Randy Pitchford has only time for Colonial Marines praise

While the Internet at large still waits for Randy Pitchford -- or anybody -- from Gearbox to come clean and explain what went wrong with Aliens: Colonial Marines, the studio CEO has decided his best course of action is to display contempt for those who felt cheated when they bought his stinker.

It just seems like it could have been better without a ton of work. It will look better on pc and hopefully modders will fix enemy AI etc. Why not make the aliens more like the encounters in the movies than bullet fodder. Also, and maybe i am wrong, but this could been better alone. Maybe u enter as a group but get separated and u r overwhelmed. It would cut out the need for AI and up the tension and difficulty. I give a nod to detail but someone must have played this and noticed that it just wasnt up to par for 2013.

It's pretty clear that Gearbox were just the best-known of nearly a half-dozen studios that worked on this piece of crap. Why should Randy Pitchford waste his time on listening to people? It's quickly becoming clear that he and his people probably knew what was happening--the odds that you (or some theoretical Messiah of disenfranchised gamers) will tell him something he didn't already know.

Is he a good guy? I don't know. But his twitter is (currently) somewhat reasonable-sounding and I can't be offended by someone not wanting to hear criticisms that aren't new, just rude (and yes--I think that twitter users can be pretty offensive) any more than I can be offended by not wanting to argue with people whose political opinions I don't agree with. Even if I were a political consultant, I would think that I have every right to say "look, you have your opinion, but my opinion is that I don't want to hear it."

In short, not news.

Randy Pitchford, biggest bell end in the business.... and not in a good way!!

It's about time that people realise he has always been like this & that Gearbox have always been a shit developer & no Borderlands is not an awesome game!

Agreed. In addition to my above comment, I'm really not sure why people are surprised by any of this. DNF was the same story. If people want to get mad cause they got burned, whatever, but don't act like you couldn't have seen it coming. This is not the first time Gearbox has done this, and it's not the first time that Randy Pitchford has acted like this.

Feel how you're gonna feel about it, but don't play dumb, John Q Public.

That's funny because I feel nothing but contempt for liars and swindlers. I guess we're even Randy.

This guy is going to become a very hated icon in the industry, many angry of money mis spent. Cant Blame them

Doesnt matter if others had their hands in it, they did personal interviews on the game, they had game trailers at their actual building in a video talking about it and had Alien figures everywhere, they seemed like they were personally going to change our view on the bad Alien games -

Then we got $hitted on
