DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue will be released on the PC through Steam on November 30 for $14.99 and can now be pre-ordered for 10% off.

Additionally, the original DeathSpank and DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue will be released for the Mac on December 14, both featuring the same $14.99 price-tag.

Shacknews has contacted EA to find out if the games will support Steam Play when the Mac versions are released. DeathSpank is already available for the PC.

    For those who have played it, worth $15? The reviews from the Shack crew seemed mixed to me.

        LOL! DAM YOUR MODERN REFERENCES!! It's DIABLO meets "MONKEY ISLAND"! Which is directly from Mr. Gilbert's own mouth. :]

        I hope you've played at least the ladder of the two mentioned games and not the remastered vomit -- where as Guybrush was portrayed as a massive douche -- but the classic(Better Quality) version?

        OK, I'm done Nerd Raging...

          I chose Torchlight for it is lighter than Diablo and Psychonauts for the feeling of the game. Movement and such. Also it includes the same underlying style as Monkey Island when it comes to colors and backdrops I feel.

            I agree with what you wrote, it works well as another descriptor, I was just messing with you as I'm an old Monkey Island-tard that puts Ron's games above Tim's creations. :)

      Yep. I had a blast with DeathSpank and finished it over the course of a week.

      The atmosphere and writing are enjoyable but over all I didn't think the game was very fun.

        the writing is great if you're in high school or think poop jokes are funny the 2nd or 3rd or 4th of 5th time they're told

      i liked the first but generally hated the dialog and voice acting. pretty fun. now this second one is more of the same. i thought that would be ok but i am kinda bored of it. havent finished the 2nd yet and don't know if i will. so much shit to do with little direction.

      Tried the demo and found it somewhat...meh. It tries too hard to be funny and fails most of the time (imho) and the gameplay style just isn't as fun for me as it once used to be.

          More than enough to develop a solid opinion of the overall game.

            Some times yes. The gameplay would be easy to gauge on this game, but as far as judging the funny, that's pretty subjective as to state the obvious, we all have different likes.

      It's worth it if you're willing to put up with them potentially refusing to fix any bugs you run across. (360 users have been waiting 2 months for a fix to a bug preventing some people from finishing the sequel.)

      mixed bag it's fun but i don't think it's that great of a game.

      i played the first on PC and loved it, great humor and the gameplay is kind of easy especially for for not-hardcore rpg players and Its one of the few games that ive finished recently.
      Anyway i think im getting this one as well. Anyone knows if this one longer ?

      The game is great, but the voice of Deathspank sounds a little bit like the Tick if the Tick had dentures. I can practically hear the dentures slipping out of their grooves with every sound file.
