Anno 1404 ideas?
hey toggers, I am keen to get the Anno 1404 bundle (including Venice expansion). The steam price hasn't varied in months by the looks of it from around US$50. Ubisoft are completely frickin mad for trying to sell it for AU$140 from their Aust based website!
A couple of Australian distributors (games warehouse, Dungeon Crawl) seem to offer a reasonable price for the expansion, but they don't have the original or the bundle. EB has it apparently still on their system at AU$70 or so, but no stock in the 2 stores I visited.
I have heard that Ubisoft released a patch (1.1) for the retail version which removes the DRM (apparently the downloaded versions still have it?).
My question basically is, does anyone know anywhere else to get a retail copy or should I just bite the digital bulltet and get through Steam?
If I buy through a Thai distributor for example, will it work ok in Aust?
