As an Aussie it can be frustrating when we miss out on content. That being said, if they release an edited version here and all that is removed is a rape scene I really have no issue with that.

In regards to people asking if we push for change regarding the video games rating system etc, yeah we do but to be honest there are much larger issues with our country at the moment than that stuff. Especially when it really isn't that hard to get your hand on anything that is banned. The government has no issue with you playing games that are banned, they only care if a retailer is selling them to the general public.

I expected to have to have mine removed when my top ones started to come down until the dentist did and x-ray and discovered I only had them on the top, none of the bottom. Since the top ones were nice and straight and there were no bottom ones for them to push on and cause problems I didn't need to have them removed. My sister on the other hand had all 4 of her's removed. Not fun.

Im in Australia and I have 10mps capped at 100gb a month. If I go over that they slow it to 256kbs. It doesn't really effect me that much but it will start to as huge downloads for games become more and more common.

The reason that Australians suffer this perhaps more than others is simply low population over a large area. We are physically almost the size of the US but we only have 22 million people. That means infrastructure costs us a ton of money.

Is anybody else disappointed by the garbage they've been putting in the Flash sales (every 12 hours) and the Community Choice (every 24 hours)? I feel like the only good games I've seen go on sale have been in the major Daily Deals.

Like, oh shit, R.U.S.E., RAGE, or Cities in Motion 2, how will I ever decide between those hot bangers? /sarcasm

I was hoping they'd put some more niche indie games in the flash sales, like Gods Will Be Watching, The Fall, that sort of thing. Putting in 3-4-year-old console games like R.U.S.E., RAGE, and Bulletstorm isn't really what I'm looking for.

Agree with this completely. I actually laughed when I saw RAGE up there. I mean at least I remember people liking Bulletstorm? RAGE not so much...

You can currently get Thief (as in the new one) for 94% off from Game UK.

I have paid using Paypal from Australia and they have sent me an email confirming that they have received my payment. Now just waiting for them to send me the code. I will update this once I have that and can confirm that it does authenticate correctly on Steam.

Edit: Still have not received the code and it's looking like I wont be. Mixed bag on Reddit, some have got it no worries, others like me with no code. Apparently this has happened before with Game UK. Bugger.

I don't think that it was as good as it could have been but I still really enjoyed it. I loved the investigate the crime scene stuff but didn't like the main character or the overarching story as much.

I have always wanted a police game along the lines of SWAT 4 where you can't just go in guns blazing. You have to announce your presence, ask them to surrender, if they do then cuff and search them. The closest I have ever got is the old Police Quest games which I LOVED. Would be thrilled if the decided to make a modern reboot of those games.

From what I can see there is no point in me crafting gems as I have no hope of actually winning an auction with the number of gems I would get.

Does anyone know if this is in place of their regular Christmas sale?

I use my PC as a gaming console so it is set up to run through my plasma. I have a decent laptop for all my word-processing etc needs. The laptop is also capable of running most games at mid-level settings so any games I want to play that really don't work with a controller I will usually play on that.

No idea if this has been posted here or not but if anyone wants to put some cash down and get a piece of an F1 car then today is your lucky day!

Apologies if this is old news.
