Humble eBook Bundle Added more Books

The Humble Bundle site has added five more books to their current eBook bundle.

The five books are XKCD volume 0, Save Yourself, Mammal!, The Most Dangerous Game, Attack of the Bacon Robots, and finally Epic Legends of the Magic Sword Kings. The average contribution has gone up to $13.11 and there is only about 7 days left

XKCD Volume 0 is a collection of popular webcomics, that are little comedic strips about everything. Save Yourself, Mammal! is another hysterical  collection of webcomics based off the Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (SMBC) site that has been going for ten years. The Most Dangerous Game is also from the SMBC site, but only focuses on the 2011 year. The fourth webcomic book Attack of the Bacon Robots is based off the Penny Arcade site that writes comics related to video games. Epic Legends of the Magic Sword Kings continues to the story by being volume 2 of the Penny Arcade series.

Plus you will get the original eight eBooks that were being offered. One can never have too many books to read.

Humble Bundle is known for their game bundles where you pay as much as you want for the collection. The amount contributes to the site itself, the developers, and to charity.

Will you be adding these books and webcomic inspired books to your collection? What are you reading right now?

Humble Bundle Reader

This is the first time I have seen Humble Bundle offer eBooks. Always seen bundles of games plus the soundtracks for said games. I like this direction.

One of the things I love to do is read a good book. I just purchased American Gods by Neil Gaiman, so I'll be reading that first then moving on to these eight books.

Neil Gaiman has a book in the bundle, so I had to make the purchase. There's so many other great authors in the deal Cory Doctorow, John Scalzi, Paolo Bacigalupi, and many more. The eBooks all seem to revolve around the science fiction fantasy genre.

Hoping that Humble Bundle will continue to do this for future bundles. The books would usually cost around a total $52, but right now the average is around $12.04. There is only 13 days to take advantage of this deal and help out charity.

Do you believe that Humble Bundle should do more of these? How often do you read?  Will you be purchasing the eBooks? Do you prefer audio books, eBooks, or physical books you can hold?

Did you purchase NBA 2K13?

NBA 2K13 is the latest game in the NBA 2K series released on October 2nd. The game is available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, Wii, PSP, and will be available soon for the Wii U.

If you pre-ordered the Dynasty Edition from GameStop you got the game, controller skin from Skinit, full-sized basketball from Spalding and Art of Basketball,Ink'd ear buds from Skullcandy, and finally the
dlc All-Star add-on content package presented by Sprite. IGN awarded the game a 9.1, lower than its predecessor NBA 2K12 which received a 9.5.

Does this mean you should not purchase the game? No way, if you enjoy basketball than by all means go for it. Most likely going to be one of the best basketball games out on the market right now.

If you ever decide to stop playing the game since you have to leave the house well pull out your android OS and your iOS devices. Take your basketball games on the go with NBA 2K13. The mobile game is available for $7.99 on the iOS app store for both iPad and iPod, also on the android store.
Facebook Game
Plus for those that play games on Facebook there will be a NBA 2K: MyLIFE which will have a more cartoony feel. NBA Jam!!, probably not in that direction. The Facebook game will link off your stats from the console game you purchase. The game follows your player out of the court and into society. Looks like it'll have a lot of social integration.

Dream Team

Who's your team of choice? Are you enjoying the game so far?
