I started collecting games almost 4 years ago. First games were LOTR, SM, TSPP, IM and TSPP. All games that were finished and polished by the time I got them. I naively thought that was the norm.
Conversely, I was in on Xmen LE from the very beginning. That was hard slogging. Xmas "power pack" me in the a$$ code (Wolverine talking after every non-wolverine shot almost drove me to drink) and all. But I stuck through it and they delivered a great game. I love how they implemented Deadpool both for strategy and with his funny callouts.
Later picked up AV LE after a few code updates came out. Code was "done" early on, and it is pretty solid, but it sure could use some polish. Sort of a mailed in Lonnie effort IMO.
That soured my NIB purchases for a while. Eventually decided on a MET premium after playing the code update with the crank it up modes. I was sold as soon as I saw that update.
Because of my love for Borg games, my trust in Lyman's code, and the ability to play an LE and 1.19 code, I picked up a TWD LE on friday.
I don't mind WWE at all. Actually think that the LE looks great. But I won't be getting one any time soon as I am out of room and still feel like I need to see some solid code first before playing. If that means I miss out on an LE, so be it.
BUT having said that Tigerlaw, if you have the room and like the layout and the theme, I say go for it. My basis for that opinion is that Stern does EVENTUALLY "finish" coding for games. It just may take 1.5 years. Also, I think that Waison proved himself both in that he stuck with Xmen until it was done and he delivered a great game. As he is in on this, and allegedly is very into WWE, I think he will deliver in time. And hell, its only money right?
