The Conduit Blasting Its Way onto Wii June 23rd
Normally, I try not to mention “gone gold” info but since we’ve been back up and running I don’t think we’ve given much coverage to the Wii for reasons other than to moan and gripe about the weird E3 presentation but I wanted to take a chance to mention that while its my least played game console it does have titles for gamers outside the preschool and septuagenarian sects.
The Conduit, a first person shooter title developed by High Voltage studios and published by SEGA, is one of the more “core gamer” (we aren’t calling ourselves “hardcore” any longer I guess) oriented titles for Nintendo’s bizzare stress relieving, heartbeat sensing exercise console. The story surrounds Secret Service Agent Michael Ford, a member of a shadow cabinet organization called The Trust which is tasked with defending America from threats even more foreign and extraterrestrial.
Again, we get to see someone take a shot at making the Wii a console for an FPS. With the
additionlack of the Wii Motion Plus it looks like the dreams planted in all Wii owners by the dynamic and far oversold Metroid Wii teasers back at the console’s launch could actually come to fruition. The Conduit looks pretty good for a Wii title and if it controls well the Earth vs. secret insect invader story could be a lot of fun as a break between running in place and flapping our arms up and down playing a Nintendo mini-game.
The Conduit is scheduled to hit stores in the US around June 23rd. just for fun I’ve embedded some videos for your viewing pleasure below.
