Space Sector's Bargain List: Steam Mega Autumn Sales

Steam has started its Autumn sales and curiously enough I could use the sales post I did on the Summer and just add the new titles and replace the discounts, as almost all the deals done in the Summer are now repeated.

You will find sales for space-based, science fiction themed and great strategy games that are currently on Steam.

Let’s get started shall we? :)

Highly Recommended:

Other Space and Sci-Fi strategy deals:

Non-strategy space and sci-fi deals:

Other great strategy (non-scifi-space):

These deals are included in the Steam Autumn sale that will end on November 27th 2012. However, some promotions end sooner.

    Very nice! Makes hunting for space-games much easier. Too bad I bought most of them already. :p

  2. Bryan H. Bell says:

    For those new to Steam’s big sales, a word of caution: until the last day of the sale, DON’T BUY A GAME UNLESS IT’S A DAILY DEAL OR FLASH DEAL.

    Why?

    During the big sales, Steam discounts just about every game for the entire length of the sale. Each day, Steam takes a handful of those discounted games and discounts them even further, calling them the “Daily Deal” or “Flash Deal”. So a game that was 25% off during the first three days of the sale might become a daily deal on day 4 and get marked down to 75% off. On day 5, it goes back to 25% off and stays that way until the end of the sale. Flash deals work the same way except their duration is less than a day. The discount for flash deals is the same as daily deals (and vice versa), so go ahead and buy a game when it’s featured in either type of sale.

    Not every game becomes a daily or flash deal. So if you’ve got your eye on, say, Civilization V at 50% off, you should wait to see if it becomes a daily or flash and maybe get 75% off instead. If it never becomes a daily or flash deal, then on the last day of the sale, you can still at least pick it up for 50% off because you won’t see at better deal at that point.

      Ok, good tip. I wasn’t aware of that. I knew they have these daily deals, but I didn’t know about those flash deals. Thanks for the heads up.

      • Towerbooks3192 says:

        I learned that the hard way. Bought I game before it was a flash deal/deal of the day and I really regretted it. Flash deals could go as low as -75%

  3. SQW says:

    If you want to pick out Civ V: Gods and Kings, Greenman Gaming’s only charging $8.

    • Adam Solo says:

      If you already own Civ5 then $8 is a complete steal. I highly recommend everybody to play Gods & Kings, I can’t say it enough times. G&K revolutionized Civ5, that is now I guess what it should have been since the start. You will not want to go back to Civ4, even Civ4: BTS.

    • Bryan H. Bell says:

      Amazon is also selling Civ V: Gods And Kings for $8.

      The item on Amazon says the expansion for sale is the Mac version. Because of Steamplay however, the Steam key provided by Amazon will allow both PC and Mac users to install the expansion on Steam.

      I purchased the expansion for myself and my wife. Both of us use PCs, not Macs. We used the Steam keys provided by Amazon and are now able to play Civ V with the Gods And Kings expansion.

  4. JohnR says:

    Wow! SINS: Rebellion for $20? Even though I’m thoroughly enjoying Distant Worlds, that great price tag for Rebellion may be a bit too good to pass up. Thanks for the head’s up. :o)

    • Towerbooks3192 says:

      Do yourself a favor and either get it at that price or when it is a flash deal which could lower the price even more. If you don’t have the first Sins then by all means get rebellion because its basically Sins plus some additional factions and contents.

      I payed the full price and only spent 3-5 hours with it because of my busy schedule and I never regretted it. I am not an RTS kind of guy but I love Sins

  5. ray says:

    Adam, Thanks for putting together these specials on offer from Steam. It makes my job of only buying a decent game so much easier

    Thanks Mate

    Another suggestion for the “Other great strategy (non-scifi-space)” category is Making History II. Overlooked due to a bad launch, it’s come a long way through patches and updates and is an excellent turn-based, grand strategy war game (Think Axis & Allies on steroids). At $4.99 (75% off) it’s a good pick-up! Excellent list…gonna pick up two titles off these recommendations!

    • Towerbooks3192 says:

      Is it like HoI 3 or is it more like Commander: Europe at War (Sort of HOI lite) or something with only a couple of Scenarios like War in the East or it has the option to make your own scenario and play a random game like Advanced Tactics?

      Sorry for the long question. Got curious about it

  7. Towerbooks3192 says:

    Total War Series looks tempting but I don’t think moving around troops in real time is my cup of tea.

  8. Happy Corner says:

    Echoing all the thankful comments for posting these bargains. You’re the man, Mr. Solo.

  9. Adam Solo says:

    Looks like Green Man Gaming wants to keep up with Steam on same titles. Their sales period should start somewhere this Friday 23rd. Maybe it’s worth to wait a bit to see what they’ll come up to. And besides, many times they just sell their games as Steam keys, so if you’re into Steam it would be the same like buying directly from them.

  10. dayrinni says:

    I purchased SoTS2 (Well aware of how bad this game is but it was very cheap and wanted to see the disaster for myself), Civ 5 Gods and Kings, then the EU3 Collection for $40ish.

    I’m going to be busy over the next few months!

    • Adam Solo says:

      SotS2 should be better now. And by buying it now I think you’ll receive the End of Flesh expansion for free next week. My plan is to release my SotS2: Enhanced Edition review on release day (Nov 30th), depending if I can grab an early review copy.

    • Towerbooks3192 says:

      Please include Crusader Kings 2 in that purchase. Base on my experience, after playing Crusader Kings 2, EU 3 feel so archaic that I don’t want to play it anymore. Crusader Kings 2 is a better choice as of the moment because EU IV is on its way.

      Best part about Crusader Kings 2 is the fact that you will feel so emotionally attached to your monarch compared to EU 3 where you are focused more on a nation than your own dynasty. But since you already purchased EU3, its not a bad game, its really great even though I never restored Byzantium to its former glory :'(

  11. Unforgiven says:

    Couldn’t resist….just bought Endless Space, Sins: Trinity, Sins: Rebellion and Star Ruler…Now I need me to buy some extra time somehow to get to play those games….

  12. Towerbooks3192 says:

    Since Anno 2070 is mentioned, Anyone who loves Anno minus the DRM of doom and its set during the age of exploration, should get Dawn of Discovery/Anno 1404 Gold. The last time I check it was around $7 something on gamersgate.

    For other type of city-builders, Tropico 4 is a unique and fun game where you have the chance to be a dictator and rule with an iron fist or be a benevolent leader.

  13. Towerbooks3192 says:

    Sins Rebellion down to $13 on steam flash sale so now is the best time to get it

    (I posted on the wrong bargain article and I’m sorry about that.)
