NintendoDpad reports: "More and more good news keeps coming out for The Conduit, this time the good news has to do with the Friend Code system."
I like this, about as good as you can do with Nintendo's limitations.
its not the most amazing news but it still sounds pretty alright im actually looking forward to this game can't wait till i get my wii back from repairs
Nintendo should have given their system some more thought. Their Friencodes were mainly based on "child-protection". But a game rated Teen should not be played by a kid to begin with T_T. This is where the flaw comes in Nintendo >_>. Sounds like Mario karts system, a bit though. "• Ranking / XP system • We already know there will be DLC but there will not be any system updates for this game either" Ranking and XP system, Nice features, but didn't the DS have this website were you could see the best players and stuff for a game like...mario kart DS. Would be nice if we have something like that for the conduit. What DLC? I didn't know this, where was this confirmed.
Speaking of Mario Kart, OMG! I can't even play online without running into cheaters. Infinite stars and blue shells. BOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! Conduit online will probably face the same. They need a cheat detector of some sort.
On Mario Kart DS(one of my fave online games) I've only ever encountered one cheater and we just all dropped out of the game. @V: I knew you were talking about MK Wii but I just thought I'd mention it. He had infintie star power and blue shells, made the game unplayable. EDIT: Funny video and yer what a d*ck.
I'm talking about Mario Kart Wii. Look at this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watc... I ran into someone like this but he never did that against me. He would always be 1st place instead. He'd bomb the living hell out of you if you ever decide to pass him. EDIT: Yeah, the person that did that video was pretty cool about it. Me on the other hand would have been beyond pissed. haha
Brawl worked this way too, I could join a friends game and request his friend FC in that game, the issue was communication; if I was online and a friend was doing a quick Brawl I had no way of letting him/her know I was online until they decided to check their Friend List again or go to the website we communicate through. In that case it’s not the FC that the problem it’s that these online games aren’t on a PC or XBL. Example being the PS3 which for SF4 you can at least bring up the XMB in game, the issue is finding the people you were playing with who aren’t friends, and sending them a message. In the end a chat lobby is usually the best bet… but that died out with Diablo 2. Granted D2 is still going strong.
Why haven't more games done this? It should be mandatory for you to be able to add freinds from your wii system friends. MP 3 had a similar system without true multiplayer connectivity. And now over a year later another game makes this logical decision. Nintendo needs to really set multiplayer standards to streamline the system. I hope there is news on improved multiplayer connectivity from e3 this year. Though that is hoping for alot.
Am i the only one who thinks Nintendo will fix their online sooner then we think? They will make an update to their system the same way they made an update with the storage...it will take time but we will get it eventually. Reggie already praised Microsoft for their XboxLive, you dont think they are working on ways to get it to us?
" They will make an update to their system the same way they made an update with the storage...it will take time but we will get it eventually." Games out now won't be affected as they only contain the libraries of the current system, unless they get patched( O lol that would be a wonder since we are talking about Nintendo) But thats not the case just like M+. It is welcome, i mean sure they should improve on it, but its a shame older games won't be affected. So we should look forward to The Conduit 2? LOL.
The Wii operating system does not run during games. If you don't believe me, youtube a Video called "WiiFail" by Team Twiizer, who hacked the Wii through the infamous twilight hack.
" The Wii operating system does not run during games. " I do not follow, what doesn't run? " "WiiFail" by Team Twiizer" Looking up
Xbox360, PS3, and PC all have OS's running in between the actual game. This explains XMB, Dashboard, and Windows Obviously. The wii actually closes its operating system when a game starts. When you press the home button, this carbon copy code is built into every game, giving the illusion of an OS. Also, when ever you go back to the Wii system menu, the console is essentially rebooting to effectively restart the OS.
Ah, like that. But their current system can be upgraded(their Online infrastructure), new games just have to make us of it. Old games won't benefit from it like i said.
Well Nintendo really needs to listen to the third party developers about the online because they seem to know more about how a good online game works, look at Echoes of Time. It's not perfect but ingame friend requests is an excellent feature for a DS/Wii game and if they integrated it into more games it would go a long way.
This game is going to suck online. Not saying the game itself sucks, the cheaters will ruin the game for everyone. F**k I hate cheaters. These losers ruin games. Socom 2 and 3 for the PS2 was pretty much done when the cheat program (code9/code majik) was made public. Thank god the PS3 isn't hacked. It actually feels good to play online games without having to worry about cheaters. Glitchers and controller modders will always be there but at least its not as bad as cheaters.
Exactly as I predicted actually. Great news.
