Steam refunds are a thing now
« on: June 02, 2015, 06:50:38 pm »
So this new steam thing. where they give you a refund for any reason within 14 days of purchase except on movies and games bought outside steam. Wish I could get a refund from some of the other products in my library, but hey. we get refunds now.

Re...funds? I thought steam was deathly allergic to such things.
What next? Proper customer support?
I'd fucking drop kick an old lady, no questions asked.
I am always right when shark dicks are involved.
If it's not interrogation porn then it's poorly named and a missed opportunity.
Well, if you think about it, rape is for fun.
if utterly mad was any gayer, i'd shop here
I'd rather circumcise myself in a public place.
Eh, I don't really find anyone's sig too unreasonable. Though Caconym's is almost unreasonable

Wow, have they finally woken up to the fact that their library is full of garbage?  Times are a' changin'.

>Buy incredibly linear but fun game.
>Complete it before 2 weeks.
>Refund it.
>Congrats! You have had all the fun of the game at 0% the price!
(Although, no fun game I know of is linear enough for this. Except some visual novels, if you're otaku to the point that you have a hug-pillow into those types of glorified books games.)

In all seriousness though, this is a good thing. Now I don't have to worry about wasting money when buying potentially-crap games that steam seems to be full of.

Important detail is that you can refund the game, but only if you have less than 2 hours of playtime.

A really short visual novel then. Or would perpetually refund the game over and over to never reach the playtime limit work?

I know it makes me a bit more likely to buy games, knowing that I can give them back if I don't like them. Before when you bought a game, you were commited. I got starforge and legends of dawn and have been stuck with them ever since. starforge is an unfinished rush job and legends of dawn is an almost criminal mess. Havn't really been able to convince myself to buy anything since legends of dawn burned me so badly.

Don't buy legends of dawn, even if it were free, it would still cost too much.

so, figured I'd give this thread an update.
Had two successful refunds meeting the requirements (14 days, under two hours), and just put in a third one (purchased a game I realized I'm not going to play, and I meet the requirements) so the system works within it's bounds. Had one unsuccessful refund attempt for HL2, I bought it, put seven or so hours into it and two days after I bought it it went on sale, so I put the request in and got denied, wasn't a big deal and didn't think it would work but thought it was worth a try.
