(OT) Euro PS3 to play fewer old games than Jap and US versions



  • 1. FEAR2 ?2.49 on Steam this weekend
    For me the demo was'ok' but neither it, nor the comments on here encouraged me to pay full price for it. But... for 2.49 I'm tempted. For those of you that played it - its worth this price?

1.GalCiv2: Update issues (Euro version)

Today I received the German version CE of GalCiv2. After installing and
briefly running it (ran just fine), I went to the Stardock site, registered
my copy, downloaded the Stardock Central and then downloaded the latest
patch that was displayed. After its successful installation, the start menu
of the game was now in English (wouldn't be a problem), but after clicking
"play game", the software now crashes right after the intro (the German
intro didn't have any music or speech, my updated version now does). It
just says that a bug was encountered and that the application must be

So, what am I to do? The manual refers to the GalCiv2.com site. There is no
official German site and thus no patch that is dedicated to the German
version of the game. My guess is that every buyer of the German version
will do exactly the same as I did (it was just released today, on the

I know, I should simply have bought the English version and save myself any
such trouble, but well, hindsight ... I'm now sitting here on a CE that I
apparently have to uninstall, reinstall, and play in the previous,
allgededly slightly buggy version. Not to mention that I am on ISDN (little
better than dial-up) and spent the afternoon downloading (and paying for
for it) nearly 80 MB for nothing.

Any pointers?

3.NWN:SoU US-Version and UK-Version

Hey there

I have the US-Version of NWN. But now I don't find a local Game-Shop, where I can buy the US-Version of SoU. Importing from the US
can be quite expensive. Now I found some shops in the UK... Are the US- and UK-Version compatible?

4.GalCiv2: Euro version multilibgual?

This is mostly for Brad, but perhaps anyone else knows the answer also: Is
the German/European release of GalCiv2 going to be multilingual? In other
words, will I be able to choose the installation language?

I'm asking because the continental EU version will be just 35 Euro (release
on the 16th) and the import version is sold at fifty Euro over here, and
the former is also less complicated to get my hands on.


5.No one playing EUFA Euro 2004?

I read a favourable review at Gamespot but am looking for some user
input before I decide to puchase or not.. Is it much improved over
FIFA 2004?
