Oh dear, I see THQ have filed for bankruptcy! I guess despite the millions this sale made it still wasn't enough.

This sale wasn't an attempt to stave off bankruptcy you know.  In fact, a rather hefty chunk of the revenue goes to charity (and Humble Bundle itself).

They've been in the red for a while, since far earlier this year.  And if you read THQ's press release, they already have a new investor who's agreed to come on board and get them back in the black.  They're not going to be eaten by EA.

Yep, there's nothing nefarious or cynical about what THQ did.

I already own Company of Heroes (all of them) but I bought this again just as an excuse to donate to charity and add it to my Steam library. I don't know if I will ever play the other games. If i'd thought about it I would have bought it as a gift for someone else and offered it here on Geekzone. In the future I will do that I think!

Humble Bundles are great, if I already have most of the games I pay for it anyway and choose my donation to go all to charity (+ a Humble Bundle tip for operating expensses). If not, I just leave it as per normal. I'm not a rich guy or anything, I pay just over the average, but I do it with every Humble Bundle that comes out. It's a great way of getting Indie games that you might not buy separately yourself, as well as being all-round great thing.
