still, they snatched it up and gave themselves something else to play with when they should have been focused on Borderlands 2 and Colonial marines.bartholen said:Blaming Gearbox for DNF is unfair. They didn't make the whole game, they just stitched it together from whatever bits 3D realms had. Or maybe not, I have neither the time nor enthusiasm to look deeply into how much Gearbox actually made of the final product. I actually think Gearbox should be congratulated for making gaming history by releasing the definitive "game that will never be released". It might have been a colossal turd (I haven't played, nor do I intend to do so), but merely finishing it and releasing it in stores deserves a tip of a hat from me.
And lets not ignore the fact that Randy Pitchford seems to genuinely not get why people found the game dull, boring, unpleasant or offensive.
But then he was touting Colonial marines as being totally true to the aliens mythos and setting, but it took a last minute petition in a game in development for six years to get female options in multiplayer.
