Can someone please tell me what it means if you are in the group of being a tester?

It simply means you're awesome. :)

Okay, so here's the deal. I currently have about $80 store credit sitting on a pre-order for Assassin's Creed 2 at The Gamesman. Thing is that I'm not actually sure if that's what I want. I'll definitely get the game at some point, but I'm not entire convinced that it's worth $120 to play at launch when I know that it will be $60 or less in like 60 months.

So, what do I do with this store credit? I don't want to take cash as it was from a trade and I'll get less. I have been looking at getting Modern Warfare 2, but it's $150 and that just seems sooooo much for a game. I looked at Dragon Age: Origins, but the lack of protagonist voice acting just seems lazy after Mass Effect and turns me off a bit. This, however, might change when I play it as I might not notice like I do when watching a video. My missus wants me to use it to get her that new Kingdom Hearts game for DS, although I did just buy her a PS3...

Or I could just chip in an extra $20 and get a couple of WoW time cards. 4 months of play...

TL;DR version:

Dragon Age, Modern Warfare 2, Assassin's Creed 2, Kingdom Hearts DS for the missus, or some WoW game cards: which should I get?

Tekken 6 :)

Na, that is a really tough choice man. If it were me, I'd grab Assassin's Creed 2, but that's just me. Depends if you enjoy online shooters.

Also, tell her to buy her own games, jeez.

You might bite off my head for this, but Dj Hero looks like a bit of fun.

But I say Modern Warfare 2. I cannot see the price for that one going down anytime soon while the others will be cheap by June next year.

I know it was a typo - but that made me lol. Sounds like Nintendos pricing model. Price drop every 4-5 years. Maybe.

Out of those games you've listed, Id go with Dragons Age. MW2 is a rip off. AC2 if anything like the first is a rental at the very best. Your Missus has no need for games as she shouldn't really be enjoying leisure time when she should be in the bloody kitchen. WoW is....WoW. Break the cycle.

Hato: I'm pretty pissed at what they did to Tekken 6, and since my offline competition will be limited to the AI, I think I'll just stick with Tekken 5.

Soyerz: Not going to bite your head off, but DJ Hero is just a tad out of my price range.

EDIT:

Uber: LOL. Yeah, Nintendo suck with prices. Only company I've seen that's actually given their consoles a price increase.

What's the deal with the Dragon Age DLC? Anyone know?

Dude, I would go Assassin's Creed 2. Patrice Desilets seems to have some interesting new ideas he is trying to implement into gaming with this game.

They look pretty sweet and actually design stuff for gamers by gamers. They are a tad pricey though,

In my opinion, the arctosa looks nicer, and cheaper too. I can't see much difference between them, performance wise.

I was in Westfeild Lower Hutt the other day and went into a shop that sells imported phones and digital cameras. I cannot remember what it is called for the life of me so I would really love it if someone could tell me the name of it.

Thanks.
