New Conduit 2 trailer is packing heat

I get the sense that a lot of people are skeptical about Conduit 2. First, it's a Wii game, which is already enough to upset some people. Second, the original Conduit received a lot of pre-release hype, but failed to live up...

Watch a Conduit 2 trailer if you like

The Conduit 2 is coming to the Wii on February 15 and I'm somewhat looking forward to it. The original game was alright in that really sneery meaning of the word, so I'm eager to see what improvements have been made. The tra...

Impressions of Conduit 2

Things are happening with the Conduit 2. Unfortunately, I can't tell you what I mean by that. All I can tell you is, if you do your homework and play your cards right, you could see something; something big.

Depending on how squeamish you are, you might not be prepared with what you find. Like a kid who's turned over a rock to find a nest of centipedes, I was not fully ready to deal with what I uncovered in Conduit 2. Luckily, I had a gun that shot flesh eating flies with me. I may not have been ready to deal, but those flies sure were.

Read on for my full impressions of the Conduit 2.

Conduit 2 delayed until 2011, getting new control options

Bad news for Wii owners and first-person shooter fans -- High Voltage's sequel Conduit 2 has been pushed out of this year and in to 2011. The game will now see release in the first quarter of next year. The good news is that ...

Review: Tournament of Legends photo
Review: Tournament of Legends
by Jim Sterling

You remember back in the nineties when we had the fighting game boom? Dozens of "me too" titles with increasingly silly premises, all vying for a piece of the one-on-one fighter pie. Rise of the Robots, Primal Rage, Eternal Champions, they all came out of the woodwork with their own absurd concepts and varying degrees of quality. 

Tournament of Legends reminds me of those days. 

Strangely, I don't mean that as a bad thing in the least. Read on for the full review of Tournament of Legends.

E3 10: Preview: Conduit 2
by Dale North

The first Conduit game gave Wii gamers exactly what they were waiting for with a solid, point-to-shoot FPS. High Voltage's game fit the bill nicely, but both the developers and gamers knew that there was so much more that could be done with the franchise and technology.

This upcoming sequel, Conduit 2, seems to  work in many of the possibilities we saw in the first game, and also includes technical upgrades, like the incorporation of Wii Motion Plus capabilities.

Conduit 2 picks up right where the first game left off, story wise. I'm not sure how far our hands-on demo was into the game, but we started off by working our way through a heavily armed ship, blasting anyone that came around a corner all while taking cover behind tables and watching our backs.

While this is the only stage we saw, it did feel a bit more roomy in terms of environments, despite being in a ship. Hallways gave way to wide-open control rooms, and they were manned with well-placed enemies. It was easy to appreciate that they've worked on some smarter level design.

Conduit 2 to support MotionPlus

SEGA shot us over some information about Conduit 2. Specifically, information on whether the first-person shooter would incorporate Wii MotionPlus controls. In the event you were wondering, Conduit 2 will support Wii MotionPl...

The Conduit 2 is called Conduit 2

We've all been calling it The Conduit 2, but apparently we're damn wrong. "The" isn't cool anymore, and anybody who uses it is a big square. From now on, High Voltage's sequel to The Conduit is shedding the formalities and wi...

The Grinder will remain an FPS on Wii

High Voltage's The Grinder is weird. On the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, it will be a top-down action game inspired by Hunter: The Reckoning. On Wii, it will remain the concept it originally started life as -- a co-op FPS inspi...

The Conduit 2 confirmed
by Jim Sterling

High Voltage's not-totally-successful Wii shooter The Conduit is getting sequel, as confirmed by Nintendo Power. While specific gameplay details were not shared, the magazine still managed eight pages of content on the thing, and was able to squeeze a few crucial facts. 

A whole new selection of game modes, including returning modes like Bounty Hunter, are on the cards, alongside a whole new character class system. Classes will feature upgrades such as robotic legs, that allow for faster sprinting. Players will be able to customize their characters quite extensively, adding upgrades to their suits and creating a unique online warrior. Also, four-player splitscreen is confirmed.

As well as competitive multiplayer, a co-op Invasion mode for up to four players has also been announced. Specific details have not been revealed, but it sounds like it will be some kind of "Horde" game type. 

You know what? That actually sounds ... exciting. Yes, The Conduit 2 actually sounds frigging exciting. With Red Steel 2 using MotionPlus to really make an FPS work on the Wii, hopefully High Voltage will be able to take some examples and make a truly console-worthy shooter on the Wii. I hope so. Having a top notch online shooter on the Wii is inconceivable, but kind of awesome.

The Conduit is getting a sequel? Really?

So, a game usually needs to turn a profit in order to warrant a sequel, right guys? Mushroom Men 2 and Dark Void 2 will likely never be created, but we'll definitely be seeing Just Dance 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 in the next f...
