Full Steam ahead — or not

Anyone looking to get in on the last few hours of Steam’s incredible Thanksgiving weekend sale will have to use the website rather than the game client. However, if you’re looking to actually play the game you just purchased — too bad. As of 7 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Nov. 30, Valve’s PC gaming platform is MIA.

There is no word from Valve yet whether or not there is a fix on the way, so just assume you won’t be able to get a quick round of “Super Meat Boy” in before heading off to class. Stay tuned for additional information.

UPDATE: Steam appears to be working again, but you still won’t be able to get a quick round of “Super Meat Boy” in before class since it’s not available for download until 1 p.m. — fiddlesticks.

UPDATE: Just kidding. It appears to be offline once again. We’ll let you know when it’s fully functional.

UPDATE: Steam is up and running!
