My personal take
The star of today’s gaming haul is doubtlessly the latest iteration of Fanatical’s Platinum Collection, their line of ‘premium’ BYOBs. And that’s because it’s the only …game in town for the day.
What premium means in this context is that the price starts at 3.33 Euros per key, and can go down to a whopping… cough 2.86 Euros.
While small, the discount has been tuned so that the seventh game is effectively free, versus buying two sets of three keys.
The bundle contains 20 items, 16 of which are Steam keys, and the remainder are uPlay, namely AssCreed 1, Revelations and Brotherhood, plus Rayman Origins.
Beyond the dry numbers, I cannot say in all honesty this bundle gets my heart to skip a beat; the selection ranges from rather dull, to insulting: Thief, Vermintide and Tomb Raider have been much chaper than this and would IMO have no place in a bundle of this kind, the only role they’re playing is to mislead the less attentive.
There’s a lot of repeats, too, Blacksad only shows as unbundled because someone at ITAD forgot about the much better Killer 17 Bundle, apparently, and I have no idea what the heck happened to Tomb Raider.
The only highlight would be Grey Alien’s Shadowhand, but that one, too, has been cheaper in sales than it is here.
