) – The empire of Mirjana is in turmoil. The power-hungry king has set out to conquer the southern islands – no matter what the cost. In the add-on “Fall of Setarrif,” Aragon’s fate, once more, teeters on the edge of your sword. Face your destiny and make a path to Stearic blocked by monsters, churning streams of lava, deadly dungeons and a frantic population in desperate need of help!
If you “beat the average” price for the bundle, you’ll get all the above plus:
- Legend of Kay Anniversary (select either PS3 or PS4) – 10 years after its initial release, Legend of Kay – Anniversary is a thoroughly remastered version of the original game. Full of fond allusions to old martial arts films and pop culture quotes, Legend of Kay – Anniversary is both an incredibly funny game and a challenging action-adventure for young and old alike.
- Battle Worlds Kronos (PS4) – Battle Worlds: Kronos is a classic turn-based strategy game in the tradition of Battle Isle, Advance Wars and Panzer General. Features Live Multiplayer – battle your friends live on the internet (cross-platform) or via hot-seat – and Asynchronous Multiplayer.
- Destroy All Humans! (PS4) – Take on the role of alien Cryptosporidium 137 and terrorize the people of Earth to harvest their DNA in the most brazen action-adventure you’ve ever played. Take over all of humanity using a variety of alien weaponry on land or in the air.
- Destroy All Humans! 2 (PS4) – Assume the role of the human-hating alien Crypto once again, in the sci-fi action adventure spoof. Take revenge on humanity for destroying your mothership. “Make War, not Love” and take on new enemies such as secret agents, giant creatures, Soviet Forces and even ninja warriors in an expanded open-world.
Pay $15 or more to get everything above plus:
- MX vs. ATV Supercross (PS3) – Rip, jump and scrub your way around 17 tracks and try to cross the finishing line first against more than 40 official riders and harvest all that motocross glory. Choose between bikes or ATVs, multiple game modes including Career, Single races and various local and online multiplayer events.
- Darksiders (PS3) – Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War the first Horseman of the Apocalypse must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.

There are so any good games to choose from. Fifteen in total! Destroy All Humans 1 + 2 were a ton of fun as a kid, and I’m interested to see how they have aged. I love the Darksiders series and hold a special place in my heart for the ATV series. I’m actually most excited to try out Deponia for the first time. The art style looks magical.
