Humble Sega Strategy Bundle is filled with RTS goodness

I'm loving this new system Humble Bundle has implemented. Instead of a constant barrage of mediocre bundles, we now get less frequent, but almost always exciting collections.

Today's Humble Bundle is Sega themed and filled to the brim with classic strategy games, ranging from Company of Heroes, to Shining Force, and even the Dawn of War series. Here's what exactly you get from each tier, and a short recommendation on what to grab:

1$ or more to unlock:

$12 or more to unlock:

   - Ardennes Assault

   - Case Blue Mission Pack

   - Southern Fronts Mission Pack

   - Victory At Stalingrad Mission Pack

   - Western Front Armies - US Forces

   - Western Front Armies - OBW Forces

   - British Forces

Its difficult to suggest which tier is the best value for your money considering that the majority of the games listed above are, simply put, RTS classics. If you have little interest in RTS games, but want to give them a shot regardless, give the $1+ tier a try as every single game in that collection is well worth the time to experience.

However, if you consider yourself well versed in the RTS genre, yet somehow haven't played any of these games, then by all means go for the second tier as Dawn of War 2, Valkyria Chronicles and Shogun 2 are all bound to suck up your life quicker than a Dementor ever would.

The third tier, while still a massive discount, is a bit shaky given that Company of Heroes 2 is still nowhere near the excellence of its predecessor. If you do decide to grab this tier, make sure its either because you love the COH series, or because you want to give Total War: Attila a shot.

Have fun!
