"work in progress" doesn't mean you show in-game footage that looks better than what the released product ends up being.

"work in progress" isn't a backwards thing. It's a forwards thing. The finished title is supposed to look better than what your "work in progress" video showed, not look worse.

This is regularly untrue in most industries so stop saying it. Again, cars never look like prototypes, oculus rift is uglir than what was shown on kickstaryrr, Kinect can't see fingers like the prototype, and many games get uglier when they can't get the final version to run as well as what they showed.

And, again, typically what you see at e3 is faked. Its optimization and polish done that hasn't been applied anywhere else and often can't be. It becomes aspirational.

Stop talking about the way things work if you don't understand them. Yes, ACM is a collaxsal fuck up. Collassal. Yes, Randy deserves his next game taking a sales hit. But a game not looking like what is shown at e3? God, on this board we used to know that. What happened? When did we get dumb? E3 threads used to be all us criticizing how the release game wouldn't look like the footage. Now suddenly many here are pretending only gearbox does this.
