Speaking as a Britfag: I went to Asutralia for a month. Not a single g'day came my way at all. Should I have been released or disappointed?

@Dril

Released? I meant pleased. Sigh.

@Dril Proud but whimsically nostalgic, like a parent whose child has finally stopped lisping. (Seriously though, could've just been bad luck. Lot of us still saying it around, but mostly to mates since it's a fairly informal greeting.)

@Transientmind I still use the stereotypical "mate" a lot, if that counts for anything. I also swear a lot? Though so can British people. Hrm.

Oooh, we get to find out who's going to sell us access to playing a game on foreign servers?

*yawn*

Wake us when there's REAL news, like opening actual servers here, instead of just knowing who's getting the rights to collect a fat retail mark-up. Aussies play loads of games that don't get released here. When it comes to MMOs, distributors are about as useful as lube. They might make life easier, but if you know what you're doing, or if you're determined or enthusiastic enough, you really don't need them.

@Transientmind Nary a truer thing has been said. Give us Oceanic servers!

Just so you know, QVS are not really "a renowned publisher". I've never heard of them, and looking at their website, their main business seems to be shovelling out crappy little budget games. This is not really a partnership that is going to raise RIFT's profile.

"Aussies alike will be saying g'day"

as an Australian I really hope this isn't all what you yanks think of us!

btw no one says G'day and Kiwis have never said it in movies!
