    murnshaw - Yes, we do. Not sure if currency differences play a part in it though, never thought to find out. The Deep Silver bundle is AU$25 if you want Dead Island Riptide.

    It's US$25 for Riptide here as well. Thanks for the response DogDay, it's good to know.

    Okay first Aussie to private message me gets a game. We'll talk about it and make sure it's something you'd like or even want.

    *EDIT* DogDay was the first to message me. Happy Gift a Game to an Aussie Day!

    MGreyson, thank you so much for your kind gift. I knew this community was good, but I never thought my silly post would garner more than a chuckle. And now I've got Civ 5! Ace bru, much love your way.

    Not really if you have their email or a friend of a friend works as well

    EDIT - Scratch that, let an Aussie take it. They need free games more than us Brits.

    @chartinboy friend request sent.

    Tube, I checked to see if there was a game called "A Big Platinum Bus" and I'd just never heard of it. You got me.

    REALLY?! What part of gift a game to an AUSSIE or KIWI wasn't clear...

    Randomly picking people who have posted makes me feel like an asshat, so let's do this: I have copies of Portal 1 and Breath of Death VII sitting in my inventory, and I'd be willing to spring for a copy of Papers, Please for someone because it is COMPLETELY GODDAMNED AMAZING. Post (or repost) which one you want and your user name, and I'll send them.

    I've got a copy of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon in my inventory left over from the Summer Sale that I'll probably never get around to playing once classes start again.

    First Aussie to respond can have it and start hiding inside from all the monsters that inhabit your country. My Steam name is the same as on here.

    Edit: Kiwis also welcome.

    Not *every* Aussie is exposed to the pricing shenanigans, btw.

    Once upon a time, I just fooled Steam by typing my *actual* billing address and changing parts of the address to Beverly Hills, California. (Only postcode in the US I know ftw!)

    Was good enough for credit card verification, and I've noticed that since a few years ago, I no longer need to do any VPN trickery to even get Steam prices listed in US$. If I had to hazard a guess, I think the Valve billing department came across my account, noticed that my location was Australia, that all my purchases were in US$, and did their best not to screw me over.

    For friends, I have a secondary account I created with all the region protection stuff circumvented and use that to purchase and gift games for them, without risking losing my primary frankencount.

    And I've found that it's not *always* Australia getting discriminated against either. PvZ2 in Australia world first, anyone? Hell, if Sony's European and American divisions were to vary up their PS Plus titles a lot more between regions, I'd probably be willing to buy two subscriptions.

    I may be poor, but I do have a copy of Half Life 2 sitting in my gift inventory. An Aussie or Kiwi who has never tasted the sweet flavours of HL2 should let me know and I will gift it to you. :-)

    Im guessing you need to have them as friends in order to gift them games, right? I just send 2 aussies and one new zealeander a friend request. Just accept them!

    Alright, let's try something different:

    Dear Australian and New Zealand PA Forum goers.

    I want to give someone a copy of Spelunky OR Saints Row 3. They are both great games.

    Send me a direct message with your Steam user name. First person to message me gets the game.

    I have an extra copy of Limbo, a nice - albeit creepy - little indie game. Message me if you are from AU or NZ and want to have it!

    Edit: my Limbo has been gifted to kangarooland

    As someone who has been buying and gifting games to his Aussie friends for years, ever since that silly Aussie-only version of Left for Dead 2 came out, I support this movement wholeheartedly.

    Hug a toaster today, they need love too!

    Hello Australian & New Zealand gamers! I would love to give one of you a copy of XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I think this is a fantastic reboot of a series I love and I like to share it with someone. Plz message me your Steam ID. Plz, if you have already been given a game by another generous donor, don't steal this opportunity from another oppressed gamer. Thanks

    I'll give away a copy of Ben There, Dan That!/Time Gentlemen, Please! to any Southern Hemispherian who contacts me on Steam (I'm Kappa Tau, look for the same userpic). BTDT/TGP are a pair of really funny point and click adventure games that everyone should play. Time travel, lots of accidental murders, Nazi dinosaurs, what's not to love?

    If any Aussie wants a copy of Fallout 3 on Steam, hit me up. I've got a spare. :)
    Same name/same avatar.

    Dear Double Fine,
    How much will I have to give to Kickstarter to let us all go back to calling it "TRENCHED!" instead of Iron Brigade?
    Sincerely, -ZZoMBiE13

    I have a copy of Civ 4 for an aussie out there. I know its not the newest game in the world but it would be the free-est game for you... Steam name same as forum name.
