New concept art for a rumored Conduit sequel have been leaked.
Concept art looks really good!
I think it might be photoshopped stuff to be honest. No way they'd have a set release date when it's that far off. Of course it could be when the game is set? but yes does look like nice art. I'd also like to be able to suggest some improvements for HVS as the first game was flawed, but I enjoyed it.
Personally I've been to that forum where these are from and about 5-10 HVS members including Eric Nofsinger post regularly. I have to also agree. The Conduit was good when thinking about controls, but had level design and Ai problems.
Well that's pretty interesting then. Yes, level design was my main issue but probably my biggest complaint is about the actual Conduits, they're an important device but at the times when there's several it just gets ridiculious. Endless respawning enemies aren't fun. Also the storytelling could be better, the conversations are boring but just something as simple as having cutscenes would spice it up a bit, even if it was just Ford killing drudge whilst having the conversations or showing him travelling from one mission to the next(if they're not consecutive).
Yea, the story I thought was actually almost the best part. I thought they did a good job with the radios describing events as they unfolded, but yea the enemy respawns were laughable. HVS did a good job their first time out of the gates. We will see what the sequel has for us though as this will be where the fruits of HVS labor better be shown.
Yer the storytelling during the actual levels was quite good really but in between missions where it went to the vanilla text box was truly terrible.
Wow! I havn't visited the site in sometime and I come in and Megaman 10 announced which I thought was great, now this? Concept art looks really well done. Hopefully HVS have learned that art design is a big deal in games and should push for that in the sequel. Sorry, I liked The Conduit, but the game was bland looking. Their Wii tech is spot on, they just need to up the design of things.
I dont think there will be a sequel. The first flopped in sales, and if that wasnt enough, it wasnt received well by critics.
Well according to Sega it did exactly how they wanted it to so I think they're happy with the sales(it sold 270K of it's 300K shipment) and I think HVS are happy with the sales too, otherwise they would have cancelled Gladiator AD and The Grinder, no? Critical reaction won't affect chances of a sequel, look at Killzone and Red Steel.
The difference is that Killzone and Red Steel sold well, The Conduit didnt. And what do you think Sega would say? "It didnt reach our expectations, it did terrible in fact." And no, HVS wouldnt cancel Gladiator or The Grinder, reason being that they've invested too much to just stop development, they dont even have a choice actually.
Umm, Sega would just say it didn't meet expectations and then leave it at that just like many publishers have said about underperforming games... instead they said it met expectations, which means... it met expectations. Hmm, how have they invested too much? games get cancelled all the time, they could easily just cancel them and go back to making licensed crap. They likely didn't spend that much anyway, The engine was already made and it wasn't particularily high budget. Anyway I'd take Sega's word over yours. Especially considering that you hate the Wii anyway.
The third one is a photoshoped version of the Army's Future Force Warrior concept soldier. The forth picture is Agent Smith from the Matrix cuebald and fitted with a gas mask.
The first game was a mediocre FPS with a terrible story and laggy multiplayer. It didn't sell well, it wasn't even finished (just look at the ending), it didn't get very good reviews and HVS is a mediocre dev in general. Why does this game deserve a sequel? I hate Sega so much... >.>
THIS IS CONFIRMED AS FAKE. Just look at this: http://web-nerds.net/DOWNLO...
I couldn't imagine this one being any better.
Brace yourself for the Wii haters. But before anyone bashes this, keep in mind that High Voltage is a very small dev team. The Conduit was their FIRST original project and it was on a pretty small budget. Also, it was only in development for a little over a year. Keeping all of those things in mind, the first game wasn't bad at all. It was a good first attempt from a small dev. Did it live up to the hype? No. I'm just saying that it did good for what it is.
The last 3 pictures look pretty lame, but the first two are BADASS! But the 3rd and 4th pictures are obviously fake. The first two and the last one look legit though.
I know the person who made these.... they are fake, fan made...
would like to see a sequel. Those guys at hvs left an awful lot of room for improvement. Multiplayer especially. Shame it's fake :( though it is almost assured it will be made eventually... otherwise conduit had the most annoying ending of all time.
To put it nicely, the conduit is truly one of the worst games i've ever played.
Bother to explain?
The constant repeating of the same rooms to walk through. (reminded me of a flintstones cartoon) The "state of the art graphics engine" looked worse than 90% of gamecube games. The gauntlet style spawn points (whoever thought that this was a good idea needs to be fired) The enemy/character design. (so bland and uninspired) The game is downright horrible. IGN can rave all they want about the controls but if a game is a chore to play does it really matter how flawless the controls are?
Funny. Could you tell me which level looks the same so much even, that it reminds you of "the flintstones"? You "played" the game right? This shouldn't be a problem. It's art? You must be kidding. 7_7 In that case, all PS1 and N64 games are one level next to sh**. Graphics shouldn't be a pro or con for any VIDEOGAME. Bland Enemys/characters? Hmmm, you didn't really play the game..... Did you..? Skimmer? Med-mites? Tear-Mites? Therm-Mites? Para-Mites? Scarabs? Storm-Scarabs? Invaders? ETC? Bland? Buuulllll.. >.< The game is downright horrible? Your opinion. *sigh* You know controls are the game's gameplay, right? Sorry you don't like games with good gameplay, but that's what games are. It's just been that way since day one in gaming. 7_7 But hey, I hear there are some good movies out there. <.< >.>
hey genius, not everyone enjoys the same things in life. You like the conduit...awesome. I personally, do not. I love how you take the stance of, "oh since he's saying what all the reviews said he most not of played it..." The majority of the levels all repeat themselves, the underground bunkers, the airport, the library, etc. I don't like the conduit, the game is horrible. I am not alone in feeling this way. The game is a joke, it's "good for a wii game." If this game was on the pc/360/ps3/ps2/gamecube it would have been destroyed and launghed at by everyone, but since the wii gamers are desperate for anything, crap games like 'the conduit' get a free pass. I spent money on it and therefore i can and will say whatever i want about it. Grow up. Here's my wii library. Notice the one spelled "T-H-E C-O-N-D-U-I-T" ??
i'd also like to add that this sentence right here makes absolutely no sense. "You know controls are the game's gameplay, right? Sorry you don't like games with good gameplay, but that's what games are. It's just been that way since day one in gaming. 7_7" Controls are the games gameplay? What alternate universe are you living in. I swear, wii fanboys come up with the most nonsensical arguments in order to bash people for saying something bad about the wii. Plus, if motion controls are so awesome then i guess according to your logic the n64, gamecube, snes & nes all must be irrelevant now because they didn't have motion controls.... Look at my games, i support the majority of the "core" games that release on the wii. The only one i didn't want to purchase was 'No More Heroes' and that was because i didn't want to give ubisoft my money because they pulled a 1-2 on gamers with 'red steel.' A game that's WORSE, lol, than the conduit. "But hey, I hear there are some good movies out there. <.< >.>" Is that a slight jab at the ps3? Yes i enjoy the ps3, and i also enjoy blu-ray movies. Let me ask you something, just because these games (in the attached photo) are on the ps3, does that make them not worth playing? There has to be a few games in there that you wouldn't mind playing. See how that works? I don't hate the wii, i bash it alot on this site and i do think it's one of the worst systems ever made but there are games for it that i enjoy and other games that i'm excited to be released. I also enjoy playing on the ps3 and that system too isn't without its own faults. What's so wrong with that?
Oh..... How good of you to call me a "genius".. 7_7 Really now. Errrrr, no sh** sherlock. Not everyone likes/enjoys the same things, there was points in your post needing correcting. I didn't say that, nor did I imply it. Don't put words in my mouth. [Bunker] No, just no man. That's like saying a room the shape of a square is the same as a room the shape of a circle just bcause the boxes and wall design are the same, even though enemies attack in different formations and in different numbers. [Airport] Ok, ok, ok..... I'll explain this one better. Room 1) Number of enemies: 7 Enemy type: Trust-Agents Weapon type: MP5KA4 Sub-Machine Gun Grenade type: Fragmentation, Flash. Room Design: Clear (mostly), Some things in this room can be used for cover from enemy fire, no uper levels which enemies can shoot from. Room 2) Number of enemies: 4 Enemy type: Trust-Agents Weapon type: MP5KA4 Sub-Machine Gun Grenade type: Fragmentation, no flash (as far as I have seen) Room Design: Clear, nothing to use for cover but the room's walls, no uper levels, room looks like one fourth of a circle. Room 3) Number of enemies: 13-14 Enemy type: Trust-Agents, Puppet-Humans. Weapon type: MP5KA4 Sub-Machine Gun, Scar Assault Rifle. Grenade type: Fragmentation Room Deign: Much like the first room but is much bigger, has an ammo box, has two uper levels with one enemy on each one, has more spots in which you can take cover. Room 4) Number of enemies: 7 Enemy type: Trust-Agent, Puppet-Human. Weapon type: MP5KA4 Sub-Machine Gun, Scar Assault Rifle. Grenade type: Fragmentation Room Design: Much bigger the room 2, more things in the room that you can use for cover, more enemies, room looks like a half of a circle and not one fourth of a circle (like room 2). Room 5) Number of enemies: 10 Enemy type: Trust-Agent, Puppet-Human. Weapon type: MP5KA4 Sub-Machine Gun, Scar Assault Rifle. Grenade type: Fragmentation Room Deign: Has only one uper level which an enemy can shoot from, bigger then room 1 but smaller then room 3, more enemies are not seen before they come. Room 6) Numer of enemies: 2 Enemy type: Trust-Agent Weapon type: MP5KA4 Sub-Machine Gun Grenade type: Fragmentation Room Deign: Looks like room 2 but is much smaller, only one thing in this room can be used for cover. Room 7) Number of enemies: 9 Enemy type: Trust-Agent, Puppet-Human. Weapon type: MP5KA4 Sub-Machine, Scar Assault Rifle. Grenade type: Fragmentation Room Design: Unlike the rooms before this one this room has a escalator that take you down-stairs, enemies attack from up-stairs when you kill the ones down-stairs, room has ammo box. Room 8) Number of enemies: 10 Enemy type: Trust-Agent, Puppet-Human, Trust-Scientist. Weapon type: MP5KA4 Sub-machine Gun, Scar Assault Rifle, Deatomizer MK4. Grenade type: Fragmentation (didn't see any flash grenades, but I think it might be there) Room Design: Like the last room this room has an escalator that goes down-stairs, escalator is smaller then the last one, room leads you to a train, before you get down-stairs you are shot at by two snipers. [Library] This level only repeats it's rooms two times. Any more? So...... It matter if you have an opinion that others have???? It's good for a Wii game? Who said that? I know I didn't 7_7 If this game was on the last gen consoles people wouldn't be b!tching about it. Because a game with good online and gameplay would have be liked by gamers of last gen and gens before then, now it's all about "GRAPHIC THAT LOOK MORE REAL THEN THE HAIRS ON MY @$$!", "GAME MUST HAVE ONLINE", etc.... The game is crap? I do hope you KNOW this is just your opinion, right? And who is giving this game a "free pass"? I only think the game is fair, not good not bad, fair. YOU are being silly (like you do on most Wii articles you post on), acting like this game is the greatist piece of sh!t since ET (the game). Ohhhhhhh, it's the "I HAVE IT, SO I CAN SAY WHATEVER I WANT AND IT'LL BE VALID!", good times. Grow up? You can't make it through the day without Wii/Nintendo bashing. So no, you grow up. Hmmmmmmm, I didn't say "OH YOU DON'T HAVE THE F**KING GAME!", it was as a question. Go back and read it, I'm not making this up. /: ------------------------- Part 2 ------------------------- Yes controls are a part of gameplay. Still don't get it? I'll explain. The "A" button is usd to jump, jumping is a part of gameplay. The "B" button is used to shoot (LMFAO, I can't I have to even continue), shooting IS gameplay in a FPS. How freakin hard is that to understand? S:o Wii fanboy? HMMMMMMMMMM!? I'm no got [email protected] fanboy, WTF logic ARE you using? If you didn't know yourself, I'm telling you now. You are NOT saying anything against Nintendo, this is about the coduit. But hey, you bashed Nintendo sooooooo many time, how are you to know? Right? What does you buying "core" Wii games have to do with <_< >_> ANYTHING!? 7_7 *sigh* You read TOOOO much 360 fanboy posts. No Hat, I wasn't taking a jab that the PS3. Because unlike 97% of this site's members, I'm not a fanboyish piece of s***. You should have known that sooner. You see here is the thing about that (Now before I move on, just remember. This is my opinion and in no way am I calling this fact). I believe ALL GAMES should be played and beaten before ANYONE can say it's a good or bad game, I might not (in a long time) get the money for a PS3 or XBox360. In other words.... YOU TELL ME. I really REALLY don't know who's posts you are reading, but it clearly isn't my posts. I never said (and you can look at my past posts if you don't beieve me) sh** against ANY console, just it's fanboys. The Wii is my kind of console because I'm an arcade gamer, and the Wii has the old-school/arcade games I can't find on the PS3 or 360. You know, SNK games, arcade like rail shooters, but does that mean I don't like the PS3 and 360? H*ll no! Anyone who likes telling people thier favorite console is crap, sh!t, has no games, all RROD, waggle box... ISN'T A GAMER..... imo... 7_7
