    [Megathread] Steam Fall/Winter Sale 2013

    Alright figured I'd go ahead and get the Steam started so everyone can chat about it in one thread versus multiple ones.

    Wanted to mention I found this earlier: http://www.joystiq.com/2013/11/04/ru...-dates-leaked/ and http://i.imgur.com/BazPkxO.png

    Basically stating the following:

    Autumn Sale: November 27th - December 3rd (coinciding with Black Friday/Cyber Monday)
    Winter Sale: December 19th - January 3rd

    Not sure how true the dates are, but we'll see here this Wednesday. Either way are you prepared?

    ​Mod Notes: Don't post to beg for games*, memes, or anything else that can get you infracted.
    *You can try to trade with others if you want (try to use the
    Steam Trade Thread though) just don't go begging for someone to buy a game so you can trade them.

    My wallet is ready this time. However my game library is not, because it's still way too big >.<

    My wallet is not ready. Then again, I don't think there's anything I want to buy anyway.

    I want to pick up The Secret World for cheap. Other than that, I can't think of any either. Most of the games I want aren't out till next year.

    Oh wow...
    If those dates are correct then the autumn sale will match up perfectly with my trip to Dreamhack.

    I think it was recently on sale somewhere for $4.99, but I could be wrong. Either way I think it was on sale during the summer so it might be again.

    I completely agree. I think my wallet is somewhat ready as I have some money still set aside from Summer Sale, but I have way too many games. I'll probably be sticking to the titles I mainly want unless some good Indie ones come up. They were the ones that got me last time.

    If it's similar to the Summer then I agree with you. It all depends on what titles they throw up this time. I'm hoping it's different than Summer's so I can actually consider getting some. Plus I know they'll do Trading Cards and I'll be a sucker for them. ><

    I am already twitching with excitement. Despite being 140 games on my Steam of which I have played about 30 of them.

    Ah well, time to support more indie devs, and see if I can get BG2 EE cheap

    Yeah, I missed the last one. Going to search for it. Been on the fence about it for a long time. Just don't want to spend $30 on something I might not like.

    Pff.. just when I decided to save some money for a new videocard, this happens..
    Good thing I have almost everything already. There's some stuff on my wishlist, but that's mostly new games or those beta builds from greenlight games.

    Obligatory

    Was thinking about buying Van helsing just to kill time...I won't enjoy it much, nor will it last long, but hey its cheap and then I can atleast say I bought some game this sale...

    /WTB interesting games.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    Maybe go down the Indie route this year? I have done in the last two sales, and haven't been disappointed, Sure, some are a bit pap, but a lot of them are actually great games, and for a low price in comparision to some of the bigger titles

    Gonna have to definitely agree with this. I went into the Summer Sale (first time for a Steam Sale) going in with major companies and their titles and what I wanted. Someone mentioned in the Summer Sale thread some Indie titles when they were on sale and I grabbed them. The ones I got I haven't been disappointed yet. Granted some you don't get many hours in, but you can get a handful of Indie games for the price of even a major title on discount.

    hell, I just spent 275$ on the rear admiral pack over @ star citizen, so I hope this sale will be as bad as the summer sale for me!

    Oh.. I just ordered a new gaming PC yesterday. Was looking for something new to try out on it!

    My wallet is ready for a larger sale, but i dont know if my backlog is, oh well, cheap games is always good

    Couldn't agree more.
    Since I have gotten over my mindset of Indie games, I have found some absolute gems. Papers, Please! FTL, Evoland, Terraria to name but a few. Great games with a surprising amount of longevity also in some. All of those also cost less than half the price of a COD game. Got to say an amazing bargain, and also helps keep smaller devs afloat

    Only getting at least -75% deals this autumn sale. The big sale is not even 4 weeks away, and time is rare until holidays.

    I'm just hoping for games in my wishlist to be on sale.
