I can't reconcile "didn't listen to the hype" and "don't care what was promised" with "I preordered the game" - if those had nothing to do with it, how'd you choose it to preorder? Dart board with all the upcoming games?
For my part, the promises that sold me on the game were:

1. Effectively infinite universe.
2. Procedural generation.
3. The ability to name things and upload to a central database.
4. The possibility that another player can find worlds you've been to and vice versa.

That's about it.

So while there may be lots of things the game promised and hasn't delivered on, those promises did not affect my decision making process. I don't even know what most of them are because, despite my participation in this thread, I have not been following the NMS hype machine.

As it is, I haven't had a chance to play it yet. It's waiting at home for me.
