I know there is a lot that can go wrong with games and I'm trying to be understanding, but a lot of people can not even open the game, I feel like this is something you check before releasing the game. I know I am weird but when I pay near 30$ for a game I kinda expect that it will work when I push the play button...Now I have to wait til almost October for my new computer to arrive and hope it works on that one. Man I was gonna have a great night playing SOMA and now it has been an hour and a half scouring the internet trying everything possible to get the game to work with no luck, night completely ruined.
