It’s another month of Humble Choice and this one’s pretty great. As someone pointed out, it’s not a “choice” really but I beg to differ given that you still have the option of getting the games, even taking not all if you want to, all the while you also have the option of pausing for a month. Yes, it’s not what it initially was but it still is quite the improvement to Humble Monthly in some regards. Anyhow, this month is packed with lots and lots of cool games – and this time around, I only own one of them already which isn’t a big deal because DRG is a game primarily played in multiplayer, so having an extra copy is amazing!

So, right from the get-go: I have no clue what people do when you rank games on the same rank. Do you skip a rank or do you continue as per usual? Personally, this solution here bothers me but it bothers me less than the other option. I also am not sure if I should place Banners of Ruin above or below Legend of Keepers, so I went with my gut feeling telling me that both are on the same level. The same goes for ATOM RPG and Legion TD 2. I’m not a huge fan of TD games or CRPG. I’ve been playing a lot of TD games in the past and even now and then am playing a bit of Bloons, ironically, with a friend together. Hence, in theory, Legion TD 2 should be up my alley as it’s a Multiplayer-Tower-Defense game but it really doesn’t look like I’m interested in it.
That put aside, Deep Rock Galactic is amazing. You’re basically dwarves (one of four classes) and you dig holes. Yes, Diggy Diggy Hole! Anyhow, you search for important minerals, buried eggs and fossils, defeat enemies, or fulfil other objectives. The goal is to go in, dig deep, and get out – and it’s incredibly fun! It’s kind of like a Heist with more shooting, drinking and digging… It’s filled with cosmetics to work towards like a custom pickaxe or beards and outfits – but not as in micro-transactions but rather in the form of progression that you work towards as you play the game. And well, there are also “perks” that you can create unique builds with for each run. It’s a great game.
The next three games have been on my wishlist for ages. Legend of Keeper is like a dungeon crawler but you’re the person that leads the dungeon and who has to fend off those pesky adventurers. So, it’s kinda like Dungeon Keeper but it’s a turn-based game and not a Strategy Game… On top of that, I love everything “rogue”-ish. (get it? Because… people will get upset if I call something “like” or “lite” and I can just use “ish” to make everyone equally upset!) Anyhow, Banners of Ruin looked incredibly interesting when I saw Fahloin play it. It’s essentially a Roguelike-Card-Battler with Animals, Positions, and Party-based combat. It’s super interesting and I like the aesthetic a lot. Yes, Your Grace is a kingdom management RPG… and I don’t know too much else about this, to be fair, given that it’s been a solid year and a half since I first added it to my wishlist. It looked cool and I’m looking forward to playing it without spoiling myself beforehand.
Necromunda looks fun. I believe it’s a Warhammer 40k game as well but another First-Person Shooter and it looked kinda fun because it didn’t seem like the most complex thing in the world. I’ll have to play it before I write more about it because I don’t wanna get high or low expectations when I go into it. Uh, new philosophy, I guess? Anyhow, Lawn Mowing Sim is basically just what the name suggests. It’s cool that it’s there but I wouldn’t have missed it if it wasn’t there. I like games like it but I’m not sure if it scratches the same creative itch that House Flipper did… We’ll have to see!
Are you picking up this month’s Choice? Let me know! What do you own already? Are you looking forward to one specific game in particular?

In a bizarre turn of events, I owned *zero* games from this month. I have no interest in Necromunda: Hired Gun, but I have no doubt one of my friends will lovingly take that one off my hands. On the other hand, nothing in this bundle got me super-excited – it was mostly stuff I was vaguely interested in, but that I was in no rush to purchase. I usually get adequate value out of all the bundles, and can’t remember the last time I paused, but not owning half was a nice change.

Yeah, certainly great to not practically own half, haha.
