Arfen (on 06 April 2013)

Request: Puppeteer (ps3) PD: you have to remove Aliens colonial marines for WiiU cos it is oficially cancelled


Michael-5 (on 07 April 2013)

I can't remove games because ioi did something which removed Game Database Admin Powers, but I made it release in 1199....so it won't appear in any charts.
