Quoted from Crile1:
It's looking like this thread will die on Tuesday when everyone goes nuts over the GOTG reveal (if the rumors are true). Nothing is going to change. Just look at the Batman 66 thread. Everyone was saying never again, then a code drop (over a year later and not even complete) and they are all back on board. No reason not to be happy to get code, but the Stern and Lyman love is back to full speed over there.
I think you are misreading the Batman 66 thread. Yes, everyone is excited that we got new code, and, to a lesser degree, that we have a general timetable for the next two updates. But I haven't seen anyone say - "Stern, all is forgiven. We have no problem buying GOTG or any other game sight unseen and regardless of code state".
I'm sure there will be some blind buyers of the next title, but hopefully there will be fewer and fewer until we see the direction referenced in the first post reversed.
