Having bought temple of elemental evil after following the game through development and reading a good review from gamespy, i was disappionted by the amount of bugs that were blatently obvious. Now i didn't take the game back because there was mention of a 1st patch, this didn't really address many bugs but a second was due for release, which by now i can' take the game back and eagerly (but very annoyed) await a 2nd patch. Now vampires looks pretty darn good, but are we going to be done again? How well is this project going timewise, is there going to be extensive QA? My faith in troika is a non starter, i would love to pre order this game to play asap, but having been burned once i may just 6 months after release and see how other gamers reguard it. Does troika have the freedom to release their own patches rather than going through the "publisher"?
