RESISTANCE 2 - Hype Thread w/latest info

OK that IGN review just put me back into Day 1 territory for this.

Looks amazing, is epic in scope and filled to the fucking brim with content. I won't feel bad shelling out $60 bucks for this.

Hey SF bay area gaffers.

Highly recommend you come to the Metreon for the midnight event (swag, a good deal on the CE and more). If you're 21 or older and coming, you should definitely send me a PM with your first and last name.

More details on that to come.

Which day is this event? Nov 7th?
 
I though the bellock was useless, but it's extremely useful in the skirmirsh mode. When you have to defend a node or a target you can literally make a firewall with the secondary fire and then make a rain of grenade, all the while staying safe behind your allies and corners using wall rebounds.

And it's really nice to attack nodes too:D

I'm full of news and info today:

Want to win a trip to our community day next week at the studio in Burbank?

You should post in this thread at MyRes:

http://www.myresistance.net/smf/index.php?topic=81906.0


And BTW - if you're in the LA area or close enough to drive. Clear your schedule for next Friday (Nov 7th) so you can come by. More details soon.


Freakin' sweet. Fridays I get off work at UCLA around 1pm. Please tell me this will be around that time and I will love Insomniac even more. Will the Insomniac offices be designated a no spoilers zone because I don't think I'll be able to beat the game by Friday (I usually get home from work most days at 8pm and need to be up by 5am the following morning)

Yeah I like how you become like an artillery unit when attacking nodes, but the bouncing grenades keep it from being total pwnage for regular use.
 
Special ops Coop Class

You know... I'm not so sure that Insomniac did the right thing here.

A lot of people basically want to play as a "sniper" and not be on the front lines.

The closest character to this is the Special Ops guy. Which means that you have these spec ops people who really don't want to sit there and feed ammo to the soldier.

Also, the shield can be depleted so quickly that your entire job is to feed ammo.

That's not exactly fun gameplay even if you are being a great team player. Firing spark balls and dropping ammo is how I played an entire session.

The medic has challenge in that you are free to run around quite a bit. Since you can shoot "healing shots" from long distance you are freedom to run around.

The soldier is a great grunt shooting character but the limitations on shield and ammo make him so gimped. He's the only guy who can run out of ammo.

I've had to quit games simply because no one wanted to heal and no one wanted to give ammo.

sorry for the crap quality. also for some reason it boots me out of psn whenever i start the game.[/QUOTE]

Maybe because it ain't released yet?

[QUOTE=UntoldDreams]I've had to quit games simply because no one wanted to heal and no one wanted to give ammo.[/QUOTE]

Complete opposite experience as mine. I play as a medic and I concentrate more on healing rather than getting kills. If a healer does it job as a healer, he'll have more XP. Hell, a medic with 50+ kills gets less XP than medic with few kills but 10+ heals. I ALWAYS heal and i am always there. Play with the cool crowd :P

yea but why boot me off psn? I could understand not being able to play online with it but booting outof psn is weird.
Tried 3 Blockbusters, almost had it at the last one but the manager came running over & told the girl not to sell it! It was the CE also :(
 
haha on the shot of the monster opening its mouth, the gun inside the mouth kinda caught me off-guard and I did this curious head-tilt + moving my head closer to the monitor to make sure I was seeing that right :lol
 
alright first EARLY impressions.

Remember how you played God of War 2 for the first time and could not believe that the first level was this epic........yea same deal here. It feels like the last level of most games.

There is still that sadness that i cant experiece this exact level with a friend but oh wells.

game is awesome so far. The worst thing i can say is that I cant find any in game brightness options. Is there even one in this game?

Guess I luck out then :) Me and my two PS3 gaming buddies live within two blocks of the Metreon.
 
Honestly the Scale is just amazing here. I am very impressed with it. I tons of Chimera and a huge robot thing in front of me and there was zero screen tearing. I cant imagine the carnage put on screen to actually cause it to tear.


Jstevenson: is there an in game brightness option i cant find it anywhere.
