It was suppose to, but Funcom is behind schedule.

Retail stores were suppose to release stuff today, but the game hasn't actually been shipped.

Well, I've been playing a bit of Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.
I thought at first that it's kind of a Resident Evil style game, but it seems to be a mostly adventure game with stealth and action elements.
Anyway it's interesting and kind of creepy. You might encounter not very lovely things like hanging people or sprays of blood, and those elements can effect your sanity. If you develop a mental condition, the visuals, audio and controls might get messed up.

That sounds like a complete ripp-off of Eternal Darkness

Beautiful graphics, though - on Dreamfall, I mean. Lovely.

Fireball2K, I checked with people who played Dreamfall on PC, and one guy posted this:

"Running Dell Latitude D800

Intel Centrino 1.4GHZ
1 GB of RAM
GEForce 4200 GO (64 MEG)

Running at 1024x763 and high quality.

The only issues I've had are slight stuttering during the in game cinematics and water not always rendering properly or at all. Hasn't been a big deal so far."
Seems like your card will do.

ChoasFish: What do you mean, better graphics than the ones in the trailers? If you mean resolution, Anti-Aliasing performance, then yes. If you mean, upgraded textures, facial animations, etc, then no.

That's still about $25 more expensive than the rest of the world.

Actually, the Lim. Ed. is 25$ more than the regular price. So if you are going to spend an extra 25$, try to get that.

What is that in punts? Or euros, euros work too.

The game is being developed by a printed RPG game creator!?

It's Eden Games: http://www.eden-studios.fr/
the website of tothegame has it wrong

A couple fo interesting people that work for Eden:
* Benoit Boucher: toy commander, time commando
* Alexis Madinier: QA for LBA, TC, LBA2

Yes.
But they got the money by saleing the rights, not by getting any revenue from the films "success".

Also, I dont think ANY of Uwe Bolls films has ever made any money.
Which kinda suggests he is being manipulated and used as a way for something rather dodgy.
