Game is horrible. Any sane business mind would trash the project and invest in something sexier

Please don't give them that much credit, it will not be half as good as a MaLDo mod. Thanks for nothing Gearbox, I hope you choke on the money you stole from Sega. thumb.gif

You only need to watch the first 14 seconds. *Note some cursing*

Yeah there are other issues with the game, but why are you guys discouraging any improvement or effort? So your upset they screwed up the game. I am too. But why deny efforts to improve?

To me, the biggest thing is that there has been no apology. I'm not going to discourage their efforts but they haven't even admitted officially that their game was bad. So really they hid in their offices and then popped their heads up and said "We're patching it"

That being said, as I called it on the STEAM forums. If they do "Patch the game to be more like the demo" I would imagine they'd be getting Timegates work out of the bin and patching it into the game more than re-creating it. So in that respect they don't deserve any credit because the work was done, they gutted approx 60% of the game to make it for console release and told PC users "You couldn't run the demo anyway, our PC was a super-duper-uber PC at E3"

For me to like them again they'd have to re-do the story, Graphics are supplementary to the storyline experience. I could live with the way the game looks if it had an awesome awe-inspiring storyline but the voice actors sounded if they couldn't even be bothered ( Even Hicks sounded like he CBA to say he -is- a main character ). It had non-nonsensical twists that made it nothing more than a Fanfic writers wet dream. if they were to do both these things, then they should've just cut their losses because that'd be a complete overhaul of the game to the point it isn't even remotely like what they release, which sadly, is something they'll never do.

All in all it was a fun run-through but to me, it's another example of too many software houses on one game and tagging on Multiplayer in what was suppose to be a really atmospheric single player. ( Abit like what Bioshock 2, Dead Space and Tomb Raider are doing )

+1 Rep for the video. Gearbox, Timegate and Sega all need to watch that video. Gearbox so they know for a fact that they screwed up big time and have all their mistakes made clear. Timegate so they know how Gearbox destroyed their work and possibly some of their reputation. Sega so they can see just how poorly Gearbox used their money and a good license.

even if they fix the graphics, isnt AI in the game horrible?

Well the patch is live on steam and weighs in at about 3.5GB's. The screens I have been seeing show improvement, closer to the demo. I don't know how much other stuff was fixed. Don't expect miracles in the A.I. department.
