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 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 ...

High Voltage teases a big announcement soon

The guys at High Voltage have been a bit silent since E3 and the launch of The Conduit. After announcing The Grinder and Gladiator A.D. I'm sure they're hard at work actually developing those games, but it seems they've got some news coming...

E3 09: High Voltage interview part two: Gladiator A.D.

Where The Conduit is exciting because it promises to be the first fully featured online FPS on the Wii, and The Grinder looks promising for it's co-op and horror/comedy combo, Gladiator A.D.'s claim to fame is being damn strange. It's both ...

E3 09: High Voltage interview part one: The Grinder

Jesus Christ, The Grinder looks awesome.I'm not a big fan of the FPS genre, but when a game brings this much to the table, it doesn't matter what genre it's in. The Grinder combines the knowingly over-the-top horror/comedy of House of the D...
