These, and all the non-Steam events, Warhammer stuff, publisher weekends, country days and all.

Our wallet were never, and will never be, ready.

I'd like it more if Steam would come up with more bugfixes. The Steam client is buggy more and more. While things like Proton are of course very nice, I feel like the 30% they take are sadly no longer appropriate.

The newest bug: Steam doesn't remember the order of your downloads. You want this game be update before the others? Nope. Every time you start Steam, or even just play a game that stops downloads, the order is reset.

You can set a game to update before others by Game Settings (gear icon) -> Updates -> Update before other games

I meant the area where you can drag and drop updates in an order, like a playlist.

Why is the Autumn Sale so near to the Winter Sale (only 1 month apart)?
In my opinion the Autumn Sale would be better situated in September - maybe it could swap places with the SHMUP Fest?
Just my two cents.

This gets my hopes up for a Touhou official game discount finally... but there probably won't be any discount because ZUN is not into them. Oh well.

Visual Novel fest is going to be major wallet drain for me though.

I'm not seeing any Platformer Fest. But, hey, maybe by the time the Strategy Fest comes along, Super Bomberman R 2 will be out and I can say "Hey you guys, Super Bomberman R 2 is in the Steam Strategy Fest!" and I can drag some more people along for the ride.

Autumn Sale is Black Friday -> Winter is right around Christmas when everyone had gift cards to spend. I think they call them Autumn and Winter as a neutral way to appeal to their non-North American customer base. =)
