BuzzFocus caught up with Kerry J. Ganofsky, CEO/Founder of High Voltage, and Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer at High Voltage, to discuss this original release.
I wish there was more out there to keep this game in the limelight.
yeah like i would love for them to speak about those conduit exclusive online game modes which they have constantly been teasing about in video interviews
i dont know if im going to buy it cause i dont play my wii much but ill definitely rent it. Hopefully it sells really well and helps motivate other developers to put more time and effort into their wii games.
This was particularly telling "We looked at the Wii and the decision we made to actually go with the Wii when a lot of other people were considering the 20 million plus projects on the PS3. We looked at the landscape and said how is this product ever going to recoup? How are we going to make money, what’s the risk reward paradigm there? When you look at the Wii, and look at how many units are out there, and you look at the input device you say, “Wow this truly is something special.” And, it’s an underserved market. We made a conscious effort to make a Triple-A project. I think that’s every developers dream. Everything we’ve learned in sixteen years has come to fruition in that project."
"Now that I’ve been playing the Wii so long, when I go back to FPS on other consoles it feels like I’m washing my clothes on rocks. It feels so unintuitive and cumbersome." I just had to nod and say, yup that's exactly how I feel.
the reason you dont play your wii much must be because you dont have any triple A games on it to play so if you get this game you will have a reason to play your wii and if you want this game to be successful and for other developers to see this success and actually make good games then you will support this game and buy it these guys deserve it for all the work they have gone through and effort they have put in to make this game
i own, re:uc, re4, zack and wiki, ssbb, mk:wii, wario land shake it, mario galaxy, animal crossing city folk, gh3, twilight princess, mp3. What the hell else am i supposed to buy? Its not like all i own is wii sports, ive played plenty of games, the wii is just extremely weak imo. I might check out madworld, but i really dont care that much about it cause re5 is coming out around the same time frame. The next game ill probably get will be the silent hill remake or sadness, if that ever comes out.
"i own, re:uc, re4, zack and wiki, ssbb, mk:wii, wario land shake it, mario galaxy, animal crossing city folk, gh3, twilight princess, mp3." NMH, BWii, excite truck, any of the new maddens, I know I hate sports games too but this one is actualy fun... feel like football. The House of the Dead: Overkill Call of Duty: World at War Tenchu: Shadow Assassins Super Paper Mario Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles Mega Man 9 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn Medal of Honor Heroes 2 FIFA Soccer 09 All-Play WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 Call of Duty 3 Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip Trauma Center: New Blood Tatsunoko vs. Capcom import it , it's that good! Get Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy and download the mods... incredible! stuff here, crazy how no one knows about this game! There even more on Wiiware and VC. I'm only posting this list because you seem to be more of a person who rents games rather than buy them.... I'm betting most place like blockbuster does even carry most of this games! I know they do not in my area.
well honestly i dont keep games after ive completed them because they just gather dust so i trade them in for newer games and i played the demo of res5 and didnt like it, everything was triple A but the only problems that ruined the game is the aiming system is so much quicker and better in the wii res4, and in res5 you have to just find the lazer pointer onto their head. the other point is that its more actiony than scary like in res4 there were things in it which actually stopped me from playing the game. i also tend to buy games which you dont tend to complete where you can just free roam for fun like skate it which i love with the balance board, dead rising and call of duty and mario kart for the online ssbb for the bots and multiplayer
well you still didnt answer my question, and RE5 plays fine.
haha soz well its a matter of opinion isnt it like i prefer IR fps rather than dual analog by far nd you may prefer it the other way round it could be the same with resident evil. honestly most of the games that you have came out in 2007 and some in mid 2008 there are actually alot of good 3rd party games already out and games that are coming out which are great like this 1 right here that we need 2 support because honestly its one of the best games ive seen and no not because of the graphics which even though they look great dont appeal to me at all because i dont care about graphics at all when playing resident evil 5 i didnt even think once about how the game looked, but its the accessibility, customisation, story, and just hearing the developer saying they are trying there hardest to make a 16 player online mode lag free sounds amazing to me including the fact that it has wii speak functionality and at least free for all team deathmatch and capture the flag
yea the game looks good but i just bought a shooter so i dont really need another one for the time being. Im definitely gonna check it out though, its looks like itll be fun, and i also prefer the wii for fps, mainly cause of the controls in MP3.
Part of the reason why some great games don't sell as good as they should on Wii is because people have that sort of attitude toward them. "Oh well, it's great, but I'll probably just rent it." I just got Killzone 2 myself, but there's no way I'm going to miss the Conduit. Killzone 2 may have graphics that blow The Conduit out of the water, but it's the other way around with the controls. Are Killzone 2's controls good? Yes. But they are outdated as compared to The Conduit's. Are The Conduit's graphics good? Yes. But they are outdated as compared to Killzone 2. Buying both games gives us a taste of what's to come in the next generation, when one or all of these companies puts it all together. The controls on this game exceed that of even MP3, and if you don't like the initial setting, you can fine tune your controls to an unprecedented extent.
i love how each of these interviews reveal a little more about this game. I'm liking the weapons he mentioned... like a missle so controllable you can fly circles around opponents. Or the exploding bola that can be swung around corners. It sounds like this is going to be a truly unique fps. Personally i'm trading in my COD: waw wii the moment this sucker shows up on the store shelves. FPS games are just more fun to control on wii. This is the title finally exploiting that and I'm gonna support it.
ha, kz2 is the shooter i just bought, i didnt wanna say it though cause i figured people would get on me for trolling. Im gonna rent the conduit first because im still on the fence with it, i know its gonna be quality but i don't need another shooter thats just gonna sit in my desk. If the story is really good itll probably garner a purchase from me, cause im not into mp all that much anyways.
