Yeah.....no ones gonna miss this stinking pile....but what they should have brought to the Wii U is
Borderlands 2.

That would help the Wii U's situation at least a little bit.

You know your game is an abomination, when during the "Great Nintendo Game Drought of 2013" Wii U owners collectively rejoice your game being cancelled for their platform.

Ouch! But it was to be expected, after all the controversy surrounding the title. ;)

NYC_Gamer  +   820d ago

I'm pretty sure Randy Pitchford deserves a slap in the face from every person who has ever played a video game.

Nah. That just dog shit pick up from the ground and in a bag.

Nintendo REJECTED that trash before it could even step foot on the Wii U. Keep your garbage on the Playstation and Xbox consoles where they BELONG, developers.

Even Sega feels bad about it being on Nintendo Console.

Yeah, a good version of the game would have been great.

I guess whatever they had could not be salvaged OR maybe it is just the Bad Press is going to = low sale regardless of how good the wiiU version may be.

I thought it would have been smart for them to have tweaked the engine and just made the game better.

With the amount of work already put into it, surely they could have moved it up the scale at least 3 spaces.

Guess not.
maniacmayhem  +   820d ago
Damn.

Bad press and consumer reaction can change how things are done. Lets hope that no other dev makes the mistake of showing something so good and not being able to deliver in the end.

After the terrible reviews, I'm pretty sure no one would buy it anyway. I'll be patient and wait for a quality title.
doomtrain  +   820d ago
you'r right . We , the masses , should just follow what our very prestigious gaming authorities tell us .
after all , they did get a 60,000 dollar gaming reviewers education and they must know what they are all talking about otherwise how would they get their opinions posted on the internet..............

I generally agree with your comment, except for the fact that every single person on the internet said it sucks. Then, I tend to believe it.

HonestDragon  +   820d ago
Well, I'm not the least bit surprised. Besides, I doubt anyone would have bought it given the reviews it had from the other ports.
richierich  +   820d ago
And all the BS that came from Randy Pitchfords mouth
greatcrusader44  +   820d ago
Lol the the best version of Colonial Marines is the one that doesn't exist? Seems about right.

Well - Can't say I'm dissapointed. I hate the First-Person Shooter genre - But that isn't completely the reason why I'm happy.

It's a terrible game, end of. I, like many others, want third-party games on the Wii U, no doubt about it. BUT - that isn't to say people want ANY third-party games on the Wii U. Shovelware is shovelware. Doesn't belong anywhere. If the game is garbage, whether it counts as "third-party support" or not - keep it away.
givemeshelter  +   820d ago
The game was craptastic and an abomination to begin with so no loss there that it's canceled.
DigitalAnalog  +   820d ago
Well it's seems that Randy Pitchford was right after all: It truly is the most DEFINITIVE version out there.
PopRocks359  +   820d ago
And that's that it seems. It's a shame the dev's work was basically wasted, but then who knows how this version would have ultimately turned out...
PopRocks359  +   820d ago
Four phantom disagrees? Really guys?
Whymii  +   820d ago
I call them snipers. They like to have a say without being seen just incase people realise what small minded fanboys that they really are. Sadly N4G is full of them.

In some ways they're worse than the other fanboys that believe that freedom of speech excuses their immature ravings about which console or game is the best and how all others 'sux'. At least these clowns have the guts to speak up and be counted, now all they need is the capacity for rational thought...

Randy Pitchford is full of so much shit. The WiiU version will be the best version, such a joke.

It was expected
Shnazzyone  +   820d ago
That was a close one.
neogeo  +   820d ago
Why am I the only person pissed off? I wanted to rent this garbage and beat it over a weekend. I only have a WiiU now because my PS3 broke so I'm stuck into ps4 comes out and this thing need more GAMES! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Shnazzyone  +   820d ago
I've been killing time with zen pinball and COD with wiimote controls. Which is pretty awesome surprisingly

oh well, back to the drawing board.

if however, Demiurge did create a better than the original game (say the "Demo" clips are really from Wii U), then we'll probably be hearing "noises" from their devs griping how bad they felt about the cancellation.
ARESWARLORD  +   820d ago
Great this game is the new ET for Atari.
MasterCornholio  +   820d ago
The Wii U version is the best version of the game because Wii U owners wont be able to suffer the horrors of this garbage.

But imagine the poor PS3, XBOX360 and PC owners who had to go through this terrible game.

Edit: Why are Nintendo fans so mad at this cancellation? Seriously even if the Wii U version was better it still is a horrible game to play. So stop acting like the Wii U has some sort of magic power to turn crap games into a quality title.
