ITT: Real life video game villains that got away with it
>Gearbox funnels money from ACM to fund Borderlands 2
>Gives a pittance to now defunct companies like Timegate Studios who were desperate for work to finish the game
>Skirts the deceptive marketing lawsuit and SEGA ends up the one having to go to court
>Alien Isolation ends up selling worse because of this brand poisoning
>SEGA has to resort to PC ports of console games and Borderlands is at its most successful
Brava Gearbox and Randy
>tfw gearbox bought your favorite game franchise
> Isolation Shit (it definitely dragged on too long, but that hardy makes a game "shit")
> Colonial Marines is great
What parallel universe do you live in? Patches fixed some bugs sure, but they didn't fix the awful AI, animations, half the game being about fighting generic soldiers, or stuff like grenades being worthless.
>SEGA has to resort to PC ports of console games
If they made so much money off PC, Sega would make at least make games multiplat with PS4 and PC. But nope, gotta give the PC Dogs old, eaten, and chewed console scraps. I swear, by the time a Sega game comes from console to PC, the plate has already been licked clean.
They just publish that, Sega doesn't have a single finger involved in that. Meanwhile they make nothing but Sonic, Yakuza, and Miku, and they MIGHT port an old console game to PC.
I honestly wonder if this would be a better model instead of simply porting old games no one asked for. I mean, the whole Yakuza 5 fiasco was hardly worth it for Sega in the first place, despite the localization being nothing more than volunteer work.
I'm still holding out hope that it will be good, but definitely waiting for reviews. For what its worth most of the game was developed before Gearbox had anything to do with it.
