I'm new to PC gaming. Just heard of this recently.
Check out my gameplay videos. Fighting Games, Nintendo, Dark Souls, and more.

It's a number code that you enter into Steam to claim the PC game, download it, and play it.

Alphanumeric actually. Numbers and letters.

Once you have a code TC, you go into the steam client (which you need to download and install) and then add the game by going to "games" at the very top and then selecting "Activate a Product on Steam"

You forgot hyphens. You're fired.

-To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

IIRC you can input the codes without the hyphens :P
