The WhatsItTech team was fortunate enough to go to PAX East 2018 this year. During our trip, I was able to lock down a few interviews with some brilliant people. One of them was Darren Korb, composer of the Supergiant Games Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre. Below you will find the written transcription of our interview.

Humble Bundle recently dropped their latest bundle, dubbed “The Humble Bundle Origin Bundle”. They offer AAA games such as Dead Space, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2: Maximum edition, Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space 3, and Medal of Honor. If you choose to pay above average, you will receive Battlefield Bad Company 3 and Sims 3 as well as the start pack for it. At first I thought this was strictly a Origin sale, but then I noticed that certain games had the Steam symbol underneath it. Turns out that Dead Space, Burnout, Crysis 2, Mirror’s Edge, and Medal of Honor all offer Steam keys. For five dollars, this is practically a steal! They’re all fantastic games and I can’t wait to play some of them like Burnout and Mirror’s Edge.
All the money goes to charity and Humble Bundle (since they need money to run their servers). The money doesn’t go to EA, for all of you who hate EA, since EA has stated that they, as well as Origin, are giving their share of the money to charity. Overall, this is a fantastic bundle and I urge anyone and everyone take buy this bundle. It contains great games and it all goes for a great cause!
With the Steam Summer Sale a week behind us, I figured it was about time to let everyone know what I was able to pick up during the sale. Sadly enough, my HP laptop broke the next day (Hard Drive Issues as well as USB, heating, and keyboard issues) so once I get it back, I’ll be sure to do reviews of the games I picked up. For now though, a list will have to do
- Ys I and II Chronicles
- Ys The Oath in Felghana
- Ys Origin
- Universe Sandbox
- Just Cause 2
- Portal + Portal 2
- Fallout 3
- Deus Ex Human Revolution
- Deus Ex Human Revolution: The Missing Link
- The Last Remnant
- Cthulhu Saves the World & Breath of Death VII Double Pack
- Super Meat Boy
- The Binding of Issac
- Saints Row: The Third – Season Pass DLC
- Borderlands 2
- Borderlands 2 Season Pass
- Recettear: An Item Shops’s Tale
- Time Gentlemen, Please!
- Half-Life Complete
- Bioshock 1 + 2
Although it was my first Summer Sale for Steam, I have played the mainstream games like Portal and Deus Ex before. I’m really into JRPG games so I tried to pick up as many of those as I could when they were on sale. I’ll be sure to keep you all posted when I get my laptop back.
