Fallout 3 certainly is a gem and one of the games i had the most return on value from.

Loved everything about it. Unfortunely i havent had time to play more than the first couple of hours on New vegas but it certainly is a series i enjoy alot.

The combat in Deadly Premonition is some the chunkiest I've played for a long long time it's like going back to 1996 and playing Silent Hill 1.

Those are still some of my favorite racing games ever. The perfect blend of arcade and realistic controls for me. More realistic than Ridge Racer but not as unforgiving as Forza and the like.

Cheap compared to the normal 5-600 kroner here, which is around $90-$100.

Unless I'll just wait until it becomes a classic which is around 2-300 kroner ($40-$50).

At least I got the orange box from play for just £10, and prices like that are unheard of around here.

progmetal is right. Western Europe(including Scandinavia) have bizarrely high tax rates. 70 USD amounts to about 50 EUR, while standard game prices for new games here hover around 60 EUR(85 dollars). So yeah, 70 USD is actually cheap compared to the standard prices for new games here.

Importing games from U.S. retailers is often offset by high shipping costs and customs fees. The only alternative to save some money are U.K. retailers, because they are geographically closest and belong to the same union(so no additional bureaucratic fees).

If you think that's ass rape though you probably don't want to know what the income tax rate is here. That would be ass rape by an overly hung horse.

I tried it out for a bit yesterday, and yeah, it's kind of clunky. From what I hear though, the game is so over the top in its weirdness that I had to grab it. This gen is really missing some old fashioned Japanese weirdness other than this and No More Heroes.

You do realize that there is a PS3 port of Deadly Premonition and I do believe that it is in English too.
