A game about Nazis with everything Nazi censored out is like being served an empty plate and calling it a meal.

Too bad I don't own an I7 and stuck with an AMD phenom II. EA says i7 is needed for constant fps of 60

So if you replace swastikas with some other sharp edged symbol the game is suddenly bad.

 

in that case, I'd say it was a bad game to start with.

Don't be so strict, why deny yourself this game? Your Phenom II is more than enough, i'm sure. I'd take these new-fangled PC requirements with a hefty dollop of salt...PS4 and X1 come out and suddenly every PC game needs HAL 9000-like processing acumen to run at "60fps".

You're right, that kind of visual detail doesn't really affect gameplay, but alexander makes a fair point too. It's like Homefront using Koreans instead of the original China-based invasion. Sure, would not have changed the game, but would have made for a more plausible and impactful scenario.

Steamworks.

 

Valve have been updating it in recent months to block trading of restricted games through the gift system etc. When you buy the game in Austria/Germany you automatically buy the censored version. People worked around that over the years by using VPN/gifting, but they're cracking down on it and now you can't add the games to your account never mind play them.

Nothing banned ATM, I'm in Germany, I couldn't buy Return To The Castle Wolfenstein since it is banned in Germany, so friend from Poland buy it and send as gift over Steam, works perfect fine :p

How long ago did that happen?

 

Some of the changes have been very recent.

I will add to this: Legally, you may not import any items bearing the Nazi Swastika or related imagery into Germany.  That includes digital.

Maybe it's not retroactive? It's certainly affecting newer titles though:

The flags are visible for each title on the database so you can check and see if trading will be possible with the new Wolf game. Enjoy it while it lasts though because they are cracking down on it, particularly for those who abuse the regional price differences and/or sell them elsewhere.

I thought Germany was finally softening on this stuff regarding games and nazism or rather, gore in general.

Nothing new though, every previous Wolfenstein had it :) In a way, it wouldnt be Wolfenstein without the german filter.

WTF is with developers and patches on these new consoles? At this size I think you're having a laugh calling it a patch...
