    I am reading a lot of posts about how much "we" europeans want to get our hands on this (hopefully) great game. Most of us can not wait untill the 4the of november.

    So now here is the thing in some way i am actually glad about this date, why?

    • this gives me time to mentally prepare for the game.
    • I am still making a list with things to buy so i can shut myself off from this world and enter my own. Like snacks, drinks and a DVD reader...:mischief:
    • This way i can actually study and pass my exams next week. Since i have nothing better to do than wait for civilization to come to me.

    To me those reasons are pretty good... But still! Something doesn't feel right and I find myself searching this forum every hour for pics and posts :blush:

    There'll be a couple of patches out by next week too, which will come in handy... ;)

    Well, I got the game yesterday from a French retailer, and it seems the same in Germany at least. So the Nov 4 release date was wrong.

    And the game rocks by the way...

    Has it officialy been released in Germany? Or is it just a "you can get it now but don't tell anybody" thing? I want it so much... I must have it this weekend..

    Here in France it's out in every store or almost. The 4 november is a BS. Only a few online shops pretend respecting this date.

    Actually wouldn't mind having it in my hands while waiting for the patch. So yes, I'm disturbed by the release date mess.

    So far everywhere in the UK (that I've found anyway) is respecting the 4th Nov release date. It is frustrating to see it on sale elsewhere in Europe, but unfortunately I can't do nowt about it.

    Guten Tag,

    unser Logistikzentrum hat den unten stehenden Artikel soeben verschickt!
    1 Civilization IV EUR 47,90 1 EUR 47,90

    Meaning:
    Hello,
    our Logistics Center just sent this Article
    1 Civilization IV EUR 47,90 1 EUR 47,90

    Came yesterday...so I guess Civ will be here around afternoon today or tomorrow :D
    4th of Nov. seems to be a bit inaccurate.

    Anyone surprised that Germans invented the term "schadenfreude" ... ?

    Well, you could send it to someone else for, uh, safekeeping...
