    I hate it when they do this :(

    I'd get the THQ pack, but I already have Dawn of War 1 and all of the Company of Heroes games...

    I'd get the LucasArts pack, but I already have all of the Star Wars games...

    Definitely getting Far Cry 2 - $10? WOW!

    For Red Faction Guerrilla alone, which I paid $60 for, I'd say it's worth it.

    LOLOLOLOL <3 DM

    I bought Dragon Age at JB HiFi for $99AUD cause I didn't want to waste quota then saw this. Quickly took it back (returned it within 25mins of having bought it) still sealed so they took it thank god and bought Dragon Age, THQ Pack and Osmos for $87USD which works out to $97AUD.... I just got TWENTY games for the price of the ONE game I was originally going to buy and still got the game I was originally purchasing.

    Thanks heaps DM.

    I do have to download Dragon Age now but that's cool, not as big a deal considering I get another 19 games for my troubles.

    Played GRID on the Xbox 360 and really enjoyed it. I don't like racing games on the PC, so i either use borrow a Xbox 360 controller for windows or a racing wheel and kit from a friend...racing games and keyboards don't work for me.

    I have a free copy of GRID that came with my graphics card, but i haven't installed it because of that reason..don't have a xbox 360 controller for windows handy atm.

    ehehe, showing some restraint. I'm keen on the THQ pack because of the value, but i've never been and RPG sort of person, so most of the games don't appeal..easier not to buy it.

    Plenty of RTS and FPS on there also though. Not liking RPGs is no excuse!

    I'm guessing you need some sort of adaptor for this? My 360 is sitting next to my computer at home.....

    If you have a wired controller no. If wireless then yeah, you need to purchase a wireless adaptor for it.

    The windows supporting wireless controllers include a wireless receiver (retail pack) that you plug in via USB, and then the receiver connects to the wireless controller. As for the wired ones, as said above its just a simple plug and play.

    All this time you've been tempting others yet you haven't got it yet yourself? Lewl!

    There is no denying logic. No escaping reason. Resistance is futile.




    I predict an EA/Activision/Ubisoft pack in the coming days...
