During a recent interview, designer Ben Cureton was asked about whether he can share anything from the Wii U version of Darksiders II. Cureton replied by saying he doesn’t want to get fired and therefore can’t say anything about Nintendo’s upcoming console, the Wii U.

Can you tell us anything about the Wii U version at all?

“I can’t say anything about the Wii U. I don’t want to get fired!”


  1. I don’t see how this is news. Other developers say that even as jokes about new projects and stuff. Then again, THQ/Darksiders team have already shared a good amount of info about the game and the system itself.


  2. That’s quite obvious…Maybe not necessarily fired but they’ll obviously get into trouble…And the way he worded it suggests it’s more of that, than he’s been told explicitly that talking about it will get him fired.


  3. Its coz the wii u is weak !! if he sais anything about the wii u , he will get fired ..coz nintendo wants to trick people into buying it .. Wii U is a piece of shit !


  4. LOL at this article, hardly news at all.

    Why is Nintendo so secretive about their specs? what are they hiding? Inferior tech? I think so They want people to buy the console and fool them into thinking this is a next gen box…

    And no the dude at Scribblenauts is not a reliable source… he is making a 2d GAME… not hard to make to be honest… :P same applies to TwoTribes who are making a cartoony puzzle game

    Assassin creed 3…yeah great 1080p but I can buy the game on a CURRENT GEN console rather than spend my money on a NEW console that is an overclocked 360… even the ex darksiders 2 guy said it is 7 years late. I take his word since he was a developer and actually know about tech unlike most on this site…who pretend they do.. LOLz…Also, what is the point in releasing Ass 3 when Ass 1 and 2 werent on Nintendo consoles? Poor nintendo fanboys (revolution) are going be confused. You can always youtube Let’s play videos and watch GAMERS play on CONSOLES you all DESPISE so so much :P

    and the dude at crytek says cryengine 3 (a CURRENT GEN engine) runs beautifully and a game from a well respected dev is using it… WHERE IS THE GAME? Marketing speak as always.

    People (outside of this site) are getting bored of this secretive shit and pushing them away from the hype train. I am not talking for myself but GAMERS everywhere. Nintendo fanboys not included because they gobble up Nintendo’s bullshit tactics as of late.


    • also ZombiU and rayman legends maybe exclusives but Ubisoft are obv gonna bring them to other consoles and PC…they love their money. Look at rayman origins… on every single platform including the shitty 3ds version that looked awful in 3d and felt laggy :P


    • That former darksiders dev did not work on the wii u at all. He claimed in he said that it was 7 years late based on speculation. That is about as reliable as a blind eye witness.


      • I am sure he has friends in the games industry who worked on it, game devs in the industry always share these things…again a common symptom of Nintendo fans…wishfull thinking :P just like before E3 when EVERYONE wanted a new zelda, starfox, smash bros etc etc etc all shown in one conference…you did get zelda, f zero etc…. in Nintendoland ROFL

        I love seeing people’s hopes get CRUSHED.


        • How is it wishful thinking? i pretty much stated the dev in my own words and pointed out how a dev who does work on a console is probably not very reliable in this situation. You then go on to stereotype all Nintendo fans, bring up E3 for some odd reason, and base your entire reply on a hunch that everybody shares what they are doing with each other. Rival companies do not share development plans. “I love seeing people’s hopes get CRUSHED.” Who are you responding to? Hope can only be crushed if stated or revealed. The entire reply is a mess.


    • Did you make yourself feel relevant by writing all of that? You truly have a pathetic life if you sit on a website all day, everyday, refreshing it, and explaining why you don’t like it what it’s about. It’s so sad you spend the majority of your time on something you hate. Your going to be the death of yourself. You are your own worst enemy…


    • Wow, you reached a new level of stupidity.
      First of all, go look at some launch day 360 games. Yeah, not so great looking, not mention they’re all terrible.
      Second, that guy from THQ didnt even work on the WiiU, he’s not even played the damn thing, how is his opinion any better than the stuff you posted? Totally bias opinionated garbage. And he was just having a little bitch fit due to being fired, swearing in a legitmate interview, basically doing what you do when someone prove you’re an idiot and you say, “shut up you fucking faggot fanboy HAHAHAHAHA wiiu is shit”. Gee, big man.

      Thirdly, about the CryEngine3 game…ermm….do you think that maybe, its being made? What do you want, a constant live stream overseeing the entire development of the game?
      Retro studios are making a game, we havent seen it, does that make it marketing talk? No, they just arent ready to show it.
      Games like Remember Me showed up this week, its been in development for years, yet novody knew anything about it, same with Watch Dogs. Its the developer, publishers and Nintendo choice when to show off a game, dont try to act as though you know the tiniest thing about marketing, when you all you do is sit on here (and before you say it, i did media studies at college, i know all about marketing, budgets, ect).

      And everyone is getting bored of this, not just “gamers” outside of Nintendo (give me a break), we all want to know about the system. But do you know why we dont?
      Fucking stupid cunts like you, and the unoriginal head honchos down at Sony and Microsoft. It took Microsoft LESS THAN A YEAR to respond with a “challenge” to the WiiU, even though it was a piece of crap. This is why the NDA is in affect, because the majority if the gaming world is full of unoriginal money grabbing bastards, and stupid graphic fetish norins like yourself.

      And do you really believe Ubisoft will put work into porting ZombiU and Rayman to other consoles, when they either have no similar control support to the WiiU, or ine that requires $500 worth of tech, including a handheld thats barely selling. No, they wont.


  5. I only wanna know whats going to be released this year on wii u anyway. I dont see what the point of announcing games that are coming out next year is going to accomplish. Just look at the gta v announcement for example. Its pointless.


  6. Considering that Sony is desperately looking for every little opportunity to churn out and over-hype a half-baked copy of anything Nintendo does, it’s not surprising that Nintendo has some strict NDA in place.


  7. I’m glad to see Sickr and Alba continue to post anything said about WiiU, dispite the Jealous comments of people who either don’t own a blog, or have a failing one.

    It’s also good to see, that with 3DS kicking ass, and WiiU ramping up to do the same, that the drones, trolls and Anti-Nintendo Fanboys are swamping to places like this to try and do some kind of damage. I waste very little time reading their comments anymore. They are repetative and ignorant.


  8. He didn’t say he would get fired, he said he doesn’t want to get fired. Meaning he didn’t know and didn’t want to take a chance.


  9. the nintendo will have a lot of probels selling alot of wii u console’s and if that is going to be true then Satoru Iwata should be fier for sure for alotof mistakes
