I don't care if the Wii U version is in 60fps or uses PC textures or whatever, it's still a crap game and people need to stop defending Gearbox for what they've done.

Wrong!!!! Its delayed cause Wii U version is the worst version of the 3.

According to a Sega Tester its the worst. Also Gearbox used the funds that was suppose to be for this game instead they used it to make Borderlands 2.

There might be a lawsuit pending as well.

Dont be fools people use your money elsewhere. This article is damage control on how bad the game really is.

No one here knows what is really going on. What we know is from a bunch of sources, and so far that's the only one to claim otherwise. Someone has some splain'in to do, we just don't know who.

Supposedly that guy never verified who he was, and then deleted his account. He said some things that contradicted what he was saying, but he also in other ways sounded very legit. Sometimes he threw a 'they' when it should have been 'We' out there, and stuff like that.

Fools would be two fold, those that hear enough and still buy it, or those that think they have wrongly and cancel a pre-order or make up their mind.

Right now, for the Wii U version, a clear minded individual cannot make up their mind yet, but they are skeptical and keeping a watchful eye after the other version being a debacle.

At some point we might find out it sucks, and at that point those that still buy the game would be foolish imo.

The game doesn't launch tomorrow, thus there is time to still figure out more as time goes by.

People get the whole point of analyzing things wrong. It's about seeing things as they truly are, not about how we want them to be.

I expect the game is probably trashy, but do I know that. No. Nothing has been shown to prove it is. We know the story of the other version is crappy, but part of that was simply in how it was presented with cut scenes missing and certain areas removed from the game, etc. That might not be the case with the Wii U version.

You have to know what you do know and what you don't know, about the pros and cons.

What's likely isn't certain, neither for the positive or negative. All we know is the game is being made by a different dev. It's later. It wasn't built with PS3/360 specs (especially ram) in mind.

We have subjective things like multiple people stating it's the best version. We have the rumor that the 'kick ass trailer' was really Wii U footage, which while not quite up to the demo footage, is a helluva lot closer than the PS3/360/PC version was.

Then on the other side we have that reddit leak guy who wasn't confirmed. Might not be true. Might indeed be true. Might indeed be partially true because the guy might be real, but might not know as much as he thinks he does...i.e. he might be partially wrong about some stuff, but right about other stuff.

The OP of that reddit post was about the entire situation, the Wii U version got a small blip. He might have just saw the minigames in action. So maybe those minigames suck and the Weyland mercs are there and other stuff that keeps it somewhat crappy, but other aspects are decently better.

So really we don't know much concretely, heard lots of rumors of which the validity of might be both high and low, and thus to we can guess it will suck, but that's all we can do.

No one knows what a coin flip will turn up as, in every coin flip, someone is guessing. When we see a review, that's when we'll get real info, and hopefully the person doing it has been following the plot lines so they can give us the answers we seek.

No matter what is-

They should improve it.

They should not release the game at all if they aren't going to improve it, why waste the publishing money on something that is going to flop.

How are the PS360 and PC versions last minute? Aliens Colonial Marines was announced in 2008, way before the Wii U was released or even announced.

What I think happened in reality is that Gearbox threw Colonial Marines to the side and worked on it when they weren't working on anything of their own or anything that would have made them a much larger profit. They acquired Duke Nukem Forever, released Borderlands in 2009, Duke Nukem Forever in 2011, Borderlands 2 in 2012, they're finally releasing Colonial Marines? Why has it taken them this long to get the game out if it was any sort of priority at all?

If they didn't put any effort into the PS360 and PC versions announced years ago, then you're probably guaranteed to be disappointed about the Wii U version.

I feel sorry for Sega hiring Gearbox to do the game for them. If this wasn't going to be a priority for them, then they shouldn't have ever taken the job. Colonial Marines seems like it was nothing more than a cash grab for Gearbox.

i can imagine that the wii u version will be better. but i cancelled my wii u preorder anyway. i do not want to support such lousy developpers/publishers. no money from my side.

until SEGA confirms the date for the Wii U release and show actual gameplay demo (the ACTUAL and not a "supposed"), everything should be taken with a grain of salt.

if it is indeed better then good, otherwise for now it's all wishful thinking.

Some WiiU games apparently have a blue tint to them so maybe it will look closer to the demo.

I'd hope that they'd do an 'Alone in the dark' to rework it to look like the demo.

Kinda saw this:

"Feb 16, 2013 by RawmeatCowboy
Here’s something that’s a bit different from what we’ve been hearing lately. According to an anonymous source,"

Anonymous source....

there we have it~

I don't really see how they can improve it much without rewriting the whole game, but ok...
