The engine itself is quite basic indeed, but it shines in the blender side.
It supports armatures and shape keys calculated in GPU. I'm making tests to
see if I can support realtime subsurf.

That's the exact reasons I like it too. But I was very tired of the pain of
debugging logic bricks and I wanted something more, and for that reason I
used Gamekit for a long while, I did PyGamekit, been commiting improvements
to GK (I even did a script for converting GLSL materials to ESSL although I
didn't publish it) until I decided to make a new engine from scratch.
Especially since I started a Python-ish (dialect) to JS and C compiler
(with inferred typing, which is now evolving to a new language better
suited for realtime 3D dev).

if the BGE needs a re-write in some of it's core, to be "competitive"

Any new engine that is written to replace BGE seems to lack other
fundamental BGE features. I hope to solve that, though.

Also, it has now Oculus Rift and Razer Hydra support (and therefore the
upcoming Sixense STEM).
