Well, I've paused 6/9 months this year. I traded an old bundle key with someone, and in return, I got Fort Triumph.
I can vouch for Heaven's Vault but it's not a headliner. Narita Boy got a lot of hype that ended in nothing.Oh wow, they've been giving some false hopes with a couple ok'ish choice months, but the September Humble Choice looks like utter shit once again. PGA Tour 2K21 as a headliner, jesus christ. Even the indie stuff looks like total bundle fodder. Do correct me if there's anything worthwhile there though.
Not For Broadcast, Roki, Atomicrops, Heaven's Vault and Framed all have 90%+ of positive reviews on Steam.PGA Tour 2K21

Shit month at a first glance, but it turns out six of these games are on my gg.deals wishlist for one reason or another. Getting them for $2 each is probably not the worst deal, even if I don't care about the other six.
That was basically my exact same line of thought. Initially thought it looked bad, but then there were 5 games in the list I was at least a bit interested in and if any of them individually were on sale for $2 I'd probably feel okay buying them so they nabbed me. Not the greatest bundle deal but the threshold to be worth $2 is low enough it's worth a roll of the dice. Usually there'll be one game in those Humble bundles that nearly sells the bundle to me by itself and everything else is gravy, this didn't have anything I was excited about but a lot of smaller games I wouldn't mind looking at at least.Shit month at a first glance, but it turns out six of these games are on my gg.deals wishlist for one reason or another.

I was pleasantly surprised by Mindseize some months ago, it's really an excellent metroidvania. Superb exploration, shitton of upgrades, multiple worlds with distinct themes and specific enemy rosters. It's almost straight up emulating Metroid's movement and combat (outside of melee weapons) and that's a plus as far as I'm concerned.Will give one slightly odd recommendation though, Glass Masquerade. I snagged both of those games, Mindseize, and some garbage (Since 5's the same price as 3) from this bundle and Glass Masquerade's quite pleasant for turning your brain off and doing jigsaws. Relaxing music, nice art, pleasing sound and UI. Grabbed it on a whim since I'd also heard that Mindseize is supposed to be decent to good and surprisingly enough it really hit the spot. Probably because I've been deprived of Popcap for good relaxing casual games.
Solid balance, roughly an hour long for a good run, and player skill has a particularly large impact on it. There isn't much in the way of unlocking when it comes to StS (Each class can unlock a few relics and a few cards, but you unlock them after a few plays so it's less of a continual goal and more "Here's the class with some of the weirder mechanics held back so you can get the basic gist of it"). Player skill having a larger impact on it than, say, Erannorth is because StS is a much more contained experience. Erannorth's got umpteen encounter compositions so there's no realistic way to plan for the future. Further, a lot of the encounters in StS will specifically punish and be punished by certain deck compositions, so you might want to take a card to strengthen yourself against X future encounter even though it might weaken you in Y encounter. Encounters in Erannorth usually aren't as punishing based on your deck composition. You might be playing a rogue and focusing on bleed and run into undead so you're SOL, but that's one of the more extreme examples and a little easier to build around (Namely, making sure you have some non-bleed shit). In STS an enemy might power each time you attack, or each time you play a card, and "Playing lots of cards" and "Making lots of attacks" are common mechanics among the classes so even if you're not as skilled playing one class you have a decent idea you might run into that kind of enemy during your run and can pick cards accordingly.Can anyone explain why they like StS so much? I won a handful of runs and the deckbuilding aspect was just meh. Maybe as you unlocked more cards, but I'd rather play dunno...Erannorth instead.
John Wick Hex is really good
