Mirror’s Edge’s Faith Connors Battles a Totalitarian Regime,
I Wonder What the Origin of it Was
Nothing beats playing some good games, except maybe playing those games cheaply. The latest Humble Bundle is a collection of six PC games from the much-malignedElectronics Arts (EA.) Some are older titles that can be found fairly cheap or you probably would have played by now if you had any interest, such as Mirror’s Edge and the first Dead Space. Still, there are newer releases included such as one of the more recent Medal of Honorgames and Dead Space 3. You can have all this gaming goodness for as little as one measly little penny, but if you want to be a big spender and beat the average (currently hovering around $4.75, for you big spenders) you get last year’s awesome multiplayer FPS-fest, Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 along with some DLCfor it!
However, all this gaming goodness comes at a price (beyond what you pay for it); you’ll need to install EA’s DRM-laden Origin software to get and play some of these titles on your computer (mainly the newer releases require it, older ones can be redeemed through Steam.) Is it worth it to you to do that? EA is already not getting any of your money because 100% of the proceeds go to a charity of your choose from among the American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, and Human Rights Campaign among others. So for all that, you can’t find it in your heart to let EA have a little room on your computer?
Make up your mind fastl; the deal expires on August 27th!
