Steam Autumn Sale starts tomorrow....

#51 Posted by BeachThunder (12987 posts) -

It's up :D

Now go buy Walking Dead if you haven't already :P

#52 Posted by c0l0nelp0c0rn1 (1955 posts) -

@BeachThunder: Planning on it, but I've got to wait for the prices to stop being broken.

#53 Posted by david3cm (677 posts) -

On the main page it doesn't show the discount or discounted price, or how long the flash sales have until they expire. Anyone else having this issue?

#54 Posted by BaneFireLord (3078 posts) -

GO GO GO!

@BeachThunder:

I'd totally get The Walking Dead if I wasn't spoiled what happens in episode 4 in the comment section of an ILM video! Sadly, none of the other sales do anything for me.

#56 Posted by MaFoLu (1868 posts) -

Just finished the last episode of The Walking Dead, and all I can say is...
BUY THAT NOW!

#57 Posted by llamaegg (232 posts) -

On one hand, super pumped to see a new Steam sale, on the other, now that my account is showing 305 games I'm finding myself finding less and less to buy!

#58 Posted by jonnybob (181 posts) -

Pricing seems to be broken for now, a daily deal that lasts 48 hours eh? And the price doesn't say the discounted price.

#59 Posted by Witzig (359 posts) -

It has begun.

#60 Posted by ervonymous (1299 posts) -

Playing all of The Walking Dead back to back is probably a terrible idea but I'm willing to try! The one sale I was looking for.

#61 Posted by RazielCuts (3052 posts) -

@jonnybob: Yeah I'm getting prices saying discounted then you click on the game page and its the normal price.

#62 Posted by MikkaQ (10296 posts) -

No it doesn't, no it doesn't, shut up, shut up, shut up!

#63 Posted by c0l0nelp0c0rn1 (1955 posts) -

@ervonymous: Have tissues, ice cream, and a copy of your favorite feel-good movie and you may survive.

I can already see this going terribly, terribly wrong.

#65 Posted by Sanity (2042 posts) -

@GS_Dan: Hey, Gods and Kings is on sale at green man gaming for the next day or so for like 10 bucks, less if you use the cupon code on top of that. Dont think steam will go much cheaper then that.

Not a ton i want this time around, im on the fence with the walking dead as i dont think i'll get to it soon so i may just wait until the holiday sale. If TL 2 goes up as a daily sale or flash sale i'll get that for sure.

@ervonymous: Just embrace your inner Chris Crocker and film it, and then you'll be an internet celebrity forever.

#67 Posted by BeachThunder (12987 posts) -

Zeno Clash is a dollar. Go get it if you like strange things.

#68 Posted by mandude (2670 posts) -

Is anyone else getting the price in both dollars and in pounds?

#69 Edited by PeasantAbuse (5094 posts) -

Nice, I'll be buying The Walking Dead later today.

There's actually a bunch of stuff I'm hoping to get during this, which is kind of weird because I didn't really want anything during the summer sale this year.

@mandude: Yeah, some pages are showing dollars and others are showing pounds for me.

#70 Posted by atomic_dumpling (2510 posts) -

I took Mark of the Ninja for 25% off. I don't think it'll pop up as flash sale later. If it does, I am a fool.

#71 Posted by djou (895 posts) -

Yeah, I was getting pounds instead of dollars but it still checked out okay. I logged out and logged back and the currency was fixed.

I was also not seeing the discount initially when I put the games in my cart but the discount was applied when I checked out.

Some fucking awesome deals, got Critter Crunch of $1.24 and loaded up on a bunch of other games. Dead Island GOTY ($10!), Cave Story, Terraria, Mark of the Ninja, pid, Rochard, Shatter, Stacking, Everyday Shooter and a load of others. Basically many weird indie games I've been eyeing but didn't buy for one reason or another.

#72 Posted by Happenstance (491 posts) -

Got myself a copy of KOTOR 2 so far. As usual I'll only buy things from the daily or flash sales and then get everything else Im interested in on the last day.

#73 Posted by TeflonBilly (4742 posts) -

Well that was swell, lotsa games on my Wishlist were 25-75% off so I already picked up 5 games. Damn you Gaben!

Also, finding your Wishlist was a lot trickier all of a sudden. It's not on the front page of the store when you start up Steam. Seems to be a little glitchiness in the works (one of the page slisted the prices in PBRY or something like that), but I had no trouble getting the games for the price I wanted.

#74 Posted by GetEveryone (4531 posts) -

Anybody find any sweet deals? Bear in mind not everything is advertised.

Also, are the 'daily' deals 48 hours long?

#75 Posted by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

Oh man, I'm so mad at myself. Being broke during a Steam sale sucks. If there's one thing I'm getting before it ends on the 27th, it's the Army of the Czech Republic expansion for Arma2CO.

#76 Posted by hidys (1063 posts) -

Just bought The Walking Dead.

#77 Posted by Happenstance (491 posts) -

@GetEveryone: I think thats just a mistake, it says at the top "new deals each day through November 26"

#78 Posted by Ben_H (3545 posts) -

You can get both KOTORs for $5 right now. You are losing money not getting that. 
 
I myself am getting KOTOR2 and XCOM. I doubt XCOM will get any cheaper as the prices on the daily deals usually match the prices on the flash sales.

#79 Edited by Chrjz (367 posts) -

Kotor II, thank you very much.

Zeno clash is 90% off for anyone who wants to give that a shot; I would definitely say it's worth 99 cents.

As predicted. Nothing on sale I don't already own or care to buy. Looking through my backlogs I can't even think of a game I want that I don't own now. It's a weird feeling.

#81 Posted by Butano (1844 posts) -

Hmm...Kotor II and Walking Dead I'll pick up. I'm betting XCOM will be a little cheaper in the Winter sale.

You know it will now....

Anyway, that game is a steal even for $15, it's crazy good.

Edit: steal, not steam

I had that experience too. There's only about few games I'm looking for from this sale, and I already got one of them. I own all of the featured indie games but one. 
 
I'm only looking to get Torchlight 2, Skyrim DLC (only if it is really cheap), XCOM (already got it), Castle Crashers (that game is so much fun), and if it gets super cheap, AC3 (which won't happen).
 
That's a great deal for AoE3. That game has its flaws, but it still is quite fun. It is a much less intimidating RTS than Starcraft but still can be a good experience online.
#85 Posted by TwoLines (2991 posts) -

I'll wait with Mark of the Ninja (daily sale?), but I'm totally buyin' The Walking Dead!

#86 Posted by c0l0nelp0c0rn1 (1955 posts) -

@Ben_H: You'd probably be better off playing AoE online though, right?

Anyway, I picked up the Walking Dead. Hopefully Hotline Miami and Arkham City DLC will warrant a deeper discount.

#87 Posted by Deathshroud (402 posts) -

I really hope Borderlands 2 goes on sale for more then 25% off . please oh please

#88 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5094 posts) -

@GenocidalKitten said:

Do games sometimes go down in price twice?

Because, I was hoping to buy skyrim but, it's still $40 and that doesn't include the DLC, I already bought it and the DLC on 360.

And I don't want to steal it because I want to BUY the next DLC for it.

Yes, if it becomes a daily deal it will be cheaper.

Is that $12.49 copy of The Walking Dead all 5 episodes or is it just part 1?

@Deathshroud said:

That's what I'm contemplating as well. I could get it now but I almost want to wait.

Also, I'm probably getting KOTOR 2. I've heard good things about Audiosurf but I can't tell what the fuck it is.

#90 Posted by Cashewual (176 posts) -

@believer258: I think it's all 5, not 100% sure though. You should pick it up nontheless.

#91 Posted by TwoLines (2991 posts) -

@believer258: All of 'em. I'm, like, 93% sure.

#92 Posted by living4theday258 (692 posts) -

@Armoes said:

Hmmm.

I was waiting for a sale, but just bought XCOM at full price a couple days ago. Oh well, fun game. (Also, I don't know yet if it would go on sale anyway.)

it did go on sale for $33.49

Aye bought it from GMG this afternoon, thanks for the heads up anyway :-D
#94 Posted by OhpMckenzie (23 posts) -

I Just bought XCOM a few days ago :(

Picked up Torchlight 2 for myself and The Walking Dead as a Christmas gift for someone. No more sales plz Gaben my wallet can't take it

#95 Posted by Mystyr_E (1349 posts) -

If I had the money, I'd pick up these:

Dishonored

X-Com: EU

Analogue: a Hate Story

Kotor 2

#96 Posted by FrankieSpankie (228 posts) -

Heh, nothing I'm LOOKING for to go on sale. That means I'll probably only get 4 games this sale!

#97 Posted by MacEG (277 posts) -

The Walking Dead and X-COM.

Darksiders II would be a good deal.

AoEIII was 10 cents on GFWL back when it started so already picked that bad boy up.

Mark of the Ninja is good but I have it for the box though. :/

I have Renegade Ops if anyone is up for a trade. PM me!

#98 Posted by spankingaddict (2799 posts) -

Does anyone know if Aquaria ever goes on sale ? I'd love to play it now , but not if it drops soon . It seems like it never does ..

#99 Posted by gla55jAw (2763 posts) -

Picked up Hotline Miami. Went to get Limbo also, but I already own it. Nice! Thinking about Torchlight II, but I have a feeling it will get cheaper during the week.

Title : Steam autumn sale starts tomorrow

Post Date : Yesterday

*Opens Steam*

...

Already got Walking Dead but if anyone hasn't yet buy it a play an episode a night, more engaging than any TV series I have seen lately.

Witcher 2 11 dollars is pretty great.
