Aliens: Colonial Marines Wii U mysteriously delayed

Thursday, 4th April 2013 02:13 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Aliens: Colonial Marines still has not received a new released date for Wii U having missed a targeted March launch. A Sega representative simply told Gamespot that the publisher has no comment on the matter, and Gearbox and port developer Demiurge are also playing mum. The shooter attracted a great deal of attention at release due to its poor critical reception, and discrepancies between promotional materials and the final product have even drawn the wrath of the UK’s Advertising Standards Agency.

    Surprising? Not.

    Although whatever happened to Randy saying “Wii U is the best console version”?

    This could have been the best version but we all know Randy and co were lying about every version and everything the whole time. Such a shame, having the classic Alien sensor on Wii U’s Gamepad would have been really awesome.

    ^ On my phone so i cant bing up a link, but the Sega source that revealed most of the game was made by some other dev also said that the Wii U version was by far the worst. With a bit of luck Gearbox have taken it into their own hands to have something that doesnt suck and save them some face, but that would hardly redeem the other versions.

    Just received a leak, it says this-
    “We are glad to announce that Wii U version is indeed the best one, since it will never be released. So no more tricking consumers ”

    Do you really bing? I google things, much better, trust me :D

    @1 You can’t have the best version of a turd, you can have a polished turd. But at the end of the day its a turd :) the only way for it to be the best version is if Sega say what you said at @6.
    @5 You use bing? I can’t necessarily say its bad but using google is just a more popular and easily more effective.

    I am guessing Gek was typing “bring”, not bing, I was joking :)

    True. It’s really a shame. I still remember the Wii U announcement vid with Aliens gameplay and the promise of sensor on touch pad. Gearbox really fucked up by both lying to everyone and pretty much ruining one of the greatest IPs of all time.

    Holy hell, good call. Randy wasn’t lying about it when he appeared during Wii U vids. This is the best version!
