‘Colonial Marines’ tester claims bad minigames all that’s new in Wii U version

The rabbit hole goes deeper. In the latest bit of Aliens: Colonial Marines drama, an anonymous tester on the game has taken to Reddit to answer any and all questions pertaining to the game. And boy, is it a doozy. The tester’s account has since been deleted, along with all the answers to the great questions being asked. But that hasn’t stopped the internet machine to get some great quotes from the AMA.

Man, this game is one of the biggest gaming debacles in recent memory. So many conspiracy theories and controversies. I wonder what kind of effect it will have on Gearbox and Sega.

One things for sure after this: DON'T BUY LICENSED GAMES FROM GEARBOX!

They fooled you once with Duke Nukem Forever, and they foole you AGAIN with Aliens Colonial Marines!
Duke Nukem Forever was announced in the late 90s, switched consoles and developers over the next few years, and finally released by Gearbox in 2011. However, THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE RELEASED THE GAME! They should have just scrapped all the past resources, and created a new DN game from scratch.

As for Aliens, Randy Pitchford lied. He is not an Aliens fan like he claims to be in interviews. If he really was, he would have not outsourced most of the game to Timegate. Then, there was Sega saying Gearbox did not outsource. Well, if that's so, they should not have worked on two games at once. They should have focused everything on Borderlands 2 first, and then focus everything on Aliens. I mean, really, if YOU were a fan of Aliens, and had the honor of making an Aliens game, and having your script OKd as "canon" to the original Aliens movie, WOULD YOU LET SOMEONE WORK ON IT INSTEAD OF YOU??

From the interview videos, I though Randy was cool. But, he fooled gamers twice

I don't see why people constantly mention Duke Nukem Forever. I mean what about the game made you think it was going to be an amazing experience? Everything about it was said to be a train wreck and color me surprised when the game was far less than amazing. Also I am happy Gearbox released it, since now we know what Duke Nukem Forever was like. Hopefully they make another title, but based off how they're treating Borderlands 2... it might be for the best to let it stay dead.

I can't see Gearbox coming away from this unscathed, even if only half of these rumours about their wrong doings were true they don't deserve to get away with the huge lie they've been telling, IMO.

Sega will probably be OK in the end, though they were the publishers they weren't directly involved in the development of ACM since Gearbox were in fact the developers. Still it' not like Sega shouldn't take some of the blame, they must have bee aware of the mess to some extent.

I dont see this 'saga' ending any time soon.

Thirty3Three1228d ago

Aww. They added more horrid things just for the WiiU :)
Enjoy,
Love,

I REALLY wanted this game to be good!!! :(

Myst1228d ago

Same here :( Same here.

At least a MP horde mode would have been perfect for this game.

JaredH1228d ago (Edited 1228d ago )

The funny thing is they announced a horde like mode, Bug Hunt. But it's DLC and one of the four packs of the season pass...

PopRocks3591228d ago (Edited 1228d ago )

Well. Goddamn it. I mean I hope that isn't true, but damn it. Bad mini-games? Really? No extra effort in the AI, not closer to the demo, I mean what the hell? I mean, I still want to try the game, but why would the Wii U version's only difference be something like THAT?

Summons751228d ago

Because that's what happens when you get a new generation system and everyone demands a current/last gen game to be ported to it when devs should just be working on brand new titles for next gen.

"Well. Goddamn it. I mean I hope that isn't true, but damn it. Bad mini-games? Really? No extra effort in the AI, not closer to the demo, I mean what the hell?"

What the hell were you expecting, a totally revamped game talk about delusional.

If it's a pos on pc, why would the wiiu version be magically better, oh right because randy is bff's with the wiiu lol.

Yeah gearbox gives the ps3,360, pc and the butchered version and the wii u, get the real version.

"I mean, I still want to try the game, but why would the Wii U version's only difference be something like THAT?"

Because it's a 3rd party multiplatform game trying to make money not a 1st party exclusive, showing off a unique feature or gameplay opportunity of the wii u.

I love the nintendo guy assuming everyone else but them got screwed.

This a surprise to you, wow.

PopRocks3591228d ago (Edited 1228d ago )

"What the hell were you expecting, a totally revamped game talk about delusional."

Wow. A strawman argument. Nice goin' stranger.

Actually no, I expected the primary difference to be better graphics like randy Pitchford said, duh. It doesn't take rocket science to figure that out.

Also, if the rumors are anything to go by, Timegate and Gearbox managed to botch the 360/PS3 and PC versions while Demiurge managed to handle the Wii U version more smoothly. Also the Wii U version of Ninja Gaiden 3 was best, was it not? And now that version is also getting ported.

Seriously, there's no reason to be so condescending about this. Your base is all about this being impossible when it's anything but.

EDIT: " I love the nintendo guy assuming everyone else but them got screwed."

When the hell in my original comment did I say anything even remotely close to that? All of the versions were screwed over, you goober. If the Wii U version was botched as well, it's not exactly the largest of shockers. My point was there should be more to it than some minigames if there is going to be some boasting about this version being the definitive one.
