News Comments > Steam AU Refund Legal Dispute

I wish I could have gotten a refund on at least half the games I have bought, that are DRM crippled or just plain broken.

shouldn't it read 'vendors leaving in back doors puts users at risk'... heartbleed wasn't a bug, it was a backdoor that was exposed.

screw origin.

I'm happy with steam - instead of EA's ghetto DRM.

Snowden's right.

When the head of the NSA lied to US congress and the American people about what the NSA was doing it was time to do something about it.

Since our rights to privacy are being completely ignored not only by government but by industry we need to take our privacy back.

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he was granted asylum in 2012. The embassy, in turn, is constantly surrounded by London police—the city government is spending around $16,000 each day

talk about over staying your welcome, is he going to have to live there for the rest of his life?

While corrupt judges exist...

The law only works for the power elite.

History of lying to Congress and the American people a definite plus.

Only an asshole would start a job with the NSA after the Snowden revelations.

I pity those already working there.

I wonder if we'll see less shill activity on websites after yesterday's intercept release on their social media activities (was GCHQ, but the five eyes countries all share the tools).

country has also completely become an Oligarchy.

“A Republic, if you can keep it.” - Ben Franklin knew about the powers that have reclaimed the country.

The masses get bored faster, would Snowden still have been able to keep the steady flow of news going if he had stayed in the USA, if not then he would have been yesterdays news pretty fast and to be honest give it a few more months and he will be, that dude that..... He still paying the price of living in exile for the rest of his life but I guess it beats Guantanamo bay or where ever they would have whisked him off too.

Snowden and Greenwald's strategy to continuously trickle stuff out over 1.5 years has been quite genius. They've managed to keep it in the news on nearly a weekly basis since the story broke.

100% agree. A lot of people are criticizing him for this, saying that it's because he's an egomaniac. But it is the absolute best way to do it, if the intent is to effect change.

Kill the messenger - same thing as with Assange, but only the already brainwashed treat that with anything other than ridicule.

55% understand the issue, the oth 45% believe what they've been told to believe.

There used to be whistleblower protections which would have made what Snowden did completely legal, but Dubya gutted those, and started throwing whistleblowers in jail.

When the N.S.A. bald faced lied to congress Snowden realised that the system is completely corrupt and did exactly what he needed to, for his country.

he's a hero, far more of one than those who blindly obey orders because they are 'legal'.

Kind of annoying that the FW-190 is only available in the Premium Edition. A real WW2 classic, that one.

You are wrong. The sim contains the FW190 'A', a rather poor performing aircraft when you compare it to the aircraft you are thinking of. The world famous Dora, or as it is less comonly known the FW190 'D'.

The early 190A was a SUPERB aircraft, outclassing everything that flew in any air force during the period it was active.

It was so good that UK intelligence analysts wouldn't accept what pilots who encountered it were saying they were experiencing.

It's only later models of the A that were far heavier, and that the allies started introducing their new aircraft that the 190A lost the edge it had in the medium to low altitude combat band.

A bribe?

I'd say bordering on extortion.

Isn't that the norm in today's oligarchy?

Seems more like the in thing to hate on DayZ. It's the popular reaction in every thread online that mentions it.

that's because it's using the arma engine which is utter crap.

What... Sony is going to make a propaganda film like the one about Assange?

I wonder how many back doors are in Sony products? (especially considering the whole issue with the rootkits they were installing on people's PC's for DRM).

I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS ZOMBIE SHIT.
Yeah there's been a lot of zombie games lately, and people don't seem to be tired of it yet.
Zombie games are the new Modern Military Shooters

Someone needs to research the length the WWII fad on PCs ran, compared to the current zombie fad...


I'm tired of the Nazi shit - we have countries doing things TODAY that are as abhorrent yet nothing is said - shouldn't it be more important to address the evil of today than ignore it and focus on the evil of a generation that is mostly already dead?

Good

IL-2 series are the best ww2 flight sims eva.

Except Cliffs of Dover which was absolutely unacceptable on release and is barely acceptable now.

True, but Modders fixed it. Its in tip top shape now.

Fixed or improved? I haven't touched any of the mods.

The things that made it unplayable for me were:
Constant crashes
FSAA not working
The 'rowboat effect' (ie graphics stutter) when using ati xfire
invisible planes
net code just being absolutely horrendous
AI issues

Were these addressed?

Thanks!

hmm.. seems to be that crowdfunders think they are paying for development of the thing they give money for (ie a product), only for increasing portions of the money to be used for all sorts of extra stuff like posh offices and non developmental related things.
