The Sega/Gearbox courtroom drama has gotten a little more interesting this week, with Sega throwing some new accusations Gearbox's way
Aliens: Colonial Marines
Sega has tentatively agreed to pay out a cool $1.25 million as part of a settlement in a class action lawsuit brought to them and Gearbox Software in regards to Aliens: Colonial Marines.
In an ongoing lawsuit filed for Aliens: Colonial Marines' being falsely advertised, Gearbox Software has distanced itself from Sega, claiming that it funded the game and never saw any royalties from the Sonic publisher.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is well known for needing a bit of … work, let’s say. The game suffers from a variety of glitches and problems in both its single and multiplayer modes. We have known for a while that Gearbox was working on fixing some of these problems, and PAX East gave them the chance to give us even more info.
11 years in development, Aliens: Colonial Marines is finally available on your console. Wonder what took so damn long! Borderlands’ developers, Gearbox Software, started working on the title back in 2006 even though there had been a game with the same title started in 2001. To call this game somewhat jinxed might be an understatement. Fortunately, the long gestation period hasn't completely destroyed the game’s quality.
