I've got Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY and Bastion left over from the latest Humble Bundle.

 

Who doesn't have them, but would like them?

Would it surprise you if I said I own Shadow of Mordor but haven't played it yet?

 

Bastion looks interesting though. I'd be happy to have it if no one else wants it.

Part of BlizzCon. Apparently it is free for anyone on PC who doesn't already have it

Think it goes for a couple of weeks, not sure when it will disappear from your gifts if you haven't redeemed it

Those who are thinking of getting Fallout 76, it can be had on Amazon for a pineapple, and free delivery if you're a Prime member;

https://www.amazon.com.au/Fallout-76-C-Exclusive-Amazon/dp/B07H9817VP

If you're not a Prime member, I'm pretty sure they offer one month free and another month's subscription is only worth a fiver (probably cheaper than delivery anyway).

Mum was telling me the other day they are currently offering $4 a month til Jan 2019, than it goes back to $7 (i think thats base price) not to shabby imo. But the amount of subscription services these days is off the chain... ive got a sub to Netflix, Spotify, WWE Network and Stan, now ive gotta sub to the Disney one too haha... when it comes avail i guess.

Time will tell, but I might have gotten Fallout 76 for free...

 

Ordered from the above Amazon page. Earlier yesterday I received an email saying that there was a delay and they were still waiting on the item from their supplier. I then received another email in the afternoon from Amazon Customer Service;

Due to an unforeseen delay, we have not been able to send out your order of Fallout 76: S.*.*.C.*.*.L. Edition (Exclusive to Amazon AU) (PC) in time to arrive today. We know how important it was to receive it by today and we'd like to offer you the following code (yeah-nahh-yeah-nahh) to get access to the game online. We’ll be sending out your order as soon as possible, however if you prefer to cancel it, you can cancel it in Your Orders.

 

I used my code to redeem the game through the Bethesda Launcher, the game is downloading, I've checked my account transaction history and it shows that I've added the game to my account on today.

 

Then I went onto Amazon and cancelled my order as instructed... and it said my order was cancelled and I haven't been charged.

@Dallyfergo cheap games going around at the moment to add to your PS4 collection.

 

I've just bought Spider Man ($39) and God of War ($29) from Amazon. They also have The Last of Us Remastered for $19 and Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for $33. Pretty sure I saw Spyro there too for not very much. All with free delivery.

 

Then I went over to the Big W site and ordered Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection, Uncharted 4 and Uncharted The Lost Legacy for $19 each plus $3.90 delivery.

Also as part of that every game had to have a local price set for it, or it couldn't be sold here. 

This currently means that some games are unable to be purchased. Including most Microsoft games, Factorio, Vermintide 2, and lots of Indies. 

Hopefully this gets fixed up quickly. 

 

And the prices don't look horrible, pretty close to the conversion rate anyway.

Most games look like they haven't gone with the "Australia" tax so far... 

Some appear to be about the same as bricks and mortar stores, but nothing seems stupid like the old $99USD for some games

My concern is that for current games they might use a quick conversion, but for new releases they may make the most of this opportunity. It may actually make it harder to compare prices to other sites such as Good Old Games etc. Fingers crossed they don't get greedy.

I have noticed that Humble has started using AUD for its store (Not currently for the bundles or the Monthly sub).

So hopefully other stores follow suit and we get all stores in AUD so it is easy to compare again. 

I'm happy to see it in AUD though, and not have to worry about what the current conversion rate is
