I must say I'm disappointed. I haven't really played a game in about 6 months now. I bought ToW, thought it was a great concept that was never fully realized, and basically shelved it. Then ToF came along, and since it had a discount for ToW owners and looked like it was what the original should have been, I swallowed my apprehensions and bought it. That was last December. Won't go into the various issues--some consider them "game breaking" and some not-- but never felt like I ever had a "finished" game. Two comparisons come to mind:
- When you keep taking your car to the shop for a repair, and they do it but but keep leaving something out so you have to go back again and again and again. You can still drive the car, but that's not the point.
- The credit card commercial with "Peggy", where he says about the flashing phone lights "So pretty!" This game is GORGEOUS in my opinion, but ultimately it doesn't matter if there are so many "bugs" in gameplay (supply, combat, movement, etc.)
And now the fixes are delayed even more while an issue with Win 8 for another game is sorted out. I understand, but I have essentially been waiting a YEAR to play this (TWO YEARS if you count ToW), and soon I'm just not going to care anymore. Nor am I likely to buy another Wastelands game until it's been out for awhile and thoroughly reported on by the community. I'm not angry or disgusted or anything like that, just sad.
