Buying Aliens Colonial Marines (Avoid the Aussie Ripoff)
 
G'day guys

Just seen that the preorder for Aliens is up on Steam and once again Australians are being ripped off.
Current US Steam price for the preorder is US$49.99, Australian Steam price is US$79.95.

So avoiding Steam I was able to find a Preorder for US$38.49 at GetGames.
Aliens Colonial Marines - Download Games - Get Games

I have bought with them before (Civ 5 GOTY), when the game comes out you will be provided with a keycode that can be entered into Steam to activate the game on your Steam account.

Before you buy anything on Steam, check Green Man Gaming

Green Man Gaming

Use the following code:

GMG30-ALIEN-SDEAL

$35 USD and they give you a steam key. Code above is valid till 25th Jan.

They've also promised that if any publishers approach them and force them to hike up the price for AU/NZ region you can use this code to get an additional 30% discount:

GMGAU-3J9MF-MUINW

^^ Code is valid for the next 10 years. Support them, they're finally making a stand against AU/NZ price gouging.

Preload is up on steam now, game releases in a couple of days.

Hmm my understanding that the campaign is completely co-op?
Wouldnt mind go thru with it with a few toggers :p

EDIT Saved $16 on a season pass thru green man gaming D:

It's also $50 on gamersgate who I purchase off regularly
Also beware as they seem to have a lot of extra content planned at equally exorbitant prices. The season pass is a collection of DLC that will not be available on release.
