          Yup, it's working. Thanks again ^^

          Just a thought, but Isn't 20 bucks too high for a first title?

              I'd say $20 is typically considered to be value-priced.

                I guess you are right, it's just more expensive here because of monetary conversion issues :2

                I gave my copy to my friend and I will buy another one to me xD

                  I bought this (Got the pre-order bonus Killing Floor character)

                  Great game, really shows off what can be done in the UDK

                      It was a £13 pre-order for the boxed copy on Amazon - I'd say that was pretty reasonable.

                          bought it for $20, b/c I forgot to get it like I planned pre-order, hah. Great game, altho I'm just past the intro/1st level.
