You guys probably already know this, but you only need a U.S. account to buy the game - once it's downloaded, you can use your regular European XBL profile to play the game, so you don't have to lose the achievement points or refriend your existing group.

At least that should work - it works for us in Australia for other games! (Thankfully Trenched was released in OZ :))

They should just call it Drenched!

I'm a european wizard and that's fucked up.

And this is why you do some market research before naming your game.

@ZimboDK: bravo!
 
I don't mind waiting really just give it to us 1/2 price when it comes out.

If they wanted the name I guess they should've put a ring on it.

OH DIP.

Been checking xbla every damn day for this! ARG!

#109 Posted by Rekt_Hed (848 posts) -

call it 'I can't believe its not Trenched!'

Fuck all of these people. This is something you think about BEFORE the game releases, not on the fucking day of release.

This is absolutely the worst and makes me hate copyright law. It's not even got the same name!

Trademark law. It's not the same.

That sucks. All Europeans should have direct salute control.

Did anyone actually watch the video on the dude's front page?

It's pretty full of itself for a board game.

Is this what boredgaming companies have left now? Try and occasionally block a video game release out of spite?

Call it "I can't beleive it's not Trenched".

Pedanticism must be the worst superpower to have.

How would anyone confuse these 2, for a start you cannot buy this board game on XBLA and you cannot buy Trenched anywhere but there. there is no conflict here and the issue should be dropped. 
 
In America it seems there is some sort of law which allows for products of the same or similar name as long as there is no Market confusion, which of course in this case there isnt but it seems europe does not have this.

#118 Posted by Death_Burnout (3797 posts) -

This really is the most ridiculous, bullshit reason i have ever heard to not put a game out. I don't give a shit about what the law says, they are not the same effing product...

Figuratively speechless!

#119 Posted by EndlessMike (516 posts) -

The board game actually looks pretty cool.

#120 Posted by thebatmobile (981 posts) -

This is the biggest bummer in a loong time.

Fuck.

#121 Posted by RChan (12 posts) -

It's too bad you can't gift XBLA games.

#122 Posted by MeatSim (10849 posts) -

Board games need to get out of the way of Video Games.

I proposed this a few weeks back but nobody wanted to do it. Just bomb the dude's e-mail and voilà

"EU Trenched" ...Solved

#125 Posted by Daiphyer (1337 posts) -

It's STILL not out. My God...

#126 Posted by Hooded (435 posts) -

I gave up and bought it on an American account, so glad I did. The game is amazing. If you buy it on an American account, make sure you buy American Microsoft points (I got mine from Gamepointsnow.com) and buy it on the same console your main profile is on and then you can play it on your main profile :)

Great game! Almost completed it.

What the hell is going on with this?

That wouldn't work, the word trench is the problem here.
