    Spartan Assault is just plain awful. Anyone who can last more than ten minutes with it is a brave soul indeed. It's got nothing to redeem it at all.

    Given most cards still sell for about 5p a pop, the developers still get a cut of that and the money stays within Steam, I'm not even sure that's worth bothering about.

    Yeah, there's literally no sensible comparison with refunds before this policy and refunds after. The refund rate was artificially depressed by a policy of no refunds and when there was a refund...

    Unfortunately, the system is set up to favour people with a YouTube channel. Technically, the same for a games website too but the chances of any prominent games websites having someone on staff paid...

    Yeah. I suspect we'll see an uptick in the first week or so (especially leading up to the sale) of people trying to get refunds because they can but that'll settle down soon enough.

    In the main...

    They're going for liquidation of the company with the hopes of selling any assets to relieve some of the debt as they go. In short, they're fucked and probably not coming back.

    If anyone picks up...

    Right, yeah. I know what you're getting at. What I'm saying is that I don't want an in to them. Does that make sense? I'm happy enough reading this stuff, happier reading this stuff, without someone...

    I'm kinda fine with them how they are. As a person who doesn't really dig into them, I don't want a post that treats me like I need leading into {insert game of choice} or having things explained to...

    Last time I ducked in to try Warlock 2 it was like Warlock but with a hideous UI and much, much worse to play.

    Has time been kinder to it with updates etc... or is it still a bit guff?
  11. Yeah. Whichever way you shake it this is about...

    Yeah. Whichever way you shake it this is about CDPR trying to clamp down on the supply chain and ensuring that stores only buy keys from them, only sell keys with their explicit authorisation. Which...

    From experience, I don't think it's the case that Valve or Newell are disconnected, quite the opposite most of the time. They're the only company I know who regularly consult developers, invite...

    Yeah, that was sort of my thoughts as well, pretty much. The mod for profit stuff seems to be based on some pretty fundamental misunderstandings of things that exist outside of the free market and...

    I'll raise that to a "when people say they want professional mods, what exactly are they expecting?" because there seems to me to be two entirely distinct things here. One is "I want people to be...

    Hah, yeah. That was my first thought upon seeing it.

    It's OK I guess?

    Mordor is a bit of a selotaped together mess that somehow manages to work better than it should. The world is fairly desolate and uninteresting being just hills, mud and the odd...

    It's worth remembering here that players don't fund the sidesteps like Sunless Sea etc... to the tune of what most industries, and in large part the games industry too, would consider sustainable or...

    And a lot of them came to videogames at a time when, well, videogames were drifting off to a very man-centric sort of environment. I think we're seeing this get better but it's baby steps at the...

    Turns out it's depressingly frowned upon to put 5 year olds into ponies.

    Still. Some things you have to learn the hard way.

    Yeah, same here. It -is- good and I enjoy it lots but it always feels like it's falling short of what it wants to be and structurally, it's a bit messy. Mind you, I haven't tried it since the update...

    It'd probably be easier if Steam curation wasn't such a massive arseache to do. It's not that it's difficult really, it's just an incredibly tedious set up and one that's way, way more obtuse and...

    Yeah exactly. I mean we could speculate about this or we could look at all the evidence in front of us, right there, often in Peter's own words (for whatever they're worth, I suppose)
