remember if you want it in steam but dont want to pay the steam price you can buy it from a local shop for a few bucks less and instead of installing off the cd, you open steam and enter the cd key, and it will start downloading it.

As an enterprising Kiwi I'm happy to take your money from you for this, granted I don't work in Aus so I can't do this the normal way and take all your jobz too but this would save both of us time! Seriously though I'm happy to do this, Steam does indeed show it as $59.99.

Up to anyone who is interested

I'll have to do some investigation, but I assume it's me paying for it > purchase as a gift > then send gift to recipient. I'll do it on a payday (only time I have enough money lolz) > then recipient pays me back. I suppose you can do it the other way (recipient pays first) but it doesn't really matter.

EDIT: Just had a quick look, to pay the person back you can send money to a paypal account which they can then transfer to their bank account. Should be fairly straight forward.

The way I did it. Pay the person gifting it to you first. Then there is no need for the gifter (who is doing you a favour) to go out of pocket at any stage (Remember to pay in US$ as that is how Steam charges) If you pay via PayPal, there is a charge (I think like $2) but again, the giftee should pay that. The gifter needs the giftee on their Steam friends list. The gifter then purchases the game as a "gift for someone else" and "gifts" it to the giftee.

Damn ... I'm tired of writing "gift"

Done It'll be sitting in your Steam account ready to be unleashed on November 8 or earlier if they give us an early pre-download (which I'm expecting)

Be aware: The last couple of times I've accepted a gift, it comes up saying that there was an error. If that happens, don't worry. Check your games list and it'll still be there
