PSA: New Humble Bundle Has Shadow Complex, Dangerous Golf

Humble Bundle just released another tempting collection of games this week. The Unreal Engine Bundle contains a couple of fan favorites such as Shadow Complex Remastered and Killing Floor.

Paying as little as $1 will net you these two on Steam, plus Dangerous Golf, a golf-ish game featuring extremely destructible environments. Beating the average price gets you The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, The Mean Greens – Plastic Warfare, and ADR1FT. Finally, at $10 you can grab an early access code for The Culling.This deal will be available for the next 13 days, though if you want to save some money, hop on early while the average is still low.

Our Take
I'm always a sucker for these bundles, so I've already grabbed it. I already won Shadow Complex in an auction during our Extra Life stream but with Humble Bundle helping charity, it's hard to pass up on adding these games to my Steam library.

New $900 Batman: Arkham Knight Statue On The Way From Prime 1

Originally released as a limited-edition collectible at Japan's Hot Toys Exhibition in September, Prime 1 Studio's Batman: Arkham Knight statue is now releasing worldwide. The run is limited to just 500 statues, but the lofty $899 price point will probably keep demand in check.

This statue stands in at 34-inches in height, features a flexible cape, along with switchable hands (including one holding the Batclaw). The Batsuit (with the gold emblem) is one of the rarest in Batman: Arkham Knight, and can only be unlocked if the player finishes 240 percent of the game. No Release date has been announced for this cool, but pricey collectible. Keep an eye on Prime 1 Studio's Facebook page for more details in the coming months.

Blizzard Has No Plans To Remaster Old Warcraft Games At This Time

Even though Blizzard is remastering Diablo inside of Diablo III in an upcoming patch, the team has no plans to revisit Warcraft 1 and 2. Blizzard co-founder Frank Pearce told fans during a Q&A session at Blizzcon 2016 that, despite their love for the series, the first Warcraft: Orcs and Humans won't be remastered because it's "just not that fun anymore."

Pearce went on the say that Blizzard still has the original source code for all of its games, which allowed them to look into the possibility of touching up those early Warcraft games.

"We had some dedicated folks that were passionate about the idea, dig up the Warcraft 1 assets and code," said Pearce. "They got it working and they got it running in a window. And I played it. Warcraft: Orcs & Humans was awesome... for its time. I promise you, in today's world, by today's standards, it's just not that fun anymore."

XCOM 2 Patches In Controller Support On PC

XCOM 2 may be one of the best PC games of the year, but its latest update makes it a bit more like its console counterparts. Xbox One and Xbox 360 controller support was patched into XCOM 2 today (along with some minor fixes and tweaks). Other, unspecified controllers will now work too, but will "require additional user adjustments."

"We have been hard at work tailoring the interface specifically for controllers so that it provides a level of comfort and accessibility that our players expect," says Firaxis' Community Manager Dave Hinkle in the Steam news page detailing the patch.

Controller-equipped PC players can also now enable the developer commands and activate a free camera mode, which unhinges the camera. This free roam camera lets players get a closer look at the game's characters and environments and can be used in conjunction with the Replay Mode to set up custom screen shots.
