Aliens: Colonial Marines dev discusses the highs and lows of triple-A development

VB - We speak with Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford (Borderlands 2 and Aliens: Colonial Marines) about the state of triple-A development and whether big publishers are in this business for the wrong reason. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox Software, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

AAA and this game should not be mentioned in the same sentence.

The main question this corporate nut hugger should have asked was: "So how do you feel about creating such an abomination called Aliens: Colonial Marines, and how did you have the heart to release it knowing it's a turd?"

Seems like a nice guy BUT this nice guy had hidden agendas behind that corporate smile

Please stop giving Randy P. attention and marketing. launching DNF and ACM in the state they are in shows he is one of the problems in the industry today.

This is what happens when you just switch devs to work on your other games. The new dev didn't know what their doing and when they probably realized it, they couldn't fix it with out delaying it again. It's a shame since i was wanting this game, but stupidity killed this project.

The only thing that was done right was the multiplayer. VERY well done, I applaud you for that. However, Aliens is about story, and that shouldve been done right, also.
I hope they learned from all the negative feedback; though, I know the AI/Story wasn't near "good".

Since when do Xenomorphs run straight at you? Maybe on the ceiling, but on the floor? Come, now. That was idiotic. Once again, though... great Multiplayer.

I've seen some reviews of the game you can honestly tell the single player was developed by a different team.

well if you actually watched aliens you would see there are a number of occasions that involve the xenos running straight into gunfire .
ile give you some quick examples

the sentry guns , quite ALOT of xenos actually just continuously running into those , and bare in mind there are 4 sentry guns , all with xenos just running head 1st into the line of fire.

ripley and newt are leaving operations and a xeno runs straight at her , even after she opens fire.

when ripley is in the nest and she torches the nest , 4 xenos come straight at her , despite the FACT that she is in open-fire-mode .

in operations when the marines are making a last stand , the marines are on one side of the room ,ALL firing in one direction , and from the other side of the room are a wave of xeno's , just wildly running into gunfire.

its funny that people who bitch about canon always forget about the movies..............
