@revenant The other day, a friend was looking at a different humble bundle and noticed that they had identified the wrong version of whatever it was they were offering. So people essentially buy it thinking that they were getting Photoshop, but getting Photoshop Elements. It was a different offer than Photoshop, that’s just the one coming to my mind right now as comparison

@revenant i’ve been wondering whether not they were shady for at least a month now, which kinda sucks.I wonder what the backstory is

@byte @revenant perhaps they started to become shady after ign acquired them?

@slipstream @byte kinda my impression too, i had almost forgotten that IGN had bought them out just a few months ago

@revenant @slipstream @byte TBH as a cynical European I'd always been a bit wary of the whole thing, especially seeing software on there that cost a few hundred €/£ not so long ago.

hard to tell if they are being shady or just badly resourced (maybe its yet another thing SV does to get out of paying taxes, so they aren't bothering to audit the charities?)

@revenant but seems to be a proper charity nontheless

@a_breakin_glass Killing Floor 2 alone for under 10€ is a fantastic price. The first game is also excellent

they have some good points at the end regarding HB's choice of charities etc.
