    Amazon offering full refunds for Mass Effect 3

    Even the Collectors Edition, they are putting their money where their (100% customer satisfaction) mouth is, good for them. Kinda makes me wish I got mine from them.. I will in the future.

    oh my god lol I have Never seen a retailer do that. Least not while offer a Full refund, usually some sort of rebate or coupon that can only be used in their stores. I mean EA might do it, I remeber the fiasco with APB. Some went about the route of raising hell to get their money back. And don't even get me started on what happens if a steam-game tanks.. kiss that cash goodbye

    Oh for fuck's sake. Now this is just embarrassing. Can I declare that I refuse to be associated with these people?

    A lot of people are frustrated about Mass Effect 3. They want to return it. They do.

    What's the problem ?

    Erm, making a game that was so frustrating and disappointing it causes mass migration in games. When an environmental disaster happens, first thing companies do is make sure no one....I mean no one is on record saying "sorry,or mybad". Theres a reason for it.



    Me? I don't like Masseffect, never have. Too many "pew-pew" lasers , not enough beefy weaponry and extremely linear within actual gameplay. Yet I don't go off on a tizzy about it, I knew i would never like it so I never bought it. I feel that decision had it's own rewards.

    I mean there were complaints about the game before it even hit the shelves, yet people lined up to give their money, and when the next masseffect is made(some corny play on the I.P im sure) Same people you see complain about it, will probably be the first in line for the next. This is why we ended up with ODST

    If you don't like it, hit em where it hurts...their wallets.

    This. You paid for something, it provided X hours of entertainment as it said on the tin. What's the world coming to these days.

    This is insane! I mean the rest of the game is excellent, it would be tantamount to piracy to get a full refund after finishing it.

    While I think that the Mass Effect games are criminally over-rated allowing a full refund is just silly.

    So the ending features death of shepard? the fuck is that really?


    they ask us to keep our saves ergo the character for five years or so only to kill him/her, probably in a very cheap way? I would be pissed too. Haven't they learned anything from Beth's shitty Fallout 3 ending?

    good for amazon and its customers.

    So what you're saying is that developers should never kill off player characters?

    Why? By all accounts the rest of the game is great. Everybody seems to really enjoy it right up until the very last minute or so when the weird plot shit turns up. How is it justifiable to give a full refund just because people don't like the very end of the game?

    You know what? I didn't like how HL2: Ep2 ended. Where's my friggin' refund?

    Citation needed I'm unaware of a person's right to return a game because they're not happy with the ending. You'd better provide some legislation to prove that and an instance of where it was successfully applied in such a case.

    Who is a game for, ultimately ? Most games are made for players to enjoy. One notable exception is Dwarf Fortress, which is made for the creator to enjoy.

    Well how about that.
    That game sucked. I want to return the retail package, so that the shop can sell it back to another person and profit. How about that.

    Movie tickets are torn.

    ------------

    I think customers (should) have every right to return a product they're not satisfied with, as long as it can be reused. Many people are deeply dissatisfied with Mass Effect 3.

    Books, movies(depends on medium) are a good example of a consumable product. After use, it's pretty much consumed and you don't care to read/see it another time. Games, at least in theory, are reusable, replayable. Very true for board games at least. Some people, for reasons that I can't comprehend, call Mass Effect 3 a game and not a movie. Then Amazon treats it like a game (because of their ignorance?).

    Congratulations, you just played a game for free. One could imagine why they wouldn't offer you that option.

    no. never said that.

    This is rather silly really. To be honest, most video games have nonsense endings, we'd be swimming in refunds.

    Still, if I'm lucky this means the game will be discounted soon...
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.
