4 player online co-op, MotionPlus support, WiiSpeak likelyPre-E3 2009: The Grinder Revealed
Vampires, werewolves, zombies -- grind them to hell in High Voltage Software's stunning new cooperative online FPS.
Yesterday IGN exclusively unveiled High Voltage Software's new Wii title, Gladiator A.D., a very promising 3D fighter that pushes Nintendo's hardware where graphics are concerned. Today, though, we've got a special treat that we think fans of the Left 4 Dead series are simply going to love. It's called The Grinder and it's a blood-drenched first-person shooter designed to accommodate four-player online cooperative action. This title looks absolutely phenomenal, as you're going to see below. Rather than spoil any more details, we've let the developer do the talking. Below, HVS CEO and founder Kerry Ganofsky, chief creative officer Eric Nofsinger and lead art director Matt Corso tell all about The Grinder. We think you're going to want to move this extraordinary Wii-exclusive to the tops of your must-have lists.
Full article/interview here.IGN said:So far the co-op mode has been working out great, with zero lag while displaying tons of enemies on the screen at once. We’ve wanted this feature in our games for a long time and we’re really proud to be bringing this feature to The Grinder. Oh and there’s also split screen coop mode currently running in the demo, which is also pretty awesome for those who may not have access to play together using a Wi-Fi connection.
