Extra Punctuation: Colonial Marines Developers Should Own Up to Screwing Up

Ben Yahtzee Croshaw writes "I don't think there's much more that needs to be said about Aliens: Colonial Marines. I mean, that was sort of the case even before my ZP went up. My review schedule being a couple of weeks behind usually works fine when I'm talking about games whose quality can be debated for a few weeks, but it tends to make me look silly when everyone immediately realizes that a given game is a fucking trainwreck the day it comes out. We live in an age of low attention spans and instant information, so when we get an undeniable and universally accepted bomb, it will bomb fast, and bomb hard." (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox Software, Industry)
