    Cool thanks, I've read about these games and i'd like to try one. I don;t think there are any servers in my country tho, so it'd be mainly for single player or on servers that allow a 300+ ping. Which game would you recommend?

    bf2 sp would just be bots i think, if that's even an option. so bad company for sure, as it has a single player campaign. vietnam is a multiplayer-only expansion.

    This is for posting online deals only.

    is this not worth posting though? http://www.steamprices.com/eu/topripoffs

    If I were in EU, I'd still like to know what prices are in the US, if not just to see if it is worth buying or not, or how much steam is ripping me off

    Prices in one country doesn't necessarily constitute a rip off in another country. Frankly I don't care, it's easy enough to see what prices are for what country in Steam itself.

    Sorry I do see anyway to see EU prices from the US, and that site also offers direct comparison, and the biggest rip-off, and the best deals as well

    It is the same software from one country to another, so if this game is at 20$ US but 50 euros, even if you want it, you'd either wait, or ask a US friend or uncle or whatnot to gift it to you, or ask for it as a birthday present to a US relative. Same way, if you see that a game is 10 euros and 30$ US, and you were dabating whether it was a good deal or at a good enough price to buy it, it may push you to buy it as its a better deal than you thought

    ie: Dawn of War Platinum edition is 10euros vs 30$ USD ; while there are a bunch of EU games that would be 50~65% cheaper if bought in the US

    EDIT: Yea sry about doing it here, I just forgot that the rule applied to being a middleman too (wasn't thinking I know). Was just trying to help everyone out ;) I'm not debating that I should be allowed to do it, I thought my other post was deleted because I posted the steam rippoff site, but I guess it was the P.S :roll:

    It's all fine and dandy if you want to pay a friend or an uncle to get this game for you. Doing it on TPU is a solid NO.
    n-ster says thanks.

    What, Canada gets it 4 days before the US, I am sad :(

    EDIT: Weird, so I see the 13th, theJesus sees the 14th, n-ster sees the 9th.

    Both Gamestop and Bestbuy have it listed as the 14th, didn't check anywhere else.

    Weird, mine says 1 month 1 week, didn't look at that, thats the 16th. I kinda want the Balls of Steel Edition, especially since its $10 less on PC, but I want it on Steam, so I'm curious if it will have dual CD Keys, wonder when or if they will release that info.

    It shows Steam Cloud, Steam Stats, and Steam Leaderboard... ooo it might be dual keyed, I would be as giddie as a school girl.

    Verified from Gearbox, no matter how you buy DNF, Steam is included, going to pre-order the Balls of Steel Edition right now!

    Tons of stuff

    I just want it because it's been so long, and Dukes just BA. The BSE is $100 for consoles, but only $89 for PC, so why not a miniature Duke bust to sit at my comp desk will be awesome.

    seems like you're overpaying for junk that will just get thrown away in a few months.. playing cards are nice, I guess, but not $45 worth.
