They're not forcing anyone to buy it. Caveat emptor is something you should know before you spend a nickle on anything, especially online. If people are willing to take a risk and buy a product that isn't out yet and that has no specific release date then they take that reponsibility onto themselves. It's kinda unfair to imply that Runic is trying to pull a fast one when all they're doing is giving everyone who bugged them about a pre-order what they want.
Damned if they do, damned if they don't. As far as customer service goes...have they been slow to post updates and what not? Sure, they HAVE given us updates, tho. Small team spending time polishing the game. Do you want them to spend all their time on the forum, filling us in on every little detail while a myriad of details end up not being worked on as a result, extending production time even longer? And what about all the help they give people who have technical issues with the first game (despite it being three years on AND the fact that they're almost dont making a sequel that will probably blow it away)? Or the times they've helped modders, or the times they've given us sneak peaks at things, even tho they probably want to keep all this stuff close to the vest?
So yeah. Totally unfair. Lately people seem to be taking their spending a reasonable amount of time making a really great game and giving people who begged them to make the pre-order available as them trying to pull one over on us. Where is this coming from? They've done everything to show people that they're one of the good guys. Am I the only one who sees this and appreciates it? That they're not perfect but they're a damn sight better than most companies?
