Geez...you give us the boomshell the forget to tell us where to go for shelter :D I've been tossing around the idea of W III but getting a second copy (and I hope the original game of T2) I'd be interested. :) Ta and Good Hunting!

Hate to disappoint you guys but this is a dutch shop...actually it's just a store which is also selling online...(in the Netherlands)

And this version of Thief2 comes in jewelcase only (I think.) but that doesn't bother me. :D

Oh, it's so sad to read these threads... in Germany there's no problem to get Thief 1 or Thief 2... but that's only the german version. In Dezember Thief 1 was also on a CD of a Magazine. :eek:

It might be...as I would have no idea how to pay him, except maybe sending cash by mail..

Anyway, I am not yet sure what's the deal with this store. They state in the their FAQ section that if a product is not available they will order it (with no extra expenses). However T2 being an old game, I dunno if they actually can order it??? This is what I must find out first. Gonna call them on monday.

Xcom? I cannot believe you haven’t T2 yet…shame on you :D I’m not sure which country the swamps are located but why don’t you try eBay? Here, I’ve done a search for Thief on the US site and here’s the results (http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?MfcISAPICommand=GetResult&query=thief&categoryid=&ht=1&category4=11047&SortProperty=MetaEndSort&BasicSearch=) Quite a few! If your not from the US, eBay has many international sites...I've brought tons of stuff cheap from the UK site!

Ah, I guess you’re from the Netherlands....oh well I’ve just done a search on the Dutch site of eBay…no luck I’m afraid :(

I played the demo, does that count? :D
Seriously, I really don't have a good excuse for myself. Frankly, I don't even remember why I didn't buy it years ago.
As for purchasing from eBay...I dunno. I am kinda old fashioned "customer". If I buy something from american site, for example, whom am I gonna call if a product happens to be broken or something? It's far more easier for me to buy games in local stores.. Then, in such situation I can call them (travel there if necessary) and kick some butt..:D

to purchase it sometime...I'll just go down to Fry's Electronics as they are a large chain and have many goodies for purchase for computer/electronics and lots of games for all modes :) etc. or just one of my other game store sources for on-line. I just personally would rather not to do business with eBay...I'm sure in many ways some ppl have had good success with them (?) I just would rather go elsewhere .... but again thanks for your lead anyway :) Ta and Good Hunting!
