News Comments > Steam EU Refunds Now Available [Updated]
6. Re: Steam EU Refunds Now Available Mar 18, 2015, 09:18 gilly775
 
A post on Reddit does note, however, that this is a little tricky, as it sounds like part of the checkout process asks for prior consent to waive this right to finalize your purchase, so it sounds like actually playing a game ends the ability to return it.

So, let me get this straight. You start the game, and Steam acknowledges that you did. Said game crashes and you still cannot get it working. You forfeit the chance to return it when all of your troubleshooting still doesn't work? That doesn't help that much.

Huh, as a fan of both sci fi games and the Stronghold series (well 1 & 2, anyways), I'm surprised I've never heard of this. Looks pretty fun. Anyone play it?

I did. It was a pretty fun game. Not only did you have to consider what you were building but you had to try to appease your workers and I remembered it was pretty difficult to do so. I never beat it but it surely broke the mold of what Firefly did with the Stronghold series.

Really excited about this, got a lot of mileage out of Terraria, the addition of actual goals and objectives to sandboxers doesn't hurt things at all. Shame Starbound totally failed to deliver but hopefully this doesn't disappoint.

How did it totally fail to deliver? I'm still finding fun in both games.

Well I never got the DLC and there is no way to download it.

Yeah, with some free DLC you need to "Download" it from the list of DLC for it to be registered. I noticed it on that link that fiftykyu provided and it registered once I clicked on "Download".

So, this is more of a distraction to try and keep people from remembering the clusterfuck they called a release and hope they'll be forgiven when it happens next time.

I'm still waiting for the patches to make the game fun and playable are released before buying.

Already down to ~£13 on keysites ... probably sub £5 when I jump in ...

I'm having fun with it at least. The XBox One version is working well except for some minor glitches.

Does this mean the issues in the main game have been addressed or is this just a distraction?

Just a distraction people say it still runs like shit.

I've only had a couple of issues on my XBone: Today in a fight, Arno wasn't actually fighting and had to sheathe his sword and unsheathe it to fight again and I still notice citizen's clothes changing in the distance when you get closer to them. Otherwise, after around 50+ hours and nearly completing it, it runs a lot better with the latest patches.

Wow, looks like a really nice game. Only thing holding me back is that I really wanted to play it with a flight stick and haven't done any research on that (that and it will end up adding a lot of cost to this game.)

The mouse controls sound pretty solid, but everyone says not to (I really like X3 with a mouse, though.)

For a decently priced joystick under $50, this works well:

If you've got more cash, I'd say this:

This is exactly the Elite game I remember from when I played Elite II: Frontier years ago on a 486 computer, minus the planetary landings and more AI populated systems. I am confident those will get added as time goes on but like Dmitri_M said, comparing this game to a game with thousands of promises and little to show for it is pointless. I can't wait to see the disappointment on SC's backers threads when all of the promises are made and a good many aren't delivered. At least Braben and company didn't make so many promises they haven't kept (the lack of an offline mode irritated me, but knowing how much fun I've had with Elite II in the past and how much fun I'm having now negates that for me).

I think the refunds should be offered to everyone, not just people who haven't played yet. They failed to deliver on what I understand is a promised feature, and that means the ethical thing to do would be to offer everyone who wants one a refund. I played Planetary Annhilation online when it was Early Access because it was the opnly way to try out the game so I could give my feedback, but the only reason I backed it was because of the promised offline mode. I assume that would be the case with some people who were in the Beta. They are burning up a lot of their trust with gamers.

I kind of feel that kickstarters should get a refund opportunity period, since beta was free.

But if you paid a premium for the beta, which I did, that was to participate in the beta process. Even if the end product isn't something that meets it's promises, you got your beta money's worth and there's no reason why you should get that refunded.

I didn't hear about the KS until when the beta released, so when I read that the KS promised offline mode, I paid in for the PB. I bought the game mainly for offline mode since where I live in the sticks, I barely have a solid connection most of the time with the local ISP. So, yeah, I feel I was lied to knowing an offline mode was promised.

Also, I have no played the game since the end of May. One other time I tried, my inet connection went down and other, offline games took over from there. I was holding out for that offline mode to pick it up again.

No, but I remember playing Defender of the Crown and screaming at my C64 whenever I'd lose the sword fight (and thus failing to see the damsel strip off her clothes). Good times.

I don't think I ever won a jousting match in that game.

Borderlands is a pretty safe preorder, at least you know what you're getting.

Yeah, but not for that price. I can wait with a library of other things out now and with Far Cry 4 and Assassin's Creed 5 on the horizon.

Gal Civ 3 for $99 early access now that is just down right crazy!

Keep in mind for that price that you get all future dlc and expansions for free. The high price is more like buying the game and a complete season pass. If they follow through their promise to release Dark Avatar/Arnor style expansions plus smaller DLC you'll be breaking even or possibly saving money in the long run.

"If" being the key word.

Or you just wait until next years steam summer sale so that you can save money with guarantee There is no reason to pre-order games.

Unless you actually want to play them and they're EA

They may have once been a good developer, but no longer.

Well, you should try Elemental Fallen Heroes if you haven't. They did a good job with that and continue to update it.

and die-hard Sidewinder fans may be offended to hear them refer to this as "the best PC controller Microsoft has ever produced."

Which Sidewinder controller? there were many different models.

The big update is just the sheer scope. Galciv 2 could handle a few thousand "actors" (ships, planets, space stations, rebels, etc) in its engine before it would crap out. This engine is solely 64 bit, and built from the ground up to handle hundreds of thousands of actors. So the entire scope of the game will increase by an incredible amount.

Other than having actual combat, what really needed dramatic overhauls or improvements in Galciv2? It was already pretty darn great.

Creston, have you tried Distant Worlds: Universe? If not, get it right the fuck now! I think you might fall in love with it.

Star Ruler 2 is in early access and is good and getting better.

Turned based combat and pretty much Civilization in space, not my kind of fun. I'm hoping they make Sins 2. but I'm not holding my breath.

Not exactly like Civ. You can't build characters in Civ like you can starships in Gal Civ.
