Randy Pitchford just proves himself to be a joke of a human being saying that, his whole argument is precedented on his own voice saying "we never said the game was like that" when if you do a quick search on youtube you'll discover that the E3 footage that was highly used to sell the product at first instance was not in the finished product in fact there was no such trace of it ever being made for the game despite Pitchford himself saying the footage comes from the latter half of the second act or something like that (need to rewatch the footage again) which is directly saying this is in the game. It was used to advertise the game and the game didn't have it in the final product so to deny it being false advertising is utterly retarded when the evidence is plain for all to see. I mean they had all that time between the E3 footage and the game's release to say "the footage we showed you earlier is no longer in the game" they could have even have shown some actual footage but it seems they had so little faith in what they'd done that they didn't.
They sold a generic shooter with an Aliens mask I think we spent more time shooting Weyland Yutani personel than we did the title monster which became increasingly removed. I mean the promised footage from E3 was incredible that sold the game to pretty much everybody but we didn't get it and then Pitchford is surprised when people get angry with him. He knows he's guilty he even began blocking twitter users for saying they disliked the game even if it wasn't blaming him and just a simple statement of not being a fan of the game.To criticise the legal system from a viewpoint that holds no ground to do so is simply moronic. I know that legal system have their flaws (I work in that sector) but to say that people creating a lawsuit against him goes against justice is a f*cking joke.
I love how he thinks the justice system was bribed to hear the case because the claimants were using mafia tactics seriously what the f*ck? I appreciate I don't know every fact to do with the case but "mafia tactics" is he high? Rather than start bashing the people criticising him he should respect the criticism and work out what he was doing that was wrong, admit it (I know it's difficult for him) and work to right those wrongs. Randy Pitchford is a child who can't stand being told his creation sucks and thinks no one can say anything because his company created the successful Borderlands games which personally I'm not really a fan of but that's going off the point. I've read a load of stuff saying that Gearbox was pressured into the release and hadn't fully decided on the story when they released it.
Granted studio pressure is going to have a knock on effect but usually at that stage of development it probably won't affect that much of the finished product and more importantly given the amount of time Gearbox had been developing the game for and as it was building off a cancelled game but using similar mechanics and that cancelled game had produced footage itself I mean what was Pitchford and his team doing all this time? Sitting around and w*nking every time Bill Paxton said something funny in Aliens most likely. As you can probably tell I'm not too happy with Pitchford getting away with it nor am I impressed with the bullsh*t that spews from his mouth when he's criticised. The fact of the matter is whether he is CEO or whatever of Gearbox or not he should count himself lucky he still has a job following this.
Since the game released did not look close to the game in demos on release date the multiplayer is dead which was a very strong selling point for ACM.
You people charged full price for a game with no multiplayer or resemblance to the demo a game people waited ages on and have the balls to say "all it took was to stand up to them" its more like all it took was to "stand on TOP of them with a rich ass lawyer" that is all that is. At least tell it straight...nahh keep lying to keep your job and get promoted. Randy is like Burke from Aliens. lol this story is better than the one in the actual ACM game. lol at least people are giving this story more attention than the actual game. smmfh :- :- :-
at the end of the day the judges and court systems care less about gaming...let alone some nerdy ass broke gamer...of course gearbox with all the millions/billions of money will win in Americas court
when u lie like andy pitchford did and show a completely different game to the one that was shown and saying it was game footage the fanbase is bound to be angry and feel cheated it made me laugh when at first he said console couldn't handle it when the ps3 and x360 had games that looked and played a million times better like crysis for 1 and games like battlefield so to say it couldn't be done to me just seems lazy then the fact that gearbox outsourced the game and used the money from sega to fund another game how can randy say that the lawsuit has no merit for 1 the whole game was a lie.sega need to get a colonial marines game made from a developer that can deliver the goods to me avp 2010 was a decent game sega just ditched support to early for anything to be fixed
