well so much for trying to get AC2, regardles of whether they've removed it a little early or not I cant use Uplay as it is asking for a google authenticator code, I aint got one & have had anything ask for one before, guess I'll stick to the 360 for it, unless I see the remster going dirt cheap (like if it comes into the shop when its open again so its a quid)

hmm this ones supposed to be 100% off so £25 game for nowt which is good & makes me think of trying it out but it seems bugged at the time I type this & Steam isnt showing the discount when I look in the cart, the Total War site says its from 27th of April at 18:00 BST until Monday the 4th of May at 18:00 BST so theres plenty of time to check if its working for those that are interested though (for infomation I'm typing this at 19:11 on the 27'th)

Hawq, you need to remove it from the shopping cart first and go direct to this link

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2012 ... _SHOGUN_2/

Then click the green box which has the £25 crossed out and says £0.00 and it should be added to your Steam account

edit: It's still showing up here as 25 pounds but if you go to the Steam page it says get it free

To everyone that gets free games from Epic:

Two-Factor Authentication Required When Claiming Free Games April 28 - May 21

https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/n ... free-games

I went to go enable it, but it turns out I already did this quite some time ago. :olol:

To post links to Steam, be sure to do it like this:

Code: Select all

[url] put the link here [/url]
So it won't be parsed into a bigass annoying banner. :orazz:

The Neo Geo Mini is on special for US$30 on Amazon.

It's about AU$65 with the cheapest shipping from Amazon Australia.

Oh sweet, I bought that so fast. They had a $50 bundle that comes with a controller, and extra white controllers are also only $20. My son LOVES Metal Slug, so we’re going to play the hell out of this thing. I read a lot of complaints about the controllers, but I think they’ll be fine for casual play.
