s Randy Pitchford has confirmed the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines will use the controller screen as a Motion Tracker (as seen in the films), among other things.
 
  • Fully playable on the Wii U controller
  • In-controller screen will be used as a motion tracker, allowing you to see enemies and allies when sweeping controller
  • Fully interactive maps / schematic plans
  • Mini-game for hacking open doors

"The Wii U is really bad ass, we have a lot of great ideas that we're already working on."

it would be cool if you had to use the WiiU controller when a face hugger jumps on you to get him off while you shake it and touch frantically. (That last bit came off more sexual than I intended)

Please, let's not encourage any more "franticly shake the controller to _______" gimmicks. I've had enough of that poor substitute for a simple button for the last five years.
