*CLOSED* 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway: Dishonored (Day 11)

Dishonored logo, Steam

This month I’m giving away 12 games, one each day, for the “12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!” Day 11 is all about Dishonored, an amazing first person action shooter that I’ve been DYING to play! I’ve had this game since last year, if memory serves, and I haven’t played it yet. REAL LIFE GETS IN THE WAY sometimes. Or something. Bioshock Infinite and the Dragon Age series side-swiped me in a most serious (and awesome) way this year. Anyway! I’m starting to ramble so I’ll just tell you what the Steam store page says about Dishonored. System specs on the store page if you’re interested.

Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where strange steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is besieged by plague and ruled by a corrupt government armed with industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.

This is just the base game, no DLC. I know some get upset when I don’t giveaway the DLC when it’s available but I don’t even have the DLC for my game. So we’ll be DLC-less together. 😛


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 Monday, December 15th 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. 


EDITING TO ADD: Although I fell asleep on the couch and woke late, the giveaway is over and a winner has been drawn! Thanks for entering!

  8. Dishonored is a great game! Probably one of the best I’ve seen for allowing the player to complete tasks in multiple ways (and it adapts consequences based on how you play). Not often does a “shooter” come along that has achievements for *not* killing. (Stealth and non-lethal are my preferred playstyles when possible.)

  9. Merry Christmas! 😛
