  • Thanks OP. Good price indeed.

  • Bioshock 2 on steam (and everywhere else apparently) still includes Games For Windows Live Or Whatever DRM too. A bit annoying to sign in at first, especially if you don't have an account already.

    Didn't stop me playing, but just FYI.

  • US address Amazon required

  • Rest of the series is on sale as well http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/111903

  • I picked up this package when it came up a few weeks back http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/109306

    Tip from the previous post: When ordering pick a false address in the USA using a state that doesn't have sales tax - say Alaska.

    • here is a list of states that Amazon charge sales tax for, any address not in those states should be fine.

      Though at the bottom it says Electronically delivered products (e-books, e-documents, and electronically delivered software) are considered to be shipped to your current credit card billing address.

      • yeah - I chose a cheap motel in Saratoga, New York - ended up with 7% which I just wore, but will change it for next time - 35c wasnt worth worrying about but the next one may be.

  • After setting up the Amazon account with an US address , then I entered the australian one and never got charged sales tax

    • Can someone give us a rough guide on how to do this? I thought Steam checks your account for US address. So does that mean you can keep existing Steam AU account but sign in with Amazon? I'm confused

      • the purchase is completely separate from steam. you purchase a key from amazon, and use the key to redeem on steam. so steam region is irrelevant.

  • best games of all time

  • The original Bioshock is one of the most perfect games I've played. Story, audio, art style, combat (better than Infinite imo), are all amazing.

  • Hmmm steam says $40?

    Guess it's another Amazon U.S. gip…

  • Anyone have problems with bioshock 2 on windows 8? It doesn't work for me and Ive been looking for fixes on the net and still can't find a solution

  • I've given up trying to complete Bioshock, the terrible mouse movement is the worst I have ever experienced in a game.

    • Have you tried turning Vsync on/off? Also you should be able to adjust mouse sensitivity to your liking in the options. Dead Space 1 on PC was awful, you could hardly use the main menu it was that laggy and slow! Please don't give up on Bioshock, it truly is a masterpiece and you only realise why it's so great later on.

      • I really have tried everything! (I think?). I must have started the game 5 or 6 times over the years, gone on forums, modified ini files, played with vsync etc etc. I usually get about an hour or so through and then can't take it any more. I must say the first hour isn't that fun either but I understand it probably gets a lot better.

        • Oh dear :\
          What is the mouse movement like exactly? Have you tried a controller if you have one and does it play better? Also what version of the game are you playing, from a physical disk or Steam version etc?

        • Yeah Steam version. I think it's just mouse acceleration, I certainly found a lot of complaints about it when I went looking for fixes. I might try it with a controller one day I imagine it must be better (though FPS and controller is kind of wrong..)

        • I see. It's a bit unfortunate that you haven't been able to experience the game properly up to now. Also what mouse are you using and is it fine for all other games?

    • Try http://www.gamefront.com/files/22306419/MarkC_Windows_8+7_Mo..., it's a registry edit which removes mouse acceleration. It works similar to the CPL mousefix for counter-strike in ye olden days
