Australian Consumer Commission Taking Valve To Court Over Steam No-Refund Policy

Written by Katie Allen on 29 August 2014 at 12:45

Steam’s refund policy - or rather lack thereof - is pretty well known. The digital distribution platform does not give refunds on post-launch purchases except under exceptional circumstances, and Valve’s official policy on the matter is that refunds are simply not an option.

Unfortunately for Valve, however, this might mean they are contravening Australian law. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commissions is taking Valve to court this fall, arguing that the law applies to all businesses providing goods and services within Australia even if the company doing so has no physical presence there, as is the case with Valve.

We know Saints Row developer Volition is preparing to announce its new project, which from the looks of it is most definitely a Saints Row V. This time around though things look to be taking a horror twist, with the Ouija board and Saints Row fleurs-de-lis logo emblazoned with ‘666’, suggesting things could be getting even crazier in Steelport.  [More]

Assassins Creed Unity Faces Short Delay, Ubisoft Confirms

Written by Katie Allen on 28 August 2014 at 17:30

Is there any game these days that doesn’t get delayed? It seems all the titles on our radar right now, from The Witcher 3 to The Division to Batman: Arkham Knight are getting pushed back faster than you can say “pre-order”.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is the latest in line to face a delay; Ubisoft confirmed this afternoon that the previous October 28th release date would no longer be kept to. The good news is that the delay will be significantly less than we’ve seen for several titles this year, but it does also mean you’ll have to wait until November to get your hands on this title… [More]

Rumour: Grand Theft Auto V Remaster May Not Be Out Until 2015

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 August 2014 at 17:00

Rumours are circling that the next-gen remaster of Grand Theft Auto V on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One may be delayed until 2015. The reports come via a YouTube video posted by HalcyonDeathSquad claiming that PR representatives and retailers in attendance at Gamescom 2014 were told that GTA V wouldn’t be seeing the light of day this year.

Since we first had a sneaky glimpse of the Grand Theft Auto V remaster at E3 2014 we have seen neither hide nor hair of Rockstar’s masterpiece, with it being a surprise no-show at Gamescom. Originally pencilled in for a Q3 2014 release, behind closed doors there are murmurings that it may not be ready, with Rockstar instead keen to ensure the final product really blows everyone away when it finally arrives.

Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Tactics Trailer Highlights New Supply Drops

Written by Jon Sutton on 28 August 2014 at 15:45

We already know that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be straying from the norm of the franchise somewhat more than usual, but a new multiplayer gameplay video reveals CoD:AW’s supply drop mechanic and how it’s going to be used to gain new weapons, abilities and customisation options for its multiplayer mode.

Rather than relying solely on the levelling treadmill seen in the series since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will introduce the ability to gain additional unlocks through randomised supply drops and additional challenges. Sledgehammer’s aim with this is to make multiplayer progress more diverse for gamers. [More]

GOG.com Gets Redesign And Adds Support For Region-Free Movies

Written by Jon Sutton on 28 August 2014 at 14:30

GOG.com has had a smart new facelift, as well as expanding its online catalog of DRM-free content to included a selection of video content. Don’t worry though, your games still sit on that nifty looking bookcase for your perusal.

While traditionally known for its impressive library of erm.. good old games, the online distributor is making inroads into Steam territory as of late, seemingly ramping up to the release of owner CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt early next year. Along with the site redesign and new content, the GOG Galaxy client is currently being beta tested, which will act as a new storefront and method of software delivery with social network features.

Quake Live Gets Huge Update Ahead Of Steam Launch, But The Fans Are Not Happy

Written by Neil Soutter on 28 August 2014 at 13:15

Quake Live has had a massive update ahead of its imminent launch on Steam, bringing in a raft of changes and improvements to the classic Quake III Arena formula. But, and there’s always a but, the fans aren't happy, with many outraged at the alterations occurring to id Software’s beloved shooter.

Among other things players can now automatically bunny hop, choose weapon loadouts, all friendly fire has been disable, and even method for automatic strafing has been added. If there’s one thing worse than no change for gamers then it’s change though, and longtime fans of the game are pretty miffed that id is making some fundamental changes to the base Quake Live gameplay.

Multiplayer Trailer For Dragon Age: Inquisition Reveals 2014s Answer To Diablo

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 August 2014 at 12:00

BioWare has release the first gameplay trailer of its upcoming co-operative multiplayer mode included in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Revealed just yesterday, the new multiplayer mode allows you and up to three other people to roam huge randomly generated maps, fighting off all manner of beasties in bitesized half-hour sessions.
