Conduit 2 Interview With Matt Corso
We catch up with Conduit 2 art director Matt Corso about the shooter's development.
• Mr. Corso, you’re lucky the game is fun, because your art direction sucks. The first Conduit had some of the worst art direction I have EVER seen in a game. High Voltage has some talented technicians, but their art department still leaves something to be desired for. It doesn't seem like they have a knack for imagining things that are interesting. (@ 1:13) They seriously couldn't come up with something other than 'Orange Soda' to put on a vending machine? I hope they improved upon it in the sequel, even though it still looks like an eyesore. I'm not trying to be mean. I just think it is a bit unacceptable that with a game engine as powerful as Quantum 3, they can't create a decent enough art direction to go along with it and take full advantage of what that engine offers.
I bought and played through the first one, but traded it in because of the broken online play, and the extremely linear single player, and I couldn't see myself wanting to replay it down the road. The second one looks like its addressed a lot of the problems with the first one, and is definitely a first day buy for me, because I'm tired of paying $60 a year to play Call of Duty and Halo online. Ok, that's a lie, I like my 360 too, but I'm excited for a good online shooter for the Wii! =)
The visuals look as if they have improved since the previous video. I liked the first Conduit, so hopefully this one turns out even better.
woooowwww this one looks so much better than the first. and the graphics look great for the wii. i wasn't too excited for the first one, but this looks like it has great potential.
This looks like it will definitely top the first... I feel like they could have done such a much better job if they'd taken the time.
Pretty good interview in general. I'm still a bit wary of the game but if it's at least as good as the first one with a few necessary improvements in some key areas it should be pretty decent overall.
I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this game! It's a strong improvement over the original.
Can't wait oh, and to clear this up before we get some people saying this, the AI has probaly been set to easy, so don't say it looks stupid or too easy.
I really liked the Conduit, but Conduit 2 looks even better. I said I was probably going to wait for a price drop, but I might get Conduit 2 sooner.
I don't think attacking that person would do you any good. Better keep that comment to yourself.
