Clan Wars Listing invitation

WiiHD is a huge fan of online gaming, but not just any online gaming. Core gaming in genres like racing, fighting, and shooters. So now we want to do our part to help the core Clan community on Wii make themselves known and increase their membership. We will begin listing notable clans that actively engage in clan wars in games like Medal of Honor: Heroes 2. We will however keep the gates, so not just any clan listing will be accepted. Rules for who will be listed and who will be forthcoming.

To apply to be listed, fill out the questionnaire after the break. Questionnaires will only be accepted from the official clan leader.



Why Civilization Revolution Isn't Coming to the Wii


WiiHD is a huge fan of Civilization and Sid Meier's in general. So when we heard about Civilization Revolution, a consoles only reimagining of his long-lived Civilization franchise, we were excited about the possibilities. Briefly, it appeared that the Wii would receive an in-house port of Civ Rev, albeit several months after the PS3, 360, and DS versions. After a couple of months of letting us think that, Firaxis/2K made the decision to cancel forever shelf development of the Wii version indefinately.

Because of the vastly different requirements for the 360/PS3 platforms and the Wii platform, development for Wii had to be from the ground up, whereas PS3 development could share the 360's assets. With manpower and resources limited, the Wii really was the most logical choice to be cut. WiiHD hates that this is true, but sadly it is. They would have us hold out hope that if the game does well, a Wii version might still be developed, so consider purchasing it on the DS or 360. Hit us after the break for quotes and links.



New Medal of Honor Heroes 2 Video Gallery

WiiHD is now unveiling a gallery of user created videos from Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 (MoHH2), currently the best FPS on Wii, and the only one with online multiplayer. We'll be doing this for a number of similar games as they come out. If you want your video included, go to mohh2.fortunz.com, and follow instructions for submission there.

Later, we'll update the page to include featured videos and reorganize it.



Behold, The Conduit

High Voltage, WiiHD's new favorite developer has introduced it's newest property, The Conduit. A Scifi FPS with political intrigue, unique gameplay elements, promised online play, and never-before-tried-on-Wii graphical effects, The Conduit promises to be the very first FPS on Wii to bring the whole package. Matt and Bozon, by way of the Nintendo Voicechat podcast, report that High Voltage has plenty of publisher interest, but doesn't need the funding, so they're holding off choosing until the game is ready to roll, and can't be ruined by an over-zealous publisher. Hit the permalink for the trailer and footage of High Voltage's exclusive Wii graphics engine.

Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 Gameplay Montage

I came across a gameplay montage on gametrailers.com today. Wikidot won't allow me to embed from that source, so I loaded it into youtube. See it after the break.

Free Radical says Wii has huge FPS potential.

Or at least, Derek Littlewood did. In all the time the Wii has been out, FPS development has been going downhill when it should have been getting better. 1st generation wiimote controls all suffered in one way or another, but with Metroid Demos proving the IR Pointer's potential, Developers should have gotten the point. Instead, the FPS that hit the Wii in the first cycle, like Call of Duty and Medal of Honor are seeing cutbacks, leaving the Wii entirely, or sending in backbenchers.

Kotaku interviewed some Free radical personel, and had this little jewel at the end.

Littlewood said on a personal level he is intrigued with the new form of control the Wii offer to both gamers and developers.

"Personally, as a gamer, I think it has definite potential (as a first-person shooter controller)," he said. "It can be done, you can get really great FPS controls with the Wii. I think it has huge potential there."

This is a great step in the right direction. Here at WiiHD, we believe that those controls are what hardcore gaming will be all about in the 7th generation. If someone would just put everything together to deliver a complete 7th gen AAA experience, others will follow.
