    The Grinder is an online cooperative FPS reminiscent of Left 4 Dead. You can play as four unique hunters that kill monsters such as vampires and werewolves. Expect light RPG elements. Apparently up to four players online with countless enemies on screen at once. Wii motion plus will be used for them having a Japanese assassin as a character. Expect all the bells and whistles from an online experience like Wii speak, leader boards, and achievements. Split screen co-op is an option for those without wi-fi. Expect a holiday 2010 release.

    It seems to me that High Voltage justs looks at what is popular on 360 and makes a Wii version for us. Not complaining though.

    Be sure to check out Gladiator A.D. as well for more High Voltage goodness. And go pre-order the Conduit now!

    Just finished reading about it.. this is 100 times better than the Gladiator thing..

    Sounds pretty much like Left 4 Dead on the Wii.. with swords, werewolves and vampires!

    Also, looks better than The Conduit, only bad part is that we'll have to wait until Holiday 2010 for it.. [​IMG]


    edit:

    Also..

    I don't follow. Why shame on Capcom? You mean shame on Konami for not making a real 3d castlevania on Wii?

    Looks like they've been playing Left 4 Dead then, still another unoriginal title but if it makes a good game I'll be happy.

    Looks and sounds good.

    I think if the Conduit does well there is a high chance of SEGA publishing this game...

    Looks quite good, but it's too similar to Left 4 Dead for my liking :\.

    EDIT:
    Well, I looked through the interview, and they seem to be saying it'll have online achievements, more custom weapons, multiple paths in levels that are randomly affected and a very destructible environment. It may be similar to Left 4 Dead, but I think those features'll make up for it.

    Great to see some new games announced! Especially with the online part, the Wii still needs some more online-gaming fun.
