It's that time of the year again. It's getting cold outside, dark and so you should keep warm with some new games. The Steam Autumn Sale 2021 is up.

You know the drill, you probably have a Wishlist stocked full of interesting games but for those who don't we have a couple of items you should take a look at including:

  • Stellaris for your grand-strategy, and a big patch + DLC out now - 75% off
  • Unrailed! for some truly hilarious co-op fun - 70% off
  • Wasteland 3 gives you plenty of choices and a new historical discount - 67% off
  • Monster Sanctuary has plenty of creatures to find and add to your collection - 66% off
  • Metro Exodus for your post apocalyptic FPS needs - 60% off
  • Space Haven continues being a brilliant sci-fi building sim - 35% off
  • Roguebook is colourful, inviting and has a lot of cards for deck-building - 30% off
  • Valheim not a big discount but still one of the best this year - 20% off

We also have some other suggestions that work well with Steam Play Proton include:

If you find a really delicious deal you think others need to pick up and play, do let your fellow readers know in the comments. We're always eager to know what you plan to pick up!

The Steam Awards are officially opening for Nominations today too, so you can go ahead and pick what you really enjoyed and hopefully they will be in the running with enough votes. The winners get announced on January 3, 2022.

I had spiritual awakening and I don't want to play any game that has any killings in it.

And a new Proton version is officially here: 6.3-8
WH40000 Space Marine works out of the box!
Sadly, the price is expensive for an old game. (at least here in Argentina with our 65% tax)

I remain disproportionally irritated that discounts are given as '-n% off', which means a price increase

Good news: here it's a hyphen rather than a minus sign - it says "<game> - n% off" rather than "-n% off" - and on Steam it just says -n%. So you don't need to be annoyed.

This helps. A lot. Thank you

I put Loop Hero for best overall, though there were a few games this year that were great and I wish I could nominate Loop Hero for more than one category (best visuals at least). It is just so well-crafted, polished, and fresh.

In this sale, I have just picked some DLC for Warhammer 40K Gladius: Relics of War; I have been really enjoying it. (Actually it went on sale yesterday due to release of a new DLC and I got it then, but it's the same). I would also recommend Northgard (my favorite RTS) and Monster Sanctuary (a very good, if difficult, creature collector+metroidvania).

Pyre is 4,20EUR

Although I'm a bit hesitant to recommend a Supergiant game after how they treated Linux with Hades, fact is, Pyre is my second favorite game of all time, so it is hard not to recommend it.

And who knows, with Steam Deck coming, if enough people buy Pyre, maybe Supergiant will actually do a Linux version for their next game (although I doubt it)

I would recommend Prey, too. I'm halfway through the game, it runs flawlessly with Proton. Great story and gameplay!

Quoting: wvstolzing[...] but I'd recommend getting it all the same. Same with Dishonored 1 & 2 (80% off).

can you run Dishonored 2 just fine in Proton? because I have weird problems with mouse look and been waiting for a Proton version that would fix it.. (I've tried so many wines and protons..)

the problem is, mouse look sometimes get stuck.. laggy.. cannot turn, or it jumps. I read somewhere it has maybe something to do with fps lock or something, don't know. it's a shame, since I really liked the first game, and been anxious to play this one but haven't gotten very far as it's very frustrating..

I think I had the same problem, so I uninstalled the game. Will definitly have a look at it again when the issue is fixed.

On ProtonDB, someone recently suggested running the game with Proton-6.9-GE-2 and some extra tweaks, have you tried that?
