SEGA asked about ACM, changes subject, pimps other games instead

"Colonial Marines is still on. We've been working closely with Gearbox behind the scenes and we'll be able to tell you a lot about that in the next couple of months. It won't be out November 11th (as previously reported). We haven't announced a date yet. This was kind of a pickup for us, with Acitvision acquiring Vivendi and us having the Aliens license. With the state of the code available to us with Aliens Vs Predator from Rebellion, that kind of forced us and allowed us to slightly alter our Aliens roadmap and strategy. It made sense to release that first. We have a further title to announce from Platinum Games as well. We'll also have a core title coming from Nagoshi-san's (Super Monkey Ball creator Toshihiro Nagoshi-Ed) internal studio in Japan. It's a shooter." 
 
So that's vice-president of Sales and Marketing for SEGA America Alan Pritchard, speaking in the latest issue of Game Informer. 
 
I have a few points. 
 
1 - November 11th? Wait what? You had a release date for ACM? When did that happen?  
 
2 - "Kind of a pickup for us" makes it sounds like they still have no idea what they're doing with the Aliens licence and that they didn't really want it in the first place. And who was the genius who "altered their roadmap" to release a mediocre game nobody wanted first with AVP? 
 
3 - This whole interview comes across like this: 
 
"What's up with Aliens: Colonial Marines?" 
 
"IT STILL EXISTS BUT I AIN'T TELLING YOU SHIT YO DAWG YOU LIKE THAT SUPER MONKEY BALL?" 
 
 

WHILE PONDERING THESE QUESTIONS. I'LL ENJOY THIS HALF-DECADE OLD SCREENSHOT

Predator 2 would totally make a better videogame.

I mean playing AS the predator, bustin' up Jamaican gangbangas' moon. Danny Glover could be a recurring boss.

Why does SEGA want to do me like this? All I want is to live in a world full of peace, love, harmony and awesome games and SEGA's recurring presence keeps putting a stop to that. 
 
 

SEGA ON LEFT, ME ON RIGHT
