The big Steam Autumn Sale is now live, time to nominate for the Steam Awards

Posted by , | Views: 23,389

Valve have today started the big Autumn Sale with tons of ridiculously good deals. On top of that, the Steam Awards have returned so it's time to make your nominations.

Far too many games on sale, here's a few fun picks:

Another incredible deal is the Steam Controller, which has gone down to £4.00 / $5.00 / €5.50 and they only have a limited amount left so it looks like this is the last run. We've emailed Valve to see if they care to confirm this is the end of the Steam Controller.

Honestly, the Steam Controller has been incredible to the point that I confessed my love of it in an article before. Highly versatile too, with the help of SC Controller. At that price, I might have to pickup a spare, I will be quite sad whenever mine die.

If you wish to show your appreciation to certain games, you can nominate them for the Steam Awards here. You get one of those fancy profile badges if you do, you all care about those right?

You have until December 3rd to pick up your cheap games.

While I already own a steam controller, I do hate it when sales like that (more like giveaways amirite) happen overnight and all the stock is gone after I wake up. At least I managed to snatch a Steam Link when they were selling it for next to nothing a while ago and I presume that the only reason why I got it was because there wasn't enough interest to outright clear the stock.

I can see some good deals, but to be honest the Winter/Christmas sale is in less than a month and there might be even better deals.

Sojiro84I bought the Steam Controller again a few months ago with Sekiro to give it another try. The first one went to the trash after I was unable to play a game with it.
That is very concerning behaviour.

einherjarAbsolutely NOT. I really don't care a single bit.
I play games to have fun. All these Badges and so on are absolutely uninteresting to me. I can't see, what is the advantage for me? Gaming is not more fun (for me), with these things.

This sounds like you do care, in a nagative way.
You can't just ignore them?

Sadly all the controllers were gone by the time I found out about the sale

BigJI’m tempted to buy the new Tomb Raider, any thoughts compared to ROTTR so far? I found that one enjoyable

In my opinion the newest, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, is the best. I think the controls and gameplay are more polished. I also enjoyed the story a bit better - but that may be personal preference

Honestly, I do not get your point.
I ignore them, but I do not ignore what Liam wrote. Two different things...

Tried to nominate 7 Days to Die for Better With Friends. But you can't. Weird.

Interesting. They've always meant to have games from current year, but this time, they enforce it except for the "labour of love" category (which is explicitly for old stuff still updated).

*edit* It seems it's not exactly 2019, probabl ymore since last nomination phase. Beholder 2 e.g. is included: https://store.steampowered.com/app/761620/Beholder_2/

A missunderstanding. I read "not more fun" as "with this stuff, it's no fun for me anymore". My fault, I guess.

ajgpSadly all the controllers were gone by the time I found out about the sale
We all hope that them clearing out the steam controller stock was to make room for Version 2 of the steam controller...
But with Valve you can never know especially since the patent we found about a version 2 is just that a patent...
Number of shit that got filed that never made it to production don't exactly help boast confidence.
