Coinciding with the Black Friday sales, the 2019 Steam Autumn Sale is now live with great deals across thousands of games in the Steam catalog. I just love Steam sales, waking up to notifications that 40+ games from my wishlist are on sale (I have over 300 games wishlisted, bring on the Winter sales next month!). The Steam Autumn Sale runs through to 2am AWST / 5am AEDT December 4. Prices below are in AUD and you can see these prices by logging into your account and checking preferences.
Be sure to check in each day to see the new featured titles on the front page, plus you get personalised recommendations based on the games you play and have in your library. The algorithms they use are incredible and are too good as I’m always tempted to buy something, whether it’s on sale or not, just because it’s so in tune to the games I like playing. Ahh Gaben, you’ve got me again!
Along with the discounted games, nominations are now open over the duration of the sale for the 2019 Steam Awards where the Steam Award Selection Committee, aka the players, can nominate our favourite games in each of the following categories:
- Game of the Year
- VR Game of the Year
- Labor of Love
- Better with Friends
- Most Innovative Gameplay
- Outstanding Story-Rich Game
- Best Game You Suck At
- Outstanding Visual Style
You can see all of my personal award nominations here. Voting closes at the same time as the Steam Autumn Sale at 2am AWST / 5am AEDT December 4. During the Christmas/New Year Winter sale, we will get to vote on category finalists for announcement early next year. As always you can earn shiny new Steam Badges for completing tasks related to these Steam Awards. Are there any games taking your fancy? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter via the social links below.
