High Voltage Software’s New Games!!

If you don’t already know the name High Voltage Software, you should. They are the studio bringing The Conduit to the Wii. You know, the game that is poised to be one of the best First-Person Shooters ever? Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. Well, it seems that High Voltage has quite the crush on the Wii. They’ve announced not one, but two new games for the beloved system!

The latest announcement (we’re going in reverse chronology today) is for The Grinder. It’s a 4 player online supported co-op shooter. The game is set in a world with Vampires, Werewolves and other monsters of the sort. You will choose from 4 different characters which include a Japanese assassin and a bounty hunter. The team has been called in to eliminate the monsters and figure out what made them in the first place. Some of the details that High Voltage have talked about was the fact that WMP may be supported if the assassin had a sword, that WiiSpeak should definitely be available, and that they are beefing up the Quantam 3 Engine to look and run even smoother than it will in The Conduit. The team at High Voltage is shooting for a holiday 2010 release for The Grinder. I don’t know about you but I am drooling and dying to see the demo of this at E3 next week.

I think every male between the ages 15 and 50 would agree that 300 was an amazing movie. It had everything you’d want in a film: gore, violence, action, girls, violence, and more violence. High Voltage definitely falls in the group mentioned above as they are making a game inspired by the film. Gladiator A.D. is a fighting game set in the bloody arenas of Rome. They’ve said the game is a hyrbid of Bushido Blade and Fight Night. I’m sold. Add in the fact that WiiMotion Plus looks to be supported in this title and I may have to buy it twice! We know that there will be two-player local gameplay, and that the team is working to get the game online. Gladiator A.D. looks to be a brutally violent, and very beautiful game for the Wii. Hopefully we’ll be seeing this game in full sometime in Q1 of 2010, but we’re sure to see plenty more next week. High Voltage Software has definitely laid the gauntlet down and looks to claim the Wii as their platform. I’m okay with that!
