Where will this Journey lead you?

[Buy 3] Just collecting some Scraps for my Steam Garden... Don't mind me...
[Buy 5] Some of these games look very Sexy to me.
[Buy 8] Forward to The big purchase!
[Have] This is The Day The Staff Found too many repeats to pick for this bundle.
[Skip] I Want To Play, but better games than these / for a lower price.
[Complaint] I Distrust the staff's taste in games...

Some nice indie games here, but the fact that I already have them sure means they have already been bundled a lot before.
Are you sure that they offer The Lion's Song (that is free) and not its Season Pass?
Thank you for the post, as usual! :D

You're right, it was a mistake from my part. I fixed the chart.

if most of their staff actually picked these games. i have to conclude that fanatical is run by a bunch of non-gamers haha

Calling this bunch of old leftover stuff "staff picks" is....well, it's a lie isn't it?

Staff put the names of all the games on slips of paper, threw them in a bowl, and picked them while blindfolded

The only way you can get them for cheaper is if all 3 were a part of a $1 bundle OR all bundled with many more games that might split the cost per game down further.

IMO these are different enough & not done by the same devs such that I wouldnt count on them being in a $1 bundle together, so you'd have to hope for a bigger outright staff picks bundle.
$1 bundles from Fanatical tend to be the same devs or bundle trash, which these games arent strictly speaking - They're just chronic repeats in bundles.

Thank you for the answer :) I was comparing them with my regional prices, and that's why I wasn't sure if they're cheap enough or will they go even lower. But yes, your answer makes perfect sense!

I can see total 31 games including Slain: Back from Hell.
Is that region locked?

All 3 of the base game's Steam subs that Fanatical could possibly have a key for appear to have no region restrictions or exclusivity: https://steamlocked.com/app/369070

Generally stores like Fanatical will list any region restrictions on a game' s page

They must've added it later. It wasn't there the first time I looked.

Fanatical lists Reus as windows only. Steam says it's also for mac. I've noticed Fanatical does this fairly often. Does anyone know why?

I think they just have it indexed the wrong way. As long as they deliver a Steam key, the platforms should be taken from the Steam Store page.

Huh. I never considered that it could be a simple error. But yeah, it'll definitely work if Steam says it will--I got XCOM and a few other things that had the same kind of error in their listing and never had any trouble with them.

I agree in this case, but based on a support experience I had regarding a game that appeared to be Mac only, I think Fanatical is sometimes more specific than we think about some of their "Mac only" game listings, or sometimes they're really stupid about them...

I got a COD:MW game from a mystery bundle. I happened to look up Fanatical's store page for the game, and it only listed that it supported Mac. I contacted Fanatical support and asked if it is compatible with PC, and they specifically said it is a Mac version and only a Mac product. I then asked if my mystery bundle key would work for PC, and they said they were "unable to accurately say if it is or not" but they would replace the key for me if it doesn't work on my PC.

It was so weird...the only thing I can think of is that perhaps they have an agreement with the publisher to only market the game as Mac only? I say that because Fanatical isn't the only digital key store that has a Mac only listing.

No buy for me. The only game I really want is The Crown of Leaves.
