I'm thinking about getting the following:
Stellaris: Federations
Hegemony: Gold
Imperiums: Greek Wars

Problem is, I don't have time to play them.  But I can't help myself.  Games are my Precious......

^Just a week ago Hegemony Gold - Wars of the Ancient Greeks was on sale @ GoG and I got it for US3.74. Imperiums: Greek Wars is on sale @ Steam for 17.99 which is 2.00 less than I got it for last month.

None of this of course solves your time problem...

Dual Gear looks quite tasty. Added to my cart. Damn your eyes.

I am going to finally pull the trigger on War in the East-- The Beast from the East because everyone needs at least one giant, untamable Monster in their lives.  O0

Although I haven't played beyond the introductory tutorial missions, I really like Plane Mechanic Simulator, which has continued development with some steadiness adding new British WW2 planes; and of course it's 65% off right now.

Here was my demonstration video back near its first late-alpha release on Steam:

ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

Does Matrixgames have a summer sale?

There are a few titles I've been holding off on buying, waiting to see if a sale pops.

Regarding Plane Mechanic Sim: it's still in late alpha (though very playable), in the sense that new planes were/are(?) coming. But the original dev abandoned the game (apparently?) and the new publisher, after some updates, has also abandoned it. I have no idea what the current state of the game is, although some reviews state the new publisher broke it.

I'll have to load up again and play for a while to see what's up, as I don't want to make a recommendation on outdated experiences.  :-\

(Besides, (1) I've been meaning to complete the game someday anyway; and (2) my Dad was a copter mechanic for the Navy in Vietnam, and this would be a nostalgic way to remember him, since he was interested in what I was doing with the game once upon a time.)

Sounds interesting. I've never heard of it before.

Matrix usually has a big Christmas sale, usually between Thanksgiving and the 1st week of January.  Also, you get an anniversary coupon on the anniversary of your first purchase with them.  Aside from that, they don't do too many big sales.

They can have quite good sales for Slitherine products on Steam.  The only possible drawback for some is that you only get a key for Steam, whereas with a Matrix/Slitherine purchase you get a download for Matrix and a key for Steam.

Lots of the Matrix games are in the steam sale - some with fairly hefty reductions. (even the CM games they have released) - not sure if correspondingly if you wanted to buy from Matrix direct.

I was hoping to pick up a few games straight from Matrix.  For some reason I thought they had two sales a year, like maybe over 4th of July or something.  No biggie, there's plenty on Steam I want, too.
