The Conduit

The Conduit – Retro Review

If you have a Wii or Wii U, and you're looking for something cheap to kill about 10 hours with, The Conduit is worth a try. Typically selling used for around $5, it's hard to consider it much of a gamble, anyway. Multiplayer is nonexistent, obviously, so play it for its campaign, then put it on your shelf for the novelty it is: a T-rated FPS on a system mostly used for playing Mario games and virt...

O’RLY? Conduit 2 will be played in “spaces players will want to fight in!”

Released last year on Wii, The Conduit was a generic shooter with great controls. I’ll let you decide if that’s worth your time or not. But that all changes with the Conduit 2, boasts Sega. This time the game will be 100% less generic! When approaching art direction for Conduit 2 we’ve made sure never to build anything into our game that we ourselves aren’t completely excited about...

Don’t believe the hype. I played The Conduit’s multiplayer mode this week at E3 and was underwhelmed to say the least. I don’t remember the single player mode moving this slow, but multiplayer plays as fast as Mario trudging through thick honey. Keep in mind, I cut my teeth on the ultra fast Unreal Tournament, but The Conduit moves noticeably slower than even Halo. It was a major...

Hey Nintendo, remember WiiSpeak?

Hey Nintendo – pictured above is the WiiSpeak peripheral that came with Animal Crossing six months ago.  Can you please release another game that uses it?  Or maybe talk to one of your eager 3rd party developers about it?  Apparently The Conduit will use it, but The Conduit can also apparently grant wishes and emits a delightful floral scent.  So anyway, please, WiiSpeak works great R...

Poll – Shooter shoot out

There are a decent variety of shooters, but I distilled them down to four essential types.  First-person shooters (FPS) like Sega’s upcoming The Conduit, on-rails shooters like House Of The Dead Overkill, Shoot ’em ups (SHMUPS) like Gradius ReBirth, or scrollers like Metal Slug 7. {democracy:79} Vote and then tell us which game is your favorite shooter in comments!

Does the hard-core gamer still matter?

Out of the top 20 selling games of 2008, less than half of them fit the profile of what type of game this MSNBC article considers appealing to the hard-core or serious gamer.  So I think the question shouldn’t be “can the Wii win back the hard-core gamer,” but rather “does the hard-core gamer still matter?” The article goes on to say that Nintendo’s original &#...
