Ok, so todays rant starts yesterday.
Monday after work - goto game and buy Dawn Of War 2. YAY Happy happy happy Ronin.
Go home and install game only to fail at the serial number. It's wrong. Ok Im having a moment I expect as I have been gagging to play this game for over the last few months. Ok Roger comes in and says that the o is a 0. And then the message appears!
This account is is use by another steam user!
OMFG WHAT PARDON hits the side of teh screen.
So, I go into Game today and the following happens.
T = Thom = Ronin
G = Game ID10T Error
G2 = His buddy.
T: “OK, I am not a happy customer, do you understand that?”
G: Confused look, and looks new.
T: “Right, now when I buy a game from here it is sealed is it not?”
G: “Um, yea.”
T: “OK, so when it has a security seal sticker TWICE around the box, what does that mean to you?”
G: Confused look again.
T: “Ok let me explain my issue, I open up the box, and see that there is some writing on my Manual, and also the key that I enter during install tells me that someone has already used this game. Do you think that you may have sold me a preowned game?”
T: “Did you know that this game is NOT allowed to be returned to a shop due to the licence laws set by THQ?”
G: Starting to look a little worried.
T: “You see the one there,” *Looking all shiny and in its rapper. “Pass me that one and I will give you back your invalid game that you sold me.”
G: *Looks towards another member of staff.
G2: Shruggs, nods, in a thought of [“I don’t know”]
G: Takes key and get out another copy from the cabinet and passes me the shiny box.
T: Walks out the store happy bunny, itching to now wait for the end of work to play a game. [ Again ]
