Steam Gets Shank and ‘Spanked


EA’s downloadable duo of DeathSpank and Shank, already available for console gamers on PSN and XBLA, is now set to bring the goods to PC gamers. Both titles go on sale October 26th via Steam at $15 apiece — or $13.49 if you pre-purchase for a 10% discount. Additionally, in the spirit of Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton, Jr’s shake and bake catchphrase, a “Shank and ‘Spank” combo pack is available at a 15% pre-purchase discount, bringing the total price down to just over $25 and saving you an extra dollar and two quarters over reserving the two games individually.

That. Just. Happened!
