I find it hard to get my head around a single fighting game, but if you’re the type of person that masters brawlers for fun then Humble has a treat for you. The Humble Brawler Bundle crams in a grand total of eight fighting games, which is pretty much a lifetime’s worth for most people.
For the princely sum of $1, you’ll get your mitts on Guilty Gear XX, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend and Skullgirls. I’ve only played the latter one and I very much enjoyed it, but the other two are very nice looking indeed and both carry ‘Very Positive’ reviews on Steam.
Bumping up to the Beat the Average price, you’ll get copies of Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!! And Street Fighter X Tekken. This is probably the weakest tier of the bunch; anime pervs might get a kick out of Arcana Heart 3, while the reaction to Street Fighter X Tekken wasn’t great at all when it launched,
The third and final tier is a bit of a corker though. $9 will get you all of the previous games, plus Arc System’s Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN and Rivals of Aether. Guilty Gear is one of the best-looking 2D fighters of all time, while Rivals of Aether is an indie hit quite clearly inspired by Smash Bros.
All in all, not a bad bundle for fighting game fans, although it’s perhaps all a little one-note for some tastes, myself included.
