_______________________________________________

Platform: PlayStation 3

-One campaign focusing on Nathan Hale across USA, 1 player
-One separate story based campaign supporting 2 players offline, 8 players Online

RESISTANCE 2

I just got my latest GameInformer and its cover feature is Resistance 2!!!!!!

Checking it out now... will update. (didn't see this on first two pages so assumed it hasn't been posted)

EDIT 1: HUGE cooperative game... EIGHT-PLAYER story-driven campaign along side single-player campaign. SIXTY-PLAYER Competitive modes... HUGE United States Landscapes as backdrops.

EDIT 2: "It is, in short, a tour de force for the untapped might of the PlayStation 3"

EDIT 3: Narrative stays with Hale the whole time... not Rachel. Hale shot down in Iceland, escapes to US and becomes part of program called Sentinels...

EDIT 4: Chameleon.. Stalker with total cloaking ability

EDIT 5: Overcoming stigma that boss encounters don't work in FPS games..

EDIT 6: Eight player coop over PSN, two player local

EDIT 7: CLASSES! Unique character with one of three basic templates... tank with heavy weaponry, special ops for distance (bullseye modified with zoom), medic

I'm READING FAST!

I cant make my own thread, stupid gaf mods., someone make a thread!

EDIT 8: Online matching... standard difficulty discarded for scaled challenges for team skill..

EDIT 9: Partially randomized geometry... levels are different with each playthrough

EDIT 10: again... 60 players online. want sense of epic b attle.. dont want fast-furious gameplay to be focus, more focused on squad v squad.

EDIT 11: will log into smaller four-to-eight man lobbies for each squad... encouraging communication and camaraderie, squad will be tasked witha particular objective. careful level design aims to deliver intense combat zones or small team conflicts that flow within arena of larger battle.

EDIT 12: Dedicated gaming community with stat servers for faster matchmaching than any console game of 2007. full-featured profile pages through myresistance.net will incorporate social networking concepts. open clan and party system to encourage community...no player invites needed.

EDIT 13: Aiming to deliver mobile-phone-quality sound.

EDIT 13: Aiming to deliver mobile-phone-quality sound.

EDIT 14: Futher tapped power of PS3... more enemies onscreen, better AI, better lighting and shaders (SCREENSHOTS LOOK AMAZING!!!). More comples normal mapping and detail mapping combine to deliver textures that look amazing from afar and at extremely close distances.

EDIT 15: AI getting a lot more attention.. will scaled on-the-fly to players perspective and viewpoint... aka enemies cloesr to the player will actually have more spohisicated AI routines than those further away. assailants in your direct field of view received heightened intelligence. easily more cunning than before

sorry for typos... typing fast

EDIT 16: listened to complaints... working on solution to long checkpoints and health system. not positive what final solution will be.

EDIT 17: "Our time playing was a blast"... each character class contributes in a unique way and "we loved the strategy-laden medic"... unique sense of teamwork

EDIT 18: Mysterious "Cloven"

EDIT 19: "Resistance 2 will be too epic to dismiss as anything but one of the biggest, boldest, and most high-reaching titles of 2008. It's a game that won't be ignored." [END ARTICLE]


RELEASE: FALL 2008

I think they should re-create St Peter's Basilica as the first level and slaughter hundreds of martians in there.

This is Insomniac we're talking about. There's no reason to doubt them if you know their track record.

I can only find one screen.

EDIT: Check OP.

Damn, how do you make it through social life...

OT, the scans look ace. I never got around to finishing the first game, because it bore me at some point, I think I'll have a go at it soon...

I really liked resistance but I played only the first 4 levels, because I was playing thru Gears of War. Then my PS3 got stolen with my Resistance copy and after that I just didnt bother going back. Is this one coming out in 2008 or next year?

I might still try to get a copy of resistance if I have nothing else to play though.

Wow, sounds great! 8 player co-op here I come!!!! Those shots are definitely not in-game though....

It's Insomniac... they never have released CG as ingame shots... never... remember all those that claimed that the early shots of Rachet and Clank were fake? Well the final product proved them wrong...

+1, if you look at the jump graphically between Resistance 1 and Ratchet it should be enough to convince you that these shots aren't CG....they aren't even CG quality.

I love the way a consumate vendor of platform games just suddenly starts producing FPS's that put companies with years of experience to shame.

It's looking as good if not better than KZ2 if those scans are anything to go by!

I wouldnt go as far as saying better than killzone 2. Nothing graphically touches it imho. Better than ratchet & clank is fair. And thats not to down the scans. R&C is a pretty impressive looking game.

Yeah, but I honestly wasn't even that impressed by Ratchet and Clanks graphics. The character models were great and the animation was extremely well done, but the environments looked pretty.....lacking. (very low poly hid behind some nice shaders) Hopefully the screenshots do resemble the game when it comes out though. The first game was a blast but got monotonous after a month.
