Calling all PC/Mac gamers. Steam has launched a fantastic “Autumn Sale“, where different daily deals has some of the biggest titles discounted by as much as 80%. Today’s deals, which started about 30 minutes ago, include Monkey Island Special Edition bundle ($5.09), Total War Mega Pack ($12.49), Fallout Vegas ($4.99) and much more. Not all games on sale can be played on a Mac (assuming you’re living a Windows-free life), though you can browse the Mac section to see which are compatible. The Autumn Sale runs through the Thanksgiving weekend (ending Nov 27th), so be sure to head on over to Steam over the next few days and check up on the latest deals.

We’ve already seen some awesome App Store sales for the US Thanksgiving holiday seaon, but there are also a number of notable games that have gone free. 1112 episode 01, one of the first episodic adventure games exclusive to the iPhone, is now a freebie. The first person adventure featuring protagonist Louis Everett gets better and better, as evidenced by our reviews of 1112 episode 2 and ep 3. Also free are the popular tower defense games from Origin 8 - Sentinel: Mars Defense, Sentinel 2: Earth Defense and Space Station: Frontier, one of my favorite in the genre. The complete roundup can be found below, and don’t forget to check out other apps/games that have recently gone free.

For those of you looking forward to paying the monthly fee of $6.99 for access to dozens of Big Fish games on the iPad, it appears you’ll have to wait a little longer, perhaps even indefinitely. Yesterday we told you about Big Fish’s monthly subscription plan, but a follow up article on Bloomberg has revealed that Apple has subsequently pulled the subscription app from the App Store:
It wouldn’t be the first time Apple’s pulled an app after approving it, though it is rather baffling in this case as Big Fish had worked closely with Apple to ensure everything was in order. And since Apple has not commented, we don’t know for certain if the app simply needs to be tweaked and resubmitted, or worse, they’ve had a change of heart and iOS Game Subscriptions will no longer be part of the App Store equation.
