In this second excerpt of the interview with The Conduit's Lead Game Designer Rob Nicholls, we delve into the reason for lack of Split Screen multiplayer on the game, even though many gamers wanted to have it.
Who cares... it has online. I was playing Red Steel splitscreen a couple days ago and wow did it suck. I mean, its Red Steel but still, wii splitscreen feels a little wierd.
why would you care, the only friends you have are on N4G.
What the hell? You are a giant douche. Did you even read my comment? I played splitscreen with 3 of my friends two days ago. Loser.
I bet the online on this is going to busier than Emptyzone 2
It looks like Master Chief getting nice and ready for you to give him a B.J.
The Wii can BARELY render The Conduit, in SD, at 30 fps in SINGLE player....there's NO WAY it could render it TWICE, with separate inputs.
There is a way, each half of the screen renders the game with PS1 graphics. Just Joking :D. It is like KZ2, probably the devels needed more time to squeeze the required power from the machine.
The PS3 can BARELY render Killzone 2, in HD, at 30 fps in SINGLE player....there's NO WAY it could render it TWICE, with separate inputs. See that statement I just made is utter BS cos i don't know if its true and I am not going to act like I Know it to be true. The same applies to you, you know nothing about wii development and therefore cannot make a valid statement but you still get agrees because you bashed the wii. Isn't it nice when people promote stupidity and bias?
That IS correct...thanks for supporting my statement. The PS3 couldn't pull off 1080p, OR 60fps with KZ2...so splitscreen WOULD be a problem. :)
@ BeNice True, Now before I am bashed, HAZE has split-screen mode, and when it is in split-screen it makes me want to scratch my eyes out with a knife. It is fuzzy and runs at like 20 fps. EXACTLY, If KZ2 can't render it, what makes you want to expect The Conduit can in all of it's Quantam3 glory. And this is better, because splitscreen, when not done correctly, can suck.
Master Chief more like the green ranger yeah it blow job time.
As opposed to split screen singleplayer?
what a terrible interview. One response and the first stupid thing the author writes after it is, "Well there you have it folks. The Wii just couldn't handle it." In this logic the ps3 can't handle it either in it's "best looking title". It's looking like a great game and it's sad that biased d-bags are already doing their damndest to try and put it down. I want to see if the "Journalist" who wrote this garbage even got more then one question out to begin with before the guy from high voltage realized he was talking to an idiot. Guess we'll never know.
go figure the fanboy morons would have to drag in sony into this one. just be happy that high voltage is giving you what looks like to be a really great 3rd party fps.
isnt to show that the ps3 or the wii cant do splitscreen on graphic extensive games, but rather the fact that the wii's graphical peak still isnt as good as our ps3/360 graphically substandard games that actually do have splitscreen such as halo 3, cod, resistance, etc. all those games look better and features splitscreen. sorry, but the conduit's strong points arent its graphics; its all going to boil down to its uniqueness and how good the gameplay is. atleast its a good looking game for the wii.
How can you claim that this is the fps everybody has been waiting for on the wii, and then reveal it has no split screen multiplayer mode. Would i be correct to assume that means no offline multiplayer mode? (with human players.) That in my estimation lowers the games appeal, as i have no access to the net. (i'm using my phone as a modem: dial up.) We had this debate yesterday about the games artwork, and how the artwork is 'oldskool,' they don't even offer a split screen multi player mode (oldskool), further evidence that this game is turning out to be a mess. I think this game should be called Identity Crisis.
in order for them to make the game look as good as it does, with all of these "Next gen" effects, they couldn't find a way to do split screen without losing too much quality in the time that they had.
nobody expects the same level of graphical detail in split screen. everybody who has ever played a split screen game will know it comes at a cost of something, even if it is sound. it's just an excuse for being lazy and not giving us what we want/expect.
that one of their mandates was to have the best looking Wii game to date. So while it could of course be pulled off, if it was to be too ugly they passed.
I'm as upset about this as the next guy but you have to give them credit their main motto or rule was if anything felt added on, half assed or just wasn't great! then it wouldn't be in the game and reducing the quality in split screen doesn't satisfy them seeing as they are perfectionists who believe if it isn't amazing then its not going to be in the game
Every great split screen multiplayer game i have played has had its quality reduced- goldeneye, mario kart, halo etc. It would be unreasonable to expect no loss of graphical quality in split screen for any system, so i think it is a shame they have completely left the feature out. I doubt it would have been terrible or unbearable to look at or play. If they are bragging about the engine being able to produce '360 level graphics' then surely split screen would be a doodle for the engine? I smell something that is not right. Maybe they have simply ran out of time.
Its a great game with the best visual and online on Wii to date. Go get a better internet ya cheap bastard! The game is incredible and I manly play my PS3. If you want split-screen then dont buy this. Go get MOH Vanguard or Red Steel. Online is a better option to have thean Split-screen. Most would rather have online instead of Spllit-screen rather than Split-screen over online.
