    Its hard to be excited for this when the best game I've played of theirs was High Voltage Hot Rod Show...and that was just ok.

    Apart from ports, there isn't anything of any worth. I was interested in Animales de la Muerte but it looks like that'll be a retail game and I dont see it being worthy of that. Also, while I think it'll be a good game I don't think The Conduit will be anything to be worth remembering in the future.

    I hope to be proven wrong.

    Mm, fair point, but they're a developer who's excited to try and please the hardcore fanbase on Wii, and a lot has to be said for just that. And if they get enough revenue off The Conduit (which seems likely with all the hype) they'll be able to do much bigger stuff.
    I agree that The Conduit looks slightly less fantastic than everyone makes it out to be, but hopefully the puzzle mechanic(s) and story will make it a game to remember.

    Yeah, I'd rather we had more developers that may at least try then those who play it safe and makes clone games of whatever is selling well.

    Hmm, surprise game from High Voltage?
    I'm hoping for a flight sim style game using that nice graphics engine they have.
    Maybe a nice futuristic racer.

    I'm still hyped for the Condiut.
    I'm confident it'll be at least a decent game with good graphics.
    Besides if the graphics are over hyped and the game is actually good, then it'll just be a good game that happens to look good too.
    For me, I'm expecting things to move around so I can shoot them.
    It'll look good and be atleast a decent shooter with online play.
    I think I'll be happy paying fifty bucks for it.
    Just hope that all the footage we've seen didn't just show the only three levels in the game.
    Would suck if it ended up just being a short game without much to really look at it.

    Anyway, more using the engine the Conduit uses should be great.
