Nexuiz will not even start - we should not stand for this as gamers!
I am well aware that THQ went under and they are liquidating their assets. This doesn't mean that a purchased video game should randonly shut down, and not even be playable. Even though this is a multi-player game, we could still fire up bot matches and enjoy what is left of the title while THQ and Illfonic sort out the business end. For some reason, this is not the case and the game will not launch at all, what so ever.

We should not stand for this as gamers! We all paid for this game in one way or another and deserve to be able to use the product and not have it "expire" on us, just because the mother company is having problems. I will be asking for a refund and you should too! Steam isn't responsible, but they did business with a company that left us and our money high and dry. Its not OUR fault.

Good Luck. THQ is gone and thats it. You won't get a refund.

Thank you, but its that attitude that will allow things like this to continue. The end user agreement was not met, because we have all paid for a product we can no longer use. Digital distribution has its downsides, big time.

what happened to dedicated severs... even obscure hl2 mods have some of them (like zomie master 1.2 )

i think the game not starting is a bug. like some connection issue causing a crash. I hope the devs will look into this.

Actually it is the game trying to contact the home server for the game and then shutting itself down.

You can still play games ect, but you have to DC from the internet or start in ofline mode.

I tested your theory, and unfortunately the game will not play period. Not even in offline mode. Its a complete wash and I am very ♥♥♥♥ed I cannot get my money back. This business model is not good for the consumer at all.

i believe rip-off is the phrase you were looking for or perhaps fraud...

I feel saddened for the fact that I can no longer play this game. I don't want to use workarounds to make this game run. I've had a LOT of fun with it, both Single-Player and Online.

If whoever bought Nexuiz intends to remake it or bring the "new" Nexuiz to it's former glory, it would be appreciated.

I too feel that we as consumers have been given a raw deal here. I paid good money to play this game and show off all the graphical bells and whistles to my companions. Looks like I just won't ever get to see that kitten map again. I want to play the game I purchased, not dig around on the Net for a hollow attempt at reviving a skeletal framework of what I paid good money to have access to. The game was beautiful, and now it sits on my hard drive collecting digital dustbunnies. I can't even run the game from the binary folder on my HDD. Yeah, it's cool that Xonotic exists and everything, I'm glad that if I feel the need to, I can indulge on some arena style fps action. But I want to indulge in what I have already paid for. Nexuiz had such potential, and it's truly unfortunate that the game hasn't made its way back into the public eye. Plenty of THQ assets got sold off to other developers, why not put this into the hands of a capable company and get it off of the damn ground? I don't buy games like CoD or Battlefield because I want that surreal FPS experience. The kind of "this could never happen but damn, wouldn't it be sweet?" vibe that can only be felt on games like UT '04 and Quake Arena and their subsequent ilk. Instead we get hallway shooters with admittedly huge graphical budgets and lovely fidelity and effects, but without the truly fantastical imaginative bonds that the aforementioned games forge so instantaneously with me when I start a game. And that's just sadness. I hope that Illphonic does get the rights back. Then I can finally engage in one of the ONLY games remaining in my library that even remotely pique my interest.
