Space Sector’s Bargain List: Steam 2013 Summer Sale

By on July 15th, 2013 2:41 pm

And here we go, again. Steam has started its Summer sale. In fact, we arrived a bit late to the party, as the sale is going since last Thursday. But, better later than never. So, here it is now.

As usual, find sales for space-based, science fiction themed and great strategy games that are currently available on Steam. Pay special attention to “daily deals” and “flash deals” each day, in which Steam discounts games even further (75% or more).

Here’s our list. The changes since the December Steam sale are: Armada 2526 Gold Edition, Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes, StarDrive, Strike Suit Zero, Jagged Alliance 2: Gold, Company of Heroes: Gold and a re-review for Endless Space.

Highly Recommended:

Other Space and Sci-Fi strategy deals:

Non-strategy space and sci-fi deals:

Great strategy (non-scifi-space):

The discounts listed above were the ones listed at the time that this post was published.

All these deals are included in the Steam 2013 Summer Sale, which will end on July 22nd 2013. However, some promotions may end sooner or change the discount offered according to daily deals or others.

    Oh yeah, just got the Armada2526 Gold off of Steam. Been meaning to try this for the longest and had NO idea it was on Steam either.

    Whooo, this has been my most expensive steam sale to date. Just so many good games this year. Except when it comes to space games, I already have all of those :D You don’t mention Eador: masters of the broken world. A shame, because it’s one of my favourite 4x games this year! (ahem, since the last patch that is)

    Just picked up wargame: airland battle. Not exactly 4x, but 100% nerd approved nonetheless!

      Is the game a clickfest? I think they were made by the guys who made RUSE and they had a new publisher. I loved RUSE though and would have preferred a WW2 setting.

    I got the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, Walking Dead 400 days, and Armada 2526 Gold. I already had vanilla Armada 2526 and was waiting for Supernova to go on sale, but for $7 the “Gold” combo was the cheap way to go.

    I passed on Star Drive: price was right, but the instability problems remain and are a game killer.

    • Njordin says:

      Never ever experienced one of those “instability problems”.
      Many of my friends too.

      only on my laptop it was a crashfest.

      • Jeff P says:

        Not having Star Drive, I obviously can’t verify the continuing problems, but forums on Steam and stardrivegame.com are littered with such tales. A demo might allay my concerns, but there is no demo. $15 isn’t a lot of money, but time wasted on a buggy, unstable game is lost time I could have better spent playing a more mature product.

    Last I check, Sins Rebellion was $9.99. Though its not my cup of tea and its not pausable real-time like Distant Worlds, its one of those games that I make an exception though I don’t play it that much. Its great at that price.

    • Jeff P says:

      I thought it was pausable; the other games of the series are.

    • Adam Solo says:

      I’m pretty sure Sins: Rebellion is pausable.

      \Edit: I’ve just tested it. Hitting the “arrows” just increases/decreases time speed. To pause you need to hit the “Pause” key.

      • Towerbooks3192 says:

        Just discovered its pausable but the thing is its more like a pause because you need a break not pause while you give commands like Distant Worlds though. I am starting to re-learn the game and I am still trying to understand how to use TEC loyalist.

    As part of today’s daily Steam deal, Fallen Enchantress is marked down to $7.49 for roughly the next 2 days. Legendary Heroes is down to $13.59 for a couple days as well. Just a heads up for anyone who might be interested.

    • Sagatron says:

      I ended up biting on this sale late last night and picked up FE:LH and the map pack to go along with it. Can’t wait to get started playing it.

  6. Xyggy says:

    So what’s better – Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes or Warlock – Master of the Arcane? Basically looking for the “magical” equivalent of Civ 5. Thanks in advance!

    • Njordin says:

      i´d say FE with the new Addon. OR Warlock.

      not FE without addon.

    • Towerbooks3192 says:

      Warlock is an enjoyable game especially with that DLC (the name slips me) where your land gets invaded by some weird creatures that is hell-bent on killing everyone. Only turnoff is that it is not as serious as FE and it oozes budget game in every corner.

      • jackswift says:

        The Warlock DLC is called Armageddon. Get that and the Dark Elves DLC and you’ll be set.

        I’ve put in more time to Warlock than FE:LH, but both are great games. Warlock is better for games you can finish in less than a week and is easier to learn and play. The interface is more streamlined and looks prettier in general. Everything but combat is very simple and could be perceived by some as a “lack of depth”. However, is does not have the replayability that FE:LH has. You pay for that in games that take forever to finish/get to the point where you’ve won, but the journey there is more flavorful. Better diplomacy, custom units, epic quests and wildland zones. Plus, FE:LH is still being supported/added to and the Warlock dev cycle has been over a while now (at least according to their forums). FE:LH also has excellent mod support.

        Basically, if you want to play a more civ-like version of Elven Legacy or Fantasy Wars, get Warlock. If you want a more magic like version of Civ, get FE:LH. In my opinion you can’t really go wrong with either, it just depends on what kind of pace you want to play at.
