When is the European release date? Wednesday, August 24, 2005 doublefine.com announced that the European version is done but no release date was given. For over three years I've been waiting for the game and now I'm about to explode. :firemad:

There! You see? The European version of Psychonauts is DONE and we are HOLDING IT IN OUR MORTAL HANDS. This should be all the proof you need. If we weren't actually done with the European version then we would not be able to take these pictures. Unless I had Photoshop. Or, some other, random CDs.

True, some of these people in the photos are mannequins. But most of them are real. There's Malena on the left, who had to coordinate this whole thing. And then there's Caroline, Jan, and Christophe, from the localization company Babel Media. Then there is some sort of super-attractive male model in an orange shirt who must have stumbled into the photograph by accident. Then there's our very own Lance, and Sébastien from Babel, and then our home-grown testers Bert and Steven (Hello! Steven! Camera's over this way! Yoo-hoo!) and finally, the formerly-English Dave Dixon, with an entire hard drive full of Psychonauts in his hands. Man, that must be heavy. Haha! Oh wait, I thought that was going to be funny when I typed it. Dang.

Not pictured here are Perry and Minh, the testers who had to go home early because we made them cry. And Wilson. Where the hell is Wilson? And Nathan, Raz, and Scott, who had to repaint all of those textures with the words in them. Also not pictured: Tom Cruise, Benjamin Franklin, Cher, and Moses.

Anyway, thanks to all the people at Babel for doing such a great job translating, recording, editing, and testing our game! Everybody else in Europe, please begin uninstalling your pirated copies now

This was released August 24, 2005. Your store may just be getting it now.

I asked my store if it's here already but they said it's not. I doubt it has shipped yet. I haven't seen any reviews and I don't know anyone who has it here. Anyone from Europe knows better? :/ ... or anyone from anywhere?

I'm from Oklahoma. Which is not in Europe, as everyone here will tell you. It's a proven fact. Oklahoma is not in Europe.

BUT. Maybe you can try ordering online? I don't know if it can be sent from overseas, and there just might not be anyone over there with it yet...

Reviews are easy enough to find. What kind did you want?

It's not that I can't find any reviews. What I meant was no Finnish (where I live and which btw is in Europe) reviews yet and that's why I thought it hasn't reached us yet.

And I don't like ordering stuff online. I'm not comfortable with the concept that you cannot see or touch what you're buying (sounds pervert doesn't it).

Finland is in Europe??? I thought it was near Tibet.

Oh, you mean reviews from people who didn't buy it here...

Well, I'm not sure what you should do. And if you don't want to order it online, which makes perfect sense. things go wrong all the time, the only other chance you have is a brick and mortar store.

AND since no stores are selling at as far as you can tell, that is impossible. Maybe you have people over here in the States who are willing to buy it and mail it to you? Drastic, and you would REALLY need to get a trustworthy person...
Threaten someone?

Why don't you just get some rich person to buy it for you after you kidnap their snobby daughter ~ classic Darth_Ave evil plot~

How much you wanna bet that doesn't work? Rich guys always have super powers. Heck, guys with GOVERNMENT FUNDING always have powers...

So now I asked my game store to order it for me and let me know when it's here. I just hope it doesn't take too long.

Should I return the rich person's daughter now?

Well, yeah. She probably misses her bag of money very much.

I didn't know stores ordered for people. How nice. <3
