I do have two "copies", one for Xbox (preordered the crazy-deluxe edition, because of course I would) and one on Steam. :P

It's remarkable how the merchandise for Colonial Marines is better than the game, and still keeps coming out to this day for some reason. The power loader statue that came with the deluxe edition is pretty great, and Hiya Toys just released action figures for the Crusher and Raven Alien, and they're excellent.

I wonder if they will make it backwards compatible if it the merchandise is still be released. Although I can't see them doing it, only the more popular games seem to be getting BC for the one.

Satan. I mean Randy Pitchfork...I mean...

In all seriousness, A:CM is like a burger from that nasty local place you try to avoid. After a year, you find yourself in need of a quick meal and you think "hey, I mean, it's still a burger, maybe I was just in the wrong mood last time". Then you grab one, and two bites into it you remember just how sh*tty it was...and still is.

It's not outright "bad" so much as it's "disappointing", doesn't live up to the hype in any way (but honestly I don't think it could have), and is wildly inconsistent from a design standpoint because it uses a lot of dated humor, tries to mash together 90s design sensibilities with modern FPS designs and it doesn't gel well (as opposed to Doom 2016, which absolutely nails it), and lacks a lot of polish.

I still had some fun with the game and I'd say it's worth a play-through just to experience it.
I did get a kick out of the DLC because it resurrects the bad guy from the original Duke Nukem 2D platformer games, which was a fun callback.

Randy Pitchford is interviewed in a YouTube doc about Half-Life fandom that dropped yesterday. (Gearbox got their start making expansions and ports for the first Half-Life.)

Nothing about A:CM or Borderlands in there, but just in case anyone is in the mood for some Randiness...

Title: Re: A Public Apology To Randy Pitchford
Post by: Vertigo on Dec 14, 2018, 09:27:00 PM
I don't think he had anything to do with HL2 did he? Gearbox developed Opposing Force, Blue Shift, Decay, the HL1 console ports and most of Condition Zero, but as far as I know Valve did the whole second generation in-house.

Opposing Force is a cool expansion pack, but Colonial Marines was a full game. I think he's still got some way to go to balance his karma.

Borderlands 3 is an easy pass for me and not just because Gearbox is making it. I'm not a real big fan of "random loot" games, and especially not "loot shooters" like Borderlands, The Division, Destiny, etc.

If they made another Alien game (somehow), I'd buy and play it because if I don't, the surgically-implanted bomb at the base of my skull would go off.

It's the same bomb that beeps any time a new piece of Alien media is released, among other unrelated fandoms.

With rare exceptions (Atari Jaguar), I try to get consoles if there's more than one or two games for it that I care about. I've contemplated a PC Engine/Turbographix 16 but I can't think of enough games I'd want for it, and I'd get a 3DO for the Doom port (it's the one official Doom port I'm missing) but the 3DO is expensive enough as it is, and getting it for one game feels like a waste.

I mean I could go bonkers and get a lot of old stuff like a Fairchild Channel F, Magnavox Odyssey II, Vectrex, etc, but I don't buy consoles just to say I have them.

So I came across this today.

"Gearbox Software's former lawyer is suing the developer and CEO over a supposed secret $12 million bonus given to Randy Pitchford. Gearbox Software has been at the center of quite a few legal disputes over the last decade, whether it be from falsely advertising Aliens: Colonial Marines or fighting for control of the Duke Nukem IP from 3D Realms. That being said, a brand new lawsuit that was recently ousted by Kotaku and it involves Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford being sued for taking a supposed $12 million secret bonus."

A rush to judgment? On the internet? No way.

Without having read the filings yet, and just going on what Jason has reported here, I tend to have trouble believing the child pornography allegation. First, as Gearbox's lawyer, Callendar's duty was to protect Gearbox, not Pitchford. He alleges he had information about child exploitation that could severely damage the company's reputation (and ultimately, sales). He did nothing about it, but instead decided to keep it in his back pocket until it became useful to him?

Second, aside from his obligation to protect the company, what about the moral obligation of reporting a crime against children? Did he not do so because he was not sure that the photos belonged to Pitchford, or because he was protecting his friend? If it's the former, the allegation is probably untrue. If it's the latter, he's at the very least complicit in the abuse of these children.

Now having read the pleadings, it seems to me the allegation is, among other things, aimed at removing the cap on punitive damages. Under Texas law, damages are capped unless you can prove certain things, such as a violation of the Texas Penal Code Section 21.02 (continuous sexual abuse of young child or children).

Indeed they are. Regardless of how I feel about the man, he still deserves to be assumed "innocent until proven guilty" before the law. The police will determine whether or not there is any validity to these accusations.

That being said, the magic business is a p*ss poor excuse. It's borderline childish, and it makes me wonder.

It must be like 5 dollars on steam, you won't know until you try it yourself. And play it with Templar's mod.

Playing ACM with Templar for the first time without any expectations would probably be fun for most gamers.

Heck I'm playing it right now and just for how much Templar improved the aliens bots I'm digging purely for the challenge, those claws can kill you fast now. Shooting aliens is more fun than people so for me its better than most FPS. And V6 is coming, he is going to improve the AI more and increase the acid damage.

So you actually bought ACM. AVP 2010 was fun but didn't come close to what it could have been.

You should try AVP Classic and AVP2, they gave birth to the AVP online community, the average laptop can probably run them fine considering how old they are. 

Isolation can be played on 360.

Its a computer only game, if a remaster would ever come, and it won't sadly, it would be for steam only I guess. I don't care much for graphics, so I think the game is fine but there are mods to improve looks, its from 2001 so any computer can run it. Its available on AVP Unknown.

Suprised you never ran into any of these games during the last decades.

Mobile games aren't my thing.  ;)


PC gaming never took off for me because my family was running tech that didn't meet most requirements at the time. By the time we did, I could never find a copy, and my cousin made it out to just be a multiplayer affair. So I passed on it.

Then came the days of drm, and limited installs, and having to be connected to the internet constantly to play single player. I naturally preferred being able to pop a disc in and just play it. So console kept my heart.

Though I did play the fire out of doom 3, gears of war, pvz1, and cod4 on pc.

Extremely unlikely - the developer, Monolith, owns the game engine and assets (and are in turn owned by Warner Bros), while FOX owns the intellectual property. You'd have to get them both to cooperate for some kind of re-release.

I would have thought that might have been possible after FOX allowed the Alien and Predator to show up in Mortal Kombat X (a Warner Bros game), but now that FOX is owned by the House of Mouse, I figure the chances are about nil.
Title: Re: A Public Apology To Randy Pitchford
Post by: SuperiorIronman on Apr 10, 2019, 12:26:43 PM
It's pretty much separate licensing that's the issue to getting a re-release of pretty much anything.

Netherrealm by the way it was described in a rapid fire interview with Ed Boon was that they simply ask companies if they can use certain characters as guest spots. It's pretty much up to the license holder if they want to have their I.P get blown apart or maimed in an MK game and they go from there. Meaning that regardless of it being WB or not, the decision to get Alien and Predator into MK was Fox's decision when Netherrealm asked.

I don't believe Fox or Netherrealm owns those specific instances of the characters and that they would have to renegotiate if they wanted to use them again. That being said, we don't know what that contract looked like, but I'd imagine it was only for that game.

Title: Re: A Public Apology To Randy Pitchford
Post by: Xenomrph on Apr 10, 2019, 05:16:22 PM
Well yeah it was definitely a one-off, I more of meant that if WB and FOX were willing to play ball once, maybe they'd be willing to do it again.

I am not sure its fair to compare them to Randy. Cyberpunk's flaws are that its buggy and was probably rushed out. Otherwise, the gameplay is fairly good.
ACM suffered from plot problem, characters, dialogue and some blatant continuity issue, all in addition to poor A.I.

I haven't forgiven him, but I just spent $30 on the bundle on steam!

To clarify, I had previously boycotted Gearbox successfully since 2013 due to the disaster of A:CM. My 5 year old son and I played through A:CM like 50 times because he loved it and everything about it. We just built a new PC for him (he paid for it with his own  money) and I told him he could have any game he wanted........................and he chose A:CM because he wanted to play through it with me again.  A friend had gifted me a PC copy years ago. So I gave in. We installed the overhaul mod, and honestly, it still has warts, but its a pretty big improvement and we had a blast in the first mission.

Randy can still go to hell though.

If you don't swallow your pride and finally apologize, Randy may never make another Aliens game ever again! >:(

Salvador Larroca deserves an apology as well cos Alien fans criticized his unorthodox artistic practices.

Honestly, the worse thing to happens to the comics IMHO. He's made me appreciate Sam Keith.

HOT TAKE INCOMING: I prefer Female War comic over novelisation because I find the story itself to be pretty "bleh" while Keith's weird and grotesque art brings some life into it. And Inhuman Condition is top notch

I do honestly think Keith suits Inhuman Condition down to a tee, and that on the reveal you can especially appreciate him for that story.

Can some of that appreciation spill over to Randy?

Now you have done it!

I will have to come in here and state that: I hold this trilogy as the golden trilogy of comics which I have as a favourite.
Book one earth hive
Book two earth war
book 3 female war

I love these comic books and the art is amazing in them and the dark atmosphere in them. :D You can dislike it all you want but I love them. :D
