Yeah, and there's only so much inXile can do with budget constraints. You know how much more work, and therefore money, getting into positions, elevations, targeting, etc. cost? You're talking at least another million here.
And his complaint about things like grenades being rare. A) It's the Wasteland. Things are supposed to be rare. B) It's a beta so they can tweak these sorts of things with feedback before release.
Guy seems to be expecting the world for a $15 game. This isn't an AAA title, guy.
I backed both Wasteland 2 and Banner Saga, although I'm not sure if I would if given the chance to redo my backing.
I thought Eurogamer did a good job with their preview of Wasteland 2. They were very reasonable (maybe too reasonable) in their expectations for the game. It is a beta, but only a very small part of the game is playable, which presumably means that there is still lots of work to do on the rest of the game.
Despite showing only a small part of the game, the areas shown aren't very impressive - small settlements and almost no one in them. I'm also very disappointed to read that the combat is so simplistic, that's a big part of the game.
