The patch is available automatically through Steam, and the news of new version is accompanied by word on plans to release new DLC for the game "shortly," saying: "Now another particular type of weather forecast: all the shading is turning red.

I've never even finished the demo, maybe I should give it another try. I've never played any of the previous JA games and this one just sort of overwhelmed me with the amount of options and things you have to do to micro manage your squad.

Looks like a lot of good changes. I wonder if they'll have an updated demo. When I tried the previous demo, it seemed that the only way to win was to engage from maximum range with rifles and just try to pick them all off as they came toward you. Stealth was basically useless because they could spot you extremely easily, and they were much better shots than they should be with their weapons in automatic fire mode. Made the game seem terribly boring. Nothing like JA2. Hard to tell whether the AI has actually been fixed or not.

Yes there are times when I think a developer/publisher releasing a bad/buggy/unfinished game causes long term rep damage. But their post-release support here has been great and I think they've redeemed themselves. A company's value is more than what's in the bank or short/medium term projected sales.

I didn't realise until I read through the patch notes how good this patch sounds. It seems to have addressed all the bugbears I can remember being raised. Unfortunately I haven't played JA:BiA for a while now, so it will have to get behind Warlock.
