DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue Lands Today in NA

Greetings, even more earlier than expected person!

Still shocked that we’re getting another DeathSpank adventure so soon after the first one? Well, prepare to be even more astounded, with Hothead Games announcing that, due to some “phenomenon we’re not entirely sure we understand and that may involve the autumnal equinox”, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue will now launch today (in North America.)

We actually know why it’s hitting early. The PSN is scheduled for maintenance this week over on State-side, and hence why they’re getting their content a day earlier than normal. Considering they get their content a day before us over here in the Old World anyway, well, it’s complicated, but it looks like the moons of Saturn have aligned and our US readers can get their hands on some new purple thong-action today.

Thongs of Virtue will release worldwide on Xbox LIVE Arcade on Wednesday.

    Not just the PSN stateside, this from eublog..

    Ooooh… just noticed that anyone who buys Deathspank 2 in the first week gets the first couple of bits of DLC for free. Nice.

    Loved the first game, simple yet enjoyable.

    I bought Deathspank and I played it a lot until my mate came around and played it with me, he’s a massive gamer too and I thought he’d love but he just grunted “this is shit, it’s a total Diablo rip off with some stupid bits in it…” I was like “!” and TBH I think all his criticisms put me off it. After that I put on 3DDGH and guess what he said ….. “this is shit, it’s trying to be Zelda and failing, even the music been copied badly !” and I was like “!” followed by “this isn’t an Amiga your playing mate, the games are all legit, pull the crabs out your arse you miserable git !”
    The moral to this is …..well I don’t know but I feel better for having that off my chest, Deathspank ftw !

      This is the most depressing thing I’ve read today. Someone liking a great game and then being influenced by another person’s opinion.

      Man up, mate. If you like a game, like the bloody game. Your “mate” seems to dislike games in general. What does he like? Do you like everything he does? And, if you don’t, do you think he gives a shit what you think about the games he likes?

        I like …… I like…….. I…. like…. arrrrrggghhh !
        No I just got into 3DDGH more :) He can take a long walk for all I care, I was just shocked he wasn’t as into it as me, it is awesome and I just forgot about it.
        If I give you his address will you drive around on this http://static.creativecrash.com/galleryimages/78/screen.jpg and give him a pasting ?

    I want this but I really should complete the first before I consider buying this.

      Yeah, that’s the same boat i’m in! Loved the first, but it’s been placed by the wayside for now, probably because of my late Assassin’s Creed boom.

    Loved the first one and the second player drop in system was perfect for my girlfriend who is not such a bit gamer.
    I am very glad this one is coming so soon after the first
