You know the drill: pay a little money, get a lot of games, support charity.
For all the evil they do, EA does seem to try to counterbalance it every now and then with something awesome, and their Humble Origin Bundle is one of those things. The first half is the standard get-a-bunch-of-stuff-for-pocket-change thing. $1 will net you PC copies of:
- Dead Space
- Dead Space 3
- Mirror’s Edge
- Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
- Crysis 2
- Medal of Honor
Paying more than the average will also net you Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 + Starter Pack, and all but Dead Space 3, Battlefield 3, and The Sims 3 are available on Steam in addition to Origin.
The second half of the awesome are the charities that EA has chosen to receive benefits from the bundle as two of them are gay charities, which is why I’m writing an article about a sale in the first place. When you get a bundle, you can spread your donation across:
- The Human Rights Campaign
- The San Francisco AIDS Foundation
- The American Red Cross
- The American Cancer Society
This is a really good deal. Mirror’s Edge and Dead Space alone are worth $5, so getting a bunch more games besides AND donating to the SF AIDS Foundation make this a deal you shouldn’t pass up.
