These screens were taken before a lot of the recent polishing has gone into the game.

In another thread I said lighting has been going in. This is one of the last things to go into some of these levels. This lighting is essentially another coating of polish that really just gives some areas a completely different feel. Some seem to be taking that comment a bit out of context (NeoGAF etc.). The overall point is that we're in the polishing phase now, and the game is continuing to look better and better and some levels have made huge jumps over the past month.

man i wish i had money to buy a ps3 or any of the new consoles, but i got to say i love the art direction of this game, looks very gritty something that alot of pc developer get wrong, not just technical features but making a game world fit in with the story, hell Unreal 1 was awsome in the firt level back in the day, great atmosphere and pretty scary first time playing it.

Oh and had a question, will this game have multiplayer options, because it seems like a perfect fit for this type of game.

40 player deathmatch online (also team deathmatch)
split screen deathmatch (not online)
single player co-op (not online)
meltdown mode (similar to ut2k4's nodes/onslaught)

there might be more unannounced modes, the game is going to have vehicles as well.

I have a feeling this team is better at making games then the dev of killzone, i mean that game wasnt bad but it wasnt anything special either. Iam really impressed with the 40 player online thing, especially for a console. definate buy in the future when i get some money and if college doesnt suck me dry every 3 months of all my money i might save enought to buy all 3 new consoles.

Looks pretty good, especially if these are old shots. Hopefully they'll release some footage soon.

The developers behind this game are the makers of the Rachet and Clank series who have shown to have alot of skill in being able to push consoles even in first generation software by them (original Rachet and Clank was amazing for its time). The killzone team actually has alot of artistic and design talent but they lack alot of engine programming talent. The story and atmosphere of killzone were amazing, saddly the games engine had some pretty bad bugs with the LOD system.

art has that hl2 look but better not in technical specs but i like the whole bleakness of the graphics, as if the world around you is in alot of trouble and there is reason for killing hordes of aliens.

Not too shabby. If I could scrounge up the money I'd like to get a ps3. I was thinking about taking my chances with ebay. I'd buy 2 on my credit card and sell one on ebay hoping that I could get mine paid for.:D

It does look quite nice. I like the dev's color and style, the lighting in some of the shots is quite nice.

Some of the textures are blah, but if they add some good bump/parallax mapping this game would look incredible. Very nice though.

The leaver swarm looked awsome!

Hey thanks for the heads up badboy!

The gameplay mechanics seem pretty cool so far. This game should have some nice weapons as well, Insomniac are good in that department.

yeah I think thats the most leapers we have seen at once, that part was pretty damn cool. Those menials are freaky though, they have potential to be really scary if they place them right. (ie. dark hallways and stuff lol)

Hey thanks for the heads up badboy!
no problem. this is definately one of the games ill be picking up at launch, so why not share the good stuff. ;)

yeah, the psm had a list of some of the weapons. I think I typed it up on another forum, I'll try to find it.

edit:
here ya go
-weapons:
MSA2 carbine
Rossmore 236
Bullseye (taging gun)
Auger (energy weapon that shoots through solid objects, or can be used as a sheid w/ secondary fire)
M54 Law (shoot a missle that you can guide with a laser almost hl2 like, but you can freeze the missile in the air and fire off mini missles using alt fire)
Sapper (shoots small globs that you can pile up into any shape you want, shooting the glob will set off a chain reaction of explosions)
grenades (normal, and hedgehog grenades). More weapons not yet known also (they say this list is only half of the known weapons). *Mentioned you can man a turret and spray down enemies.

^btw, that only is about half of the weapons according to PSM, and every weapon has a secondary fire.

Heh, funny ...I have the issue I think you're talking about but haven't gotten a chance to really read through it. I'll bring it to work or something tomorrow and check it out when I get a chance.

yeah that psm issue is what got me hyped for the game. before I was like "looks decent, ill look out for it", now I get more info about the game i'm like "definately buying at launch, no doubt about it"

You should definately check that article out.

Does anyone have any info about the PS3s online capability?
Have Sony arranged anything like XB Live as such?

Would appreciate any linkys. I hope it is the case, because I haven't totally ruled out picking one of these up next year.

Yeah, same here.

Would be a total washout having a cool console without decent online play nowadays.

Fingers crossed Sony will put the backing well into it.

It looks good. Not spectacular, but still very nice for a launch game, and the 40 player online mode sounds very cool. The guns sound nice, but I have to admit the setting and some elements do seem a bit generic. The leaper swarm looked almost exactly the same as the Flood infection form encounters in Halo, and the monsters and environments don't exactly stand out. But, as long as the game is fun, that's what counts.

Insomniac has quite a bit of talent. Their first game was Disruptor, which was one of the few good FPS games on the Playstation. They then made Spyro 1, 2, and 3, and then moved on to the Ratchet and Clank series, which became one of my favorite series on the PS2. Resistance marks their return to the FPS genre (although the Ratchet series half-way evolved into that), hopefully it will end up showing that they still have the capability to make an entertaining FPS despite the certain amount of unoriginality of it.

And I thought the Flood looked exactly like the creatures in Half-life! ;) So maybe they got the idea from both hl and halo(two of the best fps games I've ever played).
Imo it looks very good, the quality of those picture don't do the game justice comparing to the other videos that have been released this year. This is a game that should be on everyone's list of games to buy for the ps3! They've even used the tilting function for something! :D Hate it when you have to mash some buttons, like in Dead Rising, to get free form creatures attacking you; shaking the contoller seems much better since that's what you really want to do. (nana2)

Yeah, I thought the shaking the controller thing was a nice implement of the tilt feature.

They have commented on other types of controller stuff. One example was to hold the controller normally, and push/punch the right side forward with your hand to do a melee attack with the butt of your gun. Sounds pretty intuitive if you ask me. And they will allow the feature to be turned off incase some find it better to press the button.

I'll go grab the quotes for you guys. :)
