Way back when, High Voltage Software confirmed that The Conduit would be shipping in March 2009. According to a GameStop listing though, the game will be out in May instead...
no damnit,wtf am really looking for this game,it looks fantastic,if this true,then wii will rest in peace for 6 months and how the hell am going to play it after going through killzone 2 multiple times?
Well yeah that got me thinking. I remember when I didn't had my 360 for a week (sent for repairs) and i switched to playing God of War 2 and I was like God I can't play this now:( (God of War 2 is my favorite game of all time. I have finished it 11 times.:D) That is one reason I don't have a Wii. Once you go HD, you can't go back:P
yes same happened to me,I went back playing san andreas on ps2,cause it's one of my favorite games ever but sh!t,the graphics are so outdated don't get me wrong,I know that games like sa and gow 2 are legendary and better than most games today,the skull is rock hard solid but they need a graphical improvment If games like gow 2 or san andreas released with full HD glory,it will be better than 90% games released today gow 2 is an amazing game man,maybe one of the best games ever
God, ape, you're such a graphics whore. Why can't gamers nowadays appreciate games for their gameplay? And why do people that think they're "hardcore" gamers only play FPSes? We got some great titles coming out for the Wii between that time. ToS2, Little King's Story, Deadly Creatures, Demon Blade: Muramasa, and possibly MadWorld.
oh my god super mario galaxy is actually one the best games I played this gen we still haven't PLAYED killzone 2 or the conduit yet to know which one will have better gameplay,level design,pacing gameplay is still unknown???? but when I just saw the latest kz2 gameplay,I can truly say it's a big step up in terms of graphics and what's going on on the screen conduit is the only game that hunger me on wii,you know why? cause it have a delicious mix 1-awesome wii controls 2-awesome graphics am afraid the mix will breake up after playing kz2,but still I have to see the gameplay
"Why can't gamers nowadays appreciate games for their gameplay? " look at gears 2,it have awesome gameplay and graphics and matter of FACT that graphics elevate the already amazing gameplay to a new hight,not possible to achieve without nextgen tech even if the same team developed it example:can you imagine gears 2 on wii? my god wii's tech will ruin it,dead rising is a shining example of how can bad graphics and tech can ruin the game yes gameplay is the most important factor,gameplay is the reasone why we play games but gameplay and graphics will produce better gameplay,let me do an equation for you amazing graphics+awesome gameplay=more concetrated and better gaming experience than gameplay with so-so graphics examples:uncharted,cod4,mgs4, R2,gears2,saints row 2,imagine god of war 3,I don't want you to think that am an average gamer,who just look for graphics look at banjo:N&b,it may have sharper graphics than smg but lol it's NOTHING compared to smg,it's a sh!tty game,the first banjo on n64 was MILES better
That's fair, I can see where you're coming from. And I agree some games just can't be done without today's tech. But then there's games like Super Mario 3, Link to the Past, Link's Awakening, Ristar... they just can't be done in 3-D. And of course... when was the last good 3-D Sonic game? Some might argue never. Unleashed might have potential to be good, but it won't hold a candle to the old games. Anyways, I'd like to talk about this more, but my time's being cut short. I think I got my opinion across too, heh.
That's the thing Ape, You should take the Wii as it is and just appreciate the gameplay since we won't see Killzone gfx on it anyway. Just to be ticked off by gfx is nonsense. The conduit might be hyped due the GFX but i think its one of the best looking Wii games(minus the art direction), but we all know we will buy it for the controls not gfx. We should put the Wii,360 and ps3 in the same "spectrum" if we were to call it game consoles, but don't compare GFX, rather compare if the games are fun to play. Since Metroid I can't go back to analog sticks.
the problem with graphics is that they make the gameplay better. better animations = smoother gameplay, HD res = easier for the eye, better textures and effect = better atmosphere = easier immersion.to prove my point right, play DMC4 and DMC3 and you'll gonna understand what i mean. but there are other games that i can play without epic graphics like Zelda OOT, Mario 64, Crash Bandicoot (ps1) because their gameplay is so basic that even if they had amazing graphics it would be the same thing. other types of games that don't need amazing graphics to enjoy them are the 2D like street fighter II or MegaManX games, besides these, most Jrpg's don't need amazing graphics either. and again play games like Heavenly Sword, DMC4, Ninja Gaiden and then try to play GOD or DMC3 man it's gonna be a pain in the ***, and don't even try the first DMC where you can't even move the freaking camera for the most part of the game. but the The Conduit looks solid and with the wii-mote that seems like it was made specifically to play FPS i don't think that's going to be a drag. it look more like fun!
" the problem with graphics is that they make the gameplay better" False, If the gameplay sucks at the core then gfx won't do sh/t. " play DMC4 and DMC3 and you'll gonna understand what i mean." I did, and seriously, i was not impressed nor did it feel any different. The game played almost exactly the same. DMC4 didn't change anything. "and then try to play GOD or DMC3 man it's gonna be a pain in the ***, " To you yes, to me no.( and don't even try making that @ss joke on me xD) The thing is you should take things as they currently are. I have a Ps3 and a Wii and planning on getting a 360, but seriously i have no trouble going back because i look at the core of the game: is it fun to play? if the answer is yes i seriously couldn't give a f*ck about gfx. I know GFX can play a huge roll with games, but this is a FPS game and the only major thing that has been improved over the years are GFX. It's nice to see change in how you play a FPS. I don't care for GFX with this one anyway, to me they are nothing but a bonus
"the problem with graphics is that they make the gameplay better. better animations = smoother gameplay, HD res = easier for the eye, better textures and effect = better atmosphere = easier immersion.to prove my point right, play DMC4 and DMC3 and you'll gonna understand what i mean." Are you serious? Of all the games released this generation, you picked Devil May Cry 4? That's probably one of the worst (if not the very worst) examples you could possibly use, as any and all of its graphical improvements over DMC3 are rendered moot because DMC4 suffers from some of the worst game design in recent memory. Glitchy, camera's *still* terrible, nerfed difficulty, and 60% of the game consists of running around with whinging Dante Jr. (er, "Nero") and then the other 40% of running back through those exact same levels with Dante and fighting the same bosses over and over again. Pretty or not, it's completely awful and I had to plug my PS2 back in and play DMC3 just to get the terrible taste out. If that's what games this generation of consoles are supposed to be like, then we should never have left the last generation.
Well this is one game that may persuade me to buy a Wii.:P
Well, it looks good, but I can't justify buying a console for the 4 or 5 games I'd actually get for it. I'd love to get a chance to play the game someday, though.
For another gritty shooter with aliens? No thanks. I may already have a Wii, but this one will need damn good scores for me to buy it. Gears of War 2 is good, and I'm sure Resistance 2 is just as good, but I just can't seem to play both. They just seem to be the same game.
So cheese, You don't have an opinion on your own? Only a review score can make you buy something? And how many "alien" FPS does Wii have? Wii is lacking in the FPS department
I don't have a large enough budget to go buy every single good game that comes out. If it doesn't stand out, I'm not buying it. Why should it matter if the Wii doesn't have enough FPSs? I have all 3 now (Just got a PS3); I don't care what platform the game is on. If it's good, and unique, I'll buy it - regardless of whether it's PS3 360 or Wii.
this game has Half Life 2 graphics...whats the big deal.
Well, Half-Life 2 still looks good, even today.
Sorry bud but I was wayy to distracted to read your comment LOL. You might wanna change your avatar if you want these guys to take you seriously. But great pic tho.....
What do you not understand about the fact that THE GAME IS NOT DONE! IT'S STILL IN IT'S PRE-F**KIN ALPHA! God people. Stop saying the graphics about a game that's not done. That's just so stupid. And I say screw the graphics because the gameplay mechanics are something never seen before, and they can't be done on any other system. Not even the PC. I mean, of course the graphics look great and I can't wait to see this game but I think it's safe to say we're buyin this game for the gameplay and online (that has WiiSpeak.) And WiiMotion plus will make this game have to best aiming precision in the history of FPSs.
*pulls up hand* Gampeplay
I'll take aiming with a mouse over a remote any day. Aiming a remote at a TV is nothing like aiming a gun. Also, I don't think WiiMotion Plus is going to do a darn thing for the aiming. The aiming is about pointing at the screen, not waggling the remote.
What are you talking about? Aiming with a remote is closer than a gun than a mouse is. I'm sorry, but you statement made no sense at all. And nobody even ever said that the WiiMote is the perfect simulator for a gun. We've said it's the most precise aiming around. And while you may prefer a mouse, you still gotta admit that the WiiMote is more precise. And like you said, WiiMotion Plus only helps when you do motions with it.......my point exactly. To point at the screen, YOU MOVE THE WII MOTE, which over-all, ENDS UP MOVING THE POINTER.
Shoko. nobody talks about the gameplay in this, everybody mentions the fantastic graphics and I fail to see whats so great about them. Im no graphics whore but when people are hyping something and I dont see a reason for it I will point it out, thats all. Im sure it plays great, im in no way saying the game is going to suck.
@Champ, So you say that you will take mouse over the remote because pointing at your tv is nothing close to the real thing? Damn i wish i was there when cowboys used to fight each other by moving their awesome shotguns and magnums over a mousepad. Motion plus is not going to change the IR functionality, the IR is precise as it gets. However for throwing grenades Motion plus = a + And motion plus takes away the "waggling" because real moving precision is taken into count. Anyway you sound like a real troll with your opening line, good job. @Deee, The reason it is being hyped is simple, People claimed that the Wii can't do anything decent. That the games are ugly and play really bad. Now there is a game with both decent looking gfx and (what could be) awesome controls and yet people sh/t on it. The gfx are a plus but everyone is getting it for the Controls anyway. Shoko is basically "pissed" at the fact that people bash something just by the looks of it.
Ah well slightly good if true being that MH3 is supposed to come out in February? If so that gives me plenty enough time to rack up some money as well as play through Tri~ ^_^
I hope this is true, because that means they'll have more time to polish the game. Maybe they could add in some modes even.
FUNNY HOW ANY PIECE OF NEWS DERAILS FANBOYS... back to the point if they pushed back 2 months means we're getting a better game and they're incorporating Wii-motion plus, not a bad thing.
The best FPS games of the 2009 will be : -The Conduit -kill Zone 2 -Doom4 -Bioshock 2 Actually for the first half of the next year I am waiting more anxiously for The Conduit then I am for the KZ2 game(and I got a Ps3 as well). I belive that comparing single player mode The Conduit might be more interesting to me then KZ2 since such game that is too beautifull normally have a really small single player campaign. Multiplayer mode is always cool to have on such FPS games but the single player mode or coo op mode on the campaing is 90% of the game to me. I guess that is why I did not like Socom for the PS3.....
That's a pretty lame list, really. :\ I used to love FPSes, but now no modern FPSes can really grab my attention. The Conduit could be great, but it's unproven. You can't say it's going to be one of the best FPSes of 2009 without playing it or its prequel. Killzone 1 was supposed to be amazing, and turned out to be mediocre as hell. Will this one be different? We won't know until we play it, anyways. Doom 3 was a joke. Why'll Doom 4 be any better? And... have you seen any gameplay of Doom 4, or heard ANYTHING about it? Bioshock 2... well, I'll give you that. Most people seemed to enjoy it. It didn't grab my attention when I tried to play it, though. The atmosphere, however, was AMAZING.
It is safe to say a game will be at least good if it get's great hands-on. In every hands-on out there I've yet to see one negative thing said about the game. Not saying that you should get all hyped up becuase of it, but you could at least rest assure that the game will be enjoyable. Yo can also tell the game will be good due to the determination of the devs behind it. they're very serious and dedicated to this game. Killzone 2 is very different from the last one. It's probably the only game out there that uses the true power of the PS3. Have you seen Killzone footage? It's absolutely crazy. There's so much stuff going on, the enemy's react to where you shoot them, the blood is realistic, and of course that graphics are absolutely insane. I'm not saying that it's 100% sure gonna be great, but I'm just saying it's totally different form the last one.
@ reatrd...I mean Smacktard. Sorry about that. I have played the Conduit before guess what I was at PAX. I own PS3 and am a COD fan but the Conduit seems like a game that I would be interested in till the sequel come out. Now COD is a great game so is CODWAW which i also own for PS3 I was having way more fun playing the Conduit. And the graphics DO LOOK LIKE XBOX360 maybe not to you guys cuz you only saw the compressed internet vids even in High Res but I saw them on a TV and the game LOOKS NOTHING like 480p. Oh and for the record conduit has the potential to be THE FPS of 2009 because of the controls. They are perfect(espeically after they are twaeked.) AND CODWAW is more fun on the wii then the PS3 cuz after you use wiimote ANALOG STICKS AND MOUSE JUST SUCK FOR AN FPS. Also people say that the mouse is the most precise. Well guess what the conduit's controls just topped it. I use an optical mouse for Crysis PC but the Conduit just feels wayyy better. AND THE MOUSE ONLY SATYS IN MIDDLE OF SCREEN. the biggest lack of freedom between the consoles, PC against the Wii. WIi offeres much more freedom for an FPS than consoles and mouse as long as it is in the hands of the right developer.
May??? Great! (That's a sarcastic great - so all the little kids that use this site understand me. I'm not happy about that.) Originally, wasn't it supposed to be out this year? Then it was pushed back to March ... and now May?! I suppose this is because you can't run a beta on a Wii. They'll have to get the game perfect before they ship. It's not like they can patch it after.
It is a RUMOR. It can still come out in March
