Steam Autumn Sale begins today

While console gamers must brave the frigid cold of a November morning to catch Black Friday deals, PC gamers can sit at home, downloading the best digital deals. Steam has kicked off its "Autumn Sale," which promises new deals every day and "hundreds of deals all weekend."

Highlights from today's daily deals include all three Sam & Max seasons for $12.49, Portal 2 for $10.19, Orcs Must Die for $3.74, and Mass Effect 2 for only $4.99.

Square Enix, Ubisoft, and Warner Bros. also discounts most of their catalog 33% off (excluding Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Assassin's Creed Revelations).
