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!
Let me get it out of the way that I try to avoid eBay. I find that I don't usually feel good after I shop there. This story is a good example of why.
I wanted Fatal Frame III for PS2 but could not find it anywhere. Seeing as it still sells for around new retail as used on eBay I decided to wait for a Canadian auction to come up and jump on it. You can see the auction here:
I was really pleased to see very reasonable shipping on this auction, too. The game arrived promptly, and the only instructions included are in French.
I've emailed the seller as follows:
The instructions included in Fatal Frame III are only in french. Is this an accidental omission? If these are the only instructions available that certainly would warrant mentioning in the auction description.
Let me know,
I am awaiting their reply.
So, how should I be thinking about this? The product isn't exactly as advertised, but enough to complain about? I can get buy without instructions, but this doesn't feel like I should be leaving positive feedback as is. Should I be asking for a concession from the seller, say $10 of refund?
I've no idea what kind of response is commensurate with this sort of issue.
