Iron Brigade (Trenched) finally out in Europe!

#1 Posted by bibamatt (1123 posts) -

Yes, comrades! Iron Brigade has finally fought off the lawsuits and has made it's bizarre way over to our fair shores. How many of you have been waiting patiently for it? Interestingly, they haven't changed the virtual artwork (that appears when you find it in your game library). That still says Trenched. Has the title of the game changed for US folk?

Here's my Iron Brigade chap saluting my cat in celebration.

I imagine that somewhere deep in the bowels of Microsoft HQ a lawyer is having stroke while screaming insensibly for someone to change the artwork before the Portuguese fella sees it. How many months have they had to sort this out and someone (a soon to be unemployed someone) puts up the wrong JPEG.

I was patiently waiting for it, but at some point the excitement I originally had for the game kind of fizzled.

Sorry Iron Brigade, it just wasn't meant to be! : (

I've been having a blast playing online with some random people, although I'm unsure if there's just no in-game voice chat or whether everyone I've played with doesn't want to talk.

Just a shame I won't really be able to use my Xbox for about 2 weeks... :|

Oh well, what's another 2 weeks?

@mscupcakes: I've barely played yet (just did the tutorial) but would be up for some multiplayer if you want to add me? That applies to anyone else, too. I imagine a lot of US players have moved on now. GT - Bibamatt

Sweet! I got the email super late last night but forgot to start it downloading. 
I got gold on all levels in the campaign by myself in Trenched earlier this year, so I'm really looking forward to the survival mode.

@MrMooEar: Did all European players get the Double Fine paint job or am I special? :D

Not going to be getting this now, over 6 months later than originally planned (I actually had bought points in advance waiting for its release! Was very disappointed that it didn't come out then). Then there's the fact that when it finally was released over here it came out without a trial version available (I believe it is now) is just ridiculous. I have lost all desire I had to play this game name all because of this stupid naming thing and the way it's been badly handled. Which sucks for the Double Fine guys as they do a great job but I can't support Microsoft for all the shit they've done with this. Sorry guys.
