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 to the expecta...

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 trailer doesn't sh...

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 you'll now be a...

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 C...   read

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 cou...   read

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 will henceforth b...

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 inspired by Left 4 D...

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 few years. Sell ...
