I figured this was going to turn into a NMS appreciation thread. To continue improving the game this far out after all the launch shit went down is truly impressive. I don't have the game or plan to buy it, but can't stand how horribly entitled gamers can be... those guys didn't deserve the level of backlash they got.
LOL no. For them to turn the game into something like what they promised in the first place is not "truly impressive". They made a shit load of money off the hype, much of it undeserved. The least they can do is turn it into something worth playing, especially if they hope to have a future in the industry.
Yes, they did deserve the backlash they got. No, not death threats or anything ridiculous like that but most people weren't doing that anyway. Most of the criticisms and frustration were centered around the actual game or lack thereof. Shit I have a fully patched up copy and it is still a pretty mediocre game, it just looks better compared to the hilarious first year.
No game developer ever deserves death threats and bomb threats and that level of bullshit, but the initial backlash over his blatant, flat-out LIES were completely justified. Murray lied about this game up until the day of release. (edit: Someone already said that and you already replied to it. My bad!)
So, sure, on the one hand we can say that it's cool that they have "continued to support the game". On the flipside we can say, hey, after two years, it's finally the game they promised it would be on release.
Had Murray & Co run after release, they would have had quite a bit of trouble ever finding a lot of buyers for their next game, methinks.
All that said, I gotta admit that the last video they released actually looks pretty interesting. When it goes on sale again, I may bite.
Fucking exactly, thank you.
