He says after he found out Aliens CM flopped

Non-flop - Thanks for teh support guys
Flop - Sales don't mean shit to us!!

long winded excuses and public apologies are preferable to decent games or acceptable sales....if all else fails.

Remember when this saying was saved to serve as a reminder for us to focus on the game's quality?
