    Users tried to get a refund on the game No Man's Sky, and many got a full refund, even though they played the game for over 2 hours. This is most likely because of the negative reviews the game recieved, and how many players are dissapointed with the game. If you bought it on steam, and you don't like it, try to get a refund. If it doesn't work try again

    All I have to say is ouch.

    The blunder of the fucking year. I knew that it was going to be shit right at the moment that it got announced, but this is a bit too much.

    If we are honest then they knew the quality and most likely how it would turn out

    Man, if this doesn't scream "commercial failure", I don't know what does.

    They'll still make a bucketload from PS4 sales though.

    And this is an example of how, even if you hype your game up as much as possible and show awesome trailers and everyone is queuing to buy it, if you don't deliver in the end, you'll pay the price.
    Hard.

    It's Mighty No. 9 all over again, even though the game was delayed it feels incomplete and rushed

    Between insane and insecure
    Today I refer to this quote
    -Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw
    I assumed the game wasn't going to live up to the hype and delays and just assumed it would be shit before it even came out. It came out, it was shit, I continue to live happy knowing I was right to begin with.
    If it was good, then I am happily surprised to have a good game.

    I don't think Mighty Number 9 is bad. People just expected too much

    I never said it was bad, I was just comparing it to No Man's Sky

    Well, Mighty Number 9 is not full priced like No Man's Sky.

    I imagine a lot of the rancour could have been avoided if they released this 10 dollar game for 10 dollars.
