Ah, April 2015. Miles off.

Fun Fact: First purchase seems to be June 2009, Empire: Total War - Elite Units of the West.

How do you check when you bought it? O haven't played it since April 2016, but I do love this game. Even though I'm not that good :D.

Not especially 'whelmed' by this expansion announcement but some content is better than no content.

In the Steam client click on "Steam" then "Settings" (upper left). When the Settings window pops up, click "View Account Details" (upper right). When the "Account" windows pops up, click on the dollar amount shown for "Wallet Balance". Easy to find!  ::)

I'm showing that I purchased it in April 2013.  O0

It came to Steam after being available for a while via Squad's site itself.
So you might have bought it earlier than your Steam library shows, actually.

How do you check when you bought it?


If you got it direct from their site, then you should have a login for the "Store".  Where you can see when you purchased and (re)download the game.

I just checked at the Squad site. I paid $17.25 back in 2012.

It already feels like I've stolen it, probably the most play per $ of any game I've gotten. I can't believe they're still supporting this 5 years later.

Yeah I saw that - really weirds me out when a publisher that has no involvement in a successful games genre then go and buy that game. I mean, it's blatantly just for the money and franchise potential, which is fine, but literally anyone could have bought up that franchise. Why them?

I also worry what this will mean for KSP itself. Saying that, there have been rumours circulating that all was not well at Squad anyway, so maybe this was necessary to keep things running?

I think I may have asked this before, but can one have a reasonably good flight experience in this game without a joystick?

I'm going to be sans joystick, rudder pedals, and track IR for the forseeable future (their presence in the vicinity of my monitor would probably trigger a divorce).

I've tried flying in the demo but never had much success.  Is that because I'm not used to rockets, or because they don't work very well with a mouse?

(I'm asking this because Kerbal is on sale at a really good price right now).

I've never used a flight stick in KSP. So, yes.

Thanks, Jarhead.  It's good to know that you fly without a joystick, and that means I just need to put more time into learning how to control things.
