' Let's buy them all individually so we all can save 2 cents! YEAH!!! '

That's what I have seen in the OP post.

In case the OP didn't understood, the reason why it's costing "less" individual is due to the decimal.

The real prices would be 4,9975\$ for each 19.99\$ at 75%, but they make at an average of 4.99\$ each. (for the one at 9.99\$, it would be 2,4975\$, but it's reduced an average of 2.49\$.)
By buying it individually, you get the "lower average" of 2.49+4.99+4.99= 12,47\$ as you "save" 2 and 1/4 cents.

When you buy the bungle, you get the addition of all full price 19.99+19.99+9.99 = 49,97\$ and get the reduction set after so 49.97x0.25= 12,4925\$ and it's set to its average of 12.49\$

This is how Steam pricing and deals works.

All that drama for 2 cents.

Unless if you live somewhere like Venezuela (where thanks to our currency exchange controls EVERY CENT MATTERS), why care?

Anyway, I would buy the bundle... except that 1) I already have Recettear!, 2) I'm not interested into Fortune Summomers, and 3) I still can't decide on Chantelise.

no drama it just defeats the purpose of a bundle

No it doesn't. People interested in getting all the games can do so with one click, instead of buying them separately. Another thing, paypal / bank transfer charges fee for transactions. So if you get games one by one you will end up wasting cash.

The purpose of buying bundles was always getting a cheaper price, not to have the convenience of buying everything with one click.

Oh ♥♥♥♥ I wasted 2 cents.

Since I'm not interested into trading stuff yet, I just went and bought Chantelise/FS.

2 cents charge PayPal here for every \$5, so I actually now get the magnitude of the problem. But then, I live in a weird country where you have to count every single cent spent so banks and the gub'mint won't assrape you later next year.

Or maybe Steam now does Verizon Math(TM) with bundles?

Lol I am robbed of 2 cents as well and I will not rest until I get justice!
