High Voltage Software has unveiled a brand new first-person shooter for Wii called The Conduit and is aiming to make the best looking game on Wii.
"Most of the games on the Wii look like crap. We want to change that, so we've invested heavily in our Wii tech over the past year," said CEO Kerry Ganofsky in an interview with IGN.
The upcoming Wii game The Conduit takes place in the present day, where Washington finds itself at the
The Conduit’s plot may be wrapped in Roswellian mythology and alien intrigue, but it’s no conspiracy that this summer’s most anticipated FPS is available only on Wii.
