Two more RPG Bundle offers - Mutants and Masterminds

Two offers for Mutants and Masterminds, one of the better superhero RPGs - one is a re-run of the essential game stuff, the other is all new and (unusually for these bundles) doesn't ask you to spend more to get additional material.

Last time the core bundle was offered I said

M&M compares reasonably well to other superhero RPGs; it's based on the Open Games License e.g. D&D so a lot of players will be able to pick it up fairly easily, and it plays about as well. I tend to prefer GURPS Supers or Champions if I'm playing, simply because they seem to be a slightly better fit to the genre, and if I'm running something I'd probably use homebrew rules based on Diana: Warrior Princess, but that's mainly because I wrote the system and know it backwards. For a newcomer with some familiarity with other OGL games this may well be a better fit, and as always you get a hell of a lot for the money. Recommended, subject to all the usual YMMV caveats.

I don't see any reason to change that.
