Sony has been pumping out some nice compilations of their premiere franchises this year. God of War and Ratchet and Clank have received the bundle treatment. Now the Resistance series will be available as a total package later this winter. The Resistance Collection will include Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2, and Resistance 3. It will also include some of the DLC from parts 2 and 3.
Many of us put the long hours in; we sweated, we cried, we used bizarre alternative weapons. However, the fight appears to have been for nothing; indeed, resistance appears to have been futile as Sony announce the co-op friendly series Resistance: Fall of Man has no new additions planned in the future.
Zut alors! It appears that no matter which nation Amazon exists in, they always manage to leak information about forthcoming games. The latest Amazonian culprit is Amazon France. They have revealed that Sony plan to produce a pack containing all three Resistance games on May 16th. Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2 and Resistance 3 all contained co-op modes.
Insomniac recently announced that the Resistance series has been concluded, with CEO Ted Price simply stating in an interview: "We won't be making any more Resistances." This may be disappointing to some of us co-op-minded folks, as Resistance 3 was a pretty solid co-op experience (we gave it a 4.5 out of 5). The good news, though, is that Insomniac will be focusing their efforts on upcoming Overstrike, another co-op shooter. What's more is that Overstrike will be available on both 360 and PS3 platforms, unlike the Resistance games, which were Playstation only. If Insomniac is planning on making Overstrike their shooter franchise in place of Resistance, then that would mean that more co-op'ers would be included, which can only be a good thing.
This may not exactly be co-op news, but Sony's latest ad campaign for the PlayStation 3, called Long Live Play, is certainly worth watching. Not to give too much away, but the idea is how a player impacts the lives of the characters they play in modern day games.
There’s a lot to look forward to in Insomniac’s upcoming Playstation 3-exclusive FPS Resistance 3. For instance, the color brown! So much brown, the only way to express it in words is through song. But once gamers become accustomed to the superbrown, they’ll also have a whopping 59 Trophies to earn. The Playstation Blog recently published the entire Trophy list, which is full of spoilers and mildly clever commentary.
With all the hectic activity of a live awards show, some things never make it to air. That was the case for the full version of Insomniac Games' Resistance 3. The original trailer was cut down to two minutes for the Spike TV VGAs. Here's the full trailer, featuring more live action footage to set the mood.
Despite having nearly a year's worth of development still to go, Insomniac is apparently so far ahead of schedule that Resistance 3's campaign is playable "from start to finish". This is good news, as it means that they have more than enough time to tweak the campaign co-op, polish the game, and maybe even add in some little surprises.
Insomniac have released a handful of concept art shots for the upcoming two player co-op shooter, Resistance 3. While we never see our two new characters together, we do get a great sense of the atmosphere the game is going to convey in a war tattered world in the 1950s.
It seems that this generation will be defined as one of the last that we see platform exclusives. We've seen Bungie go from Microsoft to Activision for an upcoming multiplatform title, and now another major "2nd party" studio is Insominiac - famous for the Resistance and Ratchet and Clank franchises - are now partnered with EA to bring a brand new franchise to multiple platforms.
Ah, the rumor mill is turning early today!
We had already brought word that a new Resistance 2 Patch and Map Pack would be hitting the PlayStation Network today, but we just unearthed some new info on a co-op mode thanks to the PlayStation Blog.
As previously promised, Resistance 2 is finally getting a much-needed patch to fix the viral issue of a lack of saved progress in splitscreen co-op modes. Even better news: it's coming this Thursday (March 26th)!
Insomniac has just released a new patch for the 8 player co-op shooter Resistance 2. The patch is version 1.40 and it should be available by the time you read this. What does it fix? Lots of stuff, but the most important being the restoration of any character resets you may have had. Some folks have reported issues with level progression and found their character data reset to level 1. The good news is this patch should not only restore your previous character state, but tack on any progression you've gained since. So your level 20 medic for co-op that should have been a level 40 medic will really be a level 40! Very nice!
We looked at experiences like Team Fortress 2, in which there are dependencies on classes, and games like World of Warcraft, in which there are large amounts of people working in tandem, creating this kind of epic synergy to overcome these encounters that wouldn't be overcomeable as an individual.
We really wanted to focus on teamwork and the buzz that comes from people working together online, because even though there's some downtime when you're not playing together, the buzz is that much higher when the group locks together and everything falls into place.
