Default A:CM Hot Fixes Rolling Out (4/30/13)

A series of hot fixes for Aliens: Colonial Marines are currently active. Information on exactly what a hot fix is, as well as what they address, can be found below.

Quote:
A hot fix is automatically applied at the "Press Start" screen when Aliens: Colonial Marines is connected to the internet. In general, hot fixes are used to temporarily address issues between major updates. Hot fixes are not permanent -- they are temporarily stored in memory during the game session and lost upon exiting Aliens: Colonial Marines.

To ensure that you receive hot fixes, make sure that your system is connected to the internet when Aliens: Colonial Marines boots up. A hot fix differs from an update in that an update contains changes that are permanently stored on your system and only needs to be downloaded once.

Hot Fixes
(PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)

Why do these hot fixes make the xenos only weaker? -_- I'll try to compare the differences when I play, but if the claymore problems stop spam killing me, mostly cause they glitch and I can't see them, then I'll be ok with this.

I'm telling you, if reviewers had seen bug hunt during the reviews the scores would have been higher. Maybe not 9/10 scores but it could have brought the game up from a 4/10 to a 6 or even 7/10. Infact, maybe this could have even saved the Wii U version from being cancelled. There was no good reason for this mode to be DLC in the first place. You dont see Call of Duty pulling out their Zombies mode and making that DLC do you? Penny wise but pound foolish.

Wow! that's really awesome, NOT!

Been over a month since any update/patch and now do we get something worthwhile, hell no! all we get is a crappy list of Hot Fixes, PATHETIC.

Nothing worthwhile done for the campaign yet again, no improvements to all the constant screen tearing etc. just a pointless change to Recruit difficulty, oh dear.

As for the fixes to versus, are people still playing online? last I heard online was dead.

I know I will get a lot of stick for this, but "IMO" Gearbox are full of it and totally useless and have never had any intention of properly trying to fix this total mess of a game, all they care about is Borderlands this & Borderlands that, BORING!

Thanks. The rupture and rage traits needed to be weakened
