Since I didn't want to inconvenience any developers through this, I chose a game I was interested in and could justify re-purchasing after getting a refund. Wait even a week or two and the price will be more reasonable. This refund took one week and 14 hours to be approved, and then the amount remained pending in my Steam wallet for two more days. Suddenly people bitching about buying the game and it going on sale 10 days later, etc. When the refund is approved, you'll receive a confirmation email. Valve has also some initial data to developers to help with interpreting the impact of refunds and apparently have plans to expand this over time to give more insight.
Im not too bothered about how long the money takes to go back onto my card, but how long does it take for the refund to process and be accepted and for them to take the game out of my account? Steam will tell you at the time of purchase if the game developer has opted to offer refunds on the in-game item you are buying. I feel like I should get my money back for Eador: Masters of the Broken World and Dying Light, since the former never ran on Linux at all despite saying it did and the latter is still very broken. Steam may refund an entire order if you file a ticket on their tech support site. Now im debating buying it back again lol. Note, however, they may require you to have a good reason. Either they change their policy or stop trading in Australia. Originally posted by :Well if i'm just giving the money straight back to steam by buying the castle crashers trading cards, then whats the problem? If something is objectively wrong with the implementation of the refund system, it's that.
Developers who might like to offer refunds that Valve would deny also don't currently have any options that would result in the game being removed from the player's library. In my opinion thats abuse of the system and it directly harms the game developers. Nothing to do with being hard up for cash. Note that some of the screenshots shown were taken after I'd been refunded and re-purchased the game, accounting for the discrepancy in hours played, achievements and dates. Personally, I'm comfortable with this - if somebody is to refund a game with legitimate concerns, then their review may contain worthwhile information though, as with all reviews, it's best to take the opinions opinions with a grain of salt until you know where the author's tastes and perspectives lie in comparison to your own. This page shows your purchase date, number of hours played, support contact details for developers including contact email addresses , system requirements, features, and a link to the community discussion forums and community created guides. Usually these gift copies end up being worth a bit more than you paid in terms of trade value, as once the sale is over there are still likely people who want to own the game but missed the last major sale.
If origin did it first. I would re-purchase both these games if they were playable, but they're just not night now. This stuff may be evidence, but it's anecdotal and not strong enough to be making decisions based on. These end up being visible to developers who choose to look at them. Days later came the Thanksgiving sale for, I think, the price you mentioned maybe a little more. Branthog said: I wish they'd have a grace period. But this seems like a steal.
Thus the advice in tip 1 Occasionally pricing errors occur. This policy should also help weed out problematic titles that appear to be half-baked due to bugs and broken features. And goodness knows how this will work with games set to offline mode. According to Valve, the refunds pertain to games and software that are purchased on Steam, leaving music and video out of the picture. If you see a ridiculous deal as a flash sale or daily deal, my advice would be to buy fast.
Valve is also taking a hard line on potential abuse of this system. I never ask for a refund on Steam or Gog. The refund system seems to have been broadly well received, though some developers have been raising concerns with regards to the specifics of the policy. Let alone the issues it raises for games that last under two hours. I've spoken to other Steam users who have had refunds processed within 48 hours. I haven't gotten around to properly poking at it, but at a glance, one could assume they 'fixed' the matter. Purchases which have been partially paid for via Steam wallet funds can only be refunded to your Steam wallet.
That's a pretty good idea! If a game outright didn't work, then I would, obviously. I mean, I have nothing against it in principle, but I'm just never that hard up for cash that I would need the money back. Yesterday i bought castle crashers for i think £2. I'd not played BlazeRush before and hadn't previously had contact with any of the developers that I'm aware of. I would re-purchase both these games if they were playable, but they're just not night now. I think they stopped doing that, though. Customers should ask for the refund anyway, as Valve will gladly take a look at the situation.
For instance, Amazon has been running massive sales to coincide with Steam Sales recently. Not sure what you're implying, but he also mentions it would happen regardless of Steam refunds which I agree on this subject. All up, the process is fairly straightforward and doesn't take a lot of time. These are based on previous experience, and they may change if Valve or a publisher decides to break them. Whilst the refund system is definitely a smooth, accessible experience, it is a negative proposition one I hope that most readers will be fortunate enough to avoid , and for this reason I thought I'd go through the motions and give an idea of what's involved. As I mentioned in the article though, people have been reporting that they've received refunds for purchases as old as 6 months, and with playtime well beyond the two hours. I decided I would rather get the gold version of the game instead, only had the game for a few minutes at the most and haven't opened it either.
I never ask for a refund on Steam or Gog. Users are entitled to an unconditional refund within 14 days providing they have not played more than 2 hours' worth. With these new refund rules, Valve is putting Steam customers first before the publishers' pockets. It pays to check in with the other retailers before you pull the trigger. Some payment methods available through Steam in your country may not support refunding a purchase back to the original payment method.
So, it's a non-issue for me. If origin did it first. Dying Light isn't any more broken than that I finished it with good performance and no serious issues on linux. So, if you buy a game, download it, go to offline mode, play it, and never ever go online in your client again, or you'll uninstall steam right away I'm not sure if uninstall is enough, it should be , that data will never be synchronized, and it won't show up in your profile. O; Even just falling on your ass can crack your tailbone, which is never fun.
