Okay, this is pretty good
Last week, a wild but little-known story about Aliens: Colonial Marines resurfaced and gained more traction. In short: a modder discovered a typo in the game’s .ini file that had big repercussions for the way Xenomorphs act. The typo — “Teather” instead of “Tether” — was messing with the AI.
Some people laughed, some sympathized, and others just looked on in horror. I wasn’t sure we’d hear anything from Gearbox Software about the years-old incident, but the studio has playfully responded.
