News Comments > Rimworld Steam Key Fraud Halted

Valve is so supposed to do their due diligence by going in and revoking those keys that have been reported as stolen. This is almost entirely Valve not doing their jobs.

Is anyone really surprised about this? Valve barley does anything but collect money and could give a rats ass about supporting us customers.
(rolling eyes) Typical half-baked Darks foot stomping. For someone that claims to be so 'in the know' when it comes to devs and business, you don't even understand what a chargeback from a CC company entails.

It is also a proof that all you need is a quality product to be successful. This game cost 30 bucks from beginning, was never on sale or Steam - which some say is the only way to make it in the indie world. Not true, since they shifted ~100K copies just through little exposure they had after Kickstarter.
I think Tynan has created a great product...and was lucky that he released it during a time that he could get amazing exposure through streamers on Twitch. Cohh Carnage has streamed this game off and on over the past couple years... It is a whole new model on marketing and grass roots approaches...

This is a really fun indie title. Glad to see it finally make it to Steam.

I dunno how many games out there allow you to leverage a Sociopath into a medical field....and then use him to harvest organs from prisoners to heal other colonists.

Phffft. I hope they go bankrupt. Releasing OMD2 was an insult to everyone that bought OMD. This is even worse. The first two games should have had all the content under a single title.

I was disappointed that they tried to keep the word association game positive. I really had to dig to find something positive to check about Razer, Xbox, and Microsoft.

Thanks for such a great site, Blue.

Earlier this year I ran across an old text document that had a long list of URLs including Blues. It was dated around 2000-2002.

I really wanted to get upset too at Valve for their part in this. But then I realized, you know what, their part in this really is no different than collectible trading cards kids have been buying for decades. And I'm sure there were even kids who gambled with them.
Exactly. Anyone that ever collected baseball cards as a kid was doing the exact same thing. The outrage in this thread directed toward Gabe/Valve is just the same laughable bullshit that comes up in any thread that involves them.

To be fair, it's really not their problem if kids are gambling online, in any form. That's an issue with parenting in the home.
I'm not sure if you read anything about this situation.... It *is* their problem. They are marketing a product to their target demographic....kids. It's no different than using Bugs Bunny to sell Wild Turkey to kids over the internet when you know there is no way to confirm ID. On top of that, they are pushing a site that they have a stake in with zero transparency. It is morally reprehensible and there are legal ramifications.

16 years is pretty damn respectable. Might want to hit up a local dealer about warranty on parts. A *good* chair is something everyone that games or works at a desk should invest in. $700 over the course of a decade is a pittance for the aches, pains, and damage cheap chairs are responsible for.

pretty funny that robert jordan was the biggest name in fantasy when GRRM was trying to get his footing and a song of ice and fire hit the mainstream.
I loved the first few Jordan books....but the success all went to his head. He started writing drivel by the pound and becoming the living incarnation of petulance. Whereas GoT should get multiple seasons per book, Jordan's works could be easily boiled down to multiple books per season. So many wasted pages on minutae and loose threads....

Posted this over a year ago, it might have been a bit harsh at the time. Anyone care to comment why you think the game was so good? I only played for the first like 3-4 months after release but my memory of the game wasn't a good one.
I'm right there with you. Played at launch. Horrific experience. Played for a few months after launch. Boring. I was able to read a book while doing missions with my toon because it was so formulaic....just cycle through my keys while reading until it was over.

I really don't understand all the win10 hatred, aside from the overblown "they're spying on us!" shit
Sigh. It's not "shit". There are plenty of valid reasons to detest it.
- Stealth/forced upgrade
- rampant spyware
- forced updates
- horrific UI
- hardware incompatibility
- software incompatibility
- lack of support from third parties
Any one of these is a reasonable qualifier for it, or at least Microsoft, to be hated. Honestly, I don't have a clue what the hell MS has been doing for the last 8 years. So many of their decisions have been "piss as many of our consumers off as possible". Look at what they've done with their desktop OS, their licensing, the massive changes to Exchange server, forcing broken upgrades...etc...etc...

You're also incorrect, the game plays wonderfully on the console. PC vs Console on Overwatch is entirely subjective. I have played it on PC and Xbox One and I happen to prefer the One's closed environment and level playing field.

I could keep going, just wanted to prove you very wrong. ;p
...I don't think your post proved anything except sharing an opinion that you prefer a lesser experience that is foisted on all players. Which is fine....but hardly firm ground to stand on. The hard truth is that both platforms have their strengths....which is something I'll happily state on whatever-centric site I'm on. Party games or just plain fun group games are always better on consoles. If you were talking about a 3rd person shooter or adventure game...I'll grant you that they are designed for gamepads/controllers (which I have for my PC as well). FPS, MOBA, RTS, etc....for the most part are always better experiences with KB&M. Graphics/sound/loadtimes are almost always beaten by PC unless you're looking at a port that was gimped.

Denuvo DRM. The Devs say that it is the least invasive form....but will still protect the .exe's from being altered. Lots of handwaving and screeching from Chicken Littles, though....

The heroes are all very bland and boring and each round takes way too long to slog through judging by the 10 or so games I have painfully forced my self to go through.

It just fails on all fronts in my view.
It takes far too long to kill minions and the damage you do with your specials even at level 10 is pathetic when considering player health pools.
So Overwatch is a TF2 ripoff.....and Battleborn is a Monday Night Combat ripoff. Laugh.
