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.
