Everybody loves a bargain especially when it concerns their personal enjoyment and pleasure. One company that believes in this concept is Bundlestar.com a part of Focus Multimedia which features regularly with titles in my game reviews. The Bundlestar.com mantra is to bring customers incredible PC bundle deals at bargain basement prices.
According to the Bundlestar website there are six bundles on offer. These are available at prices ranging from £1.82 up to £2.98 which definitely puts them in the impulse buy or pocket money category. Priced at £1.82, the Blaze of Glory bundle consists of six titles. These are Commander: Conquest of the American Gold; WWIII Black Gold; KnightShift; East Indian Company Gold; WWII Panzeer Claws I & II; and Pirates of Black Cove Gold. I make that at around 30p a game.
If you are more into blood and gore then the Bloodbath bundle might appeal. This bundle of six titles is priced at £1.86. For your money you get Clutch; NecroVision; NecroVision Lost Company; The Void; 99 levels of Hell; and Zombie Bowl-o-Rama. This collection sounds like it could keep you awake at nights but it should not drain your bank balance.
Next in line, pricewise, is the FPS Warriors bundle for those who enjoy the action of a personal shooter. This bundle will cost you plenty in ammunition and a £2.25 hit on your personal budget. You can load up your personal weapon as you tackle The Ship; Legendary; Shattered Horizon; Section 8; Dino D-Day; and Super Ghost Warrior as you get your fill of face-to-face action and wipe the opposition at under 40p a go.
The Ultimate Sci-Fi bundle bears a £2.60 price ticket. This offering consists of nine titles set in the vast realms of space and alien environments. The bundle consists of Sword of the Stars Enhanced Edition; Project Freedom; Weird Worlds; Spacechem; Spacechem 63 cervi DLC; Really Bigsky; Planets under Attack; Fast Forward; and Ion Assault. At under 30 a title you might find it hard to resist.
Costing £2.97, the Majestic Indie Bundle is also made up of nine titles. For your money you get Mount & Blade; Majesty 2 Collection; Hoard Complete Pack; Forge Starter Pack; Crusader Kings Complete; Shelter; Enclave; Rune Classic; and Knights and Merchants. Single games I review on a regular basic cost more than this bundle
Completing the various bundles is the Outer Limits. This will cost you £2.98 and brings you ten titles. You can try your skills at UFO Extraterrestrials Gold before moving on to Blades of Time; Insane; Hydrophobia; Race Injection; Warfare; Puzzle Kingdoms; Gumboy Tournaments; Supreme Ruler 2020; and Razor 2 Hidden Skies. Again this is under 30p a game.
At this point I should point out that I have not played any of these games myself nor have I availed myself of the Bundlestar service. According to the website, once you have paid the appropriate fee you will be allocated with serial keys to download and activate the games. These serial keys are personalised to yourself and can be used once only so make sure you save the download. Depending upon the actual games, the serial keys can be used with Steam, Desura or Gamesgate.
At the prices being asked for these bundles, it could well be worth while giving it a try even if only some of the titles appeal. You could then report back as to your experience with the Bundlestar service and the quality of the various games for the benefit of other Gadgetspeak members. I look forward to hearing about what I am missing with the Bundlestar experience due to the pressure of writing my various reviews.
