The stat tracking looks awesome. Lots of cool features in MP it seems.

OMG, I love this game even more. The stats are awesome.

You can earn ribbons and medals, and you can also change the appearance of your character (not shown).

What is the Late Joining option for? Allowing people to join mid-game or not? That's nice. Also love the Party stuff. It was pretty useful in Halo 2.

Yes, I think so.

Did he mention
the mixed breed
in custom matches? Has that been confirmed now? I thought it was just a rumour before.

I've a question too about the buddy list in the game - is that just a custom 'skin' for in-game interaction with your PNP buddy list, like the way you can have custom interfaces to the Playstation Store? Or is it a independent buddy list specifically for the game, seperate from the one in your OS? Options like viewing people you recently played with etc. match options on the XMB, so I'm guessing it's the former, but it'd be nice to have that clarified.

I think he means both races on the same team, kinda like Halo 2.
The message list sounded like a combination in that it showed both your private PNP messages, the clan messages and so forth all on one list. I'm not sure though.

'If the clan is sending me messages, if my friends are sending me messages, if the system sends me messages, they will appear here.'

Right, probably, that makes sense.

Yeah, building on the PNP list for in-game specifics would be nice versus an entirely independent list. Well I suppose it can't really be totally independent since there's a universal login..it has to use the data from the PNP, so I'm guessing it leverages what the PNP provides "+ more". I hope so anyway.

And he mentioned a new weapon I don't think we have heard of before, the 'Dragon'.

Im gonna make a leap and guess that's the flamethrower. ;)

That Cheddar Gorge map seems to have a really good sense of scale to it. It's really big but it looks like they've packed it with all sorts of choke points, platforms and various cover to work with. I'm still bummed about the lack of vehicles but it definitely seems nicely tuned for on foot combat (as they've been emphasizing). Breach Mode should be a blast. Have they explained what the new Conversion mode is yet?

Yeah. What I think this game does (and most will) is getting the data from the PNP and use that within the game interface.

In the fourth video you can also see him pull up the predictive text input thingy to chat with the others waiting on the game - definitely looks like it's pulled up from the OS, rather than something specific to Resistance, which is kind of reassuring.

edit - beaten by Wollan.

edit 2 - also nice to see that the load times don't look interminable..although I guess we don't know if this is running of a HDD or BD disc.

This game just seems so polished, like insomniac has put in a lot of elbow grease in the making of this game. Really seems like they have been working on this game for a long time. I'm 100% confident in my purchase of this one come launch day. :D

Yeah. That's basically like PSP works. Every time you get to type in something, the standard PSP type-in interface pops up. Same with the save screen.

Resistence really does have a nice online portion. The Chedder George area looks great too.

I would suspect the PS3 supports a multitude of headsets in traditional style of the platform.
If you have a USB or Bluetooth headset I'm guessing the chances are high that they will work.

Regarding PNP messages again, what I think is the deal is that they don't have an overlay for it but that the functionality of it must be built into the game itself (until Sony chooses to add an overlay that is).

Yeah. Every time I walk into cell phones stores I'm tempted to buy one of those slick Bluetooth headsets for use with the PS3 :lol
But I'm not doing it till I get a confirmation it'd work of course.

If you see the 'blinking' image at the beginning before you enter the match, that is a filter that makes the image simulate a old and damaged movie clip. The same happens when you die as well though it also fades totally out in that case.

Edit: Noticed a couple of bugs fly by while he talks about the map.

2nd Edit: Looking at the stat screen, them having 'XP TO LEVEL' stats and such... this game will hook bad.
