I paid a buck, got all the games but bastion, and then get an e-mail telling me "Hey, we got three more games for you to take, enjoy!" best dollar to charity I have ever spent.

You do know that your dollar didn't go to anyone right? Humble Bundle have to pay a transaction fee on every purchase so they basically have to spend what you gave meaning none of it goes to charity.. Yes you paid more than the dicks that give nothing so Humble Bundle actually lose money but don't think that makes you any better..

Ok yeah, sorry I have to support a family of five a damn near minimum wage job even though I went to School for four years after graduation, my bad that I only had a buck to spare at the moment whocares and as for blacklabel makes me any better? Really, Do you think that just because I only paid a dollar that makes people who paid more into it better than me? Someone needs to re-evaluate their judge of character. Technically it was 2 dollars, the transaction fee and the dollar donation were both taken from my bank account.

I'm sorry I don't have 60 bucks to just toss away like some of the little shits that get on this site(that was targeted at whocares not you blacklabel) but times are tough, and if spending a dollar to get a good chunk of gaming in makes me a bad person then *bleep* it, call me Adolf. Anyone who gets that Big head over paying more than someone else for a bundle obviously has some sort of complex they are trying to resolve as is. Fact is they give you the option of paying what you want, and it gets abused a lot worse than simple a dollar, but in the end it really does end up getting balanced out by the overly generous donations like 10 grand from Notch. Sorry, I live in the real world and can't afford to shell out an extra 10 bucks at the moment, but that won't stop me from going back and changing my donation later if I like the games now will it? So before you get on your high horse and start calling me scum, use your brain junior, not everyone has their parents spoon feeding them, or a massive bank account just sitting there waiting to be used.

Jesus christ, I make a comment about how I spent a dollar, and was excited to see I was getting even more bang for my buck and how that makes the bundle even better and it turns into a personal attack on my character and a drawn out rant. At least blacklabel isn't just some non member troll, and logged in to voice his opinion.

oni_hero, I apologise.. It was wrong of me to jump to conclusions without weighing up all the possibilities. Now you have explained your reason which you should never have had to do I accept why you paid so little. I am very sorry.

Already had SMB from an earlier bundle but it's fantastic to have the other two added to my games library. Glad I put money into this bundle. Those still on the fence and deciding whether to pay the average shouldn't dawdle though as that average has been rising since this started.

Isn't the transaction fee something like 30 cents plus a percentage? As long as payment isn't really stupidly low like 10 cents then some of it should still be making it through and not actually costing them more than they make from the sale.

Besides that, I think the majority of donations for the bundle also pale in comparison compared to those top contributors and are likely far off the actual retail value of the games. All things considered, I'm not going to berate someone for paying a dollar during a promotion that lets you set the price yourself, especially when they could have paid absolutely nothing and just pirated the whole lot (or, as mentioned, paid so little as to cost them money). Charity shouldn't be about guilt-tripping.

Insanity Prevails, I agree it shouldn't be about guilt tripping which is why just before you commented I apologised to oni_hero as he didn't deserve that. I should have weighed up all options before commenting..

blacklabel yeah sorry for going off the handle, I woke up on my day off, made the comment, and mostly was just pissed from the guest there, you didn't offend me or really belittle me at all, so no big deal there, just thought I would shed some light on it.

insanity prevails Your right though, the average is going higher and higher and higher, when I bought it the average was I think 4 bucks, but when I checked back to download the new games it was up to around 8 bucks.

Just booted up super meat boy, and I am now already frustrated lol.

You don't need to apologise really. It's cool. Without me or that other guy saying what we did you wouldn't have been pissed off in the first place to make the comment so you really aren't in the wrong. Anyone would have reacted the same.

Haha, love that game it's a rather sadistic love though as it does punish you in every single level.

Love it that they gave the extra games to the people who gave more than the average before the new games were added.

They gave them to those who paid below too. From now on though, you have to pay above the average.
