Yeah I have a problem with a game coming out with poorly done, basic code or incomplete code.
It's not just Stern though, Spooky released RZ (which I have) with code that was very lacking and many promises of it getting better. The new v20 code is a vast improvement, but still full of bugs. Spooky says they will be releasing more and fixing those bugs and adding more stuff in. The great part is they have pretty much committed to doing more releases so I'm hanging onto my RZ.
JJP released WOZ and TH early on with very incomplete code, but they made the commitment to do more and have done so.
The problem I see is Stern is releasing games with early code, and not committing to what will ever be added/completed. TWD code got much better. GB got much better, but it could use another release.
I'm guilt of getting on a list to buy SW Premium, but I do have to wonder if I want to pay for it and take delivery if the code isn't improved dramatically before then. I can't trust Stern to commit to future release.
I did purposely decided not to buy BM66 because of cost and code state, but I'm in the 'hope' camp for SW since I have money down on one. Hindsight I think I should have just waited on SW.
