I can't say I'm surprised folks. We all know the game was a flop on multiple levels. GBX knew it wasn't ready after all the time was lost due to scrapping the whole project and starting over midway with Timegate. It was a bad game by many standards. People don't sue video game publishers or developers because they made a pile of crap.
Ultimately, yes, it was insulting to us, the Alien fanbase, for how they handled a franchise we all hold near and dear in our hearts that we didn't want to see massacred anymore. The suit was more on principal and the "false ads" premise was their argument. I'm glad they stood up to make a point but I can't say I was really expected a multi-million dollar company to lose against some angry fans.
