This is my weekly blog of everything Nintendo this week. I made this blog so you can have a one place that would give you all the information you need from the week. Look through it and if you find something I overlooked or would like to mention something, leave a comment!

Week March 31st

As you may know Deus Ex is coming to the Wii U. Lots of news has been floating around about this game. It appears that it's the best of all the platforms. The boss fights have been refined, the graphics refined, controls refined, added content, etc. This is on my radar and should be on yours too.

As you may know, Aliens Colonial Marines is still not out for the Wii U. Sega was supposed to have released this game in late March for the console. When asked what's up, Sega could only comment, "Still no comment on AMC, sorry!" This game was on my radar about a year ago. Since it's release on other platforms, it's clear that the game is behind horrible. I am interested to see if perhaps Sega and/or Gearbox is reworking the game for a Wii U release later this year. Time will tell!

There were two system updates released this week. One for the Wii U and one for the 3DS. The Wii U update refreshed the communities and limited the viewing to 100 posts to speed up loading times. The 3DS just fix some issues that some people experience on the last update. Neither update really did much but if you see the light go up, you know you have an update waiting.

Also, Nintendo is touting big news for Pokemon X/Y soon as well. A new Mewtwo form is floating around and perhaps we will hear more about this.

Sad news for the week

This may or may not be sad as the game really really sucks. But it was announced that Sega will be cancelling Aliens Colonial Marines for the Wii U. This came as the game was released for other platforms months ago and has received very poor reviews. I was hoping for a more polished release but it appears that they have given up on this title, as should you.
