Wii games to look like Xbox360 or PS3 titles



Wii games can look as good as Xbox360 or PlayStation3 games, US developer High Voltage Software (´The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy´, ´Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude´) claims.

In an exclusive IGN interview, Eric Nofsinger, the studio´s Chief Creative Officer, found some strong words.


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. We have real-time normal mapping, reflection and refraction, post process full screen effects, real-time shadows, projected lights and textures, specularity and fresnel effects, emissive and iridescent materials, interactive water, morphing, and much more all running with a rock solid frame rate on the Wii.

Our goal is to be the most technically innovative Wii developer on the planet. (...) With Conduit, we are trying to make a Wii game that looks like a 360 title.


The studio announced the development of a First Person Shooter called ´The Conduit´ and showed off their dedicated Wii engine called Quantum3 in a technology demo.





The IGN article describes the technical details of the engine:

It allows the developer to create graphic effects normally seen on other consoles with vertex and pixel shaders – specifically, dynamic bump-mapping (via tangent space normals or embossing), reflection and refraction (via real-time cube or spherical environmental maps), light / shadow maps, projected texture lights, specular and Fresnel effects, emissive and iridescent materials, advanced alpha blends, light beams / shafts, gloss and detail mapping, seamless resource streaming, projected shadows, heat distortion and motion blur, interactive water with dual-wave channels and complex surface effects, animated textures, and more.



As you remember, I broke the news that Nintendo´s new console would be underpowered compared to the other two competitors. Since then, most of us came to accept the fact that Wii games will not be on par with the competition in terms of visuals.

However, only two months ago Factor 5´s Julian Eggebrecht claimed that their graphics engine for Wii "does everything that the PS3 did and then some."

Is it really possible that Wii graphics become indistinguishable from PS3 and Xbox360 graphics, when compared at standard resolutions? I am still hesitant, since Eggebrecht may simply have been promising too much, while High Voltage Software has yet to publish a high-profile, blockbuster game. The tech demo does look very impressive, though, and that is the least we can expect of future Wii titles.

EDIT The first gameplay trailer for ´The Conduit´ has been released and the shooter looks very promising indeed. Take a look:

Only if companies are willing to put the time, money and effort into making them look good. If developers keep looking at the Wii as an afterthought, nothing will change. What the Wii needs is a triple A game from a third party that becomes a blockbuster. that might open the eyes of some of the other studios.

Hi guys this is the IALS once again

Not only is Conduit one of the worst looking games I have ever seen on Wii, its also features the most unispirational unimaginative and downright cheap ar direction ever!

I can't believe how cheap the game looks...it looks like total crap IMO....

art direction?what art direction??sci fi game?

taking real world location and putting in some bug like creatures with blasters = sci fi game?? Just wow.

Unbelievably cheap.

Seriously,anyone who thinks this looks any good needs to check his head! it doesn't even match Black for Playstation 2 not to mention first generation Gamecube games like Luigis Mansion or Rogue Leader.

And being that they talk so big is even more painful.

The screens are like the exact opposite of the talk.

It looks like Half Life 1 on steroids 1999 all over again totally generic and lame.

Thumbs down and back to the furure

i totaly agree with ILAS

the game looks nice, but nothing special. Black and Rogue leader still looks way better.

i mean... BLACK LOOKS BETTER. on PS2!! come on...

this looks nothing like PS3/360

i can almost count polygons on Conduit screenshots

just look at the screenshot with big green bugs. the bug is very low-polygonal and textures look like crap. almost like N64!!

pero detlic said...

i just spent more time looking at the screenshots... there are so many shortcomings.. the average lightning is the only good thing. low poly counts, crap textures, almost invisible bump mapping, crappy shadows, fog... and all that at 30 fps!

i can't believe that those guys at High Voltage are saying all that nice stuff about the game

NOT BEING FUNNY BUT THIS IS WEEK OLD ARTICAL SHIT RIGHT HERE WII ALL ALLREADY KNOW ALL ABOUT QUANTUM 3 YOUR A TAD LATE

It's not the graphics that gets Wiis off the shelves. It's the revolutionary gameplay and the fun factor that has Wiis selling at a phenomenal rate.

Graphics are nice but having fun is much better.

and, dude, you are blind and in denial

dont show off a game that looks like shit and pretend its high end Wii...

I bet you the whole fuckin industry is laughing at them
right now as we speak....

the screens look absolutely horribe! there is no way around! no excuses, nothing!

dont even get me started on the art direction it's that amatheurish

Metroid Prime 1 looks a BILLION times better than this.....its ridiculous

nz guy said...

i read it controles are metroid and mohh2 inspired so if it has decent online, who gives a shit how it looks?

M. Ferreira said...

such negativity from you guys... sheesh! "Waah waah waah looks ugly" "waah waah waah N64 game." ..methinks you should boot up your N64s once again to see what the games REALLY looked like. I guarantee that only one of them featured dynamic lighting(Donkey Kong 64), and none of them could render an environment like that. Yes, the characters need work, yes, the textures are fugly. However, the game 1) doesn't have a release date, and 2) therefore has plenty of time to be improved upon.

To those saying "Black looked better", yes. Yes it did. However, Black was a finished game, while The Conduit is still in development. Texturing and the like typically come AFTER the basics of the game are lain down. The screens give me the impression that there's a LOT of placeholder texturing is in place so the screens aren't filled with checkerboard blocks.

'course... who am I to talk? I'm just an electronics specialist with focus on video games, and a computer science major. :)

Anyway, give it time. If it looks like this in 6 months, THEN you have every right to laugh. If not, then I hope your words taste good with ketchup. :P

the engine is obviously genuine but its high voltages talent and execution of there tital that needs to be proven can the wii use 16 stage blender shaders YES FACT its just have high voltage really hit wii deving on the head or is it marketing talk

factor 5 and others will prove wiis big balls graphics but im douting high voltage will but ill take a wait and see angle on this everyone deserves a chance

wii can easy do 3x heroes 2 that was high ressed psp graphics no real use of lighting shadows shaders bump maps etc that game looks clean and fresh but not great or detailed

people need to realize wii can kick some visual ass wen programmed as a wii not a HD psp

Anonymous said...

the psp back ground graphics and charictor models and lack of envirement interaction stopped hereos 2 being a good game controls were perfect but the depth of the game and its physics etc are a total joke

just high ressed psp engine it made my blood boil when EA said its got wii grapjics it built for wii thats crap its a psp game with bells on so why lie great controls and 60 frames is great but there neds to be a accual game there to play

pero detlic said...

come on... just admit that conduit looks like crap. let me quote title here "wii games to look like Xbox360 of PS3 titles"... it's not even close to some better looking last gen games

it's not only black that looks better, its rogue leader, starfox adventures, metroid prime 1 and 2, RE4, F zero GX, Wind Waker... almos all GAMECUBE LAUNCH GAMES... and i don't even want to start counting Xbox 1 games...

the problem here is the big talk about it

i mean, i don't want some super realistic looking games, i just want them to LOOK BETTER THEN LAST GEN!! is it too mach to ask???

it's a VIDEO game system, i want to look at some nice stuff. graphics are not everything, but this is pure sadness

i can't wait to see what factor 5 can pull out....

Anonymous said...

Sorry mr . ferreitra but if a dev talks this big and then shows off screens that look like an ancient long forgotten nightmare... thats a damn travesty....

Seriously, I'm not jokin around I'm just stating hard facts: go back and play some of the better looking parts of Resi 4 with a proper cable on a solid television with solid settings and I bet you'll come to realize just HOW DEVASTATINGLY BAD THESE SHOTS LOOK compared to Resi 4 in just every regard.

Those graphics technically are like 10 steps back in time. They are like an insult to previous achievemnents on weaker hardware like GCN. And the art direction isn't even worth
(wow its quite creepy how poetic I get about this ;)

Anyway the point is, why would you show off screens to a game that look like the complete opposite of what your promise in the first place. That's bizarre. That makes you look like an utter fool. Btw I don't think they will add much to the environments or the character models we see in the shots to begin with. They look "finished". They won't go back and completely remake them with new geometry and textures and lighting.

give these guys a chance. i think their tech demo looks fucking excellent despite being a bit rigid-feeling. give them time to work on the screens from The Conduit. i'm sure it'll end up an xmas release at the absolute earliest, so give them some time.

jesus christ. how long have you guys been gaming? you've never seen screenshots of an EARLY FUCKING BUILD before? anyone see namco's screenshots from the new wii Tales game from 6 months ago? horrible. seen any recently? 100x better, and it's still months away from release-- and that's NAMCO. they have a lot of muscle behind them. high voltage is probably working at a snails pace to make sure they do the shit right. give them a break.

ials... jesus man. i still like you-- but why are you always the first one to jump all over falafelkid's articles with over-the-top clowning and shit-talking? don't you have any faith anymore man? god damn, you've turned into a pre-pubescent schoolgirl who got sand in her vagina. smoke a fucking joint and chill the fuck out, man. stop crying. leave the ps3 fanboy bitching and whining to the ps3 fanboys.

So my 42" Samsung HD monitor isn't a good TV? :P And component cables aren't the proper way to go? -whistles- hoo boy, was I off! :)

I already said that the game doesn't even have a publisher yet, and tactics pretty much said what I was about to - Early builds don't always match up to the final product. If High Voltage is talking big, then they're going to have to put their A-Game out, or they'll become the industry's laughingstock.

Anyway the point is, why would you show off screens to a game that look like the complete opposite of what your promise in the first place.

Simple - to get the name and reputation out there. Look at Killzone - the game chugged along at 15fps, but it got a reputation as Sony's Halo Killer early in development.

Btw I don't think they will add much to the environments or the character models we see in the shots to begin with. They look "finished". They won't go back and completely remake them with new geometry and textures and lighting.

Yes, like games haven't gone through several revisions before. ;) Tactics already pointed out Symphonia 2 - a 6 month time span created a COMPLETE 180 on the visual end of things. And your definition of "finished" is quite sad, if you think a publisher will pick up The Conduit in the shape it's in. This is an engine showpiece - not some high school project. The publisher is going to expect some results from this game. Does The Conduit look good for a final product? HELL NO! And I don't expect it to for another few months, yet!

Now... rather than pounce on games that were announced last week, you should just sit back watch their progress for a month or two. Trolling a blog won't make you any friends. :)

m ferreira stop with your excuses already ...your excuses won't turn Conduit into a visual stunner all of a sudden....

You still refuse to face reality..a reality that puts the screens and the talk in bitter bitter contrast...there is an enormous gab between what they claim and what the actual screens showcase namely disgustingly unimaginative and uninspirational character and level design,totally unrefined practically non existant art direction and an graphicsengine that is lightyears away from what it promises.

Thats the point thats fact thats reality!you cannot turn reality upsite down! you cannot make santa real you cannot make Michael Jackson black again.

Excue me but I insist, the game looks like crap to me and will most certainly hit shelves in its current crappy form unless they start from scratch again or radically change everything which is simply not the case...its not going to happen I'm afraid.

----------------------

Tactics c'mon chill man...can't you see that I'm frustrated because I'm a big Ninty fan. Can't you see that I want some big quality games for Wii? What's wrong with you! Conduit isn't what I consider quality Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, GTA4 or Alan Wake is. I don't see that type of stuff on Wii.

This shit is pissig me off....I mean tactics for gods sake check the screens for crying out loud they look bloody horrible! the game lacks any visual identy it ...it looks like a cheap Half Life 1 rip off mod.

Conduit simply looks bad and it's not my fault that it looks bad either Tactics! I'm only addressing it. I'm simply throwing in my two cents. That's all.

I mean I would be lying if I told you that I'm content with the screens. I won't act like I'm thankful just because it's an excusive Wi FPS and stfu.I'd rather do without an exclusive wii fps than with something that looks this cheap. I mean what were they thinking?

You cannot be serious Tactics. I mean let's take Prey for example. Conduit compared to Prey to me is like Alone In the dark the movie or House Of the Dead the movie compared to Alien 1. Conduit looks extremely shitty compared to other sci fi games.

And It's not just the Graphics alone that look shitty its the whole concept behind it the style...everything is so unimaginative and unoriginal....

I don't see any potential there. Red Steel all of a sudden looks like a digital high end dream come true compared to this....jesus christ tactics you cannot be serious....check your head man before you go buckwild on me.

again I am a big Ninty fan I'll buy Bully and Okami when I'm done with Zack and Wiki......but Conduit..nah man..Conduit is bullshit I'm afraid

Wii simply lacks true killer titles beyond the Ninty franchise pool. Wii lacks blockbusters like Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, Alan Wake, GTA 4 etc. That’s the main problem. There are no solid ground up 3rd party efforts that truely shine and get the most out of the system. That’s why gamers are complaining.
3rd parties don’t trust in Wii. They are not willing to take great risks on the system. There is a general notion that it won’t sell. And Ninty couldn’t care less as it seems.Ninty is not aggressive enough in securing deals with 3rd parties. Hell they don't even release adult themed games themselve so why would they encourage others to produce hardcore games?


Red Steel had the potential but fell short of the expectations due to lack of polish. So to conclude, buy GTA4, Metal Gear Solid and Little Big Planet and be happy (just like Ninty)

I think you are forgetting something here...and that is the engine shown was an early build. I applaude then for showing it. So many dev's nowadays do not show games or engines in early development because they are afraid that it will look bad for the game/Tech. Do any of you emember the days when companies showed there games in early development? No? Then do you remember the first images from Zelda:OTT? They looked blocky and really rough, but then they showed the final build and it was considered in its time to be one of the best looking games of all time!

Dev's just cant take that kind of risk because the money involved in gaming is so huge.

Wii isnt as powerfull as the PS3/360 and it doesnt output HD-resolutions either. But, to say that it isnt capable of great graphics is unfounded. Gamecube was a beautifully built system that when taken advantage of it could produce amazing results, Capcom managed to do this superbly with Resident Evil 4 and Wii is based on the same HardWare!

The problem is too many companies thought Wii was doomed to fail. And to get to grips with a system takes abit of time. So when you ignore something right upto its release its going to take time to recoup what was lost. And in doing so we have seen countless ports that are clearly to cash in on Wii's massive World-Wide success rate.

I think alot of the BIG guys in the business are looking hard at Wii and crunching the numbers. Because Wii is capable of much more from third parties and end of the day if you get your best dev team and make the best software you can then your going to shift alot of units. And you can do this at a fraction of the price of anyother system.

That my friends makes perfect Business sense!

Excuse me but I don't even get what you fanboys won't from me?

Again, I'm not against you or Ninty. I am a Nintendo fan ever since the NES days. Please don't get it twisted. However, I'm not too blind to point out the problems. Nintendo is clearly struggling to satisfy the hardcore audience. And it's not the publishers fault imo. Nintendo isn't doing enough to get them on board and to encourage them.

The Gamcube era had exactly one 3rd party killer title and that was Resi 4 which came out pretty late in the consoles lifecycle.
That's what is missing: Resi 4 caliber games.

Nintendo needs to address these issues. Sure rightnow they are successfull cause wiis are flying off the shelves..they think they can rest on their laurels. But the question is for how long? How long can they piss core gamers off? Who will buy their next console? Will it be as innovative as Wii? Nintendo is riding the thin line between failure and success

I think passing judgement on a game that is still in it's early stages is premature. I doubt the whole industry is laughing at High Voltage. They have talked a big game, but we will not know if they can deliver until the game is completed and finds a publisher (which might not happen). In the meantime, shots have been posted of their WiiWare title Gyrostarr. These look very nice and maybe lend a little credibility to the statements these guys are making.
I agree with you 100% about Nintendo not being aggressive enough regarding third parties. I feel Nintendo is doing an excellent job themselves balancing traditional and casual games, but the rest of the industry is not. Nintendo needs to offer to publish some of these third party titles or pay developers for some exclusive triple A titles. It's very difficult for any company to support a console by themselves.

Biohazard said...

"If you think those shots show potential and do justuce to what the dev promises then you must clearly have a loss of reality!"

When did I, or anyone else, say that those screens do any justice to the game? In fact, when did anyone, besides yourself, pass any judgment on the game?

Did you even read what M. Ferreira and others have posted? These screens are most likely from an early build, so of course it's not going to show the game's graphical potential! If you saw the tech demo running on the Wii hardware, it's obvious the guys from High Voltage Software are aiming for a quality higher than the screens we just saw. As M. Ferreira and others have pointed out, there have been other games that have went through a similar transition, so it's not really implausible and unrealistic to expect the game to get better in visuals

Again, we're not passing any judgments on the game until it comes out. We're only making speculations and observations. With no release date and no publisher, I think it is safe to say that High Voltage Software has ample time to take advantage of the visuals.

"Again, I'm not against you or Ninty. I am a Nintendo fan ever since the NES days. Please don't get it twisted. However, I'm not too blind to point out the problems. Nintendo is clearly struggling to satisfy the hardcore audience. And it's not the publishers fault imo. Nintendo isn't doing enough to get them on board and to encourage them"

What the hell kind of a game you have been making negative judgments on? High Voltage Software has addressed these complaints about how the Wii isn't getting those "hardcore" games you've been yearning for, so The Conduit will be their contribution to help build up that "hardcore" base you want Nintendo to obtain. The Conduit may be least likely to win Game of the Year awards and score anything higher 8.0, but at least we do have a development company that are actually addressing the issue you've been bitching about right now.

"Excuse me but I don't even get what you fanboys won't from me"

What do the fanboys "won't" from you? I don't know what they "won't," but I think they want you to stop judging games before they come out.

IALS, i know exactly what you mean

FACT- wii lacks quality 3th party games, both in terms of gameplay and graphics

wii has the worst average score for the games (calculated from gamerankings or something) and the worst average for top 10% games. it's behind 360, PS3 and all last gen systems

the counduit is not gonna change that! i'll give you a stick to hit me with if conduit gets something higher then 7.5

somebody mentioned symphonia 2... it looks just like GC's symphonia and 10 times better than conduit. yes, i meant it's early screens

from what i saw in last 8 years, early screens are usually just slightly worse than final game

btw, finaly, one decent RPG for wii....

i'm, as big fan of nintendo, just dissapointed in Wii

i played pikmin 2 today... it beats 95% of wii games in visuals

i totally agree with this poster:


"I think it is funny that all the “game experts” in the media and on blogs refuse to understand the power of family entertainment. Understand that what really put Playstation 2 (and 1) over the top in terms of success was the shear number of titles available for those platforms. Sure there were tons of great AAA titles for the serious gamer but if mom and dad wanted to buy the latest kid’s movie tie-in title, they did it on the Playstation.

Now Nintendo has handily won back the family entertainment dollars and there is a dearth of crappy titles aimed at the kiddos. So what does that mean exactly? It means that the Wii has succeeded in fracturing the market and will continue to sell like hotcakes to moms and dads looking to buy little Johnny and Suzie their first console.

Where in the last generation, Dad would say, “cool I can get myself a PS2 cause there are tons of kids games” the current generation’s mom says “Oh honey, look we can all play together!” Guess what? Mom, Dad, little Johnny and Suzie are now proud owners of a Wii.

And that my little hardcore gamer nerds is why the Wii will continue to dominate the sales charts for years to come. The dirty secret is that the kids titles drive a console’s success just a equally as the AAA titles.

But don’t be alarmed, your consoles will be plenty healthy and offer tons of great mature gamer content. The market is just that big."

Hi, I couldn’t resist to comment on this.

Nintendo would love to produce some “hardcore”games that’s usually being made by third party. But their core business is to make their own games, on their own “preferred” platform. To suddenly produced, and therefore “take over” the last and remaining market share that third party “have left” to make money on – will destroy Nintendo’s business and throw gasoline into fire regarding the company being the only one that make money on their platform.

Instead of having new IP’s that’s similar to other, they strive to push more creativity in new games in hope that other will follow suit and doing something similar. This is Nintendo’s way of supporting developers to make better games and hopefully capitalize on their efforts.

Mario Galaxy, Metroid Corruption and so on...

you know, it seems to me that the "thing to do" nowadays is to endlessly praise the huge international conglomerates for their sequels, and completely write off the small independent developers when they try to hype their product, or do something revolutionary. it's sad, really. remember when "final fantasy" was getting hyped by a teensy-weensy little group of japanese nerds called "squaresoft"?

sure... we could've all just written it off-- oh, the graphics look bad-- the inventory screen is counter-intuitive-- it's a total D&D rip-off-- an alliteration for a name? that's cheezy! but guess what? they deserved a chance-- just like

ea
ubisoft
take2
capcom
konami
bungie
enix
rare
retro
level5
factor5
clover
data-east
culture brain
nibris

what ever happened to equality and open-mindedness? i don't understand why people like YOU, ials, jump all over the first sign of an opportunity to derail the hype train of every little tiny independent developer in the world.

art direction? uninspirational? unimaginitive? i can't believe i have to tell you that these are YOUR (very) objective opinions. i also can't believe that i have to remind you, again, that THESE ARE SCREENSHOTS OF AN EARLY BUILD OF A GAME BY A TINY, UNKNOWN DEVELOPER WITH NO PUBLISHER. GIVE THEM A CHANCE.

new-to-the-industry publishers have nothing to ride on but hype. they don't have a solid name in the industry that will sell their bullshit games no matter what they look or play like.

bash the fucking game once it comes out and sucks. until then, stay cynical, but remind yourself and those around you that every little game publisher deserves a chance to at least release a game and let the players decide for themselves when they see the final product.

I wouldn't mind getting on my knees right now and just swallowing every single one of you alls cum... see, I have nothing better to do than to write in other people's Blogs!!(Which are alot more important than me, might I add, otherwise why would I be writing here) See I look for things that look cool, interesting, and insightful, then, I just find any excuse to bash it any way that I can. Maybe that way I can "seem" a little more important and people can actually think that I know what the fuck I'm talking about... But I just realized nobody is GIVING A SHIT AND ARE STILL GONNA FORK OVER 50 BUCKS FOR THE CONDUIT WHEN IT COMES OUT!!!! \ so I guess I'll just expose myself right here. Now I have a little trouble with 8 inchers so dont be to rough on me. If I cant deepthroat you dont force me 2, Instead just bend me over and stick it in my ass.... I swear I'll absolutely love it....Oh and for those that dont know what IALS is... I'm giving Falafel kid here the exclusive... IALS + (I) (Absolutely) (Looove) (SUCKING) -I-A-L-S-

enjoy the most horrible looking game that is in early production. the worst game i have NEVER played, and dont mind me comparing it to games that have already been in the market and are 100% finished. Thats me just struggling to say," please stick your long cock in my mouth so I could fulfill my hunger"! It looks horrible doesnt it, well the pictures anyway I'm not important enough for them to let me see an early teaser or anything of that sort... ok guys line up and zipp down for I'm ready for a cock buffet..

Couldnt be bothered reading over most of the posts.

Been busy with business and the odd game or two in the little of free time I have. No reading up on games either, prefer to play them.

Anyways....I had a glance of that tech demo a week or so ago. It was so so, but early. I think they just needed to choose their words better than hyping something up at this stage which is nowhere near evident.

Just creates a negative first impression.

Wait till it's done by not good marketing IMO.

Really? I couldn't tell the difference. Maybe you're a schizophrenic who is stalking falafelkid through this blog channel, or an attention whore, or perhaps, all of the above, because you all are annoying and obnoxious either way.

Just update your blog falafelkid so these guys can stop. It has been almost a month now....

GTA IV isn't that good is it? lol.

The first gameplay footage of the conduit is released. The game looks great. It's far better looking in motion. The previously released screenshots didn't do the game any justice. If only the gameplay is as good as a MP3 or even better, this could be a great game from a 3rd party developer. With the factor 5 game coming this year and red steel 2(hopefully with improved controls), this could be a good year in terms of exclusive third party games.

wow... the new trailer for conduit looks fucking SWEEEEEET. thank god we all gave them a chance to show what they could do instead of just writing them off and making rash assumptions based on our own preconceived notions, right? right?

this game is going to rock. HARD. i'd put money on it.
