Valve's next big holiday themed sale has begun! The Autumn sale, starting today and lasting through November 26, promises daily deals, flash sales, and huge discounts for many games including dozens of indie titles. Remember, if there's something only partially discounted, try and wait to see if it will become a daily or flash deal before purchase. It could save you some bucks! Not that anyone's wallets are safe this time of year.
Today's daily deals, which will be available for 48 hours with new deals introduced every 24, include:
- XCOM: Enemy Unknown (33% off at $33.49)
- Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 (50% off at $4.99)
- The Walking Dead (50% off at $12.39)
- Darksiders II (66% off at $16.99)
- Age of Empires III Complete (75% off at $9.99)
- Terraria (66% off at $3.39)
The flash deals are on a much more varied schedule. Some of the currently available flash sales will expire in nine hours, others in 15, and then they'll be replaced with something new. There's three games each on each schedule, and here's what they currently are:
- Intrusion 2 (66% off at $3.39, 15 hours left)
- The Amazing Spider-Man (50% off at $24.99, 15 hours left)
- Operation Flashpoint, franchise (75% off at $13.74, 15 hours left)
- Payday: The Heist (75% off at $4.99, 9 hours left)
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords (75% off at $2.49, 9 hours left)
- Limbo (75% off at $2.49, 9 hours left)
Personally, I think $12.49 for The Walking Dead's full first season may be the best deal of the year. Serious contender for game of the year right there at the price of only a couple dollars a chapter. The season finale was just released yesterday! Knights of the Old Republic II also seems like a great deal, as it was only released on Steam earlier this year. I'd be remiss if I didn't recommend Darksider II as well, because that's a solid game and THQ needs as much support as we can muster.
Look forward to more deals as the week wanes, and be thankful for all the great games we get to purchase at ridiculously low prices this year.
