Okay, here's how this thread works:
When some important announcement is made at E3, post it here. This will prevent a new thread for ever single announcement! Please don't post wild speculation! :)

  • The same company that made The Conduit (High Voltage Software) has 2 new games planned for release next year. Both will feature graphics as good as (or, more likely, better than) The Conduit because they're using the same engine (Quantum 3), but updates will have been made by the time of release.

    The first of the games, Gladiator A.D., is exactly what it sounds like; you, as a gladiator, fight other gladiators. It looks to be very gory and full of cringe-inducing finishing moves. I've already seen a screenshot reminiscent of a certain scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail ("'Tis but a scratch!").

    The other, a 4-player online coop game similar to Left 4 Dead, is named The Grinder. This fps will have you shooting vampires, werewolves, and other as-of-yet unnamed baddies with 3 other players, either through local multiplayer or online multiplayer. You do have the choice to player single-player, but then the other 3 players are replaced by AI. Wii Speak has been confirmed, but we still don't know whether or nor friend codes are required to talk with teammates. I'm really hoping that High Voltage Software manages to convince Nintendo to let them allow players to talk to other players on their team, even without their friend code, seeing as to how communication would be relevant in a game like this. This seems a bit more likely to happen simply because the game seems like it will bear a Mature rating, and if players are mature enough to own a Mature rated title, they are certainly mature enough to speak with other players, regardless of whether they know them or not.
