Randy Pitchford Ignores Criticism, Blocks Critics
Did you like Aliens: Colonial Marines? Probably not, given the overwhelmingly negative reception to the game. Randy Pitchford doesn’t want to hear your complaints, though. Shortly after coming back from a week-long PR hiatus following the launch of the beleaguered title, Pitchford logged on to Twitter to find that a lot of people were quite mad over A:CM, and that they blamed him for the disaster.
Confronted by a mass of angry gamers, Pitchford responded by blocking those with harsh criticisms and focusing on those praising A:CM. The most notable addition to the block list was game critic Jim Sterling, who is one of the most vocal critics of A:CM and Pitchford’s behavior over the poor reception of the game. Pitchford has yet to respond publicly to requests for more details on the development of A:CM.
