I'm curious, did Gearbox develop the entire game by themselves? I wouldn't think the makers of BL1/BL2 would put out such a bad game.

EDIT: Nevermind, missed this part "... and that Gearbox was only developing the multiplayer portion of a game primarily designed by TimeGate Studios."

Which is so weird.
Gearbox now has 2 recent releases, 2 out of 3, that sucked. And apparently sucked not from their work (though the multiplayer has been cited anywhere from "a ton of fun" in the two positive reviews I've read to "still boring" in most of the others), but from the work of others.

Gearbox is stamping their names on shitty games that they're not wholly responsible for. Which actually makes them wholly responsible. It's just a stupid thing to do in an industry where the name on the box is often what sells games as much as what the game actually is. There are people that will buy anything Epic or Valve. And, if Gearbox had only put out Borderlands 2 in the past 18 months, they'd be very close to being right there with them.

Instead there was Duke, and now there's this.
