2019-02-18 and 19 Bioshock Infinite + Season Pass ?% keys left -78% @ 7.95/10.99/10.99/12.19/15.39/749 - Separate keys (?) for base game and season pass

Overwhelmingly Positive FPS game with story. Base game bundled twice, season pass available in Pick and Mix for as low as $4 flat split price.

Lowest historical and beat previous lowest by $0.5. However, the Bioshock Collection has better value, and occasionally goes on sale for $12, so the current Star Deal is a bad deal.

I do the chart daily but I rarely buy any of these deals. If you bought the deal and find discrepancies with the information provided here, feel free to post correction in the discussion below.

Since expiredDeals was removed, I sometimes forgot to check the deal at the last minute to record the number of key sold...

Star Deal Archive

FAQ

Where do you get the number of keys to to sell and sold?

From their API endpoint. Those information is loaded every time you visit their site, just that it's not shown explicitly on the page.

I normally open the web page and use Developer Tool to look at the request, though, since I also need the link to the store page on Fanatical and Steam.

On 2018-04-06, the API endpoint has been updated to remove the expiredDeals entry, so some of the later deals may not have exact number of keys sold, or no data on number of keys sold when I forgot to check it.

On 2018-05-02, the API endpoint has been updated to remove the number of keys available and number of keys sold, only rounded percentage is returned to the client side. We can only know the amount of keys uploaded from the notes returned in the API. The actual amount of keys allocated for Star Deal is unknown, but can be guessed from previous Star Deals.

On 2018-05-22, the API endpoint has been updated to remove all traces of the number of keys.

On 2018-06-29, Fanatical starts to support AUD.

On 2018-08-10, Fanatical starts to support RUB.

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.

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)?

1 year ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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

1 year ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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.

1 year ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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.

1 year ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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.

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.

"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

Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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.

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.

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?

1 year ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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.
