Randy Pitchford is president of Gearbox Software, the esteemed developer behind hits like Borderlands and its sequel, Borderlands 2. Unfortunately they’re also the studio behind the widely panned Aliens: Colonial Marines. Talking with fans over the last few days on Twitter, he’s been more than willing to speak his mind quite clearly.
