Briefly: Moon Men, Cheap Adventure Games, Veggie Noodle Hacks

Brief news items of note for Lifehacker readers, including: Get 13 adventure games for $9, a short history of every man who’s ever walked on the moon, are Michael Bay’s Transformers movies really that bad?

  • This week’s Humble Bundle focuses on the games of Ukraine developer Frogwares. Pay under $6 and you’ll receive seven adventure games. Pay more than the average and you’ll also get the Sherlock Holmes titles Nemesis, The Awakened, The Secret of the Silver Earring and Mystery of the Mummy. If you contribute $9 or more, you’ll also score Magrunner: Dark Pulse and Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper. As always, you can choose who gets the lion’s share of your money: Humble Bundle, the developers or the nominated charity. For more online deals, head to our Hump Day Bargains page.
