    The terms of sales for the Humble Bundle expressly prohibit this.

    That being said, they did track down a bunch of resellers doing exactly this. It was dealt with harshly. It used to be that you got a steam key, that you could type in. Now the game has to be activated by linking to a steam account via the e-mail they send you.

    Yeah, which I dislike immensely, as I sometimes purchased a bundle with the intent to give one or two of the games to my fiancee, and the others for me.

    Agreed. Half of the time I get a bundle with a couple of games that I already have.

    It's too bad, but at the same time it's because of a-holes that we can't have nice things. At least the bundle is still generally cheap enough to get two, and still come in under the price of some of the games currently listed on Steam...

    You can also check the box which says "email me the gift codes" or something like that before selecting the payment method :)

    Been a few weeks, but I thought that only allowed you to get a steam key for all of it.

Combines elements of FPS and RPG games allowing the player to modify themselves with various mechanical augmentations and to perform various side quests in addition to the main story. The director's cut includes the Deus Ex: Missing Link DLC which was originally released after the original game.
    • Just Cause 2 (84% PC, 03/2010): An open world action-adventure game that lets the player complete objectives in various different ways with an array of weapons and vehicles along with the ability to reach great vertical heights using grappling hooks and parachutes.

The player progresses through the game while upgrading their character's nano augmentations and uncovering various conspiracies involving groups like the Illuminati and Majestic 12.
    • Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days (66% PC, 08/2010): A third person shooter game where the player takes control of two criminals trying to keep alive after an arms deal goes wrong.
    Just Cause 2 is a favorite of mine just for the sandbox ability.

    JC2 also has a multiplayer mod though I don't know how many are playing it any more. I was having fun launching boats in to space when it initially released. :laugh:

    I hate that it doesn't include Thief 2. The best of the series.

    Sort of nice to see Deus Ex on the top tier thoguh, the best of that bunch. Anachronox is very interesting.

    There was a fair amount of people on when I first tried it out. It was fun to screw around in and I'm sure would be fun with friends. On my own it got stale fast though.
