By - | Views: 10,083

Ready for a another set of games to get you through the week? The Humble Be the Bad Guy Bundle is out now with some goodies to get into if you like to be on the other side. As usual it's a varied mix so we'll point out what will work on Linux.

Not a big bundle this time with only 6 titles in total.

Spread across a few tiers there is:

  • Dungeons 3 - native Linux build available
  • Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Master
  • Postal Redux - native Linux build available
  • Postal 2 - native Linux build available
  • Mafia II: Definitive Edition - might work with Steam Play Proton but low performance
  • Mafia III: Definitive Edition - should with with Steam Play Proton but you likely need Proton GE

If those interest you check out the Humble Be the Bad Guy Bundle.

Currently humble also has these bundles going:

Team 17 Greatest Hits

Humble Humongous Back to School Bundle

Humble Telltale Games Bundle

I have no interest in being the bad guy. I never really understood the appeal.

Because it is fun, to be able to play the "other side".
Besides, games where you don't kill/smash anything are rare, beside maybe sport and pure "puzzles".

Out of curiosity, which games do you play ?

I'd consider it if it had the Definitive Edition of the 1st Mafia.

Well it's even smaller for users living in Germany. Postal 1, 2 are banned here.

The whole point is not being who you are.

Tho the bundle does feel a bit off, there could be a few more titles in to work out the classic low-cost part rather than having an empty section.

Mafia 1 comes to mind, but Dungeon Keeper (1 or 2, don't need a steam key), maybe the other Dungeons title, for sure something like Brigador has a place there, but nope.

I just think the bundle is pretty underwhelming, the games themselves aren't necessary bad (tho the Dungeons didn't let me a great memory), I've never truly got the point of the other Mafia games. The Postal games (at least the second one) are a weird fit (since basically everyone and everything is crazy and fucked up in this game), and I own them anyway...

Like Legend of Keepers is the sole title I think is interesting, but I may as well wait another discount (which defeat the point of humble bundle's timed offers)

I understand the point, just not the appeal.

I also can understand games (or other media) that gives you a different perspective about scenarios that are really highly dependent on your point of view. A lot of conflicts are carried out entirely by people who think of themselves as the good guys. I just don't see the appeal of playing as someone who is obviously a bad guy. For example, the whole GTA series is completely lost on me. Never played them; never wanted to.

I play a lot of different games, not all of them free of violence.

I guess you are suggesting that a protagonist in the GTA series is "obviously a bad guy." That seems to be "highly dependent on your point of view" as well. Certainly, they do bad things, but so do a lot of "heroes." A lot of games have protagonists who run around killing people but aren't coded as "criminals."

Nonsense. The people who do things like those portrayed in GTA don't think they are the good guys. They just don't care about being the good guys. They might sometimes rationalize it that they have excuses, but that's not the same thing as thinking they are doing good.

That's not what I said, but let me put it to you this way. I have worked in the criminal justice system for the last 12 years. I've encountered many people who take responsibility for criminal acts, and many who recognize that they did a bad thing. I have never met a person who considers himself a "bad guy" because of his criminal record. Further, I have rarely met a person I didn't think had the capacity for good, even if they had an extensive history of doing bad things.
