Problem with "HD visuals" on other systems is that graphics only take a game so far. After 5 minutes of playing a game, regardless of what system it's on, the visuals take backseat, and the gameplay and controls become the focus of the gamer's attention. If the controls suck, or the game is boring, no amount of quality graphics is going to save it. Companies like High Voltage Software should be praised and propped for attempting to do what so many other companies haven't bothered to: destroy stereotypes by breaking the limits. Up top for The Conduit and The Grinder!
you understand i cant wait for these games to be released and im exited to see who will publish THE GRINDER

I'm guessing that SEGA will publish this, since they already grabbed The Conduit publishing rights from HV. This game looks AMAZING!

I REALLY don't see that one happening... I'd like to see it picked up by EA. EA had no FCs with MoH:H2 because it used their servers and logins. You could even send invites to people you didn't know personally, YAY!

yea EA whould be just as awsome

I just realized EA could also get around the "no-strangers" WiiSpeak problems The Conduit is running into.

Their servers, their rules. I.E.: No FCs, no need for restrictions whatsoever!

I think it has promise. I loved Left 4 Dead to itty bitty bits and pieces, and people that say it has no staying power aren't playing it right.
The thing I dislike most about this one is the name; The Grinder sounds so generic, like every other name that HVS has whipped up. The Conduit? Gladiator A.D.? Michael Ford? Whoever is coming up with this crap needs to stop, it all sounds terrible.

From what I've read so far, this game sounds very boring. I will ignore this game till I see some gameplay.
I'm also getting second doubts about the Conduit, I hope some reviews turn up soon before I lose interest.

So far, two reviews have leaked out for Conduit, both in the 80-range. I think Nintendo Power gave it an 82.

The way I see it is, bring on as many QUALITY games that you can. If that means blood and shooting vampires, then so be it. I'm not against this at all, I just want the darn game to be fun. To me it's not Nintendo losing it's focus on the casual gamer, it's just that they are trying to cater to a much larger crowd now that they know they have the casual gamer in their back pockets. Or actually, I think it's Nintendo in our back pockets.....
I'll play this game if it's fun. I'll just do it when my kids are not around.

I think Nintendo is waiting to whip out the big guns for E3. They have turned their attention to the casual gamer for far too long now, but I have faith that they'll redeem themselves in the not too distant future (i.e. June 2-4). If they were smart, they would nab High Voltage Software as a second party. Like they did with Retro Studios. Even if HVS, under Nintendo, didn't make games like AD and The Grinder, Nintendo could let them have the creative control to push their projects to the limits. Give them a first party character to create a game for, and HVS would seriously blow it out of the water. Why? Because they won't settle for mediocrity - they find out "what works," and go beyond. They blow the standard out of the water and redefine it.

I think Sega should buy High Voltage and release a new console. They're a better fit for each other than HVS and Nintendo. Also, that way we won't see any more of either's games on Wii.
Come on, friends,

I think it's got potential; I also think people need to stop judging games based upon early release footage. Getting the game playing right is usually the first priority, then the devs worry about how pretty the game looks.
I definitely think this kind of game has a place on the Wii; the idea that anyone "serious" about gaming necessarily has multiple systems and will therefore ignore a release of this kind is fallacious; if the Conduit demonstrates to enough people that the Wii has the best controls for FPS it will definitely sell units. Hell I was convinced of that after playing Metroid Prime 3 such that I have no interest in going back to keyboard+mouse controls; using dual thumbsticks was never a possibility.

Sean Aaron, I totally agree with you. Once you get a taste of Wii controls when it comes to FPS, you can never go back.
