Hard to believe that kind of thing is posted because of the delay of a game.

I agree. People who are so easily upset have no business interacting with anyone online. I remember how Johan Andersson received a number of death threats because of the delay of some sort with a Paradox title--possibly Hearts of Iron III.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

Wow....saw this at another site, but didn't realize the passion for this game...if this is real and not some kind of publicity thing, disgusting that people have resorted to death threats to the developers and physical harm to journalists covering the delay.....its just a game.

The anonymity of the Internet drives all sorts of crazy and anti-social behavior.  You think anybody would post any of those things if their actual name and current town were required to post?

You can just google "Offensive comments to female sports journalists" if you want to watch a really powerful video on the topic...

Sadly, Facebook has proven this assumption to be false.
Even with their real names, photos and everything exposed, the idiots will still post things just as harsh.

Btw,
The game's previously planned release date was around June 23rd, just when the Steam Summer sale is rumored to begin (and will last into July), and the game has been suddenly delayed around the same time the rumor popped up, into August (well after the sale ends)...

So.. am I the only one who can't notice the coincidence (even if it's just a coincidence)?

Tpek, It wouldn't be on sale anyhow. New releases generally are at full price.  :coolsmiley:

Not sure why that would be related.....rumors started about the June sale in mid May and I am sure everyone knew there would be a sale around that time based on history.

It wouldn't.
But the Summer Sale would greatly impact the game's initial sales.

Releasing game around the same time Steam massively drops prices for almost all games, and the entire home page is dedicated to the sale,
makes this time a very poor candidate for releasing any game.

Am I missing something?
Why are there scores of people complaining on the Steam forum that the game will no longer have MP (and the store page doesn't list MP, only SP)?

Has something changed or am I just that underinformed about the game?

It was hyped to have MP based on developer videos.  But they actually never shown MP.
They specifically stated all payers exist in the same procedural generated world but will rarely be able to meet each other.
Maybe they realised they shouldn't meet each other in the end.
That said, I don't really follow this game so I may be wrong.

So how many people pre-ordered or plan to buy on release Monday?  I am still on the fence...haven't really found any cheap or good pre order deals to really buy right now and a little nervous on how it turns out.  But have to admit, a little excited based on hype....

Not going to lie, will be hard not to join the masses playing this next week...plus, I guess with Steam refund nowadays, not much risk...although if I do end up liking it, been a long time since I paid $60 for a game:)
