Smile Too many new games

Not that it's a bad thing but

Crysis 3
Dead Space 3
Colonial Marines-Aliens
Bioshock Infinite

All pretty close together I already preordered Dead Space 3 and Aliens will get the others soon. Lots of money on games in a short period.

It's great. I haven't been following any so I don't know which are more promising, but my order of excitement is

Colonial Marines
Crysis 3
Dead Space 3
Bioshock Infinite.

I have CM and Bioshock on preorder. Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3 are hard to pre order in Australia right now without spending $100 on each, so waiting on those for now.

Wow that is expensive. Why are the other games difficult to preorder?

Well Origin and EB are the only ways to pre order those games here (Crysis and DS3). EA wont let Green Man Gaming sell them in Australia. EB and Origin are $100 to pre order. Green Man Gaming IF they had it would be $50-60.

Best option for me is to just wait and get it via a store called JB HiFi. They import from the UK and sell new releases at $60-70, but stock can be low. Another option is to get someone to gift me a Steam or Origin key.

I'll be happy if it looks as good as AvP did. Sure it was a console port, but it had some nice DX11 tech to lift it up. Ran really well to.

Thanks dude. I'm after Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3. They are on Origin only and I don't think you can gift there. They might show up on Steam, but I'm in no real rush. Too many games to catch up on.

Gifting in origin wont be as steam one take a look at this


http://tos.ea.com/legalapp/termsofsale/US/en/PC/

4. Gifts:

Gifts purchased from EA may be purchased for, and redeemed by, only residents of the same country as the purchaser. Gifts are completed transactions upon purchase. When you purchase a gift from EA, that transaction is between you and EA. You receive the gift at the time of purchase, and you give your gift automatically to your designated recipient.

and it will look like this in the release i think
http://store.origin.com/store/eaemea...meID.850300#q1 (you might not be able to see it since origin uses IP)

They are on to me.

I click the link and it shows the AU price. $80. I'll read some reviews and check the Official thread. if it's good I'll shell out the $80 or whatever it is in retail. Still have to play the demo on PS3 too.
