Of course we're all gonna buy it, that's like asking people at a baseball game if they like baseball. We're here cuz we're interested!!

You gotta add a new "Shiver me timbers, there be warez among the scurvy seas" poll option though - not for me, I already preloaded on Steam.

Steam! I think...

I think i'll do steam. Cheaper and a backup in case my computer dies AGAIN :x Just a quick question. Will I have access to IV and Steam servers if I do that? Also, if I get the IV version, Is the boxed version a backup of the download, or could I give it to a friend so I could nuke him too? :twisted:

I voted on the first option some time ago, but unfortunatelly IV store doesn't support customers outside UK, so I'm pretty much left without this game.
If it ever shows in local store then I'll grab it. I don't count on it much though, cuz there's no local publisher interested.

Wrong, IV does support customers outside the UK, they just don't support Visa Electrons issued outside of the UK. You can still use most other cards or even PayPal.

At the moment there's a very regretable problem with one type of card. I am sure that IV are doing everything within their power in order to get it fixed.

Paypal can't handle Visa electron by any chance?

I pre-bought a copy for my wife from the IV store, and a copy for myself from Steam.


Best regards,

Ok, you almost answered my question (although I had read the FAQ and was just checking that that was right.) What I want to know is will the boxed version be just a back up of the download, or can I give it to a friend and we will both be able to play?

As far as I can tell, you will receive one authorization key per purchase. Thus, the CD will be a backup copy.
