    Finally. Tired of trying to buy games from other EU members countries and to be automatically redirected to the one I am in. Effing scumbags...

    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    And forget about sales there? HAHA right, russian market is way too big for corporate greed to ignore. They just wont block it the same they are now, probably doing something else, bypassing the rule.
