New game dev AE Games pledges Wii U support, lashes out at other 3rd parties for ignoring the system

New video game development studio AE Games is fed up with the lack of support, and treatment 3rd parties have shown toward the Wii U and it’s customers. In a PR statement, the new studio pledged support for the Wii U, then went on to outline all the bad business practices Ubisoft, EA, Konami, 2K, and others have demonstrated toward the Wii U. (EA, Industry, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Wii U)

Oh Big words. Interesting.

I'll reserve my judgement on them until they reveal their games.

Something smells fishy about this. It could be an elaborate hoax. The site is made on the blogger platform plus the press release is rather unprofessional, by that I mean sounds like it was written by a fanboy. I'm leaning towards a hoax here.

AE games - EA games
Complaining about mass effect 3 on the wii u.

We are getting trolled here

sounds like an April Fools article released early

gonintendo isn't exactly a site to do their homework when they have the opportunity to post some positive news. I'm sure sites like WiiUDaily have already mirrored this report, even.

I wouldn't be shocked if it was true or false. Developers troll just like fanboys. Hopefully it is true for more 3rd party Nintendo support.

Wondering why no one is approving this
Neonridr  +   200d ago
because it puts Nintendo in a positive light.
Hicken  +   200d ago
So what's the excuse now that it HAS been approved?
Neonridr  +   200d ago
@Hicken - it was a joke, :P

In all honestly if it was another Nintendo doom and gloom article it would have been approved before the first person even finished reading it. Just the way this site works.
swice  +   199d ago
Hicken, he's hoping to spark the move of approval by complaining that it hasn't been approved.

"What now?" - now, he basks in his victory

If this company even exists and this isn't some troll pisstake (as guy above says AE-EA etc...) watch the ccompany go bankrupt and s fast if it thinks it can start up and afford to go on the console and spend time on the console least likely to make them a profit....
OtakuDJK1NG  +   200d ago

Dunban67  +   199d ago

The site design isn't too bad but the graphics look very amateur-ish. Especially the logo.
fonger08  +   200d ago
Unless they formed over the weekend there's no listing in incorporate listing in North Carolina for an AE Games company. There's an AE mobile games but that's not the same company. This is just angry blogger with too much time on their hands.

What a nice team. Certainly looks like they are interested in building bridges. Not.

Let's see him talking when his game fails to sell on WiiU.
FlappyBird  +   200d ago
Sounds more like a butt hurt fanboy. If it is it is actually a new low for famboyism and it makes us true Nintendo fans look pathetic.
Justindark  +   199d ago
and yet you play flappy crap aye? and if you read it and still think 3rd party dont deserve to sell crap then u have issues.
Dunban67  +   200d ago
Can people just make stuff up and release it on N4G?

It seems any type of content is allowed to post here

Why is it if you have an opinion that's not shared by people you are being called a troll or say someone is trolling?
OtakuDJK1NG  +   199d ago
that only sony ponies logic
JackieCruise69  +   200d ago
I don't even know what to believe. I thought this was a good thing before I saw their 'website'. I'm not even sure now because it just.. doesn't look professional. I guess we'll find out on Friday. I'm going to just shoot my optimistic side down before I regret it.
OtakuDJK1NG  +   199d ago
Don't expect a website to be top notch when a New Development Company is formed. That very stupid to assume.
zalanis  +   200d ago
i cant believe all the hate simply cuz they want to support wiiu. I mean if they tank, they tank not the bloggers on this site. Still they do have a point on the mass effect and the recent delaying of wiiu version of watch dogs. In all they said, they arent lying

"i cant believe all the hate simply cuz they want to support wiiu. I mean if they tank, they tank not the bloggers on this site. Still they do have a point on the mass effect and the recent delaying of wiiu version of watch dogs. In all they said, they arent lying"

while, i see what you are saying, but look and read what they stated on the web site!

The person or the people that are looking to make game's on the WiiU also means that it is very unlikely that developer publisher will get no other company to work with them, and at the way they wrote that disclaimer that maybe even Nintendo will even go out of their way to support them.

You see Burning bridges is not something you really want to do in game development area.

If you are a small up and coming development studio. and telling the company you are trying to get your support that you are, kinda shows off to that company you are not looking at this as a business 1st. Flattery is one thing but killing your chance to even build up strong skill enough to Pass the QA that Nintendo may hold for iP's.

Means they need to prove Nintendo without a doubt that they have strong enough skill for that publisher!

If they can that would be fantastic, but if they cannot than that would be one thing.
Justindark  +   199d ago
agreed ppl expect the wii u versions to sell good when they arent even made good, they dont put any effort into the games so wii owners dont use the money they put effort into making on them.

AE = AdultEntertainment?

well sign me up !
Ol_G  +   199d ago
I hope they deliver after these comments

I dont know if im entirely convinced this is a real dev. But hey, I guess we'll find out on Friday.

These guys are awesome. I wish them the best.
yugovega  +   199d ago
terrible fanboys. granted the nintendo fans are upset about missing some games but this is a new low. when a companies logo isn't trademarked nor is in used in the browsers header it isn't a good sign. maybe i'm wrong, but if i am and a company is an upstart there is not way they would have anything worth seeing in only a weeks time.
Up_N_U  +   199d ago
off topic but here is what the wii U should be called:
Ultra Nintendo Entertainment System (UNES)for short. damn that kinda sounds cool.
fatstarr  +   199d ago
I like them so far. smells like a rebirth of high voltage.

they pushed them wii graphics
