Modder repairs typo in Aliens: Colonial Militaries code, Transmission now employing copy editor

Aliens: Colonial Marines isn’t exactly called being the peak of computer game excellence. Launched on Feb. 11, 2013, the game was almost universally panned as having some of the most hilariously bad enemy AI in modern games, and it currently takes pleasure in a 45 Metacritic score.The now-shuttered Joystiq, gave the Gearbox-developed game a 20/100 score and said, “Aliens: Colonial Militaries isn’t frustrating since it couldn’t live up to lofty expectations, it’s disappointing due to the fact that it turned out to be such an unfettered disaster. “Things got so bad for SEGA and Transmission
