I want this game, and still not release date for Wii U. I don't want to pick this up on PS3, but if the release date is too far off from the PS3 version I might. UGGGG....

I was hoping (ignorantly) it would hit wii u close to the same time as pc/ps3/360 so I could use the game pad with the motion tracker but it looks like I'll be getting the pc version now.

I knew the Wii U version would get pushed back further we probably wont be seeing it for months. It's lame because the trailer shows the release date with the Wii U logo along side the others ;(

Gearbox was behind duke nukem and that was hyped and ended up trash so i hope this doesnt end up that way because i want a good alien game. Previewers had good and bad to say, but i dont like that it is said the aliens are like sponges and the character animations suck and feel stiff. another negative ive heard is that although back drops are beautiful they are shiny and look fake.

"Gearbox was behind duke nukem"

No they weren't at least for the most part. They pratically took what was developed so far and about to be scrapped completely and released it with some of their work put into it. They didn't develope it from ground up, I think it was pretty much done in development when they were given it.

@ below, yeah that's true but honestly I'm glad it released even if it was crap. People waited and waited, I think it was just really a service to them

Oh ok thanks for clarification, but either way Duke Nukem was mediocre and they should have known better than to release that game the way it was if it was going to have their name on it.
I see 2k games, 3d realms, gearbox and piranha games all had a hand in it. Gearbox getting the game handed off to them in the end.

Yeh I think Gearbox just made sure Duke worked and that's it. I don't think they used their creativity department at all to get it out the door.

Quick service to allow the fans to see what could have been.

Gearbox was behind Duke Nukem, But also Halo:Combat Evolved, Brothers in Arms, Half Life, Counter Strike Condition Zero, 007 NightFire, Tony Hawk 3, Borderlands, I would say they create far more great games than bad.

Any idea when the Wii U version will be released?

Hey, yea...lets all be a bunch of dumb D-bags, and give disagrees to someone that is asking a very valid question. Its not even a statement or an opinion any of you asshats can disagree with.

Several issue i have here with both the title of this article and the game itself.

1. the title is miss leading. Stating that the game has gone gold will make some ppl belive that it has been reviewed (by a games reviewer not the manufactor) and given said gold rating! i.e.(9/10, 90%, etc, etc).
2. Given the fact that this game has been past from pillar to post, from one team to another, then another, for more than 5yrs now, i am skecptical about how well this game will actually be.
But that said, i do live in hope that it will be at least be a half enjoyable co-op game.

cut and pase...

"When a game is said to have "gone gold," it means that the code has been finalized and is ready to be duplicated for distribution. The term goes back to the days when recordable CDs were manufactured using gold film, leading the source CD to be called the "golden master." Unlike the music industry, it is not a reference to the number of copies sold. It will typically take several weeks for a game to ship to stores and become available to consumers after it has gone gold."

Its not the titles fault YOU dont know what going gold means.
