    Doesn't seem to be available in Canada, but I've seen a lot of people mentioning that Steam Controllers are 90% off in the US ($5). There's a "limited quantity" warning on there, so it probably won't last long.

    Edit: according to The Verge, Steam confirmed that no more of the controllers will be manufactured.

      Has there been any sign as to whether this is to move inventory for a second version or not?

        No indications, Valve are infamously tight-lipped. But Valve seem to have gone fully into VR. A lot of the tech in their VR controllers is modified or upgraded from the Steam Controller. EDIT:...

        EDIT: Also, the Steam Link was done away with in a similar way. The technology is now being used to stream Steam games through TVs and phones now.

          At the bottom of the nominations page, in the FAQ, one of the questions is: "Where can I find wallpapers for the Steam Awards art?"

      The entire Dishonored series is on sale for $24:

      I have only played the first game, which I enjoyed, but I do not recall ever reading a bad thing about the rest of the series, so I feel safe recommending them.

      There is also RimWorld, which is not on sale, but it is so good that I am going to recommend it anyways.

      If you have never played Skyrim or any of the Fallout games, now would be a great time to get into them.

      Obsidian's latest isometric roleplaying games, Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny, and Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, as well as the DLC for all of those games, can be had for a little under $60. (Eat that, Paradox.) I highly recommend these games if you like in-depth, takes-fifty-hours-to-complete roleplaying games.

      If you like roguelikes, and I mean honest-to-god roguelikes, not platformers-with-permadeath roguelites, then I can't recommend Cogmind enough. It's easily the most beautiful, important roguelike of this decade, as opposed to something silly, like Spelunky.

      What kind of games do you like?

        Rimworld was the game that was kind of like dwarf fortress but with a usable UI, right?

          As an avid Dwarf Fortress player, I resent that lol

          But yeah, RimWorld is a construction and management simulation game like Dwarf Fortress, but being in the same genre is pretty much where their similarities end.

          RimWorld is much more scaled down. Its details matter much more. In Dwarf Fortress, losing a few dwarves is hardly ever a disaster. In RimWorld, losing the wrong colonist can all but guarantee your doom. In Dwarf Fortress, it isn't uncommon for my late-game fortresses to have 200+ dwarves, 200+ animals, 100+ visitors, and I've set my invasions to include up to 500 enemies and monsters.

          In RimWorld, most players will never have a colony of more than 50 colonists.

          So, my point is, the scale is quite different between the two. RimWorld also doesn't have pseudo three-dimensional z-levels.

          That being said, RimWorld is much more approachable for most people. It's UI is nice and mouse friendly, the game sounds and looks great, and it has its own special amount of depth to it. Dwarf Fortress' keyboard oriented design does allow the player to do certain things faster, like designating buildings and handing out or customizing orders, but that's not a big deal.

          RimWorld is definitely easier to get into, but they're both great games and I recommend everyone give them a try.

          (Dwarf Fortress is also free.)

      Humble store also has some pretty good discounts right now. Just bought a few Falcom games that were missing from my library.
