TPG Review: Aliens: Colonial Marines – Why Randy? WHY?

TPG - Six years have come and passed since the sudden announcement of Aliens: Colonial Marines, a game enthusiastically advertised as set to fix all the wrongs of Alien 3 and answer many of the unresolved plot threads in the franchise. As a longtime fan of the films, this announcement had me filled with extreme excitement. While I did have some initial fears that A:CM would be yet another terrible film based game, a “gameplay” demo shown at the E3 2011 event quickly vanquished those thoughts and left me to craving more. However, upon release, the supposed finished product wasn’t even a work in progress compared to that E3 2011 demo but rather it was a work in regress. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 38/100

Do we think the Wii U version will still happen?

No one really knows. There have been anonymous reports from Gearbox developers and industry insiders saying that the Wii U version has been postponed indefinitely, which is pretty much the same as being cancelled. But there haven't been any official confirmations. I personally don't think it will still release.

Lol. They should release a Randy Pitchford lying about Aliens CM on blu-ray. It will sell like hot-cakes lol.

Just imagine; 3D, 1080p, deleted scenes and a special booklet on how to lie. Oh, it is also available at Imax in 4D where his saliva spits in your face while he is lying to you, with his little smirk.

In retrospect, he's a damn good liar. If the gaming thing doesn't work out for him, he'd make a great lawyer. I wonder if he really expected the game to be great at that point in time, or if he thought they could make it much better before production. I don't thing there's any way he planned on making a turd. Like I've said before... with the Alien License, the developer is handed a golden ticket of canon to make a game about. I don't understand how they manage to screw it up.
