    eh no one asked for this, not many will buy it unless they are stuck for nextgen launch games.

    Looks like they went full Iron Sky... which is fine by me!

    Still, the last game was painfully mediocre at best, so I'll keep my expectations guarded. I just hope this game won't be a Wolfen-stain on the franchise's legacy.

    Yay, another shooter game which won't do anything new at all.

    Two words: No Thanks

    I do like the old Wolfenstein games, and I do like Bethesda... Sooo I'm hopeful! (Extra hopeful if it comes for Wii U)

    I wish people would stop recycling IPs, I don't want every even slightly new game to be a reboot or reimagining of an existing franchise.

    as enemies they did zombies, mutants, mages, adolfs, doctors and now they did robots, but I still fear only one guy on entire Wolf franchise:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Interesting, though I hope they don't go the way of Tomb Raider and rip all the occult elements from the original story line.

    Sooooo they will put a welfare version on the PS3 and 360 despite the fact that both of their replacements are coming out at Christmas time, yet they won't admit to doing a Wii U version which shits all over the PS3 and 360 for graphics? Sounds pretty derpy to me. The amusing thing is that the graphics engine won't be so advanced that the Wii U won't be able to run it, looks like it will be another grey scale FPS game where they have not botched the whole idea of the franchise in the first place, probably to remain PC to the "don't offend me with Nazi's brah" crowd.

    With robots, it already is and the game hasn't even been released. Wolfenstein was built on killing Nazi's and saving the world, people are just afraid that doing that sort of thing now is not only going to piss off the German's, but it's going to piss off a lot of politically correct people in this world.

    Yeah, I sort of completely doubt that. We still have plenty of games featuring the Nazis as enemies (hell, even the last Wolfenstein had them, and that was just a few years ago), and I'm sure there'll still be human enemies in the mix as well.

    Plus, this is Wolfenstein we're talking about - the franchise that gave us Robo-Hitler. Nazi robots are hardly a radical leap.
