Steam Thanksgiving Sale Kicks Off with 50% Off Walking Dead

The rumored Steam Thanksgiving Sale has begun, with a number of awesome 2012 titles receiving deep discounts. The clear winner, available for the next 48 hours, is The Walking Dead: The Game, which has had its price slashed from the normal $25 to $12.50.

We’re working on our review of Episode 5 of The Walking Dead right now (spoiler alert: It’s great), but I think I can safely recommend that you GO BUY THIS GAME IMMEDIATELY, especially at that price.

Also appearing on the sale are a number of quality titles, like the well-loved XCOM: Enemy Unknown (down to $34) and Darksiders 2 (down to $17). Heavily moddable Terraria is down to about $3.30, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II is down to $2.50 — totally worth it, especially when you apply the Restored Content Mod. In fact, most of the Star Wars catalog is on sale: see for yourself.

There’s also a huge selection of indie games on sale, but to find all the discounts, you’ll have to go hunting through the indie game catalog. Here are some standouts: Mark of the Ninja at $11.25, World of Goo at $2.50, Deponia for $10, To The Moon for $5 and a bunch more (all of the above are worth your money, promise). You’ll have to dig through to find them all.

Find any other great deals that might not be obvious in the Steam sale? Feel free to share the love in the comments.

Thank you for this. I was about ready to head to bed and if not for this article I would have missed out on getting both KOTOR’s at 75% off.

I agree that the Walking Dead is a worthy of purchase, especially now that all 5 episodes are availables… No waiting for the next episode anymore, a thing that will make me think hard before purchasing another game using that format again in the future… Until all episodes are done, that is…

Also, buy it if you can handle the difficult emotional decisions within the game… This is a game you play ultimately for the story and not for the difficulty of it’s puzzles (quite easy) or it’s aventure feeling…

That said, it’s a must, a classic… A game that bring new life to the usually overused zombie theme…
