50GB of disk space?!? If your ISP employs a data cap you'd better plan well in advance for the download. I realize the download won't be 50GB, but it won't be less than 30GB.

Lucky i don't live in the US.

Is this even a game or is it just a tech demo? Looks like the latter.

It's long overdue.

Iíve been a Steam customer for 8+ years. Like most, iím fully vested into this ecosystem, and for the most part itís been a good one. But as of late Itís become more apparent to me as the industry pushes toward this new and wondrous digital age, it feels as though my rights as a customer are grey at best, and as a customer who logs into his digital games portal/service, it seems these services hold all the keys to the gate. Example.

I purchased Watch Dogs Digital Deluxe at full retail from Steam. While a friend torrented his copy. He was playing the game 3 days before retail hit, as i waited, and listening to him review it as we spoke in vent for the next few days.

The game had serious issues out of the gate. My high end rig was brought to itís knees with the micro stutter fiasco, along with the black screen issues. And though i clearly purchased my game from Steam, being forced to log into Uplay(Iím looking at you Gabe..) was sketchy at best the first week due to Uplay's overloaded servers. While my friend wasnít burdened with any of this, enjoying his pirated copy.

I became so utterly frustrated, I opened a ticket, and requested a refund from Valve. Iíve never once asked for a refund in my 8 years of buying PC games from Steam. Not even the time i purchased Colonial Marines and itís season pass.. Yes, i could, and should wait for reviews, and at times i do, but as a gamer and enthusiast, i still get excited for new games, and i want to support that. So partly my fault, i get it. Hereís the kicker.

Steam is the largest online distributor of games software in the US(world?), and the only option iím given is to open an email and wait for an average turnaround of 3-7 days(my experience) And the quality of the support is, letís say..less than stellar. I can call Origin right now and get a real person. I can also call Uplay and get a real human, same with Xbox Live and PSN. I can live chat or skype with a support person on some 3rd rate Russian cdkey site..But Steam? Nope. Email only.

I received a response 4 days later, the person wouldn't acknowledge my request at all, but cut/paste Ubisofts support site for me to turn to. Hmm, ..I purchased Watch Dogs from you, Steam, not Ubisoft. Yup, it clearly says Valve Corp for $69.99 on my Paypal statement. If i walk into a Target store and buy a pair of Nikes that turn out to be defective, does Target give me a link to go to Nike for support? Iím fairly certain they would hear my issue, and take care of me, offer a refund, or least of all a store credit.

Why, as gamers have we come to accept the ďYou buy it, itís yours no matter how terrible the product turns out to beĒ mentality, and given all our rights away? Iím not looking for something for nothing, i truly want this refund out of principal. At this point I delete the game from my steam list, and request a refund one last time, explaining my situation, my frustration, and why i feel justified in this case, or i would be forced to contact Paypal, and ask them to do it. I waited 3 days for a response. Called Paypal, and they found my reason to be valid, and found in favor my case, and essentially reversed the charge, and gave me my money back from Valve Corp.

Not 2 hours go by and i receive a popup from Steam, informing me my account has now been disabled. I would no longer be able to make purchases, gifts, key activation, or frequent forums etc. Basically banning my account, until i chose to reverse it back. I found it amazing how quickly their response was in shutting me down, with no real explanation to boot. They also informed me my Paypal account was now banned permanently. At this time, iím still waiting for a response for my refund request from Valve. I've not heard back from them in weeks. I even took to write Gaben himself, twice, with no response yet, of course.

So, whoís property is it in the end? Mine, or Steams? From where i sit, it clearly feels as if Valve, Origin, Uplay, Live, PSN, and all these online services, in the end, own my digital rights and all that goes with them. And though we all understand return policies on games have been abused in the past, why have we given ALL our rights away? There should be exceptions to the rule, and there should be some protection for the customer.

Please do a follow up when you finally recieve the letter.

What happened to the guy proclaiming it was the best game evar?



That was me. I still think it's one of the best shooters ever but it's unfortunately attached the worst matchmaking systems ever and a non-existent server browser. I think the only hope now for a decent shooter will be the new UT considering BF4 was garbage, BFH beta was garbage, and the new COD is just Crysis of Duty.

I was actual thinking of someone else, but now I gotta double check them...

edit: Nope, not you. This other poster was crowing to the high heavens about it...

I haven't been crowing to the high heavens about it. And I don't think it's the best game ever. But I do think in terms of gameplay it's the best MP FPS presently. I wish it had dedicated servers so I could join a community and get to know who I'm playing with though.

You haven't been a long time player i see. You are the typical Xbox generation.

Thief is not as bad as everyone seems to suggest. If you enjoy stealth games in general (and not just the first two games in the Thief series), you will likely find something to enjoy. The levels are definitely more linear than in the previous games, but they are still pretty big and have lots of branching paths. Splinter Cell would be most comparable here. There is also tons of loot to steal and secrets to find (and getting 100% of both is still tough). There is great satisfaction to be gained from stealing every piece of loot while leaving every NPC oblivious and untouched.

The traversal system is a bit annoying, though you can get used to it. They didn't implement it very well, as the rules aren't consistent. Sometimes you can walk off ledges, sometimes you can't. Sometimes you can jump across a gap, sometimes you can't. If they had made it more like AC's system, it would have worked a lot better.
You can press x to drop from any ledge, you may have fall damage, I guess it stops you so you dont do this. I disagree that a system like Assassin's Creed would be better. This is a first person game and I feel it works well for that.

Jerykk wrote on Mar 2, 2014, 18:06:
The map is also pretty worthless in the city hub, as it doesn't show you the route you need to take to get to your destination. You basically just have to learn the layout of the hub.
I disagree again, it's great fun to explore this area, collecting bits and pieces along the way

Jerykk wrote on Mar 2, 2014, 18:06:
Based on 8 hours of gameplay (doing main story missions, side missions and general hub exploration), I'd probably give the game a 7.5. It's not the best Thief game nor the best stealth game, but it's pretty solid and entertaining in and of itself.
I'd give it an 8.5, having lots of fun with it. There is something about the atmospere and level design that really takes me back to playing games of the late 90's early 2000's. Not that it is old school but the sense of excitement is the same. Difficult to explain but a well welcomed feeling.

Please go and play the original Thief games first and then come with a verdict!

Arma 3 for $36? I'm tempted, but since I'll only play the SP, I should probably hold off.

Yep it aint worth it. Unless you are in a clan or something. I mostly play Armory in ARMA 2 and boy is it lonely.

Amazon sucks! US costumers only.

But since i already have it on Steam it doesn't matter. Where could i get the Texture pack? On another note the AI in Gold is not good at all. Guards stuck in walls etc..

So I was playing Thief 1 Gold during the past weekend, beat the first mission on Expert. Felt good man, felt good. I only had to reload once during the sneaking since I jumped over some carpet but landed on hard marble making a super loud noise, alerting the guard in the next room. I stood still for several seconds, cringing, then I heard the guard yelling... "Oh sh--" moment. Snuck into a mansion and stole a sceptor like a boss. I'm Garret and I take gold for myself, hells yeah.

I guess you run the TFix?

Thanks for making us want to dig our ear drums out with a fork every year.

We get it. Someone tied you down and forced you to listen to his keynotes A Clockwork Orange style.

Romero was right all along. Wasted money on ROCKETS AND YAPPED NON STOP FOR 10 years.

What does rockets had to do anything with it?

Bioshock Infinite is pretty fun and worth $10. I beat it on "hard" a week or so ago and got my ten bucks worth.

I liked it at least as well as the first Bioshock.

Seems it only is for US customers.

By the way Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition for £4.68 with the GMG25-0YUM5-VKMVU voucher at Greenmangaming.

Yea my post was kinda stupid that i could agree on. It's just my frustration of not having bought those games i wanted to buy at rebates which Steam had on those at the main site.

But my nickname is permantly changed by a moderator. I guess he's thought he made todays good deed.

And by the way i use Cheapshark to search for game sales across various Digital distribution sites.

Yea, not getting games I want at a massive discount makes me rage too... /sarcasm Time to grow up. There were tons of indie games on sale for more than 50% off during the Steam sale.

My guess is you just forgot which troll account you logged in to. BTW, you can change your name in the Account Options any time you want to.


Most games in my wishlist was at 50% but not more. There's tons of shitty indie games too you know! Indie games doesn't magically makes them good games.
