I am curious to see exactly HOW much freedom we will have in this game.  Could it be Bethesda Game level freedom?  That would be mighty interesting.  Probably not THAT free though as it sounds like this is going to be a very story intensive game so it will probably play a bit more like a good BioWare game than a Bethesda game, which is fine, but its interesting to speculate about.

I'm actually a bit scared. This might be a pointless thing but... the price tag concerns me.

I think the game costs 30 bucks now. Which is obviously a decent price but... how much features will this game to have to be on the level with the best of AAA games ?

The cheapest version is $59.99 for the basic game aka the "Standard Version".  Pretty standard even for an AAA title.  The "Unsanctioned Version" is $69.99 and the "Blood Moon Edition" is $89.99.

Yeah, I just went to GOG myself and I'm finding the prices Zephyr is finding. Maybe it's measured on your end in whatever Peruvian currency you have, Highwayman? Super pesorupees.

If I could find that price I would hop on it right now.  lol  Sadly I cannot.  GOG is what I was looking at too.

Yeah there must be something up with the currency translator...or whatever they call it.  lol

That is very strange.  This is how it is for Americans:

When exactly did you obtain your GOG copy ? I can only guess that's a "seniority" discount since I bought my copy two years ago ?

Wesp ? Barabbah ? Anyone ?

I haven't obtained a copy just yet.  Those are the prices for when I decide to do so.

I meant when exactly did you get your BL1 copy, maybe there was a discount attached to that ? Can't really imagine though that they would just give you 50% discount for having a fifteen year old game.

Most probably regional pricing. GOG implemented this practice recently canceling another one of it's foundation principals. Till recently GOG paid the deference but with games like Bloodlines 2 this is no longer possible I suppose. In fact the price in Europe is the same as USA but in euros and I suppose for UK is the same but in pounds which makes UK users most fucked up.
