To delay it for months in order to "finish" would be a mistake.

Indeed.
Aurelian is right.
Dont delay tis. You can always relese big patch with bonus graphic and other stuff but delaying game becoze it isnt perfect isnt good idea.
Look at Duke. We wait and wait and wait.

Chill out Guys... I am confident that we will see the game in the coming week.

I have done this waiting game several times before on the Matrix site, and it is just a matter of keeping One's excitement under control. Matrix always keeps you really well informed, and also keeps us well supplied with eye-candy in the last weeks of the pre-release.

I usually use the last 'extra' week getting in Mrs Divepac's 'good-books', so that I can devoted my spare to the game when it is released, without consequences.

I think everyone is hoping that mate. Realistically, I reckon it'll be the end of the week, but the excited side of me is hoping beginning!

If it was going to be released on Monday I think Erik would have said so.  At this point I'm thinking end of the week or even the following week.  Which means I better not lose everything in Vegas next weekend.

I know that there is many people who want play this game now and I must say that waiting for this title make me uneasy.
Arghhh. Really I dont remember when I feel like that last time. Then I prey to the almighty gods of pc games: make it done and realese it!

If this game doesn't come out this week I'm afraid I will be forced to hijack an space luxury cruiser and use it as a meteor against your main offices!

*Just kidding*

But honestly, I haven't been this excited for a 4X game in quite some time, it's hard to keep ones excitement under control!

I'd assume US time, which means it could be anywhere between 7:45am and 10:45am atm. :(

Will add this game to my collection of space strategy games whenever it will come out.  I just hope that it will.  We don't get lots of real-time space strategy games in the market.

From replies in forum by Elliot & Erik, I have confidence that they will make a mediocre title into fantastic one over time.  I'm not afraid.  Regular support from these guys will make the game a great buy.  I'm also not afraid to pay for incremental improvement/upgrade over time either.  Bring it on.

I think it's a little unfair to call it a mediocre title before you've even played it.

What a strange thing to say before the game is released...and to say it with "confidence"?

Most games are "mediocre" upon initial release.  It it better to assume it as such to avoid your trashing the game later when it does not play to your liking.  The most important thing is the continuing support by developers and publishers.  How many "great" new IP, real time strategy PC games have you bought in the last 10 years.  Let me see: starcraft ...  The rest are just run of the mill, "consolized", dump-down games.  Again: CONTINUING SUPPORT is the main reason I buy a game.

From what I saw this game has it all to be good. Let's not get too excited however and wait patiently, what we need less is a rushed out the door product that needs to be heavilly patched. Need 2 more weeks, go ahead, we'll wait.
