Couple things I see missing:

Tarsis foot speed and addressing the 40K-200K coin startup issue where players seemingly random got something in the range at 40k increments. Being coin is cash, that to me matters. The difference is 2/3's of one Javelin Cash Shop model vs 3 and 1/3 models.

The run speed in Tarsis is so painful. I cancelled my preorder last night and that was a small part of the reason. That and the missions are all the same so far (run here, kill some dudes, stand in circle, rince repeat) and the story is underwhelming.

I got 40k coins as well. Figured it was a preorder special or something.

They bank on people forgetting to cancel their sub which unfortunately is math that works in their favor more often than not.

I signed up, then immediately unsubbed. I do the same in MMOs. No problem remembering in a month to cancel it.

And because one person has problems everyone will. /s

I kinda wonder if it's the crash issue other users are talking about (I have the same card). It's easy to see it as a crash since the system locks up, but you can get it back with control-alt-delete and then clicking the icon again. At any rate, I'm not too worried. I'll try again just before the 2 week time period is up. If it still has problems, I'll just refund it. Think I've only got 45 minutes or so played.

I read that you need to restart the game after changing graphics settings.
I'd also restart the computer at !east once while troubleshooting.

I haven't tried after a complete reboot, but I definitely restarted the game a few times. I'll have a look at the link. I could probably live with the stuttering, but the constant minimizing (and requiring control-alt-delete to get the mouse back) is another story.

Posted this in another comment section:

Metro needs more patches. Game crashes/minimizes every 30 - 90 seconds. I'm on a 1080ti running it on Steam. Clicking the icon puts it back in, but that's no way to play. Audio hitches. Game stutters a bit, despite the FPS counter sitting around 80 on High. I had it on Ultra but lowered it to see if it'd fix the crashing. Motion blur can't be turned off. Game not responding from time to time. *sigh* It's a shame. It looks like the story will be good, but not with all these problems.

Also, I pre-ordered it on Steam when it first showed up since I loved the previous two games. I think I'll have to set it aside for a bit (a year maybe, who knows) while they fix bugs.

I found the challenge of the bosses to not be much fun, and found running back to them to be annoying,

Same here. Wish it had a "you have failed on this boss fight a dozen times now, do you want ez mode?" I want to see the story and explore. I'd still give it 10/10 as well though.

People moving on to the next f2p flavor huh.

For a week.

With enough cosmetic sales in that week to fund the whole development of the game.

I think Steam did it somewhat well. Show a notice/warning if it appears to be receiving a review bomb. Outside of a bomb, the reviews aren't perfect, but they're better than nothing. I sure as shit won't trust a game without any reviews at all.

6. Players get stuck in downed state, same story, happens ALL the time.

Now that I think about it, I have seen this one a few times. Annoying as shit. Hasn't happened recently (not that I've played a ton recently), so I thought it had been fixed.

Still $47~ on GMG, I'm probably going to wait a bit for more of a price drop though.

Same here. Think I'll wait for a 50% off sale. There's some big games coming soon. Anthem, Division 2, Metro. I may even have to break out the console for Kingdom Hearts.

Working better this morning. Managed to do an entire mission without any problem. I played it solo (private mode), although the game pushes you to play multiplayer. Mech was fun to fly around in and hover. Felt like badass, until I ran in to a wall. I'm interested in seeing other mechs now.

Seems like it could be fun. Fix the walk speed in town though. Way too slow.

I really wanted to like Sunless Seas, but I feel like I was constantly spending all my money on supplies and not making any progress in the game itself. Makes me hesitant to try this one. I may wait for a sale. I want to see the story, but not have to grind supplies.

I never played the original. Is this more of a run-and-gun or sneak-and-don't-get-caught?

The demo launches but doesn't connect, as expected. However, it's opening on the wrong monitor. Hoping there's an option to force it to move. On that note, would be nice to have settings available even if the game isn't. Looking forward to trying it tomorrow.

It's not something I do, but if it's in the menu, it doesn't feel like cheating.

It's not in the menu though. If I understand the video, you have to tweak a bunch of driver configuration settings. Or run another little utility to set them for you. Sounds like cheating to me. Good riddance to them.

I just want some new Conquest Grand Operation maps. I let my sub expire, so now I have to decide if I want to buy/resubscribe/skip. Need some new games to release.

Edit: wrong map type
