Star Wars Galaxies in the UK

22 Jun 2004

So I've been trying to get hold of Star Wars Galaxies through UK online shops. Amazon doesn't have any, I should know because I had it on order and it was always 1-2 weeks away. Trawling real high street shops came to nothing as well.

Then I noticed that FilePlanet has a 14 day trial offer on - they let you download the game from them then activate it with a credit card. Fileplanet kindly informed me that they had a wait of over two hours to download the trial. They probably also have a bandwidth cap. So I grabbed the filename, typed it into Google and found a site which was mirroring it.

A few hours of 180k/s downloading later and I have it. Just getting it installed now :D
