Oh ok. I assume that I need the have the game to redeem the code. Correct?

EDIT: Never mind. Stupid question. Of course you need to have the game.

Haha as of right now, yeah you do. If they'd allow us to not have to open the game to enter the code, it would be better for us and allow those who don't own the game yet to stock up on codes. Not a stupid question at all; if they were smart they'd let us access the Shift software like in the game menu, but unfortunately they haven't yet done this, and it may stay this way. =/

I'm sure they do it to try and make it seem like you're missing out if you don't own the game already. I know that it makes me feel that way when I see one of those codes. The way that they release a new one every day or so hammers the point home too.

Pretty ingenious really. Much more affective than having some preorder bonus item.

I would think making a good game in the FIRST place would be slightly more ingenious but we're talking about Gearbox here so I can't expect much

I wouldn't mind being able to do that (enter codes w/o the game open) but I am thankful SHIFT doesn't require an extra software program running in the background.

Yeah, very thankful for them not making Shift into another abomination like Windows Live or UPlay (knock on wood), but I can't help but to still be a little peeved. =/

I really hate this new social media integration into games. Follow this guy on twitter to get golden keys. Like us on facebook to get a golden key. Sign up for our newsletter to get a golden key. How about no? I paid cash money for your game stop making me jump through hoops to get the most out of it.

I agree. I hate f***book and tw*tter for personal reasons, and resent that I even have accounts on both of them, but being a bit OCD with this kinda stuff I just feel like I'm missing out on the game.

It'd be really nice if they decided to integrate these types of things into the game, even if they made it really hard to get them (some challenge mission or something). But with how things are going these days, it seems everyone wants to make a point to integrate some sort of social media into their games...

It's annoying, but I'll deal with it if it'll get me something useful. I'd rather not do it, but what choice do I have? :roll:

Golden keys aren't necessary to play the game. Now, "follow us on Twitter! to pass our copy protection scheme" would be the shitty. Besides, thanks to the efforts of Sev and others reposting, I haven't had to do any of that to take advantage of them.

Just passing on the word from the SHIFT code thread. They may not be necessary, but they're surely nice to have since the idea is to get the shiniest gun you can. =P

I don't even bother any more, since I have a 50, and 4x 32-38. Once you farm (or dupe, I guess) level 50 legendaries, the keys are kinda meh.

First, the golden keys just give you free loot so you aren't really getting "more" out of the game by using them.

Of course if you really want to stick it to the man and not play into their social networking shenanigans:

If I am not mistaken they patched the game due to people performing those exact shenanigans.

Heres what I did a lot:

1. steal gun from cop
2. shoot enemies

I still dont like the game though

If you have a controller, I'd recommend using it. The combat feels more natural (IMO) using a gamepad. But then again, I do most of my PC gaming with a controller. KBM only feels natural for FPS and RTS to me.

Speaking of, I finished Sleepy Dogs yesterday and had a blast with it. Looked fantastic, and I really dug the setting, atmosphere, and combat. I also started and finished Spec Ops: The Line, which was also very good. That game has some fantastic art direction. I love the visual design of the settings. The plot wasn't bad either, and was fairly compelling, but the twist was disappointing. Just the right length as well; any longer and it would start outstaying its welcome.

Now I just have to figure out what to play next...
