Properly New Mount and Blade Warband!

Being made by successful mod team behind Brytenwalda, this new DLC 'Viking Conquest' features, as one might expect, Vikings. As we all know, everything from childrens' birthday parties to pillaging monasteries are better with vikings and so this game should be M&B Warband: Better Edition.

Should be pretty good. Brytenwalda was exceptional quality.

So, I'm pretty sure we all know about the upcoming Viking expansion for Warband, and recently (Today/Yesterday/Tomorrow/A few days ago) there was released a gameplay video for it. One thing that looks simply amazing about this is the sea combat. It looks to me like the ships may be drivable, and with storms and moving waves as well as sea to land battles... well, lets just say I was at first a bit dubious about it, but now I'm looking forward to it just as much as Bannerlord!

It's terrible practice for the industry. Some new releases are being rushed out the door asap, chucked on steam with a release date in a few months and then gamers get a product which is either lazily constructed and terrible (Alien: Colonial Marines) or sometimes doesn't even work or are blatantly falsely advertised (War Z). This is further compounded by the ridiculous practice of review embargoes which has led to games like Aliens: Colonial Marines being bought when if anyone was allowed to review it using a review copy of the game, then we would have known what a portugalup it was beforehand. I didn't buy it because of my hate of preorders but I have seen the furore of the internet and despair.

Well, fingers crossed that the Brytenwalda team and Taleworlds won't do that. Even if they do we can expect many patches and bug fixes from the Brytenwalda team for weeks to come after release.

That's my point exactly Khan, you just have to hope. Granted Brytenwalda/Taleworlds have a great rep and will almost certainly release the game in a decent fashion and patch it after release, but I'd rather be certain than almost certain. Waiting until review copies are out and people are playing the game in a finished state is just sensible.

Maybe, but it'll be more expansive, and even if you buy it now, you'll be saving money. By no means do you have to play it straight away, you can buy it and wait for reviews. It's not even that expensive.

You're only saving money if you like the game :P

Buying it and then waiting on reviews seems kind of pointless really, why not just wait for reviews then buy it? Like in the Christmas sale or something :)

It's also not about the actual cost but about promoting bad business practices for the consumer I have a problem with. I hate that pre-orders have become the norm, and I especially hate it when companies add a dlc incentive to buy the game early. I hate it even more when there are different dlc incentives from different retailers (bioware/activision/EA seem to be the main culprits here) because then you can't even get the complete game.
