“[The original online mode was] pretty symmetrical, pretty safe. [The Invasion Mode is] similar to Horde Mode in Gears Of war 2 – just you and a bunch of buddies fighting against bad guys…we’re very interested in it (DLC). Whatever it takes to give legs to the community side is cool.” – Joshua Olson, producer

My biggest concerns with Conduit’s 2 online functionality are hackers and glitches. Those two issues were prominent in the original, though we’ve heard that the developers are trying to prevent those problems from creeping into the sequel.

Update: Added higher-quality screenshots

Regarding the screenshots, we once again have some in low-quality. That’s because for some odd reason, they were published as extremely small images…I’m talking thumbnails. I tried to resize them all, but that obviously meant the quality of the screenshots would take a hit!

Last month, the Wii saw the release of a significant game, Monster Hunter Tri. The title has received heavy marketing from Capcom with television commercials and online promotion. However, there have been a number of questions regarding how well Tri would do overseas as the series has not reached the same popularity in Europe and North America as it has in Japan.

Well, the game apparently sold about 126,000 units in the United States. This is, of course, based on data from NPD. Monster Hunter Tri launched on April 20, so that data includes less than two weeks from sales. Tri didn’t set the sales charts on fire, but Capcom is most likely relatively pleased with how it’s performing so far.
