I pre-purchased on Steam. Even after a 10-15GB download, it is still cheaper than buying it for $99 in the stores...

I have many many games on Steam I bought during the Christmas sale I really should play first, and hope ME2 comes down in price before I do.

But..  I rate the first game way up with Deus Ex and Starcontrol 2 as one of the best games I've ever played so I reallly should (and probably will) get this too.

Now I just need to justify it to the wife..

If I was to get it, I'd be buying it from Steam. Cheaper, no packaging is better for the environment, and it's only a few button presses away.

If you don't feel like playing it through again and lost your save game. Just check this out and grab a save that made the same choices you did :)

N7 is the ident of the Normandy (the ship). It was in ME1 as well.

I note Courierpost seem to have lost my copy. Or rather, fails at Day 1 Delivery.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

Courierpost are pretty fail.

A workmate and I can order the same thing from 1-day, he gets it delivered to his home and it arrives the next day. I get it delivered to the office and it arrives 3 days later, this happens everytime.

Even had a package sent to me with Saturday Delivery stickers all over it and it arrived Wednesday.

Nothing like paying extra for Saturday delivery only for them to:

a) Not even attempt to deliver it
b) Not let you pick it up because it's not in the "Saturday cage" (but is in the depot)
c) Charge you extra for it.

Just to take us off topic completely, they have their sucky moments but sadly courierpost are the best courier company around. NZ couriers, or gof forbid fastway are FAR worse.
