Cruise, the game is being released in Europe, Dave is in California. It has to be available before he can import it.

Er, how exactly does this work - I thought if the game is being released in Europe, can't Dave just import it from Europe when its released? headscratch

Today is July 6th. If the game released on time it would just now be going out to stores. Dave would still need to secure some copies snd get them shipped here. And that depends on if he can get it at a reasonable cost. Some times the cost to import raises the price to a point that it doesn't make sense for him to get it because people won't buy it at a higher cost.

Cruise, I just re-read Carla's first post. If you note it says it will be released via download today and available retail later.

I thought from the US you could buy from Amazon in the UK, don't they ship worldwide? Certainly Amazon France ships to Canada and the UK...

Amazon UK will not ship Games to the US or Canada.

I can't read French to see if games are available on the French site. lol

Ana, you are right, although you can get many things delivered to Canada and US from Amazon UK, it appears video games are an exception (although many other countries mostly in Europe can get delivery from the UK):

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_left_sib?ie=UTF8&nodeId=524836

The game industry must have a tight control over distribution...

Amazon France delivers to Europe only, same countries as UK:

http://www.amazon.fr/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=548590

And for instant translation of any page in any language, I suggest you download Google Toolbar, it asks you if you wish to translate at a click of a button:

How do you like it Greyfuss?

rmt, there are not too many places overseas that will ship games to the US. I assume it must have something to do with governing laws or they would snap up the opportunity.

Curious.. Where did you get that WT? I've been looking all over. Nothing yet on the net, and there isn't one in-game either..? Also I only have voice on my game. Can't choose subtitles anywhere... strange....

If someone does have the walkthrough, please do share smile

A PDF of the Manual and Walkthrough should have been installed with the game.

Found the game's pdf w/t, made a copy of this and put it on my desktop for later printing - but I'd like to know if since this w/t has 30 "russian document" pages, which amount to a total of 17 pdf pages, is this the complete w/t from the beginning to the end of the game, or is it only a sample w/t that's just to get you started?

I'd like to know before I print it out in case someone might (possibily MaG?) post a real, complete/full w/t that I'd better spend my ink(and money) on if I wait long enough?

EDIT - Just wanted to let you guys know I bought 1953 KGB (Phobos) via Gamers Gate a few moments ago, installed it, and watched the intro, may play later.

The PDF Walkthrough included in the installation of the game is complete. Because of this I wouldn't think another walkthrough is needed, the game is very short.

Gee, I thought these new releases were supposed to get increasingly longer (higher res graphics, more coding, bigger files, which make these games take longer to finish than these old DOS games used to), so wonder why 1953 is such a short game - is it b/c of lack of lengthy Russian documents (yes, I understand this game's graphics/artwork is based/drawn using real Russian documents) meaning these Russian docs were in short supply?
