The folks over at Humble Bundle have done it again.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the group, the Humble Bundle is a sort of fire sale site that gets deals from game developers that allows them to sell digital copies of their games online. What’s different is that there is no price tag. That’s right, no price tag. You pay as much or as little as you want and you get every game that is currently in the bundle. Afterwards you get to decide how you want to distribute that money between three parties: Humble Bundle, a charity, or the developers using an RGB type bar system.

Although they are famous for getting the word out for indie games (I’m sure you’ve all heard of the Humble Indie Bundle at some point) this time they have gone into business with THQ to present a line up of several AAA games all by THQ… for however much you want to pay them…

It seems crazy, but they did it and we thank them. Here is a list of the games that are graciously being presented by THQ and Humble Bundle on their site for the next 13 days (oh yeah, the catch is that they are not permanently available for purchase. Can’t have everything).

GAME LIST:

Darksiders

Metro 2033

Red Faction: Armageddon

Company of Heroes

Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts

Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor

…and if you pay at least the average amount (which as of this writing is $5.22):

Saints Row: The Third

All of these games can be yours for about six dollars, including soundtracks and steam keys for all of them. Humble Bundle is also notorious for adding games to the list after about a week so I’m betting there will be even more titles up there before the 13 days are up, and if you pay more than the average now (a measly $6) you will receive them once they are added to the bundle. But don’t quote me on this.

Needless to say, the folks over at Humble Bundle are doing God’s work for us gamers so head over to the site if you don’t want to miss out.

    I remember there was a lot of fuss back when EA tried jumping into the humble bundle scene (Notch said they were “methodically destroying gaming”). But personally, I don’t mind big developers jumping in on the bundle model. I think it’s pretty cool. It helps charity, gives older games another shot at getting recognition, and shows that the big developers are lightening up to new ideas.

      Plus it’s a great way to get into a game series that maybe has more current releases. I know I’ll be trying Darksiders out and that might lead to me getting Darksiders 2 as well.

        That’s a good point. I could see myself giving a series a try that I otherwise wouldn’t be interested in.
