Animales de la Muerte esta muerto para WiiWare?

I'm posting this for two reasons. For one, I totally forgot about Animals de la Muerte. Seeing this post over on GoNintendo reminded me of its existence, and I'm happy for that. Secondly, I think it's worth noting the sad trend for announce...

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...

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 y...

Review: Tournament of Legends

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 ...

E3 10: Preview: Conduit 2

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 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...

Tournament of Legends gets new vid, cheap price and delay

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...

Preview: Astro Boy

Osamu Tezuka's classic title Astro Boy is an important piece of animation history -- many cite it as the birth of the modern anime, with its debut on TV in 1963 (the manga started in 1952). And now, the character is getting a 3-D film from ...

E3 09: Gaming orgy of the damned caught on camera

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...

Important question: how does a lightsaber actually work? Do you need to use the force to make pretty light come out of the hilt, or any chump can press a button on the hilt and go vroom vroom?
