Especially sinse legaly EULA's don't hold any weight. (About the EULA saying they aren't guaranteeing uptime even in single player.)
I don't see how a EULA is legal when your not seeing it till your going to install the game or program. I've already paid for the product, and having me agree to the terms AFTER paying is just stupid. You have to read and sign a contract before you can get a loan to buy a house. The reason you have to sign it before you get the loan is so it can be legally binding. The state doesn't protect the bank if they try to get you to sign a contract after you get your loan. EULA is basically a contract isn't it? A contract signed after the fact, and not agreed to at the time of purchase or transfer. How is that even Binding?!
i agree with that when i gave up today i was thinking about how its legal that after we baught it that then we get no promise that we can even play this game... and no matter where you go theres no such thing as refund for any electronic product after being opened except to get a new copy of it due to damage or malfunction...
EULA's are very much legal, and are a legally binding agreement between you and the publisher that you agree, or disagree, with the terms set forth. If you hit that you agree with it and install the game,you accept every one of those terms and you're stuck with it, with no legal rights to complain.
Morally dubious, yes, but definitely legal. They may or may not hold up in court if you were serious about fighting it, but you'd probably end up paying a whole lot more in legal costs than you did to buy a game you may or may not be able to play.
Buying the game means diddly squat for the end user. At best it's only something between you and the reseller you bought it from, though most stores don't actually accept returns of PC games these days. If you buy it digitally... well, even the small chance of that goes out of the window.
Also, most EULA's can be found online before buying the game if you just look. For exammple, here's Diablo 3's: Link. So unfortunately, you're stuck on that point too.
