I'm completely fine with delays. Working in IT I can completely understand how things get off schedule. But when things are delayed and then still released in a bad state, that's when things get very concerning.
I am sometimes disappointed when a game is delayed, but in a lot of cases when one game is delayed, I normally pick up another game i might not have been paying much attention to and it turns out to be great. So in a lot of cases, delays do not bother me at all. As others have said, release a good, fun, stable product and not one that requires constant patching to fix.
It was very sad to hear this news over the weekend. I had the urge to pull my Odyssey 2 out to see if I could still get that thing to work. It was my first console as a kid and back then things were so different.
Picked this game up with my new GTX 970 card which should be here tomorrow. Probably won't have much time till the weekend to play but add me to your crew. I played the beta for this and thought it was ok and I'm hoping that being able to do more stuff with a crew will add more to the game.
I've been using BeyondPod since I switched to Android years ago. Paid for it and really liked it until the last huge update which completely changed the interface. It's still good, just took a while to get used to the new UI. I've considered switching to Doggcatcher as that was the other good one I've heard about on Android but I just haven't pulled the trigger yet.
I think I'd like to know a little more about this game before I pass final judgement. I like to play and experience all sort of games, so I may have to try this just to see how if feels to play it. I am guessing once you get into the game, it isn't going to feel any different than GTA, Saints Row or Hotline Miami or any other game similar to them.
When they did the update to 8.1 it fixed a few of the flaws that alot of people really had issues with. With the hardware you have, you may actually see a small performance increase by going to 8.1. I made the switch to 8.1 when I picked up an SSD last year and I couldn't be happier.
