    Refund

    I hope you are right, but everything I have read indicated that there would be no additional work put into DF9 after 1.0. If you are right, then honestly, I'm actually not too bothered with what they are doing.

    Refund

    I have been looking over UK Consumer Rights and the appropriate bill is here http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/cbill/2013-2014/0161/14161.pdf In it it states that Digital content should be of "satisfactory quality" "34 (1) Every contract to supply digital content is to be treated as including a term that the quality of the digital content is satisfactory." "34 (2) The quality of digital content is satisfactory if it meets the standard that a reasonable person would consider satisfactory, taking account of— (a) any description of the digital content" I think DF can get around that one, because they never made any flat claims of what DF-9 will do, however it goes onto say: "34 (3) The quality of digital content includes its state and condition; and the following aspects (among others) are in appropriate cases aspects of the quality of digital content— (a) fitness for all the purposes for which digital content of that kind is usually supplied; (b) freedom from minor defects;" now DF-9 is a game, games are fun if you could argue that the state DF-9 is in on release is not fun, you could potentially get a refund, or retroactive discount on the game. freedom from minor defects is a bigger one though, because if on release DF say they are not doing anything on the game anymore, and it has bugs, which could be considered "minor defects" now the bill does not outright give a consumer the right to a refund, however it does say this "42 (2) If the digital content does not conform to the contract, the consumer’s rights (and the provisions about them and when they are available) are— (a) the right to repair or replacement (see section 43); (b) the right to a price reduction (see section 44)." (a) I do not think applies, because a repair would constitute a patch, which DF won't do, and a replacement implies it is the specific copy of the digital content which is faulty and another, fully working, copy of the same digital content is possible. but (b) might be possible "44 (1) The right to a price reduction is the right to require the trader to reduce the price to the consumer by an appropriate amount (including the right to receive a refund for anything already paid above the reduced amount). (2) The amount of the reduction may, where appropriate, be the full amount of the price. (3) A consumer who has that right may only exercise it in one of these situations— (a) because of section 43(3)(a) the consumer can require neither repair nor replacement of the digital content, or (b) the consumer has required the trader to repair or replace the digital content, but the trader is in breach of the requirement of section 43(2)(a) to do so within a reasonable time and with out significant inconvenience to the consumer." 43(3)(a) is simply "43 (3) The consumer cannot require the trader to repair or replace the digital content if that remedy (the repair or the replacement)— (a) is impossible" and 43(2)(a) is "43 (2) If the consumer requires the trader to repair or replace the digital content, the trader must— (a) do so within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to the consumer;" so it is my judgement that if when the game releases at 1.0, and the game has bugs which DF have said they will not fix, you are within your rights to get a retroactive discount on the game under UK law.
  3. You might want to check this out, it is literally (no hyperbole, it literally WAS designed as a DK game) Dungeon Keeper 3 minus the Dungeon Keeper IP, for legal reasons. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/subterraneangames/war-for-the-overworld/
  4. I got my stuff yesterday, I was hoping for a badge that hadn't been documented yet, but I got Rainbow, I'm wearing my shirt at work today!
  5. I loved the reference to that AND Grim Fandango in CMI, where there is a skeleton in the chicken shop place,that looks exactly like Manny with a knife in his back, and his hat says "Ask me about Grim Fandango" also the X-Wing in the swamp in EMI is a favourite of mine too.
  6. Mine apparently left Arizona on the 19th, but that's the last that USPS heard of it.... hope it arrives soon!
  7. i'm pretty sure i heard once that Steam have a no refund policy, buuuuut since you double bought it due to a glitch I'd say they definitely should give you the money back, their policy is, I assume, to prevent people taking advantage of a guaranteed money back policy.

  9. YES! (add orders@fangamer.com to your safe senders list/address book to make sure you get your email, I found mine just now in my junk box) also the shirt's are unisex? or does that just mean normal men's shirt shape?

  11. an entire world made of teeth a living/biological space ship a forest of back hair, on a hairy guy's back.

  13. If I decide to pre-buy a OUYA, I can almost certainly guarantee that it will be at least £10 cheaper than when it's eventually released in the UK, even with shipping, it works out at about £64, then with shipping £77, and then if I have to pay VAT on it, it would be about £90, and I don't see it being cheaper than £100 on UK release, which could be god knows how far down the road.
  14. I didn't say most things should be able to be picked up, I said most things that can be interacted with should be useless, and some of those things should be able to be picked up.
  15. i didn't mean lot of red herrings, just a few, but at least be able to interact with, if not pick up, most things.
  16. It's not like they are getting free money from backers, they are selling over 80000 consoles on pre-order. What kickstarter does is forgo the need to get a bank loan to afford to build the consoles and then sell them, not knowing exactly how many will sell, and having to pay interest on the loan etc. It's cutting out the middle man at the benefit of both the company running the campaign AND (perhaps to a lesser extent) the backers, who act like a massive focus group and if possible guide the development of the final product, meaning a better final product.
  17. obviously you won't know it's useless until you try interacting with it, and getting a funny response.
  18. having things highlighted is not a bad thing if a lot more stuff is able to be interacted with than necessary, if i had a choice, I'd say everything in a "room" that you'd be able to interact with in real life should be able to be interacted with, most of which would be useless, even if able to be picked up, but then those things could easily be used as a joke, or if picked up, used in a joke when interacted with later. sure if only important things are able to be interacted with, or would be highlighted, that would be lame, but the more interactions, the better, and when there are so many interactions, having some way to spot them all, is a must, whether it is a slight change in the cursor, or the name of the item pops up when you hover over it, something.
  19. but are "specs" really that important? I mean we are on a forum for a game that will undoubtedly run on the OUYA like a dream, in a genre (2D adventure games) in which the most demanding games can probably be run in a web browser... the OUYA is not competing with either smartphones or traditional consoles, but it looking to fill a niche somewhere between the two. people that don't care so much about graphics, but do like the idea of sitting in front of a TV to play games. Also graphics will be HD, and games like Machinarium, or LIMBO for example show that a simple undemanding game, in HD, can and does look beautiful, often more so than high quality 3D HD games.
  20. I'm backing $10 for now, I'll think about upping it to the $119 (£77) later, when PAL compatibility is confirmed
  21. I hope the Large shirts are a decent size! I'm not a fan of tight clothes
  22. That is crazy use of censoring, since when I see a censored work, I mentally insert the F word, making what you wrote actually seem more angry than you intended. anyway, my preference is one canonical ending with possibly a few little superficial but funny things that reference choices you have made. what would be kind of cool is like an National Lampoon's Animal House style, "what happened to so-and-so..." ending in the credits
