Mecha Ritz: Steel Rondo and its OST are 30% off on Steam until April 15th. The Soundtrack Edition is 40% off. These are the only sales on the first and last apart from 15% off on the Humble Store and Steam, respectively. The OST has never been on sale by itself.

Anybody knows if the Steam version is a standalone binary?

I'm curious to know the differences between it and the version you can download for free in the high score thread (besides being in English).

There are alternate versions of each stage except the first (2A/2B, 3A/3B, etc.), double the number of ship choices, retuned rank system, and altered scoring mechanics.

And that answers that. Thanks.

Does the OST contain old tracks as well?

And asking again: Does it run without Steam?

Thanks for confirming! Bought it and works perfectly without Steam.

I even adapted my stupid "ranklock" hack to Steel Rondo -- sets min and max rank limits, for practice purposes. Feel free to download and enjoy!

Theory posted yesterday that Battle Garrega was down to ¥3890 in the BATTLE GAREGGA REV.2016 (M2) thread. This was effectively a return to the previous low experienced before a temporary rebound to ~¥6500. It's down to ¥2980 at the moment.

(Is this a good port?)

Back down to $4.99. Not as great a deal as August last year when it was apparently a price error, given that the game has been 66% off a number of times since. But if you're on the fence...

Posting, as I think consider it an STG: Downwell is available for a historically low $0.99, DRM-free on GOG.

Also, DLsite has some random games at 30% to 80% off + 20% back, also DRM-free. The most interesting are Astro Port's Wolflame and Zangeki Warp, which are an estimated $6.79 apiece before 20% back.

Caladrius Blaze is also in the PS4 sale. However it appears that there's something weird going on with discounts, or PS4 sucks at math:

It's not sales tax, as I can add other non-discounted items and they add up correctly.

The Humble Store has Mecha Ritz: Steel Rondo at 30% off, for those of you who were holding out for a DRM-free copy in addition to a Steam one.

Guwange and Space Giraffe are both 75% off at xbox.com, or $2.49 and $1.24 respectively. I don't think either has ever been on sale. Ikaruga is also $2.49, which I'm guessing is 75% off. Searched for every other US 360 non-twinstick STG and DLC (Hutari) I could think of – what a terrible interface – and didn't find anything else.

[Edit: Strania and R-Type Dimensions are also $2.49 each.]

Here's the full list.

Too add to your post, Triggerheart Excelica is also on sale for $2.49. NIN2-JUMP, while not a shmup, is on sale for its lowest price yet ($1.24).

Got Guwange and rebought Ikaruga for the alternative Radiant Silvergun mode. Bummer that Hard Corps Uprising didn't make the sale, and that Raiden Fighters Aces isn't BC yet.

Although goody some titles are part of the practically the one and only time they'll ever be discounted for this week only. Shame that Bullet Soul (both of them) isn't part of the sale. Since they have been now part of the BC line. (Though IIRC, they have been on sale in the past.)

SNK sale on GOG includes Twinkle Star Sprites and Blazing Star. I don't know if those ports are any good, though.

I'm not sure on Blazing Star, since no screens show how they ported it. But I know for sure that TSS on there is a copy of the Steam Version, because it has the same "Lets Start" intro screen.
