Oh crap .
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…
