HVS has announced The Grinder with 4 player online co-op multiplayer, MotionPlus support, WiiSpeak likely
Game looks better than Gladiator A.D.
I thought the same thing but i really liked Left 4 Dead on my Xbox360 so i might be able to enjoy this title on my Wii.
Looks like Legendary and Left 4 Dead put together, except....better (maybe better than L4D, but certainly a lot better than Legendary).
These guys have talent or they are just not as lazy as alot of wii devs. Want to see in action.
sounds pretty good the thing i like most about HVS is that they are actually trying unlike some of the other devs
Very true. They really know how to please the core Wii crowd I'll give them that.
The IGN interview is really good, Motionplus, 4 player splitscreen co-op? This is seriously the Wii's Left 4 Dead.
Wiispeak, MotionPlus, 100's of enemies (1000's?), 4 Player online co-op, 2 player splitscreen co-op, controls more customizable, buckets of ass-kicking... I wonder if they'll have online versus modes or if its just co-op, and what about DLC- lots of devs have already said its possible now with System 4.0
Q your right now with system 4 the possibilities are really open now for devs. Remember HVS did state that they do want dlc in games but couldn't do it with the Conduit. Expect map packs or something similar.
ultra64 you took my words out of my mouth, this is gonna be an envied title, now we have more to talk about....but don't forget we have to support HVS and buy these games, these guys are this Nintendo's generation saviors and it might rub-off on the next one.
couldn't have said it better myself.
Very true and why do you not have more bubble? Here is a power up! +bubbles up+ I think the tide is slowly turning. HVS has been building up for this very quietly it seems. Yet they could have picked a better time. The really big developer are swamped trying to get their HD games done. The list of good games are seriously going up companies like namco and konami better get their act together. Namco has the quite bug still but they need to really understand this is the new PS2 or nes. This system is just waiting for new franchises to be made! It is funny though the build up of title will actually help the games that should have sold more because they are simply attracting more people and more types of gamers. The more variety you attract the better your sales are. It is a classic PS situation.
Left 4 Dead Wii? I would have taken a port from Valve. But a different game from the guys who are making The Conduit? Even better.
wow a D-rays fan(yes i said D-rays because i still call them that)
Yep, and I'm still a fan despite watching the bullpen explosion a couple of days ago.
And the game looks booty. Just because you put some characters on the screan doesnt hide the power line wire in the background, the horrible mountain textures, not to mention just the low poly count of the mountain itself. Why not just make a triangle lol. Ill pass because im on an anti shooter spree anyway... I think this would had sold real well around launch but years later this is all you got? WTF did people buy this thing for?
People could end up buying cause it could be fun. You know, fun? The whole purpose of the existence of video games. You want incredible on screen graphics? Watch a Pixar movie. You want an great story? Read a book. You want to have some plain fun? Play a video game.
Fun? On the Wii? You know that fun can be supported by incredible graphics also? Take a game that officially would fit the Wii better as a concept: LittleBigPlanet. Really a Nintendo game if you'd ask me. But it could never be done the way it is done on the PS3, because the Wii would lack the power to do so, thus the fun would also be cut. Processing power isn't only used for incredible graphics. Its also for physics and whatever else technically is great about a game that make it more fun to play. This is the fun you get on the Wii: Wii - 50 games average rated on or above 8 out of 10 PS3 - 100 games average on or above 8 out of 10 360 - 140 games average on or above 8 out of 10 If you call piles of shiatware fun, yes. And this looks allright for the Wii. Overall its worthless as the 360 and PS3 do somemuch better in this genre. I think the Wii should focus on Rayman Raving Rabbits the next part.
Dude, the game is EARLY in developement. You shouldn't expect much. And most of those PS3 and 360 games are probably multiplatform. Stop trying to bash the Wii when you don't even care about it.
Its coming out holiday 2010 so give it some time
this game looks really cool. I don't play on buying the conduit but this i could definitely get into. Hopefully there is some footage at e3.
Awesome, I really appreciate the effort they're putting into the games. yay! They mentioned Hunter: The Reckoning.
the game looks cool theres no need to bash it a day after it's announcement. i can understand the bashing on the conduit because the game looks like shooters that we've already played on the xbox and ps2 (i dont mean graphic wise but as an overall design) but this new game looks like it'll be alot of fun. also, you guys should be careful when you talk about graphics making or breaking a game. The graphics in left 4 dead are terrible for a nexgen game, the source engine is old as f__k and i wouldn't be surprised if this game ends up looking just as good as it.
I could see myself getting a Wii for...finally.
strange... where are the haters?
They'll be here eventually saying about how last gen the game is.
there you go
they went from having Conduit, that wasn't supposed to come out at all. To Sega releasing Conduit, Gladiator AD and the Grinder. HVS is doing what all devs should have been doing from the start, trying to make some serious money off of the Wii. Not really my cup of tea, but hell I'll try it.
let's not rush just yet, capcom ans se are trying. For them to bring major titles like MH & DQ that is big. For up and coming rising stars they have just become #1 with 3 games. I want them to be 2nd party, just have ninty overlook the QC, testers and fund their creativity, well of course pay them hehe.
Since Rare got bought out by Xbox where its talents haven't been utilised in any way...Nintendo may have found a new game-prodege! =D Glad to see it =)
hey n4g wii is killing the hardcore!!!!
that was funny,
"these guys are this Nintendo's generation saviors" "HVS is now the best Wii dev after Nintendo.." "High Voltage = the New RARE" What?? Are you serious!? Are you people aware, I dunno, that HVS are YET TO RELEASE A GAME FOR WII? I know it's easy to get excited by a developer actually trying to make games on Wii, but maybe actually wait for one of the games to be released before proclaiming HVS as gods amogst plebian developers?
Give them kudos for trying, but until there are actual games to be played and tested, then granting the greatness monikor on them is premature. My concern with this title and it's 4 player co-op is how much the Wii friend codes will limit this game.
Is it not the same as the people hyping Demon Souls though? Enchanted Arms and Ninja Blade were both rubbish so it's not exactly their track record. @V: Well there's some people that have played the Conduit and says it's good but they're mostly reviewer types and there not always reliable. But yer, we're all hyping things too much nowadays and then we complain afterwards.
People have actually played Demon's Souls, but I do agree with you. It's more like people hyping Killzone 2 before playing it, just because it's exclusive. Guerilla's track record prior to Killzone 2 has been, well, terrible, but they managed to produce a great game and, maybe, HVS will do the same, but until the game is released, it's hard to make any judgement.
PirateThom we have a retro moment here. I know some of these guys and they are very laid back. I've worked with some people that use to work there also. To put it frankly this is not the type of work I expected from them. They have seriously buckled down and got better at all ranks. I understand funding can be a problem and tech also but they seem to have fixed that. They deserves the hype and praise. Killzone 2 still is not as impressive game play wise and even design wise as it should be but it deserves it's praise and hype. If HVS can pull this off on the Wii then they are very capable of doing it on the PS3 just like GG yet they may have problems with funding because of the price of the PS3 dev SDK and tools. Hey but that is SONY's fault for not making a system more accessible to all developers. HVS should get even more praise for bring their best efforts to a console where you really have to fight to get the most out of it. You have to do the same on the PS3 yet they would be bank rupt right now had they done that it seems. That in it self is a very brave thing and it shows they have BALLS which is lacking at most places. I've played conduit a few times at different dev get together and it is very solid. Also the graphic are actually way better than what I've played. It may not be their best looking game which I believe gladiator will be that game even though I have not seen all of the grinder yet. I had a feeling they had more games in the works and I still feel they have even more. I'm pretty sure they can make a fun game though, conduit is almost from a different company! HVS to me is what the game industry is all about. Little guys with big ideas working to get better. There day and there goal of being one of the best is getting here pretty quickly. I like how they are showing stuff rather bragging about "feature". I wish mnore people would do this.
", but until there are actual games to be played and tested, " Funny as The conduit was already played and liked by many. So who says this is gonna be any different?
so I'll reserve judgment on it until there is a concensus. I've read hands on previews before that spoke glowingly of the small portion that was played only to have the game come out as crap (Haze anyone?). Just b/c this dev team is blowing their own horn about a game on a console starved for decent content does not mean the game will be good.
To the hater Pirate, Actually they do have games out now for Wii. They are on Wii ware. Secondly why is it ok for people who have played PS3 games as reviewers to get people excited about a game but its not ok for Wii owners to be hyped? If I went through your previous posts how many crap games would you be hyping? Yet its wrong for others to do the same? Yeah most of us havent played it but we have seen plenty of hand on previews to know it's probably going to be worth every penny. Oh but since you played it please tell us what was so wrong with it? Since you beat it and all months before it got released.
Yeah, they've already released gyrostarr and high voltage hot rod show on wiiware.
high voltage has my vote ..lets make sure we support them and keep all the softwares wii exclusive
yeah its too late for your comments...it doesnt help your systems sell anymore so go in your corner and cry...wii outsells your systems year in year out...now with the games coming its a done deal...but hey you have to do your part...i know your hurting ..hater.
wow these guys really do put some time into the wii.They don't just say it they really do.Nice HVS
