It’s 317 days until Episode VII and that means the sweet, sweet, Star Wars hype train is starting. I’m fully booked with first class seats and can’t wait to be bombarded with things to go on my wishlist. Movies, games, merch, swag...it's all coming my loves. The things you loved from the past are going to live again, and they're going to be all around.
One of these offers is the Star Wars Humble Bumble for Steam. Basically, this is a Charity Sale for a bunch of really cool Star Wars games on Steam. The profits get split between the developers and UNICEF (which is actually a pretty good charity that ranks in the top 10% of transparency and proceeds actually going to children’s needs). There are a few suggested donation amounts ranging from Under $10 to -$12. Any donation receives Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and Star Wars: Dark Forces. Pay more than $10.95 and they tack on Star Wars Republic Commando, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, and Star Wars Battlefront II. Are you a Baller? Perhaps a Shot Caller? Then the $12 Tier 1 pack might be for you. This includes Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, and Star Wars Empire at War: Gold Pack.
The games are valued at over $100 so it’s actually a really great deal and goes towards kids which is awesome. But, the premise is pay what you want, and it is for charity. So, pay what you can give. At least I know where part of my SWTOR sub money will be going to this month. I’ll be getting the top rank bundle because I’ve been CRAVING some Force Unleashed lately. I’ve been thinking about what cosplays I want to do for Star Wars Celebration, and a gender swap Starkiller is one I’m pretty sure on. And, I need to impress Charles Boyd.
I’m sure everyone has at least one of the games on that list they've been wanting to play. There also seems to be new games being added, and if you don't see anything you NEED make sure to check back. So, give a little. This way, you give some, you get some. It's only around for 18 more days though, so make sure you don't forget.
