Wii U owners can stop expecting the latest Aliens game

Aliens: Colonial Marines Officially Cancelled for Wii U

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.

PR Lines Get Crossed, No Co-Op Included

DOOM 3: BFG Edition Impressions, Co-Op Correction

Running Co-Optimus is definitely a unique task within this industry.  It's not like other gaming news sites in that it's pretty obvious when you can cover a game.  An Xbox devoted site, for instance, always knows when a game is on the platform.  A racing game fan site knows when a game is about driving cars.  Co-Op though, isn't always cut and dry - and in the world of video game PR  - revealing your game has co-op isn't always in the cards until much later after a game is announced.

Instead of getting a PC port, PC gamers will be getting a F2P game instead

No Ghost Recon Future Soldier for PC; Ghost Recon Online Instead

If you're a PC gamer (and especially if you're an FPS PC gamer), then you're likely familiar with what I like to call Short-End-Of-The-Stick-Console-Portitis. Okay, so I just made that up now, but the heart of the matter is true. With a huge amount of blockbuster titles being developed on the consoles, there's many a time that the PC port versions are lackluster, or downright close to broken. Sometimes these ports are months or years later. Sometimes they just don't come to PC at all.

Toss me an ammo clip, get yourself in cover, the cancelled PS3 exclusive could have been special.

Eight Days Could Have Been a Buddy Co-Op Game

During E3 2006 I remember a standout video of a game called Eight Days.  The video took place at a desert diner and featured a gang related shootout between two cops and some thugs.  What made it stand out?  A slick cover system, smooth animations, and a some tense action sequences.  Sadly the Sony London developed game was canceled before it saw the light of day.

Project Dropship: A Square Enix Co-Op Game That Died Before it Lived

It was recently leaked that Square Enix's LA studio was (keyword: was) working on a co-op shooter for PSN and XBLA called Project Dropship. It was never publically announced and has sadly been cancelled. It's really a shame because it's reported that the game was being built with co-op play as a central foundation to the mechanics. We even have some videos of the game in action for those of you who are curious about this game that will likely never be finished and released.

Bonk: Brink of Extinction Is... Extinct

Sad news comes our way today, with news of a co-op classic retro-remake cancellation.  The ironically titled Bonk: Brink of Extinction is going the way of the dodo and the Tasmanian tiger.  The game was announced in 2009, and we hadn't heard much about it since then.  Developer Hudson cancelled the title, along with a Bomberman game for the 3DS, in the aftermath of the recent disaster in Japan.  Though disappointing for fans of classic co-op like myself, the news is certainly understandable given the circumstances.  Perhaps Bonk will turn up again at some later date; we can always hope.  But for now, you'll have to headbutt your friends in real life instead of over XBLA or PSN.

Remember Gun Loco? It's Cancelled.

Gun Loco is cancelled? Whaaaa? How could this be?  I mean, look at the above photo.  For the sake of sanitiy, lets start with the man in the middle.  Stylized to be sure, determined, definitely.  How about the guy to his left? Okay, we have a case of Toriyama hair, but that's forgivable.  And now the gentleman with the green afro. Nope, nothing offensive here.  What about the guy with the crown?  He must be some sort of king.  I'm sure he will be portrayed with great dignity in the following video (spoiler alert: nope).  Then there's the guy with the bunny head and the suspendered diapers... oh, I give up.

Canceled Mission - Bad Company 2's Onslaught Mode for PC Canned

Shazbot. Battlefield: Bad Company 2's co-op afterthought mode, Onslaught, will not be coming to PC, after all. Althought DICE has claimed that they are working too hard on making Battlefield 3 "the biggest launch in DICE's history", I wouldn't be surprised if Onslaught's somewhat low profitability was a major factor. The download-only title Battlefield 1943 has also been canceled on PC, which is no surprise; the hype for it is pretty much dead in the water now that Bad Company 2 has been on shelves for nearly a year.
