*CLOSED* 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway: Deus Ex (Day 7)

Deus Ex, Director's Cut logo, Steam

This month I’m giving away 12 games, one each day, for the “12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!” Day 7 means it’s time for a Deus Ex giveaway! This is just the director’s cut with no DLC. I think I first heard of Deus Ex from Branick over at Lotro Academy (Lotro Players) and as interesting as it sounded, I hadn’t gotten around to buying the game. When I saw it on the Steam Summer sale I decided to get it and a copy to gift to one of you. My plan was to play every game I have on Steam at least once this year which is how I came to play Bioshock Infinite. That game changed me! I was super serious about MMO gaming for many years right up until I just couldn’t deal with the grind anymore. I started jumping from (single-player) game to game, playing a little here and there. I only played Bioshock Infinite, initially, to be able to write up a giveaway post on it. I wanted to know a little of what I was talking about, after all.

I couldn’t put it down!

Now games where choices matter, like Infinite, Dragon Age and Deus Ex are what I want to play most! I want to RPG my heart out on these games. I still haven’t gotten around to trying Deus Ex (I went from Infinite to Dragon Age and, for now, the rest is history!) but it’s absolutely on my list of ‘must play’ right after The Witcher 2.

Here’s an excerpt from the Steam Store page about Deus Ex: (system specs there as well)

You play Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT specialist who’s been handpicked to oversee the defensive needs of one of America’s most experimental biotechnology firms. Your job is to safeguard company secrets, but when a black ops team breaks in and kills the very scientists you were hired to protect, everything you thought you knew about your job changes.

Choices and consequences: shoot your way through the enemies, sneak up behind them without being traced, hack systems to retrieve crucial information, or use your social skills to extract information from key characters – there are always choices, multiple approaches, multiple paths and multiple tools at your disposal. Choose your playing style and face the consequences of your actions: you decide how the story unfolds in his enhanced storyline featuring the full integration of “The Missing Link” and “Tongs Mission”. Find more ways to defeat the new and improved Boss Fights, use the Newgame+ feature to replay the story with your previously acquired augmentations.


So how does this giveaway work?

  • You have to have Steam to play the game as I’ll be gifting the winner the game through Steam. There will be instructions in the email explaining how to download Steam in case you don’t have it already. Steam is a free download.
  • The winner will have to use a valid email address when commenting (not IN the comment itself, just in the input box you have to fill out TO comment so it’s kept private) so I can send the download link for the game. I won’t sell or give your email address to anyone, promise. If you’re signed in to WordPress when you comment make sure the email associated with your WordPress profile is a valid one that you can check.
  • You have to leave a comment on this post in order for me to enter you into a random draw to win the game.
  • Oh, and you need an internet connection to download the game.

– You don’t have to be my Steam friend in order for me to gift the game to you because Steam allows for people to send gifts to email addresses, not just through the client. If you want to add me as a Steam friend, that’s cool. Not required though.

– I will assign each person who comments a number and then enter the numbers in a Random Number Generator to determine the winner. Multiple comments from the same person won’t increase your chances of winning. In other words, if you comment 187 times you’re still only getting one entry number assigned to you.


This giveaway is a one-day-only giveaway. It starts at 12:00AM on Tuesday, December 9th and runs for 24 hours. (All times are CST, Central Standard Time) I will use the above linked RNG to draw for a winner as soon as the giveaway closes and then email the winner. If I haven’t heard back from the winner in two days time I’ll redraw for a new winner. Since this is a “12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!” I’ll update on the weekends to let you guys know who each of the winners are from the week. Sound good?

One more note. I celebrate Christmas and my personal preference is to say things like ‘Merry Christmas”. I understand that may or may not be your preference. That’s cool. You don’t have to celebrate the holidays as ‘Christmas’ to enter these giveaways.
