Game Review: Conduit 2 (Wii)

5 September 2011 8:56 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Sega and High Voltage Software have taken another shot at the Nintendo Wii market with Conduit 2. Is this sequel worth the buy and does it improve on its predecessor? Conduit 2 picks up where the first one left off as you (Michael Ford) chasing after the antagonist John Adams. The story is pretty cliché and is pretty easy to follow. Bad guy wants to get stronger, you have to stop him. Aside from the straight forward story, there are some nice cut scenes that set the tones for your environments and encounters. However, the simplicity of the plot lines isn’t a big kill for the game because it lets the game fly on the action. There is literally a fight behind practically every door and turn. Conduit 2 also sports a pretty nice voice acting cast. Michael Ford is now voiced by Jon St. John (Duke Nukem Forever, World Of Warcraft »

What Makes a Game Indie? "Rochard" Blurs the Line

4 March 2011 11:19 AM, PST | | See recent IFC news »

In 2008, the new European developer Recoil Games was creating an ambitious first-person shooter called "Earth No More." The team was large and the product was larger. In 2009, the financial crisis struck, and the project was postponed indefinitely. Yesterday, we met with a smaller, but equally hopeful Recoil team to discuss their new game, "Rochard," a downloadable exclusive for PlayStation Network. What happens when a major studio tightens the belt like this? Can a once traditional developer be indie?

"Rochard" is a tough title to define. Like "Metroid" and "Shadow Complex," the titular hero (voiced by Jon St. John, the throat of Duke Nukem) navigates a 2D plane, blasting enemies, solving puzzles and exploring a sci-fi world.

The pot-bellied, mustachioed engineer has two unique methods for manipulating gravity -- the crux of the game. The first, the G-Lifter, is Rochard's go-to weapon and puzzle solver. With a click, the gun lifts a nearby crate with ease. »
