Game News: The Conduit Pre-Order Upgrade Revealed

An interesting tidbit of information regarding pre-ordering the highly-anticipated upcoming Wii exclusive title, The Conduit was just announced.

Here’s a snippet from Sega of America’s statement:

For a limited time, pre-order The Conduit at GameStop and receive a Special Edition upgrade, which includes:

• Follow the Conduit from concept to creation in the 24-page “making-of” book.
• Unlock the secrets of the The Conduit with the “All-Seeing Eye” (A.S.E.), featuring custom detailing and light projection.

Overkill is the newest entry in the famous House of the Dead light-gun arcade games and the second House of the Dead game to grace Nintendo’s little white box.

Don’t you wish that Sega would just put Sonic back the way he’s supposed to be without all the fancy 3D and annoying extra characters? Well if so, this game is only half for you. Half?
