On Refunds, Co-op and Story Modes

So yesterday was an interesting day gaming wise that started off trying to do some co-op and ended with playing the new story mode for Street Fighter 5. So, when having a specific person that you play co-op games with it can be a bit difficult to find a game that you’re both going to enjoy.
