Well, I pre-ordered this game what seems like years ago. The technology looked outstanding and the alpha, while empty, impressed me with its performance and the destructible terrain. It was released yesterday, and while there is a story and AI and missions now, the performance actually seems worse than during alpha and the release is buggier than any I've seen in a while. So, this thread is starting out pretty negatively: this game should not have been released yesterday. It needs at LEAST a few more months of bug squashing. The bugs I've encountered: the game only uses 1 core at the moment, meaning it runs like ass if anything is happening. The game seems to not recognize movement keys for your ship, though other buttons work, meaning you can't move at all. That's a game-breaking bug, obviously, and while the developers have known about it for a while (as is true about the single core issue), it is still not fixed. So, enjoy!
