Submission + - Stardock CEO Falters on Gamers Bill of Rights (demigodthegame.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Stardock CEO Brad Wardell, the creator of the self-proclaimed "Gamer Bill of Rights", is faltering with their own community over their new release of the game DemiGod. Plagued with connectivity issues and problems the publisher is offering some refunds but has grown increasingly agitated with their own community. Their 10 principles in the Gamer Bill of Rights seems in direct conflict as back in August they proclaimed: "Gamers shall have the right to demand that games be released in a finished state" and "Gamers shall have the right to return games that don't work with their computers for a full refund" now seem neglected and more like a publicity stunt. Their CEO, Brad Wardell aka Frogboy, has told their gaming community when a recent disgruntled user pointed out the problems playing the game or trying to get refunds, "Anyone who feels that what the person wrote above was justified should leave now and vow never to purchase anything from Stardock again. That way, the process becomes self-selective." In addition, the Stardock CEO has taken the harsh measure of punishing any gamer who posts disparaging remarks about the problems with their game by banning them from their forums as well as the game with no recourse.
