Not to mention all the newer games which are retailing for roughly $110 to $120... take about $5 off if they're preowned, $10 if they're preowned and the cover is missing.

I'd happily pay $100 for a game if we had an R18+ rating... but we don't so fuck them.
damn.... remind me to bring a shit ton of used games when i visit the AU and NZ

The only reason i refuse to shell out $100 for it is i know DMC3 absolutely kicked my ass on PS2. After the 3rd or 4th level (the one in the big tower after the 3-headed dog), i got completely lost and gave up.

I don't know about prices in NZ but last i heard, they have a 18+ rating. It's a few of our bible thumping, geriatric politicians that are stopping an R classification for games being introduced in Oz.

As for our prices, it's well documented that game prices in Australia are insane. Unless you want to fork out $80-$100 for a game that may be utter shit (fuck you Gears Of War), you're best off to stick to the bargain bin titles.

Do you guys have an R rating though? I know Australia was the only country to get a censored version of GTA IV.

The normal difficulty is well balanced, and there's an even easier difficulty if that's too much. There are, however, like 4 difficulties higher than normal, so some part of that game will rape your face if you want it to.

Man I need about 30000 MS Points to get all the stuff on Live I've been missing.

I really want to get Nuts & Bolts. Loved B&K back in the day. I need to get the old one on Live.

Right now WoW is cutting into my console time pretty heavily. I may have to fast from WoW for a couple weeks after I hit 80 so I can catch up on everything.

Next game i'm buying is Ninja Gaiden 2 as i was tricked when i was asked to pick a game for Xmas. I'll probably go back to DMC3 and beat that before getting DMC4.

100 New Zealand dollars is worth about 60 US dollars - so there's not really much difference between the actual game retail price.

I've been revisiting Ace Combat 6 on the 360. It's soooo preeeety...



Looks like Bandai have released some new controller hardware for it too:



I've never gotten along with oddball controllers for games. Wasn't there some $200 controller the size of a pool table for an early mech game, or am I imagining it?
