High Voltage announces 2 new games for Wii

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009 by Zach Potts

High Voltage Software, developers of the highly anticipated Conduit for the Wii, have announced this week that they are working on another two titles for the platform; Gladiator AD and The Grinder.

Gladiator AD will feature fighter-like mechanics and 1 verse 1 fighting, where you can brutally dismember opponents with your sword, or other implements of death. The game will happily support Wii Motion Plus.

The Grinder is another game they are working on, set to be out holiday 2010, and features Left 4 Dead like material. You get to play as one of four characters and battle your way through hordes of vampires, werewolves, and other such beings. You’ll have a myriad of guns at your disposal, and possibly a sword for some gruesome action. The team is working hard on the title, and the game will include online co-op, with up to four people in all likelihood, as well as Wii Speak support.

You can look forward to some hands-on impressions with this title at E3. They are definitely titles I’ll be looking for.

Congrats to Microsoft!

Yes, congratulations are indeed in order. For what you may ask? For being the first console I’ve ever owned to go bottoms-up on me. As of 11:19pm Pacific my Xbox 360 Elite, allegedly more stable in its hardware than previous models, opted to take a steamer on itself. When I powered the unit up today to check out Flock from Capcom the unit hissed loudly then locked the screen, leaving it pixelated. Upon a reboot I was greeted by the famed and dreaded 3 Red Rings of Death. The unit is listed as “out of standard warranty” despite the extension provided a while back retro-actively by Microsoft. This unit would have turned two years old on the 29th of this month.

Supposedly, the 3 RRoD is still covered as per Microsoft’s own warranty page (though all links to the extension announced a while back have mysteriously disappeared). Honestly, this is no shock to me. In the years I’ve worked in the IT industry Microsoft has crapped out on me more than any other companies combined. In other news, my launch Wii and Playstation 3 60GB models are still running fine. Thankfully, we have a debug 360 handy here as well. Of course, that doesn’t diminish my disappointment in Microsoft yet again. I’ll talk to them on Monday and give them a stern tongue-lashing and we’ll see what they have to say.
