You know there is another comic about video games including the "day of the tentacle" monster. It is called "starkiller - scourge of the galaxy". Most of its jokes are even funnier because their are all the truether 25 years later.

I'm sry... When I bought diablo 3 i preordered on newegg for 10 dollars cheaper... but I didn't realize that the game wouldn't ship until the release date so I had to wait close to a week before I got it... Meanwhile everyone and their brother was playing it in the dorm I was living in at the time

[url=#user_comment_181103]@Geary[/url]: Still not cool, but that's just the least harmful form of regional discrimination. Origin sells people games on euro(2.5 times dollar value) on any non US region. Steam refuses to sell any game with GFWL outside US, so no Dark Souls. And there's more. It's so bad.
Meh?

It's basically Borderlands 1.5, I have no idea how they took 3 years to release this.

[url=#user_comment_181089]@Menash[/url]: They're not discriminating, they're just releasing the day after that area takes note of how much of things have been sold. It's entirely for the purpose of boosting their first-week sales numbers, and nobody gets hurt by a two or three day delay.

Regionally discriminating bullshit is one of the worst kinds of business practices in the world and should be made illegal. Being able to bypass it does not right that wrong.
There's no reasonable justification for that kind of treatment, specially in the age of the internet.

But the game is shitty anyway, waste of 60 whatever . It's basicly mindless MMO grinding put into an FPS. And it's not even an MMO lulz. Same boring stuff back in the first game is still boring in this one, not a single damn improvement made. You just go pew pew, we passed that since Half Life.

@Same Russian: But Russians and some Baltic states get a region locked Russian only version which you can only play with other people who have that version of the game.

If it makes you feel any better, the game is absolutely amazing and everything everyone wanted it to be for the next 48 hours, after which it will be mediocre trash!

That's not bad at all. Every ex-USSR (an even Baltic) gamer who pre-purchased this game from Steam will get crappy-translated Russian version with "Russian ghetto" multiplayer instead. Well, 2K proposed moneyback, but there's virtually no options to get normal EU version now.

I agree with the sentiment. Chile here and I was gonna get together with friends to play the game (we bought the 4pack) and when we found it was a very FUUUUUUUU moment -.-

I bought Civ V on the day it released.
Only to find when I got home that my video card could not run it. I had to wait until christmas to get a new card.

I wasn't even expecting it since I never really got into the original borderlands (I sucked at it), but when I saw 2 was out I played it and I must say its jolly good fun.

It's even worse in Russia, locked until 21 and about 5 days ago my pre-ordered euro-version turned into russian with language and region-lock. Hate you, 2k.

Seriously, there's absolytely no reason for this, other than "LOLOLO you can't sell digital copies of the game before stupid retailers in Europe/South America/Australia/whatever get their loads of boxes".
Good thing Torchlight 2 releases simultaneously worldwide.

You can use a VPN to unlock the game earlier. You just have to keep Steam offline until the official release date in your country.
