Fanatical offering a nice bundle of Steam Deck Verified games

By - | Views: 16,377

After some more games that should work great on the Steam Deck and so Linux desktop too? Fanatical have a fun looking bundle of games ready for you. Seems they took a hint from the recent bundle that Humble Bundle did. This is a sort-of build your own bundle, with the ability to add up to a total of 8 games from the selection with savings at 3, 5 or 8 picks.

Here's what you can pick from:

  • Beholder 1 and 2 (double pack)
  • Blacksad
  • CHASM
  • Evan’s Remains
  • Gray Dawn
  • JYDGE
  • Lovecraft's Untold Stories
  • Murder by Numbers
  • Party Hard 2
  • Rising Hell
  • SIMULACRA
  • Sexy Brutale
  • Shadow Tactics
  • Skeletal Avenger
  • Tesla Force
  • The Textorcist
  • The Vagrant
  • Yoku's Island Express

Down the bottom it does include a disclaimer, that ratings for games played on Steam Deck can change over time so all the titles included were Verified when it went live.

Check out the bundle here. We're not affiliated with Fanatical currently, just showing off a good deal tip.

If you want to become Fanatical affiliate here's a link about it: https://support.fanatical.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001415777-Affiliate-Partner-FAQ

Might bring GamingOnLinux a few extra bucks at least, maybe covering some tea expenses

I don't know how Textorcist made it onto the Verified list. That game freezes for a few seconds as soon as you type above 60wpm (this makes it difficult to dodge bullets), not to mention it's a typing game controlled entirely by the keyboard while simultaneously being a bullet hell. Protondb reviews mention input lag, which I don't remember, but I wouldn't be surprised if it had. How this makes a worthwhile experience on the Steam Deck, I do not know.

I had a decent time with it on a desktop despite these flaws. The writing and story is mediocre, but I think it's one of the better typing games.

There's an official announcement from the developers that it was Verified, but again, I really have no idea how such a clearly keyboard-centric game would make a good experience on the Steam Deck (even putting aside the bugs): https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/940680/view/3173356392642099069

But, TIL there's DLC for Textorcist. Nice to know.

Apparently someone has tried this on the Steam Deck but I don't really understand their explanation of their experience: https://steamcommunity.com/id/Chadworthy/recommended/940680/
Fanatical: Pick up to 8 games to get a discount!

Me: Picks all the games + adds a couple others from another bundle because I didn't have any of them *facepalm*.

It's almost as bad as with Steam, I didn't have any of the Assassin's Creed games on PC, I only have them on that old piece of junk* PS3 I had, so steam had the whole collection on deal last weekend, so ended up picking up every AC game I could on steam for £124 in total, on the flip side I now have every AC game, excluding that epic exclusive one (Which is a good deal, considering without the discount you're talking 300+)

* Piece of junk because I had 3 different PS3's die on me, including an original launch day 60GB. Then they topped it off by loosing all PSN user data in a security breach... I refuse to buy any Sony products after that.
