The point is that Tencent own both companies and therefore have the information easily available to do something about the situation.
Early Access has multiple disclaimers. That point is invalid.
Can't reply to your other comment, so I'll reply to this one. Again, you keep saying "Early Access" but the case is not about Early Access games.
"The ACCC alleges that Valve made false or misleading representations to Australian customers of Steam that:
-consumers were not entitled to a refund for any games sold by Valve via Steam in any circumstances;"
To repeat, ANY GAMES. There is no mention of "Early Access."
This court ruling is about all of Steam, not just Early Access, so no, not invalid.
Uh no. Wrong. The court ruling is aimed at the company Steam. The problem was early access where you could buy incomplete games. You can't buy incomplete games outside of early access. You can buy games you may not like, or may not play the way you want but they aren't broken or incomplete. So yes. Still invalid. Why you ask? Because again of the disclaimers on early access and in the steam FAQs. They are not responsible for you not doing your research on a game. Except apparently in Australia because they have the most ridiculous laws for a first world country in all of the world.
It's more to do with whether the product even works, that's where this came from, Valve selling utterly broken products on Steam and refusing to do anything about it.
"I feel like part of the problem is that no one really knows what an 'endgame' should be like."
I agree. I've said similar for years now, and all it seems to accomplish is anger those who pine for it. They don't even know what they're asking for. Very, very few times have I come across someone willing to flesh out what an "endgame" would even be in a particular game.
I think all it serves to be for gamers is an abstract of "Will I always have something to do?" which is a bit unrealistic in my opinion.
Have to disagree on that. millions of people play a game and a loud mouth plays a game who got the millions of people to play someone will always claim it was them like politicians always someone ready to claim they did it
I don't think he's even making the claim about popularising it, I am haha. Not sure how that's relevant. And for sure plenty of people were already playing it, but looking at steamcharts and steam spy, PewDiePie uploaded his first video on the 4th of this month, and there's a fairly sharp uptick in interest thereafter.
Hard to really tell with free games though, really.
He played it because it was already popular and it was close to 1 million downloads with 90%+ rating.
Yeah - I still remember battling the Angel car in Ridge Racer Revolution for days. No Google help, no Let's Play examples to look at, and no real knowledge of what would happen when I won (I got the car, it turns out). I do love a challenge, I promise, but I've never felt warm and bubbly about bullet sponges.
