    Syrok, don’t. Learn Japanese it’s cooler.

    (I AM Dutch, and it sounds so stupid)

    Benelux stands for Belgium Netherlands Luxembourg, just so that you know. It’s all in Dutch bleh, I always check amazing English sites, they’re always the first.

    @prodygee: It does sound funny; ruins the whole atmosphere when you play Uncharted for instance in Dutch and I keep on laughing at the enemies when they shouting at me, but I more or less have to learn as I will spend quite some time there soon. :)
    I love the sound of the Japanese language so I will learn it at some stage.

    That joke would have worked when Eurogamer.de launched, but unfortunatly the dutch don’t have a german accent, it is infact much worse. As many of my fellow countrymen have pointed out: it is a dreadfull language.
