Don't you just hate...

Wasting money on an app?

you know like you buy a game app or something for around 4~9$s and are like "either I get this or this" and just pick something totally crap?

Was looking at Necromancer Rising and Vangaurd (Square Enix) and both were 4.99. Well I chose Necromancer Rising and man is it pure crap. It's so slow, there's a few mini transaction places (ew), and the game has it's bugs. Geeze I feel like I wasted 5$s I could of used to just get a better game.

You guys?

Seriously? Necromancer Rising is better than Vanguard plus it's made by small team.

Agreed and posting negative comments about indie games may be hurtful to the feelings of the dev.

I myself have had quite a few instances where I feel I wasted money, and I understand the frustration. But are you telling him not to talk badly about a game because the dev' FEELINGS MAY BE HURT?!!?!!? that's absurd. I have no problem bad talking a game if I don't like it. Here we go: I think bumper stars is absolute crap! I don't care about "hurting the devs feelings." they put themselves into the most competative gaming market ever, if they don't produce a good game, they will get some bad reviews. If everyone didn't want to "hurt the devs feelings," there would never be any bad reviews. :P

Wow, it's made by a small team, that makes me enjoy the game so much more, and makes me feel much better about my purchase...

Who cares? If they didn't want their feelings to be hurt, they should have made a better game.
