According to Secret of the Magic Crystals devs, the Steam Autumn sale starts on November 21st and goes to the 27th. See here...

Also gives details on the winter sale...

Anybody have hopes like I do that Borderlands 2 or Farming Simulator goes on sale? What are you hoping to buy? I'm also curious if there will be a gimmick to this sale (coal, community voting, lottery, etc)

Hoping for a decent discount on Civ 5: Gods and Kings.

Also surprised this isn't a 'fall' sale.

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.)

Probably won't buy too much, I already have a lot of games on my plate. Also, Gog's got a sale on now - 5 games for $10.

Hope Dishonored gets a good discount. That and Assassin's Creed 3 are the only two major game releases left this year that I'm looking forward to, and I doubt ACIII will get any sale.

Will probably pick some older games that I won't have the time to play for another era.

Hmm, weird they'd do a Haloween sale as well as an Autumn sale. Nothing I'm particularly interested in getting, but I might end up splashing out on something if it really catches my eye. Too many games I already haven't played to buy any more this time by I think.

It's really more of a black Friday sale. They do it every year.

Autumn sale before Christmas sale? Might just resist till Christmas, it'll be better anyway.

Unless a few full price games are discounted super hard, I'll just wait for the Xmas sale.

Oh god, I've already got too many games to play. I must resist buying more games.

@Andorski: I completely forgot about AC3, would love to pick that game up too.... at 75% off.

I'm hoping for an XCOM sale and a really good Dark Souls sale.

@GS_Dan: It was like $7 on amazon the other day. And I believe most of the games on Amazon give you a code for steam anyway.

Hoping for Skyrim to be cheap, now that I have an awesome PC to play it on (even if I already have it on 360).

Shit, you're right, I can't see them discounting a game that comes out in 3 hours......

As I said on the Sleeping Dogs thread that I just posted, between Green Man Gaming, Amazon's weekly deals, and Steamgifts, I hardly even buy games directly through Steam anymore.

The Halloween sale was the first Steam sale I hadn't bought at least one game in years, hopefully this one is a bit more interesting given the competition that Amazon has been bringing this year.

You guys complain about getting paid monthly, bi weekly lol

I get paid randomly, sometimes nothing for months, sometimes my entire year in a few weeks, fun times.

Hmm, not really sure what my shopping list is going to be this year as I still have loads of games I haven't played from the last few sales. Would like to get FTL and Orcs Must Die! 2, maybe the new King's Bounty game...maaaybe War of the Roses if the price is right. Oh, and Mark of the Ninja would be great as well.

Gotta catch up on 2012 games while it's still 2012, I guess.

Are you saying that it's not wise to spend all of my money on games when I have to pay for a trip to Switzerland later this month?

Damnit, why did I spend the remainder of my available monthly income last night on a shitty Amazon order? I hope I get my next check at the end of the month before this sale is over.

Hoping for some nice deals on the Skyrim DLC. If not I'll wait until the Christmas sale.

I'll probably end up getting Hotline Miami if it's in any kind of sale. I have too much to play on other platforms right now to run wild on this sale.

Does anyone know what time this starts? GoG are doing a 'Pick 5' sale for $10 http://www.gog.com/pick_5_pay_10 which has some pretty good games in it but I'm waiting to see if they're in the Steam sale first.

@RazielCuts: In my experience they usually flip the switch on stuff like this around 12pm-3pm Eastern time.

If you just want base Civ 5 I'm sure I'm far from the only one sitting on an extra copy since the X-Com pre-order.
