Halo 3 is polished. Doesn't mean it's good, but damn the graphics are polished like a rich businessman's shoes in the 1910's.

Guys, I have the following PS3 games that I still need to play. Which one should I buy first and why?

Uncharted
LittleBig Planet
Final Fantasy 7 (PSN port for 10$)
Any PSN game (I have none of them)
Killzone 2
Infamous (I HAVE played a demo, and it was fairly good.)
Batman Arkham Asylum
Bioshock
Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (a friend brought it over and it was pretty sweet)
Street Fighter 4
Haze

Or should I wait for some of the many awesome Winter games coming up?

Mario&Luigi 3: (coming in 10 days for North America, almost definitely will be DS Game of The Year says Nintendo Power with a review score of 9.5)

Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles: (superior sequel to Umbrella Chronicles coming November 10th

COD MW2: (most likely Game of the Year coming November 11th)

New Super Mario Bros. Wii: (doesn't look all too impressive, but hey, it's Mario Bros. 6.)

Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time: (should be an awesome step up from the previous title)

What else am I missing?

I usually frequent the VG and collaboration Forums. If you find me anywhere else, I'm lost and can't find my way back.

I can't wait for this gem to be released. I have to wait for October 22nd though, unfortunately.

My deepest apologies on behalf of the Western Side. Do you guys think of yourselves as part of the Western World? You are in the Pacific, closer to the Americas than Japan if I'm not mistaken. Sail to the Northeast and you'll end up in California I think.

Psst, I remember Zero Punctuation talking about it. A place called GameTraders Ravina. It's where he got games as early as us despite being in Australia. I don't know about it, but you should look it up.
I'm whispering because I don't want to reccomend a store that likely imports games. It might be against the rules over the internet.

Well, I'm pretty sure we're closer to Japan lol. We are 'western', despite being in the 'East' I suppose. Blame the English.


Psst, GAMETRADERS ROBINA

Yeah, importing is an option I suppose. Depends if the postage costs are going to outweigh the cost of buying from the US. Generally I think that might be the case actually, since we get a huge markup on games here. How much do you generally pay for DS games?

Sorry, worded it wrong. There are less miles between Australia and the Americas, than the miles between Japan and the Americas.

Brand new DS games go for 30$, sometimes 35$, but I've only seen that on Final Fantasy games.

After a month or two for actually good games, it goes down to 30$, and from there is debatable. I shop for used games at Gamestop, so the cost could be anything.

I'm sorry, my knowledge of other countries is limited due to age. What currency do Australians use?

Fair enough, probably not too difficult to make that mistake I guess.

US$35?! Holy shit.

I'm sorry, my knowledge of other countries is limited due to age. What currency do Australians use?

We use AU$. According to my un-trusty Windows sidebar, we get 85 US cents per Aussie dollar, which comes to around $41 for a US$35 game. In comparison, a new DS game here costs AU$70.
If the shipping etc. is less than AU$30, I'll probably import.

I just wanted to post here to keep this thread alive. Do you think ubisoft will ever change the Far Cry 2 matchmaking system so that not every single person has to be ready to start the game?

Well, right now I'm doing my part to try to keep this thread alive. More people should post here. I just wanna say, that Shadow Complex is a very good XBOX Live arcade game. I would seriously recommend it. Trust me, it is worth the 1200 MP. Even though it's only single player, it is possibly one of the best arcade games there are. That's all I have to say.

pffffft, arcade games are a waste of money compared to real games.

If only I could rent them like I can retail games, I'd be happy.

Definitely looks interesting, that's for sure. And Gearbox are generally quite reliable, so it should turn out well. I guess we'll have to wait for the release though.

The co-op aspect looks like it should be fun though.

I think Borderlands looks great, all the weapons look awesome. Looks like a promising game.

Who can't wait for Heavy Rain?

I actually think it looks pretty cool, but I agree, it is gonna be more like an interactive movie than a real game. I still wanna play it though.

Has anyone ever bought a CD key from http://www.g2play.net before? One of the guys at college recommended it to me, so I went and bought a key for Left 4 Dead. Trouble is, the one I got is apparently invalid >:(

I've emailed Steam support, hopefully they'll work it out. If not, I'm gonna be pissed.

Serves me right for not just buying it directly through Steam I suppose. Nevertheless, it still pisses me off, since the site seemed legitimate enough - proper paypal gateway and everything.

Yeah, did that, and it's all worked out fine now. Morons gave me an incorrect key. Anyway, it's downloading as I type this, so hopefully before too long I'll be blowing the heads off Infected necks.

I'm having to make do without my Xbox 360 now that I've started university. No harm will come from this, but I'm going to miss out on the early days of Modern Warfare 2 which is a shame as I've really been looking forward to playing this game.

I have my laptop with me, which isn't really built for playing games, but it can handle several older games. In my free time when I have little else to do I am going to try and play right through Morrowind, something which I have never done before.

Once I've played that game dry, I'll be looking for something else that my laptop can handle. MMOs have been considered and I already own Guild Wars and World of Warcraft, although I no longer play either of the titles. I understand that these games take a lot of time and dedication if you want to get the full experience, but is my first week of uni is anything to go by I'm going to have a lot of time to spare. Not sure how much free time I'll actually have once my course starts though.

If anyone could recommend me some older PC classics, or some more modern titles that don't require too much in the way of system specs I would be most grateful. I have a list of all the games that I currently own linked in my sig ("My Game Collection").

Civilization IV is a must, Rome Total War too. Also look at indie games like World of Goo.

Call of Duty 1 and 2 if you liked the others. 1 is a bit different from the rest of them (no regenerating health), but is still good, and 2 is the best in the series.

Star Wars Battlefront is awesome too. Don't need to be a Star Wars fan, but naturally it's more enjoyable if you are. Arguably better than 2, in that it has better maps and better classes, but it lacks a campaign mode, and there are no space levels (although you can use ships in ground based levels, something missing from 2).

I might look into getting COD 2. Out of curiosity, does the multiplayer still have an active community?

As far as Star Wars games go, I think I'll stick with KOTOR. I've played Battlefield 1 and 2 on the PS2 and although good games, I just didn't find them as enjoyable as I would have liked.

Thanks for the response, it's appreciated, and once I get through Morrowind COD 2 might be the next addition to my games collection, assuming the multiplayer is still on the go.
