    You need to log into https://www.findmyorder.com
    And there use your Order Number and the password you set when finishing the order.
    You will get a summary of your order (and the key for the DLC once they have processed it).

    Go here, find Oniken, click keys, and use that key with Steam and you'll activate the game.

    My thoughts on the game so far are basically that it seems rad as hell and it does not fuck around whatsoever. I thought it was really cheap at first, but then I realized I was playing it like modern 2d platformers, charging in without really paying attention to enemy patterns. Once I figured out what I was doing wrong the game clicked and things started going much better.

    Such a good game, I'm currently on the fourth level. Fucking ninjas in the woods piss me off so much

    ...

    I think that looks pretty cool. Dat 3D platformers nostalgia.

    I bought this off of Amazon during a pricing mistake and played the first three or four levels. I have to say that its a pretty solid game in the old 3D collect-a-thon mold. I enjoyed what I played of it and I really should get back to it.

    So ~10 hours after I began the process, I finally got my code for the Moxxi DLC.

    Started playing Contrast. Still a little rough around the edges (there's been a few glitch things where models stop moving and are sliding around while stationary, as well as poor edge detection for some of the shadow stuff), but what's striking me most is the story right now.

    Like...the story is not in the slightest what I expected, rather heavy, and...not fun? I dunno. Not what I was looking for when I booted the game, anyway. Not BAD, just....really not what I was expecting going in.

    Plot spoilers through the first half of the game or so
    You are the imaginary friend of a girl in a broken home who is basically sneaking out and you're helping her to prevent her deadbeat father (who you find out ISN'T her real father) from getting killed by the mob because he owes them tons of money and is incompetent when trying out hair-brained schemes to get money so that her family wouldn't get foreclosed on

    It's...uh....yeah.

    A few pages ago we were talking about Analogue and Hate Plus. Apparently Christine Love announced a new game (a year off, argh!) last month, but I only found out a couple days ago.

    Hopefully it'll come to Steam, where it may take the crown of "Game with the Longest Title on Steam."

    Even though LocoCycle reviewed poorly, I think Twisted Pixel still offered to buy me a free game because I helped them try to fix that Ms Splosion Man thing. I mean, TP games have progressively gotten worse since the Splosion Mans, but I can dig a free game.

    So, brief follow-up in the Totalbiscuit vs. FUN Creators drama, TB tweeted the following e-mail his associate received from FUN Creators today:
    w1iLIhi.png
    So, now they're just issuing threats. I gotta say, I wonder who this Jasmine person is doing their 'PR' because she's terrible. From all of this I just get the feeling that they have literally no idea just what they're dealing with.

    Anyway, TB says all remaining correspondence will be done through their lawyer. All he wants is the strike removed from his channel and an apology, he just doesn't want to deal with them anymore. I certainly don't blame him. We probably won't hear anything more on this matter unless that does end up happening.

    Edit: Oh, and predictably, on FUN Creators' twitter they made another vague claim that the image was photoshopped/faked, some comment about the font being different than yesterday. They also seem to claim that Jasmine is made up because she doesn't have a last name.

    TB directed them to continue communication with the lawyer which they've apparently already been in contact with for a couple of days. Their reply was something about no more e-mails and to contact them directly and having "2 trusted people to be CCed", TB just told them if they didn't want to use e-mail anymore to give the lawyer an alternate method of contact.

    So there we go.

    Yeah exactly, so bizarre. Also, did you know that the Steam forum for Guise of the Wolf is locked so that only people who own the game can post in it? I didn't even know that was possible actually. I imagine it's not a very active place...

    I also didn't realize that Polaris was part of Maker, so TB has that backing which is decently significant.

    I didn't really make the connection until I saw a comment, but if anyone saw the Kitchen Nightmares episode about Amy's Baking Company, these people are sort of acting just like the couple that Ramsey walked away from. Just crazy.

    There needs to be a foreign word for this sort of thing. Kind of how like Germans have 'schadenfreude' for enjoying the misery of others, we need a word that says 'I like watching incompetent people being way out of their depth without realising it'.

    It ended up taking me about six hours from the time I was (finally) able to get their site to stay up long enough to place the order, until the time I got an email with a code.

    But while our experiences were similar, I guess our attitudes couldn't be farther separated.

    I don't mind that it took a long time, because I have empathy for a website that runs a neat little V-Day themed promo and then gets absolutely swamped with traffic once news of that promo hits various forums/reddit/4chan/etc. Their servers were absolutely annihilated with people who were trying to get a free steam key, so much so that they were pumping out 500: Internal Server Errors, which unlike errors like 404 is nonspecific, which means that it is a fancy web term for "something went wrong and the server is so busy right now it can't even tell you what went wrong".

    This happens every time a website runs a promo for anything free on Steam, going back even as far as the BGamer/Dark Messiah fiasco of '09 and beyond. You oughtta know by now that it would have taken a while.

    So basically you really need to change your outlook. Instead of complaining about how long it took for gameagent to give you some free DLC (while untold numbers of other people were also scrambling to try and get free DLC), maybe you should instead look at it a different emotion. I'd suggest gratitude.

    I don't care how long it takes to get freebie promotions, but as soon as I see "Make an account..." I'm out. I realize that getting people to sign up is the whole point, but I got enough accounts as it is.

    According to their blog the deal appears to be over now unless you've already successfully went through it, then it's just a waiting game. The new deal is to purchase borderlands 2 to get it until the 17th. I was slow :(

    To be fair though I wasn't their mac intended audience so I didn't deserve it anyway.
