    Steam or retail?

    Well, seeing that I get a discount for owning RO1, I'm tempted to get a digital version, but then existing only as a mark on my Steam account isn't something RO2 deserves in my mind. So, I ask you: Why should/n't I get the Steam version now? What are the goodies I get for buying early compared...

    Basovka Railway Station (makes a movie appearance)

    I was watching Sven Hassel's "Wheels of Terror" (or "The Misfit Brigade") the other day and was surprised to see a station house looking a lot like that in Basovka... They were like two identical brothers! I wonder if this scene in the movie was the source of inspiration for the map? Anybody...

    Trench telescope

    Wouldn't it be grand if snipers would get the trench telescope that Vasili Zaitsev uses in Enemy at the Gates? These were applied in WWII, and they are the origins of modern Optiwands used by special forces and SWAT teams. This would allow the sniper to spot for targets or look for enemy snipers...
