Get it while it's still available!

For all those who are arguing about keyboard and mouse vs controller.

Keyboard & mouse is ALWAYS better for FPS and strategy games.
Excluding a racing wheel controllers are better for racing games.
That is all.

You must at least play Bioshock 1 - best single player game of all time IMHO. The story telling and atmosphere is just in a different league to anything else you'll ever play. Bioshock 2 I can't say the same but it's still a relatively good game.
At last, it's nice to see these two finally discounted.
the lack of controller support on bioshock 2 is a pain in teh ass but never the less, a good deal.

Go to your adress book and add a new adress,. I used:
Circuscircus
2880 S Las Vegas Blvd
Las Vegas, Nevada
Zip: 89109
phone: +1 877-434-9175

The re add your uk card then it goes though fine, cheers op!.
You have to sign up with an US shipping address, doesnt matter which card you use though. There was guide floating around online last i checked.
So simple, thanks!!
Good Price, but I think both games have the terrible Games for Windows Live DRM and Bioshock 2 doesn't even have controller support.
Whilst Bioshock 2 isn't as good as the first it's still in it's own right a very good game.

FPS are always better with whatever control method you are most comfortable with. Some people aren't little nerds who sit hunched over a desk, they may wish to relax on a sofa and enjoy it that way.

Hehe, stereotyping much? I'm always on my PC, and have a ridiculously comfy armchair, a mini fridge, and play on my 32-inch TV. No hunching involved, thanks.:)
You don't need to hunch over a desk using a keyboard and mouse. I don't understand the hate against PC gamers. If you want to see recent games in how they are made to be seen then you need to p[lay on PC. At the end of the day it does not matter if you prefer a mouse or a pad.
Psst, i play with KB&M myself but you know.. those that go on about how it's so superior deserve to be called nerds.
I guess it's mostly because they're talking about accuracy, and regardless of preference, there's no way the two are comparable.:)

I play mostly on PC cause you can't get high quality graphics like this on Xbox

Oh for sure, but Bioshock is a single player game with pretty average shooting mechanics, you don't need pinpoint accuracy here.

Ah but will this be cheaper in the steam summer sale?

I never did this, but created an account on Amazon.com itself. I used Google's address, and have made many purchases without issue.

Only when playing competitively. For solo play controller is more enjoyable

Or sign up for a free borderlinx address.

I think I'm right in saying you'll get GFW live achievements too (Xbox Live).

If you see the 'only available to US' message at the checkout then look on the right below the
price details. You should see a 'Change' link to alter your billing address.
Change to a US address and the message should go away.
That worked for me.

I didn't like it. Got to a big daddy and didn't understand why I couldn't kill it.
I've just recently started playing Infinite but haven't played the first and second, is it still worth going back and getting this deal?

You can kill them. They don't even take as much damage as you think. I think it just throws you because you suddenly have this behemoth up in your face.:)
I loved the 1st one but never played the 2nd. The first game is worth it alone though.

You can just disable it.
The only positive to GFWL is boosting your Xbox Live Gamerscore....but if you don't care go ahead and disable it (fairly easy to do)

Oh, good.
Matty, it took ages to find your profile. Now do you believe that profile wasn't me? I'll unblock you if you do. I would have sent you a PM, but it wouldn't let me. Also nice deal, I'll be nice and give you heat.
