Steam Autumn Sale and Steam Awards Return

Valve announces the return of The Steam Awards, offering everyone the chance to nominate games and earn Steam badges for their efforts. These coincide with the start of the Steam Autumn Sale which covers many of the eligible games and also offers up to 90% off on Steam Hardware. The sale runs for the next week and the awards will be handed out next month. Here's word:

The Steam Autumn Sale 2017 starts now, with great deals across the Steam catalog throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday*. Come back every day to see new featured titles, or check out the games that are recommended for you.

In addition to discounts on thousands of great games, join the nomination process for the Steam Awards. Nominate your favorite games across a variety of categories, and earn profile XP and badges for participating! Your nominations will help determine the finalists for each category. In December, you can vote on the winners for each category during the Steam Winter Sale. Learn more about the Steam Awards here.

*Offers end Tuesday November 28th at 10am Pacific.

Nope, Valve is way too happy just sitting around doing the bare minimum maintaining Steam, and making billions.

No HL3, no L4D3, etc.

Me too, the silence from the devs has been deafening.
It can only mean one of 2 things, none of which is Half-Life 3.

I don't understand those awards. Are they memes turned awards? Damned millennials, get off my Steam!

I think it's more like everyone knows awards are meaningless so let's have fun with the categories.

Or a "we dont' want to do this, so let them do it" deal.

On a another note, anybody else finds fascinating that Bethesda released Fallout 4 stand alone version just for VR at a full retail price? Where every other title that either has, or added VR support in post release, it's a bonus, aka, free add-on?

That's not really true. The Haunting of Ethan Carter has VR as paid DLC. SUPERHOT VR and Serious Sam 3 are separate purchases from the original games, just like Fallout 4. Pinball FX2 VR is a separate purchase and you have to rebuy tables you already own. Blazerush abandoned its Steam customers and went to the Oculus Store.

In general I don't really mind. Everyone knows there's not a ton of money to be made in VR yet, and most of these companies are going to be flat out losing money on it for now.

In Bethesda's case in particular I'm kind of irked. After taking Carmack to court for allegedly stealing all this valuable VR tech, their first VR product, Skyrim VR, is a PSVR exclusive, giving PC VR enthusiasts nothing over the Thanksgiving holiday. Just swell.

Not bad at all, picked up:

Hard West Complete - $5.78

Insurgency - $1.64

Crookz - The Big Heist - $2.87

Dirt Rally - $13.29

Douche Ex - Seasons Pass $4.50 may as well, since both bonus missions are $5/each, plus I get all fluff DLCs with it, so meh.

On a another note, anybody else finds fascinating that Bethesda released Fallout 4 stand alone version just for VR at a full retail price? Where every other title that either has, or added VR support in post release, it's a bonus, aka, free add-on?

Anyways, love how Ass Creed, Wolfenstein II and Shadow of War is already on sale

Portal Combo package for a whopping $2.99 .

Is there anyone in existence that doesn't already own both Portal games?

On a side note, Shadow Tactics is awesome and everyone should buy it.

I created a small TamperMonkey script for anyone with a very large Steam Wishlist (I currently have 157). You are guaranteed to only see stuff on sale. Thumbsup
