Steam Daily Deal:
From Dust 66% off (£4.07)
Anyone played From Dust and have any opinions on it? It looks fun but I read a number of complaints about the controls and AI pathfinding.
I had this game on my wishlist until I realised that it required extra DRM in the form of Uplay. Researching Uplay and Dust revealed that many were unable to get the game to work. What wonderful DRM that prevents a purchaser from actually using the product they paid for. Ah GoG how I love thee <3
Same in my case. I did do a quick check and Play-Asia doesn't seem like a fraud site. Need to wait and see what will happen.
Google "play-asia fraud" and there is much evidence to the contrary. Codes not received. Codes not working. Physical products not working. Ridiculous shipping delays. Horrible customer service.
I'm sure they would have to do some legitimate business given how large their customer base is but I will certainly never use them again.
16 hours and no code or response from customer service. I wasn't aware that to dispute a charge on my card requires a lot of paperwork and up to 6 months to process, so I'll chalk this one up to a lesson learned and hope that I get a code or a refund. Caveat empor!
Edit: Customer service just responded with the following -
Sorry for the late reply. Please note that we do not work 24 hours and we answer on a first come first serve basis.
Moving on to your concern, we are sorry to inform you that the code for Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (Code Only) (PC CD-ROM Europe) was not in stock by the time you made the order. We now have to wait for the arrival of re-stocks before we can finally send the code to your email. We kindly ask for your patience in the meantime.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
I've asked them how long I can expect to wait for a code and how to initiate a refund process.
