Rumor: Development On Aliens Game Was A "Total Train-wreck"
Okay, I don't believe in passing judgment before playing, but I have to admit, I'm not a fan of this news.
If you didn't already know, Aliens: Colonial Marines comes out this week, and many have been anticipating a decent - if not great - title that properly honors the legendary "Aliens" franchise. After all, Borderlands developer Gearbox Software did it, so-
But wait. Did they do it?
As noted at StickSkills, there are numerous teams that worked on this project and one of them is TimeGate Studios. And perhaps unfortunately, according to a post in the NeoGAF forums, TimeGate handled the bulk of the single-player campaign. Sadly, there's a rumor going around that creation of the game was just a "total train-wreck" and primary development was handed off to TimeGate (Section 8, a couple F.E.A.R. expansions). It seems Gearbox only did the multiplayer.
And I'm going to go play it in just a few minutes here...uh-oh...
