NZers get reamed out hard when it comes to game prices. Having the dedicated game store market dominated by one company = suckass for all us who want to, like, buy games.

yeah games over priced alright. I reckon BF1943 @ $25 NZ was fantastic value for money, played it heaps of times ( so far 3 days 21 hours and 55 minutes or 424 games) unlike Big Little Planet, paid $100 - played it a couple of times then gave it away, as I could not see what all the fuss was about.

1943 had the advantage of not being sold through price-gouging EB Games stores... It's spectacular value for money. Esepcially as I was able to DL it from my account onto a friends ps3 without additional purchase, and now he's also able to play it (even when I'm playing :0 )

Anyone got Bad Company 2? I'm enjoying 1943 so much at the moment that I think I'd like to get something a little more meaty to play with...

Looks pretty good to me. I played the first one, and the multiplayer was much the same as BF1943, only more options weapons etc.

I heard BC2's multiplayer is a slower paced, more tactical thing than prior battlefields. Not necessarily a bad thing - my favourite evar multiplayer game was SWAT3. Well, maybe not evar but it was pretty good.

In other news, last night I paratrooped down onto the top of an enemy USMC tank and managed to chuck a grenade down the hatch on top... I thought, OH MAN THIS WILL BE THE BEST KILL EVER... But turns out they don't destroy the tank outright when you do that. I was super dissapointed :(

I picked it up today... I've been loving 1943 lately, and thought I'd give it a whirl.

The MP is well cool. Classic Battlefield. Only just scratched the surface really. I managed a six kill streak earlier (gunner in a tank, mowing down infantry. Awesome fun). I'm looking forward to getting some of the unlocked weapons and gadgets, but even as a n00b your stuff can still kill pretty damn well :)

YFY, I'm cleaning up!! Just had an 18-kill game, including capping five flags and only six deaths. Second to top on my team as well. BC2 seems to reward low-and-slow(...er) gameplay. If you're careful and chill out in cover you're hard to spot and hard to hit... And then you get to pwn the guys who are running around in the open :thumbsup: Good game.

When you melee kill people you collect their dogtags... And you gets yourself a cool permanent list of people who you've slaughtered... Really neat feature :D :thumbsup:

I can tell from the name that it's awful...

Sounds like the object of the game is to be a panicing schoolgirl trying to finish her school project so that teacher doesn't yell at her :huh:
