@smeffw: As with all products released across borders prices generally have to do with licensing, tariffs and the market they are selling to. It's why Netflix can only serve certain content to each country and why they have to pay content creators again each time they want to release it to a new country.

After that you have to deal with each retailer's promotional deals with the distributor on a per country basis. Bigger markets can make bigger numbers so they often get a better deal. Perhaps the EU's "borderless" nature can allow a better deal to companies there or perhaps their market doesn't support that price point while the US market does? It can get rather complex when dealing with so many varied factors.

TLDR: It's complicated and governments/laws become involved. The only real way to change the market is to have a true boycott on price which is impossible in a country with so much wealth.

This is my Civilization V time played... My friends will no longer play with me since I was nuclear capable while they were researching gunpowder. Do I have a problem?

I thought it would be Destiny based on Bungie's reputation for making a good story but unfortunately that's the weakest part of the game. I still play the crap out of that game because of other hooks but it doesn't feel well rounded. My list is probably something like Dragon Age: Inquisition for top spot with Jazzpunk and Wolf Among Us for runners up. DA:I was relentless in presenting some of the best story content and RPG combat encounters I've seen in a long time.

I'm surprised so few people seem dialed in to Jazzpunk. Maybe it's just too weird and flies under most radar. That or maybe the inability to explain anything from that game without sounding like some kind of lunatic makes word of mouth tough.

We can see so much further because we stand on the shoulders of giants.

Thank you Ralph Baer for the many wonders I have seen.

I asked that dog about LOOM but he wouldn't give me the key to the cell door.

I think I'm fine with a piece that describes the reaction to the Nintendo statement (which this was) rather than the article that speaks to artefacts of the past. While it's sometimes interesting to know how the sausage gets made it's the cooked and prepared version you want most.

There is an official YouTube video out indicating a march release of Fulgore. Also the announcer goes batshit insane at the end.

Man I wish they were doing a quick look of this game. It seems ham fisted in a way the GB community loves. Probably the only God of War clone I'd be interested in.

You still get kicked off if you're playing a game and the "family" member logs in. That means it's great for households with a single computer but don't bother trying to log in with multiple systems at once.

Oh i want to see Microsofts reaction.

They'll probably just say, "Yep we've been doing that for years now."

It's not a library share so much as a multiple user login to a single account.
