So allegedly the new Game Informer's got the scoop on the sequel to the well regarded "Resistance Fall Of Man". PS3 of course, but the gossip is:

 

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

 

Here's the link.

Hell, I wish folks would turn out for the original! I haven't bought any of the map packs cause very few folks had PS3's when we were playing it. Anyone still have the first and would be interested in playing online? It's a whole crapload of fun IMHO (especially when playing with Fighting Fish:)).

I'll play some Resistance on Monday night as well.

 

As far as Resistance 2. I guess 8 player co-op is kinda cool. Maps that change geometry randomly thats ok. Insomniac designed boss battles, I guess they're alright. Awe who am I kidding, it sounds awesome. The only thing that might suck is having to play with 59 other :asshat

 

Now how long before Gears of War 2 is announced to try and steal Insomniacs thunder??? And isn't there supposed to be another PS3 exclusive FPS coming out this fall. Oh yeah, KillZone 2. That game has a lot of competition from Resistance 2.

This is a major title for me. R:FOM was my launch PS3 game, and still the best thing on the platform. It was probably my favorite game of 2006 as well. Just had great design, brilliant weapons, good SP maps, and a wonderful look. I'll be all over this thing.

 

I'd be interested in some R:FOM MP. I never played it with anyone but strangers.

Don't know - but considering the high quality of the 1st title and that this one isn't exactly coming out next month - do yourself a favor and simply play the 1st one. Although it's been awhile since I've played the game I remember enjoying pretty much all of it thinking of it as a well done FPS with guns by those Ratchet and Clank guys. (No, there aren't any disco balls - but it's hard to imagine many other teams coming up with some of the stuff those guys do :) )

Yes Keith, you will be completely lost. If you don't play the first Resistance there is no way that you could even remotely comprehend the second game.

 

Without sarcasm, I'm sure that they will present a detailed synopsis before the second game begins. But like Dave said, you should probably play the game for no other reason than it being a great game.
