    The whole event is disappointing, Ashes and it's impact on the genre - the far better game not being released last year because Ashes screwed the market is disappointing.

    I just don't like the gut reaction for people to start pestering editors/sites that say even the slightest thing negative, especially when I'd never heard of the website before.

    No the reason i stirred it up matt was because ,even that unknown site will have some loyal traffic... it may have a chance to cost a sale or two, atleast in short term, why leave it unnoticed while you can do something about it, something as simple as putting in a comment to let the author know he has got his facts wrong.

    Yeah, just got it today. Finally.

    Really, this just goes to show they had this ability all along to just get Steam to contact us directly and pro-actively months ago.

    Agreed.

    Like I said, keeping my collectors item as I can't get the cash back as promised.

    They will owe me $20 forever.

    I'm sure you could put $20 to good use on Steam, although having this piece of history on your computer might be worth that price alone :D.

    Yeah, logged in to check and there's a link under the game for a refund, so presumably clicking that makes money.

    I haven't seen anything that interests me in the Steam store...

    If you can confirm Table Top Cricket for Steam I'd click that link.

    There are probably a few kids who bought it because it was a cricket game but don't know about the refund.

    But if DBC14 fails (god forbid) you could sell your historical artifact in a few years and make millions.

    Age of Empires 2 HD is ?16 in the UK steam store, which is ?4 than AC13 ever was and much better. I know that it probably costs $eleventybillion in Australia, but its a very fun game that I sank years into as a kid, and can still today...

    Alternatively, football manager 14 is also a v. fun game, only much more expensive
