I rather meant that it seems very late to open a steam shop only 6 days before release date. I would have thought it would generate a lot more interest if they had opened it say, 1 month before. Regardless of whether pre-ordering is allowed or not. I have been following the beta thread on the official site and it seems that the game is now pretty much bug-free and technically sound, but that there are issues with balancing and the seemingly poor AI. Lets hope they iron out those issues soon, although i think this game has the most potential in multiplayer and mod's, rather than the standard single player part of the game.
