In news that probably shocks no one, Sega has officially confirmed that the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development. The latest Aliens game, developed by Gearbox and published by Sega, came out mid February of this year on PS3, 360, and PC; however, the promised Wii U version was conspicuously absent from Q1 2013. There was no comment by Sega or Demiurge (the developer in charge of the Wii U port) then about its absence, leading to speculation about the port's cancellation. Today it's official: there's no plans of it ever happening.
There’s no doubt that most of us can share in the disappointment that is Aliens: Colonial Marines. However, Gearbox IS trying to correct their mistakes by fixing the errors that have been plaguing all versions of the game since launch. A recent update to the console versions may give players a reason to give the game a second chance.
Aliens: Colonial Marines released a new objective-based cooperative mode yesterday. "Bug Hunt" is a survival mode which allows four players to team up and fight against 30 waves of xenomorphs and enemy soldiers. There are three new maps, dubbed Broadside, Mercenary, and Tribute. Players can use the money they earn from kills to capture beacon points and to buy better weapons and ammo.
Aliens: Colonial Marines has received a massive patch on the PC bringing it up to date AND past the recently patched console version of the game. The four player co-op shooter was released to mostly negative reviews due to buggy gameplay, poor AI, and unimpressive visuals. While we gave the game a 3 out of 5 for co-op play, it definitely wasn't worth the $60. It's a good thing it's down to $35 already.
Aliens: Colonial Marines may not have lived up to its potential, but Gearbox isn't sitting back with the title. Updates continue to flow for all version of the game fixing issues and enhancing the game as we work towards the first official piece of DLC. The Xbox 360 version of the game has been updated today with a bunch of these corrections, while the PS3 and PC version will be updated shortly with similar fixes.

There is a bit of a problem regarding save data for Aliens: Colonial Marines. The problem in question is a nasty bug that is completely wiping out save files for the Xbox 360 version of the game. Sega recognizes that a "small number of users" are experiencing the bug, which is wiping out their save data and resetting their progress.
Aliens: Colonial Marines launched today and the reviews are not so good. Hey, at least we get to see one of the most quoted lines of all time used in almost every single review! Brilliant. But since A:CM doesn't seem to be causing eye cancer, I'm sure some fans are still going to enjoy it. Maybe. I guess I'm not so sure about that. Somebody, somewhere, might like it. I don't know. My only experience with the game was from a short session at E3 that was actually quite enjoyable, but not everyone is a sexual Tyrannosaurus, like me. Apparently I played the best part.
It's time to team up and take on the xenomorph infestation marine.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will finally see the light of day next week, over four years after the game was announced. The Gearbox developed title will focus on cooperative play between marines as they take on swarms of alien baddies set in the familiar universe. To celebrate the launch, publisher SEGA has sent along a fresh look at the trailer called "Contact." If it seems familiar, a shorter version of it was released last year.
I'm getting a real "kill all non-humans" vibe from early February. Dead Space 3 drops the first week of of the month, and then a week later we will be treated to Aliens: Colonial Marines. It must be hunting season for necro- and xenomorphs. Not only will both games feature humanity asserting itself as the dominant life form in the galaxy, both games will have a healthy supply of DLC.
Aliens: Colonial Marines has a kick ass new trailer out today. It's actually called "Aliens: Colonial Marines - Kick Ass Trailer." Damn, Gearbox, I just got used to typing "badass" in each and every one of our Borderlands 2 stories. Now you're going to go and change it up on me? Anyway, this trailer is all sorts of kick ass. I think. I have mixed feelings on this one. Why don't you check it out and let us know what you think?

But the news isn't ALL good, Wii U owners looking to use that gamepad as a motion tracker aren't going to get their hands on the game on February 12th.
