      The second Humble Choice (the new version of Humble Monthly) is now available, with 12 choices for games this month:

      1. Middle-earth: Shadow of War
      2. Graveyard Keeper
      3. Two Point Hospital
      4. Dirt Rally 2.0 (and 3 DLCs: H2 RWD Double Pack, Opel Manta 400, The Porsche 911 RGT)
      5. Street Fighter V
      6. Bad North: Jotunn Edition
      7. TrailMakers
      8. Unrailed!
      9. Whispers of a Machine
      10. Them's Fightin' Herds
      11. Mages of Mystralia
      12. GRIP (and 1 DLC: Artifex Car Pack)

      Having 12 choices this month is fairly significant, since it means that even people on the grandfathered "Classic" plan aren't able to take all the games and have to miss two of them. It seemed to be a pretty common assumption that there would always be 10 choices so Classic members would always still get everything, but that obviously isn't necessarily true.

    4. Epic Games Store - Mega Sale - Up to 75% off and $10 off every game $14.99+

      Making this as a text post because the Epic Store interface isn't very good, and I want to be able to highlight particular sales.

      Here's a better interface for browsing on gg.deals

      First: this is a bizarre sale and clearly another case of Epic effectively subsidizing something that wouldn't be possible normally. As a really blatant example of what's crazy about it, I posted the announcement trailer for John Wick Hex last week. It got announced 8 days ago, there isn't even a vague release date, and they don't even know which consoles it's coming to yet. Even with that, it's on sale here now for $8 instead of $20 - 60% off, a week after announcement!

      So because of that, here's some of the sales that seem most ridiculous due to being unusually large discounts, especially on games that aren't even out yet or just came out. Let me know if you spot more, all prices USD:

      Game Sale Price Normal Price Discount
      John Wick Hex $7.99 $19.99 60%
      Satisfactory $19.95 $29.95 33%
      Shakedown Hawaii $9.99 $19.99 50%
      Slime Rancher $4.99 $19.99 75%
      Subnautica Below Zero $9.99 $19.99 50%
