That's the SECOND real hardcore shmup for American market only! And we never got Splash Tetris as well as some free games as well. WHY FOR FOCK SAKE?!

Sweet, I'm getting this on day one. But there should be no reason why Europe should be snubbed.

europeans get the shaft again. I mean we only pay the most and wait the longest. We deserve all these drawbacks. <sarcasm>

THE GAME IS COMING TO EUROPE as well. From Gamerscoreblog:
"Triggerheart Exelica will be available worldwide for 800 Microsoft Points and is rated E10+ by the ESRB."

So there you have it. Why Kudgel insisted to use the US-prefix in front of the Marketplace I don't understand. It's almost certain that will lead to misunderstandings. Or Kudgel was misinformed, who knows. The fact stand though, Triggerheart will be available worldwide (excluding Korea, I assume).

    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)
