To add to that: I think strategy games, more than any other, need to be DRM-free, because good ones have very long legs. There aren't many current games I could actually see myself playing a decade from now, but great grand strategy games hold up that long and longer IMO. That makes the fact that the two biggest names in grand strategy (Paradox and Firaxis) have both gone Steam-only particularly distressing.

What's the thoughts on Star Ruler? Worth it? Or a no?

Best Part is designing Ships.
But the "Rule your Empire " Part is a bit empty as Planets are essentially just Factories for Ships.
Combat/Movement is Newtonian , lots of Inertia.Space Battles are like a kind of jousting,with Battle Fleets flying by/through each other, firing , then drifting apart for a another Run.
Shipsize is unlimited , you can build a Stardestroyer bigger than then Stars he destroys.
Diplomacy is Basic.Iirc there is no Espionage or Trade to speak of.
If you can get it cheap and like to tinker with Ship Designs its worth a Shot ,else try one of the other 4x Games first.
Like Moo2 , Distant Worlds + Addons ,Sword of the Stars Series,Space Empires 4 + Mods.

Firaxis is a different matter, they probably went Steam to easily sell all their overpriced and mostly useless DLC.

Startopia is 1.49 Euro on GMG (Steam key). 1.20 with the "GMG20-ZB5D1-93X49" voucher.

BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea: Ep 1 is $3.75 on Mac Game store, it has registered as DLC in steam for me on a PC, so its seems all good, saving of about €11 from the steam sale :D

Enemy Within is currently $15 in a flash sale on Steam, which I think is its lowest point so far. Almost certain to reappear in a daily, but prices are the exact same so no harm in jumping on it now.

EDIT: Looks like the DLC has gone back to only 50% off now.

If someone's missing it from their collection Audiosurf is 0.99 USD on the Humble store. Might only be for the next ~2 hours, though. Not sure.

Teleglitch: Die More Edition is currently 2.25 GBP on GamersGate. That should work out to 2.69 Euro and so is cheaper than on Steam even if it's chosen in the community vote (3.25 Euro).
