You would think that if a dev was offering a steam key that it would be on the up and up and through Steam.
Is this the developers fault?
The article does a poor job of explaining what happened.

or the scumbags themselves are filing illegitimate chargebacks and small indie studio simply cannot handle the workload involved with disputing them all. A bank will give their customer the benefit of the doubt if the merchant in question does not respond in time to a chargeback

If this is true and developers are aware of the risks involved it comes back around to being the developers fault for not handling their side of the business properly.

Sure, when it's a big developer, but smaller indies simply don't have the time and ressources to do that kind of stuff. Also, awareness of this fraud is somewhat new and few people know about it.

Edit: also, it happened to Ubisoft and they dealt with it like you said. They deactivated the keys. The public complained so hard that they had to give away the keys for free. They were basically robbed.

Hey apathetic devs and publishers... stop it. Even Microsoft gets it now. We dont want another launcher. Just put it on steam or sell it on gog.com.

Just knock it the hell off.

Easy for us to say, but Steam charges quite a fee to sell your game, when you are big enough why would one simply surrender such revenue? I get our side of it, but I get their side as well.

Yeah, you can't blame them, but it's actually also good for us. Competition is good for consumers.

I'm not convinced competition is that good - just look at sports in the UK. I used to be able to watch football for the price of my TV License. Now, if I want to watch it I need a TV License, Sky Sports Subscription, BT Sports Subscription and pay for EuroSports too ... I missed the part where it was an improvement!

I have no idea what you're talking about, but since you need all of these different things to watch one sport, it seems different. With gaming, you need only one of the many platforms to play one game.

I played it a lot, but at a certain point the game completely breaks down. It's fun, but it could have been so much more fun with better design decisions.

I went ahead and bought DOOM while it was on sale. The demo didn't impress me but I decided to give the game another chance. It's really a mediocre shooter. All I want is shoot but I'm constantly hindered by the gore kill mechanic where the enemies are dazed instead of just dying. Furthermore the chainsaw is absolutely ATROCIOUS in this game. I cannot believe they were able to fuck this up so badly. What's wrong with the original chainsaw from Doom? I will never understand this.
I'm happy that it has Vulkan support but I'd be much happier if more games would include it.

Your opinions on doom are wrong. Everything you said about it is false.

I'm kidding, but that's what I've been told repeatedly on this site for stating the same ones.

I loved Blood 2

I didn't like Blood 2 at the time because it was so different from Blood 1. Also, it had way too advanced textures and models for the time and you needed a beast of a PC to run it. I replayed it years later and I actually enjoyed it. Nowhere near the level of Blood 1 of course.

Hrm, good luck; a well done Blood sequel/revival/reboot etc. would be great!

It's been like 20 years since I played Blood, but I remember mostly being entertained by the weapon choices, the level design doesn't really stick out as particularly strong, etc. I'll try to remember to pick it up on Gog next time it's on sale.

The level design is my favorite part of Blood. It was excellent. The best of all the Build engine games in my opinion.

In my mind, there's no way they can release something close to the original. Everything was too top notch. The team was killing it and making all the right decisions. Duplicating that requires too many variables to set into place. I'm willing to let them try though. I usually don't like these reboots, but the Blood franchise is dead for real now, so what the hell.

News Comments > Windows Gaming Survey
13. Re: Windows Gaming Survey Jul 8, 2016, 23:24 ItBurn
 
I feel like the section asking you why you prefer PC gaming is a joke... It's like it's trying to convince the person taking the survey that PC is better. Also, how can PC gaming be improved by Microsoft? Leave it alone!

Edit: From what I understand(I may be completely wrong, but so far I've not been told otherwise), UWP is an app store. It has several disadvantages. The main one for me is that you don't have access to your files and executables, so the only modding possible is limited pre-baked toys like Snap Map. You can get mods like Bethesda does(and only Bethesda it seems), but they'll be limited compared to what's currently possible by modifying the files. Exemples are the script extender and ENB.

So... you're complaining about the game's lack of difficulty without having even played on Nightmare?

No, I don't... I thought that hard mode was hard enough. I don't think I ever said that there was a lack of difficulty... I just thought that this new mode I'm describing should be a difficulty setting because there's already a menu for it, so it would be easy to add.

My dream patch would be a difficulty setting that rebalances the whole game.
- Remove stunned state for enemies. Glory kills can be done only if monster would die from the melee damage. Rebalance monster health so that it's based on shotgun damage increments.
- Killing enemies very rarely/never gives health, rebalance the amount of health for in-level health packs to compensate.
- Chainsaw no longer drops ammo and enemies very rarely/never do.
- Rebalance of enemy health and damage to compensate for these changes.
- Change the waves of enemies so that we get more enemies, more variety and more of the tougher enemies as the story progresses.

I think that these wouldn't be too hard to implement as a patch. If I could change another thing though, it would be to simplify the upgrade system so that you're not stressed to find all the secrets in order to be strong enough to continue. Finding the secrets takes a long time and it would be cool if we could skip them like in the old Doom.

That would warrant another replay. Right now, playing nightmare isn't really appealing because the difficulty change doesn't really change anything other than damage values. As far as I can tell anyway.

My girlfriend fell asleep while watching Netflix. She woke up and her laptop now had Windows 10. It wouldn't start though. It couldn't connect to wifi to complete the installation. The next day, I had to connect it with a cable in order to fix the issue. If you don't have a cable, you're shit out of luck. No more laptop for you.

I call bullshit.
Your "girlfriend" obviously was very sloppy with her mouse clicks and clicked the nag box instead of the 'X' in an attempt to close it thus accepting the upgrade.
The upgrade is scheduled for 3am unless changed by the user.
Result: Your "girlfriend" got updated while she slept.
Not to mention the final message box that appears the day before the upgrade to let the user know that the upgrade will take place the following morning.
I have no real love for Microsoft but, you are a hater.

I don't know what my gf did exactly, but she clearly didn't want the update. If it wasn't forced, it's because the popup was willingly misleading. It's a known fact that pressing the X actually accepts the update, which regardless of context is forcing the update on everyone but the most tech savy. The internet is alight with stories like this and articles about how hard Microsoft is forcing the update. Are you calling bullshit on all the issues that I've had and that I'm still having? Microsoft is doing things to me that makes me hate them, so yeah, I guess I'm a hater... You're either living in another universe or you're a Microsoft employee.

So win10 booted, but now when she tries to watch Netflix in Chrome, it freezes constantly and it's basically unwatchable. I tried to fix it, nothing works. She's now forced to use the Edge browser...

She(and I) never wanted Win10 and the upgrade cost us valuable hours of our life and stressed us out. So, now we're left with a shittier experience than we had before and we'd need to spend a bunch more hours in order to configure it properly, especially to disable all the spying...

I hate Microsoft.

The level design in the demo isn't very reassuring. It's exactly what I'd expect from procedurally generated levels: no real focus or direction, random objectives, etc. The combat still looks like a lot of fun but the level design feels like a definite step back from the previous game.

The level design was the weakest part of the first game. It was too linear. I'll take these procedurally generated ones any day.

I'm buying this game full price if the reviews are good.

Already pre-ordered, this and Prey.

Stoked for the new titanfall, watchdogs, and battlefield... but more stoked for this and Prey. replayed the original prey a week ago, IMO the last great game from that golden age of SP FPS games. Pound for pound, I think Prey is better than halflife.

You pre-ordered a game that has 1 cgi trailer?

Dude, I've been waiting for Prey 2 for almost a decade. It's been worked on then cancelled over several times. Such a heartbreaker. Now that it's official, fuck yeah I'm throwing money at the screen.

And no, I haven't seen the trailer on purpose, no spoilers

Slick, this new Prey seems to have NOTHING to do with the old one. I highly suggest you wait before you buy.
