Honestly, Randy Pitchford has done little to calm the waters and if anything made it 10x worse by BLOCKING people (myself included) to anyone who brought up anything other than "omfg aliens was tah best!!!1, <3 randyyyy!!!" and clearly couldn't take criticisim, no matter how legit without crying and acting like a douchey baby.

I don't want to hear anything because we already know what happened. Gearbox didn't give a shit about this game and was focused on Borderlands so they outsourced to a developer that clearly couldn't handle a project of this size and now Randy is acting like a huge dick and extremely unprofessional.

Not to mention creating obvious fake accounts to praise himself (and I thought I was the only here who did that). Gearbox did this in the past so it really isn't past them



(he ends up blocking everyone anyways unless it's absolute praise). He also blocked Jim Sterling hilariously enough.

Disgusting. I just lost some serious respect for Gearbox. I don't want to hear whatever bullshit excuse, Sega is also not entirely clean, their website is STILL showing off the demo footage rather than actual footage and they still refuse to give any actual footage to anyone (reviewers, advertiser, etc.) in what is the most blatant attempt at false advertising I have ever seen.

This is just a PR nightmare.

That said, it provided me much entertainment, witnessing stupidity and arrogance at it's highest, sadly enough it had to come from a person and company I grew to love and respect deeply. Oh well I still have Valve.

*don't bring up the Valve layoffs, my heart can't take it.

I'm done with Gearbox. You can't do this to gamers and expect them to be okay with it. It amazes me how naive Randy Pitchford is, does he seriously believe that he could lie so blatantly and put out a blatant fabrication pre-release and expect to not be called out on it? I don't care how good their future titles may be I won't be buying them and I hope others have the willpower to do the same, to punish such behavior.

From this day on, Gearbox, Time Gate Studio and Randy Pitchford, all are going down to their despicable career road!!!

Trust/honesty is everything, when you lose 'trust/honesty', you lose everything 'Gearbox'!!!

P.S. Of course, Randy Pitchford knows everything, he's just lying...worse than communist leaders!!!! He has indicated the lack of respect towards gamers, it's obvious that the lack of discipline from the leader and and the team is the main reason of failure; both must be 'severely' punished!!

The nerve this egotistical manipulative liar has to take such a beloved story/franchise into his greedy dirty little hands and promise us the best and then totally bait and switch. Then give us this tripe. I will never consider this story "canon" nor will anyone else. Pitchturd...go hide under the rock you came from. We don't like you anymore. And take Borderlands, Borderlands 2, ACM with you. I believe there maybe some room left for you along with all those copies of ET.

I was pissed at how this guy handled many gamer's complaints over Borderlands 2, because a lot of the people who loved the original wanted the second to reflect the first game, not just add shiny colors to everything and take away the nasty assed death animations. As I said, was pissed at how he has handled that game, the Bee thing etc.but I figured I'd give this a try as I'm a huge Aliens fan. I think you guys/ladies know how that worked out, I'm with ya BlackLabel I refuse no matter how good the game is to ever buy another Gearbox game.

This is just heartbreaking. I had been waiting half a decade for this game! My friends and I live in different locations here in the United States. Regardless of different time zones and other barriers. We went out night of the release, got our copies, watched Alien and Aliens to get pumped up while our copies installed on our computers. When we all got together to play and we started up the game... I can tell you we wearing grins of excitement. 2 Minutes. That is how long it took us going into the game to collectivley go "WTF?!"

We all have been had. Randy Pitchford and his company took a franchise we all are fans of and wiped his a$$ with it. The method of how he has been handling damage control, his lying with bait and switch... this list goes on. As far as I am concerned... Randy Pitchford and his company can rot in HELL. For from this entire cluster-f&$^, Randy has shown us that he is indeed the "King of Lies". I will never purcahse anything tied to gearbox again nor will I support such a corrupt company that is garbage.
