[Update: Contest over! Winners have been PM'd their codes.]

Those sexy devils at Devolver Digital have given us 10 codes for Shadow Warrior: Special Edition to hand out to lucky Dtoiders!

To say I came away impressed by Lo Wang's hefty offering wouldn't even begin to do the game justice. It features some of the most satisfying swordplay I've ever experienced outside of my own bedroom, gorgeous graphics, and more juvenile potty humor than you can shake your stick at. What's not to love?

Well now you have the chance to try it out for yourself! To enter, just leave a comment below telling me what you would do with Lo Wang's sword if you had it in real life. Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Sunday, January 26 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. The contest is open to anyone who can redeem a Steam code.

Good luck! And don't forget, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (as well as a bunch of other awesome perks). It's pretty great!
