Looks like GBX is playing the system pretty hard with this one and passing the buck wherever they can...and I'm not surprised.  At least SEGA is willing to settle but GBX doesn't want to pay for cheating the consumer out of a sub-par, under-developed product.

Good news is that there is a chance of justice yet for those that paid full price for what should've been a bargain title. 

The better news is that I'd imagine that SEGA is now micro-managing their quality control for Isolation...which makes me have more hope for that title.

look at aliens crucible it gave a different style of gameplay, even though the alien AI needed improvement and so did the weapons, if handled right it could of been epic but the developers these days well ya know.....

And because of this "obligation", how many people have vowed never to buy a Gearbox game again? I was curious about Boardeands for the longest time. but, because of their constant lies and disregard for customer satisfaction and opinion, I will never buy it. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels thisnway. I'll be damned if I ever buy any of Gearbox's future titles either.

This was the first and last game from gearbox i bought

After what happened with Watch Dogs and Ubisoft it looks like this is becoming a norm in the industry so this lawsuit will probably head nowhere and it's just a waste of money.

So basically Gearbox is saying that even though they shit the bed, SEGA said not to worry about it so it's SEGA's fault there's a mess in the sheets?

That's rich.

I've seen a lot of people say they're never going to buy another Gearbox game.

Whether they actually do or not is another matter, but it has definitely generated a lot of ill feeling that isn't aimed at Sega.

Funny thing is, no one would have cared if the game turned out great regardless of the pre-release marketing; I think that's the real sore point. It's more that we are hardcore fans and we wanted the best but we got our feelings hurt, but you can't say that in court unfortunately. So it's easy to bring up the false advertising issue instead. Gearbox are without doubt a bunch of sly c***ts, but unfortunately every company does this sort of false marketing thing constantly.

my brother pointedly doesn't talk about this game with me due to the 6 years of anticipation and the following 12 months of complaining on my part. But he raised an excellent point , if gearbox was pixxed it didn't get paid for making this crappy game but took all the proceeds then no matter who made the game they are now legally involved for taking the money. I think they want out before Sega gets to see financial records of HOW its money was spent.

Alien Isolation will be this franchise's last chance to shine IMO. I will wait for the reviews to come out and if it's any good, I'll buy it. I refuse to pre-order anything anymore. I learned the hard way with A:CM and Battlefield 4...

I HATE SEGA i mean look what happened to ROME II same shit happened there that happened to this game, its all about management, this is not news whether creative assembly works on it, obsidian, gear box, bioware etc.. since sega calls the shots since they have the license.  sega will streamline the product aka strip down games to the bones minimum to save time and money, as long as they can pump out copies to meet quota they dont care, as long as the advertisement is exceptionally good for marketing to alure buyers...either that they will give you the bones minimum almost a beta at launch and sell the game or patches to you in pieces and you have to pay extra for each piece, why? GIVE ME MONEY SUCKERS. i was a sucker with avp 010 for segas first game of the franchise, never again will i buy as long as the franchise is held by SEGA IMO  >:(

Wouldn't be the first time Gearbox is trying to squirm their way out of the highlights for screwing the pooch. They did it with Duke Nukem as well, saying that it's not their fault, its the license holder's fault.

If a companies product is doing this badly on numerous different projects there is a single common factor.....

GEARBOX

I hope they all feel like pieces of dog $#!7 for all the "were fans of the franchise, fans will love this, this is made for fans"

Speaking as someone who knows nothing about Watch_Dogs, could you elaborate on this?

There's not much to really elaborate on, Ubisoft's early footage was much more pristine than the final released game, much in the same way A'CM's was. I'm sure someone can post video examples.
