I would have grabbed it except for Microsoft's $#^@$% up website.
For some reason I had to go through the LiveID signup twice, entering the exact same information before it would acknowledge it and send the verification email.
Then when I've verified myself, I click on the link to buy the game and proceed to checkout - only to be told I should sign up for XBOX Live, even though I'm trying to log in with my newly acquired LiveID - and indeed have not logged out from when I verified myself.
When I try to log in it tells me there is a problem with logging me out!
Cleared the caches, run CCleaner, try IE on both the PC and in a VM - same sh!t. Clear everything again, reboot and try for one last time.
An hour after I started this fiasco it finally acknowledges that I can log in, so off I go to the checkout to pay for it........only to find their #%[email protected]&^%@%^
website now doesn't like the country I'm in! ie. Marketplace doesn't like Australia even though it's in the list of countries that can use the download client.How F***ING hard would it have been to announce it's not available for download in my country right on the F***ING first web page?
I really, really hope that someone drops a tactical nuke on Redmond - collateral damage be damned!
