The folks at Gearbox, who are working on Aliens: Colonial Marines for the Wii U, have not held back with their praise for the platform, and they’ve shared even more in the latest issue of Nintendo Gamer. Randy Pitchford, for instance, has said that he “loves” the platform, and is:
…very excited about it because it gives us a path to realise some things that are more future-looking than we could if we were only on the current generation.
Then Brian Cozzens, the game’s art director said the game itself is “going to look awesome” (which, admittedly, does sound just a tad biased coming from him), and that:
…it’s unbelievable how many things that exist in the Aliens’ franchise actually work for that controller. It’s been a real treat, quite frankly, because the controller and the features of the system enable us to do things we can’t do with the other consoles.
Hype. Hype. Hype. Hype. Hype.
