    So this february I am departing the UK forever and going to live with my fiancee in Brisbane... Trouble is that I have to pretty much sell up my life over here and start over when I get there.

    I have listed a bunch of stuff on eBay that you guys might be interested in...

    PS3 Console
    XBOX 360 Elite Console
    Street Fighter 4 FightStick Tournament Edition
    Batman Arkham City
    Super Street Fighter 4
    Mass Effect 2
    Oblivion

    if you guys are interested in any of the above then check out my eBay profile to see my life on sale :)

    Thanks,
    Matt

    You could keep your PS3 games and use them in Australia.

    You could make a mint over there, games cost a fortune.

    Games sell for between 60-70 new over there, I would think carefully if you are planning to rebuy them.

    It's true... when I went over to australia a few months ago for the first time I was paranoid for the first week about spiders and snakes...

    After a few days though you relax and realise that in the city, theres not that much stuff that will 'fuck you up' Go out of the city though and the roadsides are littered with dead brown snakes...

    I would completely shit my pants if i came across a brown snake.

    and ps. she's got my balls so tight in her vice like grip that video games will be a distant memory to me... the very best i can hope for is to sneak in some Skyrim on my PC (which I will have to buy when I get over there) and then quickly flick the screen back to Photoshop when she comes in the room.

    He could shit in a bag, or his hands, then dispose of it. No need to have to check the bowl.

    Well you don't have to be whipped by it. Plenty of cool girls out there. If someone is willing to use it in that manner, they're not the nicest of people.

    Btw, what the fuck are you doing moving to Australia? We'll be down to one striker.

    I'm currently hanging out with my wonderful girlfriend at home; i've been trying to get a trophy on Arkham City for the last 20 minutes but now she's laughing her ass off at me because i went to Google it, she picked up the controller and got it in one go, such is her awesome gaming skills.

    Life is good :)

    I hope you asked her to give up the soaps/Cosmo?

    I killed a brown snake on my wife's parwnts farm. I tried to run it over in the ute but missed, when I opened the door it was right under.my.feet. That's me holding the dead snake in my profile pic. Scared the shit out of me when I picked it up because it was still moving/spasming

    Nothing wrong with Australia mate! Weather is just starting to warm up, Although in queensland its always warm! Keep your games, same region as the uk and when your over here do what i do, import the PAL games from ebay, its bucket loads cheaper. Its no secret that games are filthy dear in the shops down here, so pick a bargain where you can. Your just in time for the cricket season to start, but hopefully youll enjoy the awesome AFL when it starts next feb/march, welcome down under! Brisbane is within a few hours of the awesome sunshine coast and gold coast anyway, excellent places to be during summer!

    The only thing that shits me living down here is that up in the uk its winter this time of year when all the big games get released and its bloody summer here, you wont want to play games when its nice and sunny outside! But we do anyway!

    Also; Funnel Web spiders can swim. Lethal, and can swim, I just don't know how you can begin to defend against that.

    I think you can trade the games in over here as well (or so I was told in GAME). Id think about doing that frankly, games are hugely expensive.

    I've turned off all the avatars and crap, so don't expect me to be impressed by yours.

    You might actually be gutted once over there. I've watched Wolf Creek.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Which part of Brisbane Velios? I live on the south side and have been for nearly 3 years. As others have rightly said, games here are very expensive and you should definitely keep your games and bring them with you, you'll regret it if you don't!

    Oh and don't worry about snakes and spiders. I rarely see any snakes, in fact I haven't seen one however I have seen spiders than can jump, yes JUMP! Definitely not as bad as people make out.

    Oh and get ready for the heat, it's starting to get HOT.

    I like it when he's angry.

    Yeah, game prices here are a bit of a shock. New releases go for $100 + and it takes ages for the price to drop. JB Hi Fi are starting to sell some new releases for about $70-80. I recommend ozgameshop.com.au and just importing games grom Europe for half the price you'd pay here.

    I live in Brisbane way on the northside, no idea what Cooparoo is like.
