Can Gearbox eventually redeem themselves? Well, this certainly is a start. It may take some time, but if Gearbox patches the game to the state of E3 2011, and they eventually make a public apology, then it may ease some tensions.

On another note, this 4GB patch does bring some visual and gameplay improvements such higher resolution textures, improved lighting, and improved AI.

-Improved texture resolution
-Various visual improvements

-Tweaked enemy and friendly AI to be more aggressive and responsive.
-Modified campaign difficulty to account for improved AI responsiveness.

However, there are still lingering issues such as the character animations, dialog, and story execution that may plague the game indefinitely. At least these patches will address the most glaring issues of the game. There will always be some hate for what Gearbox has initially released, but this is a step in the right direction.
