      Does everyone posting above realize that this is a "do it yourself" thing, and not a thing where they will send it to people who reply??

            Well, that looks like a lot of work. Laziness has prevailed.

              It's two steps:

              1. Register account on playhawken.com and activate it
              2. When loggged in at playhawken.com, click redeem code and enter "HAWKENGAMEFLY"

              Shacknews/Gamefly could definitely use a lesson in how to present this sort of promotion to users. The way they did it would definitely scare people away because they listed like 15 steps when they seriously only should have put the two I did above.

      As soon as I read "Shacknews" and "GameFly" together I started to get nervous that the shoe was dropping.
