To Gearbox With Love

Kevin at Press Start Australia writes: "So here’s a funny thing. Does anyone remember Aliens: Colonial Marines? Of course you do, it set the gaming world on fire with it’s very mediocre campaign and accusations of misused funds, false advertising and fake demos. It had the whole list. That game managed 1.31 million copies sold as indicated by SEGA’s end of year fiscal report (or shipped, unconfirmed), proving that as long as you have a beloved license you can tear said license to shreds and still sell a lot of copies." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
