I ordered my civ4 from the States in order to get the goodies of pre-ordering and I'll get roughly at the same time than shops here.
Did you look at the technology tree? Looks amazingly good.

Jee next week is going to be tough to handle all these games!

By the way, I played Serious Sam 2 (and finished it), skip it, seriously!
I tried Quake4, big big big disappointment. Skip it as well.

The SS2 demo looked ok, about as much fun as the previous ones - which is to say, only worth playing on a LAN. At $20 less than other games I'm tempted, but then ITMS was just released and I think my spare cash will be going there instead ;)

Q4 seems to be better than Doom 3 for now, I'm keen to give it a try if only because I gave up on Doom 3 after about 5 minutes. I dunno if I'll bother picking up a copy though.

SS2 actually cannot be played in deathmatch (has to be coop) and it was a lot more fun in DM: Shooting with the cannon was good fun.

As well, in SS1 you had some rooms where you just had wave of lights, or you were jumping all the times. Very creative.

There was just 1 part in SS2 where it was fun: you had to go through checkpoints with limited ammo. pretty funny

Sorry Faust, I guess I shouldnt jump to conclusions.

Checked out one of the games shops in Wan Chai (a little closer for you Sharez_Jek) and Civ4 will arrive 'offically' in the first week of November. Checked out the price of the other latest releases, which all were priced between $220 - $280 HK (approx $40 - $50 Aussie). Now thats great value!

No need to be sorry mate!

Sharez, you can buy games off eBay from Thailand. Most of the time you don't get the box, you get some horrible thai characters on the manual but hell, game is in english and plays perfectly.
This is what I did in the past, works like a treat.

I'm a bit wary when it comes to Ebay and I think it's just too risky, but
that's me :)

Plus I'm going to HK anyway soooooooo :lol:

No probs. I'll grab their business cards as I'm not sure of the address and send you the details in a couple of days... most likely the day I purchase Civ4!
