Humble Weekly Sale offers Serious Sam, Hard Reset, System Shock 2, and more

Just in case you haven’t already spent all of your money on the billion other bundles and sales and new games on offer, rejoice! There’s a new Humble Weekly Sale ready to squeeze the last currency out of your bank balance.

Pay whatever you like (above $1) to get Serious Sam: The First Encounter HD, Serious Sam: The Second Encounter HD, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, and Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition. Pay over $6 and you can add Hard Reset: Extended Edition and the superb System Shock 2 to your pile of new games, along with their soundtracks.

The terrifying RPG/shooter System Shock 2 is the crown jewel of the lot (and if you’re not sure why, you can check out our lengthy interview/discussion with two of the people behind it – Jon Chey and Dorian Hart, now working on Card Hunter – to find out) but the others are pretty good in their own right, too. The Serious Sam games are superb if you fancy a spot of random blasting, Duke Nukem 3D was one of the best shooters of its time, and the original Shadow Warrior… um. Well, it’s an acceptable shooter. Unfortunately, it also has a large dollop of racism and sexism.

You can pick up the bundle over here. All games will only activate on Steam, so if you’re not a fan of that particular service, you may want to skip this bundle.
