February Humble Choice includes Fallout 76, Thronebreaker, Pathfinder

By - | Views: 26,236

Need some more quality games? Humble Choice for February 2023 is up with a fresh set of games and there's some good stuff included like Fallout 76. This is Humble's optional monthly subscription that gives you a fresh set of games to keep every month, plus a discount in their store and more.

As usual, I'll go over what to expect on Linux desktop and Steam Deck for compatibility. Noting if something is Native Linux or ProtonDB ratings (which goes: Platinum - Gold - Silver - Bronze - Broken) to save you some clicking around.

Here's what's in it this time:

Fallout 76 (plus the classic Fallout 1)

  • steam deck verified Deck Playable
  • ProtonDB Gold

I actually have an older Steam Deck video of Fallout 76 here.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous

  • steam deck verified Deck Playable
  • ProtonDB Gold

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales

  • steam deck verified Deck Verified
  • ProtonDB Gold

Othercide

  • steam deck verified Deck Unsupported (but works fine in Proton Experimental)
  • ProtonDB Platinum

Shady Part of Me

  • steam deck verified Deck Verified
  • ProtonDB Platinum

ScourgeBringer

  • steam deck verified Deck Verified
  • Linux Native

Fobia - St. Dinfna Hotel

  • steam deck verified Deck Verified
  • ProtonDB Platinum

Five Dates

  • steam deck verified Deck Verified
  • ProtonDB Platinum

Check it out on Humble Bundle.

Wow, surprised that Thronebreaker is a steam key. Nice, chill game.

I play Othercide just fine on my steam deck, no idea why it's marked as unsupported.

Fallout 76... the game failed so hard that they are now giving it away on Humble Bundle and PS4/5 at the same time.

But it's made of Finest Bethesda Canvas (and mould)!

Not that I'm particularly interested in the game, but it's from 2018. A lot of AAA games were on both Humble and PS+ at much younger age.

It's not the greatest game that ever exited, even for a live service, but, to Fallout 76's credit, it's going a lot stronger than many other such games that both released after and died before it has... like... IDK... Anthem? Fallout 76 was never worth it's original sales price, but, it's often on sale for $10, which, even ignoring all the added FOMO stuff, gives you a decent game to wander around in and shoot stuff... doubly so if you have a friend or two to play with.

Was watching a video about all of the games where the live services were killed off. Makes me think that some of those should basically have some consumer protections in place, like if someone spends X amount of time into it to make it worth the money they spent (including loot box type purchases) that if the company doesn't just go under, but instead cancel a game's support to try to make more money with another one, then they should provide some sort of refund (or bonus stuff for their new game) or something...

Can you imagine if something like World of Warcraft decided to end, and how mad all the people who have dumped their lives into playing it for a long time, and the money people have spent on it? Granted this is one reason of many why I stay away from MMOs.

I feel this very much falls under the category of Consumer Beware. These businesses are under no obligation to make sure your time/money investment is secure or given some form of compensation, and, as much as I hate the capitalist system at times, nor should they. If consumers are not aware that a publisher/developer can yank their online game from them at the slightest whim, then that's on the consumer for being ill informed.

Like I said, as far as Fallout 76 is concerned, I wouldn't spend more than $10-ish on that game alone, but, if you even have a passing enjoyment of the Fallout franchise, then you should easily get at least $1/hr of entertainment or better out of the game without needing to drop more money into it. If you do buy any of the "extra" stuff (for Fallout 76 or any other online service), that's fine, but it's your responsibility to know there is always the probability that as soon as you drop real coin into the game, it will up and poof on you.
