If you need another set of games to play this weekend and into next week and probably longer, Humble Bundle put up the IGN Live at Home collection.

Below I will do my usual round-up of what's in the bundle plus the Steam Deck rating, any ProtonDB rating if there is one (or if it has Native Linux support) and each is a Steam link if you need more info first.

Mech5 is a great 4-person co-op game, runs great on my desktop under Proton (it's Unreal Engine), too. Can even mod it just fine, easy peasy, and the mods add a ton to it.

Haven't tried the apparently janky VR mod for it, but I *have* tried my HOTAS (X56) and it seems fine. Throttle control is a little weird with the 50% = stopped, 0% = full reverse thing but I'm sure I could remap that externally if I wanted (and might still have a go at).

The Humble Bundle just isn't as enticing as it used to be. They still claim "pay what you want" but then lock the best games behind the highest price threshold. I miss the days when it was literally "pay what you want".

To be "devil's advocate" for a moment: the PWYW model was only good for players after the initial boom where people were quite generous. Developers and Humble all need to make money from it, so it makes sense to have a minimum that still gives players a better deal than buying individually (and usually by quite a lot too).

The bundles haven't been PWYW for a long time now, can't remember the last time I saw that, multiple years no doubt. It's almost always "Pay at least" now.

This assumes you would buy all the games individually. But if you are only sort of interested in one or two games and the bundle costs €20, then it may make more sense to spend that money on a single game that you really want, one that you actually might have time to play.
