Times have changed, no longer buying box version but buying download version.

I guess the good thing is never have to worry about lost/damaged CD. Can always re-download when needed or buy new PC.

Question: Those download games sold at the Adventure Shop, is it available world wide, including Canada?

Ps. Noticed Amazon.com box and download games are only for USA Customers with USA billing address.

On download games how do you remember where you got them from. I have so many I don't remember half of where I got them.

Richard-

I know what you mean. I've been keeping an email folder with the confirmation emails I get from wherever I buy the downloads (they usually have a download link as well). Then I just usually do a search on that folder for the name of the game I bought. It's the only way I've been able to find some of them. Fortunately I don't delete too many emails from places I've bought the games from.

It might be a good idea to also keep track of how many times you actually download the same game as in some cases the number of permitted downloads is limited yes
