The said the BETA would be out by the end of the winter season
thats a recent statement, not what was before.
earlier it was "late december, early january".
If 50 dollars is a lot of money to you, you need to not be buying games, and save some money so that you can be in the situation where spending 50, 100, 1000, dollars is not a big deal
you have a gross misunderstanding of money then.
either that or your overtly pampered. 50$ is up to 20 hours of work for some people, talk about the true value of money.
Constant bickering about when it will be out and why its not out, will only tick off the people making it, I know it would tick me off it I was them.
you think they haven't learned to ignore this post by now?
hah... like they would bother coming in here.
I don't get this, "Why release something that isn't ready." It's a beta, it's going to be far from ready anyway.
finally hidden rabbit, someone who understands.
You should be thanking them that they are even making this game.
I would thank it if it didn't cost me 50$ 6 months in advance. that forces me to drop to the level of "being thankful, but very whiny"
The customer is dependent 100% on the product owner (Ironclad/Stardock) for this game
the developers are wholly dependant on the customers, either that or they live on the street. thats why the customers always right, because there are plenty of other buisnesses waiting for my buck.
Perfect example of this is Studio Gigante, they released Wrestlemania 21 for the Xbox a year or two ago, and it was a huge flop, they didn't listen to the people reviewing the game and giving suggestions. After releasing 1 half-arse patch to fix the broken and unplayable multi-player aspect of the game they went out of business.
for us. they should allow us to snap up the beta, rip it appart, and then fix the bugs.
in the end catching bugs is all about sandboxing, and getting more people to sit in the sand will find you more of the bugs.
