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

Posted by , | Views: 22,646

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.

Bought Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

It doesn't work on my, granted rather old, rig.
(Still Phenom II X4 + Radeon HD 7950).
On start it tells me that my CPU is not supported.

Now you might say: Hey your machine is really old, get a new
one. Things cannot be supported forever, it's too slow anyhow.
Here is the catch: I installed it on Windows 10.
And guess what. It looks gorgeous on 1080p, D3D12 and runs
absolutely smooth.
Same machine, dual boot.

A bit sad, that Feral felt the urge to introduce
higher CPU requirements with their port.
Really wanted to support Feral to make it a Linux sale.
I was expecting the game to not run as smooth as the Windows
version, but as it doesn't run at all - there is no
way for me to make it count as a Linux sale.

Anyone else got his Steam Controller purchase just cancelled?

Valve just sent me a refund right now without further explaining the case.

WTF?

If anyone else is as confused as me about where the thread about this has disappeared to - the same topic was on a different post.

They oversold them, plain and simple 😒 I was one of the lucky ones - mine just arrived today.

Yep, got my last one delivered today. The other one, yesterday. Wonder why they were delivered one day apart (ordered at the same time).

I just got a shipping notification for a Steam Controller today. Weird.

I'm in the same boat. This isn't the first time it's happened, and normally it's done for a pretty good reason from Feral. I daresay it's that they get extra performance for the majority of users out of a particular compile target, or perhaps some kind of middleware that uses instructions only available on newer CPU architectures. It does suck, but they'd have the numbers in terms of most effective target hardware - and ~11 year old CPUs won't be high. So while I understand your frustrations, I also can't blame Feral.

Have you tried it through any kind of wine layer? I tried using "Proton" from within the GNU/Linux Steam client, but had no luck. I'll give vanilla wine (and Steam through that directly) with DXVK a go at some point and see if that can be made to work (often works better for me than via "Proton" anyway, but that's Gentoo for you). I mean, not that you'd need to if you have Windows 10 for it, but I'm still curious.

Fortunately, I bought direct from Feral, so my purchase definitely counts where it should.

I would love to buy many steam controllers, sadly they are too expensive to import here in Brasil.

You're "lucky", they're out of stock forever now...

Hopefully they'll make a version 2.0.

Hypothetically you can use one of those crowdsourced delivery services. Maybe they will even evade import taxes for you (pretend like no import is taking place - that it is a personal possession that will return to country of origin). I haven't used any of them myself. So I also don't know anything about this specific one.
