Shack PSA: Steam Thanksgiving Sale Kicks off With Discounted Alpha Protocol, Shank, Gift Packs

With Thanksgiving mere hours away, it's time for the game discounts to ramp up into overdrive as the big daddy of PC digital distribution, Steam, has unveiled its own Thanksgiving sale, 'Give & Get.' The Steam sale takes the form of one-day sales on individual titles and bulk packs, rotating each day until Monday, November 29.

The first day's discounts include Alpha Protocol for $7.50, stab-happy Shank at $10.04, the full third season of Telltale's Sam & Max games for $10.50, ten copies of Half-Life 2 for $20, eight copies of Deus Ex for $12 and 50% off a R.U.S.E. six-pack.

Furthermore, during each day of the sale, thirty people will win be selected at random to win the top five games on their Steam wishlist. Valve gets more data and helps people to spend money on you; you get a chance to score some free video games.

Today's Steam deals follow below. Don't worry, we'll have plenty more deals for you over the next few days. Goodness knows little else will happen in the industry, and the other Shackstaff members have the rest of the week off work.

      I bought the original ages ago, and just bought it again. Easily the crowning achievement of gaming. An example of the sheer heights that this amazing medium can reach.

      I agree wholeheartedly with this statement. Deus Ex is my favorite game of all time.

        Been my favorite game of all time too. Played it for the first time in high school when it came out, and I replay it almost every 1-2 years.

      Dunno guys, I kinda liked System Shock 2 more. The RPG bits are more functional/easier to use and the voice acting is a lot better.

        They were both great but I have head-to-head I give the edge to Deus Ex. One of the first games to truly let you solve problems your way. I remember thinking of different solutions just to see if I could come up with one the designer/programmers didn't anticipate.

      I still have the CD but bought this to add to Steam.
      Some music to listen to while it installs people.
