I have to say, I think the progress looks pretty cool. Don't mind the haters, you guys have done some of the best work posted here so far, imo. Just in terms of animation quality and choice.
I will say, however, that I hope you guys don't get stuck in a developmental loop. I used to be a web designer, and one of the things that got me out of it was the fact that I never liked my own work. It's common knowledge that we're all our own worst critics, but sometimes that can get you stuck in this loop of unfinished work and reiteration where nothing ever gets done.
There needs to be a point where everyone agrees "this is good enough" and you start adding content, rather than continuing to remake systems that don't need remade.
Just my 2 cents...
