More Project Eternity Goals

The Kickstarter for Project Eternity announces further goals for Obsidian Entertainment's upcoming role-playing game. With the fundraiser passing the 50,000 backer plateau, they reveal a new backer reward: "a new dungeon experience" for the game called The Endless Paths of Od Nua. They also reveal a new $2.4 million stretch goal as well as new add-on aspects of the campaign, including the ability for backers to separately add an early access beta code or a digital strategy guide to their reward package.

Yeah, what you describe is basically why I don't even bother getting a credit card... If you think THAT is bad, and Munich is a pretty big tourist center, wait till you visit the outskirts of Berlin. You will find EC/Giro everywhere even the postal service ringing at your door has a EC terminal, but NOBODY will take your credit card. Not even the ATM's. Because most ATM's are only for EC/Giro.

I think in Germany you really gotta realize.. it is dominated by EC Card or cash, when I say "i don't need anything else" you can believe this. Since around 2006 the spread for EC acceptance is NEARLY total. But if you try paying with any non-german card... you are stranded. Always ask what they accept before ordering. Is the only thing I can tell you. It's something even Germans learn the hard-way ;p

It is certainly not a good system for tourists though

No, it certainly wasn't!

I imagine after the Euro in 2002 it became a lot easier, since most European countries (if not all of them) use Giro/EC or whatever local equivalent, and since you're paying in Euros, it's likely you can use those everywhere, even in other European countries.

Don't worry, though, I still love Germany.
(God, I miss German food.)
