Hmm if Gearbox or whoever can just patch up the game to what it is supposed to be, I'd be happy.

Hmm. It will take 'another' 6 years to do just that. Meanwhile...... :rolleyes:

I don't think that's at all credible. Even if the Wii U version was considered important - which is plausible given how much Randy Pitchford talked it up - there's no way that would have resulted in the PS3 and X360 versions being scrapped, as basic economics tells you that's a ridiculous idea. It's very much harder to recoup your investment on a new console with limited marketshare than it is to release a title on multiple platforms with an established user base. Furthermore, in terms of hardware the Wii U is a current gen console, so the idea it would be easier to port that version to next-gen consoles is simply nonsense - focusing on the PC version would have made more sense. Finally, if the Wii U version really is so much better than the other versions then it would have made sense to delay the release on other platforms to avoid the bad reviews.

There are a lot of things mentioned in that post that sound incredibly suspicious.

going with LOC and Razonwing on this...it's a game that was basically vaporware and Gearbox came along and did their DNF thing to it. it's the same story all over again with the negative reviews and anger. this game isn't that bad, at least on PC. just like DNF wasn't that bad, if you knew what you were getting into and are a forgiving person. There are enough nice touches in ACM to please any Alien fan, so it's ok.

The game crashes on me after showing all the logos in the beginning. I can't run it.

I've tried to run it as admin, tried to re-install it, tried to update MS .net - nothing is working.

GFX card drivers? Checked event viewer to see what is crashing?

I agree with him, I thought DNF was fun for what it was. After so many years of waiting, I certainly didn't go into that game thinking it was going to be the 2nd coming of FPS games or something. I expected a Duke game, and I mostly got that. Same with ACM, it's an Alien game, even if it isn't perfect. The graphics stuff, and changes between the E3 demo and final game are just mind boggling though.

Well said as always LOC. Many of our peers lack perspective it seems, or are just too picky!
