German Appstore...-.-

I hate the German Appstore.

Each app is much, much later published, and some, such as 1 vs. 100, Deal or No Deal, Jeopardy did not.
Mass Effect, Family Guy, and others are still not published in Germany ... Man, it sucks.

I'm sorry if I let my frustrations out, but somewhere I had to do.

Unfortunately I know also that the Appstore not for the lack of publication may be of some games. For example, I have learned from Gameloft that 1 vs. 100 here in Germany and did not hardly matters. Schade eigentlich. Deal or No Deal but probably will not be published here.

I'm German and anybody, who finds mistakes in my posts is allowed to keep them

I buy on the Netherlands store and some things are really strange. I was eargerly waiting for The Oregon trail to be released, searching for it every other day since april, and the research always returned with some crappy travel guide.

Two days ago I just looked at gameloft's game list and here it was! Sneaky release or bad indexation in the database... can't say. I searched for it again, just to be sure, nothing. But now that I bought it, it shows in search results...

It seems some games are available, but you just can't access them

Wow. Oregon Trail is available in the german store. I can´t believe it. I looked for it weeks and weeks after it´s us release. But it never was there. Now I search for it and there it is. Funny is, they say 9th March as release date. And that is absolutely not true. Strange. Really strange.

So, one game less I miss in the german store.
