First person to enter this code in steam gets all of Half Life 1 pack.

5096-13419-8182

 

Was just going through all my old collection of game cds, I'm OLD!!! Even got the original System Shock 1 cd, oh, and Ultima IV box with 3.5 floppys and cloth map.

And to top that, an old as blazes UFO flight sim on the 5 1/4 inch disks....

 

But yeah anyway, I can't use that code since I've got Half Life 1-2 through an ATi promotion years ago, it's from my original Half Life cd.

Someone's gonna enjoy it...

Awesome! Just picked up GTA IV: EfLC for $15, Ghostbusters for a fiver, and Grid for $5 I think it was. Was tempted by RE5 for $15, but I've got far too many games to get through, would probably never get around to playing it.

Well... that attempt at getting a gifted copy didn't work so well (but many thanks to Nukejockey for his efforts). Is there anyone here who has got this to work recently, either with an Aus account activated to work on the US store or who happens to live OS? I ask, of course, out of an interest in whether this does actually still work rather than for any would-be-better-in-trademart reasons.

I gifted 2 copies of Transformers, which is only available on the US store yesterday. So it was working 24 hours ago.

 

Bundy managed to get it to work too.

 

Dunno what the deal is.

Just finished playing Dirt 2, and in honor of Colin McRae's passing, the developers decided to add in a 2 Race rally tournament (The Colin McRae Challenge) with Ford Escort Mk II's, and upon completition, a short but very fitting tribute started to play:

 

 

It actually makes you want to compete, whereas in Dirt 1, the game expects you to compete. This simple fact changes the feel of the game for the better. The cars are varied in their strengths and weaknesses and there is no silver bullet car that can do everything, as it encourages you to try different cars for different events.

 

Well worth the $10USD price tag.

jamesski, someone jumped on it before you did, lucky buggers.

 

I got Dirt 1, and Ghost Master for a buck (very entertaining).

Red Lynx Trials 2 is a bitch of a time waster, just HAVE to try get a better time/score

 

Seriously wanted Indigo Prophecy too but alas, used up my funds with the above games.

Do NZ have an R18+ or are they more generous in their classifications?

As far as I remember, we have r16 and r18 rating for games.

Yep just looked through some of my collection I still have cases/boxes for, Halflife 2 ep1-2 = R16

GTA III, Sanny, IV = R18

Silent Hill Homecoming = R18

 

All with appropiate stickers and warnings.

wow that really is fucked then. I didn't know that. Im moving to NZ.

 

on a side note I just purchased Square Enix Eidos Collector's Pack so I have lots and lots to download on freezone with iinet. Already downloaded 54gb in the free zone and once I get this it will probably jump to 100gb :p

Changing the settings will only set those servers as a priority. If they are too congested, Steam will still download from elsewhere.

Frey's Steam filter works very well at blocking non-YourISP connections, ensuring that Steam only downloads from your ISP. You may need to deactivate it from time to time (as I've just had to do to get anything down since Bigpond's Steam severs are rubbish), but that's easy enough to do.

I just saw someone post the L4D2 was $10.20 US on facebook I enjoyed 1 quite a lot but do aussies still get the nerfed version? I don't wanna play a bloodless zombie game...

 

Many players around nyar? on the ganked version wouldn't mind playing someonline if it's ok?

 

*EDIT* I have found a yanky from reddit who will gift me the gorefest US version am I able to play this on Aussie servers okay against the kiddy version.

It now crosses my mind that I could have used my old HL key to trade for something. Really wanted Indigo Prophecy...

Silly me.

It's a great idea but it has never worked for me. the majority of things just won't start downloading while the filter is active.

Thats because the majority of things aren't on Australian based servers.

Yeah you can play with anyone that isn't using the workaround to uncensor the game. However if an Australian hosts, you don't get any blood.

Civ games on sale now -- if you don't own them, do so now! $10 will get you Civ IV + Warlords, Beyond the Sword and Colonization.

 

And I've never found a game that Bigpond doesn't have, although it occasionally takes an annoyingly long time to connect to a server.

Theres a couple I've had queued up for Days that wont download off anywhere (and I've got Frey's set to download off all Australian based servers)
