Well, it is $60 now and I will not pay that. I'll wait a couple of years and get it at a reasonable price. By then it should be debugged.

its £29.99 surely the pound - dollar isnt 2-1

  It's 59.99 to preorder and get some extra greeks.  I think that's the only way you can get it in the US.

  So the pound still carries far more weight than the dollar.

  I haven't ordered it yet just cuz I'm irrational about preorders.  What if some fantastic East Front game comes along and
all my funds are wrapped up in pre-orders?

I am so tempted to pre-order but I just can't pull the trigger.

You'll feel less proud of yourself but more stress-free after you pre-order.  ;D

^Yes I can vouch for that.

Stay strong, brother!  Just remember how pre-ordering can bite one in the ass.

Except that Rome II follows Shogun II, arguably the best TW game.

I admire your tenacity Command Tent but the Total War series made me it's bitch the first time I whipped Gaul-ass in the first RTW. I like to think of it less as an addiction and more of a disability.  :-\

If that is the case, which I fear it might be, then shouldn't the government be giving me some sort of handout to help deal with or purchase said game.   ;D  ::)

Except that the first Rome -- which everyone here knows I hate with the heat of a supernova -- also followed the first Medieval, which I loved to death, and was (at the time) hailed as one of the best PC titles ever made.  So you'll understand if I'm a little worried about previous precedent.  :P

Do I dare ask why you hate the first Rome TW that much?

Apparently, its 35.71 euros at Gaming Dragons: http://www.gamingdragons.com/en/game/buy-total-war-rome-2-steam-key.html

I bought Mass Effect 3 and Anno 2070 from these guys. They sometimes sell stuff pretty cheap (steam codes, all). Not sure how they do it, but Steam doesn't appear to have any problem with them. One of the things is that they appear to be on manual mode when it comes to sending out codes, they warn you it might take a while 'til you get your code (IIRC I haven't had to wait more than 30 minutes). Not an issue with a pre-order I guess.

I don't think I'll be able to resist it at this price.
