After getting burned with AvP3 i decided to wait and see with this one. Good call.

I might reload this for some real action.

Just saw the vid, they are using console/AMD gameplay for their comparison. I just got done playing with the 2 new visual mods off pcgamer and now my game looks like that demo they are so desperately wanting. Id def recommend these mods if you have a computer able to handle it.

Apparently, Gearbox outsourced this game to other companies since they were so busy with BL2.
There's a rather large Reddit thread here for those wanting to read up a bit.

News around the mill is that this game's development was handled very poorly. Basically Gearbox wanted to focus on Borderlands 2 so they outsourced development. Was passed around to a whole bunch of different studios, stuff was scrapped each time it was passed on, by the time gearbox got it back it was in poor shape, had been in development for 6 years and Sega (the IP holders) were gearing up to sue them for not delivering on the game Gearbox had been paid to make.

Gearbox knew it was crap, but they had to do something, they patched as many holes as quickly as possible and did the bare minimum to scrape through Microsoft and Sony's TRC compliance then shipped regardless of what it was actually like as a game. I'm guessing it didn't make it past Nintendo's quality checks which is why there's no Wii U release yet, there's sometimes up to a month turn-around while they run the game though all the tests so each failure usually pushes release back about a month and a half, not to mention the costs involved in re-submitting it for testing to Nintendo.

Seems the whole thing was quite a mess:



Also, when there isn't a single review of the game, on release day, well - omens of doom don't get any more obvious.

Probably not something you want in writing in an open to the public forum...

EDIT: to add something positive, played the coop campaign quite a bit now on ultimate badass and its been a really good fun, even took a swing at the multiplayer "escape" match last night and it was a lot of fun.

Is it the BEST shooter out there? Nope. Will I get my £25 worth of entertainment out of it? Definitely.

I would be sooo happy if I could feel the same way about DNF, but I tried it sooo hard and couldn't. Maybe I'm not enough old-school anymore.

Make the game look a lot better. Much darker, during one bit with face-huggers (searching for Bella) I couldn't see the damn things until they were airborne leaping at me. First time scared the crap out of me

Looks much better and you have to wonder why the devs didn't do something like this.
