I've had interest in the game but since then it's waned... I mean, it looks really fun and the graphics and controls seem like it's done well, but since I got other new consoles the Wii's been gathering dust.

If it's really fun I may dust off the Wii and get it eventually, but it'll have to have other selling points than being one of the 1% of Wii games that doesn't look like ass.

I own a 360 and honestly i havent played it in months...the wii's been getting all the attention with Madworld and House of the Dead:Overkill...and now Excitebots coming out..it just adds another game to my wii library.

Im really hoping this game does well tho. If it does...it might get developers to stop treating the wii like a kiddie console and make some decent games for it.

Yeah, I'm really disappointed with the Wii's library. It's like any half-assed team on the planet gets a dev kit and gets the dumbest things published...... like Jenga. Wii Jenga. Sweet Octopus have mercy.

The last game I bought for the Wii was Super Mario Galaxy, which is exquisite. My PS3's been getting all the attention with the newer AAA titles like Resistance 2, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, etc. Though I will often play Wii Sports with friends, it's still my favorite Wii Disc. I sold off most of my Wii library after the motion control gimmick wore too thin on most of them.

Conduit does look like a solid shooter though.

House of the Dead: Overkill is alot of fun..if ya like the lightgun games. I still play that every so often.

Hows Killzone2? I heard the controls are that tight..but they were gonna fix that. whats your thoughts on it?

The controls are "simulation" like, in the sense that there's a sense of heaviness to everything. Unfortunately on top of this there is a noticeable delay in button press recognition, also it is frustrating at first to get used to the feel of the analog stick in the game.. but after you get used to it, it fits the pace of the game well.

Overall, it's a good game, but centered along a slow, methodical pace than just running and gunning. The multiplayer is addictive.

The graphics are definitely gorgeous, very saturated volumetric lighting and particle effects and the characters react realistically. It's also very fun, if you prefer tactical shooters over something like Doom.

another new muliplayer game vid of the conduit.


The game looks great. Cant wait to see how well the Crysis engine will improve graphics for the consoles.

Looks pretty cool. It's using CryEngine? I thought the team made a new engine specifically for the Wii, I remember the tech demos of the renderer.

oh no. I ment the cryengine was redeveloped for the 360 and the PS3. The conduit uses the quantum 3 engine.

Also, new story trailer for the conduit.

I have to say the story looks better then i expected.
