Looks like another shot at making a Terminator game without using the Terminator license.

Having Aliens Colonial Marines on a resume is perhaps punishment enough, I count on every future game that Gearbox puts out there will be "fan edits" of their trailers inter-splicing "From the makers of Aliens Colonial Marines" and pulled voice over quotes from Randy.

Attempting to wring a class action lawsuit out of a demonstration is beyond meritless.

but using fake gameplay footage from a demonstration and putting it in marketing videos that had "100% in game footage" text included is deceptive if not false advertising.

we'll see if the judge thinks it's without merit.

How can you prove it was fake gameplay footage?
Obviously if you have internal documents, but the story we've heard is that, at the time, it was absolutely real gameplay footage. But it didn't run well, was optimized only for what they showed, and it was scaled back considerably.

Here's something people seemed to know in the past but have all forgotten: virtually everything you see at E3 is optimized for the specific moment you're seeing and often running on more powerful hardware than it will ever be played on.

Again, this is an extreme example of this, but the general consensus is that, at E3 last year, Gearbox legitimately thought the game would look like that. They then got the outsourced stuff, saw it was crap, made it even worse, and released it.

But it isn't as if they were showing that footage at launch, were they? We were already seeing the footage that looked like garbage.

Gearbox handled this very poorly and deserves all the crap they're getting, but I don't think this can be proven as "illegal" instead of just "inept and shitty," and this is also just another reason why we haven't seen anything about HL3.

I call it fake because it didn't end up in the game, and they kept using footage from that e3 demo way past any reasonable time frame of knowing the game wouldn't look or play like that.

The biggest problem is that you're dealing with clips shown that last mere seconds, to anyone who hasn't played the game and then compared it very closely to the marketing videos you wouldn't be able to see the parts that are actually from the game and the ones spliced from the e3 demo.

I missed the announcement that Sega canceled the Wii U version, that speaks volumes in itself - not with regards to the lawsuit but that even Sega internally admit they put out a turd of a game.

Those fast food ads don't have "100% actual product shown" plastered across the screen, most of the advertisements that SEGA made for the game did - but it was just that target render footage that Pitchford showed at E3, more like 100% bullshit footage.

$299 and all the ads you can watch for $10 a month 2/year contract.

I'm still waiting on the price increase announcement for the games, $79.99 perhaps?

Yeah, they're going to change just enough to try to make people think it's worthy of the #4 but most likely will recycle so many assets from BF3 that people will cry "$60 DLC expansion" no mater what DICE says.

Bring back MAV riding.

I loved getting up on buildings you really weren't suppose to and then snipe down from high.

The only thing I liked about commander mode in BF2 was that it gave me an excuse to destroying commander assets and hanging out in the enemy spawn area.

The Surface is the Zune all over again.

In order for Microsoft to become cool again they need to look very closely at what made them an overnight hit in the first place which was giving people complete freedom over their "personal" computers from the tyrannical oppression of mainframe computing.

They need to release an OS for tablets that is lightweight, inexpensive and open to running programs that can be purchased and installed from sources other than their paid-wall-garden. Android is all of these things and is why Microsoft is getting their ass kicked.

As long as it's an x86 design and you can run desktop apps on it freely then it could end up being a big thing, battery life is key followed by screen size and resolution.

Asus has a walkabout tablet computer that has a slick integration of android on top of windows 8. You can do android, metro apps and desktop all on one device.
