Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

There's a hole in the wall. A Portal.

    i'm sure they would refund money if they didn't operate entirely digitally

    Orik

    I'm sure they wouldn't close unresolved issues if they weren't jackasses.

    They can't refund the money cause they already spent it on drugs.

    they probably just didn't have any 98 machines to test on, having donated them all to homeless people as part of a community initiative

    Then they shouldn't have claimed to support it.

    Jesus, you are so dumb.

    They don't.

    Anymore.

    When I got the game I was having problems with, they did.

    Believe me, when you're running 98, you fucking check.

    well fram

    i bet they have a little something called 'priorities'

    your request probably landed in the file labeled 'bitch work' that is given to interns who swear a lot

    That's fine, they can give me my money back, then.

    Wait, no, they are "unable" to provide refunds for games purchased over Steam.

    good thing they tell you that before you buy it

    maybe you should have bought it at a brick and mortar store, where they still won't give you your money back

    Look, either make it your policy to refund money when your shit doesn't work, or make it your policy to fix your shit when your shit doesn't work.

    Theire policy is to claim their shit will work, and then not fucking bother getting their shit to work.

    That is a bullshit policy.

    they can't refund money off of electronic purchases

    do you not realize why or something

    Honestly, though, that is a very strange policy given that Steam can quite easily deny your ability to play a particular game (as Fram has experienced in this case). Not that I'm contending your observation, which I don't doubt, but Valve really should offer refunds of electronic purchases since, unlike with optical media, they actually can take back the goods.

    A lot of the little details in that beginning part was a nice touch. I really liked the red phone that had it's wire cut.

    In the commentary the phone was there for an associate to call when GLaDOS goes batshit and flood the enrichment center with a deadly neurotoxin.


    it didn't work

    I get a kick thinking of how much money they wasted putting their logo all over everything. Even had their own custom chairs.

    I'm sure this has been covered already, but there's going to be a plushie Companion Cube.

    This is glorious.

    I'm going to write a sitcom called "Everyone Loves Companion Cube."

    Wife: Companion Cube, did you forget to do the dishes again?

    Companion Cube: ....

    laughtrack

    How about spending every minute of everyday in severe debilitating pain. Slowly being eaten alive from the inside out. Having your body die off and stop functioning entirely milimeter by milimeter. Then one day lapsing into a coma and suffering multi-organ failure.

    I'll have every episode start with the Companion Cube falling through a portal onto the couch, and somehow it has to end with the Cube falling into an incinerator.

    Annoying Neighbour: I guess Companion Cube is in for a hot night!
