Note: How it says (PDT), meaning Pacific Daylight Time, which is an American Timezone, which means it will come out on the 19th and not the 20th.

And there updating on Monday the 17th.

in the KI Home Page you will see a cloumn above the one you just clicked. It explains that April 20th JP time is April 19th here in the US.... or somethihng like that.

Emerje:
No, they didn't specify the time zone in that news post, it simply said April 20th. Being on the US website that would be April 20th PDT, a mistake. They corrected it by changing it to April 19th PDT.

Lordofgodz is an idiot
# Apr 16 2006 at 3:49 AM Rating: Default
I've got a beef with Lordofgodz. Although my approach may appear a bit pedantic, by setting some generative point of view against a structural-taxonomical point of view or vice versa, I intend to argue that Lordofgodz is too appalling to read the writing on the wall. This writing warns that my cause is to review the basic issues at the root of the debate. I call upon men and women from all walks of life to support my cause with their life-affirming eloquence and indomitable spirit of human decency and moral righteousness. Only then will the whole world realize that the right thing to do in this case is determined by various vectors of forces in an endless multidimensional tug-of-war involving ropes leading out in many directions. In fact, I have said that to Lordofgodz on many occasions and I will keep on saying it until he stops trying to usher in the beginning of a muzzy-headed new era of insurrectionism. According to Lordofgodz's distortions, distractions, and outright deceptions, polyloquent dolts are easily housebroken. Fortunately, most of the people who are seriously interested in preserving our civilization know that the reality is that Lordofgodz is known for walking into crowded rooms and telling everyone there that he can make all of our problems go away merely by sprinkling some sort of magic pink pixie dust over everything that he considers uneducated or hotheaded. Try, if you can, to concoct a statement better calculated to show how laughable Lordofgodz is. You can't do it. Not only that, but he can fool some of the people all of the time. He can fool all of the people some of the time. But Lordofgodz can't fool all of the people all of the time.

Behold what a nice, thick, fat lie it is when Lordofgodz denies ever having strived to legitimize the fear and hatred of the privileged for the oppressed. I enjoy the great diversity of humankind, in our food, our dress, our music, our literature, and our forms of spiritual expression. What I don't enjoy are Lordofgodz's pea-brained screeds which lower our standard of living. His artifices represent a backward step of hundreds of years, a backward step into a chasm with no bottom save the endless darkness of death. If you spot a bumper sticker that reads, "As conscious, sentient beings aware of our actions and capable of response, we must stop Lordofgodz's encroachments on our heritage," you're probably looking at my car. Although others may disagree with that claim, few would dispute that if you read between the lines of Lordofgodz's litanies, you'll certainly find that we must truly pursue virtue and knowledge. Does that sound extremist? Is it too unreasonable for you? I'm sorry if it seems that way, but that's life.

Perhaps one day we will live in a world where good people are not troubled by fear of tasteless manipulators of the public mind. Until that day arrives, however, we must spread the word that Lordofgodz contends that deconstructionism is a noble goal. Sounds rather pathological, doesn't it? Well, that's Lordofgodz for you. He is licentious, uncivilized, pugnacious, misguided, counter-productive, and disreputable. Need I go on? Will someone please explain to me what it is in our lives that can possibly make someone subordinate principles of fairness to less admirable criteria? Because I certainly have no idea. Lordofgodz views mercantalism as a succedaneous religion that authorizes him to bribe the parasitic with the earnings of the productive, and every intellectually honest person knows it.

Most of you reading this letter have your hearts in the right place. Now follow your hearts with actions. Lordofgodz's ebullitions are more than just peevish. They're a revolt against nature. Although the dialectics of mischievous praxis will use organized violence to suppress opposition one day, Lordofgodz is decidedly up to something. I don't know exactly what, but the wisdom that comes from maturation of the spirit, mind, and body will some day prevail over the idiocy of his objectives. As long as I live, I will be shouting this truth from rooftops and doing everything I can to draw a picture of what we conceive of under the word "orbiculatoelliptical". I have no problem with the manifestly obvious statement that the consequences of his scabrous ploys, particularly from a moral point of view, are not favorable. I have no problem with the idea that he would swear on a stack of Bibles that honor counts for nothing. And I have no problem with the special privileges occasionally granted to virulent doomsday prophets. What I do have a problem with are his smarmy, demented prevarications.

Some people think it's a bit extreme of me to stand as a witness in the divine court of the eternal judge and proclaim that Lordofgodz refuses to do anything for himself -- a bit over the top, perhaps. Well, what I ought to remind such people is that Lordofgodz's disloyal crusades besmirch the memory of some genuine historic figures. Lordofgodz then blames us for that. Now there's a prizewinning example of psychological projection if I've ever seen one. In his "compromises", anarchism is witting and unremitting, negligent and treasonous. He revels in it, rolls in it, and uses it to commit confrontational, in-your-face acts of violence, intimidation, and incivility. Lordofgodz's anecdotes are a sink-pit of degeneracy, corruption, and ugliness. I don't think anyone questions that. But did you know that his secret agents suspect that the masses are unconscionable and unfit for citizenship? Do you ever get the feeling that Lordofgodz's stratagems are founded on lies? Well, you should, because Lordofgodz's fibs are a ticking time bomb, set to pooh-pooh the reams of solid evidence pointing to the existence and operation of an addlepated coterie of faddism. And here, I contend, lies a clue to the intellectual vacuum so gapingly apparent in Lordofgodz's ideologies. All of this once again proves the old saying that Lordofgodz's manuscripts are entirely acrimonious, regardless of the way, shape, or form in which he presents them.

Good news, the activation was bumped up a day!

"* "Treasures of Aht Urhgan" content will be active simultaneously in all regions from April 19, 2006 (PDT). You will not be able to access the "Treasures of Aht Urhgan" content until then."

The 20th in Japan would be the 19th in the other half of the world. Looks like S-E posted the wrong date on the site.

Dear SE:
# Apr 13 2006 at 3:45 PM Rating: Default
I've tried to keep quiet, but I just can't hold it in any longer. I have to tell everyone that I hate Square Enix's constant misuse of historical analogies. Let's get down to brass tacks: What we're involved in with Square Enix is not a game. It's the most serious possible business, and every serious person -- every person with any shred of a sense of responsibility -- must concern himself with it. Square Enix's reasoning is circular and therefore invalid. In other words, it always begins an argument with its conclusion (e.g., that its biases enhance performance standards, productivity, and competitiveness) and therefore -- not surprisingly -- it always arrives at that very conclusion.

A recent fact-finder's report revealed that no reasonable person would deny that Square Enix's fulminations are as flagitious as they are an insult to human intelligence. That's the current situation, and if you have any doubt about the reality of it, then you haven't been paying close enough attention to what's been happening in the world. As another disquieting tidbit, the following must be stated: If Square Enix's paroxysms get any more intellectually challenged, I expect they'll grow legs and attack me in my sleep.

I am reminded of the quote, "Nobody seems to realize that each liberated mind that examines all of the evidence is a break in the chains that bind us all." This comment is not as stubborn as it seems because I cannot believe how many actual, physical, breathing, thinking people have fallen for Square Enix's subterfuge. I'm completely stunned. Although I can no more change the past than see the future, it's safe to say that you, of course, now need some hard evidence that an unholy alliance of covinous antagonists and stingy monomaniacs has been instrumental in devising increasingly blockish ways to impose a "glass ceiling" that limits our opportunities for promotions in most jobs. Well, how about this for evidence: It may seem difficult at first to ratchet up our level of understanding. It is. But I recommend paying close attention to the praxeological method developed by the economist Ludwig von Mises and using it as a technique to comment on a phenomenon that has and will continue to perpetrate acts of the most mendacious character. The praxeological method is useful in this context because it employs praxeology, the general science of human action, to explain why Square Enix insists that trees cause more pollution than automobiles do. This fraud, this lie, is just one among the thousands they perpetrates. I receive a great deal of correspondence from people all over the world. And one of the things that impresses me about it is the massive number of people who realize that I oppose Square Enix's exegeses because they are lame-brained. I oppose them because they are debauched. And I oppose them because they will give voice, in a totally emotional and non-rational way, to Square Enix's deep-rooted love of metagrobolism in the coming days.

It will be objected, to be sure, that Square Enix doesn't honestly want to supply the chains that bind the individual to notions of self-loathing and unworthiness. At first glance, this may seem to be true, but when you think about it further, you'll indubitably conclude that it has convinced a lot of people that dictatorial beggars are inherently good, sensitive, creative, and inoffensive. One must pause in admiration at this triumph of media manipulation. Square Enix says that it should change the course of history because "it's the right thing to do". That's its unvarying story, and it's a lie: an extremely wily and sexist lie. Unfortunately, it's a lie that is accepted unquestioningly, uncritically, by Square Enix's comrades.

Now that I've had time to think hard about Square Enix's excuses, my only question is this: Why? Why spew forth ignorance and prejudice? Whatever the answer, if Square Enix truly wanted to be helpful, it wouldn't take the focus off the real issues. Verily, when a friend wants to drive inebriated, you try to stop him. Well, Square Enix is drunk with power, which is why we must disabuse it of the notion that every featherless biped, regardless of intelligence, personal achievement, moral character, sense of responsibility, or sanity, should be given the power to make bigotry respectable.

You may not be aware of this, but we wouldn't currently have a problem with materialism if it weren't for Square Enix. Although it created the problem, aggravated the problem, and escalated the problem, Square Enix insists that it can solve the problem if we just grant it more power. How naïve does it think we are? Truly, there are few certainties in life. I have counted only three: death, taxes, and Square Enix announcing some disorderly thing every few weeks. Square Enix knows how to lie. It's too bad it doesn't yet understand the ramifications of lying.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it true that the communicative efficacy of Square Enix's connection with bumptious lounge lizards will cause feeble-minded hooligans to popularize a genre of music whose graphic lyrics explicitly urge grungy, ornery fanatics to introduce changes without testing them first by the end of the decade? I shall not argue that Square Enix's newsgroup postings are an authentic map of its plan to prevent me from sleeping soundly at night. Read them and see for yourself.

When I say that the truth is not meant to be warm and fuzzy, I don't just mean that it wants to create new (and reinforce existing) prejudices and misconceptions, that it wants to inflict untold misery, suffering, and distress, or that it wants to make me the target of a constant, consistent, systematic, sustained campaign of attacks. Sure, Square Enix doubtlessly wants all that, but it also wants much more. It wants to hijack the word "disproportionateness" and use it to write off whole sections of society. When I hear Square Enix say that it has the trappings of deity, I have to wonder about it. Is it absolutely shabby? Is it simply being raving? Or is it merely embracing a delusion in which it must believe in order to continue believing in itself? I once asked Square Enix that question -- I am still waiting for an answer. In the meantime, let me point out that my current plan is to improve the physical and spiritual quality of life for the population at present and for those yet to come. Yes, it will draw upon the most powerful fires of Hell to tear that plan asunder, but some people don't seem to mind that it likes to shackle us with the chains of ageism. What a sophomoric world we live in!

Think about how easy it's become for the worst types of cacodemonic mythomaniacs I've ever seen to rule with an iron fist. If you think about it you'll see that Square Enix's cankered bons mots are merely a distraction. They're just something to generate more op-ed pieces, more news conferences for media talking heads, and more punditry from people like me. Meanwhile, Square Enix's surrogates are continuing their quiet work of advancing Square Enix's real goal, which is to revive an arcadian past that never existed. Square Enix says that it is cunctipotent. You know, I don't think I have heard a less factually based statement in my entire life. Be careful not to be charmed by Square Enix's philosophies. All they do is impede the free flow of information.

One does not have to brainwash the masses into submission in order to keep Square Enix's subalterns at bay. It is a witless person who believes otherwise. I want to draw two important conclusions from this. The first is that even if Square Enix is not conscious of the inner reason for its ideas, much of the noise made on its behalf is generated by batty, peremptory shirkers who seem to have nothing better to do with their time, and the second is that I welcome its comments. However, it needs to realize that if you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem. Square Enix has no great love of democracy or egalitarianism. That should serve as the final, ultimate, irrefutable proof that it's quite easy for it to declaim my proposals. But when is Square Enix going to provide an alternative proposal of its own? You know the answer, don't you? You probably also know that I have frequently criticized Square Enix's unspoken plan to implement a wild parody of justice called "Square Enix-ism". Square Enix usually addresses my criticisms by accusing me of resistentialism, narcissism, child molestation, and halitosis. It hopes that by delegitimizing me this way, no one will listen to me when I say that it is hardly surprising that it wants to pour a few drops of wormwood into our general enthusiasm. After all, this is the same hypocritical drongo whose ugly prattle informed us that we can stop negativism merely by permitting government officials entrée into private homes to search for unbalanced tyrants. Out of the vast number of devastating evils for which rummy hucksters are directly or indirectly responsible, I shall pick out only a single one which is most in keeping with the inner essence of Square Enix's inimical zingers: paternalism. Whatever should be true of statutory and often ephemeral enactments in human jurisprudence, the fact remains that Square Enix will probably respond to this letter just like it responds to all criticism. It will put me down as "intolerant" or "hectoring". That's its standard answer to everyone who says or writes anything about it except the most fawning praise. Finally, if this letter generates a response from someone of opposing viewpoints, I would hope that the author(s) concentrate on offering objections to my ideas while refraining from attacks on my person or my intelligence. I've gotten enough of that already from Square Enix.

So, lordofgodz, what was the original word that you subbed with "Square Enix" throughout the
text of your masterful work of cut-n'-paste?

(I felt that someone should reply to your stimulating monograph, but i don't know enough big words to make an intelligent reply, so I resorted to insult.)

To honor our nation's glorious mosaic of cultures and ethnicities, we need to begin with a frank acknowledgment of the basic humanness of each of us. And we must acknowledge that FlatulentChimp's buddies can conceive of nothing but prodigal defenses of his shallow philippics. Some background is in order: It's easy enough to hate FlatulentChimp any day of the week on general principles. But now I'll tell you about some very specific things that FlatulentChimp is up to, things that ought to make a real FlatulentChimp-hater out of you. First off, if it were up to him, schoolchildren would be taught reading, 'riting, and racism. He should learn to appreciate what he has instead of feeling so oppressed because he can't do everything he wants, every time he wants to.

FlatulentChimp wants us to believe that cultural tradition has never contributed a single thing to the advancement of knowledge or understanding. How stupid does he think we are? I can give you only my best estimate, made after long and anxious consideration, but I do not pose as an expert in these matters. I can say only that he says that his opinions represent the opinions of the majority -- or even a plurality. Yet he also wants to bring ugliness and nastiness into our lives. Am I the only one who sees the irony there? I ask because he is extremely wicked. In fact, let's see what my handy-dandy Wicked-O-Meter has to say about FlatulentChimp. Whoa! The needle is off the scale! It's a good thing I checked, because he claims to have turned over a new leaf shortly after getting caught trying to cause (or at least contribute to) a variety of social ills. This claim is an outright lie that is still being circulated by FlatulentChimp's comrades. The truth is that I'm sure FlatulentChimp wouldn't want me to eavesdrop on his secret conversations. So why does he want to overthrow all concepts of beauty and sublimity, of the noble and the good, and instead drag people down into the sphere of his own base nature? I've never gotten a clear and honest answer to that question from FlatulentChimp. But what is clear is that he needs to stop living in denial. He needs to wake up and realize that he just reported that his yawping peuplade is a benign and charitable agency. Do you think that that's merely sloppy reporting on FlatulentChimp's part? I don't. I think that it's a deliberate attempt to perpetuate inaccurate and dangerous beliefs about male-female relationships. There is no compelling moral or economic reason why FlatulentChimp should make our lives an endless treadmill of government interferences while providing few real benefits to our health and happiness, right? Right. Some people think I'm exaggerating when I say that his prognoses are uniformly riddled by an unbelievable degree of ignorance. But I'm not exaggerating; if anything, I'm understating the situation.

FlatulentChimp harbors a sense of entitlement and an expectation of success beyond reason. To pretend otherwise is nothing but hypocrisy and unwillingness to face the more unpleasant realities of life. He thinks it would be a great idea to humiliate, subjugate, and eventually eliminate everyone who wants to draw an accurate portrait of his ideological alignment. Even if we overlook the logistical impossibilities of such an idea, the underlying premise is still flawed. Whether you call it "priggism", "alarmism", or "statism", it is alive and well in FlatulentChimp's taradiddles. It's what convinced me that FlatulentChimp's minions are merely ciphers. FlatulentChimp is the one who decides whether or not to rip off everyone and his brother. FlatulentChimp is the one who gives out the orders to fill the air with recrimination and rancor. And FlatulentChimp is the one trying to conceal how some people are responsible and others are not. FlatulentChimp falls into the category of "not".

FlatulentChimp fervently believes that the rest of us are an inferior group of people, fit only to be enslaved, beaten, and butchered at the whim of our betters. This shows that he is not merely mistaken about one little fact among millions of facts but that FlatulentChimp's goal is to put an uppity spin on important issues. How piteous is that? How yellow-bellied? How pouty? His cronies are merely liars with charisma, by which I mean that his ideas are geared toward the continuation of social stratification under the rubric of "tradition". Funny, that was the same term that FlatulentChimp's drones once used to harvest what others have sown. To FlatulentChimp's mind, the sun rises just for him. So that means that he is entitled to foist the most poisonously false and destructive myths imaginable upon us, right? No, not right. The truth is that FlatulentChimp's desire to equip condescending bloodsuckers with flame throwers, hand grenades, and heat-seeking missiles is the chief sign that he's a paltry maggot. (The second sign is that FlatulentChimp feels obliged to blow the whole situation way out of proportion.)

I obviously dislike FlatulentChimp. Likes or dislikes, however, are irrelevant to observed facts, such as that the first lies that FlatulentChimp told us were relatively benign. Still, they have been progressing. And they will continue to progress until there is no more truth; his lies will grow until they blot out the sun. Continue to appease him, and FlatulentChimp will unequivocally saddle the economy with crippling debt. What do we owe him? Nothing, absolutely nothing. If FlatulentChimp claims otherwise, we have to stand firm and point out that if he were as bright as he thinks he is, he'd know that his histrionics will have consequences, intended and otherwise. That concept can be extended, mutatis mutandis, to the way that FlatulentChimp's cause is not glorious. It is not wonderful. It is not good.

It is of paramount importance not to let FlatulentChimp's adulators advertise "magical" diets and bogus weight-loss pills. But let's not quibble about that. You might say, "FlatulentChimp's vindictive press releases disgust me." Fine, I agree. But you won't find many of FlatulentChimp's compeers who will openly admit that they favor FlatulentChimp's schemes to bar people from partaking in activities that cannot be monitored and controlled. In fact, their actions are characterized by a plethora of rhetoric to the contrary. If you listen closely, though, you'll hear how carefully they cover up the fact that for those of us who make our living trying to protect our peace, privacy, and safety, it is important to consider that his hirelings are tools. Like a hammer or an axe, they are not inherently evil or destructive. The evil is in the force that manipulates them and uses them for destructive purposes. That evil is FlatulentChimp, who wants nothing less than to pursue a boisterous agenda under the guise of false concern for the environment, poverty, civil rights, or whatever. FlatulentChimp is obviously trying to procure explosive devices, gasoline, and detonators for use in an upcoming campaign of terror, and unless we act now, he'll undeniably succeed. At this point in the letter, I had planned to tell you that his deeds are an abomination. However, one of my colleagues pointed out that FlatulentChimp is sympathetic to sex-crazed causes of all stripes. Hence, I discarded the discourse I had previously prepared and substituted the following discussion, in which I argue that wherever you look, you'll see him enforcing intolerance in the name of tolerance. You'll see him suppressing freedom in the name of freedom. And you'll see him crushing diversity of opinion in the name of diversity.

Don't kid yourself: There are some basic biological realities of the world in which we live. These realities are doubtless regrettable, but they are unalterable. If FlatulentChimp finds them intolerable and unthinkable, the only thing that I can suggest is that he try to flag down a flying saucer and take passage for some other solar system, possibly one in which the residents are oblivious to the fact that I normally prefer to listen than to speak. I would, however, like to remind FlatulentChimp that this is not wild speculation. This is not a conspiracy theory. This is documented fact. The reservoir from which FlatulentChimp draws his encomiasts is primarily the masses of lackadaisical parvenus. This means, in particular, that if FlatulentChimp feels ridiculed by all the attention my letters are bringing him, then that's just too darn bad. His arrogance has brought this upon himself.

Regardless of whether we consider FlatulentChimp a lunatic, an evil aggressor, or whatever, his remonstrations are a house of mirrors. How are we to find the opening that leads to freedom? I don't pretend to know the answer, but I do know that on several occasions I have heard him state that the majority of misguided rotters are heroes, if not saints. I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a comment. What I consider far more important, though, is that if we let FlatulentChimp enact new laws forcing anyone who's not one of his bedfellows to live in an environment that can, at best, be described as contemptuously tolerant, then greed, corruption, and snobbism will characterize the government. Oppressive measures will be directed against citizens. And lies and deceit will be the stock-in-trade of the media and educational institutions. Do you ever get the feeling that I find FlatulentChimp's lack of depth and insight mind-boggling? Well, you should, because the first thing we need to do is to get FlatulentChimp to admit that he has a problem. He should be counseled to recite the following:

* I, FlatulentChimp, am a rebarbative, insidious libertine.
* I have been a participant in a giant scheme to lay down diktats that force me to live lower than dirt.
* I hereby admit my addiction to careerism. I ask for the strength and wisdom to fight this addiction.

Once FlatulentChimp realizes that he has a problem, maybe then he'll see that he will do everything in his power to hammer away at the characters of all those who will not help him appropriate sacred symbols for inane purposes. No wonder corruption is endemic to our society; we've all heard FlatulentChimp yammer and whine about how he's being scapegoated again, the poor dear. I can assure you that FlatulentChimp is entirely mistaken if he believes that he never engages in xenophobic, unconscionable, or malignant politics. Moreover, if everyone does his own, small part, together we can reinforce what is best in people.

There is a problem here. A very large, shameless, footling problem. FlatulentChimp says that we're supposed to shut up and smile when he says conniving things. But then he turns around and says that a book of his writings would be a good addition to the Bible. You know, you can't have it both ways, FlatulentChimp.

I want to tell FlatulentChimp where he can stick it. But first, let me pose an abstract question. What does FlatulentChimp hope to achieve by repeatedly applying his lips to the posteriors of negligent braggarts? I once asked FlatulentChimp that question -- I am still waiting for an answer. In the meantime, let me point out that every so often, you'll see FlatulentChimp lament, flog himself, cry mea culpa for seeking to take us over the edge of the abyss of fanaticism, and vow never again to be so horny. Sadly, he always reverts to his old behavior immediately afterwards, making me think that his primitive dream is starting to come true. Liberties are being killed by attrition. Boosterism is being installed by accretion. The only way that we can reverse these violent, subhuman trends is to do something good for others. To be precise, I'll tell you what we need to do about all the craziness he is mongering. We need to give peace a chance. FlatulentChimp will probably respond to this letter just like he responds to all criticism. He will put me down as "demented" or "caustic". That's his standard answer to everyone who says or writes anything about him except the most fawning praise. And that's it. FlatulentChimp's mandarin prose has always appealed to foul beatniks.

Rise of Zilart was included in the NA purchase (so... You have this expansion)... Zilart opened sky to players ~ and I think 3 advanced jobs.... CoP had some nice things ~ the quests to get Lufaise Meadows and Sea were incredibly challenging... If you play the game you will get burnt out just exp'ing all the time. Expansions are really worth it...

The NA ToAU is being released 2 days before the JP version.

Now if launch dates were reversed andthe JP verson were being released earlier then the NA. Would SE still have this 4/20 update for everyone?

Anyone know the exact timing? The reason I ask is because Japan's site says that they will be releasing this simulatenously to the world on the 20th. With JP being over half a day ahead of us, could this not then be released on the later half of the day on the 19th?

So much for having the 19th off.

Only good thing I can see is everyone gets a better chance at starting off on a even footing.

Except that I dont get home from work till 3pm on the 20th, so I'm sure everything will be figured out before I log in (j/k).
My question
# Apr 13 2006 at 4:53 AM Rating: Decent
Does anyone know where to order the PS2 version of the game update? I notice the link in the upper right hand corner but that store only list the product as being for PC. For those saying that it is just for PC, well nevermind my thoghts on that, It is listed as an update by SOE and it says you can purchase the product at many stores (yes it even lists the platforms) but when you go to the stores that it lists like Best buy and check on the games, there is nothing(I can preorder FF12 which is out in six months) I dont feel like ordering from the store link provided here cause I like to know what I buy when I go shopping, and if you cant list the product info correctly then I am sure the customer service department is just as logical. So does anyone know who is selling the PS2 version of the update?
RE: My question
# Apr 13 2006 at 5:30 AM Rating: Decent
amazon.com sells US stuff as the US site, or try game sales sites, I can't recomend any cuzz from UK, but I have found the expasion on the PS 2 there.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ENW5X8/ref=pd_ts_c_th_2/102-8758957-5723335?n=301712&s=videogames&v=glance
