I bought the British magazine "PC Gamer" (mis-spelled as "PC Gamers" on http://www.camelot-europe.com/ ) which was supposed to have the client. It set me back around �15, and eventually I found that said software was only in the DVD version (which seemed to be sold out at our shop, unsurprisingly). It would have been kind of nifty if the website had mentioned this minor detail. On the bright side, I got to read lots of other fluff about upcoming games. I can't believe there can be market for all those games ... but then again, competition will bring out the best in some people. In others, it only brings in more marketing.
I really wonder if the French company is better at handling foreign credit cards than the American. It would be sad if they were not, given that the great majority of the world's credit cards are foreign to them ... still, I guess I should have another fad ready just in case.
