I agree with that…

But this judgement seems a bit hasty to me. I think in the Last 2 months they
were severely overworked, "whipped" on by a publisher anxious to get some
market penetration before the holidays (and present some good results for the
end of the Fiscal quarter). I doubt that the game in this state is what they had
in mind to release. Why squander 3 1/2 years of hard work just to avoid 1-2
months of bugfixing and playtesting… ? I am sure that they are working on the
various issues right now and they cant be having a very good time of it. But if
they wanted to take some time off after the release I would understand that too
despite all my whining for a speedy patch in every post I make

Or perhaps its just programmer empathy/sympathy I feel
