  1. Damn,I’m waiting for this game since 2003.I saw all trailers and I can’t wait to try this stakegun thing.Anybody know if they are planing to release a demo?Daniel Garner look really badass on this picture…

  2. original? PK gold is just pk 1.61 with both the base game and BooH, just a combination pack for pple who dont already have the base game

  3. i read on gotfrag that the gold edition was to be sold only on america, while the black edition is for us europeans; dunno if it´s true tho..

  4. i just joined the league. and i am german but it is a great idea 2 give “not german” players the oppertunity to become part of the league.
    nice idea.

  5. err … i read the rules, and there is no mention that you are not allowed if you are from another country.
    i doubt that giga will pay your flight to germany if someone manages to qualify, but other than that i think even foreigners can attend at the lan finals.

  6. I wouldn\’t recommend the gigaliga.

    You aren\’t allowed to play, if you are from another Country, where the spoken language isn\’t german.
    The Website-Servers are often not available, because of too much traffic.
    The League System is unbalanced and not intuitive.
