Both C&C Generals and it's expansion pack, Zero Hour, have been included the latest Humble Origin Bundle. Also part of the bundle is Dragon Age: Origins, Peggle, Dead Space 2, Medal of Honor Allied Assault War Chest and more. Remember, with Humble Bundle you pay what you want. At retail, these games add up to $134. But you choose to what to pay. If you decide to pay more than the average to get all of those games you will also get Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, Dragon Age II, Bejeweled 3, and Mass Effect 2.
