I was a $100 backer, mostly because I spent so much time with Wasteland and the BT series back in the day. I struggled with the difficulty of the original release, and consoled myself with the thought that the game was being true to its heritage. So I waited. When the Director's Cut came out, I started over, and got wiped -- hard -- on my very first random encounter in the desert. I haven't played since. It's just not balanced well. It has made me sad that I never finished a game which I paid that much money for, but I see I'm not alone in finding it un-fun. I'm intrigued about the Nexus mods. I may have to check out that scene.
