I can grab a copy on the discount bin pretty cheap.
The game sounds great and I know they are releasing a new title (same game), but I am a penny pincher.
$5 vs $40 is a big difference. If I like the old game I can invest in the new version later.
I have looked throough the forum and am impressed with the player based community support, but for the life of me I can't find a link to any patches.
My only reason for holding off is because I want to know the patches are available and just as important that they fixed the worst of the problems.
