I guess I will just start a thread to keep track of Star Deals from Fanatical, since they have one every day.
Comment has been collapsed.
good idea - they do seem to be doing them regular as clockwork now
Sega Hard Girls
Sega Hard Girls
They'll have a lot to live up to, if they want to take on the Hard name.
Are those referal links? That isn't allowed there...
The referrals are added automatically by steamgifts as a matter of help funding the site. You can disable them if you want in your profile.
I thougth that referals were from the user that posted, didn't know SG was doing that.
there was a poll on it some time back
the Sega Hard girls pack has both Deluxe back and normal DLCs in addition to the main game (and IIRC they use the Game+Deluxe pack price as a comparison; i.e. it's a pretty decent deal.
For a nep nep game its pretty short. Just nearly 25h for 100%.
Knowing IF, I'd sit out of this deal until the game gets at least a 75% cut. Current deal would be a nice deal for those who plan to play the game right away, though.
Yes, for the price its not worth yet even there are some new features (sprint and crouch (you can see many panties ^^)).
might be a while; IF seems slower to bring out such generous cuts these days. Trillion seems to be an exception for reaching such a point quicker.
It depends on the sale of the game, but they generally start to slash the price down a lot during sales after the first year. More the case for less popular games. However, their sale price for DLCs rarely go down below 50%, so if you care for DLCs, it's best to buy the Deluxe or Complete version all together if there is a good deal.
Thanks for the heads up. Chart updated.
I guess I shouldn't buy anything from IF anymore unless it goes on sale for 80% or more...
I feel you, man. P
Is the Trillion: God of Destruction Deluxe Bundle worth getting for $3.59? I mean I know it's over $30 when not on sale but is it a good game? Is it a lot more combat and gameplay than visual novel(it has a VN tag)?
Checking the list of games which you have played, you should probably sit this one out. From the negative reviews, there are more VN than combat, and the gameplay is turn-based and grid-based strategy game, plus raising simulator.
I actually am a big fan of turn base combat, like old school Final Fantasy, Chrono Cross/Trigger, etc. etc. But I'm definitely not a fan of VN lol
I'd recommend it for people who like the anime flavor stuff. The combat itself is pretty simplistic, but given the game orbits around defeating the big bad which has a trillion hitpoints you need to wittle down over several attempts, it can be pretty tricky. A few surprising little feels in there due to the VN aspect, occasional moments of surprise fanservice, good music, but a bit grindy.
I enjoyed it for what it was, and paid £6 when I got it. Definitely not for everyone though.
I do really enjoy RPGs and the story as long as there is combat. Is it an actual VN with combat or an actual RPG? I don't mind some anime type stuff like Vampire Hunter D, Akira, and Ninja Scroll. I enjoyed this sort of turn based anime type game called Disgaea a lot. Is it similar to that at all?
I think I should probably just watch some of a walkthrough on youtube.
The gameplay is pretty much a raising simulator with VN conversation happening between various tasks, but occasionally you'll get a combat situation on a tile-based map which is really simplistic. At set intervals you are shown far in advance, you need to send the companion you have been training to try attacking the massive slowly approaching boss monster to gradually take it down. The boss thing is what you're mostly there for, but there is a lot of repetition and a lot of raising/VN style bits. The actual gameplay is just a side-dish that doesn't have much to it. So yeah, it's not really an RPG as much as it is a raising sim-VN hybrid dealio.
If I'm not mistaken, the music and the visual designs are by the folks behind Disgaea (which explains how cool the few background tunes are, along with the characters all being waifu / husbando bait).
I don't know of any good walkthroughs on youtube though, and I wonder how they'd deal with the grind of the raising parts to make it interesting to watch.
If you don't care about the DLC of trillion (wich is just wallpaper, soundtrack, ... ), you should go to the humble store, because it's cheaper there :) At least in my currency (euro)
Regardless, I recommend Trillion for anime fans. A little grindy but totally worth it for the Disgaea underworld vibes and good music.
Also VN-grade mini-feels <3
Yeah, I bought it in the steam winter sale, but haven't played yet :(
After my exams I will start grinding :P
Fanatical says that Trillion is locked for KP/KR/JP/TW, but I haven't found any proofs on steamdb.info. So, most likely lock = Fanatical doesn't sell it in those Countries, but game can be activated and played there.
Thanks, and updated.
the region lock isnt fake the key has the same app id as the store and follows wherever its unavailable on the store
not available in KP/KR/JP/TW,
the base game will have the same app id as the store
I'm not sure how the region lock works with key activation. Is it based solely on the restriction in the package (none here), or is it combined with whether the game is available in the regional store?
its dependent on the sub id , https://steamdb.info/sub/138539/ this is the sub id when you buy from the steam store and can also be used for key activations , if the key is generate from the store sub id it follows the same restrictions as the store
Post edited. Thanks.
"not available in KP/KR/JP/TW" - I don't see such restrictions in subscription's information: https://steamdb.info/sub/138539/info/
If you refer to no price for Japan, Korea and Taiwan, then it means only that game can't be bought from steam store in those Countries, but it shouldn't affect cd keys. Moreover, it should affect only ability to buy from regional steam store, so I bet that gift, which was bought from US (as example) can be activated in Japan fine.
For example, I own this subscription: https://steamdb.info/sub/153/
It was bought as gift (from outside Russia) and I activated it on my account from Russia, despite of fact that it can't be bought from Russian steam store.
Steam gifts are restricted the same way I replied above you can try it out and you will see it
Steam gifts used to not have any but now they follow the same restrictions as the store page
Yes, restrictions on gifting from steam store became more strict, but it has nothing to do with cd keys.
Also those new restrictions are not applicable to old gifts in inventory.
For gifting from steam store prices in sender's and recipient's regions are compared and if difference is more than 10% (or around that), then you can't gift. So, no price - check fails.
For cd keys there is no such check (no purchase from store), so absence of store price shouldn't matter.
I'm not aware of changes in that regard. If you do know such please provide me some link to steam announcement and/or forum discussion.
I'm not aware of changes in that regard
I'm not aware of changes in that regard
there never was any changes , its how it always worked , ive traded with ppl from JP/KR that arent able to activate these keys , so if you must know if it actually works you can just try to test it urself with VPN
here ill give you an example tell me what this keys says when you try to activate it VMLKA-5H27P-XE43Q
if you are from russian you wont be able to activate it , its this sub https://steamdb.info/sub/84207/
That's wrong example: https://steamdb.info/sub/84207/info/ clearly states that it's locked.
I'm talking about subscriptions without any restrictions on info tab.
"its how it always worked" - from my previous experience game, which is not available in local steam store, can be activated by key or gift from other region - I gave you one example (https://steamdb.info/sub/153/) and can add more. That may be changed at any time, therefore I ask you about some announcements/discussions.
"ive traded with ppl from JP/KR that arent able to activate these keys" - do you mean Trillion or some other game?
Can you explain me where do you see information about locked Countries here https://steamdb.info/sub/138539/?
What about games removed from steam store?
They don't have prices, store pages and can't be bought from steam any longer, but can be activated by gifts or keys.
yeah nvm i guess its not locked the older games published by IF did have locks on those regions thought this one was the same
Sadly, showing up as full price for me. There's a banner that says the sale is running for another 12+ hours, but price is not discounted at all.
maybe discounted keys sold out?
I'd think it would say that they keys are sold out ... but with 1,000 days and the sale having run for 11 hours, you could be right.
They already sold 60% of the keys in the first 4-5 hours, so it probably sold out.
that's pretty sucky to run out that fast
Updated chart with new deal.
Thanks for the thread and keep up the good work :-)
How much would "don't have enough VRAM" be? System requirements only recommend 1GB.
Do you mind telling what card you were using previously when you encountered the crashes?
I was running the game in VM (to isolate it from the main machine), so it was using the integrated graphic (Intel HD Graphics 530). The VM was allocating a small amount of VRAM by default, which causes the crash. Crash related to low VRAM no longer happens once I increase the VRAM on VM at/above minimum requirement. However, the game still crashes/freeze due to other bugs once in a while, I guess due to race condition.
Hm, I have the base game but not the DLC. Not sure if this is worth rebuying for the DLC
If you can find someone to take the base game, sure. The DLCs from IF games only get good deal occasionally.
Yeah I thought about that but I'd probably have trouble selling off the base game since it's been cheap so many times.

Thanks a bunch for the thread nhahtdh:) This is really helpful, I'd definitely forget to check otherwise.
You are getting two steam redeemable keys. One is for the base game, another for all DLC.
Good, because I was looking only for DLC. ˭̡̞(◞⁎˃ᆺ˂)◞*✰
Also, how the hell I have missed Superdimension Neptune VS Sega? ‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥⌓˂̣̣̥ )‧º·˚
Knowing IF, they will put it on sale with deep discount during this year or the next...
Just a matter of time; that or Fanatical doing something like this again (This isn't the first time the noire game's been a star deal but that time it was just the game itself)
Damn today's deal is a steal but I already blew my budget on the IF sale on Humble instead XD
because SEA occasional highest discount still expensive
Updated with new deal.
Thanks for making this thread and keeping it updated.
That's a really good Star Deal for Book of Demons, I highly recommend it. There's a demo on the Steam Store page for anyone curious about the game. http://store.steampowered.com/app/449960/Book_of_Demons/
Hope you don't mind me quoting your recommendation. :)
No, I don't mind at all :)
I confirm, great game !
Also, you keep your progression from demo :-)
So give it a try if you hesitate !
I agree, amazing game and for the playtime you get out of it, it's a steal at $12.
Seconded Thirded. I especially loved the feature called Flexiscope, which lets you choose how long you want to play for and then generates a dungeon based on that and what it learned about your playing style before, trying to give you a full experience for a playsession according to how much time you have.
I didn't explain it well (sleep-deprived today), but it's great ;)
I think you did a good job at explaining the feature. And I agree it definitely is a great feature to have.
Any discount codes?
No idea. They would usually post one on the main page if there is any, though.
Loved the looks from the Book of Demons game. Like old Fallout game
New Star Deal - 75% off Crazy Machine 3.. only $4.99 for 24 hours or till keys run out.
Post updated. Thanks.
Crazy Machines 3 looks good, but I probably want to wait until it's bundled.
