Conduit 2 Confirmed at GDC?

High Voltage Software is well known for their Wii game, "The Conduit," Although receiving mixed reviews and having mediocre sales, the game's developer, High Voltage Software , and the game publisher, SEGA, have repeatedly said that they have been happy with the game performance. But has the game performed well enough for a sequel? Well there have been multiple claims the a poster advertising the games sequel was at the HVS booth during GDC.

"...[B]ut what caught my eye was that in the demo room there was a poster on the back wall. And on the poster, in a Conduit-esque font, was a giant 2. No date, no title, just the 2."

The story is too old to be commented.

Conduit is on my list of Third Party Games to get for Wii. I just haven't heard much off of people about how good it is, I'm not a HUGE fan of reviews and I much prefer getting info about games through word of mouth.

AEtherbane2832d ago

At least rent it. You cant really trust ANY review of the game since the range is from 20% to 95%, with such a huge differential in the reviews, you cant really trust any of them.

I haven't played The Conduit yet, but you can now pick it up cheaply at many places. Target is great for deals, because they really try to push old software (3 months is old to Target) out with newly released games.

whats with the shouting?

AEtherbane2831d ago

You forgot to put the caps lock button on. I didnt know you were shouting.

Seekerofthewind2831d ago

All Caps is bad. Separate your post into paragraphs if it's going to be longer than a few lines. Otherwise, it turns into a tl;dr scenario.

The game is preety good and last i heard the game was about 700th which is preety good for a new ip on a consul that has trouble selling games to the core gamer.I still think its the best looking wii game to date and the story isn't to bad if you look for it in the game.

matey2832d ago (Edited 2832d ago )

yes but the wii allows u to do crazy polygon counts like if the conduit was a fps/3rd person shooter next time around in 3rd person the polygon count could be 20000 polygons thats twice that of RE4 on cube and is what we should be asking for at the least on games in the future cars in car games have the potential to do as many as 250,000 if devs want to bet they wont invest that money into wii games when really the wii can do all this its easier to just say the wii cant do it and get all us off there backs i say lets speak up and tell HVS CAPCOM ect to pull there heads out of there *** and get pushing there polygons that we know the wii can do i mean even MH3 could have doubled the poly count on the characters but hey that game still looks amazing none the less but what i dont understand is the wii is cheaper than ps1 development and it can push graphics in terms of polygon count textures ect so thats cheap to develop for and u can get high poly counts with full texture support and then u have 75 million wii out there and devs dont feel the need to put out gta4,saints row,god father 2,ect its a joke and it also doesnt make sense 3 versions of a game all looking fairly simular is the best way to go surely i mean CAPCOM have recently ported the MT Framework engine over to wii and said they have event size games on the way for wii based on main franchises so devs are realising the benifits this would have capcom are making devil kings 3 for wii on MT Framework and porting it to ps3 to save on money and is going to be a trend for capcom from now on so expect to see quality u are not used to on wii this year from capcom

I hope the second game manages to pull me in more than the first game did, because sadly, the first game never impressed me too much with it's level design, story, gameplay & multiplayer. Which is sad because I was a HUGE supporter of the game before it was released. And I'm hoping they don't turn it into a topdown shooter like they did with the HD versions of The Grinder.

the conduit succeeded in 2 things,
it showed some impressive tech,
and it established how controls should be done on the wii,
if they can build on what they have(and fix the whole artistic problem, and online) then they've earned my money.
