Yes, I know this is technically a Game Room topic. But I’m really pissed.
Months ago, I bought Shadowrun Returns as I really, really wanted to play it (this isn’t rocket science here). Yes, it’s a pretty good game alright and was well-received all around. There’s only one small, tiny problem.
IT DOESN’T WORK!
The list of bugs is incredibly depressing, to the point where one really doubts the good sense of the developers given the sheer number and variety of game killing bugs, let alone the various broken systems and a few bad design decisions. The developers, of course, did what all professional game developers do when these things happen: take the money and give a giant middle finger to their paying customers.
Sure, the motherfucking assholes at Harebrained Schemes managed to muster a patch or two… which added a pile of new bugs while doing nothing to fix most of the issues. Not that it stopped them from starting work on a goddamn expansion pack. Note that their major response to a bug report is as follows: (1) Oh, that broke your game? Well don’t do that. (2) Oh, we broke the game? Oh well, just be patient. I’m sure we’ll get to it one of these months.
So let me give you goddamned filth-spewing shitfaced bitches a lesson in software development. First off, you don’t use technology you don’t fucking understand. And it’s damn clear you have no idea how to use Unity. Fun fact, I have several Unity Engine games. But the only one which complete fucked up in this manner is Shadowrun Returns. And the reason is probably that you didn’t fucking test it, since your plan was to get your hands on it, stuff it into your game, and release a major engine update without any testing. And I know you didn’t fucking test it because people reported major bugs that you still haven’t fixed. So no, I don’t accept that you’re “too small” to properly test your software because you had every warning. The only thing too small was your good sense.
In short, fuck you, you thieving jerkasses. Don’t buy anything these people make, because they’re lazy motherfuckers who should be boiled alive in their own feces. I’ll count the money I paid a wise investment to you know you care jack-fucking-squat about your customers, so I’ll never make this mistake again.
