Indeed, "f***ing lol" Gearbox.

He's worst than Peter Molyneux. At least Peter, starts his fluffing his games with "imagine a world" or whatever. Randy just outright lied to our faces.

Calling this lawsuit "beyond meritless" is beyond stupidity. Sega and Gearbox provided a demo of content completely absent in the game. The demo gave the impression that you'd be playing a game true to the lore of the Aliens franchise and the game did not represent any aspect of that demo beyond a base adherence to the genre. Aliens:CM has you facing more humans than Aliens and is just a terrible game. I'll link an Angry Joe video that really explains it better at the end.

This class action suit needed to happen so that publishers and developers understand the difference between showing an unfinished product, and showing a product that doesn't and will never exist. We have bullshots, we shouldn't have deceitful demos.

"beyond meritless" my arse! if the footage you're using to intice consumers to buy your game isn't representative of the final product then you are ripping people off and need to be held responsible for it.

After what they did to Aliens Fans they deserve the lawsuit.

It's fine when the bullshots and "gameplay footage" look slightly better than gameplay. But I agree, the final Aliens games looked NOTHING like the final product.

I have a feeling this lawsuit, whether Gearbox loses or not, is going to have a big ripple effect in the industry.

Wow I just saw a comparison vid of the demo and the final version, and they looked like 2 different games which was really disgusting. Shame on gearbox!
