High Voltage, the studio behind the (latest) bacon-saver for Wii core gamers, The Conduit, says his house will show off two more Wii exclusives at E3, capable of five dozen onscreen foes, minimum.

HV exec Eric Nofsinger says they'll be showing "two big ones" at E3 - no, not that - both of them FPSes like The Conduit. In an interview with the French site Nintendo Master, he said High Voltage is looking "to do some things that are very, very rare, even on the 360 or PS3."

Some of the things we're doing with sheer number of enemies onscreen and things like that are very impressive. We've got a demo that we'll be showing, where the average number of enemies on the screen at a given time is 65. And it goes up. There's areas where you go onto a vista and there's an incredible number of enemies.

I'm not sure that 65 on-screen enemies, on average, is all that "rare" for the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, which can handle multiple hundreds. Hell, MAG is gonna do 256 of them in multiplayer. But Nofsinger almost certainly is being mindful of the disappointment in Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop's comparatively sparse zombie horde.

I really getting tired of everyone who isn't down with a certain system getting called out for being a troll when they are merely expressing opinions or stating facts. I know, I know, "Welcome to teh internets!".

Yes, I know there are a ton of people on here with nothing better to do with their lives than to try to start a flame war, but it is gotten to the point where nobody can say anything negative about any system with out being piled on and labeled troll.

Are you guys really so insecure about your lives that nobody can say anything bad about anything you like? Just because you own a system that somebody says is "a toy", "has no games worth playing", "RRODs if you look at it funny", "can't keep an exclusive to save it's life" or whatever, it DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU SUCK ALSO!!! Quit taking that shit personally and attacking EVERYONE in sight that sees things differently. Yes, I am looking @ you Excel, but this is meant for everybody else also.

EVERY system ever made has bad points. Why is this so hard for people to accept?

The PS3: Has the worst online experience out there. The Store is a joke! It has absolutely NONE of the classic PS1 games that it should. (The Big N has everyone crushed in that department.) The online play maybe free but it is noticeably so. Oh and FYI: HOME SUCKS ASS!!! It is nothing but a bunch of dudes with chick avatars doing the Running Man while Sony cashes in on selling spaces, clothing and furniture. Yes, I am bitter that I had to pay a total of $2.50 for my ninja outfit.

360: XBL is chock full of racist, homophobic, 12 year olds that MS refuses to do anything about. They are more concerned with the integrity of Gamerscores and banning people who make reference to their sexual orientation in their bios or Gamertags. Oh and that whole RROD thing didn't work out to well for them either. I count myself lucky that I am only on my second one.

Wii: The Wii is what it is. It is meant for entertaining a diverse GROUP of people that are not necessarily "gamers". It is best enjoyed while playing with friends or at parties. It is the gaming equivalent of a Karaoke machine. Great fun in groups, not so much on your own. (Unless you are playing retro games from the VC.) I can think of a few games that I enjoy playing on my own, but most of the library is shovelware or Gamecube ports with waggle.

I own, use and enjoy all 3 systems. Do I get the SAME enjoyment from them all? No. That is why there IS more than one console out there. It's a good thing that there is to because the last time I checked there was more than one type of gamer. Which begs the infamous question: "Can't we all just get along??"
