Really like visual novels and just finished The Pillars of Earth. Again such a shame that on many occurrences games only release in the American region and not Europe...

hi, i spoke last week with woodsy studios and can confirm they have no plans to release outside of USA.
i know we can change region buy $points and buy that way, but prefer uk release and if possible on disc.
maybe if enough ask they will issue UK/EU release

here's the actual response

hi steve, right now, we're only planning NA releases for the console version but we're available on pc/steam in other regions.

Its PEGI why alot of games dont reach us the fees they charge are ridicules (can run into thosands of $) compared to ESRB who I believe have no charge for digital only release.

As for the game like the review says the story is pretty decent here and that should be the main factor with a visual novel. The graphics are what you would expect from a VN which uses the japanese template and sure the travling between sceens visualls are rubbish so the 2.5 rating I feel is a bit harsh as like I said its all about the story with these games.

...herself has a carefree attitude which sees her sleeping with people..., getting drunk and fighting in the streets, which are blatantly unlikeable traits
LOL...sounds like an ex-girlfriend of mine! roll

Thanks Megan!

Looks like we're left with the "alternate" method.
Not great!

We can all argue is possible to change region and buy points but its clearly not intended and MS are making it harder by not letting redeem points or buy the game without the use of a VPN or other shenanigans...

And there's no way out of switching region on the actual console to download the game since it wont appear on the list of ready to install. I wonder if they'll start limiting the number of changes per year like they do with home console.

They make a region free console bit sooo many of these digital releases are released in 1 or 2 countries. Why can't I buy with my credit card/ms account money? You can do it on WP. Change my country and then have to buy that country's Ms points and have an address its abit dumb. I just won't bother It's such a pain in the arse to do every other week. Could they not of made it abit simpler?
