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.

I don't think they don't even have chip cards in the US, last time I was there they were still accepting swipe credit cards. You might as well be talking Greek to them.

It's quite strange how much difference there is between Europe and the US where payments are concerned. When I first went to the US (Breckenridge) on vacation (1993, IIRC), I was absolutely amazed at the fact you could just pay anywhere with a credit card. We got lunch in a bar on top of the mountain, and you could just pay with your credit card. Europe at the time was absolutely wallowing in CC misery—you could barely pay anywhere with them.

But on the flipside, it's now the year 2012, and everyone in the US still writes fucking checks. CHECKS! Holland stopped using checks literally twenty years ago. You can't even GET them anymore.

Like I said, weird.

And for our German friend, I gotta say that your country was by far the most CC unfriendly one I've experienced. I worked in Berlin and Munchen for awhile, and went out to dinner with a colleague. At the end I put down a Mastercard, and the waitress shakes her head. Okay. So I put down a Visa. Again, she shakes her head. Okay... Check? No. So what DO you accept then?

Cash only.

This was in 1999. I'm not talking like 1972 or something. 19 fucking 99, and this restaurant was CASH ONLY. I wound up walking around for an hour trying to find an ATM that would take my Dutch bank card and would give me money so I could go pay the fucking CASH ONLY restaurant...

I've been in areas of Germany including Munich/Munchen in the last year or so -- they are more CC friendly nowadays compared to your account, though the supermarkets still don't take it. Most restaurants would accept with some hassle (and minimum purchase of 10 euro). Just make sure it's a chip card or you're out of luck. I usually made sure to have some cash with me for things like the ferry across the Bodensee and a nightcap at the hotel bar plus assorted touristy things if I had a chance on a weekend (since needed to stay the Saturday anyway).
