Yesterday, 01:08 PMThanks for the update.
27 March 2017 - 02:21 PMThis is small beer compared to the fiasco of Biblical proportions that was Aliens: Colonial Marines. This shit happens in the industry all the time. Look at what happened to Human Head and Prey 2. Money does NOT equal intelligence or responsibility.

26 March 2017 - 12:56 PMIf you actually read it, it's not an apology, so much as admitting that it was a trainwreck and trying to explain how it came about. What he seems to be saying is that somebody decided to use 'out of the box' options and auto-everything for the facial animations. As every digital artist knows, default settings are something to use as a base, and not to be relied on for any kind of final work.
One thing he says is that they had a 5 year dev cycle for the game. So, in 5 years, nobody spotted that the animations were a train wreck and went in and fixed it?
Targeting game devs personally is really bad as it won't be criticism, but people will - guaranteed - fly off the handle and behave like assholes. We've all had enough of gamers looking like overly-entitled, angry, basement-dwelling, woman hating, 14 year old psycopaths. Saying that, the blame for this should lie with the animators art director and the company director, who should have seen what was going on over the span of half a decade and stepped in to put the ship back on course.
At the end of the day, though you guys all seem to be on this gamergate thing, I think it's much more likely that the whole thing is the result of incompetence and stupidity, not any SJW/gay/lesbian/feminist agenda.
