kimvidard: Leroux: Digital version (English) on GamersGate
If you saw the game cheaper somewhere else, I will go on a limb here and say it was on sale, or discounted... So not exactly comparable.
, about $13.50 (unless it's cheaper for US customers) Retail on Amazon.de
, about $13.50, (original voiceovers) US Retail on Amazon.com
, was $9.99, now $6.25.
So, yeah, except for the US retail the difference is not that significant and all of these probably have some kind of DRM or copy protection on them (and I'd stay clear of anything that GamersGate put SecuRom on). And the GOG version includes the soundtrack,
I think it depends on your perspective. If you love adventure games, haven't played this one yet and are not able to speak German, it's probably a good offer (also considering the Steam version costs nearly twice as much for Europeans). On the other hand, the absence of the German version really devalues the offer for the German fanbase familiar with the original, and from what I hear, only Germans are interested in playing German adventure games. ;)
Yeah, I think I can agree with that :)
And I use GamersGate quite a bit so I am not all surprised that they would have a good price. For amazon, well, shipping will put the price over GOG's offer so in the end we are back to what service we prefer, and to get rid of DRM, and get the extra goodies, I'll take the GOG offer.
BTW, I am french, so I must be the odd one out for liking the whispering word :)
I just feel that 15$ is fine going forward, I'll keep an eye on what the add, hopefully, we get some slipper hits added. They certainly started by getting Cryostasis in the catalog.
