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.
Shadow of Rome confirmed for the Wii XD (Tho SoR was actually quite a good game >_>)
so far looks really cool! i hope its kinda like a first person but then behind them a little bit more and you are able to control the sword/swords/weapons with 1:1 motion that would be cool! especialy with Mtion +, multiplayer and maybe online, thats just all too cool and so far everything about it seems cool! i just hope its the type of gameplay im thinking of, like a 3d platform and able to walk around and slice and dodge and roll, just as long as it isnt a sidescroller or anything like that, or an RPG i will be fine :)
Looks awesome. Hope to see some gameplay at E3. And I really hope SEGA publishes it.
Are you kidding me? give the game a chance and stop bashing it so hard. its early in development to god they should just close this off to non fanboy/trollers
PS2 was the least powerful system of the last gen. That's a fact... game cube was more powerful then the PS2. Now there is dejavu this gen as good games are finally being made for wii despite it being underpowered compared to the competition. It's gonna happen and the whiney kids with the system in last place hate that crap. That crap called reality namely.
agree completely there anyways the haters are just looking for something to hate on they could fix all the problems the wii has to offer yet they would still hate on it which is kinda sad reminds me of when GT posted up a video of spore galactic adventures and said it was spore heroes so many haters came in basing the game even though it was the pc version and not the wii version
Yes, the gamecube is more powerful than the ps2 and the Wii is more powerful than the gamecube, I don't know why we have to read things like that: "Don't insult the PS2 with these shoddy graphics. Take a good look at MGS3. That is not possible on Wii." Fanboy is disgusting -_-', why we can't be friends and play videgoame without this stupid war? -_-
... I would have to say that I think that it's possible that not too many PS3 owners are going to complain about not getting this game on their PS3: there's already a game that I think will capture the "olden days" style of fighting on it's multiplayer. They both seem like great games: but when I compare these screenshots http://www.nintendoeverythi... to these screenshots http://www.vandal.net/foro/... I think PS3 owners will be okay if that one slips by because it seems to be a similar game in terms of genre (combat) not so much the era (greek vs rome) Maybe not, but I guess we'll see.
We can't compare both games, God Of War 3 is a different genre, but of course, GoW 3 will be a great game.
Some one better fix the lighting in GOD are lots of gamer will be pi$$ed. Yes it's moody but seriously you need more light in that game. I think this GOD may not be as good as the other though because Jaff is gone, I hope I'm wrong but certain things are already being over looked. Even this Wii game has parts that are pretty damn impressive already with less power under the hood. Of course it's not going to push as many polys but that game is also not going to have motion+ ouch, this game will. Hey but they could also redo the geometry and reprojected the detail on the a new model. GOD I love z brush!
Looks good for a Wii title, I'm amazed!
Now this guys deserve an applause for not giving up on the Wii and for being talented at what they do, screens look awesome. now I see what that Ign screen came from...LOL
And for you guys ready to bash the game, and strip/compare it to God of War 3, If this game is good and really can pull 100s/1000s of models in a scene, which I don't think has been done on the Ps3 as of yet, then I think the Wii is going to be okay too. LOL...argh..arm... Kratos has a manly look and such beautiful blue eyes, maybe that's why he wares make-up... I kid... I kid....GOW3 is button-mashing Carpal Tunnel cool...
not counting the dragons, beasts, and dinos.
AMAZING graphics not just 4 wii but amazing graphics full stop did u read HVS interview a couple hundred to thousands of on screen enemies at 1 time with adjustable AI wow i havnt seen this on PS3/360 wow wii more hardcore than ps3/360 ha ha ha
they can pull it off 1000's of on screen enemies at 1 given time if HVS say they can they can they havnt lied to us yet so no reason to think that cant be done and if so the wii can do high end pc games sorry but not heard of any 360/ps3 game doing this in this style graphics wow the wii is much much more powerfull than we think last thing deadrising wow am i glad i wasnt fooled into buying that rubbish CAPCOM HVS ARE BETTER ON WII THAN U 360/PS3 lovers oh i dont want RE5 unless its better than PS3/360 version OR MAYBE TRY SOMETHING ORIGINAL
" Has Wii MotionPlus support" All that i needed to know =) XD. Nice engine HVS have been cooking up.
if they add reggie for k.o maybe i might buy it.
u dont remember a game like this on the ps2 stop faking this game could only be mistaken for a 360 game its way too amazing looking to even compare to a ps2 game a pc game 360 game ps2 game not a chance only 7 months into development aswell come on it would take 3-4 years to so a game like this on ps3 the wii rules
i remember a gladiator game like this on the ps2, i watched my friend play it a few times. Can't remember the name though.
not even a chance u could think this looked like a ps2 game not a chance go and play your crapbox stop watching wii games if u dont like them flippin heck man chill and let wii gamers enjoy ther AAA games stop bashing wii games go and play ur ps3/360 and be done with oh the graphics are amazing on this game and a ton of other games aswell id say 360 gamers watch out but im not bothered about all that why watch out try 1000's of AI enemies on screen at once in them graphics wow is all i can say really oh 1 more thing 360/ps3 have not achieved this level of next-gen gameplay in terms of 1000,s of AI enemies on screen at once not even GOD OF WAR see ya wouldnt want to be ya
It looks like Shadow of Rome for PS2 a gladiator themed game. Not remotely like God of War, but it was for PS2.
What's this...a spiritual sequel to Shadow of Rome?
extreme violence and blood don't make me chuckle... i will wait until further details arise... but it could be good, let's wait...
Now im happy the more fighters the better. And the graphics look really nice, but RE Darkside Chronicles is the best looking Wii game, imho. Another hardcore style game that typical fad gamers will pass by because it not on PS3/360.
All of you are fools. Why do you hate on Wii games THAT ACTUALLY HAVE EFFORT PUT INTO THEM!? It makes no sense. You guys won't flame Petz or Babiez, but you'll flame The Conduit and this? It's retarded. Just stop. Let Wii owners enjoy the new qulaitly games they are getting. And to compare this to a PS2 game is simply rediculous. I've obviously bounds beyond PS2, and even [original] Xbox. I thought this was a 360 title when I saw the screenshot.
High voltage is really doing everything they can possible on the Wii. If they keep this up we might see graphics that look like Gears 2 in 3 years. Why arn't there good graphics like conduit and this game on the Wii? Its because the Wii doesn't have this built graphics an dother stuff to produce graphics so the devs have to do that them selves. So the hardware in the Wii can do near same quality of graphics as cod4 or Gears. Just develepers are either too lazy or dont know how to do this kind of stuff on the Wii or dont take there time in trying to learn it. I can understand because why try to put COD4 graphics on a console that you have to configure differanlty than on the other consoles. Take a look at this
sorry, i'm too [email protected] spoiled
This is why i hate posting on anything about high voltage or the conduit.This is a new game that hasn't even been worked trow yet and the fanboys are already crying.N4PS3 give it a rest already christ...I own a ps3 and i don't act like this and i know it's the ps3 guys.The lack of good ps3 news brings them to anything wii.
Wow! I'm very impressed with these shots. And only 7 months into development? Finally a 3rd party Wii game that is really pushing for good looks, and it DOES look good! Of course these shots were never going to matchup with top range ps3 or 360 games, so I don't know why guys are talking about that earlier up in the thread. (EDIT: Although it DOES look as good as some low end ps3/360 games. Vampire rain and Conan spring to mind. I swear this actually looks better than them, and there's still plenty of time for the game to get polished). I don't own a Wii myself but I will seriously consider getting one if I see more 3rd party publishers putting this kind of effort into their' games.
But the Wii's looking pretty nice =D...i'm impressed! Finally a company that focuses on the presentation and content, and not on the sales! Maybe Wii has a hope!! E3 will reveal all!
HELL YEAH!!!!!!!! let,s hope
