The Conduit

Post  Smashy B on Sun May 03, 2009 10:24 pm

I've been looking out for this game for awhile, and I have to ask:
Anyone else psyched at all for this game?

Quick summary, it's a FPS for the Wii developed by High Voltage Software and promises superb controls with the precision you'd find with a keyboard and mouse and quality graphics. Now I played Metroid Prime 3 Corruption and loved the controls and and graphics on it. If High Voltage Software tops that, the Fuck Yeah!

I'm definitely getting this game. Primarily because I've been wanting quality FPS games on the Wii, and Corruption is good, but something outside of Nintendo and less focused on the adventure aspect is what I want. And because I'll be playing something else online that isn't Brawl.

Videos of previews on the game's story, controls, and a couple weapons are available on the link.

I'm certainly interested in this. The Wii doesn't really have any decent online multiplayer First Person Shooters, so this might be exactly what we need.

I've been looking forward to this ever since IGN did their first story on it....forever ago. I'm definately picking this up. Also, the guys in charge seem to know what they're doing.

Well...that Story Trailer got me truly interested. Do not underestimate the power of dramatic trailer music.

So far so good. I like seeing the interest here. See you online, then, maybe.

Edit: IGN got a hands-on multiplayer - http://wii.ign.com/articles/979/979932p1.html

last paragraph wrote:Overall I was having a blast – I'll freely admit that I'm nowhere near as good at first-person shooters as most people, and by the time everyone else was up to speed on the game's controls I was having my ass handed to me on a platter. And going by the reaction in the room it seems that The Conduit is a hit with the FPS fanatics. This is easily one of the Wii's best titles of the year, and definitely a shining moment for hardcore gamers with a Wii in their possession.

I haven't updated my Wii's firmware. If I do that for Wii speak, I lose Homebrew. However, there should be a work-around in progress if it's not already done.

And free Wii Ware/VC/Wii Games. More the former two though, but then again I only have like two due to laziness to get more and studying. But The Conduit will be a game that I'll buy so I can support the 3rd party support on Wii.

Should be in tomorrow afternoon, and when you grab it make sure they give you the special Collector's Edition for reserving it. The calls have been coming in pretty steady at the job for Conduit & all the slew of other games dropping tomorrow. After watching the review, its easy to understand why. Controls look real worked on with the ability to customize every bit of sensitivity, has multiplayer deathmatch, and....TV's Kevin Sorbo. C'mon, its freakin Hercules ;P

The Conduit. I haz it.

More precisely, I have the nice shiny limited edition version with concept art, special ASE texture, and exclusive multiplayer character skin. Preorders ftw.

I'm only about half way through, but so far, pretty good. Level design and objectives are pretty old school, with much of the game so far being composed of various corridors and small room based firefights. So far, the alien weapons are by far the coolest and most useful. (Not including the secret prototype weapons hidden in each level) Controls are, as promised, exceptional, and I love that every button's functionality can be reassigned. Difficulty and AI are kinda schozophrenic, switching from a walk in the park to insta rape.

I'll have more later. Maybe.

Alrighty, I'm on what I can only assume is the last level, and I'm very happy with the game so far. Mission variation stops being an issue, and we get a nice mix of environments. Drudge weapons are still the funnest, but the Trust guns are proving themselves to be admirable competion. Human weapons just kinda suck. Though they have the better grenades. :/

Warp pistols are total bullshit sometimes. Just to let those of you getting The Conduit know. Beware.

Just for you, I went and played a couple rounds of multiplayer. It was hella fun. first match was a 2o min free for all quick match. It took a min to get use to since these are human players and not in game bots. I finished out on top... of the bottom half of the rankins, lol. It was still great. At least my kill score was above my death score (not by much D:). Probably woulda been better to play more single player...

Second match was Hunter mode where you're given a target while at the same time, you're someone elses target. Yeah, that one. I like it a lot, since at times you won't know if your someone elses target, and if you're not, you can kinda run with each other. But that didn't happen much, nor for that long since you'd rather get your man. Took second in that match.

That's it for now. If more of you guys get this, we should exchange FC's.


*segway into single player stuff*
Oh, and as Eiron said, human weapons tend to suck in single player (didn't use them much in multiplayer, save for the pistol, which is decent. But I really like the All Seeing Eye. Finding random encrypted messages scattered throughout the game are fun to find, and a little humorous (kinda like Portal (no cake... yet?)). Controls are top-notch, as said plenty of times before. Enemy AI IS schizophrenic, as Eiron said, but it makes it fun, I think, to have that challenge. Graphics are great and sound and voice overs are great too, if not better. And thanks for the heads up, Eiron.

Awesome.

I like the Human weapons. I had better luck with them by far over the Drudge weapons- but maybe it's just how I play?
