The makers of "The Conduit" believe that a viable hardcore Wii market exists. And even though they claim it's "a gamer's game," they think their first-person shooter will hook the casual crowd, too.
Of course, but with Nintendo leading the hardcore charge in 2007 with Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, etc. and 2008 showing that the Wii is not slowing down, it takes brave developers like HVS to continue the charge, that and Sega wanting to make the Wii the hardcore console they know it can be (since they are publishing The Conduit, Madworld, a hopefully better Sonic game than unleashed, and House of the Dead). Fortunately they weren't the first developers to realize this which is why we're getting plenty of exclusive titles such as Tenchu, Fatal Frame, Monster Hunter, etc.
It should because the controls seem really easy, pointing to shoot, one analog to move, flick nunchuk to reload, A button to change weapons.
I mean pointing to aim.
I don't like the nunchuk to reload control. Here is my controls: Up on D-pad: Zoom In Left and right on d-pad: Switch weapons Down on D-pad: Crouch A Button: Jump, Sprint, Collect weapons B Button: Fire (duh) Plus: Reload Minus: WiiSpeak (multiplayer) 1 Button: ASE Device 2 Button: Flashlight?? (Free Space) C Button: Change grenade types?? Z Button: Reload Flick nunchuk: grenade
The online will be a huge factor.The Wii needs The Conduit to be successful so that other 3rd party developers pay attention.
MK does a good job, but we need a faster way to put in codes. Like emailing codes straight into other people's save files, so we don't have to add it in if we already have their wii code. Once is enough :P
I hope friend codes won't be necessary.
“Initially, we think it was because publishers and developers didn’t really consider the Wii to be a ‘next-gen’ platform." And that some how means Wii isnt next gen at all.... Fanboys and their ignorance...Topic should be deleted and reposted with the correct responses not what the fanboy posting it wants to lead others into thinking was said.
The Wii isn't next gen for real. It has the same kind of processors as the gamecube, just on steroïds. The only thing added is the Wiimote, and in 99% of all games its implemented like 4 weeks old poo.
LMAO... You send me a message claiming to own a Wii and then you prove yet again you know nothing about it.... Wii is twice as powerful as GC was. Also it has BLuetooth, Wifi and free online. things the GC never had. But you would have to really own one to know that. Not just claim you bought one a few days ago and played and beat every single game worth owning in that time and now only use it for a hack that was taken out months ago.. How big of a moron can someone be to spend 250.00 on a Wii to play nes games when they are free all over the net? Clearly you are young and stupid and just dont have the ability to think this out properly. Its so easy to find out info on the Wii that you have to be an extremely big retard to be getting so many things wrong about it.
initially A would be better to zoom in or look down the sight of your gun but it could be used as to change gun if thats what the gamer prefers and i agree with everything else you said there should be alot more fps' like this it just makes sence with the wii remote
Well looking down the sight wasn't an option for the first fps games anyways. I'm talking about controls for Casual Gamers. The game seems very easy with the controls I made up. I think that I'd be able to use more buttons myself.
Another great wii game. To bad it is not on the ps3.
You have a bunch :) have fun with KZ2.
this game wouldnt even be the same had it been on the ps3.
what are you talking about?!? sure its a good game but i would trade this for resistance 2 any day! 60 online multiplayer! MASSIVE! but i do preffer the point and shoot other than dual analog sticks.
This and Madworld are the games I look foward in 09 for Wii
the one move i really hope is in the game is the ability to dodge left or right.A fast sidestep would benefit online play so much.I mean not just strafe but really a sidejump if you will.
and maybe if you could lean left and right like you can in pc call of duty games so you can lean out of a corner and if someone sees ur head they can either take your head off with a sniper of use skill with the shrieker :P
they don't release much video of it.. well i haven't seen much. that can't be a good thing. i'm skeptical, definitely not excited.
are you serious? Your a wii owner and your not excited about this?
Im with product, what do you mean no video of it!? they have about 4 trailers and already have the full first level on video.
how can i be serious when all they show me is a few short snippets of video. They have a lot of talk, a lot of huge claims. i don't know if i can believe the hype. every company thinks their game is amazing, if its so amazing then show it off.
here go to ign.com and look up all the videos of this game.They do show it off videos include entire first level gameplay(in alpha form),different weapons,tech videos showing field of depth,motion blur, heat distortion and water reflection(features rumored to not be capable on the wii).There is literally well over a dozen videos.
thanks for that, i didn't see those videos before
