Guilty Gear Rev 2 screenshot of a duel between two characters

If you ignored the previous Humble Bundle because you're looking for something a bit more fast-paced than a classic cRPG, you might want to check out today's bundle. Despite having "Brawler" in the title it doesn't feature any actual brawlers, but there is a variety of fighting games on offer, some of which might just be up your alley.

You have games such as BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend and Skullgirls on the "pay what you want" tier, as well as Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- and Rivals of Aether on the highest tier. Rather than just babble on, allow me to share with you the list of games, as well as the tier they appear in. Have a look:

Pay what you want:

GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE CORE PLUS R

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend

Skullgirls

Pay more than the average of $5.50 (about €4.47) to also unlock:

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!!

Street Fighter X Tekken

Pay $9 (about €7.32) or more to also unlock:

GUILTY GEAR Xrd -SIGN-

Rivals of Aether

I'm not much of a fighting game fan, so while I would love to give you some advice about this bundle I'm afraid my opinions are about as relevant as the pavement's. The one thing I can tell you, however, is that BlazBlue, Skullgirls and Guilty Gear all have a fairly large cult following, though what exactly makes them so good I simply don't know.

Additionally, if you're uncertain I'd recommend going with the first tier in order to test the waters as it has a nice spread of games, and then moving on up if you find yourself liking some of them. Even in the worst case scenario you'll only be down a couple of dollars, so it's not the worst thing in the world. And on the other hand you might just find yourself liking a previously unknown series, so I'd say its worth the risk, provided you enjoy fighting games anyway. Have fun!
