Strider, Bionic Commando: Rearmed star in Humble Capcom Bundle

Publisher Capcom headlines Humble Bundle’s latest pay-what-you-want compilation of PC games, offering up titles like Bionic Commando: Rearmed and 2014’s Strider for as little as $1.

Buyers who beat the bundle’s average purchase price can also unlock a pair of entries in the Resident Evil series, along with other bonuses to be announced at a later date.

Purchases of $1 or more will receive Steam-redeemable codes for the PC versions of Strider, Bionic Commando: Rearmed, Lost Planet 3, and the first episode of Resident Evil Revelations 2.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed, originally released in 2008, is an expanded take on Capcom’s 1988 platformer Bionic Commando. Rearmed puts players in control of a heavily armed soldier who can traverse dangerous territory by grappling across walls and ceilings using his extendable bionic arm, leading to creative platforming challenges.

Strider, released for consoles and PCs last year, updates Capcom’s 1988 arcade hack-and-slash action game with a non-linear structure, upgradable equipment, and a storyline that fleshes out once-vague narrative elements.

Lost Planet 3 is the final entry in Capcom’s third-person shooter series, and Resident Evil Revelations 2 is an episodic survival horror adventure that launched earlier this year.

Players wanting to catch up on Resident Evil series lore before diving into Revelations 2 can pick up the original Revelations by surpassing the current Humble Bundle’s average purchase price. Other beat-the-average bonuses include the Devil May Cry series reboot DMC and 2009’s co-op survival horror title Resident Evil 5.

The current Humble Bundle’s final reward tier, unlocked for buyers who pitch in $15 or more, adds Steam copies of Ultra Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5‘s “Untold Stories” DLC pack.

All Humble Bundle purchases give buyers the option of donating a portion of proceeds to charity, with this week’s bundle benefiting Direct Relief and GamesAid. The Humble Capcom Bundle will be up for grabs through October 27th.

The Humble Freedom Bundle is a great deal for an even greater cause
DT's Favorite Games of 2016

Since 2010, Humble Bundle has partnered with developers to sell user-friendly bundles of critically acclaimed games. The distribution platform extends beyond the games sphere, though, as each bundle can be bought to benefit charitable foundations. Normally, the minimum bundle price is just a dollar, but the system is pay-as-you-please. Users are encouraged to set a fair price, and then choose how to allocate the cost between the developers, charity, and Humble Bundle. The latest bundle, the Humble Freedom Bundle, is one of the best offerings yet and works a bit differently.

The Humble Freedom Bundle includes 39 games, from indie darlings to promising early access titles. Every game in the bundle can be unlocked on Steam, and some of the titles are digital rights management-free. Here is the full list:
