Jesus how many times are people going to post this?

The game was a failure and people throw conspiracy theories everywhere.

Yes. I know. I saw it twice yesterday. It's from some guy with "sources" on destructoid but has no way to actually confirm or prove that Gearbox took money from Sega to make Borderlands and that Gearbox offered them bum contracts in the beginning.

Conspiracy theories and pointing figures. This isn't the first time I saw someone pointing fingers over a failed Sega funded title.

FWIW, I've not only read the article you've linked to but I've been following the whole A:CM/'Geargate' story through Reddit and the Sega Awakens blog. There is simply not enough confirmable evidence at the moment to say "Yep, Gearbox lied and stole from Sega, Borderlands was mostly funded by embezzled money and now Borderlands is DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!"

Even if one assumes the absolute worst happened, there's no way to predict how it will affect future Borderlands support or GBX's long-term outlook. FFS, both EA and Capcom are almost universally despised by gamers and have awful business practices that MANY people know about, but they still sell millions of games even while the people who buy those games complain about everything. Unless GBX is taken to court and completely, utterly dismantled by the subsequent ruling, they'll probably still be around. And there's NO guarantee that GBX will be in legal trouble over their part in A:CM. Is it a possibility? Yeah. Is it likely? At this point, probably not.

Get this s*** out of here.
Stupid ass topic.
Go back to reddit.

This is like if I said, i saw borderlands at walmart, walmart also has peanut butter. Peanut butter is kind of borderlads related.

Lets f****ing talk about peanut butter on the BL2 board.

Its old and nonrelevant.
I bet kaboom would even welcome a LF topic over more of these.

Excuse me but everything that is posted on the internet is 100% true every single time.

If some random dude says it happened, then it happened. For a fact.

What a casual.
