    What the hell happened to Aliens: Colonial Marines? (Video comparison DEMO vs FINAL)

    Post by ChizFreak on Thu Feb 14, 2013 9:50 pm

    An interesting video, it really points up interesting things, the game really looks better in the demo. I mean, why would they show something better in the demo and the downgrade the actual final game? Of course there is always the pure marketing reasons "to sell more", but I expected more from Sega and GearBox, though it's true that it changed developers, the demo was made by GearBox.

    To me, I believe this project, was just an extra game GearBox didn't pay much attention and said *** it and didn't do many effort besides making an decent multiplayer.



    Really man, the makers of Borderlands 1 and 2, Brothers in Arms made this? First the *** up with Duke Nukem Forever, and now this...

    That's why I think they just don't give a ***, because they made great games, but those 2 games I mentioned, seems like ****, like if they didn't even tried.

    I wonder what gave them the impression that changing the game from dark and eerie to "clear as day" and taking away details (The explosions? What is this?), combat sequences (Turret with no targets?) cutscenes (Save comrade or leave him? Leave him) was, in any way, good for the game.

    I mean, why spent effort making the game worse?

    Obvious Bait and Switch, I think after witnessing Gear Box cornhole one of my favorite movie series I don't think I shall be purchasing anymore of their games this actually made me depressed after watching all the developer interviews, Randy Pitchford can shove it where the sun don't shine.

    I really haven't had high hopes for any game that has the "Alien" label on it. Don't get me wrong I love the movie series and have all of them, but the games have really never been that good with the only exception being some of the old PC games.

    It's a shame I just heard about this yesterday and I have to admit that demo looked awesome.

    Finally got around to watching the vid. Man it could've been so much more.

    This game has had a 6 year development cycle and cost a boatload to make. It was a cluster^&*&. There are rumors that they were using the funding from this game to make the borderlands series and simply strung along 20th Century Fox to keep the money flowing and after all that cash had to deliver 'something'. This is what you get.

    If that is indeed the case then Gearbox is some serious trouble. Legal action will be taken.

    From what I understand: The demo isn't the game at all. They apparently made the demo apart from the game so that they could present it to players to get the game to sell more, even tho the final product was of a lesser quality. Which means they didn't downgrade the game, the game was just never this good at all. (What I heard, not actual fact written in stone)

    This sort of stuff can be illegal as this is practically false advertising (Saying this game is what it isn't). Seriously, gaming companies are really going over the edge this time. Weren't video games in the past at least more honest?

    I honestly never had any hope for the game. The Alien games are a lost cause in my opinion.

    I got the AVP game that was released a couple of years ago. Not too bad, but it most certainly does not live up to the tension of the movies.

    Edit: Oh my, i seem to have passed 1500 posts. silly

    on the first vid, 3:40 is ridiculous. Its like eating a small piece of a delicious cake, and when you go see the cake itself, its reduced to crap.

    I played the classic Aliens Vs Preadator 2 and it was AWESOME. Devs should take the same formula and innovate a bit, while keeping the same feeling. AVP (2010) was good, and while it was relatively close to the original formula, it wasn't neither the same thing, something better, or the same thing made better.

    I was really hoping he would do a review of Dark Souls because I saw his gameplay of the beginning of the game. sad

    I really feel bad for him though, since he made a top 10 reasons why the game was going to be good.

    Hey guys, this is completely off-topic.
    Spoiler:
    Angry Joe makes some interesting reviews, he puts emotion into them
    while trying to be fair to the game (He gave DMC: Devil May Cry a decent
    score, despite not liking what they did with the original DMC
    franchise). My 2 gripes with him, however, is that:

    1. He gave
    Skyrim a perfect score. Having played the game for 2 months, played with
    5 different characters, tried 5 different playstyles (Melee, Magic,
    Stealth, Vender/Buffer, Poisoner), having completed various storylines
    and whatnot; I can say Skyrim did deserve a bit above average score (8),
    but it had in-numerous flaws to be given a 10, all of which he
    admitted, but ignored during the Final Verdict.

    2. He has a
    "Let's play Dark Souls" video where he said he would review Dark Souls
    "tomorrow"; the video was posted on October 7, 2011. A review of Dark
    Souls by Angry Joe does not exist in present time. My personal opinion
    is that he disliked the game and would have given it a low score, but
    knew about the fanbase and decided not to review it because it would
    turn out bad and he didn't want to give a dishonest score. It's not that
    I hate he disliked the game, more like that he never gave a review of
    it despite saying he would.

    Now that I think about it, with Capcom's questionable policies and now this, not to mention some companies copying off what Capcom is doing (Another game version? Come on, we have internet, you don't have a viable excuse anymore!); is there even a possibility of a bright future for the gaming industry?

    Yeah I watched that too. I think he could give an excellent review for Dark Souls, shame that he didn't though. Here's hoping for a Dark Souls 2 review.
    Yeah I was actually hoping the game would be good just for his sake since he made that video so he could tell all the haters to get lost. Of course now it's funny to see the haters that hate on the review. There are several that the logics that they use make no utter sense. Like one comment talked about how reviewers shouldn't be able to talk about bad AI programming on higher difficulty settings or something along those lines.

    Spoiler:

    1. I can see where you are coming from. I personally didn't like Skyrim at all, just never understood the hype behind the game, though I will say that some of the mods on PC look awesome. I'd say the game is worth an 8 out of 10. I guess though Joe really liked the game. Even though his reviews are well balanced, better then most of the official reviews IMO, his reviews are still partially his opinion so they more then likely will have bias depending on how he really feels for the game. If he really, really liked it I can see him giving a game a higher score then probably he should.
    2. I don't think he hates Dark Souls, I mean he praises a lot of stuff in the short let's play he has of the game. He also seemed to be pretty excited for the rest of the game after the tutorial. I don't know. Personally I feel that he didn't make a Dark Souls review because he didn't think a lot of people would watch it or because he had other reviews to do that he felt were more important. Really we can't really know unless he actually tells us whether or not he hates it. It will just be a mystery. Here's hoping though we get a Dark Souls 2 review out of him.
    Also the posting a review tomorrow quote wasn't for Dark Souls, it was for another game, which would more then likely be the review for X-Men Destiny which came out a few days after the Let's Play vid. Joe usually plays a game fully before making a review and judging by what he did in the let's play he was new to the game. Unless he sped through the game in a day (which I doubt), he couldn't of released a review for the game the very next day. He never really said he would give a review for Dark Souls at all in the video.

    EDIT:
    Also about the final boss. I think they should of made a new alien to fight rather then another Queen Alien. Something fun like this Xenomorph T-rex:
