It's received a ton of hype though and I feel I need to cover it, couldn't get a review copy so I bought it.

I think it is very well done for the young age of this new type of boardgaming and it has many people on BGG happy with it, I (and other posts on BGG) just don't think their 'open information' design is compatible with a competitive game mode.

Babylonia is basically Blue Lagoon 2. Blue Lagoon is great, but I got rid of it and Babylonia for the same reason. I already have Through The Desert, Samurai and Tigris and Euphrates and Stephenson's Rocket. Do I need another Knizia tile laying game that is basically a mashup of mechanics from games that I already have and love and don't get to the table enough, even if it's a nice solid iterative design? They're both well worth playing and extremely enjoyable though.

I found a used copy of Vaccarino's Greed (thanks to the short games article. I love crime games like Nostra City, and After Pablo so this is a welcome addition.

Speak of the devil, cardhaus has this back in stock. Presumably a wider restock will happen soon, but hey I bought it. My wife loves hidden object games and puzzly crime stuff, it's like this was made for her.
