Conduit 2 includes optional MotionPlus support

High Voltage Software experimented with support for the MotionPlus peripheral in The Conduit, but omitted it from the final game. Sega announced today that the sequel will allow players to augment the game's controls with the underused gyroscope peripheral. According to the announcement, in...

'Swords' is a Wii game about swords

click to see the sabery screensIf using the Wii Remote and MotionPlus to control a sword sounds like the sword of thing you'd be into, you should consider Majesco's new game Swords -- because that's basically the whole game. Swords, developed by Panic Button, is a time-traveling arena combat...
