Pay what you want for:
Darksiders
Metro 2033
Red Faction: Armageddon
Company of Heroes + 2 Expansions

Pay more than average and also receive:
Saints Row The Third


You're given one Steam key for all of the first four games and a separate key for SR3. Wish it was separate keys for all since I own all of those except RFA and SR3.

EDIT: So actually, I won't redeem the bundle key yet...if someone has RFA separately and doesn't own the other games, I'll trade with you.

Not that I need the games, but I got the bundle at $6. I've enjoyed what THQ games I have so I'm glad to support them, even by that little an amount. Plus, I love soundtracks. The Darksiders soundtrack is actually the director's cut, so it includes 13 more pieces than the soundtrack that comes with the game, in case anyone is curious. Plus, who knows what they may add in a week, assuming more content is added like usual.
Another reason I have to support this is that I think it would be awesome if other large publishers tried this. Gives them good PR, more exposure for the games, and more money.

this is the 6th copy of Metro 2033 I own. Well I give it away after the first one. I dont think your extra games will be giftable.

They aren't.

Sadly this doesn't stand for a lot of what I've come to support the HumbleBundles for. I liked the bundles for their charity, DRM free, no strings attached ideals, but this bundle doesn't really follow much of that. I guess with a huge demand for Steam codes, HumbleBundle just figured nobody would mind that it isn't DRM free, can't blame them for what the customers want though.

I got my key for all the games except Saints Row, but I only really wanted the 3 company of heroes games. I can trade my key to someone who has those 3 COHs.

Sadly this doesn't stand for a lot of what I've come to support the HumbleBundles for. I liked the bundles for their charity, DRM free, no strings attached ideals, but this bundle doesn't really follow much of that. I guess with a huge demand for Steam codes, HumbleBundle just figured nobody would mind that it isn't DRM free, can't blame them for what the customers want though.

To be honest though, I suspect this is a move by THQ it get enough money to not go bankrupt. It has been having some very hard times recently and this is a tactic to buy time or salvation. Someone at THQ probably suggested contacting Humble Bundle in a brainstorming session and when they did someone at Humble Bundle figured that such a collection of games would sell very well, bringing in money for them and the charities, and would also spread awareness of Humble Bundle. A win-win for them, except for the apparent compromise of the ideals of the bundles you mention. Honestly though, I'm fine with that because of how much Humble Bundle appears to be expanding of late, and expanding in some directions may require surrendering an ideal or multiple. (I doubt many publishers would be willing to remove the DRM. Also, these games may have multiplayer to them that utilize Steamworks, thereby requiring Steam anyway.) So long as it is just an expansion and not a shift, whereby all bundles lose the DRM free ideals, I see more benefit to this being done than not.

Oh, also:
Humble THQ Bundle FAQ

Q:
Why is this bundle different from all other bundles?
A:
THQ Bundle is not the new direction of the company, it's one more bundle thing we're doing among many other bundles, like Indie Bundles, eBooks, Music, Android, etc. It won't impede our efforts with other established bundle types, this is just a cool experiment that we're excited to be trying out.
