    $50 is loose change now people.

    You should be all be buying the THQ pack without thinking about it. I mean I'm with Telstra and I'm getting it.

    Well, not really. I won't have $100 to spend in a few days now. Either way they got my money so it would have been nice to choose what I would have preferred.

    That's cos you don't want to dig a little deeper into your savings or go into debt. Not so for others who will see another great deal in the coming days and buy it no matter what, whereas if they saw the whole list beforehand at once, they prob would have skipped on a game from day 1 in hindsight.

    Thanks for the heads up. My housemate forgot his steam account password (and his email password, lol). Just bought him a replacement copy of Grid. For US$7.50, can't go wrong :leet:.

    Saints Row 2 definitely the top of the list in there, best fun I've had for ages and shits all over GTA 4.

    YES! I KNOW RIGHT! Finally someone who feels the same way. We gotta play together some day.

    The whole THQ pack can be justified with the existence of SR 2, but that's just me.


    It says one day long deals everyday but the timer is at 36 hours, anyone know why that is?

    So we'll either only get 2-3 more bundles or we'll get 5 if they just can't count because it says 'Check back for a new set of games when the timer reaches 00:00:00'.

    And from my experience with steam, does it check for the full price in your paypal before it applies the discount??
    Coz I'll have trouble finding someone with $127.84 USD at their disposal in their paypal account.

    Might be just for the first day, or because of different timezones they added a few more hours.

    Heard they will have a complete Call of Duty pack with every single game in the series for $99.98 USD include MW2.


    .....i kid i kid :D

    Hrmm does anyone have Grid? At 7.50 it looks like a pretty good pick up.

    THQ pack is very tempting........I haven't played half those games but I have heard they are good....hrrm to buy or not to buy.
