Yeah - that is kind of a bummer. But look at the bright side - you guys live in Australia and New Zealand, respectively!

Or the "I'm in New Zealand but cant buy the rockstar games cos they are ban in Australia and steam lumps us in with them" thing.

I mean it's Steams fault but I'd prefer to blame the Australia Goverment on this one for being lame. This is what a country gets when it plays cricket twenty hours a day.

It's only the future of gaming if they sort out the dumb, "You're in Australia, so even though you can read the release list, you can't actually see the Atari games." thing.

Don't even get me started on CoD4.

Great to see more publishers and developers embracing Steam. Love it or hate it, this is the model of the future of PC gaming. Me, I'll pretty much let Gabe Newell come to my house, kick my dog, make out with my wife, and walk on my new rug with muddy sneakers if he helps keep PC gaming alive!

I might get NWN 2 and MotB.

8. The Atari "80 classic" bundle *sucks* Mar 12, 2008, 21:17 Nuclear Watchdog
 
Like hitting the "reset" button on your computer after a hard lockup? Then the Atari "80s Classic" bundle is for you! 20 Clams right down the toilet ba-by!!1

Play the arcade version of Missile Command (the arcade and 2600 versions are included) and when you get a bonus city it's "bye-bye baby". Great job Atari, keep up the bad work.

I think missile command is part of the 80-in-1 pack.

Exactly. That it is.

steam, like it or not, is a good medium to get nice games. im happy with it.

Agreed. The small minority that hates it is disproportionately noisy.

I sometimes am an impulse buyer, and let me tell ya, when they do those really good sales, it is a no brainer!
