Shame they had to change name but FUCK YES! Fuck that Portuguese cunt. (No offense to anyone else happening to be of that nationality, obviously.)

I think this whole debacle only really affects those who actually follow video games seriously. I can't see this affecting sales. I'm still gonna buy it.

It has already been released in some European countries with its original name. I live in Norway and we got it day one. Looks like non-EU countries have had it all the time. Can anyone from another from a non-EU country confirm this?

Woop!

What a crazy situation that, name is so weird. IT SHALL ALWAYS BE TRENCHED IN MY EYES! -salute-

Excited.

Such a generic name. Really don't like it. Maybe there is an in game reason but I won't know that until I buy it. Trenched was the perfect name.

Shame its a generic-ass name but ok.

Also Drenched is for the submarine spin off, obviously

It hasn't been released in any European countries because of the copyright issues.

Norway isn't part of Europe.

Another thread on this site confirmed that it was a EU only patent that was holding up the game's release. Ergo, all non-EU countries (Norway, Switzerland etc.) could download without any troubles.

Good. Good. This pleases me.

Yes, fucking finally!

Good to hear. Might be picking this up once the games of this fall begin to chill down.

#16 Posted by Mnemoidian (955 posts) -

I'd feel much better if there was a confirmation about it still being a game about love...

Iron Brigade sounds very generic, but *shrug*, as long as we get it eventually? I'm itching to throw some money at Double Fine.

I assure you Norway is in Europe. I mean look at any map.

It's in Europe but not a part of the European Union politically so different laws apply. It also means that my Norwegian friends have to pay foreign fees at universities in Europe as opposed to the domestic cost all EU citizens (i.e. lower fees) are entitled to.

The timing is unfortunate ... too many great games are being released in September and the following months.

@Niall_Sg1: Norway is not part of the EU. That's probably what he meant.

Indeed. EU patent laws are the issue, there are no such things as 'European laws'.

I thought Europe was only France, next thing i know you will probably even tell me that Denmark is part of EU too.

Ehhh ok, i guess you didn't get my post. But being from Denmark and being part of Europe might make me dumb and not get your lame or rather shitty troll picture.

That's a pretty stupid stance for one of the best downloadable games this year.

Ah dude I was meant to make you chuckle, I assumed you were joking... I know Denmark is a part of Europe and I know that saying France is only Europe is silly, I really thought it was a joke.

I'm sorry if I offended you I didn't mean it. :<

How so?

All my regular gaming friends are all from America, I.e they've already played all the way through this game and unlocked everything.

I see no point in me getting it now and playing with randoms, mostly because this game is basically made to play with friends.

Get friends where you live? Or state that opinion up front instead of saying "that ship has sailed", as if the game has no value because it's late. In your strange circumstance, perhaps. But for most people in Europe Trenched is just an awesome game that came out a bit late.

Finally although that name is goddamn horrible. It sounds like a shitty rip-off toy collection that Ashens would review.

I didn't feel like my statement reads as if I'm talking for everyone, granted it doesn't read like I'm talking very personally either. Are you one of those types that wants an "in my opinion" after every sentence?

EDIT: either way there's hardly a point to us arguing since it'll just end with us disagreeing with each other either way, so let us stop it here.

Way to late to still be hyped about it...
