The first screenshots regarding High Voltage's new Wii title have been released.
those shots look amazing :O
ZzZzZzZz .... -_-
It would really be cool if you could brutally kill people online??? *then looks at MadWorld and sighs* Great Game!!
Wait a minute... could this possibly be another rendition of Gladius? That TBS game that was on the PS2? It looks like it really could be. Anyways, I know if this is shown at E3 Nintendo fans will claim the graphics are on par with GoW3 regardless so yeah... P/S oh wait, I remember. There was a game like this last gen. Where you played as a gladiator. I think it was in the fight genre, I'll go look for it.
Why'd they have to make this a fighting game? This could have been a great action/adventure title.
yeah i just wish it was more of an action game.
It's a over the shoulder fighting game with some different takes on gladiator fighting 300 comes to mind and gladiator will you get to go up against the emperor? ...Hmmmmm... Online being played with, complete light maps with very very nice set that have pretty dynamic lighting. The control system has motion+ confirmed and it's fully customizable. Unique controls for every fighter? They have more environmental effects, seriously these guys are getting better with each month. WOW this is on the Wii also. Also if you don't like some thing say what it is other wise you are part of the problem. If you are part of the problem then you surely don't want the Wii to do good. Full use of Z brush also check out that model they have at the end, that is some HD level modeling for that normal map there. Also I think they should pull the camera back and use more mip map level and fade in a higher normal map when you get that close. UT3 engine uses this a lot. Yet it's a lot more controllable if you don't have full 3d. Over all these guys are seriously impressing me with how far they are going on this system. The art team and dev team are coming into their own. As a gamer this is going to be one interesting game. I'm sure they are having fun over at the studio now. I'm curious to see what they do with motion+ though.
its seems logical because when they first introduce to the engine the first show medieval stuff and all that
High-Voltage set to deliver again? Well I'll be sure to keep my wallet ready for that and make some room on the shelf for their game.
Great for people that love those kinds of games. This one doesn't really interest me though.
Looks like Uncharted 2 already got beat in the graphics department!!!
funniest thing I've read all day. nice.
Not quite and this is only 7 months into development, with full light maps and some ambitious lighting scheme to go. Seriously motion+ is going to add even more to this game. Really impressive work coming from their team though. If they would have had this type of funding during the GC days they would be the next retro or factor 5. It seems they are taking all of the hate really well, keep it up it's making them into a force in the industry. They really do remind me of epic yet they make more than FPS which is very cool.
What is this game about?!? I mean the graphics look mad sweet and the detail is wonderful but is it a fighting title? adventure? is it a god of war clone or is it a unique concept. These screens make me ask more questions then i get answers. @smacktard can you tell what kind of game it is? because i have no clue thus far.. are you just against roman games or is it graphicly nice games?
"Gladiator A.D. takes strategic combat mechanics and steps it up a notch with an RPG-light twist and more player options. Players take their gladiator into one of history's most brutal blood sports; the Roman Gladiatorial Circuit. After winning enough favor from the crowd, players can challenge the champions for fame, wealth, and in some cases, freedom stand waiting to the victor. " "Players have the option of playing as one of many gladiators, ranging from the Dark Druids of Amesbury, to the daughter of an Egyptian priest. Special achievements will unlock new gladiators, such as the current arena champion and even the emperor himself. Each character has an intricate story, abilities, and motivations to encourage playing through the game with all the different gladiators. " "Gladiator A.D. is not a traditional 3D fighting game. It's more of a hybrid between 3D Fighting games like Bushido Blade and Boxing games like Fight Night. The action is intense, but the combat is strategic. You need to learn your opponent's weaknesses and think through your attack patterns to succeed. There is no button-mashing here. " Full interview on IGN.com. I'll have to wait and see how The Conduit turns out before I decide to get it but so far it seems interesting.
PS2 FTW! I can't belive developers are still making games for the PS2. Oh wait its a Wii game...
Don't insult the PS2 with these shoddy graphics. Take a good look at MGS3. That is not possible on Wii.
Okai then mister developer, present evidence.
you must be kidding,if not you are a moron :S
Its still a working title tard!
Are you guys for real? Looks about as good as the original God of War to me.
Remember that they are talking Wiianese....
Lol. They don't agree, Whoooop. I was speaking from a strictly graphical point of view. As it stands right now this can't even stand up to the better looking wii titles like Punch-Out, let alone games on the other consoles . Whatever. You guys go right on ahead pretending that looks nice. I'm sure they'll clean it up a little with time.
Most of us are not so inbred as to compare a just announced game with little details to a full retail game. Maybe you just dont have a clue how gaming works but games that just got started do not have top of the line graphics. Who really compares pre-alpha games still early in development to released games? Nobody really. At least not any one with any understanding of the gaming industry.
It's 7 months into development LOL and it already is doing way more than conduit. Check out all of the screens shots. This one is the best by far. http://wii.ign.com/dor/obje... Check out the detail in the arena and the opponent standing. Also polygon wise and the close up is not a good idea. I think they may be maxing out the Wii's polygon count maybe, if so they really do not want to be showing any cylinders pointing into the camera, every one knows normal maps work best when viewed straight on. At least for the screen shots. That's a minor grip though. Seriously I never even expected this much detail on the Wii normal map wise with so many other effects present. The conduit 2 is going to be a looker. http://wii.ign.com/dor/obje... Now this shot along is very scary because this is the Wii we are talking about here. Also the polygon limit doesn't show up as much because of the shot. Also look at the anatomy they are able to pull off on the Wii. Very impressive stuff. The instancing was already know and why chop till you drop did not use it is beyond me. Really cool stuff and they need to choose there screen shots a little better also. The structure in the main shot would actually look better with the vines not on the top. Then they would need a really sweet sky map with some lighting effects. Also I hope they have an event in the rain! HVS is smart to not leak the controls out because I know I am like every one else waiting to see what others are doing! I know that the fans would love to at least know how it plays. Unfortunately I didn't hear them say any thing about it being at E3.
@Guywhothinksit'scooltoinsultp eopleonline: That's fine. As I said, I'm sure they'll clean it up with time, but what's with all these "ZOMG!!! That looks amazing!" comments? The plain fact is, it doesn't look very good right now. So really, who's jumping the gun here?
enter the haters
yeah i know right wow i laugh at it yet at the same time im all O_o lol
Seriously I think this is a rear time when they are actually helping a developer push them selves. So far we are getting some pretty sweet fighters. TvsC, this, Smash, punch out, and they are their own type of games also. I like the fact they are not making a traditional fighter if they pull this off correctly I could see them making a better brawler and bring back the double dragon days.
For some reason I can't seem to find games that I like for my wii other than tennis/boxing! I don't know why but every time I see a wii game I just go blahh. I'm actually looking forward to the Indiana Jones game.
Apparently I did find more games for my WII and I'm not looking forward to Indiana Jones. You silly droids always malfunctioning.
Wow, the only Wii games you like are tennis, and you're looking forward to the Indy game? Hate to break it to you, but you have terrible taste in video games. I prescribe cyanide.
Sorry BX81, but im gonna have to agree with Smacktard on that, lol.
