    I’m excited but I wonder if this game will be any good… Thats the real question

  • Ultranist

    The only good alien game is Aliens vs Predator 2

    My ammo is ready!

  • Andrew Gonzalez

    This is going to be awesome..I hope

  • Paul Tanner

    dont forget the game hasnt been developed by gearbox software as its been outsourced

    • AlienFanatic

      In this day and age that doesn’t really mean anything.  There are plenty of good programmers out there and just because Gearbox didn’t code it doesn’t mean it won’t be every bit as good as the others.

      I think the game was started by Gearbox and that means they had a lot to do with the way it looks.  I’m sure they did a lot of supervising on the project.  I know they started late on the Wii U version and that’s why they had to outsource it.  That being said Randy Pichford himself said the Wii U version is the best looking and playing version of the game, so knowing this guys pasion for games and love for Nintendo I think we have a lot to look forward to with Aliens: Colonial Marines.

    • They are the same people who helped develop Borderlands, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Medal of Honor: Airborne, Brothers in Arms (3 of them). But at the same time they developed Shoot Many Robots 🙁    But sicnce there previous FPS port development has been as high quality as the main developers, i’ve come to think they know what they’re doing 🙂

  • First of all Ashley you made a typo 😉 the article itself says Q1 2012 shouldn’t that be Q1 2013 😉 like in the header? Couldn’t help but notice it.

    Other then that this game is the only game I’m actually looking forward (besides the launch released title of ZombiU). Unbelievable how this game looks, no matter which system these shots are from (even though it is claimed wiiu is the best looking version) this is by far the best looking game I’ve seen in a long time, reminds me of Alien Trilogy on the PS only looking waaaayy better, for this game and ZombiU I want that WiiU 🙂 I love the Alien universe.

  • cant wait for this.- 

  • kevinaaaa

    Wiiudaily has many typos.   I do not believe they proof read what they write.   Its ok for comments but for the articles to have big mistakes is another thing.

  • nah. im sorry but after how hugely excited i was, im not waiting for the wii u version just to get a few meaningless mini games. nintendo needs to do something more with 3rd party support before xbox and sony announce. then no ones going to care.

    • NkoSekirei

       then gtfo troll nintendo has a great lineup of games for this year and even more will be announced at e3

        Calm down, the guy was just giving his opinion, so I wouldn’t label him a troll unless that changes. And while technically he didn’t have to say it the way he did, I agree with what he said.

  • TheLast

    I’m not as keen on shooters as others, but I’ll pick this up to support 3rd-parties since the game looks really good.
