And this is why Gearbox is now confirm to be a mediocre developers and a bunch of liars. They've pretty much destroyed their name that they had going for them. So any other new IP or games they pick up to finish the development, I would probably avoid them.


Yeah, that's a pretty dramatic overstatement.


Not at all. I would very much consider Gearbox to be mediocre.


That wasn't the entirety of the statement. The fanbase is acting like this will be the death of Gearbox. It won't. Gearbox will have some fences to mend with the press, that was their biggest blunder. You know, aside from delivering a sub-par title.

Both reasons actually. But honestly, I don't know what people expected after watching the recent pre-release gameplay demo with the middle finger thing. Now the original, fake, demo looked quite good and that may have been the contributing factor along with Randy's other lies.



Do you have a video of the demo? I see many people mention it, but all I've seen is a side by side comparison of the full game and some other footage, and I personally wasn't impressed with, well, either.

Honestly the demo doesn't impress me THAT much. It looks like it is being played on a high end pc with those graphic packs modders do.

The final game, to me, doesn't look much worse. It just has a cartoony coat to it, instead of a gritty, realistic one like the demo. Which is sad because realistic/gritty would have been great for this game.

But in the end the 'graphics' don't change much.

Scores like 2/10 should be reserved for unplayable games.


I don't get where people get this from. See, the reviewer gets to define the review scale, and they usually do so up front. They're telling you what a 2 is before you even read the review, and projecting your idea of what a 2 or a 10 is doesn't make any sense.



Then, imo, the reviewer sucks and is no longer credible.

If he gives a good, working game a 2/10, what would he give a game that freezes constantly, deleted data consistently, doesn't load textures, is only 2 hours long? a -5/10?


If he puts games like A:CM as a 2/10 I can no longer take him seriously, regardless if it his opinion or not.

Yeah, not sure where all the love for the demo comes from. It seems too scripted, imo. Ah well.

There's also the AI shown in the demo that doesn't exist in the game, there are set pieces that never happen, there is a lot of stuff the demo showed that doesn't make it to the final game. And that would be fine, Halo 2's E3 demo didn't make it to the final game either, but they didn't tell us it was a vertical slice of the game, lifted out to show us what the game will look like, when it was nothing of the sort. The demo was either work that should have been in the final product, or it was staged purely as a demonstration of intent.
