Now all they need is a flux capacitor, and then they can... oh wait...
...welcome our new benevolent bouncy flying rulers.
You forgot to innovate...
I used to be a developer like you. Then I took an arrow to the vagina.
My first time running the game was met with a crash to desktop. After installing updated drivers and getting past the new game intro video, the game would pause for 3 seconds, run for two, over and over. I disconnected my web cam which the game was mysteriously turning on and the pause went away, but I still have texture tearing and popping with a short pause about every 6 seconds or so. Forums are packed with similar tales of woe. My advice would be to cancel the pre-order and wait out the patch cycle to see if the issues are resolved. It turns out that the items you get with the pre-order are very ho-hum. I now very much wish I hadn't pre-ordered it, and I think I have finally learned my lesson.
