mind boggling to say the least, my respect for Randy Pitchford has plummeted after he sat through those demo viewings and basically lied to everyone knowing good well this retail version was going to be the actual Aliens game we see today.

There was a thread on the gearbox forums detailing his and other staffers inflated claims for bl2. Not the first time

Did the same thing for brothers in arms hells highway, and the same for many other games, I love borderlands I must admit but this FALSE advertising in their other games is beyond disgusting.

hells highway delivered in my opinion.

Hells highway was a good game, my point is however comparing to the initial demos the final game was, at least graphically, inferior.

The first video in this article really does it for me. I haven't yet got my copy of the game (it's still in the post), and so this was the first I'd seen of ACTUAL gameplay. To see it compared with the demo is physically painful.

Up until now, I was holding out hope, thinking that it would "still be an Aliens game", so even if it was glitchy and badly-written, it would still "feel" right. But the game looks terrible compared to what I was expecting!

Ask Randy in 5 years "what was one of the worst mistakes you've made during your time in the gaming industry?" I bet it would be releasing Aliens:CM in this condition. It hasn't even been out for a week and it's being picked apart.

There is no in depth explanation needed.

Quite simply one night when he was all alone Randy Pitchford spread his arse cheeks so wide he lost control of his bowels and the diarrhea just poured out into a game case.

He picked it up and admired his "work" he thought he could sell it and sell it he did.
