Ashes Cricket 2013 is — oddly enough — a cricket videogame, released on Steam. Reportedly, it’s a big ol’ piece of heaving crap.
Who says so? The publisher, who cancelled the game, pulled it from Steam, apologized to basically everyone on the planet, and is refunding people’s money.
That’s a real class act: recognizing your mistakes, and making good on it. Good job, guys.
And here’s my own little anecdote on publisher virtue: I bought the Collector’s Edition of GTA V on the Xbox. My Xbox died, and I bought a PS3-GTA V bundle. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any Collector’s Edition content. So I emailed them and asked politely. After a long while, they sent me a PSN store code for the Collector’s Edition content.
Did they have to? Nope. Could you criticize them if they didn’t? Nope. But they did it anyway, earning my admiration for their willingness to help a customer out.
