yeah and like i said, if you call their support line, and tell them why, then it doesn't result in a ban. they don't ban for 1 chargeback, they ban if you're doing multiple chargebacks, as it costs them money everytime.

This is incorrect and doesn't jive with Origins publicly stated policy on chargebacks. There is a delay when chargebacks are processed before the merchant is notified, people doing them will likely get banned in a week or two. If you have evidence to post that says they will not ban accounts from the source (EA, Maxis or Origin) then do so otherwise be quiet and stop encouraging people to do something that will very likely jeopardize their accounts.

Slick lying in order to favor EA?? Say it ain't so!!

Refunds?



if you want a refund, do a chargeback, they can't ban your account for 1 chargeback, just call their customr service and tell them why. pleanty of people on their official forums are doing this.

Yes they can and they have said any chargebacks will result in a permanent account ban.


Wait, someone doesn't have (s)Lick muted? Really??



He's off his meds again??

Sad thing is, gamers are the most stupid of consumers. Despite Command&Conquer 4, Dark Spore, UbiDRM, Diablo 3, they STILL bought SimCity and it STILL behaved like all other always-online DRM, terribly. And despite SimCity now fucking up for everybody, if they announced another strong brand name but all washed up like this new SC and with always-online DRM they would all still bitch and whine and yet go buy the game.

All I'll say is this:

Of course we want pure crack, but we'll smoke it anyway even if it's cut with talc and Borax. That's just the nature of addiction.

Then it's rehab time.

And damn, my first ever removed post. I think. Shouldn't have quoted Slick I guess.

This can't be real. Please, someone tell me this isn't real. EA can't be this dumb and insulting at the same time.

Half a million dollars, and they're just reskinning XCOM.

How else do you expect turn-based combat to work? This is how turn-based combat has worked since the dawn of... turn-based combat.

Honestly. It's as if they never played a game before 2000. This is how many games back then resolved combat, turn-based. Even mighty Fallout.

Shit, next we'll have people saying Fallout 1 and 2 are just reskinned XCOM by the looks of it.

No wonder indies have risen and are now an established alternative to publishers. It's as if the sane gamers have gone indie and the insane gamers are still only buying AAA games and nothing more.

Hmm, I wanted a new Ultima but my points against this project have been exposed quite well by Creston.

Also, I am now having second thoughts on Civitas. Upon further review I think Civitas might be a scam and I'm not the only one thinking that.

Yeah, I have to admit that I've felt a little warning signal going off in my mind when I look at Civitas.

I hope I'm wrong, and I have a reminder on the page so I'll have another look 2 days before it's set to expire. But so far it does seem a bit iffy. And again, I see no way you can make a game of this kind with $250K, especially not if you're going to be releasing all these mod tools.

Creston

Might not be a scam, but it doesn't look to be a very experienced team, either. Posted by this guy.


I love the fact that they talk about getting PP links/page up and running, when they should never do that until they reach their initial goal...something fishy there. Obviously if you give to them now via PP, not only are you charged immediately, but it also doesn't count towards their KS goal...

I think the biggest red flag for me is how much space he spends bashing the new SimCity, almost as much space to describe the game itself. I see this as a probable scam that is taking advantage of the shit that is SimCity.

Either way too many red flags for me. I was hoping for this project to be true but as time went on and I kept reading the project page my uneasy feeling just kept growing.

Wasteland 2, this one, possibly Project Eternity, Dead State, Planetary Annihilation, Grim Dawn, Maia, War for the Overworld, etc etc etc

Oh my, this year is going to be a very special year for PC gaming. All from kickstarter as well.

This gets better and better, like a joke that never ceases to be funny despite how long it gets told.

Funny how the usual EA buttlicking apologists are strangely quiet now.

FTL is an example of a KS breakout success that's already been released, but I'm guessing you mean big KS games. I think the first one to release is Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse in September (which was a no-brainer for me, big adventure fan and fan of the series, and these guys know what they're doing).

Ahh thanks Sho, I guess Ill have to get around to checking FTL. If I had played that I would probably be aware of that fact.

You haven't played FTL yet? Burn the heretic!
