The Grinder - amazing screens!!!



















I'll go as far as to say that this game looks better than some 360/PS3 games in my opinion. High Voltage is using their "Imposter and Instancing technology" to full effect here by being able to render many fully detailed enemies (65 to start and probably a lot more when the game is finished). Each enemy according to High Voltage has more detail on them than just about any Wii game seen yet and this is only the beginning of what the Quantum 3 engine can do apparently.

The game is set in a world where monsters are real and you'll be killing Vampires, Werewolf's and the Undead. You'll have four different characters to choose from to get you through the story mode. The most interesting aspect of this game maybe the inclusion of a 4 player co-op online mode which will allow for you and your friends to take on the story mode from start to finish with no lag at all (allegedly).

The Grinder is not supposed to be finished and ready to ship until the Holiday season of 2010, so if you have any complaints of how the game looks thus far, you can be sure that High Voltage has plenty of time to perfect this game in the year and a half of development time it still has to go. That right there might be the only thing wrong with this game, why did they have to tease us so early on! LOL.

Well, I guess when you're proud of your work it's hard to not show it to people.....

Excited? amazed? don't care? Tell me what you think in the comment section.

Best Wii game by far.

Albeit some graphics issues but I am sure these will be fixed come release.

Oh and Metaldave I think loyal fans of this site deserve to see some of the new Famitsu scans of No More Heroes 2.

They look wicked with dual wieled katana combat!!!

excited? amazed? i think my heads just been blown off. look how much they improved the conduits graphics from when we first seen it. this could be the game that actually matches 360 games visually.

I've seen the No More Heroes 2 scans and I think I wait until I can get some actual screen shots and not tiny little scans. Normally I'd be all over that but The Grinder deserves it's spot in the sun on the front of the page for now.

If you want to see the NMH2 scans, simply go over to GoNintendo and check them out.

It's a shame this won't be out until holiday of 2010 but it should be really good. I just hope there is some other game with online co-op before then because I can't wait that long. But my guess is I will have to wait, and it will be well worth it in the end. This game looks awesome.

High Voltage Software are making some amazing looking games but the thing is we won't be getting more of these good looking games if no one buys them when they come out.

I am blown away with the stuff HVS is turning out. I hope their titles do well. They certainly deserve it. I agree Wii gamers/fans have to support the QUALITY games to demonstrate their loyalty and numbers. Build it and they will come!! Finally the drought seems to be ending. There are many cool looking games coming out (Silent Hill, The Grudge/Feel, etc.)
I plan on buying RE:Darkside Chronicles, the Conduit, the Grinder, & Gladiator on day one for myself.
In addition, I usually buy other cool titles as gifts for friends and relatives. I recently bought Deadly Creatures and Mushroom Men as gifts for my nephew. I really think these two titles were also overlooked by many...
