Oh, Gearbox. They made so many promises with Aliens Colonial Marines. Not only that, they had so many good things to say about the Wii U. For one, they said the Wii U version would be the “best looking one“, and that the Wii U GamePad is the “best controller for hardcore games“. They said a lot of things…
Officially, the game is still on track for release on the Wii U, but we pretty much gave up on the idea of seeing the game on the new Nintendo console. And that’s not a bad thing, because Aliens Colonial Marines is an awful game (having played it on PC), so awful that no gamer should waste his time or money on it.
However, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford — probably the least popular person in the gaming industry these days — says that they’re doing the best they can to bring the game to the Wii U. He said in an interview with GameSpot that the game “looks cool” on the Wii U and that it’s up to SEGA to release it. The way things look now, it’s unlikely we’ll see the game on the Wii U.
But that’s okay, because judging by (pretty much) everyone’s reaction to the game, Aliens Colonial Marines is an awful pile of junk. It’s one game that we can say we’re glad won’t be on the Wii U anytime soon. If we’re lucky, SEGA might just give up on the Wii U and cut their losses on this whole project.
